Interaction with Guests
I enjoy meeting people and sharing meals, entertainment. But I respect your privacy and the level of interaction that's comfortable for you. But I hope you're not a total recluse!
Austinites think this neighborhood is WAAAY out, but in truth, you can get almost anyplace from downtown through North Austin in 20 minutes. It'll take about 30 minutes for South Austin destinations.
The area does have a feel of being in the boonies because the route from 290 includes about 2 miles of rural land. It really adds a relaxing feel to your commute.
Having a car is mandatory because there is no bus route in the immediate area as yet. If you need to get transportation set up, I'd be willing to help out for a short term.
Other Things to Note
I have a small dog. No other pets allowed.
No smoking indoors. No drugs on property. All overnight guests must be pre-authorized.
I've been staying at Paulette's house for 1 month, and I certainly will continue staying here until May, 2015! She is a friendly, honest, and smiling person. Her house is very comfortable, and her neighborhood is quiet and safe. The house is always clean, and her kitchen is great and big. The room is very nice, and there is ample storage for my clothes. The house is 12 miles from downtown Austin, and the best way to get there is by car or motorcycle. I'm lucky to have found Paulette in Austin, and now I can call her my friend.
Paullette was a great host for my month in Austin. Her house was very clean and in a nice neighborhood. I could get anywhere I wanted to in Austin in 20 mins, depending on the traffic. She has a nice little dog who always wanted to play. Definitely a good stay
This woman and this space was truly a gift from GOD. I can't imagine a better situation while my son and I were here in Austin, TX. The house is beautiful and trendy. The back yard is a beautiful space to sit in the sun and read a book. It was an absolutely joy to be here. I am wishing a return trip to Austin just to stay with Paulette again. She is more than just a old roommate now, she became my friend. I would recommend staying with her to anyone and everyone. You won't be disappointed!
About the Host, Paulette
I'm a middle-aged female with an active but quiet life-style. I like making new friends and sharing my home. I'm a vegetarian and enjoy gardening and singing in the church choir.
My adorable dog likes to play with my roommates. Otherwise he sits like a king on his throne in the living room and jumps to the top of the (forbidden) couch about 10 seconds after I'm gone.
I'm working from home, so I my ideal guest has his or her own day job. I don't need distractions from 9-5.
