Bright and airy, peaceful and cozy, full of light and plenty of artisan touches. I truly love my home and I love sharing its unique beauty with others.
I have two bedrooms, a small office, two full bathrooms, as well as two of the most nap-friendly couches in Austin. It's an open plan house with stained concrete floors, a gorgeous living and dining area, a custom concrete bar, and a sweet well furnished kitchen.
I do have WIFI but no television on the premises to distract you from the awesomeness that is Austin.
Currently, I'm open to hosting someone in my guest bedroom for short stays. You will have your own bathroom, a comfy full sized bed, and the run of the house. If you have more than two people in your party then I can offer you an air mattress and/or a couple of comfy couches to sleep on as well.
I would like to rent the entire house out for ACL, SXSW, and F1 weekends but I have created this new listing for just the guest bedroom suite option. Please see my other listing for the whole house (with reviews) at https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/915150 if you are interested in more than the guest room.
Getting to Zilker Park can be a breeze if you want to ride the trail and avoid driving during the ACL weekend traffic madness.
During SXSW you will realize that you are in the heart of all the action. I'm located right off of Chicon between charming East 11th St. and very happening East 6th St. The whole east side comes alive during SXSW. You would be able to walk, bike, or bus to downtown in mere minutes...
My street is quite quiet and my neighbors are pretty friendly. There are tons of cool places within walking distance. Paul Qui's newest spot is just a few blocks away! Blue Dahlia, Quickie Pickie, and Franklin's BBQ is just down 11th. Tamale House East, bars and food trucks galore are right down 6th. East Side Pies delivers tasty pizza if you want to stay in ;)
Please contact me if this sounds like a good fit for your needs.
Interaction with Guests
I love the people that Airbnb has brought into my life. Stories, laughter, and adventures are more than likely. I will recommend endless cool places and events around town to you (if you so wish) and if I'm in town I will most likely invite you to join me to see music or art shows, go swimming at the greenbelt, or to eat & drink at one of the many fabulous places in my hood. I am also quite happy to leave you to explore Austin on your own (if you so wish!)
The guest suite is in the front "wing" of the house and has its own private bathroom.
East Austin is eclectic, artsy, colorful, happening, and becoming increasingly hip(ster!) I LOVE being able to walk or bike around to so many amazing places.
It's Texas so it's always more convenient to have your own car. I do have street parking available.
The airport is about fifteen minutes from my house.
There is a Metrobus stop right down the block from my house that will take you pretty much anywhere you might wanna go...UT, Barton Springs, SOCO, and downtown.
You can even rent sweet bikes from my friend Lee's shop down the street.
Other Things to Note
I am registered with the city and your 15% hotel occupancy tax is included in the total already.
Smoking is only allowed outside. I have two porches and a big backyard with a firepit where you can happily gather ;) No pets please.
The space is bright and inviting, as seen in the pictures. The bed is comfortable. The bathroom is clean, and the shower has good water pressure. The location is perfect for exploring East Austin.
Ish is welcoming, funny, generous, and a wealth of knowledge about Austin. Overall, it was an amazing Airbnb experience! I can't wait to visit again!
Ish was a perfect hostess. She was there to greet us when we arrived and was attentive and concerned about our comfort. She was very friendly, open, and was very helpful with info about Austin and the neighborhood. We liked the hip and unassuming area where the house is located, East Austin. I recommend Ish and here Airb&b room for anyone visiting Austin!
Ish is a super nice and funny person. We had lots of fun and a wonderful time with her. She has a lot of friends in Austin and she can give you tons of tips and recommendations. Her house is both cute and stylish and is very well located in Austin. We loved especially her beautiful front porch to hang out. The house is only 10 minutes by foot away to East 6th street nightlife action and there are many great neighborhood bars and coffee shops. Staying with Ish was the best decision for a wonderful and amazing Austin experience.
This was my first AirBNB experience and Ishrat made it super easy and awesome! My sister and I were in Austin from Oct 29 to Nov 4 for the F1 race. Ishrat's accomodations were exactly as listed and she was incrfedibly welcoming and friendly. We chose to stay with her based on the many positive reviews she had and it’s no surprise why she has received so much positive feedback. Ishrat gave great instructions for our stay and even provided recommendations for nearby eats. We only got to try a couple of the places and wish we had time to try more. Her home is well located as you can commute by bus to get to downtown Austin or take a cab (roughly $10-12 depending where you're coming from or headed to). The neighborhood was nice and we felt totally comfortable walking around at any time of day. If you’re looking to stay in the Austin area for anything I would not hesitate recommending Ishrat’s, we had the perfect experience! Thank you again for helping make everything so easy and helping us have an awesome time!
Ishrat was there to welcome my boyfriend and I to her home. She was very nice and helpful. She made us feel comfortable and right at home. Room and house was as described. We were not disappointed and would definitely stay with Ishrat again.
Ish was a wonderful host and the room was great. It is close to downtown and in a really interesting area in east Austin. Her house is so cozy and welcoming, we felt so comfortable being there. It seemed like we weren't just visitors, like we were actually embedded into the community. Most of the credit goes to Ish and her delightful house and hospitality! I'm going to look her up again when I make it back to Austin!
Ish was extremely welcoming. Her home is beautifully decorated, spotless and tranquil. The room is nice and spacious and I found the bed super comfortable. Ish is also a great Austin ambassador! She generously invited me to go out with her friends and I met some wonderful people trough her. The location was great, within walking distance to great restaurants, bars and an amazing yoga studio. It's also very conveniently located in relation to the airport. I will definitely try to stay with her again in my next visit to Austin and I would recommend her place to anyone visiting Austin. This airbnb experience definitely surpassed my expectations.

I'm a world traveling social butterfly who teaches creative writing when I'm not dancing or in/on/by the water. I think that everyone that you meet has a story to tell you, a lesson to teach you, and a smile to share.
