Less than one mile to Zilker Park ---stay near everything cool in Austin including Barton Springs Pool. The Peaceful Haven is a spiritual retreat from your busy day or a crash pad at the end of the night. If location, peace, color, comfort and unique art matter you will love my space. This space is behind my house.

WEEKENDS---I require a 2 NIGHT MINIMUM STAY ON WEEKENDS but a one night stay is fine during the week. Requests for same day 1 night weekend stays will be accepted.
READ BELOW.

The space
WE WANT YOU TO BE HAPPY WITH WHAT YOU ARE GETTING SO PLEASE VERIFY THAT YOU HAVE READ THE FULL DESCRIPTION BELOW BEFORE YOU REQUEST TO BOOK. THE PHOTOS SHOW THE ENTIRE SPACE. THERE ARE NO SEPARATE BEDROOMS JUST THE FUTONS FOR SLEEPING.

IMPORTANT SPECIAL NOTES:
IF YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLE BOOKING JUST ONE NIGHT---Send me a message.
WEEKENDS: If a Saturday or Friday is already booked, you can book the other weekend night. Please don't instant book. Confirm with me availability. Thank you.
THE SPACE (A BUILDING BEHIND MY HOUSE)
*Home is a favorite on the Weird homes Austin annual tour.
*Approximately 300 sf
*Two full size futons on the floor, one in the loft, and big fluffy bean bags. Small bathroom with a very tiny shower (won’t be able to bend over in it). Shave you legs before you arrive :)
*Peaceful Haven is a quiet spiritual space. Please respect the spiritual nature of the space and the neighbors.
* Seeking clean quiet guests. This is not a party space but rather a very cool crash pad.
* Holds six but not very comfortable after four.
* Three female cats---Boowee, Pooh, Bonnie (in your space or out---up to you). We clean well and people with allergies have successfully stayed here with no issues.
* Up to two cars can park on the street in front of house.
*There is no kitchen.

THE HOUSE is an active effort to Keep Austin Weird. It is also in the Weird Home Austin Coffee Table Book.

Where you’ll be

Austin, Texas, United States

The neighborhood is filled with homes from as early 1900's to modern remodels. All the homes on my street started as 1960's Ranch style. Today you never know what you will find next door or a block away. Regardless, we are truly a neighborhood that has real neighbors who know each other and walk, bike, drive the hood.
