About this listing
Comfortable, beautiful home with natural light, great trees. Easy access to downtown, east side, airport, Mueller Trails, Austin's great food, University of Texas, Dell Children's. Great night's rest on organic mattress in quiet neighborhood.
The space is inviting and inspired. People comment immediately how comfortable they feel here, and how well they sleep. Great neighbors who all know one another but maintain privacy. It's convenient to Austin's most popular destinations, while predictably quiet at night.
Wi-fi, private bath, iPhone/iPad docking stereo in room, shared living room, dining room and kitchen. Near bus stops to UT and downtown; local bike rentals are 1.5 miles away. Though Austin is better by car for most people.
Two very autonomous, mellow, indoor/outdoor cats live here. They are calm and nonchalant to visitors, and won't expect interaction. For some reason even people highly allergic never react to them.
Big trees, quiet at night, tightly-knit neighbors who care for one another while respecting privacy. The neighborhood sounds are one of my favorite things. Song birds, rustling older trees, kids walking to each other's houses yelling up and down. No incessantly barking dogs or inconsiderate neighbors. People wave and smile.
Readily accessible to any part of Austin. Two blocks from downtown bus, bike lines. Though people find Austin best with a car.
Wi-fi, dedicated bath very close in hall, clean linens and towels, iron, hair dryer, charging strip, shared living room, dining room and kitchen. Except for extended stays, closet space is limited.
Interaction with Guests

Usually you're welcomed in person and given information to make the most of your stay. The house is shared, though generous amounts of common space and your private bedroom/bath allow you to select if you interact.
Natural light, great trees. Five miles from downtown. Not in the thick of things or walking distance to festivals. But you are rewarded with quiet and easy access via car downtown, east side, airport, Mueller Trails, Austin's great food, University of Texas, Dell Children's.
Readily accessible to any part of Austin, though people find Austin best by car. If you travel well and investigate you will find the location a snap. If you want to walk everywhere I would try listings right downtown for a better experience.

Theresa was a great host and her space was just as described. Very bright and comfortable. The house is on a quiet street and central to all the major austin neighborhoods - you're less than 10 minutes from everything!
Theresa provided wifi access and her own guidebook, which was very useful. I stayed for a few days, so having a list of all the recommended attractions was great. I like to cook when I travel for more than a day or two and Theresa's kitchen was very accessible and well-stocked.
No complaints at all. Absolutely perfect first airbnb experience!
As always, Theresa is the best host possible. This was my second time to stay here as after finding such a great place, I had no need to search for another.
Had such a nice time staying at Theresa's. Very comfortable and calm space. And Theresa was so welcoming and helpful when describing local places to grab coffee, go for walks and also giving directions. Loved staying here and would definitely recommend to others!
Theresa's house is the perfect place to stay! It's stylish, comfortable, plenty of books to read, and so quiet I couldnt even tell if anybody else was in the house most of the time! Theresa was very friendly, and thought of every detail to make her home inviting. I would stay there again for sure
Although she wasn't there Theresa made me feel instantly welcome. She provided some snacks for me for breakfast and funny, yet on point instructions for where to park and getting in and out of the house. She was easily accessible via text and the location of the house is in a very quiet, safe neighborhood with easy access to groceries, restaurants, and highways.
She has a lot of decorations throughout the house, but it doesn't look cluttered just meant for plenty of entertainment while I was there. I would highly recommend staying here. It was an incredibly relaxing place to be after busy days.
I truly couldn't have had a more perfect stay here in Austin. Theresa's home was a beautifully creative place to hang my hat after a day of exploring the city. Clean, quiet, comfortable--and I had everything I needed. Should Austin invite me her way again, the first thing I'll do is see if this space is available. Thank you so much!

About the Host, Theresa
I make maps for a living and love people, food, art, swimming, my fantastic friends, our dinner parties, music, my work, travel and playing outside. I thrive on creating interior spaces that provoke interest but allow for recharging at day's end. As a veteran Austinite, I can direct you to authentic places and things to do.
One of my favorite experiences living here is people repeatedly coming in, taking in the surroundings, and saying "It feels like home here." I like that I can offer that along with a convenient location.
