On Burleson Road you'll be 10 minutes from everything - the airport, downtown, East 6th Street, Zilker Park and Barton Springs, and South Congress, and the up-and-coming East Riverside scene.

There are 7 grocery stores within 5 miles of the house. The local stand-by, HEB is the closest and the Flagship Whole Foods is about 4 miles away.

Mabel Davis Park includes a hike & bike trail that is great for a walk or run.

There are also a few great places to eat for a quick bite on Oltorf.

The space

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.

The stay for the most part was fine aside from the fact that we killed a cockroach in one of the bedrooms and there wasn't a pull out couch as listed.

Sheila is very nice and communicated well. We did not spend much time at the rental, mostly just to sleep and head out early in the morning. So if you are planning on being out and about this place will work great for you.

This place was quaint and cozy, perfect for our visit to Austin. It was exactly as described. We used all 3 beds, the third being an air mattress which turned out to be very comfortable. I particularly liked that the house had an iron and a hair dryer, because I needed to use both and did not have room to pack them. Check in & out was easy.

Sheila's place was comfortable, cool, and located close to nearly everything from the airport to downtown. She is an excellent, helpful, communicative host.

Great duplex centrally located, it has all the basics you need for a comfortable stay. Plenty of hot water in the shower. It is kind of a wooded area so lots of bugs at night . Overall it was a great stay, it worked for our group!

Sheila was an amazing host with a fantastic home. My friend and I's stay in Austin was incredible because of how accommodating and welcoming the host and home were. The next time I am visiting Austin I will try and stay here. 6/5 ️

Good location but we were only able to stay for one of four nights booked because the condition of the property was not what we expected. Three stars because remaining payment was refunded quickly without any difficulties.

Sheila User Profile

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!!
