About this listing
My house is right in the sweet spot of the infamous 78704 South Austin neighborhood. It's less than 10 min to downtown, but the house is tucked away in a cul de sac that is so peaceful you don't even know you're in an urban environment.
Welcome SXSW Guests!
Our home is a two bedroom one bath with room for a total of five people. It's close to downtown; the bus stop is two blocks and is 10 min from downtown. We have internet, cable, and a large private backyard with a deck full of fabulous lounge furniture to relax on. Although we are close to downtown this is a quiet retreat and our back yard is one of the best features and great for entertaining or just napping in the hammock. We have a full kitchen with stainless steal appliances and a restaurant style gas range. The two bedrooms are comfortable in size and will allow privacy when needed. The sunroom is a great lounge space or can be an area for an air mattress for an additional two people if needed. I have an air mattress that can be used.
There are coffee bars and restaurants less than a mile away that offer hip diners a true austin 78704 experience. Bouldin Creek is less than a mile away as is Polvos Mexican restaurant, which are must do's for any Austin visitor. I'll leave more local info in the house folder so you can eat and drink where the locals do!
This is a great home close to downtown, but just far away to truly relax; we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Interaction with Guests
I'm available via text or phone before and during your visit. My goal is to make your stay at my home not only memorable but fantastic. That's why I have such great reviews!
My home is located in the iconic 78704 zip code. It's a diverse neighborhood just outside of downtown that boosts the motto "keep Austin weird" and it's full of great townie bars and restaurants. I can fill you in on these great place so you can live like a local and be on the insider track.
We have a great public bus system and a bus stop two blocks from the house. It's a 10 min ride to downtown.
We ask that you lock the door when you leave and treat our home as if it were your own.
This house has a sweet, cool vibe and provides a nice base in South Austin - we accessed downtown using cabs and buses, but you could cycle too.
There are two decent bedrooms and the bathroom is clean, comfortable and simple. The whole space has a relaxed grown up vibe and we particularly like the outside deck for a morning cup of coffee or late night conversation (and hawk and woodpecker spotting). Perfect for two couples, particularly if being super-central isn’t a priority. Grateful to the owners for the bonus beer they kindly provided :)
Can't fault Ray or her amazing house in any way. Really stylish place with everything you could need, lots of space, great garden and lovely friendly hosts.
Regular bus at the end of the street gets you into town in 15 mins too which makes it a great quiet spot to hang out in just out of the centre.
Not only was Ray's home immaculate, but Ray was an awesome hostess as well! She was very pleasant to communicate with. Overall, it was a wonderful trip. I strongly recommend this home to anybody visiting Austin.
About the Host, Ray
My husband and I live in this home in the hip South Austin neighborhood zip code 78704. It's 10 min from downtown by car or bus, there's a bus stop two blocks from the house. There are also great local restaurants and bars in the neighborhood that I'll recommend in my Austin local book for our guests.
We work hard and play hard, we enjoy traveling and living life to the fullest and have decided to open up our home to others that feel the same way.
