**Room not available for SXSW and other big events, but do spend extended time away from house from time to time, so house would be yours for off peak event times.***
High ceiling'd room in back of home smack dab in 78704. Spacious closet, big chair with Tv/ Cable/ HBO/ DVD. Ceiling fan, and additional fan if needed.
King bed, soft, most comfortable bed in the county. : )
Adjacent is large master bath with natural light, walk in shower, 2 sinks and toilet.
Private door to back deck/ back yard.
Kitchen and rest of the house is open, loft like, lots of light. Two open work spaces, a TV nook with 56" HDTV with cable/HBO/DVD, reading area with view to back yard.
Owner stays in front of house with own bath and two bedrooms.
Fenced back yard for a dog.
Charlie, my yellow lab, is the greatest dog in the universe, chill, friendly, selfless and concerned about everyone...he just came that way. Cesar Milan would be proud. He gets along with other dogs well, but is mostly indifferent.
Easy going house, no fuss, come and go as you please. Perfect for a couple. Quiet, chill yet close to all the fun stuff.
House is in the Dawson Neighborhood, in Austin's beloved 78704-ever zip code. Bus stop is a 30 second walk around the corner.
$1 gets you downtown in eight minutes, including stops.
Walk to two awesome coffee shops, two dive bars, St. Edward's campus with it's rockin' view of downtown, and Torchy's Tacos is around the corner - innovative tacos, rated the best in town every year by the Austin Chronicle.
Am a working writer, so around the house often, but try to get out as much as possible. Guests should feel comfortable coming and going as they please.
Have hosted a few events here! Dinner parties, film viewing parties, tv nights for GAME OF THE THRONES and DOWNTON ABBEY, etc., let me know if you have something in mind, pretty open as long as it's not raucous, and am fine leaving the house while you entertain your guests.

Highly recommended. Larry is a kind, funny and smart guy who cares about his guests much more than a usual b&b host. A well-lit bungalow holding a relaxing guest room plus large bath, located in a calm neighborhood, in short distance to most places of interest in Austin.
Larry was a great host! His place has a lot of great natural light and was very comfortable and quiet to stay in. It's a block away from the bus line which is only a 10-15 minute, one dollar trip into downtown Austin. Perfect if you are traveling without a car. Charlie (the dog) was very welcoming and nice to have lounging around.
Larry is very knowledgable and a great resource to chat with about places to eat or drink at in the area. (San Jose Hotel, Torchy's Tacos (around the corner), etc.)
Thanks again, Larry!
Larry was a gracious, kind and communicative host, and the room was super comfortable - felt immediately relaxed when I got there. House is amazing and peaceful, and location is just right - just a short jaunt to wherever you want to be in Austin. Can't say much else - a great little stay in ATX.
