Your room is on the second floor of our open and sunny home. A queen bed awaits you for restful sleep.
We are in a quiet neighborhood just yards from a 160 acre nature preserve with seasonal ponds, native fields and groves!
It takes about 25 minutes or less to ride a bike downtown or the 238/338 bus which is one block away or drive it in about 20 minutes.
We also have a wood-fired handmade earthen oven for pizza, bread, brownies, roasts, pot pies, etc!
Emily and Stephen have a wonderful home and were very accommodating during our one week stay for SXSW. Their home was very tidy and gave us great convenience as it is only 15 minutes south of Austin (way more available than where I stayed in Round Rock last year). They offered us pretty much anything and everything in their fridge, and even surprised us with a full breakfast one morning. If you have business in or near Austin and are traveling as a single or duo party I'd definitely recommend you give their place a shot!
Emily and Stephen were very friendly and welcoming. I needed help using the Austin public transit and they went above and beyond to help me navigate. Also provided food for breakfast.
The home was generally quiet and relaxed. I'm good with animals but if you're not okay with a cat or dogs this isn't the place for you.
-difficult to get back from downtown Austin using public transit (buses stop around 10 or midnight)
-other guests may be staying at the same time
Photos were very accurate but they don't capture how warm and friendly Emily and her pets are. It was a very relaxing stay and thanks to the well-equipped kitchen, even managed to bake some cookies during my stay. Would definitely stay here again.
Emily was wonderful! The room was adorable! I would definitely recommend anyone staying here. The location was perfect for all of the great places that South Austin has to offer.
It was a pleasure staying with Emily and Stephen. They are wonderful hosts, very kind and easy going! They gave me many helpful tips on places to visit in Austin. Their house was very tidy and their pets were very friendly.
Emily and Stephen are awesome hosts. They made us cake and pizza (straight from pizza oven they built themselves). Suggested us places to explore, and places to eat. The two dogs are very gentle, obedient, and loved to play. The place is clean, quiet, and comfortable. We shared a bathroom with another airbnb couple but we did not have any schedule conflict. I hope i get to visit again some day!
Staying with Emily and Stephen was great! They were very welcoming, offered us food and some fantastic beer after a stressful day of travelling. The room was spacious and public areas were welcoming and comfortable. Captain and Bronco (the dogs) are friendly and well behaved; they'll leave you alone if you're reading or eating, but will come for a petting if you want them to.
The neighborhood was quiet but not too far out of the way. Public transit is easily accessible and it's a short drive up South Lamar into downtown, or over to cool neighborhoods south of the river.
It's definitely worth staying here!

My name is Emily and I am a transplant from Colorado. My husband Stephen and I have two dogs, 1 kitten and 1 chicken. We live next to a 160 acre nature preserve on a quiet street with wind chimes in south Austin. We hope to see you soon. Thanks for stopping by!
