Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Nice place in a transitioning neighborhood - an easy walk to downtown Austin, where I rented a bike.

    July 2014
  • Everything was great. Incredible response time.

    June 2014
  • Proximity to everything cool is what is key here, however we found the pictures somewhat misleading (e.g. there is no bedside table in the bedroom like the picture has), and the place is quite threadbare, but other than that it functions very well as a base (with a great aircon system!) Would recommend as it is in walking distance to lots of great things.

  • Place was as shown in the pictures. Walked home from 6th street a couple different nights around 1-2am - didn't have any problems walking alone (am 30 yr. male). Would definitely consider staying here again.

  • What a whirlwind my trip to Austin was! I was in town for conference and realized a few hours before I got on my flight from San Francisco that the first night's accommodation was not included. Julia was gracious enough to accept my request at the very last minute. The house is clean and tidy and in a great location (walk down to the food truck court on Cesar Chavez for great Korean food). Julia was also super flexible with the check out time when I realized I faced major ankle injuries if I planned to stand in the heels I packed all day and needed to make a quick shopping trip. Highly recommend!

  • Chris was a great host. Comfortable bed, and close to everything including 6th street and public transportation. Would recommend!

  • It was great! Julia is very accessible and very helpful. The location is perfect for anybody attending a conference at the Austin convention center. There is a great coffee shop half a block away that is perfect for having a morning breakfast before a very busy day.

  • Juliet was very friendly and helpful. She offered many suggestions on what we could do in the area, and made sure we had what we needed. About the house. The location is perfect for visiting the city as it's walking distance from most of the things you'll want to do downtown. The location is the house's best feature. The room itself is comically small, but the bed was comfortable and met our needs just fine. That little nightstand you see in the picture wasn't there when we were there. There's a little clothes rack you can hang clothes on, but almost no space to stand when two people are in the room. I left my stuff in the corner on the floor and put the suitcase in the laundry room as it wouldn't fit in the room. While we liked the place overall, this a place to use as a home base, not a place you want to stay in long. The bathroom was clean and perfectly fine. There were sheets and towels that were clean and ready to use when we got there. Though we were nervous sharing the house with a stranger, we only saw Jordan (the man who lives there) about 5 minutes total in the 3 nights we were there, and he was perfectly friendly. The walls of the room could definitely use some paint (that picture must have been taken a long time ago) but we did see Jordan talking to a contractor so maybe that's in the works. Also, a shirt of mine got pushed under the bed and came out covered in dust, so that should be cleaned. Short version: Great location; don't plan on spending much time in the house though.

  • Our stay was nice, quiet and private. Didn't get a chance to meet our host, but she responded promptly to any questions we had. Thanks again!

  • Nice and mellow people - great location

Julia's B&B
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!
