The Space

The guest bedroom of this second story duplex overlooks the bustling 11th Street corridor and its shops, cafes, and restaurants, but feels remarkably peaceful and detached from all the hubbub outside. The full-size bed sports a memory foam pillow top mattress. The shared spaces of the house are the bathroom, kitchen, dining room, living room, and expansive front porch from which you can sip a cocktail and watch the sun set over the Capitol.

Within easy walking/biking distance are the following: Franklin Barbecue, the East Side Kings food trailer at the Liberty Bar, the Blanton Museum of Art on the UT Campus, Trailer Space (record store), the George Washington Carver museum and library, the lovely and historic French Legation, Beerland, the Alamo Drafthouse at the Ritz, and countless other places to feed and amuse yourself. I have a single-speed Raleigh bicycle available for your use, but if you decide to bring a car, which you will most likely not need in this area, there is a dedicated parking space conveniently situated underneath a large shade tree. Public transportation in the area includes Capital Metro buses 2, 4, 6, 21, and 22, the UT Shuttle, and light rail at Plaza Saltillo.

Please note that there is a well-tempered five-year-old cat who resides in this home. When he is not asleep on the sofa, he is typically outside birdwatching.

Guest Access

Guests will have access to all common areas of the house: living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom, and front porch.

Interaction with Guests

Since guests will be sharing our home with us during their stay, there will inevitably be some interaction. We are always happy to offer recommendations for local restaurants and attractions.

The Neighborhood

Our neighborhood is very central. It's easy to walk or bike to many places. Anything you might possibly need (pharmacy, corner store, yoga studio, cafes, pizza, etc.) is within a stone's throw.

Getting Around

There are two bus stops on our street as well as two bike share kiosks.
