The Space

Hopefully the pictures speak for the comfort of this home. This is a modern home in walking distance to all that makes Austin one of the best cities in the country: restaurants, bars, clubs, museums, the Capital, food trailers, Town Lake and its amazing running trail, go tubing down the Colorado just a 3 minute drive away, world famous Franklin Bar BQ, White Horse saloon; way, way too much to list here. This is an incredibly comfortable home right on the pulse of the city. My home has a truly "Austin" feel with all the art from local artists as well as internationals and interesting memorabilia throughout. The place is spacious with a 27 foot ceiling and a custom library with sliding ladder standing 12 feet tall and very warm and unique lighting that really pops when the sun goes down.

Mi casa, su casa. Two, covered, gated parking spots are yours as well as access to the ground's bar bq pit and picnic table.

I may be out of town, but my friend Mari lives just down the street and will be happy to set you up and give you the low down on the city. Please contact her to set up accommodations (phone number hidden).

East Downtown Austin is the hip, hip part of Austin. You name it, it's in walking distance: bars, restaurants, art, music, parks, the lake, the Convention Center, UT the Capital... Across the street is the Saltillo Plaza where there is a fantastic farmers' market every weekend with live music. Speaking of live music, it's everywhere here. My favorite, the world famous White Horse Saloon, a 30 second walk, has the best honky-tonk dancing. The countless restaurants are fantastic with a food trailer park also just down the street. This home is one block over from famous 6th st, with all it's vibrant energy. Walk down to Lady Bird Lake and watch the largest urban population of bats take flight when the sun goes down. There is really just too much to list here, all in walking distance, or if you'd rather, take a pedi-cab; they're caddy corner from here. You'll love it.

Just about everything you want to do can be walked to, but the light rail train station is directly across the street (it's really silent) so is the bus stop. You're so close to everything though, that you won't need the light rail; I've never even set foot on it. The pedi-cab home base is caddy corner, and you'll never be at a loss for a cab. Two covered, gated parking spots on the grounds are yours. The airport is a 10-15 minute drive away. I-35 is a 2 minute drive away. You can rent a bike for $25/day from Pedal Pushers just a 2 minute walk away.

There is only one bed in the house (king-size temerpedic and way, way comfortable), though there is also an inflate-a-bed under the bathroom sink downstairs and the sofa too makes for a comfortable sleep.

I may be out of town, but my sister-in-law Mari lives just down the street and will be happy to set you up and give you the low down on the city. Please contact her to set up accommodations (phone number hidden).
Most of my renters are couples looking to explore the city. My home is absolutely perfect for that; the ideal launching point to take in the city and great retreat to come back to at the end of the day. I am proud to say that I am have never gotten anything other than a perfect rating and rave reviews from every guest who has ever come to stay as well as a "Super Host" award from AirBnB. I'm sure you will be just as happy here.

Bar B-Q /picnic area

I am often in town during your stay. If I'm not, my brother lives just down the street. He and his wife are more than happy to help you should you need anything.

Hello! I'm a pilot in the airlines and Air Force Reserves. Being gone as often as I am, I figured putting my home up could make for a win-win situation for everybody. Please kick back and make yourselves at home.
