Where You’ll Stay
An Austin Airbnb pad that reflects the city’s penchant for live tunes and trendy-but-artful aesthetics, that’s where. This abode accommodates four, with one bed, one bath, and a pull out couch. You, a few other humans, and your four-legged best friend(s), will have an eclectic nest to rest in after exploring downtown and beyond. 

Your squad will be perched in Hyde Park, the residential escape away from noisy bars and university riffraff. Don’t worry about missing out on the small-town charm of the South when you’ve got this place to come back to.

Why We Love It
Admire the artsy decorations with musical inspiration—the kaleidoscope colors may well exude energetic vibes for your adventures to come. Think loud decor, but cozy surroundings. You and the pooch can enjoy staring at the psychedelic murals while lazing around after a run around Mueller’s Lake Park.

This apartment is just minutes from downtown, and you can walk to the good stuff, like Salt Sow for duck fat fries and a chicken liver plate. If Fido prefers breakfast in bed, utilize the fully stocked kitchen to whip up something special. Either way, you’ve got options. We also love that it’s equipped with a pool for lounging, a gym (let’s be real, probably not happening but again, options), and a TV for post-sightseeing Netflix binges.

What You Need to Know
Stay for $119 per night, depending on the season. The host has a flexible cancellation and check in/check out policy, as booking allows. Bonus: no cleaning fee!

Editor’s Note: As always, we recommend that you check with the dog friendly Airbnb homeowner for specific restrictions on breed, size, or number of dogs allowed in the residence.
