*(SXSW MARCH 9TH-19TH THERE IS A 4 NIGHT MINIMUM STAY REQUIREMENT)*
Huge private room with private entrance and private bath. Vaulted ceilings and stained concrete floor.
Shared kitchen in our off grid community.
Handmade furniture throughout which are built on site in our solar workshop.
Relax and refresh in our abundant nature and gardens and pool (in season)
or energize taking in our Solar powered electric system or rainwater catchment, permaculture or other various healthy choices.
we are a house of 4
Benjamin, who considers himself a foodee, commonly making saurkraut kefir or a number of his other creations. Amanda, a local country western singer and booking agent.
Seaton, loving life and doing tai chi or building his WOW water business - locally made refreshing healthy beverages,
or Lori who loves Hawaii and recently spent the summer working with autistic children on a local horse farm.
From time to time other rooms are open if one of us is travelling, or our guest room as in the photos seen.
we also have a '48 greyhound bus outfitted to Elvis when he's in town and a vintage Spartan travel trailer underway for yogis,festival goers, and all sorts of mystic travellers.
AND you might consider us a seaonal place since we do not have any central heat or air conditioning. this is partially a health and lifestyle choice/ doing more with less and a function of our being off grid and generating our power exclusively from our on site solar.
that said, the pool is quite cooling and we are in a breezey area set in the woods. And in the winter we have a fireplace and 2 woodstoves often going.
Our water supply is similar and we ask you be sensitive to this resource, both in staying with us and whereever you can.

Loved.this.place. Coleman is a warm, good hearted guy and accommodating host. His home is a dream and I'm pleased I got to live it and meet the diverse people who shared in the experience. The house is tucked away and is in a prime location. Enjoyed strolling to the nearby cafe/restaurant and laying out back while enjoying great company. Thanks to Coleman I now know how to make a pond! :) Will miss.
Great room with tons of light. Big private bathroom with your own entrance. Coleman is super friendly and happily provided a bike and tips on getting around Austin. Only downside was that Austin was having unseasonably overcast weather and it kind of limited the use of electricity since the house is run on solar. But that's really a small thing since most of my time was spent running around the city and I really just needed a place to crash. Would totally stay there again!
We loved Coleman's place! All the others we met were laid back, fun people too. Loved that the house runs on solar power, the roosters have us our morning wake up call (it was needed), and it was so comfy, eclectic, and safe. The wood fired stove was amazing in our room and the bed was super comfy.
Coleman kept in contact with us via text/call, he showed up to help us with the stove and chatted with us about motorcycles and tiny homes. Loved our experience and we will use Coleman's place again when we visit Austin.
Stay was definitely worth the trip! Very easy access to public transportation and close to everything but still tranquil. Feels like an escape to the country. Think of it as upgraded 4-wall camping. Peaceful! Coleman was very hospitable and the room was very private, definitely a good eco-friendly getaway. Live simply and be happy. :)
He was awesome! He attended to us so wamrly. He was always taking care of us, from beds, to unitilities, to foods. He even had a party for us with sushi, miso soup and sake. As a Japanese, it was so nice and heartwarming to me. Also, even though his house is usually powered by solar energy, he enabled an emergency power source seening us having a difficulty. We definitely would like to stay with him if we had a chance to visit Austin again. Thank you Coleman!
Very laid back place to stay. Close enough to downtown. Cole is a great guy.
Coleman's place was such a treat!! Its definitely rustic and even though I was working an office job and relied on internet the week I was there I was able to make it work!! If the solar electricity went out it wasn't' until late at night but with enough time for me to get work done. The place is on a bit of property so it really gives you the feel like your in a little oasis!
Coleman's room was spacious and with a nice private bathroom. Coleman himself was very hospitable and open to endless quizzing about the arrangements of living off-grid and the history of the place. The other people staying at the house were as interesting and friendly. The only downside from my perspective were the stealthy Texan mosquitoes I was unaccustomed to - but Coleman was resourceful in battling against them, and with proper preparations I suspect you can be successful. In all, a great place to stay for those who don't mind compromising on some of the modern comforts.
Loved the privacy and space!
Coleman is a wonderful host, while the other tenants are equally friendly and helpful.
Rustic charms on large beautiful property.
Quiet environment close to Congress and town.
Enjoy at least one good sleep on your holiday!
Staying at Cole's was truly an awakening on how to truly live. One thing I picked up from living off the grid is you become very conscious of your actions especially the quantity of you resources.
Thanks Cole, your home was very welcoming and talking with Seaton was delightfully hilarious and yet, calming. Great auras guys!
Much love and positive vibes your way. :-)
