Great value for money in a fantastic location, just as described. Within a 5 minute walk from most anything you could possibly need on South Congress. Great home base for exploring Austin

Jill's upstairs is perfect place to stay in South Congress! All the cool stuff is nearby and in 10 mins with a bike you are downtown. Jill is the perfect host and so easy to communiate with and she must be the nicest person in SoCo. This was my 2nd time here and hopefully will be there for the 3rd soon!

We loved staying at Jill's place. Rustic and full of character. You couldn't ask for a better location, on a quiet street a very short walk from South Congress. Future guests should know you have the option of two beds - inside (quieter, with A/C) and out on the screened porch. We ended up staying on the porch every night to catch the cool breezes but keep in mind busy squirrels will be your alarm clocks. We loved the outdoor shower - brilliant for cooling down after a hot day. We arrived pretty late and Jill was there to welcome us and give us the lowdown on the local area. After that we had complete privacy. Highly recommended.

Thank you for your sweet response. So glad you enjoyed your stay here. You captured what I want for every guest here. I'll have to have a talk with the squirrels though. I forget to tell guests that there are earplugs in the drawer next to screen porch bed. Anyway, I hope you can return again some day!

Jill was very easy to communicate with before and during our stay in Austin! A friend and I stayed for ACL and the location for the price couldn't be better. Just a short walk to South Congress or even into downtown. We rented bikes and biked around which was very fun. We also loved the additional screen room with the bed too! The cozy interior decor included old Sun hats and an array of paintings that made us feel like we were staying at grandmas house :) The place comes with a stove, refrigerator and full sink to cook a small meal if need be, (no pots or pans tho). The outdoor shower was a fun experience, but felt a little revealing. All in all, great location, great price. Thanks again Jill!

Jill was a wonderful host. She was very helpful and easy to get a hold of if I had questions. She gave me a bunch of helpful tips, and left the house stocked with just enough of everything I could need. She even left some orange juice and bagels in the fridge. The place itself was situated among some beautiful trees on a quiet street. I just had to walk a block to reach restaurants on south congress or to take the 801 bus downtown. Really an ideal location. My only challenge was the outdoor shower as I'm a taller woman (5' 9") but it was still manageable.

Jill was such a welcoming host. She went out of her way to make sure my boyfriend and I were comfortable. The space was quiet and private and being able to sleep in the sunroom area was really nice.

Jill is the best host ever. The house is more than I expected: totally independent, very well decorated, with hundreds of nice cute details and she was thoughtful enough to put some yogurt, cheese, and even wine on the frigo to greet me. She took me to my first meeting at MLA convention and at the last day she gracefully invited me to one of her weekly jams at one of her nice musicians friends. A real treat! PS: The house is exactly as is look like in the pictures taken - they dont lie! It is a dream place! And her son and daughter are very nice and helpful. I strongly recommend the experience.

Sorry the problem with the T.V. couldn't be fixed while you were here. I'm glad you enjoyed the clawfoot tub inside. Though the outdoor shower has hot water, it's not for everyone. Actually, I don't usually do ABNB from Dec. til early March(our short winter!) so it hasn't been an issue before. thanks for the comments

Hi. We live downstairs from this studio with private entrance. We enjoy living in the hubbub of Austin just 2 blocks from many restaurants and entertainments yet is is a quiet older neighborhood with many old oak trees. I'm a musician with a band in Austin called the Studebakers(look us up!) I'm a clinical psychotherapist and also own and manage other home rentals. Besides music, yoga, the outdoors,reading are my favorite pastimes.
This studio has a lot of personality. There are antiques and my band memorabilia. I live here except when I rent it out mostly for festivals and long visits.
We enjoy hosting and meeting people from all over the world..
