About this listing
Great location, right near Boggy Creek Park/E 7th Street! Your bedroom is in its own wing with its own bathroom and features a comfy queen futon with springs that make it feel like a firm mattress rather than a futon. For an extra fee ($25 per person), we can accommodate up to 4 people by putting a queen air mattress on the ground in this room, or in our office (if available). There's also a big fenced-in yard with fire pit, kitchen fully-stocked with appliances/utensils, dining area, private bathroom, laundry room with washer/dryer, wi-fi, Wii, Netflix, easy parking... and, most importantly, it's close enough to walk to events that are downtown!
We are conveniently located near East 6th Street (home to the Grackle, Liberty, Shangri-La and more) and epicenter of many more bars and outdoor stages during the SXSW), East 5th Street (Yellow Jacket Social Club, White Horse, the ND), East 8th Street (French Legation), East 11th Street (Longbranch, Trailor Space, Victory Grill, Kenny Dorham's Backyard), and East 12th Street (Club 1808, White Swan). We are also just several blocks from an HEB grocery store for all your grocery/beer shopping needs, and close to multiple food trailer parks and restaurants (Blue Dahlia, Franklin Barbecue, Casa Colombia, Takoba, Rio's Brazilian Cafe, Justine's, Hillside Farmacy, Eastside Showroom, Buenos Aires Cafe, Quickie Pickie, Eden East, La V, The Hightower and more!)
At the end of our block you'll find peaceful Rosewood/Boggy Creek Park-- a great place for walking pets, picnicking, or taking a dip in the nearby (free) public pool.
You'll enjoy your own room and bathroom, laundry, wifi, parking, and proximity to central and east Austin!
Interaction with Guests
My husband and I usually keep pretty busy, but we will help guests with as much info as they need (suggestions for restaurants, instructions for taking a bus, directions around town, etc.)
Also, our dog Chef is super friendly and adorable (yes, I'm biased but check out his photo and tell me you don't agree!) Our two cats are also adorable but will definitely hide from you for most of your stay anyway. :)
I love that our neighborhood is so central to everything, yet it's on a loop of a street nestled against a park, so it feels hidden away too. Our neighbors are all very friendly too!
Several bus stops are very close and cabs can be taken downtown for about $7.00. There is also a nearby light rail. For more detailed info on the public transporation, visit (website hidden)
Other Things to Note

Smoking is allowed outside only please! :)
This is your room.. this full/queen futon actually has springs in the mattress and is quite comfy, much like a firm mattress! For an extra two people, we can put an air mattress in the same room or in our office if it's available!
