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.
Communicating with Julia was a breeze, I had a great time staying at her place and the room was comfortable and clean. The area was awesome with it being close to the airport, downtown Austin, and 6th street.
Just a simple, no-frills room with shared bathroom very close to downtown austin.
The room was clean and attractive as were the common spaces. I had a room on a back courtyard which was somewhat less convenient to the bathroom. The host provided the access codes to the front door and to the room by email, so we never actually met.
I was attending a conference in downtown Austin which was within walking distance. Also close by are the restaurants and bars on E 6th Street and, in the other direction, the nightlife on Rainey St was about a ten minute walk.
Staying at Julia's over Easter weekend was great! Amazing location, a quick walk to 6th St. And pretty much any downtown area you want to go. Only about a 10 minute uber ride from the airport. Meeting the other people renting rooms was a neat experience. Cost is great for the location! Never met Julia but she was very responsive and helpful before, during, and after the renting process. 5/5 stars
Julia was very accommodating and easy to communicate with, even though we didn't meet in person. The room I stayed in was located outside of the main house which meant it was really cold at night and you had to walk through the backyard to use the bathroom in the main house. If you don't mind a cold room/outdoor trek to the bathroom, then otherwise this place is in a great location. I could easily walk to where I needed to go.

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!
