The Space

This is a custom remodeled 27 foot Airstream set in a beautiful wooded back yard just 3 1/2 miles east of the captiol. The airstream sits on the highest crest in East Austin with a wide view of the valley below. This RV has been remodeled with handmade furniture to feature the beautiful curves of the walls giving it a cozy and spacious feeling. The Rv has AC and heat and features a full size desk, California King Tempeurpedic Bed, and a Full Service Kitchen with sink, coffee maker, burner, toaster oven and refridgerator, plus if you need something that isn't there just ask; I probably have it.

The airstream sits in my backyard which is very secluded and quiet. It features a composting toilet and there is full access to a shared bathroom just inside the house, as well as a beautiful backyard shower and clawfoot bathtub with hot water.

I am a massage therapist and facialist and have an in-home studio. I am happy to offer discounted rates for my guests so just ask. I also offer an herbal bath treatment in the open beauty of the outdoor tub.

There are several restaurants within walking distance. The bus line is close by and easy to use. Look up Metro's Go Line for information before going to catch the bus from Crest Ave-my street.

I have a couple of bicycles you are welcome to borrow with a deposit. There are bike lanes from my home to downtown which is a 15 minute ride. There is also plenty of space for parking right in front of the house if you have a car. This is the best side of town for avoiding traffic both coming and going, easy-in, easy-out.

The cottage is located in a neighborhood of artists, business owners and old neighborhood folks - its in the process of gentrifying which makes the neighborhood economically diverse.
Come experience the Austin East Side.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • A charming and comfortable retreat, perched above the city while not that far away. The Airstream itself is surprisingly spacious - we weren't stepping on each other's toes at all - and has all mod cons.

  • My partner and I stayed in the Airstream for just 2 nights, and we were sad it couldn't have been longer so we've made a pact to go back. The airstream & backyard is as adorable and quirky as the pictures lead it to be, but the view is far far better. The bed is huge and comfortable and the airstream is stocked with everything you might need. The bathroom situation can be a bit awkward at first but it's all worth it and sort of adds to the feeling of staying in an RV and "camping out". I took an outdoor shower on a beautiful morning and the breeze combined with the stunning view made for an incredible experience. I swear, it changed my life. I sadly didn't get to meet Deborah, but I spoke with her on the phone and she was so sweet and I'm so grateful to her for creating such a beautiful space and letting us stay there.

  • I want to start my review addressing what everyone is wondering about; the bathroom. And guess what, absolutely no problems at all. We shared with a lovely lady staying in the house, and she would simply put the "no vacancy" on the bathroom door when she occupied it, or "vacant" when it was free. Simple.
    For the fun of it I took a bath in the yard one afternoon, with a view the pictures don't do justice. There were curtains around the bath so I had privacy and it was really fun.
    The pictures of the RV and yard are very accurate, so if you think it looks like your cup of tea it probably is.
    The kitchen was stocked crazy well, with tea, coffee and sugar all for your pleasure. The bed was crazy comfy with a real feather comforter, so comfy!
    Deborah checked in on us through text to make sure all was well, and it certainly was. What a fun way to stay in Austin.

  • What a fun time in Austin! The Airstream was comfy, warm, and everything I needed for my 5 day stay. A beautiful spot, the backyard and the view just great! The weather was a bit unseasonably chilly, so was not able to take advantage of the outdoor bath. Also was not able to meet Deborah, as she was called out of town. But she spoke on phone and communicated via text. Additionally, there was a young couple staying at the cottage who were able to answer my questions and were very helpful.

    Everything was clean; great comfortable bed; and fresh half and half for my morning coffee!!!

    Staying here was a perfect way to experience Austin and its neighborhoods and community. My sons lived only a mile away. Thank you, Deborah! Hopefully next time we will meet!

  • Deborah's airstream was just perfect! The bed was so comfortable and cozy and Deborah was helpful and easy to get in touch with.
    It was a little hard to get around without a car during sxsw because it was impossible to get a cab and taking the bus also took forever. But we still had a wonderful stay.
    Thanks for everything Deborah it was a delight!

  • My girlfriend and I had a truly wonderful stay in the airstream. Deborah made sure that we had everything we needed and knew that we could contact her if we had any questions. It was a very peaceful, quiet, clean getaway. I can't recommend it enough.

  • Deborah was a very nice host and helpful in every way. The airstream experience was just not what we were expecting. I place more blame on us than anything else. Pictures are not very up to date, airstream was much more cluttered than presented. She had a nice little coffee set-up, but nothing was clean. The bed was reasonably comfortable. Sharing the bathroom was bit more annoying than we anticipated since there is not really a solid door separating the two groups. Overall the airstream was a let down for us personally.

  • Deborah is a prime example why I love AirBnB so much. First off, it was a little chilly while I was in Austin and what did Deborah do? Check on me constantly and give me extra heaters to keep the airstream nice and warm. Even throughout the day she checked to make sure it was up to par. She was very caring about my stay there and it meant A LOT. I got to hang out with her the first night there and she's very sweet and thoughtful!

    The airstream is adorable. The bed is comfortable, the kitchen appliances all work, and it's quiet just 5-10 minutes outside of the city. Yes, the bathroom is inside and shared but honestly it's not a big deal as long as you have an open mind. Which I assume anyone staying in an airstream does have an open mind.

    The location is very centralized with a car so getting anywhere is not an issue. There is an adorable cat that lives around the house outside and loves to be loved on and fed.

    I couldn't have asked for more from Deborah. She's a beautiful soul and really loves sharing her space to fellow travelers!!! She kept an open text thread with me open until the minute I touched down back home!

    Thanks, Deborah!!!

  • Deborah was an excellent host! Everything was clean and lovely, and exactly as described on her host page. The guest view of Austin is uniquely magnificent, and one of my Austin friends was familiar with the street because it is his favorite view of Austin's 4th of July fireworks display. Heartily recommended!

  • I really enjoyed the airstream--all the comforts of a nice room, with a touch of camping out. The location is great, minutes from downtown and convenience of eastside (i.e you don't need to get on I-35). The view of Austin at night is awesome. Deborah is a terrific host, friendly and conversational. Unfortunately I had to cut my visit short due to the ice storm, but I highly recommend the Airstrieam Getaway.

I find myself living outside of our industrial complex often enough where I have time, space and peace in my life. I seem to live an abundant life where I am so thankful for all my silly creative friends, amazing healthy food to eat, time to play and create, and a job that makes sense to me. I am amazed at everything that grows. I love to walk in the rain. I don't mind running into snakes. I have lived many lives. A mother and wife of 18 years, lived on a community I started in South austin raising farm animals and vegetables with some of my friends and now living on the east central side of town enjoying Austin Life while I work as a massage therapist and facialist out of a studio in my home. I also work in a Aveda Salon in North Austin. I am a creative/nuturer type. Prefer to play music or spend time with people, animals or plants.
