Escape to Austin and stay in a newly remodeled bungalow in the heart of all the hip East ATX action. One mile from downtown, even closer to the legendary East-side food trucks and eateries like Franklin BBQ, Qui, LaV, Contigo & East Side King.
NOTE: I keep my calendar up to date so don't hesitate to instant book. If the dates are not available, message me because I have several other listings.
Stay for a long weekend while you visit Austin, or make this your landing spot while you get permanently settled.
This newly remodeled 50's bunglow is the perfect escape to the quintessential Austin experience but with all the modern ammenties. The 2 bedroom bungalow will accommodate up to four people. If you want to add more people to the party, there is a fold down couch, air mattress, regular couch, and I rent the vintage camper out out back for an extra fee.
Vintage Shasta Airflyte: The vintage Shasta Airflyte in the backyard can be used if there are more than four people in your party. Message me for more info.

I have lived in East Austin for 12 years and love the thriving artist, urban gardening, DIY community. The neighborhood is within close proximity to downtown, South Austin, UT and all the other hip central places to visit.
East Austin is where you will find amazing food, all kinds of art, music, DIY house shows, loose chickens and wylie and friendly neighbors to talk to. Airbnb has a great East Austin neighborhood guide. Check it out: https://www.airbnb.com/locations/austin/east-downtown

Angel was awesome to communicate with. Her place was absolutely charming and the team loved it! Would definitely recommend a stay at her place:)
Angel's house was exactly as described--clean, adorable, and plenty of room for my group of 8 girls. The neighborhood is great, and her list of restaurant and bar recommendations was very helpful. She was very responsive and attentive. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a fun and hip place to stay with friends or family.
A house done up in true Austin style! The house was very clean and comfortable.
We had a great time, would love to stay here again. The house was perfect, clean & provided everything we needed. Backyard was a great space too! Angel responded very quickly and helped me with any questions I had about the place. Convenient spot close to downtown & a cheap cab ride away from lots of great nightlife!
House was great! Angel was extremely quick to communicate and everything was exactly as described. thank you again!
This was one of the best airbnb experiences I have had yet! The place was homey, awesomely decorated and in a great location! Thanks Angel!
Angel is a very quick communicator, which was a big help when our arrival time changed twice because we couldn't escape the icy tundra of Boston. Also, her property was adorable, clean and exactly as pictured - immaculate design and decor! We liked being a little off the beaten path as well. 12th street had more car noise than we expected, but as 14-year city dwellers it wasn't a big deal, just something to be aware of if you are sensitive to noise.

I love sharing my home with friends and strangers alike. I've lived in Austin for 13 years and am happy to point you to spots off the beaten path (Cathedral of Junk) to the sparkling jewels in the middle of the city (Barton Springs). I'm a User-Experience Designer for a Clean Tech/Energy Management start-up. I love the challenge and rewards of conserving in all aspects of life. I enjoy bike riding, brewing and drinking craft beer, gardening, petting my chickens, sewing and DIY projects, seeing live music, traveling, and eating great food. I've only been to 13 countries and 25 states. I most recently spent a few months in Hawaii living off grid on a living farm that is doing reforestation on the Big Island.
