The Space

What isn't unique about Fisterra Studio?
Happy to send you links to Apartment Therapy profiles, and other press articles featuring the home.

From the Austinist: "Although no single location can embody the whole spirit of East Austin Studio Tour, Fisterra Studio comes pretty darn close. The 102-year old home and studio has been a stop on EAST since the first tour in 2003 and devoted art aficionados have flocked to the house year after year to see what homeowner and artist Jennifer has done with the place. The fully remolded home has the feel of a well curated gallery - from the sculpture in the garden to large canvases in the halls and a kid's bedroom that is to die for. Out back, among pets and plants, is the studio where she carefully creates colorful abstract paintings and sculptures."

Guest Access

Beautiful house, handmade art, ipod players, big back deck, fenced yard, bikes to borrow, canoe & kayak (you have to transport to water and back on your vehicle), great kitchen for cooking and entertaining. There is one off-street parking spot, plenty of on the street parking.

Interaction with Guests

I work from home, so happy to greet you on your way in and out. Often I'm either working hard or playing hard. Happy to recommend places to go. I will be present but quiet while you are here.

The Neighborhood

Great independent restaurants, great local bars with live music, easy to go anywhere and have a uniquely East Austin experience. Just a hop to downtown, just a hop to walking/biking/jogging trails on the lake.

Getting around

1 block to bus, 15 drive from airport, taxi service nearby, commuter rail in walking distance, Car-to-Go service nearby, pedicabs nearby, bike or walk. Walk to Convention Center, commuter rail stop.
Best neighborhood ever.

Other Things to Note

There is a chicken coop with chickens. I also have a kid's room with built-in twin beds. So for a family of 3-4, happy to rent both rooms for weekend stays.

  • Jennifer was a great host! She has a beautiful house in the very cool East Austin. The location was a short walking distance to lots of bars and other fun on East 6th Street. Having never been to Austin or Texas before, I received a really warm welcome from Jennifer and lots of recommendations on fun things to do. I would definitely stay here next time I am in Austin!
