Interaction with Guests
We'll usually be in town, so we're happy to answer any questions you might have!
We're less than 4 miles from downtown, 10 minutes from the airport and close to the Greenbelt, Zilker Park, Barton Springs, S Lamar & SoCo...
You can take bus route #5 directly to downtown. It's a 20 minute ride north and leaves from just down the street, on Bannister Lane. For parking, we have a long driveway with plenty of spots for cars to park.
Other Things to Note
During regular weeks/weekends, we'll be in the main bedroom and our pets will be in the house. See our other listing for renting just one bedroom.
Please leave the house in the condition that you found it. If you can strip the bed sheets and leave them in a pile on the floor, that'd be lovely!
What a fantastic home in a great location. The home was clean and even better than described. The host was unbelievably friendly and accommodating. Our group of five had a great stay and would highly recommend this home.
Very cool place!..perfect for ACL. It has everything needed, in addition to a nice projector and some fun board games. They keep the place really clean and cozy, and dealing with Alexa was a pleasure. Hope to be back again
Alexa was absolutely wonderful and accommodating! She made sure we had everything we needed and was very flexible with us on timing. She was also very quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had. Their cute house was perfect for our trip to Austin for SXSW!
Alexa's home was just as it was described on the website and we were very pleased with the accommodation. The accommodation was clean, modern and in good condition. I would have no hesitation in recommending Alexa's home to other parties.
Alexa and Erik's place is great, such a well-designed, cozy, and inviting space!! Alexa and Erik were out for the weekend so we weren't able to meet them, but they made sure that we felt at home by being very friendly, communicative, and quick to answer our questions about what to do in Austin!!! The bedrooms, living room, porch, kitchen and overall space was very homey and inviting, and made for a fantastic stay and experience--I will definitely stay here again my next time in Austin!! Plus, their two cats are so adorable!! Thanks Alexa and Erik for opening your home to us and making our time in Austin memorable!
I had a lovely time staying with Erik and Alexa at their adorable little house in Austin. Their house was conveniently located, clean, and pleasant. The spunky little dog and snuggly cats are also a plus for me. Alexa is also great a giving recommendations for places to go/ things to do in the Austin area, so don't be shy about asking!

About the Host, Alexa
Erik and I moved to Austin in the fall of 2012, from the Big Island of Hawai'i! Before that we lived in Manhattan & Brooklyn for Alexa's graduate school; and before that was DC for undergrad, but we're both originally form the West Coast (Seattle & SF).
We love meeting new people, eating great food & traveling! We're in our mid twenties and are fun, responsible and love giving advice on where to go around both downtown and in the Hill Country.
During major festivals, like SXSW, the entire house is up for rent. Otherwise, we'll be staying in the main bedroom...
We're both laid-back and flexible, so feel free to contact us even if you're just thinking about coming to stay in Austin! We have two cats & a small dog, but will be taking them with us during major festivals (if you're severely allergic to pets, please don't stay here, but we do clean & vacuum extremely well!). We love to have people over and collect good stories, so please come stay with us and share some good adventure travel stories.
