About this listing
Lovely apartment with lots of amenities in charming 1907 house. Mere steps to terrific restaurants, bars, galleries, shopping, and all the best of Central East Austin. Also insanely close to Downtown/Convention Center, SXSW events, Capitol, and UT.
This fully equipped, eclectically decorated suite is part of my house, but it has its own bedroom, bath, small kitchen, and private entrance. It also has a Iot of light, wireless Internet, a brand-new flat-screen TV with lotsa cable, Bose MP3 player speaker, a king-sized bed, a full-sized fold-out couch for extra guests, a third futon for large groups, and a lovely screened-in porch with downtown views, fantastic for working on a laptop, reading, or playing. Gated (not covered) parking is included.
Kitchen is fully appointed with full oven/fridge/dishwasher, as well as toaster, microwave, coffee maker, French press, dishes, etc. Coffee, teas, and basic milk and breakfast products available. Bath towels and basics (including blow dryer) are provided.
*IMPORTANT for those with *severe* allergies to dog dander*: I live on the other side of the house with two dogs. The dogs don't stay in the guest apartment, but I have had one person (in 2+ years of renting) affected by their dander. So if you or someone in your party is extremely sensitive to dog dander, this is probably not the place for you.*
If you have special dietary needs (such as rice or soy milk for coffee/tea), please let me know ahead of time, and I'm glad to accommodate you.
Up to five bicycles of varying quality, along with helmets and locks, are available at no extra charge.
I live in the other part of the house and am happy to be as invisible or as helpful as you desire - I've lived in Austin forever and can give you all sorts of tips for most anything you want to do.
I'm trying to get basic written guides together, but feel free to ask in the meantime.
One more thing: Booking is first-come, first-serve. Regrettably, I cannot hold the space for you or show you the rental prior to booking.
I'm fine with moderate noise, small parties, and so on, but nothing too outrageous. Try not to break stuff. Clean up spills. That sort of thing. If possible, please text me if there are problems or issues.
NO SMOKING INSIDE. I do allow smoking on the porch.
I live in the other side of the house and have two large, friendly dogs, whom you don't have to encounter if you don't want to (we share the laundry room, which is on their way to their dog door, but if you want to do laundry without meeting them, you can let me know ahead of time, and I'll keep them inside my house). I can't guarantee you won't encounter dander in the laundry room, but I'll do my best.
From Mar 3 - 28, 2016 the minimum stay is 5 nights.
A great host and a perfect location. The apartment was spacious with a beautiful kitchen and comfortably slept our group of three. Also, one of the best values I've seen on the airbnb listings for Austin . Highly recommended.
This accommodation is in a wonderful neighborhood; absolutely convenient to anywhere in the city. It's next to I-35 access, though not so close you can hear it.
Cindy was a great communicator. She returned our messages promptly.
The place itself is a cute apartment attached to the main house -- tastefully furnished, comfortable bed, great screened-in porch, and a fully supplied kitchen.
Cindy var en väldigt bra värd! Hon gav bra och tydlig information och boendet och området var bättre än vad vi hade tänkt oss! Hon var mycket hjälpsam då en av våra väskor försvann på flygplatsen!
Beautiful house, perfect location walkable to a number of cool areas of town, exactly as described, very well kitted out with towels, toiletries etc.
My wife and I spent the weekend a Cindy's place and we couldn't have been happier with our experience. The check-in process was smooth and we actually meet Cindy whenever we arrived, she was very friendly and welcoming. The location of this property is fantastic!!! You are close to downtown and all of the action, but you're just on the other side of I-35 so you don't have to deal with all of the hustle and bustle. The world's famous Franklin's Barbecue is just around the corner, so you can't beat that. The place is very well kept, clean, and organized. There is a private driveway to park in, gated, which was very convenient for us. We will definitely look to stay here again in the future if we come back to Austin. You can't beat the price for the location.
Cindy is a wonderful host. She is thorough with detail before arriving, and the space far exceeded our expectations in being awesome. It was absolutely charming with special touches like lotion, toothpaste, and other products in the bathroom. The kitchen is LOVELY. We were so grateful for the coffee for morning porch-sitting time, as the porch is homey and enclosed. We would stay again, and we have already recommended it to family and friends.

About the Host, Cindy
I've lived in Austin forever, and I love to be an ambassador for my chosen hometown. I'm a writer and editor. I have two big, rambunctious dogs whom I adore (and who will not be staying at the house during guest stays). My two passions since childhood have been rock music and journalism, and, with a few tweaks, that's what they still are. I dunno - I'm a liberal arts major who does and likes the things liberal arts majors do. I love delicious and adventurous food, books, great movies, design of all kinds, plants, and traveling, which I don't get to do enough of. I tend to enjoy big, cosmopolitan ciites like New York, Paris, and Rome or beautiful beaches in Mexico or high desert like Marfa and surroundings or northern New Mexico. I'm friendly and goofy. I'm sure you've stopped reading by now.
