Located 25 mins from downtown Austin, TX, the house is surrounded by hills and is just a short walking distance from the Austin Lake. Very peaceful and beautiful. You can have your own private room, your own bathroom, a private deck facing east.
The room on the upper level has a comfortable double size futon bed, shelves and a small closet. The bathroom is on the main level of the house next to the living room.
You will share kitchen, living room, laundry room, and beautiful front porch downstairs with the owner of the house. The owner is away at her business from early morning to late evening and will take care to be out of your way and afford you privacy. There are no pets in the house.
The neighborhood is great for walks and relaxation. The nearest shopping (The Galleria) is only a few miles away with great restaurants nearby.

Other Things to Note
Please note that I am not very good with last minute requests. If you do not give me at least 1 - 2 days booking time, chances are your request will be declined.
No smoking in the house please.
If you keep me informed of your schedule, I will give you as much privacy as possible.
Please leave the premises as clean as you find them to the best of your ability.
There is no specified check in or check out time, but it would be helpful if you let me know your expected time of arrival and departure.
Lata was home most of the time we were home, but made sure to stay out of our way (note: we didn't ask her to!) Yet she was very friendly and always available to answer questions.
My boyfriend and I loved sipping wine and coffee out on Lata's second-story porch. The view it offers is amazing.
We will definitely consider booking with Lata in the future.
Lata's home was clean, warm, and welcoming. Deer freely wander outside the house. Everything was as described. Thanks Lata!
Lata was an excellent host for us in Austin. Her house is extremely comforting and she was very welcoming. She is very quiet and let us use the house however we liked. I would stay with Lata in the future.
Lata is a friendly host and her home is located in a great neighborhood close to the lake. Sitting on the patio enjoying the sun was a pleasure.
Clean, comfortable cottage in a quiet neighborhood with plenty of character. Lata was a gracious host; offered good coffee in the morning and provided extra linens and pillows. Morning walk down the hill and around the lake was a perfect start to the day. Highly recommend!
Absolutely gorgeous location, beautiful views and amazing space. Lata was very welcoming, and accommodating to our schedule. Coffee in the porch with stunning views, deer at the doorstep and a lake a short walk down the road. We highly recommend this stay to anyone looking to get away.

I am a single mature woman and the sole occupant of the house. I do not have pets. I am the owner of a retail store in South Austin and am at my store six days of the week all day long till late.
Austin has so much to offer with an amazing culture that involves the best music scene, eclectic nightlife and delicious southern cuisine! Come visit for SXSW and/or ACL and you are sure to have a time to be remembered!
