Hey all,

So I'm going to be going to Austin next year (for the SXSW 2011 festival) for the first time, and I was wondering if anybody had any suggestions for places to stay? I did manage to find a vacation rental website called MetroFlats while reading Frommers but I would like other suggestions if possible.

There are lots of vacation rental websites--including VRBO (vacation rentals by owners), Craigslist, and, of course, the well-known hotels rental websites (, travelocity, expedia, kayak, orbitz, and priceline).

I'm wondering if this isn't just a cheap plug for the site you listed in your post.

I have a 2br 1ba vacation rental property in Austin but it is already booked for the music portion of SXSW : March 15-29, 2011. -snip- I know the city well and can help guide you if you know where in the city you are interested in staying. For SXSW somewhere near South Congress where the much of the action is and also will put you in the heart of the "real" Austin.
Good Luck,
