This beautifully renovated mid-century home - located approximately 10 minutes (5 miles) from downtown Austin - is the perfect home base for any visitor.
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.
Common areas of the home (living, dining, kitchen) are shared with me and my dogs.
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.
Also check out my 2nd listing on airbnb, which offers the entire home (not shared with me), including 2 bedroom suites. The 2nd listing is only available for rentals of 1 week or longer.
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!
Great place! Very convenient and comfortable!
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!
My stay was brief, but Tim was great. His house is very nice. I was very comfortable. His dogs are quite pleasant.
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.
Great place! Beautiful!
Tim was extremely helpful and friendly. A wonderful host and a fantastic place.
Ask him for recommendations!
Tim is a great, generous host and the place is truly beautiful. The room itself is quite heavenly and the bed is super comfortable. The dogs are totally lovable and welcoming. You'll enjoy a nice Austin vacation in this wonderful, quiet retreat!
