Recently remodeled charming little Eastside apartment with WiFi, fenced yard and clean, comfortable furniture! Friendly neighborhood, minutes from the bus or bike rentals, downtown and SXSW venues. Pet friendly so bring Fido. Close to restaurants, bars, coffee, hiking, and more!

Recently remodeled charming little Eastside apartment with WiFi, fenced yard and clean, comfortable furniture! Friendly neighborhood, minutes from the bus or bike rentals, downtown and SXSW venues. Pet friendly so bring Fido. Close to restaurants, bars, coffee, hiking, and more!

This is a unique layout of smaller units within a house that's surprisingly private. None of the neighbors use the yard except to walk to their own units so you'll have it all to yourself. Two people sleep comfortably in the queen sized bed and the couch could sleep a third. There's unlimited parking on the street in front of the house.

I will not be here during your stay but if you need anything, just contact me and I or my friendly neighbors can be there to assist with anything.

I love that in a gentrified neighborhood like East Austin I get along with all of my neighbors and have a community feel. Some neighbors pedi cab and others also rent out on AirBnB every weekend.

One block from the bus station, a few blocks from bicycle rentals, pedicab drivers everywhere (across the street) and an extremely cheap cab ride to all the action. 8 minute drive to the heart of downtown, 6th street. 10 minutes to the convention center, a major SXSW venue.

Melissa is an excellent host. She was very friendly, communicative and helpful. She created an awesome binder full of great information about Austin, things to do, places to see. We tried some of her recommendations, and they were all great. The place is smaller than I imagined based on the photos, but it was fine for our needs. The wifi was spotty at times, but I didn't go on vacation to work anyway :) I really loved the neighborhood. Easy walking distance to shops and restaurants on 6th, 7th, and 12th streets. Not too far from Downtown, and super easy to navigate to/from SXSW, whether on foot or by car. Extra points for being so accommodating of our small dog.

My name's Melissa and I'm super excited to rent my place out for SXSW! I'm a people person and I've been in service industry for over 15 years. My hobbies and interests include hiking, camping, painting, home projects, arcades, hosting movie nights or game night, sitting by the fire pit grilling with friends, finding healthy foods and a good book. My future dream is to run a self improvement Bed & Breakfast retreat that's affordable for everyone :)

There will be a HUGE binder full of any information you may need including menus, suggestions, a list of coffee shops, bars, hiking paths, gyms, the lake, tourist interests, travel tips and SXSW information.

If there's anything I can do to make your stay more comfortable I'd be glad to accommodate, just call, text or email :)
