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.
It was my husband's second stay and my first at this apartment. We thoroughly enjoyed it. It has a wonderful peaceful sense about it. It is clean and spacious. Joey met us at the gate, with their friendly dog and both made us feel very welcome. The apartment is in a very quiet, peaceful area with lovely restaurants close by. We will stay there again.
What a great place! Steph and Joey were great hosts and very accommodating. Wish I could have stayed longer.
We had a great time in Austin and found this a perfect base to get around the city, with plenty of choice within walking distance too which was good for us as we had no car!
Joey has been a great host, very helpful and accommodating.
Oh and the shower is awesome!
Lovely place to stay, quiet, safe, clean, close to downtown really what more could you ask for! Close enough to get a B-cycle at Saltillo plaza, or the MACC and ride around town lake, get ready for looks from locals if you join a group ride (which I did! Ha!). Great restaurants nearby.
The furnishings were beautiful, with lots of nice details. Astounding wall of books (as if you have time to read while you are in Austin, but still fun to peruse!). Comfy bed, lots of pillows to choose from. Gorgeous bathroom, very clean! Kitchen is well stocked with all you need to make a meal if you really didn't want to go out and sample the amazing foods Austin has to offer. Felt like a home away from home. Joey and Steph are great folx who go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need!
Steph and Joey were amazing and so nice! The property was clean, perfect size, beautifully decorated, and in a convenient location! We will definitely be staying again when we return to Austin. They have a dog, but the dog is so friendly and was not at all aggressive.
My mom and I had a great two night visit at Steph and Joey's. The guest house is as it is advertised, and we enjoyed our time in Austin. It was really nice to find some breakfast treats in the fridge and to have our own quiet space during our stay. I would definitely stay here again.

About the Host, Joey And Steph
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.
