We live on the property in the main house that faces the apartment, and therefore ask for grace and courtesy from you and will of course extend that to you. We have 2 active middle school sons that are known to play soccer in the backyard. Come expecting that you are right in the middle of a neighborhood and life will be going on around you. We offer a home-y environment, not a pristine hotel. If anything is not working properly, we will do our best to get it taken care of. We both work full time so on-site response time may not be immediate! We ask that you not smoke on the property, but do let us know if you need anything. We love our spot here in Central Austin and look forward to sharing it with you!

We loved Caroline's place. It was very spacious, clean, and in a great neighborhood close to shops and restaurants.

We loved the Casita! It was a short pleasant 1 1/2 block walk to a store with fresh produce and many specialty items. Next to that great store are several yummy restaurants, bakery, cheese store. The neighborhood has beautiful homes, lots of trees and sweet birdsong. We enjoyed going to the Elisabet Ney Museum next door. This Casita was such a good location to get around most parts of Austin. The bed is comfy, the kitchenette setup was helpful. The living room area is quite comfortable.

Great location! Very homey and comfortable. Wifi signal was a bit weak but not any worse than what we've experienced at hotels.

We choose this airbnb because we wanted to cook meals and my husband can't live without cable. But it was just perfectly comfortable. The bed was super comfortable with extra pillow that helped us to sleep well. It felt like home.

Caroline User ProfileCaroline is a superhost.

My husband Adam and I run a small, arts focused high school here in the neighborhood called Griffin School. Prior to joining him in this endeavor, I worked in the film industry here in Texas as a location manager, scouting and arranging the logistics for movies and television productions of all sizes. I grew up in South Carolina, spent a year studying in Innsbruck, Austria and graduated from the University of Notre Dame, before making my way to the warmer climate of Austin. We have 2 sons, ages 12 and 14. They are sweet, athletic boys who spend much of their time at the basketball courts and park across the street. Austin has been my home for 23 years and I love every single thing about it-the celebration of eccentricities, the live music, the vibrancy and activism, the weather and the fabulous people that make it such a special and unique town.
