About this listing

This awesome little 3 bedroom 2 bath house makes all who stay here very happy. It's got tons of character and is super close to everything. Situated in the oldest neighborhood in Austin and only 5 blocks from restaurants and a grocery store. You can walk to the other side of downtown in 20 minutes.
Plenty of outdoor common areas and even has a vintage airstream that is available for rent with room for a few more guests.

The space

My house is just on the outskirts of downtown in the nicest neighborhood in the city. The house is incredibly convenient to anywhere you want to go in the city. Tons of parking, cable, wifi, hammock, gas and charcoal grills, central AC, record player with record collection, surround sound, flat screed tv's, washer and dryer, complete fully stocked kitchen, fire pit, and much more. I'm a local restauranteur with 36 years of local experience and contacts. Happy to help with any and all needs.

Guest access

You will have access to the entire house and grounds.

Interaction with guests

As much or as little as you would like. I do like to meet guests at the house when they arrive to provide a tour and some special in sites on house operations and anything else they might need.

The neighborhood

Clarksville is the oldest neighborhood in the city. It has some of the nicest people anywhere on the planet. A grocery store, pharmacy, corner store, coffee shop and numerous restaurants are just a 5 minute walk from the house. The neighborhood also has many parks , historical houses, and one of the oldest fire stations in Austin.

Bus stop three blocks away. 20 minute walk to downtown, 5 minute walk to grocery store and restaurants. 4 minute $7 cab ride downtown. 20 minute drive to the airport.

This is my home. Please treat it as you would your own. That is to say if you take care of your home in a clean, well kept manner. I have many nice things that my guests seem to enjoy so please take care of them so other guests can enjoy them as well. No pets do to the fact that pet hair can ruin the stay for future guests. I do love dogs, cats, and all animals though.

Michael User Profile

I'm an outgoing 32 year old gentlemen. I love traveling, food, alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages, music, animals, sports, and gambling. I own five small businesses and employ over 150 pp.
I'm more familiar with my city ( Austin Texas ) than most and consider myself a fine host. Treat others as you want to be treated. I'm very active and spend alot of time outdoors taking part in many sports and leisure activities. Besides Austin my favorite places are, (in no particular order ) Lake Tahoe, Santa Cruz California, Costa Rica, New York City, and Las Vegas.
I like to read, cook, garden, and farm. We have a sustainable garden and urban farm on property that partially sustains one of my restaurants. Don't worry, no crowing roosters in the morning, just hens and ducks. Besides being a fine host I'm also a great guest. I'm a pleasure to be around, funny, keep a tidy environment for the most part, cook, and am one of the least selfish people I know.
My life motto is "The most important thing you will ever do in life is what you are doing right now."
