About this listing
Enjoy privacy and comfort in a lovely bedroom with its own spacious bath. The space comfortably fits two and is centrally located in a charming residential neighborhood close to restaurants and coffee shops. Perfect for SXSW, F1, and visits to UT!
Comfortable, well-appointed bedroom with a spacious private bath in a lovely central neighborhood. This charming 1940s bungalow is minutes away from UT and downtown. Plus, you can walk two blocks to a bus stop that gets you anywhere in central Austin, pronto.
As for food, you'll be minutes (by foot) away from some of Austin's most popular breakfast spots and coffee shops, not to mention the well-known restaurants along Manor Rd. (Salty Sow, East Side Cafe, El Chile, Hoover's, Mi Madre, Vivo's, and more). Whether you're in the mood for a classic breakfast taco or have a hankering for more upscale fare, the perfect culinary solution is within easy reach.
As for the room itself, you'll have a comfy double bed and a great built-in closet off the bathroom. There's wifi, and you'll be welcome to use the fridge, toaster, coffee pot and microwave.
This is a truly comfortable house in a quiet, leafy, residential neighborhood you'll love coming home to. I'm committed to ensuring your stay in Austin is memorable, hassle-free, and utterly enjoyable.
Note: the house has a somewhat ubiquitous cat. Naturally I find him exceptionally delightful, and if you like cats, you will too. Those with cat allergies might, however, wish to look elsewhere.
Enjoy access to your charming, spacious bedroom and bath, the light-filled kitchen, and the warm, cozy living and dining rooms. Feel free to enjoy your morning coffee or a late-night drink on the tree-shaded patio.
Interaction with Guests
I enjoy meeting folks and chatting with them. My guests are typically warm, intelligent, interesting people. I also respect guests' privacy and let them take the lead on any interaction.
This has always been my favorite Austin neighborhood. It's charming and eclectic, safe and interesting to walk in, covered by a dense canopy of trees, and tucked into one of the most vibrant areas of the city. You can easily walk to excellent, up-scale restaurants, cozy coffee shops, Mexican and southwestern eateries, Austin's foremost southern comfort restaurant, a couple of great taco stands, and more. Our beloved Cherrywood Cafe hosts fine musicians and serves up a mighty fine burger. Neighborhood residents are warm and friendly. You'll love this neighborhood!
Less than five minutes by foot from my house, catch a bus to the heart of downtown. This route runs until just after midnight; during SXSW, a special "late night" bus deposits you about 3/4 mile away until around 3:00am. Many omy guests have enjoyed walking to and from downtown, and UT is literally a 10- to 15-minute stroll away.
I don't like smoking inside, of course, but you're welcome to enjoy a puff out on the patio. My cat insists that he be the only resident animal.
About the Host, Nancy
I'm a lifelong writer who's lived in Austin since 1978. I was a freelance business and marketing writer for more than a decade and have written for various local publications. I also worked as a technical writer and editor at IBM. I like to think I know Austin and its quirks, and am fairly up to date on late-breaking developments. My neighborhood is one of the most sought-after close-in 'hoods in the city. I belong to an accomplished writing group (working on a novel), enjoy going to galleries, museums, and restaurants, and am a movie afficianado from way back. I enjoy helping my guests determine how best to explore this great city.
