Our place is close to fantastic East Austin, with some of the best restaurants and bars I've ever been to. We're 2.5 miles away from the center of downtown via the 20 bus. Our house is cozy and comfortable. We have a 600 square foot porch, nice hardwood floors, and a just-redone kitchen. Get downtown quickly, or if you want to stay in the area, go to any of the new restaurants in East or work it off at the largest bouldering gym in America, Austin Bouldering Project. Pets welcome for a fee.

The space

This is a quiet space in the middle of the coolest city I know. Within 10 minutes, you're in the heart of East Austin (20 mins by bus), and another 10 puts you on 6th Street. We are half a mile from the largest indoor rock gym in the United States, and half a mile from the beautiful, 10-mile long Walnut Creek Hike and Bike Trail.

Guest access

You'll have access to the entire house. The porch, grill, and fireplace are yours to use as well. Bikes available on request and for a fee.

Interaction with guests

We will likely not be around for most of the stay. We will supply breakfast basics and coffee.

We stayed here for 3 nights with my wife, my sister, her husband, their baby daughter and their 2 (small) dogs. It was a pretty comfortable stay overall, and we were within a 10-15 mnt ride to anything we needed. Mike was always responsive and helpful with suggestions. Cleanliness could've been better (3/5).

A friend and I wanted to do a last minute weekend trip with our dogs. I didn't get to meet Michael, but his response was usually pretty quick. He was cool about letting us bring our dogs for a very reasonable fee. The house is located in an old neighborhood that looks like its undergoing some regentrification. The house and grounds were pretty clean. The house has a huge patio in the back that was very enjoyable to lounge around during the evening. There's also a propane grill and fire pit. There is a garden out back as well. The beds were pretty comfortable and the bathroom was nice and clean. The kitchen was fully equipped. The rate could have been a bit lower given the location. Overall, I would stay again.

My parents stayed at Michael's place of my graduation. Check in and check out was super easy! The home is cozy and centrally located. Really enjoyed the grill and the huge outside deck.
