Private, separately keyed entrance, to bedroom addition with its own master bath. It also has its own thermostat control. There is nothing above the addition and my bedroom is upstairs in the far corner of the house. Also the house is primarily constructed out of concrete blocks, so sounds don't travel through the house. You will feel like you have your very own bungalow.
In the Swedish Hill neighborhood, only a mile from downtown and the University of Texas campus which you can walk to or take a cab (~$7). There is even a bus stop two blocks away. Aside from all of the downtown nightlife, there are several restaurants (including trailers which are the current hot thing in Austin) within a few blocks. A list of nearby restaurants are included in the room.
Free wireless internet is available. There is plenty of street parking. Access to a laundry room and refrigerator can be arranged in advance. Access to the kitchen can be discussed for longer term stays. There is an electric kettle in the room.
Come enjoy yourself near enough to the action but just beyond the craziness so that you can relax.
No smoking in the house.
No pets. I may make an exception to this rule in special cases.
Please respect the agreed upon boundaries.
Please turn off thermostat at checkout.
At checkout, leave keys on dresser and turn thumb-screw lock on outside door when you leave.
Don't forget any of your belongings.
If there are any problems/issues, please call me immediately.
The place was perfect! Very quiet, only a few minutes from downtown, comfortable bed, and very clean. Throughout the process Chris responded to everything immediately. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone else traveling to Austin!
I forgot to contact Chris until the very afternoon we arrived to arrange the check in details but luckily he responded to my text immediately! Everything looks exactly like it does in the pictures, there is a separate entrance to the bedroom and a private bathroom which is very convenient. Thank Chris, would stay here again if I come back to Austin.
Description very accurate had our own entrance to come and go as we pleased.
The reservation was canceled 16 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Chris' room was hospitable and in good order if a bit small. His directions on getting into the room were concise and correct, and we had no issues. The bed was a bit more stiff than I would prefer but it did not present a problem. It is in a good location and while not within walking distance of too much, it is a very short car ride to just about everything. We enjoyed the private entrance and the climate control for the room. Everything was clean and fashionable. I would recommend this room for those looking for an inexpensive place to crash, but still want the seclusion of a hotel style room.
The room was just as described, very clean and private. It essentially felt like we had our own hotel room! We loved the neighborhood. It was quiet and I felt safe parking my car the street. It was close enough to walk down to 6th street to check the bar scene. Also close to some really great restaurants. Chris was a great host, he had very clear detailed instructions for our arrival and was flexible with our check out time. I would recommend this place to friends and plan to stay again when I come back to Austin!
Everything was perfect. Clean and neat and quiet. Very convenient to everything we wanted to see and parking was always easy.
Hi, this is Chris. I love my house and hope you will too. I picked this house because of how unique it is and the convenient location. I look forward to meeting you.
