About this listing

SXSW! If you are headed to Austin, I have a private bedroom and bath available in my home at a bargain price! I am a native Austinite who is still very involved in the Austin music scene and can give you tips, if desired, from a local perspective!

The bed is awesome with a built in massager and separate head/foot controls!

The Space

Tropical getaway in a very cool, neighborhood! Close in Lake Travis near the Oasis with private lake access across the street.

One downstairs bedroom, with a queen sized bed available in cool, tropical decor private home. Each side of the bed operates separately, can be adjusted at head and feet. Bedroom has a wardrobe for hanging clothes, which makes the space a bit less spacious. It can be moved to another area if more room is needed. Other areas in house and decks are available and spacious. Private bath is across from bedroom.

Kitchen access includes a gas stove and oven, a microwave, a refrigerator, and a great coffee maker. Dining room. Wireless internet available. Home has air conditioning. Great sound system. Great outdoor environment. Parking available. Washer and dryer available for use. Deck access with above ground pool available in summer. Guests can use decks, great views, especially at night!

Approximately 25-30 minutes to most Austin venues. Being a native Austinite, I am happy to give advice, if desired. $99 per night or will consider discount for consecutive stay.

Across from Lake Travis, with lake access just across the street at homeowner's cove. The water level in the lake fluctuates at times, but is totally full again! :-) It is wonderfully clear and warm most of the year! The well known restaurant, the Oasis, "Sunset Capital of Texas", with its incredible view of the lake, famous margaritas, great atmosphere and live music.. is on my street! There are also two public parks actually on my street, one being the infamous Hippie Hollow and the other Windy Point, well known for scuba diving and instruction, along with wind surfing.

Will consider pets on an individual basis. I have 2 friendly dogs and 1 affectionate cat, indoor/outdoor, mostly wherever I am!

Guest Access

Aside from your private bedroom and bath, you will have access to the kitchen, downstairs living areas, dining room and decks. Also, the pool is available during warm months. There is a cozy Tiki Bar area just outside of the bedroom and bath outdoors. And of course, there's the beautiful Lake Travis access just across the street!

Interaction with Guests

I am available to share information if you'd care to know more about local music, restaurants, or other interests. Being a lifelong native Austinites, I have a good knowledge of cool places and things to do! :-)

The Neighborhood

My neighborhood is unique in that it is reflective of the eclectic Austin atmosphere. It is very private and crime has not been an issue since I've lived here since the late 1990's. Most of us are water lovers with the beautiful Lake Travis just across the street, with access for you to use!

Getting Around

There is no nearby public transportation, with a car being necessary to access the property.

Other Things to Note

Although my bedroom is upstairs, I do also use the living areas downstairs, so that space will be shared. I do my best to be considerate and give my guests as much privacy as possible, but am at home a reasonable amount of time. Also, my two friendly dogs (a golden retriever and a golden lab), along with my affectionate, fluffy cat do spend nights with me and are both inside and outside, so you must be pet friendly!
