(More pics soon!

Adorable East Austin bungalow in prime area! Sleeps 12 in comfortable beds (3 double beds, 3 double airbeds. Walk/bike to most SXSW locations.

Very close to bus and train stops, cute cafes, bars, local grocery stores!

The Space

The perfect Austin getaway house! I'm a host that loves to host, so have no doubt that you'll be well taken care of.

Super convenient to everything! Sleeps 12 super-comfortably!

Has wifi, dishwasher, bike rental available, breakfast food provided, coffee provided!

This house is a great crash-pad to all local show venues: explore the vibrant and hip East Sixth street area, or drink and dine on Manor, a walkable strip of great cafes and fabulous restos and bars!

Guest Access

Bedroom 1 - Ensuite bathroom and 2 double beds

Bedroom 2 - double bed (optional double airbed also)
Bedroom 3 - 2 comfy double airbeds
Living Room - Sleeper Couch (only if absolutely necessary. It's a light-coloured microfibre couch, and the living room is small, so I prefer to have everyone sleep in the ample-sized bedrooms if possible)

All linens and towels provided! The house has laundry and a dishwasher.

(photos here are not udated with the new paint, furniture and curtains, but I'll do that soon!)

Interaction with Guests

Friendly but minimal. Just want to make sure you have a great stay! Every amenity is provided - shampoo, conditioner, soap, hair dryer, iron, etc.

I'll likely be there to greet you and show you around (if I can be) and then I'll leave you to enjoy the house and your Austin vacation.

The Neighborhood

This is a totally walkable neigborhood, with 3 taco places, 3 bars, BBQ, 3 cafes, and much, much more all within a 15 minute walk!

Neighborhood is delightfully mixed - Posh new houses mixed with more diverse neighbors and chickens and roosters running accross the street. I love my 'hood and all neighbors are fabulous and friendly.

It's safe. I live here alone as a single woman when not renting it out, and feel as safe as can be.

Austin Daily Press is an AMAZING sandwich cafe close by on MLK at Chicon - just a 5 minute walk away. They deliver too! There's (email hidden) cafe (Bennu) with great coffee and snacks just 3 blocks away.

Also try Wet Whistle for a nice wine selection and small but great grocery store.

The East Side Cafe is a uniquely Austin restaurant that grows their own produce in a huge backyard garden - it's a 15 minute walk away, and has lots of great vegetarian options too.

If meat is more your speed you'll find satisfaction across the road from the East Side Cafe at the famous Hoover's BBQ.

Getting around

There are lots of great places within a 15-minute walk from my house, and there are both bus and train stops close by that will take you into the heart of downtown in 10 minutes (depending on traffic). You can also walk to music venues downtown or on East 6th - it's about 35 minutes, but is a lovely walk!

Other Things to Note

We have all you need! Wifi, washer/dryer, a dishwasher, hair dryers, a fully-stocked kitchen, etc. The house has a very small backyard, but there are some nice sitting areas outside.

    She is an amazing host and will make sure you have everything you need. I will definitely see if her place is available when I'm in Austin next.

  • Our stay was fantastic! The place was gorgeous and our host left us the essentials to make our stay comfortable. We didn't get to meet Olivia unfortunately, but I was in touch with her throughout my stay. She was very responsive, friendly and informative on where to go eat, drink and have a good time. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone!

  • What a great stay my friends and I had at the Teal Ranch! Olivia's perfect hosting started from afar - her emails were warm and friendly, informative and prompt. I felt welcomed from the moment she accepted our reservation - and that continued throughout - she took great care to set up the house exactly how we needed it for the number of guests that were coming. There were even cereals provided and candies on the pillows! I mean, how gracious can you get? The house is adorably decorated and perfectly comfortable for lounging around with friends - particularly soaking up the Austin sunshine in the cute backyard/side porch areas. And it's a perfect distance to all the area attractions we wanted to get to - from delicious BBQ joints, to swimming holes, to downtown music venues. Stay here if you can - I'd recommend it all the way around!
