Get a taste of the true "Keep Austin Weird" and a "Tiny Living" experience at the same time. It's like if HDTV and Pinterest had a little affair baby, this camper is it! Tucked away in a cute little backyard in Austin, this remodeled 80sqft vintage camper is a one-of-a-kind experience you gotta try! Rebuilt with modern amenities this thing has everything you need. It even has a shared fire pit & its own outdoor movie theatre! Visiting for the first time? Nothing says, "Welcome to Austin" more!

The space
Equipped with everything one could need to experience "Tiny Living" at its best in a controlled outdoor environment. It's quite nice and perfect for folks who want a quick taste for what this "tiny home" craze is all about.

Remember this is "Glamping" or Glamorized Camping. It's like camping in the very best possible way. You get amenities like TV, wifi, fire-pit, outdoor movie theatre, outdoor shower, full kitchen, local pour over coffee, and yes of course, it's temperature controlled. But at the same time, you are outside and a little more vulnerable to things like the weather and a few bugs here and there. The sounds of occasianal rain hitting the camper can be sometimes loud - but not always a bad thing. ;)

Note: Not recommended for anyone over 6ft tall because of hight of ceiling. Weight limit should not exceed 420lbs total. Thanks.

The property is shared with another camper with a common area fire pit in the middle. Not completely isolated, but far enough away from each other to experience the privacy you need. :)

Other things to note
Managing Your Expectations:
2 things to note that may be a little different....

1. The Toilet. Legally, our campers are not allowed to tap into to city plumping, so our solution was an RV toilet. If you've used one, essentially instead of it flushing down a pipe into a sewer, its manually done (by us). The only difference is a chamber you have to open/close before/after use. It may sit a little lower to the ground, but we've had no issues or complaints.

2. The Outdoor Shower. Many concerns I hear, if the weather is too cold, the outdoor shoer is a missed opportunity. Quite the opposite. The winter is the best time of year. The mist, the steam, the stars - It's truly the best part - Remember this is Glamping ;). The only time its not as fun is a heavy rain storm or strong winds. We can sometimes accommodate in our guest house if it's open.

Your camper shares a nice big yard with another camper in a part of town called "North Loop" - where Hipsters lived before it was cool and before they were considered Hipsters. Only 15 minutes from downtown and a few blocks from the community known as Mueller- the nation's first fully sustainable green community. Its here G00gle first tried their self driving cars. Here there are several shops, grocery options, some of the best go-to food spots, taco stands and honestly some of Austin's best happy hour spots, all just a few minutes walk or bike ride away.
Bike rentals also available for $10 a day.

During your stay
Perhaps my favorite part of Airbnb is getting to interact with my guests, but i don't always get to. I love to meet you upon arrival and sometimes see you off when you leave. I work on the property in my shop restoring other campers and Vans, so it not uncommon of me to share a few beers around the fire after work and chat about best places to eat and do in Austin.
