Guest access

There are no keys, there are digital locks on the doors. You will have the entire house and backyard yourself. Very private. I stay with friends in north Austin.

Interaction with guests

I rarely meet my guests. However, I know every inch of Austin, and I can match any guests interests with something to do here. I'd even show you around town if you like. When this house is rented, I stay in North Austin.

The neighborhood

My street and neighborhood are quiet and safe. Restaurants & Shopping are a mile away, bit of a hike. Texas is a border state, you'll hear Spanish spoken.

Getting around

3.6 miles to 6th street (Downtown) (Taxi $12-$15, Bus $1)
3.8 miles to Auditorium Shores
5.0 miles to Zilker Park/ACL Fest
5.0 miles to Univ. of Texas (shuttles every 10 minutes)
10.2 miles to Circuit of the America's Track

Uber & Lyft don't operate here. Mayor Adler ran them out of town. FARE & GetMe offer similar services.

Austin is a Car2go city, but the house is 1/4 mile out of range.

House is serviced by 4 bus routes. See CapMetro:
The bus stops are 1/3 mile (7 minute) walk down to Wickersham@Oltorf
#20 to/from downtown (6 am - 11 pm everyday)
#483 to/from downtown (12 am- 3 am, every night except Sundays)
#411 to/from downtown (8 pm - 3 am Thur-Sat, Sept - May)
#331 to/from SOCO & Lamar Blvd.
#100 to/from Airport (stop Riverside@Wickersham .9 miles away)

Other things to note

Early check-in and/or late check-out can usually be accommodated if requested.
I require all contact information be posted and verified on their account before I will accept a reservation.
Please trust the total that Airbnb calculates.
All taxes are included (I pay them). There are no hidden costs.


House Rules
No smoking
No parties or events
May not be safe or suitable for infants (Under 2 years)
Check in is anytime after 3PM

(website hidden) of Austin Code allows for no more than 6 unrelated adults to occupy a home. The renter of the home is obligated to enforce compliance. The city employs Code Compliance Officers who may approach a home and ask permission to enter the home for inspection. If this unlikely event should occur, the homeowner suggests, to the renter, that they deny the request to enter the home, as is protected under the U.S. Constitution.
2.A House Manual kept o the kitchen counter. The renter is obligated to read and understand it when they arrive. It contains additional, minor, items not listed here.
3.Hot Tub - Keep the cover down when not in use. Don't spill drinks. I provide covered cups.
4.Use of the SunSetter awning on the deck is permitted only if there is no chance of rain and winds are less than 20 mph. Do not use as a rain shield. Close it when nobody is occupying the back desk.
5. No smoking in the house.
6.Keep noise and music low after 10 pm. My neighbors are teachers.
7.Abide by all city, county, state and federal laws.
8.Only typical residential home use is permitted. This house is not a party venue.
Again, more minor rules are listed in the House Manual you may read upon arrival.

Gregg's place is really well planned out, with lots of details going beyond what you would expect of a host. Down to the mood lighting in the bedroom, important sections highlighted sections of the house manual, motion sensor activated lighting pretty much everywhere. Gregg even took the time to mail back an item I had mistakenly left in the place.

Great location between downtown and the airport. Quick rides to 6th street and Rainey street. Nice and quiet neighborhood. Gregg is a great host and house was really clean and modern. Instructions and communication were clear and easy. Digital door locks were great, so no one needed to carry keys. Plenty of blankets, towels, and pillows. Very accomodating place to stay, especially for groups or families!

Gregg's house was great. Exactly as described. The pictures don't do justice for the actually size once you arrive. We had 7 in our group and slept comfortably, the couches were huge and accommodated to guys each over 6ft. We would definitely stay again if in Austin! Thanks Gregg!

We spent a weekend at this beautiful home - quiet residential location, yet less than 5 minutes to restaurants and groceries. Tastefully furnished, kitchen was well stcoked. The backyard is a nice bonus!

Gregg User ProfileGregg is a superhost.

44 year old. IT Professional. I find myself single at the moment and so I have a nice house to myself. I love my life in Austin, but love to travel also. I've had great luck with Airbnb both as renter and renting out my own home. People have been respectful of my home, as I have others.
