Welcome to my lovely oasis in the center of the eclectic 78704 neighborhood!

The Sparrow House is thoughtfully designed, beautiful, bright and comfortable. My goal was to create a space as well thought out and lovely as the boutique hotels that I can't get enough of, but with the added privacy, spacious kitchen, and plentiful outdoor space that a real home provides! I love sharing my home and it has been a joy thinking of every detail to make your stay happy and comfy! The location allows you to enjoy all of what Austin is known for and have private space to relax when you want some time to decompress.

There are two bedrooms with queen size beds and one bedroom with a twin daybed that will sleep one comfortably. That room also contains a gorgeous marble top desk perfect for a working vacation. There is also a very comfortable queen sized air mattress and sofa. I also offer free WiFi.

The fantastic marble spa shower with a rain fall shower and horizontal jets is an incredible way to wake up in the morning! I provide shampoo, conditioner and body wash and fluffy cotton towels.

The living room is open to the kitchen and provides a comfortable space to relax. There are ample windows and skylights, which give lovely views of the oak trees and allow sunlight to shower in throughout the day. I provide complimentary access to thousands of movies on Netflix and television on HuluPlus via the Roku device. I also offer a free Spotify account. Bring your iPod or iPhone to dock at the integrated stereo.

The dining room has large windows which look out onto the backyard and deck. It's a perfect room for a relaxed dinner or a poker game.

The Sparrow House is particularly special because of its hundred year old city protected heritage Live Oaks, Pecan trees, Magnolia tree, a Redbud tree and two of the tallest Mount Laurels in the city.
The back deck has a covered outdoor living area with a dining table, lounge chairs and a swing. It's a perfect spot for an event or to host a dinner party. There is also a great front entry courtyard where you can sit back and have a beer or chill on the hammock. Between the 2 areas, there is approximately 600 square feet of patio/deck space with two outdoor dining tables and a bonus outdoor living room!

Sparrow House is close to just about everything great about Austin. Downtown is maybe 3 miles away, or a $10 cab ride weekend nights. South Lamar, South Congress and South First Street all have a great variety of food, either in a trailer or brick and mortar. There are great neighborhood bars nearby. If physical and mental health are more important, you are a just a nice 20 minute stroll from Lady Bird Lake and Hike and Bike Trail.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Ayn was a very responsive, accomodating and kind host. Our 1st reservation was cancelled on us and we are so happy it was because this was a great place for us! Her Sparrow House is clean, funky and cozy. This is a prime location, central to everything in town. Our son was getting married and we hosted a Family Dessert Party Wedding Eve here. This house, with it's cute backyard patio, was the perfect spot to meet all our new family members! There is no parking on this busy street here, so if you have more than 2 cars, guests will need to park a block or 2 away. We highly recommend staying here!

  • My friends and I stayed at Ayn's to celebrate my friend's upcoming marriage. It was an amazing trip. Ayn's home is beautiful - she clearly has great taste. The checkin process was smooth, the house was in a great location, we had a rental car and were minutes from everywhere we wanted to be (downtown, Barton Springs, South Congress). The backyard is an absolute dream and we spent many evenings just relaxing and enjoying the setting. Also, the shower is so much more than a shower, its like a SPA! Thank you so much!

  • I stayed at the Sparrow House for about five weeks and my experience was nothing short of amazing! The house quickly felt like home, comfortable yet sophisticated with gorgeous interior design running through every inch of the home. The backyard is reason enough to stay! It is a perfect place to relax, enjoy a meal, or host a few friends. Ayn was the perfect host. She was always incredibly responsive to my needs. We had a wind storm that did some small damage to the backyard and Ayn made sure it was repaired and cleaned up within a couple short days. The location is great; I felt like I was close to everything in town. I will definitely be returning to the Sparrow House if I ever find myself in Austin again! Thanks so much for your hospitality Ayn!
