The space

My house is just on the outskirts of downtown in the nicest neighborhood in the city. The house is incredibly convenient to anywhere you want to go in the city. Tons of parking, cable, wifi, hammock, gas and charcoal grills, central AC, record player with record collection, surround sound, flat screed tv's, washer and dryer, complete fully stocked kitchen, fire pit, and much more. I'm a local restauranteur with 36 years of local experience and contacts. Happy to help with any and all needs.

Guest access

You will have access to the entire house and grounds.

Interaction with guests

As much or as little as you would like. I do like to meet guests at the house when they arrive to provide a tour and some special in sites on house operations and anything else they might need.

The neighborhood

Clarksville is the oldest neighborhood in the city. It has some of the nicest people anywhere on the planet. A grocery store, pharmacy, corner store, coffee shop and numerous restaurants are just a 5 minute walk from the house. The neighborhood also has many parks , historical houses, and one of the oldest fire stations in Austin.

Getting around

Bus stop three blocks away. 20 minute walk to downtown, 5 minute walk to grocery store and restaurants. 4 minute $7 cab ride downtown. 20 minute drive to the airport.

This is my home. Please treat it as you would your own. That is to say if you take care of your home in a clean, well kept manner. I have many nice things that my guests seem to enjoy so please take care of them so other guests can enjoy them as well. No pets do to the fact that pet hair can ruin the stay for future guests. I do love dogs, cats, and all animals though.

We wish we could tell you about the cute house we reserved but because Michael's previous guest decided to stay longer he offered us a choice of a very nice townhome or full refund a week ahead of our visit. We chose to stay in the townhome & although it was in a different area of town everything worked out fine & we enjoyed our stay.

Michael was a welcoming host. The house was a great stay in a quiet area. We were close to many of our activities for the weekend. The outdoor patio was awesome to hang out onext.

Michael was easy to get a hold of and responsive. The house is very eclectic and at home is Austin. It is in a location which is a short ride from downtown, in which we used the "get me" app to get around, as there is no uber. House was perfect for our friend get together for a short weekend of tubing and exploring Austin. Only thing we were disappointed in, there were no chickens, I was kind of looking forward to fresh eggs for breakfast. Would definitely stay there again, as it is a great deal.

I'm an outgoing 32 year old gentlemen. I love traveling, food, alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages, music, animals, sports, and gambling. I own five small businesses and employ over 150 pp.
I'm more familiar with my city ( Austin Texas ) than most and consider myself a fine host. Treat others as you want to be treated. I'm very active and spend alot of time outdoors taking part in many sports and leisure activities. Besides Austin my favorite places are, (in no particular order ) Lake Tahoe, Santa Cruz California, Costa Rica, New York City, and Las Vegas.
I like to read, cook, garden, and farm. We have a sustainable garden and urban farm on property that partially sustains one of my restaurants. Don't worry, no crowing roosters in the morning, just hens and ducks. Besides being a fine host I'm also a great guest. I'm a pleasure to be around, funny, keep a tidy environment for the most part, cook, and am one of the least selfish people I know.
My life motto is "The most important thing you will ever do in life is what you are doing right now."
