  • Very nice place. Perfect for 3 guitar teachers in town for workshops all week. We had a great time and were very comfortable. Thanks!

  • Communication with Angel was speedy and consistent. Her home was truly unique yet cozy. I love how the house was also clean and as shown in pictures. I loved all the details in the house. Her home made our experience in Austin even more fun.

  • Great location within walking distance to a number of the places we'd planned on hitting up while in town for the night. Angel was responsive and easy to communicate with. We had a great visit.

  • Angel's Atomic Ranch was perfect!!!! I went with a group of 8 girls for a bachelorette party and it fit all of us comfortably. The house is nicely decorated has a very "Austin" feel to it. It's about 10 minutes from the airport and very close to bars and delicious restaurants. It's also not to far from downtown. Angel was very communicative when I needed assistance. I would definitely stay at the Atomic Ranch again.

  • We had a fine stay in Austin. The house was as expected, though a little closer to the street than it appeared in photos. Everything was clean and ready to go. Angel was immediately responsive to texts. Great little house.

  • Staying at the atomic ranch was perfect! It was clean, the location was great, and we all loved the house. Every single thing we needed was already there. Angel was very accommodating, very prompt in her responses, and an all around excellent house. Would definitely book again!

  • Our weekend stay at the Atomic Ranch was enjoyable and helped make our first visit to Austin a memorable one! Angel was really responsive even while she was out of town. We had ample clean towels and linens and plenty of hot water during our stay. The Wi-Fi, TV, Stereo, and AC all worked really well. One warning: the walls are thin so there's not a lot of noise privacy between rooms We had two adults use the bunk beds during our stay and although there weren't any dire consequences I am not sure if I would tempt fate again. The decor had a healthy dose of Austin weird which definitely added to our experience! The location made everything pretty accessible and also allowed us to ditch the car and walk to some restaurants. El Tacorrido had some amazing breakfast tacos and the horchata and espresso was a morning staple. ABGB is right down the street and it is definitely worth a trip. They have some delicious food and excellent house beers on tap as well as live music to go with it.

  • Booked the Atomic Ranch for a bachelorette party. Angel was super helpful and accommodating! Really fun house, within walking distance from South Congress and South First. The decor really makes it a cool experience also. Highly recommend!

I love sharing my home with friends and strangers alike. I've lived in Austin for 12 years and am happy to point you to spots off the beaten path (Cathedral of Junk) to the sparkling jewels in the middle of the city (Barton Springs). I'm a User-Experience Designer for a Clean Tech/Energy Management start-up. I love the challenge and rewards of conserving in all aspects of life. I enjoy bike riding, brewing and drinking craft beer, gardening, petting my chickens, sewing and DIY projects, seeing live music, traveling, and eating great food. I've only been to 13 countries and 25 states. I most recently spent a few months in Hawaii living off grid on a living farm that is doing reforestation on the Big Island.
