I was in Austin for the first time for a convention, and it was my first VRBO type of experience. This apt. was just a 10 min. walk to the convention center. I did this walk back/forth several times a day, in July, without a problem, so if you are going to a convention, this is a great option.

This place is close to everything! Within walking distance to east side bars/restaurants and also close to 6th street bars. Huge shower, very comfy bed... It was clean, comfortable, and the decor was so cute! Loved it!

Miserable flight and high fences around all the neighborhood properties looked ominous at 1:30am...BUT what a piece of heaven '902B' is! Top quality in everything- from the rainforest shower to the most comfortable bed, to the Cuisinart's timed coffee machine to the front-yard parking spot. Owner John was cheerful and gave us great walking directions and eatery suggestions. Getting under I35 into downtown would have been tricky without his guidance. Their dog, Azore, knew we were dog-saps from the beginning and charmed us to death. We were able to arrange a slightly later check-out time with the management company, making a 6pm return flight less difficult. We'd go back this weekend, if we could!

I loved the unit! The location was within walking distance to the Austin Convention Center, but I don't recommend walking at night. Uber/Lyft and pedicabs are great alternatives!
. Sep 2018
This apartment is absolutely gorgeous. The bed is exceptionally comfortable and the en-suite bathroom is ideal, with a large shower cubicle that I made good use of in the Texas heat! The fridge was thoughtfully stocked with tea and coffee and there are enough pots, pans and crockery to serve up a decent meal if you're so inclined. The gas stove in particular was a real luxury. The one inconvenience for me as a pedestrian was getting across the I35 to the Convention Centre, etc. but this was easily solved using Uber. It's also worth noting that I couldn't get the TV in the bedroom to tune into any channels. Those two tiny gripes aside, it was an absolute pleasure to stay at this little suite and I would definitely recommend it!

Very nicely designed and super clean apartment, perfect for two. Neighborhood is up and coming, and very close to the interstate, but this made for easy access to/from airport, all around town and for Westcave and San Antonio day trips. Did not have much interaction with owners, and that was fine. Would definitely stay here again!
. Sep 2018
The place was very nice! It was super clean, and the location is perfect! There is a plethora of bars and restaurants within walking distance or just a quick 3 minute ride share away. The check-in process was very easy, and if I had any questions either Critina or her property manager was able to answer my question by phone or text. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone staying in Austin!
. Sep 2018
Very modern and beautiful rental, great location, and fantastic amentities. Really felt like a home away from home. The agency and host were very accommodating about early check-in and check-out times. I would absolutely recommend this rental to anybody!
. Sep 2018
We received precise instructions before arrival, so access was very easy. They keys were in a lockbox, so we didn't have to worry about connecting with Cristina. The home was exactly as described. Very unique, clean and smelled nice. Comfy bed and great shower. It's a perfect size for 2 people. Easy access to 35, 6th street, UT and Congress. Loved the folder in the home listing local bars and restaurants! Cenote is right around the corner. Their lattes and breakfast were yummy! Loved Cenote's ambiance too. Will definitely stay there again!

Gorgeous apartment at a great value Everything was perfect - very convenient location and a gorgeously decorated apartment.
. Sep 2018
This rental unit is perfect for visitors who want to experience Austin like one of the locals. It is located within walking distance to great attractions and entertainment venues downtown, the eclectic East 6th Street, Rainey Street and much more. Emerson has taken great care to provide comfort, convenience, safety, and has anticipated the needs of virtually any type of traveler.

This was my first experience doing an Airbnb and it was phenomenal to say the least. It was perfect for Jonathan and I's first getaway together. The rental was very clean and had all the essentials we needed. We felt as if we were home, most importantly. It had lots of clean towels, sheets, and even a washer and dryer. It was close to a lot of places and within walking distance to Rainy st (about 10 min. walking). If I ever make it back to Austin I will try to rent this place again. Very much recommend it to everyone. Thank you Christina for helping make our getaway an even better one. Two thumbs up without a doubt!

We had a perfect stay at this lovely house! Very private, quiet and easily accessible. The house was immaculate with stylish decor and very modern appliances. We were extremely comfortable and wanting for nothing. Plus the location couldn't be better, 6th st and Rainey are walkable plus we loved Cenote for coffee and breakfast which was only about 3 blocks! I wish we never had to leave!!
. Sep 2018
We stayed in this cute and perfectly located apartment. It is a few blocks from 6th street and the path around town lake. The apartment is perfect! We wish we were still there!
. Aug 2018
Great place to stay! The furniture, artwork, and amenities were all very class. The place is set up like a guest house in someones backyard, although it still feels very private. The location is also perfect. It's just on the other side of the freeway from Rainey street (a popular bar & restaurant area). I was able to walk to Rainey in 8-10 minutes.
. Aug 2018
One of my favorite AirBnB finds and places to stay in Austin. Great location, easy parking, clean, modern and so close to downtown without being in downtown.
. Aug 2018
Great Stay! Great space, well lit, comfortable bed, easy access to the city

Loved this cute little apartment. Nice and clean and convenient to everything. We walked all over. Eclectic neighborhood. Property company was very quick to respond to a minor issue and resolved it. They were very helpful and nice!
. Aug 2018
The house was great. This was our 1st stay w/ABNB and we will definitely use again. Austin is such a great city and this location is close to everything. Beautiful home! So comfortable. We had a great stay!

Amazing place to stay and excellent service. Thanks so much for making our trip a memorable one :)

My husband and I spent a week in Austin (kid free!!) after her returned from his 10th deployment. Our life is busy, unpredictable, and hectic, and we needed the time together. The guest house is AMAZING! It was so nice. Sometimes people upgrade their houses and put their old stuff in the rental - not the case here! Everything was upgraded and beautiful. Stainless steel, tile backsplash, amazing shower. It was cozy and wonderful. They had shampoo, conditioner, soap, and all sorts of other toiletries for you to use. They've really thought of everything. The location is one of those questionable ones that they are gentrifying, so there were some things that were kind of like, 'Ummm...' But there's an alarm in the guest house and they have off-street parking in the driveway for guests. There's also cameras on the porch of the main house, right by the guest parking. We felt secure enough. It is right next to the highway, so it's kind of noisy. I downloaded a sound app on my phone and we used that at night. Overall, it was a wonderful trip and we would definitely stay there again!

We had a seamless stay in Austin under the care of Brooke! Everything was as it was described. I even forgot my glasses in the airbnb and they shipped them to me for free! Very nice, I would stay with Emerson again.
. Aug 2018
This home was exactly as described - perfect for 2 guests, decorated adorably, good location, etc. Hosts were easy to work with and everything was as expected. Would definitely recommend this property for a stay.
. Aug 2018
This is pretty much the perfect Airbnb. It's a very short walk to the Convention Center and downtown, as well as bars and restaurants on 6th Street and Rainey Street. If you head the other direction, it's an easy walk or ride to the bars, shops, and restaurants of East Austin. It's also well-appointed with wireless, sizable living room area, as well as a walk in closet and nice, clean bathroom. Check in was easy, as well, and the communication was excellent. No complaints!

Loved the place. Would stay there again.

Austin Getaway Loved our stay! The location is close to major hot spots!!
. Aug 2018
Came to attend a baby shower and hang out in the city a couple of days. The rental met our needs completely. The hipster decor was spot on! Will rent again!
. Aug 2018
Highly recommend this property to anyone looking around the Austin area. Prime location. This place is just as nice, if not nicer than the pictures!
. Aug 2018
Perfect Spot Very clean, organized, perfect location. Guest house is absolutely adorable! Loved how clean it was!
. Aug 2018
The apartment is close to downtown and SoCo. Immaculately clean, has everything you need. Large luxurious shower is a bonus. Had a great time and would recommend.
. Jul 2018
The guest house was simply impeccable. Extremely clean, well decorated, comfortable bed, and all the amenities you would need from blankets to towels to dishes and then some. Washer/Dryer was a plus. Easy to get in and out with the keypad, parking in the back was convenient. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Austin. Walking distance to Rainey and 6th and downtown area. East side is super cool too :) We miss it already and will definitely be back.

Great place to stay in the heart of Austin! Clean and comfortable!
. Jul 2018
I loved this property! It was the perfect size and location, and much more affordable for me than nearby hotels.
. Jul 2018
This place is fantastic! Super clean and just enough space for two people. I also loved the little patio at the door and being able to see the city right from the windows. The downtown area is right down the street, so if you don't mind walking a little then it's the perfect location. Just a heads up, if it's your first time in Austin they may not have bags available at some grocery stores and shops due to a plastic bag ban. I didn't realize it until I was already at the store, but found some reusable bags available in one of the cabinets later on. A couple of the best things I loved about this place is the gated parking and the shower!
