Interaction with Guests
Guests can live here very privately. I'm also happy to talk with you and provide advice about Austin.
This is a quiet, residential area.
It's best to have a car here but a bike comes with the room, so you can also bike to stores and cafes. There are buses in the area. You can also put the bike on the bus and take it to the lake.
I will need to see identification at check in. Keys will be provided at that time.
Come and go as you please, LOCK UP AFTER YOURSELF and clean up after yourself in the kitchen please.
USE OF SPACE
Feel free to use the deck and dining area to eat. Feel free to sit in the living room.
I'll do my best to make your stay as accommodating and relaxing as possible.
I play the drums and love music and dancing and can tell you all about the music scene in Austin. If you want to perform at an open mike, there's a venue near my house. I can also tell you about the swing and lindy hop dance scene. I spent a decade in Berlin and speak fluent German. I just spent 3 months in Denmark learning Danish. I also speak some French and Spanish. I am very well-traveled and enjoy meeting people from other countries and places. I'm also a swimmer and can tell you about the awesome pools in Austin. If you're visiting Austin for the first time, I highly recommend watching the Austin episode of "The Day Tripper," hosted by Chet Garner. It's a PBS TV show about towns and cities in Texas. The Austin episode focuses on South Austin, which is the part of town I live in. If you look for the show online, you'll find the website.
