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. The entire downstairs is tiled. If you are concerned with pet allergies we do not allow any of our animals in the rooms we host.
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

Other Things to Note
If you have questions for us please ask before you book... I'm usually really good about responding back pretty quickly (except middle of night). I would rather you ask us questions than book and be unhappy with your stay.
Also, if you have questions about our house rules, please ask... We do not intend for it to be harsh, we have just learned it is wiser to be honest up front than disappoint in the future. This has been a very fun adventure and we are still learning as we go!!
We considered ourselves to be pretty laid back before starting this adventure but the list below shows that some are more laid back than we are!! We are only listing the following rules because each have occurred and we felt that they needed to be addressed. Please let me know if you have any questions regarding anything! Thank you
-DO NOT BRING PEOPLE INTO OUR HOME THAT WERE NOT PART OF YOUR ORIGINIAL RESERVATION. This includes prostitutes, people you meet in a bar, and any random strangers. It's incredibly rude, unsafe, and disrespectful to the homeowners. You will be immediately made to leave if this should occur.
-Absolutely NO SMOKING inside home. If you smoke outside please dispose of cigarette butts in the appropriate locations.
-Garage is off limits at all times, no exceptions.
-Please leave the TV in the living room alone.
-We do not mind using our washer and dryer but please be courteous of how many times.
-Please be courteous to others sleeping in the house and turn down all noise by 10pm.
-If we are out of town during your stay the back door will be locked.
-Please be courteous of our belongings and rooms that are locked.
-Please, please, do not let our cat or dog outside.
HIGHLY recommended! :)
My husband and I got there late at night, so I did not get to see the host. But we were very satisfied with the neighborhood, the location of the place, as well as the cleanliness and convenience of the place.
Leia and Keri had the whole 2nd floor available for us to use. They had a big TV and nice lazy chairs (although we were too tired to watch anything). The bathroom and the bedroom were clean. The bed was very comfortable; we fell right asleep.
We ran into the host in the morning as we were walking out. She was very friendly, and made us feel very comfortable.
This is our (my husband & me) first AirBnB stay. I had a lot of questions here and there throughout the week before we checked in, but our questions were answered promptly. We were very glad that we had made the decision to stay with Leia & Keri. If we could have the same experience as we had with Leia & Keri, then we would not be staying at the hotel any more. We will be contacting you if we travel to Austin again. Thank you, Leia & Keri!
Leia and Keri were awesome hosts! My best friend and I stayed in the private upstairs and felt very comfortable. It was very clean and just like the listing. Any question we had was met with an immediate response from Keri. BEAUTIFUL neighborhood. Would definitely stay here again!!! Great great great
We arrived in Austin late (11:30pm) and went straight upstairs to a beautiful living room with plenty of comfy seating, a huge flat screen tv, a queen size air mattress, plenty of pillows and blankets, and even a little area to workout! The upstairs bedroom is so nice and super cozy with a big comfy bed, a desk fan, and a little bench to sit or put your stuff on. The bathroom is gorgeous and new with tons of fluffy towels, great smelling soap and even several bottles of water. Best part of all is that we were in Austin for SXSW and this house was a mere 12 minute drive to downtown! Couldn't have found a better deal in all of Austin, and although we never met Leia & Keri, they seem very sweet and professional and the cleaning lady (who was there when we left at 11am) is super helpful and friendly. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
I was in town for SXSW and decided to bring along my younger sister as she was looking into transferring to UT. It was her first AirBnB experience and I'm grateful it was such a positive one for her.
The upstairs suite wasn't available for all the days we were in Austin as this listing is in high demand. Something we expected before booking so we stayed in the downstairs room for the former half of our stay. It was incredibly helpful that they were able to still accommodate us. We then moved upstairs when it became vacant which was a seamless transition. I loved both rooms and was very happy with our stay.
The keyless entry was a nice touch, safe neighborhood, and spacious home.
Feel free to check out my other review of the downstairs room with more insight.
Leia and Keri have my highest recommendation.
Very nice, clean and comfortable accommodations. Great location! Thanks for the hospitality! Hope to stay again when we visit Austin.
My first AirBnB experience, and it exceeded my expectations. Listing is exactly as described. Clean, quiet home. Nice bathroom, fluffy towels, great water pressure. Bed was comfortable (but a little low to the ground, just mentioning for folks who may have trouble with low beds). Household pets are small, surprisingly quiet, and cute as buttons. They were not permitted upstairs thanks to a babygate. The neighborhood is a planned subdivision and *very* quiet. I went for a jog in the nearby park (nice paved loop trail) and saw six deer. I was in town to visit a very ill friend and it was an emotionally draining visit. Leia & Keri were cordial, readily available to answer any questions, but gave me the privacy I needed. If you're looking for a quiet home base while visiting Austin, I would highly recommend staying with them.

My motto is Love, Live, and Laugh. How can you go wrong if you have all three?
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, cycling, or boating.
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 home and this wonderful city. We have been part of the Airbnb community for about two years and have enjoyed every minute of it. We have met travelers from all over and now have friends all over!
Thank you, Leia and Keri
