About This Listing
Looking for a high quality place to stay, but not those high quality prices? You found it! My home offers a comfortable bedroom with large bathroom, and a very peaceful backyard to relax after a long day of sightseeing. Come and experience Austin!
My 3rd bedroom is furnished with a Queen-sized bed (clean linens provided) and a full sized leather couch, which provides the opportunity for 3 guests in this room. This is a fabulous option for visiting Austin. The room has a nice sized closet for clothing. The AC is on most of the time during the hot months, but if you like the white noise of a fan, there is a ceiling fan and a portable fan available. The bath would be semi-private to shared depending on the time of your visit. Large fenced-in backyard with beautiful deck, fish pond, and a lot of greenspace (yard backs up to Onion Creek). Outdoor grill available.
I offer wireless internet and my home is less than 2 miles from I-35 and equal distance from downtown and the FORMULA ONE Racetrack (about 7.5 miles).
I have 2 dogs (Scout and Roxanne) and one orange tabby cat (Tiggs).
If you are looking for more amenities, I also have a fully furnished bedroom available through airbnb for a bit more per night.

Interaction with Guests
I love to interact with guests, but equally respect their need for downtime and privacy.
Quiet diverse neighborhood that is filled with friendly people.
Public Transportation in South Austin is not the best. Having a car is easiest unless you are an avid bicyclist. There is an easy way to get downtown from my house, but it is a good ride. Bike rentals are available.

This was without question the best Airbnb experience I've had. Tammy's house is spacious and well maintained, and the garden is gorgeous. As a host, Tammy was kind, patient and generous with her time. She made delicious muffins and coffee each morning, and we lingered and chatted with her over breakfast each day and were happy to drag out the conversation because she had so many things to say about the city and neighbourhood.
If I go back to Austin, I'd definitely stay at Tammy's house again.
We had a wonderful time staying at Tammy's house. Before and during the trip she was a wonderful resource for the things to do in Austin. We were very comfortable in her home--the bed was seriously comfy. We had a whirlwind trip but with her beautiful backyard and sweet dogs this would be a great place for a relaxing retreat!
All I was looking for was a clean room to stay in near Austin. What I ended up with was so much more. Tammy is really great. The evening I arrived, she happened to be hosting a concert in her amazing backyard with local music star Ginger Leigh. How awesome is that? The next morning, she invited me to join her friends for delicious brunch.
Don't hesitate to stay at Tammy's!
We enjoyed our stay at Tammy's lovely home. She was more than accommodating, friendly and helpful. We had a clean, comfortable bedroom and a spacious shared bathroom with fresh towels and great water pressure. I wish we had more time to enjoy her peaceful backyard and deck. It was very inviting with ample seating. We will definitely stay again!
Tammy's place really felt like a home away from home. Comfortable, welcoming,clean and spacious. Tammy is a gracious caring host who seems to truly enjoy sharing what she loves about Austin with visitors. I will certainly plan a return trip to further explore the area knowing I have a safe, convenient and comfortable home base to return to,thanks Tammy!

About the Host, Tammy
I love the outdoors, gardening, landscaping, working on my fishpond, and hosting backyard house concerts with musicians from all over the country. All these things make me incredibly relaxed and at peace. My home and yard is truly an Oasis from the craziness life can throw at me. It helps make sense of the world for me.
When I'm not able to spend time doing those things, I am the president and founder of a local 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization called ATX Kids Club that offers educational clubs, summer camps, and After-school Adventures to elementary aged students. I am also a Legalshield Member and Associate, which allows me the opportunity to offer memberships to others that are interested in affordable legal services. I have previously been an Assistant Principal and Elementary School Teacher for K-5th Grade. In my free time, I love to be outdoors. I have 2 dogs (Scout and Roxanne) and an Orange Tabby cat (Tiggs). I enjoy spending time out and about with friends as well as peaceful times alone. Austin has become my home after spending most of my years in the North-eastern part of the US (PA/MD). I have been here for about 6 years and can't imagine living anywhere else. People ask why Austin, and other than the warm temperatures that I prefer, it's the people here. Austin is a small city filled with people from other places. It creates a city that is filled with people that live here intentionally and love being here. So, I believe the outcome of this, is a city filled with happy people. There is so much to do here always but it's not too big that you feel overwhelmed by it being a city. You can participate or not, but having the option so close is very nice. Austin is becoming a huge hotspot for tourism and people relocating. Our economy is doing well and our Real Estate is reasonably affordable. I hope you consider taking a trip to this wonderful city!
