About This Listing
Awesome wood-floor room close to downtown Austin! New mattress. Clean bathroom. 10 min walk to Convention Center, Rainy Street, Franklins BBQ, 6th Street, & Hip East Austin. You feel totally at home. This room books very quickly. Don't miss out!
Welcome to the real Austin! This is a fun, nice-sized room in a 3/1 wood and ceramic-tiled houme that offers an amazingly comfortable stay and incredible location to explore Austin.
The room has a new queen sized bed, 400-count sheets, fresh colorful towels and a super soft duvet and brand new private air conditioning unit!!
You will have your private room as well as full access to the common areas of the house.
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! I'm happy to provide recommendations for cool things to do in and around Austin.
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.
Julia's house on the east side is great. Clean, but with a ton of character and an ideal location. Quiet and peaceful for your R&R, yet walking distance to many attractions that Austin is abound with. Would definitely stay again.
We were just passig through Austin and it was perfect for what we needed! Comfy nice and clean. Small room and shared bathroom, but that was fine with us! We dealt with Sarah, so Julia is actually not the person to contact, which was a bit confusing at first, but Sarah worked everything out for us! We had a lovely stay.
Great location. Short walk to downtown, local bars and restaurants. Comfy bed, clean and secure.
Julia was great to deal with (didn't meet in person) and responded quickly when I messaged her about a small problem.
The house is not owner-occupied and feels more like a hostel (we were told by people in the neighbourhood it is owned by a large property company).
The house is located in East Austin. Super close to everything and the über ride to sixth street was only five bucks. ;) The bed was super comfortable and there is everything you would have in your home (fridge,stove,etc). There are three rooms and each different room has a code. The door locks behind you which is a nice security feature. Everything was clean, I felt safe, so no complaints. :) I wish they had more than one toilet cause when you gotta go you gotta go, but it's not a huge deal. Overall good price, great place to stay, and great hosts (very available and provide info about the city). I definitely recommend it.
Julia was fantastically responsive, and even worked to accomodate me as my plans changed last minute. The room was clean and comfortable (even though it was cold outside!) and the house was in an absolutely perfect location for walking exploration of the hip eastern side of town. Such an easy and fun experience thanks to Julia.
The living conditions are pretty basic. It was clean and cozy but very small. I stayed in one of the rooms overnight and felt a bit claustrophobic. There was not enough space even for stacking my belongings.
Noise from neighboring rooms and a shared bathroom makes it feel like a hostel. However, the price was similar to a decent hotel room. Overall, I don't think it was a good value for money
This is the second time that I decided to stay at this listing, and I couldn't be happier! The room was clean, tidy, and I had everything I needed while I was there. Highly recommended!

About the Host, Julia
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!
