Best Airbnb in Austin! Can't ask for a better location. 2 blocks from amazing cocktails at Whisler (and East Side King food!) Minutes walk to great east side locations and just a quick 20 min walk down 6th to get downtown. The house is super luxury, equipped with the latest home automation features. The keypad lock on the doors make check-in incredibly painless and no worrying about logistics of managing "who has they key." The bedrooms are very comfortable and quiet - exactly what we needed to recover from the craziness of SXSW. The house guide is the most detailed, easiest to understand, well-written I've seen at any Airbnb. Can easily understand how to work the high-end AV system, automated lights, door lock, etc. Love the art on the walls too and the floating dining room table. Very beautiful house! Overall - the best Airbnb I've stayed in and I highly, highly recommend it to anyone who wants to check out everything Austin has to offer.

I rented Eric's house for my entire team to stay at during SXSW and it was, hands down, the best Airbnb experience I've had. Eric is a super attentive host and made sure that we had everything we needed. The house location is absolutely perfect for Austin - Close enough to be walking distance to downtown, far enough away to be quiet and peaceful. Eric has clearly put a lot of thought into making his house the ultimate Airbnb experience. A few highlights: The keypad lock at the door meant my team didn't have to juggle a key and coordinate. Everyone could come and go as we pleased. Another thing - all the linens for the extra beds (couches and air mattresses) are super organized in bins - no digging though closets guessing what goes where. Additionally, Eric even installed shampoo + conditioner dispensers in the bathrooms because few people travel with shampoo. The house guide is extremely well written and easy to find whatever you need too. Overall, it was a high-end luxury hotel experience but in a house in the heart of the super cool east side neighborhood. I wouldn't hesitate to rent Eric's house in the future any time my team visits Austin! P.S. Probably the best stereo system + AV setup in any Airbnb as well!

I'm a software developer from Austin, TX. At heart, I'm an engineer and enjoy working on ridiculous projects. In the past year I've made a 10 foot diameter soccer ball, and a printer out of legos. I'm currently working on a giant inflatable igloo, and an art project involving many burnt-out lightbulbs.

I also really enjoy the East Austin nightlife and food-truck scenes.
