The Space

Vacation Rental/ Nightly Rental

I am renting the upstairs portion of my home.

This home is located minutes from I35 (Slaughter Exit) and approximately 10-15 minutes from Circuit of the Americas. (We do require a 2 night minimum during F1 weekend) Easy access to the tollroad. Also minutes from the downtown excitement!

There is a bus stop walking distance from the home.

The home includes one queen size bed, access to full kitchen, linens, large flat screen tv (upstairs), wireless internet, and workout equipment.

Includes very private upstairs retreat that includes Queen bed, full bathroom, large TV, workout equipt.

If needing more places to sleep?? I have a twin size air mattress with plenty of room to set it up. ($25/person after the first 2 people) max 5 people upstairs

I also rent out my downstairs spare bedroom. See other listing.

Home is handicap accessible. There are ramps entering the home in front and to the back yard. Large ADA door making wheelchairs easy to enter and exit.

The neighborhood is a cozy neighborhood located just off S.1st St. in S. Austin.

Walking distance to park with playground and walking trails.

Lots of shopping nearby:

I have lived in Austin for 15 years and can assist in any way with suggestions on what to do and where to go while here.

Home owners will most likely be present when renting these rooms. We do own dogs and one cat. If you think there will be problems with the animals let me know I'm sure we can work out.

We also take care of our handicap sister who will most likely be in home as well.

We will give you as much privacy as you wish. We both work weird schedules so we will be in and out of home.

I am new to Airbnb so if you would like references personal (friends) and/or professional (Sheriff's office) don't hesitate to ask. With that being said, yes, we are law enforcement!!

We do not confirm on guests who have not been verified through Airbnb.

Thank you for looking!! Leia

  • I went for July 4th weekend and really only slept/showered at the house. Nevertheless, the home is beautiful, very clean, and "homey." I believe Leia and Keri were out of town, so the pool was locked. This wasn't a problem for me, but make sure they are in town in case you plan on swimming during your stay. Also, Leia and Keri are EXCELLENT communicators, and your question will be answered "within 24 hrs" but really within the next hour or so. This was great since I tend to think of things last minute.

    I would recommend this house to anyone visiting Austin. Great neighborhood and only minutes from downtown (which is also why I came into town). I would definitely stay at this house again! :)

  • Leia & Keri were great hosts and immediately made us feel completely welcome. They have a beautiful & clean home with an amazing pool. I would highly recommend them. I can't wait to plan our next stay with them.

  • We had a great stay here in Austin. The house was very clean and beautifully decorated. We also really enjoyed the pool and the local community. We had an awesome time and I would stay again.

  • I enjoyed my stay. I wasn't there much due to attending a conference. Loved the pool! Beautiful home.

  • Thoughtful and attentive hosts. A very clean and quiet space to ourselves for our overnight stay. Although we have sensitivity to dogs and cats we had no symptoms here.

  • Great place, would stay there again!

  • Patricia and I had a wonderful stay at the Oasis. The space is large, more like a suite than a regular room. Everything was spotless and Leia was there to answer questions. The bathroom is very modern and clean. We'll come back again for sure.

  • We had a great stay in Leia and Keri's place. Everything was comfortable, they are very easy-going people and we were feeling like at home.

    The room is clean, spacious upstairs, we like the yard and their Texas style decoration a lot!

    Highly recommended.

  • We had a great stay with Leia, Keri and Keri's lovely sister; we only wish we had had more time to spend getting to know each of them better. The house is just as described, if not better. The private upstairs is truly an oasis, and everything was immaculately clean. Getting to and from the house from/to Austin and its environs was a breeze. If our travels ever take us back to Austin, we will definitely hope to be return guests!

  • Staying with Keri and Leia and Brenda was a homey experience for us! The girls are welcoming and easy going, and we are cat and dog people so we loved their sweet pups and affectionate kitty. The accommodations are very comfortable, spacious and private and Keri and Leia are very respectful of their guests privacy. During our week long stay, a couple other guests came and went in the downstairs bedroom and I was impressed with how well Leia was keeping up on making sure everything was clean and ready. We also enjoyed meeting new people. These girls run a regular boarding house! We loved their house and neighborhood which is very close to a great park for running and exploring. It honestly felt like a home away from home rather than a rented room. And we would stay again without qualms. Thanks again Keri and Leia for putting up with us for so long!!

My motto is Love, Live, and Laugh. I figure how can you go wrong if you have all three of those? My partner and I have lived in Austin for about 15 years. We really enjoy the outdoors, we tend to be doing anything outdoors on our day's off including: kayaking, hiking, camping, or boating. We both own motorcycles and will take off in the morning and cruise the Hill Country looking for new destinations. We commonly end up in the nearby beautiful Hill Country wine area going from one winery to the next doing tastings. I'm an avid book reader and neat freak. While my partner tends to be the more "laid back" type! I hope you give us a chance to earn your trust and get to enjoy our wonderful home and this wonderful city we call home. Thank you, Leia and Keri
