The space

Our home is casual and comfortable and we are happy to share it with you. Lots of pillows in your room and comfy couches in the common area. Use our home as a place to rest up after exploring Austin’s great food scene or outdoor activities.

Where you’ll be

Austin, Texas, United States

Rent a bike or scooter. Drive your own car. Take Uber/Lyft or bus. Inexpensive trip to all Austin has to offer! Online maps show all the dedicated bike lanes and trails around us. We are next door to the 750 acre former site of the Austin international airport-now called Mueller. The parkland is beautiful and there are plenty of places to eat and drink including a BD Riley Pub, Alamo Drafthouse, Halcyon Coffee and Spirits, WhichCraft Beer Store/Bar, Lick Ice Cream, Vera Cruz taco trailer and many more. My fav coffee trailer is there-Streamway. Say hey to Collin or Dave. Check COVID 19 rules and closure info before heading out.

A local farmer's market happens every Sunday morning. Head over to Le Madeline for a chocolate croissant or Torchy's Tacos for breakfast lunch or dinner. Yes we love our tacos that much. Tyson’s Tacos has a funky Austin vibe and is just down Airport Blvd. From sushi to sandwiches, sake to sumatra coffee, Mueller and this end of Airport Blvd have it all!

Darrell and I live in a cool, funky, 1950's neighborhood in East Austin, just a 10 minute drive from downtown.Food is our passion, especially BBQ. Austin is known for its dining establishments, from the taco trailers to the trendy, intimate places just minutes from the house. We guide you on the COVID-19 open/closes. Coffee is a staple in our household so as our guest you could enjoy your choice of cold-brew coffee over ice or a simple brew from our Ninja coffee machine The beans are roasted by any number of local roasters right here in Austin. Our second passion is live music. Before the pandemic of 2020, on any night you could have found us searching for a new band we read about in the Austin Chronicle . The live music scene rocked seven nights a week in Austin. We especially love the Saxon Pub and the Elephant Room. We hope and pray that this will return post COVID-19 During our own road trips it's not so much about the destination as the journey and what we can do and see along the way. Life is meant to be enjoyed with food and friends and we hope you will join us in the adventure.
