I'm a web guy at UT by day and a musician by night when I'm not being a dad to my 3 yr old girl.
I would highly recommend this house to anybody planning a trip to Austin. I was there for my sister's bachelorette party and it accommodated all 10 of us! Thanks so much for letting us stay here!
We came to Austin with our whole company because we are moving there. We had 8 of us in the house and we fit very comfortably. Thank goodness for the open fireplace, because the temperature dropped to zero while we were there! The location is brilliant. It's close to a huge park and swimming pool as well as lots of shops and restaurants and Downtown.
Jason is an excellent communicator and was very helpful with everything. Also Turnkey did a great job of making things run smoothly when we wanted a cleaner mid-way through the reservation - we stayed 3 weeks!
We were a big group of 12 friends for the F-1 weekend flying in from all all around the country and other countries. Had a great time there in Jason's place. It is walking distance to the main bar/food street in SoCa and a 10 dollar taxi ride from downtown (6th street). Great boot shop walking distance also. Jason is a great communicator. Everything is very easy in the house. There are enough space for parking and for sleeping and for conversations. The kitchen is fully equipped for a big party like us. Great experience!
Response from Jason:
We are so glad that you enjoyed the home, Julia. You were a wonderful guest and are welcome to stay with us anytime.

My group had a blast in Austin! Jason was a dream to work with! He made the entire process seamless and was extremely responsive through the whole reservation and rental process When we arrived at the house we were pleasantly surprised to find an adorable goodie basket and any staples we would need like coffee and creamer. The house is in a perfect neighborhood within walking distance to South Congress and a short cab to downtown or Rainey street. I would definitely recommend staying here and hope to come back soon!
Jason was very responsive and helpful with recommendations for things to do around town. The location was great, easy walking distance to South Congress street. The place worked out well for our group of 5.
We had a fantastic stay at Jason's house in March 2013. We were 6 adults and 1 baby and most of our guests were in Austin for SXSW. The house was perfect for this as its really close to South Congress and an OK walk down the hill into town. About 30-40 minute walk to the Convention Center. I think everyone found it nice to escape downtown and come back to this calm area. Jason's house is in such a lovely neighbourhood with a great park close by and lots of nice residential streets to walk around when me and the baby were fighting our jet lag! The house was clean and we loved the goodies that Jason left for us when we arrived. Even though it was quite hot outside for March, the house stayed cool and we didn't even need the AC.
Prior to our arrival Jason answered all my many questions really quickly and helpfully. He also took delivery of a baby mattress for us. Jason couldn't have been more helpful. We borrowed their bikes and used their BBQ which was a great bonus too!
Thanks Jason and hope we get to come back again!
This was my first experience using Airbnb and this host and house set a very pleasant standard. The house is clean, maintained and well-stocked. The host is quite available without being intrusive and the house is in an ideal location. A perfect setup if you're looking for something spacious, accessible to the SoCo neighborhood and authentic to the colorful, relaxed Austin vibe.
Great house in a quiet SoCo neighborhood. Jason also has an incredible vinyl collection, and a very well equipped kitchen. A very accommodating and helpful host indeed.
Our stay at Jason's house could not have been better. He was very informative about the house, the area, and everything else we asked of him. The record collection that everybody mentions really is no joke. I was anxious to see if it lived up to the hype and it definitely delivered. The area is also great....we took several walks to the South Congress area for food and drinks and it was a cheap cab ride downtown when we needed it. We didn't bother renting a car since everything was so accessible. We will hopefully be able to stay here again when we return to Austin.
Great tucked away house walking distance to S. Congress! Jason was a great host to my band and I. We enjoyed the eclectic selection of Vinyl and the peacefulness of the area.
