Description

The Space

If you want to have fun on your trip to Austin, you've found the right listing! We live in the best neighborhood in a modern house thats just across the street from the new boardwalk. You can literally bike anywhere from here in 10 minutes without any hills along the protected hike and bike trail system and the new boardwalk!

We enjoy meeting new people and want you to see the best of Austin so we do more than just hand you a key. We give you guidebooks, tell your personal favorites, and are sure to invite you to anything our group of friends is doing for the days you are here.

Our house is great. It's a super safe neighborhood, you can walk or bike anywhere downtown quickly, right next to the bats of the Congress street bridge and near all the shopping and restaurants on South Congress. You can also walk to Rainey street via the boardwalk!

Attractions & restaurants within walking/biking distance: Everything "South Congres," St. Edwards University, Curra's mexican restaurant, Whip Inn, Starbucks, Hop Doddy, South Congress Cafe, Magnolias, Opal Divines, Hey Cupcake, Homeslice pizza.

Convention center is 1 mile away because you have to go around the river, but its a fun bike ride and really easy to get to. Airport is 15 minutes away and also really easy to drive there.

Now for the PLAY part: We have a tons of toys and we don't mind sharing. Think of us as local guides and not just someone who passes you the key. We would love for you to borrow our kayaks or canoe, and you must ride our bikes around the town lake trail. For those who really like the play, I would love to take you scuba diving the spring water, or you can borrow our snorkel gear and use it at Barton Springs. We also have golf clubs and disc golf frisbee's we wouldn't mind letting you borrow if you ask.

We can also help you find: good mountain biking trails, some spelunking, hiking trails, a place to surf the river, the best lookouts, secret springs, and alot more. Search "Aaron Guidehop" to see where I give other people local tours of outdoor adventures.

If you need a rental car, we have those too! We rent using a site called relay rides. I bet you can find my convertibles on there. We also have motorcycles and scooters. One has a sidecar!

-------------------------------------------------------
I say the house can fit 12 people. That really means thats the most I'll allow! You'll have to figure out how and where to sleep based on these sleeping quarters:

2 queen beds (sleep 4)
2 chaise lounges (sleeps 2)
2 twin beds in trundle format (sleeps 2)
1 fold out couch (sleeps 1, possibly 2)
1 regular couch (sleeps 1)
1 queen air mattress can sleep 2

---------------------------------------------------------

The bottom line: We live in a nice house in the great neighborhood. You can ride our bikes anywhere you need to go and we will go out of our way to make sure you enjoy your time in Austin. What are you waiting for.... come Stay & Play!

You'll have access to everything including bicycles and kayaks!

I'm easy going. I love to hangout and get to know you and show you around, but I can also pick up on the hints if you are busy and just want to do your thing. Pick your level of interaction!


We live in Travis Heights near South Congress. There are lots of shops and restaurants nearby. There is a good grocery store less than a mile away. Our neighborhood has a lot of hiking trails through numerous nature preserves, there are good free tennis courts nearby, and the new boardwalk defines the way we get around.

You can bicycle anywhere downtown easily within minutes.

If you need motorized transportation, I can rent you a car or minivan.

Otherwise, there are plenty of bus stops nearby, but using UBER is even better. Use the code: C2AJM to get $20 off your first ride.

Look through all of our photos. I try to show you fun stuff to do around Austin and those things are mixed in with our photos. We will go the extra mile to make sure you have a great trip. Our 170+ five star reviews will show you that!
