Monte's house is really very nice, exactly as you can see in his pictures! Great location (about 30 minutes walking to downtown), great neighborhood, cosy and warm. If you need to eat something, there are a bar called Whip in and a small market (gas station) just some steps from the condo.
Having missed out on a convenient hotel for SXSW, myself and a friend stayed in Monte's condo for the duration of the festival. Our experience in Austin was awesome as it was our first time attending SXSW and Monte was a really great host. He was very attentive, checked in with me before the trip and also dropped by to check in with us during the trip. Having been an Austin local for many years, he was able to assist us in getting accustomed to the area quickly and also provided a list of things to do, see and eat (Lucy's Fried Chicken is the best!). Monte's condo is a small cozy condo nestled in a nice area which was suitable for the 2 of us with the 2 bedrooms and was in close proximity to groceries and supplies. Overall Monte was a great host, really friendly guy who was easy to communicate with and his place worked well for us. I would recommend Monte's place for anyone looking to explore Austin and it was a really great to meet and deal with Monte.
