This renovated mid-century - located approximately 5 miles from downtown Austin - is a terrific home base for any visitor.

The space

This spacious home, built in 1969, has been extensively renovated and features an expansive open living space: large living room, sun room, dining area, and fully equipped modern kitchen. There's also a laundry with washer/dryer, large shaded backyard, cable TV (in living as well as the guest suite), and wireless internet throughout the house.

Guest access

Guests enjoy a private bedroom (queen bed) with updated ensuite bath as well as all shared living areas of the home described above: living room, sun room, kitchen, laundry, backyard. Single space in the garage is available or (as most guests prefer) there is easy driveway parking.

Interaction with guests

Common areas of the house are shared with me and my dog, so some interaction is inevitable. Beyond that, interaction can be as much (socialize) or as little (treat the experience like a hotel) as you like.

Other things to note

Dogs are allowed but only on a case-by-case, pre-approved basis. Inquire if interested.

The entire home (not shared) is available for periods of 3 weeks or longer (but is NOT a bargain!!). Inquire if interested.

Tim was a terrific host and the room was exactly as described. It was perfect for us - quiet, dark at night, and close to the things we wanted to be close to. Beautiful home!

Tim's place is absolutely phenomenal. Truly loved our stay here. Basically 30 or less minutes by car to any place of interest. His little book of places to check out is spot on and he's really fun to have a conversation with. His place is gorgeous and while unassuming in the neighborhood. I kind of felt like it was a hotel but better. The photos of his place doesn't do it justice. Everything is very clean and you have your own connected bathroom. He also has these two very friendly dogs that we enjoyed playing with. We had some miscommunication about our check-in time so make sure you contact him a week or two before your trip to confirm your check-in time. Other than that I would definitely recommend his place to anyone visiting Austin. Thanks Tim for a wonderful time!

Response from Tim:
May 27th at 9:30am. Thanks for the feedback Edmund, and sorry that you had to wait a couple hours to check in. I wouldn't want to specify a required checkin time (which might be problematic based on flights, etc) and certainly don't need 1-2 weeks notice. I simply needed some communication about the very general timing of arrival a day or 2 prior to the stay; and hearing from you for the first time only 30 minutes prior to your desired checkin cut it too close for me this time. When I initially confirmed your reservation and asked you to "keep in touch to arrange timing for checkin," I should have confirmed that you understood what I meant. Regardless, thanks for the critique!

Tim's house is great for a quiet weekend getaway. Tucked in between the beautiful districts of Mueller and Windsor Park, you will appreciate the custom built houses around here. It has easy access to a nearby grocery store, other restaurants, and the highway (I-35). First entering Tim's house, you will be greeted by his two friendly dogs. The bedroom is big and contains all the amenities you need. Tim is a very professional host, easy to work with, and respects your privacy. I highly recommend this place!

Tim is a wonderful host! He's very easy to talk to and accommodating--my partner and I had a lovely time staying at his absolutely gorgeous home and getting to chat with him (and pet his dogs!). Place looked just like the photos (clean, well decorated, comfortable, stylish), and it's about a 10-15min drive to downtown Austin, like the description said. Definitely stay here!

We were in awe of this beautiful mid century modern house which we could have happily lounged in rather than visit Austin. Tim is such a great guy and perfect host. We were in love with his dogs, Rufus and starky .We have two dogs so waking up in this gorgeous home to those sweet faces made us so happy. Tim was very helpful directing us to restaurants and places to go. I used to live in Austin but it's been a long time and the city has changed and grown so much. We absolutely recommend this rental and hope we can come back next year.

Freshly renovated place with great mid century modern design. The suite was excellently appointed with all the amenities. Tim is very friendly and welcoming host. He has 2 great dogs who love to meet new friends. His neighborhood is great for a quick jog and plus there is a park a block away! This is in the midst of a lot of new development so there are lots of new shops and restaurants nearby- maybe the nicest grocery store that doesn't specialize in organic food I've ever been to. I would recommend anyone stay here, because it's in a nice neighborhood, but also close to the best food and coffee shops.

I recently moved to Austin from NYC. I work way too much (from home or traveling) and am trying to improve my work/life balance. My interests: outdoor activities (especially those that can include my dogs), music, theater, design, cable news, good food/beer/scotch, film (especially classics), and bad TV.

I decided to host on AirBnB to make better use of my space with all airbnb proceeds dedicated to the home's renovation and maintenance. As an added bonus, it's been great meeting an extremely diverse range of people with whom I'd never cross paths otherwise.

I'm eager to make the experience of staying in my home positive, welcome suggestions and critique from guests, and look forward to being your host.
