You'll have a fridge ready stock full of food, drinks, and whatever other treats my wife is making. She's an incredible cook, so you'll be in for some treats.
Usually our guests are only here for the weekend, but we also do weekly and monthly rentals depending on the schedule.
We're pretty easy going folks, and we'll take care of you if you need anything.
Internet, premium cable, fresh ground coffee, and breakfast items such as bagels, yogurt, or any special requests!
Interaction with Guests
We hope to meet all our guests, but things get busy, and Austin has so much to do! We usually do an easy self check in-and meet whenever if possible. Our main house is across the yard if any problems arise, but like to maintain our guests total privacy!
East Austin is always rated one of the hippest, trendiest areas in the country. Being so close to downtown, we have access to tons of new bars, bistros and coffee shops, as well as being only a few blocks from Lady Bird Lake, which flows through the heart of downtown, where you can rent kayaks, stand up paddle boards, or take a beautiful walk/run around. The trail will also take you right to Zilker park, for both ACL , and Barton Springs!
There are a few bus stops within blocks, but we walk most everywhere. A cab ride down to bars/downtown is around a mile.
We have a very friendly dog that is in the yard, but if you want to avoid our happy dog there is street access to the house. You will have your own set of keys to get in and out whenever you like. Plenty of parking on the street if needed.
I don't know why I would stay anywhere else in Austin. The house is well equipped and well located, just a few blocks from great restaurants and bars, but on a quiet, tucked away street. Joey and Steph are great hosts and they strike the right balance of being there when you need them and giving you space otherwise.
We enjoyed a marvellous two weeks staying with Joey and Steph recently. The house is extremely comfortable and, very importantly during an unseasonal cold snap, was super cozy and quick to warm up.
We found everything we needed in the kitchen and really felt as tho we were in a "home away from home."
This was a great introduction to AirBnB for us as we found the listing to be precise, detailed and completely correct in all respects; we also found the whole process of booking straightforward and easy.
We will definitely try to stay with Joey and. Steph and their delightful daughter when we revisit Austin.
The final pleasure for us was having Dozer in the yard to play with and pat!
Great cozy guest house in East Texas. Joey was great and the house was as listed. Very sweet dog and all the amenities for a nice homey visit. Thanks guys!
Our hosts were away at the time of our visit but they reached out via email to make sure we had everything we needed and were comfortable. We had told them that we were coming to Austin, in part, for the great vegan food, and they thoughtfully suggested a few fantastic vegan places right in the neighborhood.
The little house was perfect for three of us. Extremely comfortable and well equipped. And the location was great, we were able to quickly drive into town and to go for morning runs along Lady Bird Lake, a short distance away. Highly recommend!
My friends and I had a wonderful experience at Joey and Steph's. The guest house was wonderfully eclectic and immaculately kept. The location is great with restaurants and entertainment nearby. Steph was very friendly and always available to answer any questions. I would definitely stay there again!
This is a great guest house in a very hip and cool neighborhood. It was larger than we expected. It's really more like a one bedroom house.
Everything was cleaned to a very high standard and everything smelled fresh and clean.
The furnishings were all high quality and comfortable. There were lots of extra little touches that made our stay terrific.
The hosts are really great people. They are extra-milers. They went out of their way to make sure everything was wonderful.
This home lives up to the photos and more. The zen environment is excellent for everyone. The home sleeps so many and they accommodate to little ones as well. They helped by putting starter snacks in frig which made our vacation off to the right start. So close to where you wanna be in Austin. No matter what you want to do it's just right around the corner.
We will stay again and again.

Howdy! My name is Joey, and I live in Austin with my wife, daughter and dog.
I originally hail from West Texas, and work at the University of Texas.
We're easy-going folk, and enjoy meeting all the people that stay with us. We've met so many friendly, interesting, and intelligent people that come and stay with us, and we really enjoy the Airbnb experience.
