About this listing
Enjoy your own room and bathroom in a cute little eastside bungalow just a 15 minute walk from lively East 6th Street!
Great location, right near Boggy Creek Park/E 7th Street! Your bedroom is in its own wing with its own bathroom and features a comfy queen futon with springs that make it feel like a firm mattress rather than a futon. For an extra fee ($25 per person), we can accommodate up to 4 people by putting a queen air mattress on the ground in this room. There's also a big fenced-in yard with fire pit, kitchen fully-stocked with appliances/utensils, dining area, private bathroom, laundry room with washer/dryer, wi-fi, Wii, Netflix, easy parking... and, most importantly, it's close enough to walk to events that are downtown!
We are conveniently located near East 6th Street (home to the Grackle, Liberty, Shangri-La, Whisler's and more) and epicenter of many more bars and outdoor stages during the SXSW), East 5th Street (Yellow Jacket Social Club, White Horse, the ND), East 8th Street (French Legation), East 11th Street (Longbranch, Kenny Dorham's Backyard), East 12th Street (King Bee, Full Circle), Weberville (Lost Well, Gourmands, Dog + Duck Pub). We are also just several blocks from an HEB grocery store for all your grocery/beer shopping needs, and close to multiple food trailer parks and restaurants (Blue Dahlia, Franklin Barbecue, Casa Colombia, Takoba, Justine's, Hillside Farmacy, Eastside Showroom, Buenos Aires Cafe, Quickie Pickie, Eden East, Eastside Pies, The Hightower, Paperboy and more!)
At the end of our block you'll find peaceful Rosewood/Boggy Creek Park-- a great place for walking pets, picnicking, or taking a dip in the nearby (free) public pool.
You'll enjoy your own room and bathroom, laundry, wifi, parking, and proximity to central and east Austin!
Interaction with guests
My husband and I usually keep pretty busy, but we will help guests with as much info as they need (suggestions for restaurants, instructions for taking a bus, directions around town, etc.)
Also, our dogs Chef and Foxy are super friendly and adorable. Our two sweet cats are super shy and can mostly be found lounging in the laundry room... you may never even encounter them during your stay! :)
I love that our neighborhood is so central to everything, yet it's on a loop of a street nestled against a park, so it feels hidden away too. Our neighbors are all very friendly too!
Several bus stops are very close and cabs can be taken downtown for about $7.00 (Ubers and Lyfts for even less usually). There is also a nearby light rail. For more detailed info on the public transportation, visit the Cap Metro website.

I am a freelance journalist who writes mainly about food and travel so I am often on the road and love using Airbnb! My husband Carson and I live in Austin, where there is ALWAYS something fun to: seeing live music (of course!), discovering swimming holes, hiking on the Greenbelt, yoga (at one of our awesome donation-based studios!), relaxing at Barton Springs with a book, exploring the city by bike (it's a very bikeable place to live!), picnicking (possible year-round!), kayaking on Ladybird Lake, eating our way through all the delicious restaurants and food trucks, bar-hopping, two-stepping at one of our city's remaining honkytonks, BYOB mini golf & rollerskating, karaoke, bowling, lots of driveable and delectable Texan daytrips, sporting events ranging from beer league softball to minor league baseball to college football....not to mention, there seems to be a festival of some sort almost every weekend here!
Hope to meet you soon, either in our city or yours!
