The Space

This is a newly renovated house with restored original wood floors, and has simple modern design inspired by boutique hotels in Austin- this means mid century modern sensibilities and plenty of succulents!

The house is located only a couple of blocks east of downtown, and is very close to all the downtown activities. East 6th street (where a lot of the action is at these days) is only a 10 minute walk away. Plenty of restaurants and bars are within walking distance, even though the neighborhood itself is very quiet and serene. The best of both worlds.

You will be provided with the highest quality clean towels, and highest quality Egyptian cotton sheets.

Both bedrooms have queen sized beds. A fully stocked kitchen is also available with everything you need in order to make a meal.

Amenities include:
CENTRAL Air conditioning (a major plus in Austin)
Coffee, with French Press coffee system
Topo Chico (the best sparkling water ever made)
High Speed Internet
Television with Netflix

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Excellent - comfortable place to stay. This was my second time to stay here

    June 2014
  • Great house and location, exactly as it's pictured. We never met our host but she seemed very nice. We had some issues with check in and communication on the day we arrived -- the key hand off didn't go as we discussed and we couldn't reach our host by cell phone or email. This was a little stressful because we had our baby with us. But, we were able to get in 2 hours after we had planned. Despite that issue, we'd stay again.

  • What a great place to stay. Two good sized double bedrooms, fantastic lounge-diner, great shower, clean, modern, all you could want. Quiet neighbourhood, within walking distance of the Capitol.

  • Everything about my stay here was great. Leyla was quick to reply, made sure we had all that we needed and had some very helpful recommendations. The neighborhood is very nice and there are a number of restaurants and bars within walking distance. There is an Austin B-Cycle station a short walk away and that was a simple way to get around the city. Stay here and you'll have a great time.

  • We stayed as a group of friends at Leylas house for four nights. It is a beautiful, clean, new and great little house. Its centrally located and we could drive/walk to see super cool things. We loved it and would come back anytime.

  • Leyla was a great host: easy to get in touch with and super helpful. She leaves a great list of restaurants/bars/activities to help you plan your trip. The house is just as pictured, and was the perfect size for our little crew (me, my husband, our 18mo-old). The location is a good launching pad for Austin. There are a couple of places within walking distance (Hillside Farmacy and Quickie Pickie, to name a couple), but know that for the most part you will need a car. Most fun places (UT, SoCo, SoLa, etc.) are about a 10-15 minute drive. Not a big deal, just worth mentioning so you aren't surprised if you don't have a car. Thanks for everything, Leyla!

  • 2nd time in a couple of weeks staying in Leyla's place. Perfect once again. We will return.

  • What an amazing time we had in Austin. The house was a gem and really centrally located. Perfectly accessible to downtown Austin (about 10 minutes drive). The house had everything we required; a home from home! Very clean and well cared for.
    Leyla was our host and was extremely helpful; had great chats about Austin, especially as we are both foodies; her advice on various restaurants was invaluable.
    Infact, we loved Austin so much that we are returning in a couple of weeks.
    I can thoroughly recommend the house and Leyla as a great host. Fabulous!!

I've lived in Austin for 11 years- went to the University of Texas at Austin to earn a degree in architecture, and now work as a designer of restaurants, bars and houses in town. I love traveling, yoga, good food, and excellent design.
