General Austin Awesomeness
*If you're cool - we're cool
*No pets of any kind
*No cigarette butts in the yard
*No smoking next to open windows
*Don't be crazy loud at 5am
*Don't break anything
*We do not have a cleaning service nor do we charge for cleaning via Airbnb. PLEASE help us keep things under control by following the directions found in the house manual. With your help we are able to keep the cost of the room low and allow as many people who are interested to stay with us and enjoy the wonderfulness that is Austin, Texas.
*We use the back porch quite often, more so on the weekends. However on any given night there is the possibility of music/conversation/beer happening down stairs. Please feel free to join us or to ask us to hush up - no problem :)
I have lived in Austin going on 16 years but it's been my home from day one. I'm a school teacher and have summers off with additional breaks throughout the year. As the rest of the world works during these times, I have to keep myself entertained and part of that is running a part time B&B [but I don’t cook, so ignore that second B]. Taking care of people is what I'm best at: my students, my family (I just got married), and possibly YOU...
Austin is an amazing place for outdoor activities, we live 3 miles [a down-hill bike route] from the Lady Bird Lake Hike and Bike Trail.
The trail caters to bikers, walkers, kayaking, dog walking, canoes and...Barton Springs Pool!
The main house was built in the 1940's and we have since added a detached garage apartment/efficiency living situation as well as a detached garage apartment/giant living room type space. The efficiency and the apartment are the available spaces along with the shared yard. We rent out the main house for SXSW, ACL, and F1 Races only.
