The Space

Our charming 3 bd/1.5 ba midcentury home is nestled in the quiet Sherwood Oaks neighborhood in 78704. Located across from historic St. Edward's University, our home is just over a mile south of the popular SoCo shopping and restaurant district, and a short 3 mi cab ride into the heart of downtown Austin. Also within biking distance are the scenic Auditorium Shores running/biking trails and dog park (2.5 mi), Zilker Park, and Barton Springs Pool (4 mi). We offer his and hers bikes for your use during your stay. There is free street parking in front of our house, and if you'd rather not drive or bike, our home is also within walking distance of several area bus stops.

Your private room has a full size bed, dresser and half of a closet for your use. You have access to a private half bath and a shared shower/tub and full use of all the common spaces including the kitchen, living, TV, laundry, office, and backyard/patio spaces. If traveling with extra guests or children, we have one additional guest room with a twin size daybed and can also provide a twin size air mattress if needed. There will be an additional charge for parties over two of $25/night per person.

We will provide light breakfast items during your stay: eggs, bread, coffee/tea during the week and crepes/french toast on weekends. There is also a Keurig coffee maker available for your use anytime.

We are new home owners and love hosting guests in our home! We share our home with three sweet and active pups who are always available for love and cuddles. We look forward to having you stay with us during your next visit to Austin!

  • I visited for one month and felt very comfortable. The hosts were sincere. I hope to return again. Thank you

  • Dobi and Jill were gracious, helpful, and welcoming hosts. They are also a lovely and interesting couple to get to know. The accommodations were very clean, comfortable and cheery. It was nice to have a half bath and a full shared bath. Their screened-in back porch had a nice breeze for lounging. Their dogs were also very sweet. As this was my first visit to Austin, their quiet, tree lined neighborhood was an easy 2 block walk to bus stops to Downtown and beyond. Also nearby, is an easy walk to the So Co district for shops and restaurants. I highly recommend a stay at Dobi and Jill's St. Edwards' Charmer!

  • Dobi and Jill's house was absolutely beautiful. The rooms were incredibly clean, well kept, colorful, and truly charming. The place was a short walk to South Congress, and they had some great recommendations for places to visit in Austin. Loved this AirBnB experience, and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the city!

  • Dobi and Jill were super sweet and accommodating when my friend and I arrived. Most importantly they were communicative while booking and answered any questions we had about Austin or their place when we were there. Their house was decorated in a fun way and clean and organized - loved it! We felt at home while there.

  • Perfect hosts, made my move to Texas that much easier. Easy to talk to and they provided a clean and homey place that helped me transition after the move.

    Would definitely recommend their charmer to my friends :)

Dobi drove us to the airport for our departure. The location is convenient and rooms were clean and spacious. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at St. Ed's Charmer. A great experience!

  • Excellent accommodations, friendly hosts, and easy access to S. Congress activities. Dobi and Jill had tons of suggestions for places I could visit, and their dogs were good company. Can't wait to make a return trip!

  • We went to Austin for ACL festival. The 3rd day was canceled due to the weather. Thanks to Jill & Dobi we had a great day wandering around Austin. They both were so kind and friendly. We had a great time with them and their friends. Also, you will love the three dogs; they're very friendly & adorable :D

We are new homeowners and new to Airbnb, so we're looking forward to hosting our first guests in our new home. We love our neighborhood and enjoy walking to the nearby restaurants and shops on S. Congress. We have three dogs whom we adore, a Chiweenie/Minpin mix named Busa, a Boxer named Tyson, and a fluffy Shepherd/Shih tzu mix named Molly. We both work full-time during the week, but would love to spend time showing our guests around Austin in the evenings and weekends. Dobrisa is fluent in both Japanese and Croatian and I speak some basic French. We're both very easy going people who enjoy entertaining. We love good food and good company and are eager to meet new people.
