Private room in a 3 bed 1.5 bath house located super close to all the SXSW festivities. Only 6 blocks away from the Austin Convention Center and located conveniently right around the corner from East 6th St. and Downtown. Easy access to SXSW events.

The space

Our charming home was built in the 40's and is a stacked duplex close to East 6th street, Downtown, Rainey street and the up-and-coming nightlife spots on Cesar Chavez. It's also close to Lady Bird Lake and running trails. It's a really great spot for SXSW since it's so easy to get around. We love it here!

Guest access

Your room will have a king size pull out bed in your room. Guests will share the living area, kitchen, and main bathroom with hosts. There is a half bath with a toilet and sink as well. You are free to use the kitchen whenever and store any food items you may want or need during your stay. There is also a small side yard and smoking is allowed outdoors.

Interaction with guests

We're social people always looking to meet others. This is our 7th year attending SXSW and we can recommend lots of things to do and eat around the area. We're here when you need us and we'll stay out of your hair if you prefer that as well (we'll be out and about most of the time anyway).

Other things to note

We have two friendly pups (they will bark when someone comes to the door but don't be alarmed). There may be other guests staying in another room in our home while you are here during your SXSW stay.

James and Melissa were incredible. We visited for ACL and they were super helpful in planning our mini vaca and finding local bars/restaurants to check out.

James was an excellent host. He picked me up from the airport, recommended the best places to eat, was responsive when I had questions during the stay.

James and his girlfriend turned a negative SXSW trip into something positive. This was my first AirBB experience and what started out from the booking side as a nightmare turned into a nice experience at James house. The room was clean, house was a 10 min walk to the venue and he made me feel welcome and that I had a friend willing to help if I needed it. To make a long story short, someone stole my bag with my computer and wallet on the first day. I was without money ,ID and no ability to navigate the craziness of SXSW. James and his girlfriend went out of there way to help me put my SXSW experience back on track. He was even willing to send me my clothes back that I left at his place to my address in DC. Good, honest people are hard to find if your ever in need of a place to stay these guys are the real deal. Thanks so much for all you did....

Response from James:
This is what I was able to obtain from (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) translate: "People who care about dogs should avoid them. Host is a very good person" Ryo was an excellent guest, was very clean, and was out of the house most of his trip. I picked him up from the airport to make his trip a little easier. He only had one interaction directly with the dogs and I find it unfortunate that he had an issue with the dogs. In our description, the dogs were mentioned. It stated as follows: "We have two friendly pups (they will bark when someone comes to the door but don't be alarmed)." The dogs were kept in our room the remainder of the time he stayed with us and were only taken out of the room to go outside. Additionally, I had significant correspondence with him prior to his arrival and he never mentioned having an issue with dogs.
