Interaction with Guests
We can have as much or as little interaction as desired. I am a Texas native and have been in Austin for years (UT Grad - Go Horns!). I know all the great spots for outdoor activities, dining and night life from frou frou locales in the north, to east-side weird to the downtown party scene.
I don't live in a gated community and my front yard is not pristine. This is corky Austin ya'll! I live in a nice, diverse, East Austin neighborhood where you will see people outside walking dogs and sitting around a BBQ pit. Or, you might get a waive from a stranger driving by for no good reason other than to say "hi". The houses are 70's style, spacious, and well-kept almost like the burbs. However, we "keep it real" and have our own community nature habitat in one of my neighbor's front yard. There is also a small greenbelt that runs through our hood. It is a piece of vintage Austin ostentatious waiting for you.
My house is in walking distance to several bus stops including a late night option that runs till 3AM. I am 3 minutes by car to the Austin Metro train and Greyhound bus stations. I also have a car that I lease on relay rides and can arrange a pickup from the Austin Bergstrom Airport, which is approximately 25 mins from my house. For one person, the super shuttle is inexpensive, can be booked easily online or from you smartphone and typically my house is one of the first drop offs. Austin does not have public transportation like a large city, but there are options to get around if you have a little extra time. A car is always the most convenient option.
NOTE- Instant book is for 1 Person only. I host other guests, the bathroom and common areas are shared and I have small dogs (who live in another part of house).
No outside guest without prior permission. There is an overnight guest fee (see additional person). No smoking in the house. I ask that you clean up after yourself in all common areas.
