**I stay in the house (it's a 4 bedroom) & help keep things clean & flowing smoothly. I can play host or I can stay out of your way!
the Solar Sanctuary was built in 2004 on land purchased by my great-grandfather in 1930! it's a 4-star green builder home w/ solar panels (so no worries about running the a/c in the Texas heat!) & large open spaces w/ bamboo floors & high ceilings, no-VOC paint, HEPA-type filters on both a/c units & return air vents in every room.
my home is a magical sanctuary!! you also couldn't ask for a better location...you can see downtown from the front sidewalk! there are amazing food trailers across the street & many cool shops & restaurants on S. 1st St., all within walking distance. Bouldin Creek runs through my backyard & there is a short trail through the woods on the other side. it's fun just to walk around & look at the eclectic mix of housing styles in my area. 78704 is the best!! there is ambient street noise (worse during the day, usually quiet at night), so you might want earplugs if you are a sensitive sleeper.
I have full size real beds in the 2 guest rooms. there is a massage room that can become a private room if someone wants to sleep on a queen size air mattress. I have many nice pillow top air mattresses if you want to put more people in the house...there is plenty of space!
easy walk down the hill to Auditorium Shores (Reggae Fest, FunFunFun Fest & more), the hike & bike trail & the Long Performing Arts Center...continue across the S. 1st St. bridge & you are downtown! quick walk to the SOCO shopping district full of unique shops, restaurants & the legendary Continental Club. longer but pleasant walk to Zilker Park (where ACL Festival is held), the Botanical Gardens, & Barton Springs Pool (one of the best things about Austin, a lovely natural springs pool w/ 68 degree water!) I will offer rides when I can & I love to give advice on places to hangout & things to do & see! I love to be a host to travelers, but I can also stay out of your way, whichever you prefer!
