Immaculate suite in modern home

House - Private room · Running Brook Drive, Austin, TX 78723, United States

This beautifully renovated mid-century home - located approximately 10 minutes (5 miles) from downtown Austin - is the perfect home base for any visitor.

Guest Access

Guests enjoy a private bedroom (queen bed) with ensuite bathroom as well as all shared living areas of the home: huge living room, great sun room, 2 dining areas, fully equipped kitchen, laundry with washer/dryer, large shaded backyard, cable TV (in living area as well as the guest bedroom), and wireless Internet throughout the house.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood, called Windsor Park, was developed in the 1950s and 60s. It's a great location, super-convenient to major thoroughfares, and only 5 miles (10 minutes driving or 30 minutes by bus) from downtown Austin. Within the neighborhood itself are lots of fantastic (locally-owned) amenities (restaurants, bars, etc) that are described in a welcome packet that guests receive when they arrive.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • Tim was a fantastic host, I can't thank Tim enough for communicating and being helpful in getting us situated since we were in such a rush. The room was very cozy and had everything we could ask for. The dogs are very friendly and he made us coffee in the morning which was very nice. I would stay with Tim every time I come to Austin! Can't wait to come back here and stay here again.

  • Tim's place lives up to the hype. It's great and so is he. His place is inviting and indeed immaculate and he's considerably more generous with his space than you can even convey in an Airbnb "ad".

  • Perfection. Airbnb needs to hire Tim to train Airbnb'ers how to do it right! House and the rented space were wonderful. It goes without saying that it was all just as Tim describes in the listing. He made access to the house very easy and has a very professional book with relevant information - maps, recommendations for local restaurants, etc. He has a warm and welcoming personality. In the morning he made cappuccinos and breakfast for us. We chatted for a while and then got on with out respective days. His 2 dogs couldn't be more friendly and loving. I missed them the moment I left. When I return to Austin you can bet I'll be looking Tim up on Airbnb!

  • It is our second time to stay with Tim. As a repeat customer, I am as pleased as ever-the dogs are great too!

  • Staying with Tim was a great experience for a first trip to Austin. His beautiful home is equipped with everything that made our stay pleasant and enjoyable. It was like being in a hotel without the hundreds of guests.
    Tim is a down to earth, affable guy who provided a great welcome packet, highlighting everything from restaurants to attractions for our stay. He has two wonderful dogs that added to the experience since my husband and I were homesick for our own.
    When in Austin in the future, we will definitely stay with Tim. Cheers!

  • Tim is great host, making sure you are comfortable and know where everything is. His home is beautiful, a midcentury classic that's been carefully brought up to date. And it's easy to get anywhere in Austin from his house.

  • What a immaculate home and experience. This is by far the cleanest, nicest and most tasteful home I've seen in a long time. Tim is an awesome host and a great and smart person. It was a pleasure having nice chats with him. At Tim's spot you got a great private space with own beautiful designed bathroom, a great large bed and everything your can wish for. Sidenote: really fast internet connection, which helped much working from Tim's space. The two dogs are gorgeous and so friendly. Thanks Tim! Will definitely book again!

    January 2014
  • My stay was brief, but Tim was great. His house is very nice. I was very comfortable. His dogs are quite pleasant.

    January 2014
  • This is my second time staying with Tim. The house is lovely and warm, the dogs are welcoming and so loving, and Tim...well Tim is a sweetheart!
    I was in an accident while staying in Austin and Tim offered for me to use his vehicle so I wouldn't have to get a rental. He even walked my dog with his lovely pooches and treated us with the utmost respect and such hospitality that I hope I can visit again soon.

About 5 years ago, I moved to Austin from NYC. I work from home, but also travel a great deal. My interests (when I'm not working CONSTANTLY!) are eclectic, and include theater, music, outdoor activities, good food, good beer and bad TV. I decided to host on AirBnB to make better use of the fantastic house that I've finally finished renovating. I'm happy to be making good use of my space and it's been fun meeting new people. I'm eager to make the experience of staying in my home positive, and welcome suggestions and critique from guests.
