About this listing
DOWNTOWN IS MINUTES AWAY: Only 2 miles to the Metro Rail & immediate access to Mopac and Hwy 183 also means it is a quick boot-scoot to all of the Music Capital of the World's offerings: ACL, 6th Street, SXSW, Barton Springs, F1 Circuit of the Americas, Austin Convention Center, and much more!
Shopping is a breeze! You are less than a mile away from the Domain shopping center which offers impeccable restaurants and luxury shops anchored by Neiman Marcus, Macys and Dillards and walking distance from the newly opened HUGE Whole Foods! You are also only 5 miles away from movie theaters, grocery stores as well as restaurants, & coffee shops.
Are you a visiting medical professional? I am minutes away from Seton Northwest, Austin Diagnostic Clinic and a host of others medical facilities. And, attention IBM interns! I am within walking distance!
About Your Host...I am a recently retired teacher and a fresh Empty Nester (my son just completed his freshman at Texas Tech University).
I am so excited about this new chapter and love the freedom it affords me. I enjoy quiet evenings at home with friends and family, watching tv and having a glass of wine.
My Pets: I have a goofy and incredibly sweet Labradoodle named "Abby" (you can trust her to guard "the kingdom" but never trust her to guard your sandwich!) and I have also "inherited" my sons ferret, "Ron" who has one paw on the Rainbow Bridge and spends most of the day sleeping.
I have lived in this house for over 25 years and would never think of moving! It is a quiet and safe neighborhood and I have fabulous neighbors. You will feel like you are home when staying here!
Your accommodations are equipped with a full size bed and dresser, television (in your room as well as the living area), free, high speed WI-FI, and AT&T Uverse + private tub/shower bathroom, fresh towels & linens, and access to a washer & dryer. You will have access to the kitchen, utensils, dishes, cooking pans, and coffee maker. Deck and gas grill are available as well. You may also use the 2nd refrigerator if you want to buy your own groceries.
Interaction with guests
I treat my airbnb guests like family and would love to share a meal or 2 with you during your stay!
Other things to note
I have 2 rooms that I rent out on airbnb, so it is possible that you may be sharing the bathroom with another guest.
Absolutely no drugs!
No parties. Unless I am included. :-)
You may smoke on the deck, but please use the ash trays. (I will dump them.)
Be respectful & considerate of my neighbors....especially if you are on the deck. Sound does travel!
No extra guests.
Please be respectful of my internet illegal downloads.
Have a wonderful time in Austin!

I am a retired teacher, having taught almost 30 yrs in Austin ISD, & an empty nester. My daughter, Kailynn & her husband Andrew, have recently moved back to the Austin area and my son, William, is a Junior at Texas Tech.
I have also been a performer in the Austin theatre scene for the past 30 years. Currently, I work for Zilker Theatre Productions, a non-profit organization which produces the beloved Zilker Summer Musical each year at the Beverly S. Sheffield Theater in iconic Zilker Park. (One of my pictures was taken on closing night of the 2013 production of Little Shop Of Horrors). If you are here this summer, mark your calendar to come see "Shrek: The Musical"!
I live on the best street in North Austin. I know my neighbors. I helped raise some of their children and they helped raise mine. We watch out for each other and keep track of neighborhood activities.
Bonus Perk: Thinking of moving to Austin? I am a Realtor for Keller Williams Realty & would love to help you find your dream home while you are staying with me! Think of the convenience that will offer!
Airbnbers who stay with me become like family!
Hope to see you soon!
