About this listing
My home is located in the coveted 78704 area of South Austin, along the South Congress (SoCo) shopping and entertainment strip. You can easily walk to the 24 hour grocery store, four different banks/atms, a pharmacy, restaurants, shops, bars, coffee shops, bus stops, a nature preserve, a public pool, parks and more. Borrow a couple of my bikes and you'll be downtown in five minutes or most anywhere you want to be in Austin in less than twenty. The heart of SoCo is 1 mile away, Auditorium Shores is 2 miles away, Zilker Park/Barton Springs is 3 miles away and the airport is only a 15 minute drive. This is the side of the duplex I live in and it includes wifi, central air, full kitchen, queen bed, queen aerobed, off-street parking, screen patio, front balcony, vaulted ceilings, solar panels, rainwater collection, big backyard and a quiet neighborhood where you won't have to fight for a parking spot. the bedroom has a nice new queen mattress and there is a couch to crash on plus a queen aerobed to inflate in the living room.
You are welcome to use all the normal stuff and can have access to a couple bikes if you ask nicely.
I prefer to meet all my guests to welcome them to town and show them the house.
Convenience! Walk to everything you'll need while you're here and bike/bus to the rest of what people do in Austin. I'm a 2 mile straight shot down to the Congress bridge (where the bats are) and that's pretty much the center of all activity.
The 1, 101 and rapid transit bus stops are all just a block away or you can easily bike around. A taxi ride to/from downtown or east is under $10. Barton Springs Pool and Zilker Park are 3 miles away, Auditorium Shores is 2 miles. You won't have trouble getting around without a car. Lots of bars, restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques, thrift stores, etc. There's a nature preserve just down the street to hike around in and walking the St Edwards campus is always nice.
The mandatory 15% city hotel tax is included in the price for all reservations under 30 days. If you're looking to stay longer than a month then we can talk about other issues or concerns for making your stay here comfortable and easy.

driveway, 2 bikes, front balcony, back patio, backyard, front porch, all the normal inside stuff
You can smoke outside.
There is no cleaning fee because I expect you'll clean up before you leave. It's cheaper for both of us like that. I have a couple bikes you can borrow but if you break or lose something I'd appreciate if you compensate me for it.
About the Host, Garret
I'm a pretty laid back guy who likes to spend time outdoors so if you'd like to stay at my place then i'll just go camping - it works out for everyone! :)
