Looking for a comfortable inexpensive room to stay for a night? A week or more? Join us in our northwest Austin home where the house is tidy, nicely decorated and we are friendly, responsible, courteous hosts. Single or couples welcome. (Only small pets considered on a case by case basis with pet cleaning deposit required.)
Enjoy the large backyard with large beautiful oak trees, deck and bbq grill. Kitchen is well equipped if you like to cook and there is driveway parking.
We have two guest rooms with a shared bath that accommodate 2 people in each room. We make these rooms available *separately* through airbnb. Both rooms have central air/heat, a closet, ceiling fan, Queen-sized bed (linens and pillows provided), television with cable, a dresser, desk, small microwave oven and there's wireless internet throughout the house.
Nearby there are plenty of restaurants, a grocery store and dry cleaners. A nice park is within walking distance with picnic area, tennis/volleyball court and a walking trail. Also about 2.3 miles away is the Alamo Drafthouse movie theatre. Lakeline shopping mall is within a 2 mile radius.
Transportation: There's a busline approximately 1/2 mile away that will take you into Austin. MetroRail station is about 2-1/2 miles from the house if you prefer not to take the bus (or if you have a car and just want to leave it at the train station so you don't have to find parking downtown).
We're non-smokers and prefer non-smokers but if you are and don't mind smoking outside and disposing your cigarettes properly, we will consider. Even though we're busy hosts we enjoy meeting new people. So if you're a friendly individual or at least know to say hello when you see us in the living or kitchen area, we would love to host you!

Wonderful hosts, conveniently located, and beautiful and comfortable place! Elizabeth and David made my first airbnb stay one to remember - and even when my parents decided last minute to visit and needed a room, they were able to stay in my place. Very professional, friendly, and flexible - would highly recommend!!
This was my first time using Airbnb and Elizabeth and David were great hosts! I just moved to Austin and stayed with them for a little over a week while looking for an apartment. They are very warm and welcoming and were very helpful with suggestions on local eateries, places to visit, etc. Their neighborhood was quiet and safe and I had my own little parking spot which was nice. They are a wonderful people and just after talking with them a bit I felt like I've known them for years. :) I'm so happy I chose to stay with during my transition to this new city.
Elizabeth and David were so welcoming! We used their room for a 2-week stay while we were looking for a new apartment. Their house is beautiful, the bed was so comfortable, and the neighborhood is great for walking around, too. Our hosts provided a microwave, television, and even some snacks in our room, as well as the opportunity to use the fridge and washer/dryer. They also invited us to eat with them and friends one night, and we made food for them one night, too. Overall, i would highly recommend Elizabeth and David's place to stay, to anyone who asks!
WONDERFUL stay! Loved her dog so much!
Staying here ranks among the best airbnb experiences I've had to date. The hosts were incredibly accommodating; the room was excellent; the amenities, solid. Highly recommended.
Elizabeth and David were absolutely incredible hosts!! We had a long driving day from Big Bend National Park to Austin and got out of the park much later than we meant to, and upon finding out we'd be getting into Austin around dinner time Elizabeth offered to make us dinner! After two days of camping and a long driving day, I can't describe how grateful we were to be offered hot, home-cooked food. We had an amazing meal with her and David and it was a real treat getting to know them. They were both incredibly nice, friendly, accommodating and our room was fully stocked with amenities and very comfortable. I wish we'd had more time to stay with them. If you're in the Austin area, don't pass them up!! We sincerely hope to visit them again!
What a wonderful stay! Elizabeth and David were the perfect hosts. This was my first airbnb experience and it was better than expected. The room had everything I could have wanted and lots of little touches to make my experience more enjoyable. The room was decorated very nicely as was the bathroom. I am planning to return to Austin and will hopefully be able to stay here again.
This was way better than staying in a hotel! Elizabeth thought of everything, from an extra microwave and a little bar of soap in the bathroom to leaving some snacks in our room. The bed was comfortable and everything was super clean. We got to use their kitchen to make dinner, something we'd missed on the road. I also went for a nice run in their neighborhood—it was really easy to navigate and there was a lot of flat space for running. I got in 4+ miles, and could have easily gone further without getting lost.
Elizabeth and David were great hosts! Very friendly people with a comfortable, welcoming home. I enjoyed my stay there and would stay again if I am ever in Austin.
My mom and I had a lovely stay at Elizabeth's. If was a brief stay, but all positive. The home is easy to find, and the space is clean and private. Elizabeth was very helpful and generous, making sure we had everything we needed. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for an affordable room in the Austin area, or (like us) needing a room in North Austin.
