About this listing
Small room with comfortable full sized bed and lots of closet space. Conveniently located off Stassney and Emerald forest. Close to bus routes and easy to get around town.
This is a 2 bedroom 1 bathroom duplex that has a cozy 10x10 bedroom awaiting you!
Diverse Neighborhood. It's a little suburban but very diverse and interesting. I get around often on bicycle and have no trouble. Close bus routes and easy access to major roads and highways. Quick drive up 1st or Manchaca to Downtown activities.
Full Kitchen. I have everything you need in my kitchen to make a great meal, including pots, pans, organic spices, a Vitamix, a juicer and I usually have an onion and some garlic on hand :-). I don't have or use a microwave.
Beautiful Yard. I have a beautiful front yard with all the elements: sun, water, earth, air, and ether. There is a picnic table and lots of shade.
Living Room. My living room is simple with a futon, 2 comfortable chairs, a dining table. There is no TV but free WIFI for streaming.
Parking. There is an abundance of parking on the street.
Proximity to Recreational Parks:
Mary Moore Seawright Park - 15 min drive
Garrison District Park - 5 min drive
Town Lake - 15 minute drive
Barton Springs Pool - 15 minute drive
Proximity to FOOD: As I said, It's a little suburban so driving is easier but there is a great little mexican place (Cilantro's) and pizza shop (Milano) within walking distance. Good cheap Thai (Tuk Tuk) and Strange Brew Coffee just a little further away.
I try to minimize my environmental impact as much as possible. The house has rainwater collection, gardens, fresh herbs available and I don't use the a/c or heater much and often have the windows open. If you like it super cold in the Texas summer or hot in the winter, this is probably not the place for you.
Bus stop just 1 block away.
Bike loan may be available.
Other Things to Note
I'm not really looking for people to stay longer than 3 months and I prefer booking the first month only through airbnb. That way we can make sure our lifestyles mesh. Just let me know how long you're looking to stay and I'll make sure the room is available. I also don't book more than 2 months in advance. Sorry to all you planners.
All those eco friendly expectations. Recycle, turn off lights, take short showers. Use a fan if you're hot, put on a sweater if you'e cold.
