Interaction with guests

We love meeting new people and are happy to hang out and share our knowledge of the city but we are also respectful of our guests' privacy, so we generally leave it up them as to how much interaction with us they want.

We are, of course, always available for any questions or needs. If we are home, feel free to come around to the front of the house and knock on the door. I we're not home you can always reach us by phone or text.

Our checkin/checkout time can be flexible. If you are arriving before 2PM just check to see if the room will ready. We'll try to accommodate you. If we don't have a guest arriving the day you are leaving or we know they are arriving late, you are welcome to stay past noon. Just check with us.

We love kids (we raised one) but generally prefer not to have toddlers as guests since we do not consider our place to be particularly kid-safe. We love dogs but do not allow them inside the suite. They must stay on the fenced, mostly-shaded patio.

If you are lucky enough to snag a reservation here, your expectations really will be exceeded! This little suite offers a private entrance (really nice!), a super-comfortable bed, a closet equipped with coffee maker, coffee, breakfast bars and fridge and microwave and utensils. Another closet supplies extra blankets and towels (including big beach towels for your swim at Barton Springs), and if you really want to, an iron. There are comfortable couches, a desk, clock radio by the bed, books, etc., etc., everything you need or want to make your stay enjoyable. The house itself is within walking distance to the famed pool and walking trails, and a lineup of some pretty great restaurants. But the real attraction are the hosts. Michael and Luz are wonderful! They're fun conversationalists, have ideas to share on how to get the most out of Austin, and can't do enough to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. If you stay here, you'll have found the ideal spot to sleep and relax, and as an added bonus, have made two new friends . I will definitely be staying here again.

The most wonderful place in the perfect location. Friendly, helpful hosts and great coffee too. Comfy bed in lovely surroundings. It feels tropical with all the beautiful greenery outside the windows. Walking distance to Barton Springs - I'd love to come back.

Michael & Luz User ProfileMichael & Luz is a superhost.

We are a couple who love music, food, & travel. We love our city and love showing it off to friendly people from all over the world. We find people do the same for us wherever we travel which is why we often like to stay in homes rather than hotels.

Michael is a musician and DJ, among other things, and hosts a local radio program of Brazilian & Latin music called "Horizontes" on KUTX-FM. He speaks and understands a decent amount of Spanish and Portuguese.

Luz is an amazing cook who helps organize an annual Spanish paella cook-off here in Austin. She's originally from Colombia and, of course, speaks much better Spanish than her husband.

"We look forward to meeting you and sharing our part of Austin with you."
