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. Plus, there's a great bike for your exclusive use, complete with lock and helmet. Your perfect home-away-from-home for SXSW, ACL, UT, and more!

The space

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. You can walk two blocks to a bus stop that gets you anywhere in central Austin, pronto—or bike around the city on a great bike that's here exclusively for guests.

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 Road: East Side Cafe, El Chile, Mi Madre, Dai Due, 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.

Your bedroom features a comfy double bed and a great built-in closet off the en suite 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.

Guest access

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.

The place and host are amazing! Nancy was suuuper helpful and really kind. The place was wonderful. Is ten minutes walking to the University's campus and Nancy's home is located in a very nice and quiet neighborhood. Also a few blocks away you have several places to eat. I can not recommend enough Nancy and her place :D! I had a great time!

Nancy was so helpful with suggestions of what to do and see. She also has good taste, which I appreciate. The room was nice and private and the bathroom had everything you could possibly need if you had forgotten to pack an item. The street is very quiet. A very competent host, a kind person, a great experience.

I had a great time at Nancy's - the bedroom and private bathroom were spotless and very comfortable. Nancy was very accommodating and provided advice and recommendations about the surroundings and Austin in general. Her cat is super friendly.

Nancy is such a great host! She is so quick to respond, very detailed, and attentive to needs and/or possible concerns. She's warm and friendly. Nancy's home is in a cute neighborhood, just minutes away from almost anything you may want/need to go to. She keeps the private bathroom well stocked and clean! Also, a little bonus: she keeps a stock of filtered water.

Nancy was the perfect host, friendly, good conversations, informative about what we would be interested in (must does), and places to eat, etc. her place was clean and user friendly. She asked a few days before we arrived what we have for breakfasts and when we got there she had made sure it was all there! Her house is in a really cool, laid back, quiet, and safe part of Houston 5 minutes from the down town areas. Can not think of one single down side! We do plan to be staying with her when back in Austin.

Nancy's guest room and bathroom are a cozy home-away-from-home for the Austin traveler. It served as a perfect home base to explore the city, and a respite after long, warm days. The private bathroom was very well maintained and spacious, and the shower was excellent! Nancy is an excellent host, very thoughtful and respectful.

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.
