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 pets. I may make an exception to this rule in special cases.

Everything was perfect. Clean and neat and quiet. Very convenient to everything we wanted to see and parking was always easy.
Chris's place was super comfy, clean, and convenient. We had plenty of privacy and the neighborhood was safe and fun. Close to downtown, but also walking distance from neighborhood eats. Also, that bed is probably the most comfortable I've slept on in my life! Strong wifi and cute dogs too. All in all an excellent experience. Chris is a great and friendly host.
Everything was great in Chris's separate private room. It was just like being in a hotel with a private bathroom and AC/heat control. The location was excellent, and if it wasn't freezing and moist out, we could have walked everywhere (east 6th bars, downtown, etc.) with no problem. We briefly met Chris and he was very nice and lent us his wine bottle opener. I would definitely consider staying here again next time I come to Austin!
A very nice place. I didn't get to meet with the host, but everything is arranged perfectly. The bathroom is clean. The location is quiet. A very good place for vacation and rest. The bed and everything is comfortable. It takes about 20 minutes by walking from Austin downtown. Can be reached by bus #6. Overall, highly recommend.
Chris was a great host and his room was just as described and not too far from downtown. I came to Austin from abroad and he even let me ship things I bought online to his address. I would totally stay at his place again.
This was a great place to stay. Chris was a great communicator and we had no troubles at all. The room was clean and there was tons of privacy. The location is perfect, walking distance from downtown and a good central location to drive from.
Would highly reccomend this place to anyone looking for nice quiet place to stay amongst the hustle and bustle of Austin.
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.
