We're about to get married and need money for our wedding...you can help support us and get us started out right!
**TECHIES/STARTUPPERS WANTED!** Are you a startup founder or entrepreneur? I run a startup, too, and love to network with other startup founders and company owners. This is part of what makes Airbnb so fun--let's meet!
ABOUT THE HOUSE:
I own this house and my fiance (Brian) and I live in it. We're in one of the best neighborhoods in Austin--Allandale. We are south of the 183 just off Burnet.
Dog/cat lovers will love this one! (We have both--and we keep the house extremely clean.) Beautiful master bedroom in 1750 sq.ft. house. You get your own place to sleep on a luxury memory foam mattress (king size!) There's also a desk and chair, so you can chill out with your laptop, as well as a TV, and some places to plug in your stuff. And--a closet and dresser where you can hang or place items.
It's a pretty big room--about 12x12. This room is extremely QUIET--it's incredibly peaceful and looks out on our back yard.
--QUIET: Very peaceful neighborhood/room. Sleep well with virtually 0 noise.
--Your own bathroom (shower + bath tub + sink)
--Free and convenient street parking right outside our house
--Free coffee/tea (Keurig coffee maker)
--Free use of washer/dryer
--Fridge space (fridge has very nice water filter on it)
--Kitchen space (the kitchen is fantastic--my fiance is an amazing cook and we have a fully stocked kitchen with a Vita-Mix, gas stove, oven, convection oven, microwave, etc.)
--No keys required: We give you a passcode and you'll be able to use that to get into the house. Never have to worry about a key!
Within walking distance, there is:
--A beautiful park with ponds, swings, and more
--HEB grocery store (15 minutes)
--Alamo Drafthouse Theater on Anderson (20 minutes)
--30+ restaurants, bars, etc. (And the requisite Wal-Mart.)
--A coffee trailer!
An easy 15-20 minute drive to downtown. U-T is about 15 minutes away. AND the #3 bus is literally less than a block away and will take you directly to U-T with no transfers in 22 minutes, or downtown (6th & Congress) with no transfers in 36 minutes. Plenty of street parking is available, and the street is extremely safe and quiet.
Our wedding is in 2014 and we'd love your help at making it extra special and amazing. Come stay with us, enjoy Austin, and get a good night's rest while you're at it!

Most comfortable bed ever! Great foam pillows. My fiancée can be a fussy sleeper sometimes, and she had some of the best rest she's had in a while.
We were in the master suite and had plenty of room. The room was simple, clean, and we had plenty of drawers and closet space for our clothes. It's very comfortable to have your own clean bathroom.
Also we were quite busy with wedding planning and were coming and going all day long. Our hosts gave us plenty of space and privacy as we kept busy. They were friendly whenever we ran into them.
Overall we were very happy with our stay and I'd recommend this room to anyone looking to have a comfortable and fun time in Austin!
Erica and Brian are a charming young couple and the room in Daugherty St is comfortable and quiet, and was ideal for my purpose. Have no hesitation recommending it. Easy to get the bus downtown, and getting around on the $2 "day pass" is more than economical! Was a bit complicated getting there for the first time, so I got a taxi.Taxi ride from University area, and also to the Greyhound bus station was about $20, so that wasn't too bad either.
This was my first AirBNB experience and it'll probably be hard to top. Erica and Brian were excellent hosts: very friendly, accommodating and accessible (Brian had quite a few excellent food recommendations - every place we tried from his list was top-notch!). The place is exactly as described - clean, quiet and convenient. I only wish our schedules had lined up a bit more so that we could have gotten to know them better!
Erica and Brain are real cool and friendly people and the room was amazing..definitely the best place I've ever stayed through AirBnb. The room has a big memory-foam bed, desk, bathroom attached..it feels like it's own apartment.. The place is in a good location with a good place to eat across the street and quick access to the highways that will take you wherever you want to go..
Erica and Brian were great and very hospitable! The room and bathroom was nice, clean, and I love the easy access to get in and out of the house. Wifi was great. They even provided a nifty list of useful information and extra linens/towels in the closet. Thank you!
Everything was exactly as advertised> Erica and Brian were friendly and helpful, and we would have spent more time with them if our schedules had been more in sync. As it was, we came and went as we pleased, the king bed was comfortable, and there were absolutely no hassles. The neighborhood is pleasant, and convenient to stores, restaurants, and a bus that runs downtown in about 40 minutes (we didn't use it because we had a rental car.) As icing on the cake, some folks down the street had a Christmas display that was synchronized with music on a private radio station that you could tune into outside the house. All in all, we'd unreservedly recommend this accommodation to anyone.
The room was comfortable and the location was good for me. Having my own means to enter meant I could come and go as I pleased without bothering my hosts. The bed and pillows were comfortable, and the supplemental heater came in handy as a couple of nights were unusually cold for the Austin area.
They were cool. Very comfortable bed and easy to get in and out of the house without trouble. It was also cool that they were both in to the whole internet startup scene since I am a programmer. Nice place.
Staying with Erica and Brian was like visiting old friends we haven't seen in years. They were so kind and helpful with our trip to Austin, and the room was great to stay in. Couldn't have asked for a better Airbnb experience. Thanks guys!
Brian and Erica were great hosts. I especially enjoyed their kitchen and chatting with Brian about cooking! This location is just perfect - easy to get anywhere in Austin - and a nice, walkable, safe neighborhood. The master bedroom and ensuite bathroom were clean, spacious, and all-around terrific. As another reviewer mentioned, it's like having your own apartment with large closets, king super comfortable bed, desk and stands plus nice bathroom - and door to the cool backyard. The full week at Brian and Erica's place was great!
