Interaction with Guests

We will be staying in the other room but offer you total privacy and freedom. We are often busy, rarely home and quite respectful. We will stay out of your hair! (Unless you really want to party.) We have one dog- a Blue Heeler Border Collie mix that is older and incredibly trained, obedient and loving. Sometimes the dog goes to our friend and neighbors doggie daycare for your stay- so if you prefer no pooch, please let us know and we will send him on his happy play date. Trust me, he loves it!

The Neighborhood

We are in the heart of Austin's growing Eastside. This side of town is growing fast and is full of diversity. From full on farms to hip hangover brunch spots - we have you covered. We live just one block from a great coffee house that is open 24 hours, has friendly staff, internet and great food and drink. We are also a block away from a new little grocer- full of healthy snacks, kitchen staples, and local brews. We are close to the nightlife and a straight shot to the town lake trails. Yoga classes also available just blocks away!

Getting around

Bike rentals are just blocks away and we are easy access to all the major bus routes. We are walking distance to several hip streets on the east side- full of breakfast tacos, food trailers, fresh foods, and lone star beer.

  • Adriene and Will's place was awesome. They have a super cute house with a great bed. We got there a little later than planned but Will was there to greet us and even gave us some places we could go check out that night. In the room was a great little welcome set up with some waters, treats, and a page about some places to go and things to do. We rented bicycles from Windmill which was great (they suggested them) and Will even gave us a ride to pick the bikes up and told us about a breakfast place right by there.

    The room was great. Very comfortable and relaxing. We all shared a bathroom but no one was ever in anyone's way (I don't think). We were staying for ACL and going out at night so we didn't really spend a ton of time at the house but It was great to come in and see Adriene and Will at the cute little breakfast nook and talk about the bands we saw that day (they were at ACL as well). It was like friends or roommates seeing each other at the end of the day. It made for a very unique and welcoming experience.

    Though we did not see them very much, when we did it was comfortable and friendly. The house is cute, we felt very safe staying there, and relaxing. It was a great place to stay for my birthday. We absolutely loved it and would definitely stay here again and recommend staying here.

  • This was the absolute perfect place for my stay in Austin! Adriene and Will were great hosts, incredibly inviting, and made my friend and I feel right at home. There's something so comfortable about their home that truly makes you feel utter relaxation. The location was great--we walked a bunch but also borrowed their bikes which was a perfect way to see the area/check out the nearby restaurants, etc. I absolutely recommend to anyone, especially if you are looking to add a bit of exploration into your trip! I can't wait to visit Austin again!!

  • The house felt like home, cozy and spacious. My pup loved the large fenced backyard! And their dog Blue as well. Staying with Adriene and Will made the first month in my new city feel just like home. They have great recommendations and key spots to hit listed out for you upon your arrival.

    I would recommend this Airbnb to anybody cool, hip and adventurous! :)

  • This couldn't have been a more wonderful experience. The house is adorable, quiet, roomy, cool. If you want yoga in the morning, the yoga room is beautiful with mats and accessories, and a studio nearby. A bike was available. Adriene is wonderful and charming and I wish we'd had more time to chat. Friendly Austin is made friendlier here.
