Description

The Space

Welcome to the "Birdhouse" a beautiful, quiet, light-filled studio located under large Live Oak trees in our backyard.

Enjoy the weather with two outdoor areas: a shady limestone patio with comfortable seating and a sunny gravel patio.

Inside the open-plan first floor is 350 square feet and includes:

A bed nook with a very comfortable queen bed outfitted with clean crisp sheeting.

A fully stocked kitchenette, with two burner gas cooktop, under-counter fridge, convection microwave, and all the cooking supplies needed to make everything from a great cup of coffee in the morning to a cozy dinner.

A well appointed bathroom with over-sized shower (supplied with endless hot water thanks to the tank-less water heater), fluffy towels, and hairdryer.

A lovely seating area with a cozy window seat.

Off street parking, for one car; Wifi; and iPod dock are also provided.

We are located approximately 2 miles south of downtown in-between South First and South Congress convenient to public transportation.

Rate includes 15% state and local hotel taxes for stays shorter than 30 days. (City of Austin STR License # 122381).

NOTE: Although we love dogs, and other pets, (including our own sweet dog) we do not accept them as guests.

Getting Around

We are located within a short walk of restaurants, coffee shops, and shopping.

The bus stop is a 4 minute walk away, which will take you downtown and beyond with no transfers. The bus downtown takes around 15 minutes or you can drive to downtown in 5-7 minutes.

All of central Austin in within close driving distance of the house.

The airport is a short 15 minute drive.
