Enter your colorful, art and book-filled room through a private sunroom. All the art is original and from a variety of mostly local artists. Your own bath is across the hall. You'll have a small refrigerator, microwave and the means to make coffee or tea in your room. I'll provide a morning snack.
Wireless internet is available.
My pets are never in your space but you may meet Claire-the-cat at the outside door. Sally-the-dog loves to visit and often stays. So does my partner Brady and you may hear him playing the fiddle on the deck.
You have a private entrance and a private bath. My room is next to yours but I use a separate bath. The room is lockable if you wish. Non-smoking.
Interaction with Guests
I'll be present to welcome and help get you settled.
I am reachable by cell phone for questions when I'm out. While I can be very sociable, I like to give everyone as much privacy as they desire.
This is a great neighborhood for walking. There is a great mix of ages and you'll see lots of people walking dogs and strolling with little ones. Within a few blocks are eateries of every kind, coffee shops, bookstores and a library. And cool thrift shops!
There is a bus stop one block from my (website hidden)-Pac (Loop 1) is just 3 blocks away and will take you downtown or to Auditorium Shores in 10 minutes. At rush hour it can take a bit longer.
Other Things to Note
Because Mo-Pac is near, it's also easy to get to South Austin in 15-20 minutes. Music is everywhere as are theatres and movies.
I turn in between 11 and 12 but guests keep their own hours. I only ask for quiet if you come in late. (No drum solos!)
All else is good!
We had to arrive a little later than expected since I was stuck at work, but Beverly was flexible with the check-in time. The ambiance in the room was very peaceful and relaxing. Before going to bed, we got to meet one of Beverly's 2 puppies (super-charming)! 3
Beverly is a wonderful host and I truly enjoyed meeting her. I could not have had a better first airbnb experience. This is a quiet, great neighborhood in North Austin. I felt very at home and the description of the room is very accurate. The bed was very comfortable, so this along with the sun-room, great books and art work make this space very cozy and relaxing. I loved the private entrance, very convenient.
My son(14) and I had a great mini-vaca in Austin. Beverly was a wonderful host. The room's separate entrance was a plus and knowing that we had the appointed bathroom to ourselves was nice. The sunroom was convenient place to go when making phones calls and unfortunately for me having allergy/coughing attacks (not related to Beverly's house) so that I could try to avoid bothering anyone. It was also private enough to use as a dressing room. Every day Beverly refreshed delicious breads and fruits. The little fridge was perfectly stocked with waters and yogurt. Upon arriving we followed her directions since she was gone and met a sweet dog that stayed in the living room. When we later met Beverly we also met her other little dog, Hank. He just enjoyed quickly saying "Hi" when we would come in. The decor was bright and cheery. We hope to see this place again sometime. We only actually crossed paths with Beverly about 3 times. If I hadn't lost my voice I would have enjoyed speaking with her more.
Beverly's home is grounded and comfortable haven for travelers looking for a safe and quiet home away from home. My plans were last minute and fairly loose and she was completely flexible and made it work for me. Everything that I could have asked for, was right there, including a fridge, fruit yogurt, yogurt, fresh baked treats and the freedom to come and go as I needed to. Thank you Beverly!
Very lovely home and hospitable host. Communication was very good and home is in a great location. Having sunroom was good for keeping room quiet for baby to fall asleep in.
It was a great stay and Beverly and her husband were kind and welcoming. She left everything we needed in the room, along with some snacks, coffee and tea. The room is clean and comfortable.
Fabulous week in Austin, perfect stay at Bev's place! As usual! Bev is so attentive to all details a traveler might need: snacks, space, privacy, etc. Add to that her location location location (Allendale neighborhood is centrally located and easy to move to, from, and around in), and Bev's place is perfect. And her chihuahua Hank is a doll! I hope to return for spring break again next year!
About the Host, Beverly
I'm a writer, retired social worker, artist who has lived in Austin 40 years. I garden, dance, read, swim and tell jokes (only on request). (Usually). My partner Brady and pups Sally and Hank often visit so you may hear a fiddle being played on the deck. And a discreet bark now and then.
