This is a very nicely kept room in a 2 bedroom apartment in the Barton Hills neighborhood. This listing is for the master bedroom. You will share the rest of the apartment with me and a very friendly cat. He's also perfectly happy to stay in my room, so you don't have to deal with him if you don't want to.
The bedroom has a full sized bed and a walk in closet. I usually prefer 1-2 guests, but I can host a third person, if you are willing to either sleep on the sleeper sofa in the living room or an air mattress on the floor of the bedroom.
The kitchen is fully stocked and I'll leave plenty of coffee and tea for your consumption. The shower and full bathroom are shared with me, but I let guests have the half bath to themselves.
The living room has a record player with a nice selection of LP's. (Mostly jazz and fusion.) The TV has streams Netflix and other programming via a Roku box and there is a secure wireless internet connection that works throughout the space. I also have basic, standard definition cable, in addition to an antenna for over the air HD. The complex has a pool and a coin operated laundry room
Musicians are more than welcome to use any of the musical instruments in the apartment. (Just please be careful with my gear, as it is how I make my living.) The instrument inventory changes, depending on whether I need something for a gig or not. You can definitely count on the Wurly residing in the living room.
It is about a 5 minute walk to Barton Springs Pool and 10-15 to the area of Zilker Park where ACL Festival is held. There are also many restaurants within walking distance along Barton Springs Road. Free parking is available in the complex's lot.
There was a Cap Metro bus stop directly in front of the building, but Austin recently cut service to our neighborhood. Now you need to walk about 10 minutes down to Barton Springs Road and Robert E. Lee to catch the 30 bus. Once there, accessing the rest of Austin is a breeze. It's also about a 25 minute walk to the Whole Foods flagship store downtown, at 6th and Lamar. Barton Hills Market is across the street to handle all your beer, wine, and snack needs.
Depending on your arrival time and our schedules, I may be able to arrange to pick you up at the airport. If that doesn't work out, it's about a $25-30 cab fare. The airport flyer bus or car2go are also options. There is plenty of parking available.

This was a great stay. The room and the kitchen were in good shape, the cat was very friendly and fun to have around, and Owen was great when he was there - which was not a lot.
Owen was very friendly and offered to pick me up/drop me off around downtown if ever I needed it. The apartment seems pretty old, but was in good condition, and the bedroom was a good size, though it's not quite as nicely furnished as in the photos. Owen's cat, Bob, was a pleasant friend to have around, too (he's really friendly and talkative!). All in all a great deal for a place close to downtown.
Owen's place is nice, very well located and comfortable. Owen is very helpful and friendly.
Owen was very friendly and kind guy. Thank you so much and I have really good time in Austin .
Owen was awesome. He happened to be close by the airport and offered us a ride back to the apartment, then dropped us off downtown when he was heading there. Great guy, very comfortable stay. His cat is cool.
Owen is a very nice guy, I really appreciated my stay in his home. He was very friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend his place.
Owen was a great host and very hospitable! He provided what we needed and was very friendly all weekend. He even picked us up from the airport and offered to drop us off when we left. If you're looking for a good place to stay near Zilker Park, I would recommend this one.
Cool guy, super friendly, accommodating on check-in time, quiet place, convenient neighborhood. Had a great time. Highly recommend Owen's place.
Perfect host! Nice guy, easy to deal with, and in an awesome location!
Owen was an excellent host! He set up his room with an air mattress since there were 3 of us ahead of time with freshly washed sheets. He even gave us a heads up about an alternate route to take to his house due to the ACL fest traffic. His place is really close to Zilker Park, killer location for the festival + he let us use a permit to park at his apt complex. Also, he has a rad cat named Bob.
