The Space

3 bedroom, 2 bath; 1 king bed, 1 queen futon, & 1 twin bed with plenty of room for air mattresses or alternative sleeping spaces. Beautiful open living room with large triple bay window, bright & cheerful. Big back porch overlooking a 45-acre greenbelt beyond the back fence. Plenty of trails to walk during the day, with a creek after rains.

*Note: Our greenbelt is large & beautiful with many trails, however it is not a part of the Barton Creek Greenbelt.*

Guest Access

Converted garage is a custom designed personal training gym: TRX body conditioning system, dumbbells, yoga mats, self-contained heating & AC system, rubber floor. Jesse is a highly-specialized trainer & massage therapist; you're welcome to schedule a home session during your visit.

Kitchen is well-stocked with a wide selection of pots & pans, seasonings, dishes; gas stove, toaster, French Press, juicer, food processor--make your own meals when you want to stay in. (You provide your own food.)

Interaction with Guests

I (Jesse) work daily in the home fitness studio with clients. I'll likely sleep in the gym while you're here, and only come in to use the kitchen and the bathroom. If you don't want to talk, that's cool. But otherwise I'd be happy to get to know you and give you recommendations on things to do in the area.

The Neighborhood

You can walk around here, however it's not what we'd call a "walkable" neighborhood--our part of town isn't really set up for that (yet!). But everything is very close.

10-15 minutes to downtown/South Congress/South Lamar. Starbucks just around the corner or nearby local coffee shop Strange Brew; Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Cajun, Mexican, English, and American restaurants all within 5 minute drive. 3 specialty & 2 traditional grocery stores plus lots of retail shopping within 2 miles.

Getting around

Multiple bus routes nearby. There's an airport shuttle you can rent to bring you to our house (Blue Van), or take a cab--it's about 15-20 minutes.

Other Things to Note

This is a family home; if you're traveling with adults only, no worries--kid's stuff does not rule the house. However, if you've got kids in tow, they'll have plenty to keep themselves entertained. We only ask that you treat our & our kid's things with care.

One indoor/outdoor cat lives here. Lennon is a talker, and he likes attention. Please be kind to him, he loves people.

Between the two of us we've covered every major university and community college in Central Texas ;)
Jesse: Licensed Massage Therapist, Personal Trainer; Katy: International Education Support
Jesse: I'm a lifelong South Austinite & I've watched this city grow from small-town to small-town-with-large-population. Any questions you have about events, restaurants, landmarks, history, culture, quirky trivia, I'll be happy to answer--or at the very least make up an amusing answer. My wife & I keep a happy, fun-loving, & grounded home with our son. Living in SouthSouth Austin definitely has its perks--we're able to experience all the incredible entertainment this city has to offer, & then come back to our quiet neighborhood & watch the deer eat grass just over the back fence. Great neighbors and quiet area. When traveling, I like to go for adventure: snowboarding, hiking, and/or camping with my family. My wife Katy works in international education for a local company, and speaks some Turkish. She loves to tell you why Austin is awesome, and will give you all the recommendations you could ever want for just about any activity you're interested in. Our son likes to ask questions, eat, and build stuff. Staying here at our home means you'll have the comfort of an open, easy-to-live-in space with little interference. I'm never more than a phone call away should you need anything at all.
