Yes, indeed, this gem is full of surprises. Library worth exploring if only we had more time. Beds were surprisingly comfy even for those of us with compromised backs due to cancer. Location was perfect: east side Austin gem centrally located but tucked away behind a home with a small private yard so as to afford a bit of solitude and respite. The upstairs patio offers a lovely view of downtown lit up at night while in the stillness of the neighborhood. Should have stayed longer.

This home is in the perfect location and had everything we needed. Home was clean and very well taken care of. Our Local Manager Caity was AMAZING and was quick to respond to our questions.
Would defiantly stay again!

Fantastic location with easy access to everything in Austin while still quiet during downtimes. Terrific communication and Sam couldn’t have been better!
Amber .May 2019
Sam’s house is beautiful, loved the concept of it. She was so easy to contact, the location was perfect and close to everything, honestly one of the best Airbnb’s I’ve ever stayed at. Would definitely stay here again!
Tyler .Apr 2019
The blue house was a great place for our weekend getaway! It is modern and quirky and has all the amenities of home with a cool Austin vibe! From random cool reads from the library to the turfed patio upstairs this place was perfect!! Thanks for having us!
Chelsea .Apr 2019
Stayed here with some friends and felt safe and the house was clean and ready for us! Enjoyed it!
Aldo .Apr 2019

Kylie .Apr 2019
We loved our stay! It was clean, fun, and close to lots of things to do!
Eric .Apr 2019
This was such a nice spice to unwind at after a long day out in the town. The upstairs balcony actually has a nice view of downtown at night and is tucked away where it’s still peaceful while still being pretty close to downtown and other things Austin has to offer. Sam was really responsive and the space was very clean and overall a really great home. Would definitely recommend!
Kathryn .Mar 2019
Sam’s place was amazing! The house is beautiful and centrally located. It was very cozy and stylish!
Kelli .Mar 2019
Great location! It’s so close to lots of cool restaurants and fun things to do. The house was perfect for 2 people. The bathrooms were nice, the WiFi was fast and the upstairs bed is super comfy. Wish we stayed longer so we could check out the library a little more. It’s a super cool feature to an already great place. Thanks so much Sam!
Julie .Mar 2019
Sam is a great host. Very friendly and responsive and welcoming. All instructions were clear and easy to follow. There is a large bear in the living room that terrified my kids and took some time to get them comfortable so just a heads up if you have small children let them know. My kids have a wacky fear of taxidermy but we covered the animals and they were fine. Some kids would probably find it delightful. Our stay was lovely. The space is clean and perfect for a family or several people.

Great area and roof deck!!!
Zachary .Feb 2019
The owner of this house is one of my favorite authors. It was really awesome to go through his book collection in the library room of his home. Really special experience!
Tiffany .Jan 2019
We came to Austin for a fast and furious 24 hour stay. We absolutely loved the house (super true to Austin)! It was clean and centrally located and great for sitting and visiting. We loved the eclectic decor. We will definitely book again!

We loved Sam‘s place and wished we were staying longer than just one night. Everything was super clean and nice. We will definitely try to book this house again on our next trip to Austin.
Nora .Nov 2018
This was a great house for us, we were with 2 adults and 3 kids. As it is small I would suggest for 3 adults only but if you are with kids it is perfect. Must be really lovely during the summer with the roof terrace! All is small but everything you need is there. And the upstairs bathroom is small too but has a nice walk in shower. There is a park nearby for soccer, baseball or a little stroll so nice when you want to go outside. It is nice to see that in this area (street) you see a lot of new houses build so with a couple of years I hope the community is doing better and better. And the drive to downtown to do sightseeing is easy. Thanks for having us!
Erin .Nov 2018

Kristin .Oct 2018
Location was perfect. House is very clean and has everything you need. The library and rooftop deck were our favorite areas in the house. Easy check-in and Sam was very easy to communicate with. I would recommend this house to anyone. I will definitely be coming back to stay next time I'm in Austin.
Jasmine .Oct 2018
Ryan's home is modern, uniquely decorated and spacious. He has books everywhere (his personally authored books!) which makes the space really special. The house itself seems really new and there are two spacious patios on the first and second floor. I'd highly recommend Ryan's place for a comfortable stay in Austin.
Clara .Oct 2018
Cool space in a great location. Backyard and patio areas were a bonus.
Nely .Oct 2018
We stayed here during ACL weekend. It was about a 10-15 min drive to Zilker. Also very close to 6th st. The place is cute and cozy. I had great communication with the host, she replied to my questions quick and was very helpful.
Brandy .Sep 2018
Amazingly clean and perfectly situated home just minutes from downtown. Sam is very responsive to communication. Would stay here again, but not with four people. There are two beds, one couch not two couches as stated in the listing. We turned the dining area into another sleeping cove with the mattresses from the upstairs closet, so it worked, just wasn’t quite what we were hoping for being four adults. The quality of the rest of the house and stay made up for the sleeping arrangements. Highly recommend.
Sohpie .Sep 2018
Sam's place was super cool! Great sound system and I loved the deck. Lots of cool books around and directions/steps to stay and leave were clear and everything was straightforward.
Glenn .Aug 2018
Loved this property. It’s a great house that’s very close to everything. We used Uber to get around and everything fun was $6-10 away.

Jenna .Oct 2017
I rented the house for a bachelorette party and it was perfect! from the location to the house itself it could not have been a better weekend. The hosts were great and very understanding. I would rent this house again for any occasion!
Ashley .Apr 2017
The house is great! Very nice and clean with great character. The small space is well used and our group of five girls fit very comfortably with all of our stuff. Having two bathrooms with showers was awesome. The downstairs has lots of seating and a big, comfy couch which makes it a great gathering space. The upstairs bedroom is separate so it's quiet for early sleepers or phone calls. The location is close to downtown with good restaurants and coffee shops nearby. We stayed busy from Thursday to Sunday and had a blast in Austin! Thank you Ryan and Sam!
Bradford .Apr 2017
Close proximity to the city of Ausin. Very simple to set up an Uber or Lyft ride. Good security for the house. Inside was comfortable. Used the coach, and two beds for 4 people. There was also an aerobed for extra people. Enjoyed our time, thanks so much! Hope to stay again.
Michael .Mar 2017
