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.
This is a beautiful little place to stay in East Austin. It's incredibly well cared for and very clean. Joey and Steph were very kind and helpful with lots of suggestions of what to do in the area. They have the place stocked with everything you could need including bathroom amenities like shampoo, soap, hairdryer and towels, most anything you'd need to do light cooking, spices, tea, and even drinks in the fridge. The bed is very comfortable and has just about every type of pillow to choose from. There are a number of good places to eat within walking distance (Launderette was amazing!) and the neighborhood was very quiet and safe. We always found street parking easily. We would stay here again in a heartbeat if we return to Austin. It was the best airbnb experience we have had so far!
Steph and Joey! Thanks again for letting us stay at your amazing guest house in Austin Texas. My wife and I visited the great city of Austin last weekend and stayed at Steph an Joey's guest house. The guest house is absolutely great. We would trade it in for our one bedroom apartment in the Bay Area. Not only was the apartment great Steph and Joey had all sorts of treats for us in the fridge. The both of them took the time to welcome us and tell us all that Austin has to offer. Our trip to Austin was absolutely great! We will definitely visit Austin and the guest house again in the bar future.
Joey and Steph were great hosts as they went above and beyond expectations. Our flight arrived a little late into Austin, but they were very accommodating. Also, the fridge was stocked with plenty of breakfast options including delicious coffee! The property was very accurate in description and photos. The photos might not even do justice on just how updated, comfy and inviting the house is. There was plenty of space for the two of us, probably could have invited another couple to join our trip. Parking out front was never an issue, but with this location, everything is within walking distance.
Our stay at Joey And Steph's guest house was great. House is beautiful and very stylish, located in the most hip area in Austin. Very clean, very friendly - thanks for drinks in the fridge. Hosts are super and easy to communicate with. We surely want to come back in the future!
