Private room with private separately keyed entrance a mile from downtown.
Private, separately keyed entrance, to bedroom addition with its own master bath. Typically the keys are in a combination lockbox when you arrive, so that you do not have to coordinate getting your key and can arrive whenever you like. Combination provided a few days before your arrival. The room 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.
Free wireless internet is available. Access code is on information sheet in the room. 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.
Guests typically only have access to the bedroom and attached bath. Upon approved request, access can be given to an area with refrigerator and washer/dryer. Upon approved request for longer stays, access can be granted to the remainder of the house including the kitchen.
Interaction with Guests
Interaction with guests is all at the guests discretion. Sometimes I have never met my guests. Other times I have driven a guest 20 miles to a brewery and spent the afternoon with them. I am outgoing and friendly, but definitely respect your privacy.
In the Swedish Hill neighborhood, only a mile from downtown and the University of Texas campus which you can walk to or take a Lyft, Uber, or 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.
There is a bus stop two blocks from the house. Lyft, Uber, and Taxis are available. I recommend Lyft. Best to use link from (website hidden), but can also go to (website hidden)

nice clean room. lots of privacy with side entrance to room. Chris was kind and accommodating. the location is nicely just outside of downtown, and 4 blocks from cool little restaurants and yoga studio, food trailers, local market etc.
What a great place to stay! Chris was extremely friendly and very accommodating. He truly respects your privacy and finds little need to check on you as a guest. He was always ready to answer any questions immediately with friendliness and hospitality! Other than the door being stuck all the time, the showers bed a/c was clean and comfortable! I will love to come back again!
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.
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.
