Other things to note

Prior to listing on airbnb we had listed our home with a luxury home rental specialist, who left the following comments that we think really captures our place and town:

"Decision to rent a home vs. hotel rooms for SXSW was not an easy choice. Would the facility be too far away? Would it be "cool enough" for customers staying with us? Most importantly, would it capture the unique Austin vibe that drives so much interest and enthusiasm for SXSW? Answer to all three is ... YES. Super clean. Great layout. Great size. Great outdoor patio. To the homeowners that allowed us to rent their home ... THANK YOU."

This was our second year with Steven for SXSW and he was a gem as usual. Everyone was very happy. Gonna try and get his place again next year too!

Steven was a wonderful host. His house is charming, in a great location, and has great amenities. Check in and check out were super easy and he let us know if we ever needed anything to text and he'd get back to us. Highly recommend for family trips.

The house and Steven were amazing. If I bring the kids back to Austin, I'd absolutely book again. We were in town for the half-ironman race. My wife and kids (5yo & 3yo) came a day early. Steven went out of his way to make sure they would be ok and that the boys would love the home. When we needed a little flexibility on the departure, Steven was open to working that out. His care for our comfort was also really so appreciated. The home is perfect for families. There were play tables and toys, a super kid-friendly backyard and everything was childproof and safe. It was all super clean, plenty of space and honesty just felt like a 2nd home. Compared to other options or hotels it was worth paying extra for the kids to be so comfortable. 5 stars!

Everything about this home was exceptional. From Steven's flexibility with our arrival and departure to his generous welcome gift of some local Texas beers, we had an outstanding experience. I would not stay anywhere else in Austin!

Great house off South Congress in Austin. A ton of things to do nearby, with downtown and the capitol a short drive away. The house was perfect for our family to have a great weekend. Steven was great about checking in to make sure we had everything we needed. The screened in porch was a great place to chill out and relax. We had a blast hanging out at Zilker Park nearby, took a bat cruise one evening followed by a UT football home game the next day. Hook 'em! Would definitely book this house again. Thanks Steven!

Very comfortable place to stay! Clean and modern feeling. This house was great for our group. Located in a quiet neighborhood, but close to restaurants, bars, and nightlife. Definitely highly recommended!

My name is Steven and I live in Austin with my wife, children, and longtime companion Lucy, a spinger spaniel mix who is just about the most perfect dog ever. I enjoy sharing our home and city with others and exploring unique places near and far through AirBnB. Baseball, too. I love baseball.
