All five star reviews! This listing is for an absolutely delightful vintage Airstream (circa 1969) 2 miles east of the University of Texas, 2.5 miles away from downtown Austin, and a stone's throw from the Mueller development! A perfect spot for people wanting to explore the city or seeking a retreat to get some creative work done! The airstream was remodeled in 2013, with an open layout and lots of room to hang out in. Kitchenette with plenty of ways to make food and AMAZING COFFEE.

The space
Warning for the cold: we are facing a very very cold wave in austin the next week. There’s a radiant heater and heated blanket in the airstream, but it’s still an airstream, so more open to the elements. Please be aware of this before booking!

This airstream is a dream for one or two people (or a small family!). It has been rented for short term and slightly more long term stays to plenty of musicians, university professors, parents visiting their kids in Mueller, and everything in between! It's a perfect guest suite, complete with a shower (with very hot water!), full sized toilet, and a kitchen with a hot-plate, toaster oven, mini fridge and everything you need to make coffee.

It's been remodeled in a very minimalist and uncluttered way, so it's a perfect retreat to relax or come get work done.

Where you’ll be

Austin, Texas, United States

The airstream is located to the side of our property, and has its own guest parking spot as well. We're located right off MLK which is a busy street- while we're separated from the street by a fence and parking lot, at night, there is an ambient noise of cars (but this is masked by the blasting AC!).
While we're located on the ‘cool’ East Side, we're also within walking distance of the Mueller development of Austin- which means you're walking distance to some of the best walking/running trails in Austin, an awesome farmers market under an old airport hangar in town, and only half a block away from the famous Blue Starlite theater- hop over to watch a movie outside almost any night of the week! In addition, the house is close to Manor street, which is full of bars and restaurants. We had no idea when we moved in how awesome this location was, but now we thank our lucky stars every day.

The location is super close to everything, but feels almost like you're in the country. Across the street, our neighbors have an amazing property with plenty of cactuses and trees, and its wonderful seeing the sun rise over their property every morning!

I've lived in Austin since 2001- 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 live in East Austin with my husband Chris, little boy Rooz, and little baby Caspian. I also have a podcast where I teach people the Persian language- it's called Learn Persian with Chai and Conversation. I love traveling, yoga, good food, and excellent design.
