Description

The space

But funky in a good way!

Please read the whole description and check availability before you hit "book it". There are price changes for special events. This house is available nightly and for month to month rentals up to 90 days.
I'm a licensed innkeeper in Austin Tx., OL V. My rates include all local hotel taxes.

The Bouldin neighborhood is one of Austin's hippest areas with plenty of fun things to do and places to eat, drink and be merry. All of the pictures of the Bouldin Neighborhood on Airbnb's site are within 4 blocks of my house. It's a great walking/biking neighborhood and close to many I like to say you're within 3 miles of most anything you would probably want to do in Austin.

This is a 1 bedroom+ studio with 2 beds. 1 bath house (600 sq.ft. on) 1/3 of an acre. Full kitchen, extra linens and towels, coffee maker, microwave. My style is eclectic for sure. I'm an artist and it looks like an artist's home.

Breakdown of how many people:
1-2 people is perfect. 3 is comfortable. 4 is not uncomfortable.
5-6 is doable for instance, 2 kids.
Living room twin with trundle-2 people
Bedroom queen-2 people+twin
A twin can be added-1 person
An air mattress can be added upon request. (the good kind!)

You will share a huge yard with the big house but also have a private courtyard. I live in the big house and this is my guest house. I have 2 small dogs that will hello. Your pets are welcome for an extra charge.

One of the best things about my listing is the location
-1.5 miles from downtown.
- It's a 15 drive to Circuit of the Americas racetrack which hosts the Formula 1 Grand Prix.
-The house is about 10-15 minutes from the airport and is a cheap uber ride.
- It takes 10 minutes to get to the convention center by bike.
-The #5 bus is next door from me
- I’m 2 blocks from S. Lamar- lots of venues and restaurants. 4 blocks from South 1st-lots of trendy food trailers and restaurants. And 8 blocks to South Congress. That’s right, THE world famous part of South Congress.
- Across my back fence is Thai Fresh and Thrice coffee house and venue
- 3 blks away is Bouldin Creek Café and Polvo’s Mexican restaurant. -Zilker Park- 1.5 mi.,
-The Long Center-1 mi., and Lady Bird Lake
- This is a great place to be during SXSW as we also have SXS Austin for free everywhere in my neighborhood. And no wristbands!
-During ACL you're 5 min by bike because it's all downhill. Coming home is another thing!

Money Stuff:
-Each person over 2 During SXSW is $100
- Each person over 2 is $35 except during during F1($75)
-F1 has a 3 night minimum, ACL has a 3/night minimum
-pets are $25/day

I’m an Austin native and a wealth of resources and information. Knowing a local is like gold when you’re traveling so ask anything.

Thanks for considering my place!

Guest access

Laundry room, German beer table.

Interaction with guests

I will interact with you as much or little as you want. If you just want to ask questions or hear stories, I'm happy to oblige. If not, no problem. I take all social clues from my guests. Sometimes I stay in my studio, sometimes I'm gone.

The neighborhood

Even though gentrification and property taxes have moved a lot of what others considered "weird" but I've always considered pretty normal, there are still enough Movie stars, rock stars, and vatos to keep things interesting.

Getting around

The # 5 bus is in front of my house. Walking distance to some of Austin's best restaurants, nightlife and activities. Biking is very easy. Some of the best urban trails in Tx,

Other things to note

The washer and dryer are on the porch of the big house.

I'm an "old school Austin" native. I'm a natural raconteur and love nothing more than meeting people from
other cultures. I love all creatures with 4 legs but especially canines. I'm an artist and all the cliches that apply. Live music and politics are my passion.
