Fun little wood-floored room close to downtown Austin! Close to Austin Convention center and lots of local eats, drinks and music! Don't miss out! Book today! This room books very quickly. Don't miss out!
This is a fun little room in a 3/1 wood and ceramic-tiled house that offers an amazingly comfortable stay and incredible location to explore Austin.
This 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!!
Each guest has their private room (or Air Stream) as well as full access to all 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.
Check-in and check-out was very easy and host was very friendly. Gave plenty of personal recommendations and was happy to answer plenty of questions about the area. Super hospitable. The room was as shown - quite small, but the bed was super comfortable, heater worked fine, etc. It was exactly as I expected and the kind hosts were a nice bonus.
Great location! Clean apartment! Would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Austin!
This is an overpriced AirBNB flophouse. $50 would be more like it.
1) Comfortable bed
2) Beer in fridge
3) Living room space
4) Close to Downtown
5) Good WIFI
2) Tiny room barely big enough for a queen bed
3) No central heating (or AC). On a cold weekend in Austin, I had to manage a portable heater that left the room too hot or too cold.
4) Sketchy electrical wiring. There were outlets dangling from the walls and uprotected wiring. The room had no lightswitch and minimal outlets. Seemed unsafe.
5) The house generally felt like a hastily flipped "airBNB shack". The doors did not close properly, everything felt slapped together.
6) No TV.
Except for proximity to Downtown and the mattress, Motel 6 would have been a better value.
Everything was great. The apartment has a number lock at the door and a number lock for each of the three rooms, so getting into the room is easy and safe. Good location, about 20mins walk to downtown, and a coffee shop (Cenote) and food truck are nearby within 5mins walking. The internet was working, there's a water filter in the kitchen. The room has an AC and working heater
Julia was a great host. Very easy to communicate and accommodating to my stay and my changes in plans, and the bed is ridiculously comfortable. For the price? Location location location. Great stay in Austin. House is as pictured, and a great nights rest.

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!
