Come stay at a Mid-Century Modern inspired urban homestead conveniently located in South Austin just east of I35 and north of HWY 71(Ben White). 2 bedrooms sleep up to 4 people comfortably. Stay for a few nights or up to six months. The bedrooms are full of natural light and the view of trees from the windows. Each room has a closet and a dresser/drawers for storage. The bathroom is simple, small and clean with a tub and shower surrounded by white tile. There are shelves in the bathroom cabinet for storing personal toiletries. The kitchen is sufficient, stocked with enough tools to do some simple cooking. I am working on equipping the kitchen better, let me know if you have suggestions! You can do your laundry in the laundry room right outside of the front door.
Located in South Austin in between Oltorf and Hwy 71 on Burleson. It is a short drive to SoCo, SoLa, downtown, the airport and the Barton Creek Greenbelt. There are plenty of restaurants and grocery stores nearby. Hai Ky and 888Cafe are in walking distance. There are 4 grocery stores within 4 miles Central Market, HEB, Sprouts, Wheatsville and a Randall's. We have a great neighborhood liquor store and pool hall. Oat Willie's is also right up the street.
This location is really best suited to those with a car. I have had guests walk to the bus stops and not find it too inconvenient. There are 3 different bus routes within 1/4 mile of a walk. One takes you downtown in about 10 minutes, the other 2 take you across town - one of those goes up Oltorf and crosses South Congress, South First and South Lamar.

I use all natural hand soap from South Austin People and natural bug spray is available from Fleegle Farms (just ask).

- no smoking inside

Sheila's place is perfect for us. Everything about it. Location, amenities and space. Sheila is a great hostess and communication with her is easy.
Location is great and Sheila was a very accommodating host. However, I was disappointed the apt doesn't look like the photos at all. All of the things that make it look cozy are gone like curtains and rods, things on walls, plants, some change in furniture and soft furnishings, etc...so it looks very diff than what I booked. It wouldn't have been such a big deal if I was just there for 2 nights but I was there for 11 days with my family and I carefully chose a place that looked like a cozy home. That's not what we got. I would def recommend if you are just using as a crash pad and are not looking for any frills as again, it's a great location to get anywhere in Austin.
My friends and I enjoyed staying at Sheila's place in Austin, which is conveniently located. Sheila was a very friendly and accommodating host and made our stay a pleasant one.
We loved our visit to Austin during the thanksgiving holiday and our stay at Sheila's place was very comfortable. She was very helpful in giving us tips on where to take our kids and had a list of places to visit. Her place was nice and clean and our kids had good fun. The neighborhood was also nice and safe. Plenty of stores close by for grocery shopping. Hope to visit sometime again.
Shelia was a wonderful host. The apartment was clean and well suited for our needs. We would gladly stay again next time we are in town.
Simple and clean. The location is very convenient, just minutes from Zilker Park, South Congress, etc. Appreciated the natural products stocked. No overhead lights in the main living area, so at night or on a rainy day it can feel dark. Central A/C worked great. Sheila was very hospitable.
We stayed at this place for ACL. The location could not have been better, minutes away from Zilker Park. It's such a home-like place. A true home away from home.
Sheila is an amazing host and takes care of everything. I forgot my toothbrush and found spare ones in the bathroom for me and my other friends. The bedrooms are perfect and the beds are truly comfortable. We had everything we needed.
I look very much forward to next year so I can hopefully stay with Sheila again, I truly apprecciate what she provides for her guests and would totally reccomend.

Hi, I'm Sheila - I've been a long-time landlord (since 1998, actually) and I converted my duplex over to Airbnb in 2012. I've loved every minute of it! I have met some of the most interesting people - people just traveling through, people moving to Austin, people visiting as tourists, race fans, music fans, roller derby fans and players and wedding guests, you name it. I love providing visitors to Austin with a comfortable place to stay and some insider's information about traffic, getting around the city, avoiding tourist traps, and can't-miss Austin sites, sounds and eats.
I run a non-profit afterschool program for my other job. And my other other job is mom to 2 lovely children, 16 and 11 years old. Welcome to Austin!!
