HOME HIGHLIGHTS
Great check-in experience95% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.
Great location95% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

This charming 3BR/2BA home in the heart of 78704 is literally blocks from award-winning restaurants, cafes, music venues, bars & more. It's historic and very South Austin in vibe but with new furnishings, beds & more.

Situated on Bouldin Creek with 100-year oak trees on the property, tile & wood floors in the home to keep cool in the Austin heat, modern amenities like Wi-fi & new Roku TV, but still funky enough to give you that 78704 feel you're looking for in this unique part of Austin.

Thanks, Miranda. I try to make it clear in the listing that the bathrooms are accessible through the bedrooms. It's really the only way to convey the layout to guests on Airbnb, so I'm sorry to hear you found the setup awkward. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the neighborhood. Cheers.

The house was everything we expected it to be. There was lots of space for 4 adults and 2 kids. The kitchen was well stocked for making breakfast and snacks. There was no need to cook any more than that since the house is walking distance to what felt like hundreds of restaurants…

Matthew’s place was in a great location, close to so much to do and see in Austin. Check in was very easy and Matthew provided a very detailed manual to answer pretty much every question I had. Overall great stay!

Loved staying at this little spot, good location, central and quiet. Everything was a quick car ride away but lots of fun little spots that were walkable too. Matthew was ultra responsive and incredibly helpful!

Glad you enjoyed my home and all of the many restaurants and cafes within a short walk. The bathroom actually does have a vent, and I try to make the door situation on the back bathroom clear in the listing for guests. The front bathroom does have a traditional door as well.
