This beautiful bungalow style craftsman home is a 3-1 Pier-Beam Construction from the early 1960's nestled into a lush valley of green space in the heart of Austin just 3 miles from UT campus and the 6th Street Entertainment District. Featuring original hardwood floors, giant windows and operated on solar power, the home is an open and airy space to relax, recollect or start out on your Austin journey. When you’re ready to get out, you’ll be 1 minute from MLK---the quickest route to Downtown Austin and I-35. Those without vehicles can catch a bus right in front of the house or, enjoy cab service from our preferred driver list. Austin is very bike friendly, so if you enjoy riding, you can buy/rent a bike from the Austin Yellow Project located just 2 blocks from the house or, bring your own.

If you enjoy gardening, you are welcome to pitch in on our all organic garden on the back property---or, visit any number of nearby farmer's markets. As a guest, you can enjoy the use of the back deck, a favorite spot. If this is your first visit to Austin, let me recommend the best kept secrets of each season from festivals and farmers markets, to new bistros, eateries and exhibits. For the adventurous, enjoy a selection of maps, books, tourist guides and periodicals and blaze your own trail. If you've been to Austin before and are ready to ditch the 6th Street scene, let me recommend the real Austin; high brow and low riding, weird and wonderful, serene and surreal. For the getaway set, grab a towel and catch some sun or, read a book and sip margaritas on the back porch.

Andrea was great to work with. She has a quaint modest home with rooms at a fair price....and that was exactly what I needed. Andrea has given a lot of thought to making things 'work' well for her bnb visitors. She was very pleasant, helpful and thoughtful. I would not hesitate to stay with her again or recommend that others stay there.
This was my first time using AirBnb (and first time in Austin!) and it was such a lovely experience. I arrived fairly late at night, and was greeted by Andrea, a friend of hers, and some great tunes coming from the stereo. Andrea was very friendly, helpful, relaxed, and made me feel right at home away from home. A great perk was the bus stop in front of the house- I must have used it at least 3 times each day I was there and was able to get around town very easily. Thank you Andrea!
Andrea is a fabulous, accommodating host! She went out of her way to make me feel comfortable in her home and in Austin, and is a terrifically friendly lady. I would highly recommend a stay with Andrea to anyone looking for good conversation and a pleasant place to come back to at the end of the day! Thanks, Andrea!
Andrea is a lovely person, gentle and easy to go along with. She really makes her guests confortable. She is well educated, open minded and I felt happy to talk to her. It is nice to stay in her place.
Thanks for your kindness.
I had another airbnb host cancel on me, last minute, and found one of Andrea's two rooms, last minute, for a great price. She took the time to give me a basic orientation to the house, which was kept clean and nicely-appointed. Andrea was courteous while still giving people space to get things done.
Andrea is a great host and the house is fantastic! I was greeted with a beer and good conversation, and I don't think you can ask for anything more than that. The dog and cat (I am terrible with names) are also amazing and friendly and I enjoyed spending time with them as well. Andrea hooked me up with some great local recommendations for food and music (go to the Sahara Lounge!) and helped me get a sense of Austin, which I really appreciated. Overall, this was a great place from which to explore Austin, and Andrea was the best host I could have hoped for. Highly recommended!
