Three rooms to choose from. Rent one or the entire upstairs of the duplex all to yourself.
This listing is for a minimally decorated bright room with a full size air mattress (a feather bed is included to make it feel even better than some real beds!) Writing desk. And a nice view from the window of trees and activity.
Private bathroom with shower/bath options and double vanity directly outside the bedroom door.
Fully stocked kitchen with utensils and dishes. Coffee in the morning is readily available and likely fresh fruit from the local grocery blocks away and within walking distance.
Free wifi. Washer/Dryer. Plenty of comfortable seating in the living room and lots of boardgames. Essentially your home away from home for your Austin stay!
Easy access to bus routes. 5 minutes from downtown and the popular east side bar scene. You'll be given a key to the house to come and go as you please.
Don't hesitate to ask if you have other questions!

I didn't have a chance to meet Alicia, but she made sure that I had everything I needed, if I had any questions or problems (once, with wifi) she was very helpful. She even gave us (there are other roommates) some sweets and little souvenirs - that was very nice :)
She is an artist and the house is full of inspirations, quotes, pictures and crazy stuff - I absolutely loved that.
But - before I cooked something, I cleaned the kitchen (shelves, microwave, countertop, sink) as this place definitely needs a thorough cleaning. If you don't care about the dirt and mildew in the fridge - you'll be fine.
House is located on the street where there is traffic 24/7, if you have sensitive ears, you might have problems at night (for me it was fine)
If you want to relay on public transportation (I did), just be careful!

I didn't actually get to hang out with Alicia because she was away for work, but can't talk highly enough of her roommates! Truly lovely to come back and chill with after a day exploring Austin.
Buses downtown are fairly convenient and for a princely sum of $2 for a day pass, an excellent way to get around town!
The house has a great creative vibe, but could use a good scrubbing. Alicia has a fab decorating style, was prompt to reply and made sure her roommate was around to welcome me and he was also generous enough to show me around Austin to get my bearings and get to the grocery shop for some supplies for the week. Really enjoyed my stay here!
Like we say in french "C'est la maison du bonheur!" which means this is the house of happiness. The housemates are the bests, they helped us so much discovering the best of Austin. They're really nice people, it was really easy to share things with them. The room is really nice, the bed extremely comfy, and the house is cool. You'll be surrounded by Alicia's arty notes and devices, which makes you want to be creative and determined.
If you're not driving, the house is at a perfect location. Many buses around, it's so easy to get Downtown in less than 20 minutes.
We had a wonderful time there, and will try to come back. Austin's such a cool city, and Alicia's home is such a great friendly place to stay.
