There are great outdoor spaces, including front porch, large back deck , large back screened in porch.

The linens, towels and bedding are all new/close to new.

We also have items for babies and children if that would make your stay more comfortable, including pack n play, baby gates, booster seat and toys. There's a swing-set in the backyard.

The house will be professionally cleaned prior to your arrival.

Guest access

Guests will have access to everything but the backyard office and the garage, although there is plenty of parking in the driveway (4 cars) and street. There's a keypad to enter so we don't even have to be here at the start of your stay.

Interaction with guests

We'll be available for questions during your stay if you need us although you'll have the place to yourselves. We might be available to meet you and show you around at the start of the stay; we will definitely be available via cell phone for questions and have contacts locally who can take care of any problems.

The neighbourhood

The house is one block from St. Edward's University. Walking distance to Curra's (great interior Mexican restaurant), a bit further, to South Congress Avenue and all it has to offer -- restaurants like Snack Bar, South Congress Cafe, Boticelli's, Torchy's, etc. and the world famous Continental Club for live music. It's a quiet neighborhood just on the fringe of the action.

Getting around

You're a quick ride hailing app/bus/bike ride from downtown Austin and also to the Austin City Limits Music Festival. Questions about Austin and our proximity to events? Just ask.

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."
