The Space

I live in a lovely new 3br duplex on the East Side of Austin. I am within walking/biking distance of many east side bars, shops and eateries (happy to give reccomendations!) and a $5 cab ride from downtown (also easily bike-able). The metrorail and various bus lines are close by as well. Not only is this a great neighborhood to hang out in if you're visiting, but it also happens to be pretty close to the airport, about 15 minutes by car, or 30 minutes on the Airport Flyer, which stops just blocks away! You can help yourself to cofffee and snacks that I leave out in the morning, and beyond that you're welcome to use the kitchen as long as you clean up. You're welcome to do laundry also if you need to.

Your room: A comfy, full-size bed, a mirror, and a chest of drawers with room for your things. I'll have the bed made up for you, with extra blankets or pillows upon request. The room is upstairs at the opposite side of the house from mine and there is a private bathroom (towels included) in the hall.

We have a second room available that accomodates 2 more people. So, if you're traveling with more than 2 people, e-mail me and we'll have that second room ready for you.

My home is warm, clean, and perfectly located for anyone who wants to truly experience Austin. Hope to hear from you!

  • Linda is an awesome host. She is very kind and will make your stay the best, also she is a great cook. The location is great, very close to downtown. Her house also is very nice and extremely clean. The room is a good size with a very comfortable bed and reliable wi-fi. I will miss her, definitely recommend her.

  • We are three adults from Australia and stayed 5 nights at Linda's house during SXSW and had a great time. Austin is fantastic and Linda's house has everything you need, close to downtown and very comfortable and spacious. Linda made us feel relaxed and at home from the start with the kitchen open to us to make breakfast and get ready for the busy days ahead. Linda provided us with loads of information about Austin. Thankyou Linda and we hope to see you in Australia on one of your ventures: bring Lia with you. Smiles Sherryl, Pat and Carolyn.

  • Linda is the best host, very warm and hospitable and with interesting stories to tell. Her house also has a warm atmosphere with lots of nice touches like candles and art. It is immaculately clean. The room is a good size with a comfortable bed. Reliable wi-fi. Some very good cafés and food carts on nearby Rosewood Ave. Strongly recommended.

  • I stayed with Linda and Anya while I visited Austin for the US F1 Grand Prix, I absolutely loved my stay and Linda was a terrific host and even gave me a lift to the airport to catch my next flight. I would recommend Linda to anyone who is travelling to Austin, the house is lovely and located close the city, I found it was about a 20 minute walk to downtown (fast walker!) and suited me perfectly for my stay.

  • We had a great visit! The bed slept well. Linda was nice and helpful with suggestions about Austin. The house was very close to Downtown and quiet. Everything was very relaxed and just right for us. We've already discussed visiting again on a non-event weekend.

  • I had a wonderful time exploring Austin, and having this nice home to return to each night. Linda was a thoughtful and accommodating host who made my stay very enjoyable. The room was comfortable and had everything I needed. I enjoyed use of the kitchen, and the Internet connection worked well.

    While not my first choice for location, it turned out to be about perfect. The neighborhood is quiet, and it was easy to walk or take the bus anywhere I wanted to go, even late at night. Morning walks to downtown were nice, and people along the way were friendly. There are so many nice places to eat, from food carts to restaurants, some within walking distance. Several farmer's markets are close by, different days of the week, along with nice parks and trails to explore.

  • Linda was a very accommodating host. Her house is in a convenient location which is very walkable from downtown (minus huge suit cases!) The bus stop for downtown is also close by. The room and bathroom were tidy and well equipped with lots of nice touches like maps, water etc. Coffee in the morning was much appreciated. Would highly recommend Linda's place for anyone looking for great and affordable accommodation near downtown Austin.

Lia - I was born and raised in Austin, Texas where I currently live still. I heart the hell out of music and go to shows as often as I can, I also love to dance and eat delicious food I can't afford. I speak Spanish, wish I spoke French and/or Portuguese. I love to travel, hence the reason for joining airbnb, nice to meet you! If you're looking to stay at my place, I'm not currently living here anymore, I've been travelling around. But my mom still lives there and runs the house and would love for you to stay! Linda - Hi! I've lived in Austin for over 30 years via the east coast and Puerto Rico. I have a background in theater and media communications. My home is nice and clean in a very central area. I have an adorable 7lb. Chihuahua, his name is Charlie and he also loves company. I work often and you will have plenty of privacy while you're here, but I'm more than happy to help you get accustomed to Austin in any way I can. Welcome / Bienvenidos!
