The Space

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.

Guest Access

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.

The Neighborhood

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!

Getting Around

There is a bus stop one block from my house. Mo-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.

House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events

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!)

Note: Your bath is across hall from bedroom. Our room nearby but we use a different bath. It's possible to run into one another at 3 am.
All else is good!

Austin, Texas, United States · Member since September 2013

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.
