Parking on street with "resident parking permit" . Permit requires a $50 deposit.

Hotel Occupancy taxes of 9% City of Austin and 6% State of Texas are required.
If you reserve prior to May 1, 2017 , no taxes have not been added to your charges collected by Airbnb. Arrangements must be made to pay prior to check-in.
After May 1, 2017, Airbnb will collect for the 6% State Occupancy tax(hotel tax) but not the 9% City hotel occupancy tax. So after May 1, 2017, I will still need to collect for the 9% /City of Austin hotel occ. tax either at check-in.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
It would be less confusing and more convenient if Airbnb would collect all the hotel taxes. Please send them your input, if you would like this simplified.

No cleaning fees.

Sylvia's place is wonderful! It's bright & clean & in a nice, quiet neighborhood. It's close to Rainey St. nightlife & close to Cenote (really good food & coffee!). It has great TV options (Netflix/HBO), & I was able to keep up with Game of Thrones while on vacation :) Sylvia is very nice & friendly & accommodating. I highly recommend staying at her place if you're visiting Austin!

Lovely space; short walk to downtown Austin. The room was cool during 100º days. It's absolutely charming, and has all the amenities one could need, and even more. Can't recommend it enough, especially if you are, like I was, avoiding a hotel for a conference.

Sylvia User ProfileSylvia is a superhost.

I am a licensed Real Estate Broker and owner of Armadillo Realty. I attended The University of Texas at Austin and fell in love with the small town that it was back in 1979; I have been here every since. I love the Art, Music and Film scene here in Austin. There is so much natural beauty to enjoy as well. I especially enjoy Barton Springs Pool in the summertime along with the Zilker Hillside theater productions. SXSW, Austin City Limits Festival and the East Austin Art Studio Tour are among my favorite events. I also enjoy a sunset cruise on my canoe to Congress bridge to see the Mexican Freetail Bats come out for their nightly feeding.
