The Space

You will love the quaintness of this very spacious and very charming 1 bedroom / 1 bath / 750sq. ft. home. There is a Queen size bed in the bedroom and a Serta sleeper sofa (Pottery Barn) in the living room. It has hardwood floors throughout, except in the bath. It is decorated with antiques and contemporary pieces. And, there will be snacks in the refrigerator when you arrive! There is also an upright grand piano for all you piano enthusiasts!

This beautifully landscaped central Austin home boasts organically maintained gardens with over 40 herbs and a few vegetables for guests to clip when preparing meals in this gourmet kitchen. The grounds also have an Italian fountain that lulls you as you sit outside drinking your beverage of choice and enjoying outdoor showers if you would like! You have a large balcony out your front door with sunset views.

This very popular neighborhood is tree lined, well established, and very quiet. There is a wonderful grocery/market, Minimax, at the end of the street where there is also The Little Deli, a well known lunch and dinner haunt.

The light rail is about a mile away. The bus stops are just 2 or 3 blocks away as well. This centrally located home takes 12 minutes to get to The Hike and Bike Trail and 15 minutes to get downtown. There are also many restaurants to choose from in a very small radius, as this area has become known for its many eating establishments.

Guest Access

The entire backyard and outdoor shower.

Interaction with Guests

As much or as little as you want. I'm easy going and have that approach with my guests.

The Neighborhood

I love the huge trees, the peacefulness, and the activity level of my neighbors out walking, biking, running, etc.

Getting Around

There is a light rail station less than a mile away and there are express buses to downtown. Excellent public transportation to anywhere you need to go! There are cruiser bikes available for cruising the neighborhood.

Other Things to Note

I have temporarily removed my 2 night minimum booking policy. I will consider a 1 night booking on a case by case basis, and really welcome that! There are just times it is not possible due to my resolve to provide a quality place and experience to my guests!

House Rules

The only rules I have are to have lots of fun and enjoy life while you are here. I do not allow smoking inside, but there is a picnic table with an ashtray available. Smokers must take care of cleaning up any cigarettes, etc. And please leave things as you found them as much as is reasonable, like when you visit your grandmother's house!
