Hardwood floors, open floor plans, kitchen and bathroom granite countertops, walk-in closet, a lovely patio with East Austin laid back and upbeat vibe! Wak to great spots in Austin, walk/ bike to UT! Guest bike, bus and a walking score of 95 too!

The space

The house is an amazing 3 bedroom-4 bath contemporary style residence in one of Austin's most sought after neighborhoods: Chestnut.
You will have your own fully furnished bedroom with attached bathroom. The kitchen, living room, and outside patio will be shared and is fully stocked and furnished.
The place is quiet, cool, tastefully decorated and safe. I live in the house but am so busy, you would hardly see me around !
Bars, restaurants and public transportation are within short walking distance hundred feet from the house.
You wont need a car at all unless you don't feel comfortable with public transport or biking. We'll provide you a bike and all information you'll need to have an awesome stay in Austin! We take great pride in hosting and show our love for Austin:)

If you're looking for a place to regroup when in town, this is the place for you!
And all I am looking for is someone who can treat this beautiful home as their own :-) Come enjoy life in beautiful Austin!

Guest access

Guests have access to a full kitchen, laundry, guest parking, bike and free wireless.

Interaction with guests

I am a full time health professional who loves to go out on weekends and on some evenings as well. I can be as helpful as you need me to while leaving you to enjoy the place all by yourself. There's a lot of information about public transportation, nearby restaurants, bars and delivery places available.

Other things to note

Our two 14 and 11 year old Boxer/Labrador mix dogs stay downstairs in a gated area by the kitchen. We love them and they get our full attention with daily walks and hikes on weekends.
But they won't be upstairs to keep ours and your area clean and prevent allergies.

We appreciate if you choose to smoke outside in the patio. There's a large outdoor patio right upfront next to your bedroom/bathroom. Unfortunately pets can't stay in the apt due to our 2 lab mix dogs...

I don't wear shoes upstairs in the house to reduce the cost and time spent cleaning, especially carpet and area rugs. I'd appreciate if you could help offset maintenance costs too:)
You can leave your shoes downstairs by the front door or by the stairway whatever your more comfortable:)

You're free to use washer and dryer, fridge and adjust aircon. Please don't forget to turn aircon/heat off once you leave if you decide to change settings.

My ideal guest is someone who will treat the apartment as their own :-)

Nicky, is such an amazing host and person. She communicated so clearly with me and available within minutes of texting her. She has a wonderful home which I felt comfortable, safe and cozy in. Great location also. I will be back and highly recommend her home to others! What an amazing experience. Top notch!!

I can't say enough good things Austin, Nicky, and her place in East Austin. Great location including Plenty of great music venues and places to eat very close by. Nicky is very knowledgeable about the city and will be able to give you tons of suggestions about things to do no matter what you are interested in. She is super accommodating and goes out of her way to make you comfortable. She is the only person I will stay with when I travel to Austin from this point on.

Nicky's place is actually fantastic. The photos shown on here really do no justice to the interiors of the house and how comfortable yet luxurious the place feels. Nicky's communication throughout my 10-day stay was perfect. She met every need I possibly could have had and had some fantastic recommendations of places to visit and events to attend during my stay! The bedroom is so cosy, and the balcony makes a lovely place to sit and relax after a day out in the sun. The area is incredibly quiet, even when cars are passing by you really won't hear it from inside the bedroom. The bathroom is fully kitted with everything you could possibly need to use but may have forgotten or, like me, didn't have the check baggage weight allowance for! Getting an uber from the house into downtown (and back, even at silly times of the night) was unbelievably cheap too, and almost as easy as simply driving yourself in. I truly can't recommend this place enough, and it's an absolute bargain for what you get!

Nicky is beyond amazing. On top of stocking my bathroom with toiletries and extra amenities, Nicky always made sure that I was comfortable and had everything that I needed. There's plenty of space in the bedroom and it's always nice to have my own bathroom, there's even a door that leads out to a balcony. The location is great, it's within walking distance to a bunch of restaurants and convenience stores and only a short drive to central Austin where there's even more shops and restaurants to choose from. Nicky is an incredible host, five stars all around, would recommend to anybody.

Nicky's place was awesome! Nicky is super nice and sweet. The room is super clean, the bed is great and the pillows are really comfy too. Nicky has so many suggestions of things to do, places to go eat, see and experience. I stayed there for a week and I probably would've needed another week to see everything she recommended. It was an awesome time!

I am an avid traveller who loves to look at World maps and dream about the next destination:-) Have been to over 40 countries. Nothing compares to the excitement and newness of arriving in a remote town! Pushker in India, Aswan in Egypt, Lombok in Indonesia and Kathmandu in Nepal are my favorite destinations:-) Can't live without travelling, good food and good companion!

While back home yes, I work hard and long hours in Health Care. When back home I love to visit friends around the country and make home comfortable and cosy. Love movies, checking out new bars, restaurants and hosting! Hosting allows me to travel through my guests.
