Perfect house, quiet convenient neighborhood, excellent host!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very clean, well-appointed, newish-construction home with a fabulous deck that is perfect for a BBQ or other entertaining. It's far enough outside of downtown to be nice and quiet and away from SXSW madness (we were here for SXSW), but close enough that a Lyft will have you wherever you need to be in 10-15 minutes. The host was incredibly accommodating and we had everything we needed for a perfect week in Austin. Thank you!

Great location and clean

  • 4 of 5

Everywhere we wanted to go was under a 10min ride. Close to 6th st and the university. House is nice and clean and the master bathroom is amazing. Amy was very easy to get in contact with if needed and was great for advice around Austin!

Conveniently Located to hip East Austin & Rail

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the MiriamHoustATX was superb! The house is perfectly appointed for a large group, to include fully stocked kitchen and fridge (even local beer), nice patio w/ grill, lots of bathrooms, plus it is steps from the Rail line and just minutes from the hip East Austin/Manor Road eateries and bars. Downtown is a four minute drive and the lakes, Greenbelt, hiking/swimming are nearby. Our trip to Austin to for a quick summer vacation to visit friends was terrific b/c we could fit everyone under one roof and skip downtown in a gif. We will rent again on our next trip from Beaver Creek, CO.

Worked well for us

  • 4 of 5

The beds were comfortable, nice kitchen, close in, clean. We had seven adults and had plenty of space. Only negative was the futon is not really suitable for an adult.
