About the host:
I love to travel and to experience difference cultures especially by visiting places I have never been to before. I try not to do the same place twice.I especially enjoy going to a country where I feel that I'm IN ANOTHER COUNTRY.

When I travel, I prefer to either go with/visit someone from that country (who speaks the language) and stay with them... and get to experience life as a local, and not as a tourist.

I'm both a Webmaster and an American Sign Language (ASL) Interpreter for the Deaf. I've lived in Austin for the past 19 years.

Motto: "You only live once... but if you work it right, once is enough." So, live life to it's fullest and experience as much as you can.

  • Awesome Place.... Pictures don't do it justice.
    Joseph was very easy to work with and he had the house ready to go. VERY CLEAN and very spacious. The house is in a great location. 2 minute walk to the bus stop and a 15 minute drive to all the popular Austin Hotspots.

    I would stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Austin.

  • Our family had a wonderful time in Austin for Thanksgiving with extended family and this home was a perfect fit for us. Nice location, quiet neighborhood, very comfortable beds and living areas were exactly as shown in the pictures. Very easy to get some work done (with the wifi) and to have fun around town. It was just a short drive to all the places we wanted to see. All was great and Joseph was a wonderful host. Highly recommended!!

  • Stayed here for 4 nights to see Formula 1. The house is only a block or so from the bus stop where you can catch a bus to downtown. From downtown, I was able to ride a free shuttle to the race track. Excellent location to enjoy everything Austin has to offer. The house was better than expected. Joe, the host, was very accommodating and went above and beyond to see our every needs were met. He even made sure the cupboard was stocked with out favorite creamer and bought a new tv for one of the bedrooms. Talk about service! First class all the way! I highly recommend staying here, the house and host are both fabulous!

  • Joeseph has a wonderful place in an great location and is a very friendly and gracious host. The pictures and information about the of the house were very accurate and everything was very clean. The house was wonderfully furnished and is close to downtown. I loved the way he styled the place. We are looking forward to hopefully staying with him again, the next time we visit austin.

  • I had three employees to house, last minute, for a Gaming convention in Austin. All the reasonably priced hotels were booked - so I turned to AirBnB and foound I have been told the house was great, clean, etc. Getting the keys and into the house was easy and organized. I believe the location also worked well for attendance at the convention downtown. All in all great experience.

  • Four of us went to Austin to do the Tough Mudder and stayed at Joseph's house. He was an exceptional host, and the house is in a great location. Plenty of space and well worth the price.

    October 2012
  • We rented this property for three management trainees during their stay in Austin. The property was exactly as advertised and Joseph was a warm, hospitable host. The property is centrally located and convenient to everything that Austin has to offer. Clean and comfortable space, great yard, quiet neighborhood, and excellent communication from our host. Couldn't ask for more!

  • Bang for the buck. Clean, plenty of room, enough tile in the home to cover a football field (LOL). Plenty of parking at this home in a quiet neighborhood with immediate access to First Street with easy connections to wherever you want to go. That is important, as you want to stay off I-35 as much as possible.
    The entertainment next door was not mentioned in the ad. A beautiful bright red macaw, or parrot occupies it's 10 feet high home structure in the back yard of the home to the west of this place. Acrobatics, squawks for attention, and spoken phrases such as " here bird, here bird" was uttered upon the arrival of a native wild bird. Very delightful! Our back yard here, was a nice size and privacy fenced 6 feet high.
    We were stunned at the attention and helpfulness displayed by Joseph. Best host we have seen and we are in our 60's. The location, cleanlieness, and quality of this home is worth $30- $75 more a day than is being charged.

  • Joseph was an amazing host. The house met all of our needs and was in a great location. We will definitely rent this property again. Thank you Joseph for your hospitality!

    July 2012
  • My family of four with two young boys stayed at Joseph's house for two months while looking for a house to buy in Austin. Having such a comfortable, fully furnished house with excellent hospitality from Joseph made our move to Austin so much easier. Our needs as a relocating family probably differ from vacationers, but Joseph was so accommodating, I'm sure that whatever you need to make your stay more comfortable will be provided. The location of the house is excellent. Very convenient to all the major highways and a straight shot down 1st St to downtown. The house has a large backyard too, which can't be said for many Austin homes. There are plenty of ways to entertain yourself inside too, with a PS3, TV, movies, etc. Great house, great location, great hospitality!

About
I love to travel and to experience difference cultures especially by visiting places I have never been to before. I try not to do the same place twice... though I must admit I've been back to Costa Rica several times. I love the weather, landscape and the people there. Life is much simpler in CR and the people enjoy it. I especially enjoy going to a country where I feel that I'm IN ANOTHER COUNTRY... I want to be a bit confused about where I am, and what I'm trying to read. I don't enjoy simply going to another Westernized locale in another country, where they've tried to make it like the United States (think- most tourist traps in Mexico). One of my favorite experiences was in Egypt: there even the street signs didn't look even remotely familiar. Since they don't use the Latin alphabet, I wasn't able to even begin to guess what anything read. I was constantly hearing Arabic spoken on the streets and shouted from the mosques (it was holy month). Even the attire is drastically different from the US. When I travel, I prefer to either go with/visit someone from that country (who speaks the language) and stay with them... and get to experience life as a local, and not as a tourist. This is my favorite thing. Then I can eat the foods, meet the people, and see how they really live. I'm both a Webmaster and an American Sign Language (ASL) Interpreter for the Deaf. I've lived in Austin for the past 19 years. Motto: "You only live once... but if you work it right, once is enough." So, live life to it's fullest and experience as much as you can.
