About Mike Beisman

I came to Austin in 1970 to go to UT, fell in love with Austin, and have lived here ever since. I have lived in my house for 21 years and watched this city grow all around me.

Mike Beisman purchased this house in 1971

Why Mike Beisman chose Austin

I raised my daughters in this house and both graduated from Austin High. One graduated from UT and the youngest will graduate from Colorado this year. Kids are gone now, I tease them about renting out their room.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 out of 5
Couldn't have asked for more. Mike was great at showing us the ropes of the neighborhood and what was available nearby. If you are planning on going to the bar/restaurants on 6th street this location is perfect. Very short walk to get to the fun. Lots of towels and bath supplies were included, and any dishes you may need. We had 6 people staying there for 4 nights and it was very comfortable. Definitely going to try and stay here again on our next Austin visit.

Thanks, Mike!

Great house, ideal Location

  • 4 out of 5
The house is in a great location, just a few minutes walk from the bars and restaurants on the West side of downtown Austin, a 15-20 min walk to the heart of downtown, and 25 min walk to Barton Springs. My parents were over from the UK visiting me & my husband and we went to Austin for a weekend city break. The house was ideal with 2 separate bedrooms and a nice clean living room and kitchen area. Mike, the owner was very welcoming and was there on our arrival to show us around and give us local advise on places to visit during our stay. I would definately recommend staying here and would happily stay there again, it was clean, well equipped and perfectly located.

Home away from home

  • 5 out of 5
A couple of friends and I were looking for a place to stay during SXSW last min and found Mike's spot. It was the BEST option we could of choose. We were running late because of traffic and Mike gave us driving instructions to avoid downtown traffic. He also had everything available at the house many things I brought for the trip I didn't need because everything was int the house. Mike let us of local diner which was excellent and the whole foods which was walking distance. The house was in perfect distance from the main sxsw attractions on 6th street. Looking to come back again next year!! A++

Perfect House

  • 5 out of 5
Four of us (two couples) stayed in this house for a weekend while we attended a friend's wedding over the weekend. Mike waited for us (9 pm arrival) at the house to give us the keys and a tour of the house. He really made us feel like the house was our home for the weekend. The location was great for walking, or was a short cab ride to anywhere we wanted to go. There's a 24-hour diner (among other restaurants) and Whole Foods two blocks away, and the state capitol and Texas Roller Derby (Palmer Events Center) are about 15 minute walks (in different directions).

The house has a full-sized refrigerator and w/d, stove, coffeemaker, toaster, microwave, pots and pans, and cable tv; basically, the house has pretty much everything you'd need.

We would definitely consider renting this house again if we ever make it back to Austin, and would recommend to anyone traveling there.

Great House in the middle of Downtown

  • 5 out of 5
We rented Mike's house for a wedding we were attending. The house is tucked away, quite and private, in the middle of downtown. The house was super cozy, extremely clean, and very comfortable. Wholefoods was just down the street and it is walking distance to most everything. Mike was awesome, he recommended great places to eat and things to do. We will defiantly rent again on our next trip to Austin.

Great House for Downtown Austin Getaway or Festival

  • 5 out of 5
6 of us rented Mike's house for Austin City Limits and it was perfect for walking to the festival and then taking advantage of 6th street afterwards. We rented south of Zilker last year and unanimously preferred Mike's location. The walk is on pretty flat terrain and last year we had to deal with a big hill!

We also found out about a surprise Franz Ferdinand show through Twitter and probably wouldn't have been able to go if we weren't so close to downtown.

House was very clean with plenty of clean towels and sheets for 6 people! We are considering renting again.
