Interaction with Guests
I try to spend some time with every guest. Unfortunately, my job takes me out of town quite frequently. My friend Sara helps me take care of the house and is often at the house to welcome my guests. If you have any questions or concerns before, during or after your stay, please feel free to get in touch with either Sara or myself and we will do our absolute best to get your needs taken care of! We are both more than happy to help!
I live in a historically rich, multicultural, quite little neighborhood. Many of the homes were built at the turn-of-the-century in a semi Victorian style which gives the neighborhood a nostalgic charm. It can seem a little rough around the edges, but it has a very "Keep Austin Weird" vibe. It is close enough to downtown to be very convenient while still being far enough away that you don't hear all the noise when you are ready to call it a night!
Austin has quite a few options for getting around. Here are the major options:
Capital Metro - (website hidden)
BCycle - (website hidden)
Car2Go - (website hidden)
Uber - (website hidden)
Lyft - (website hidden)
And of course, you can always walk! Down town has some great things to see, and sometimes the best way to experience that is on foot!
I ask that guests remember that this is not a hotel, and things don't work the exact same in this situation as they do with a large corporation hotel. I ask that everyone use common courtesy and respect and to treat my home how you would expect yours to be treated.
Impersonal living space but did the trick. The house had great amenities.
The house really was in walking distance to everything Downtown. 10 Min to 6th or Rainey Street and also the Metro Station. So it is a great deal for the price compared to other rooms in Austin. Everything was well organized. I got the door codes for my room and the house in advance as well as a description in how to get there. They had coffee and milk and laundry included which was great as I continued travelling after Austin.
It seems that the owners run the house as a business. It feels like you come into a hostel without a reception. There are many rooms and other houses they rent out on airbnb and Julia does not really live there. This was totally not what I expected from the decription. I expected to get in touch with a nice girl called Julia who lives there, have a chat and find out what´s nice to see and do in Austin. Instead I found a sterile and not much welcoming atmosphere - I suppose it depends what you expect when you travel via airbnb. The room was mini and the mattress worn out.
Julia's room was perfect-- clean, in a cool, quiet location. We had a great time staying there!
Cool neighborhood, so close to everything downtown. Comfortable bed, easy check in. Just what we needed for a short weekend stay in Austin! Thanks, Julia!

About the Host, Julia
Hey ya'll! My name is Julia, I am a Brazilian and your host for Julia's Bed & Breakfast. I am passionate about opening the city up to people who are new to Austin and for those who are simply coming back for a visit. Music, art, theater, and film are all interests of mine so I keep up with all of the venues and upcoming events happening in town. I love to recommend places to eat (like "Juan in a Million" my personal favorite), things so see (like the bats underneath the South Congress bridge), cocktail bars (like the prohibition style bar "Eastside Showroom"), fun actives (Lake Austin has tons of water related ones to try) and events to attend. I make it a priority to make sure you have a safe, comfortable and enriching stay with us. Please feel free at anytime to contact me with any questions, requests or comments you may have, I would love to hear them, take care!
