I'm flexible with check-in and check-out but prefer the typical times 2 pm/11am.
Lock doors, close windows, turn off lights, air conditioning to conserve energy when you leave the house.
Quiet time outdoors is 10 pm unless you invite all the neighbors over for tequila shots too!
Boy, have we got a vacation for you. Don't feel bad about pressing snooze in the Westworld bedroom.
I love sharing my home with friends and strangers alike. I've lived in Austin for 13 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.
