Our home is located just off South Congress and Stassney on a bus line that takes you directly to Downtown. It's an amazing location where you can get to either highway, mopac or I-35, within minutes.
There are four different bus lines a block away that will take you directly to downtown, which is 4.5 miles away. The cost each way is $1.25. The bus takes 27 minutes to get to the heart of downtown because it stops on pretty much every corner. It's a 10 minute drive by car. Parking downtown during SXSW, ACL, or Rot Rally is a nightmare and will surely cost at least $10-$15 per day, so the bus is the best route - especially if you will be enjoying our wonderful southern beverages. Note that traffic during special events will get crazy. We are located 9.8 miles away from the Austin airport (ABIA); which is about a 20 minute drive.
Please go to the CapialMetro website to see the bus routes that serve our neighborhood. Our two closest stops are:
Congress & Little Texas
South 1st and Flournoy
The room has a queen sized Tempurpedic bed. It will probably be the best sleep of your life. The home has a good sized kitchen for your use and ample space in the backyard. If you prefer not to share a bed with your guest, we also have an inflatable mattress in the room. Next to the bedroom you will find the shared bathroom, and across the hall from your private room, you will find our awesome roommate.

We have three small loving chihuahuas, who will bark at first but will quickly just ignore you. They're very friendly if you chose to pet them - but this is not required. :)
Very nice place, good beds, great coffee (beer and water in the fridge), cute dogs, very friendly hosts. Only one drawback: it is not close to town, but there is. Rapid bus taking you there in 25 minutes (the walk is 1 hour and 20 min)
Jennifer and her husband were great hosts. They were incredibly friendly and welcoming. The house was clean, and we slept so well on the VERY COMFORTABLE bed. It was easy to walk to the bus stop and take the bus straight into downtown Austin. We would definitely recommend staying with Jennifer.
La casa di Jennifer si trova a pochi minuti in macchina dal centro della città: la camera è molto pulita e profumata.
Jennifer e suo marito sono stati gentilissimi e simpatici, ottimi padroni di casa!! Anche i tre cagnolini che hanno sono dolcissimi e affettuosi.
Great place. Less than 15 minutes away from downtown ATX. Very safe and close to a bus stop (I drove so I didn't use the bus at all but I did see a bunch of buses coming and going). Very nice house. Friendly hosts. Great bed. There's not a whole lot to do within the walking distance from the house. Plenty of street parking. Safe. I would highly recommend this place, especially if you have a car.
Jennifer and her Husband graciously opened their home to my friend Danielle and I on short notice. It was an overall very hospitable environment; clean house, loving dogs, soft bed, room in the fridge (thank you!).
We had a great stay!
Jennifer was an awesome host. She provided good tips about what's worth checking out in austin and was very accomodating. Her place was always clean and Oreo and Nilla were well behaved. Also, she isn't exaggerating about the bed. I sunk in and just about instantly fell asleep everytime.
Our stay at Jennifer's was fantastic! It is a beautiful home in a nice neighborhood, clean kept, and very comfortable. Kitchen is stocked and always clean, nice backyard and deck, and much room for parking. I also loved their 2 chihuahuas, cute, friendly, and fun =) First time using airbnb, and couldnt have asked for a better host nor place. Thank you so much!
This was my very first time using aribnb and I can not be any happier. Jennifer was always willing to answer any questions before, during and after my stay in her beautiful house. Everything was clean and in order. Her two dogs were lovely and easy going. I am just so happy I was able to find a great host during my stay in Austin. Her location was prime too. Just a straight 5-7 min drive to downtown. Loved it!
Everything about this place was great. Jen had everything we could ask for. Her husband is great as well, both very easy to talk to and helpful. The house is at a perfect location for ACL or anything downtown. Jen thank you forever thing and I hope the next time we come to Austin we can stay at your place again.
P.S. Jena dogs?! Adorable.
I could not imagine a better way to spend my first few days in Austin than this one. Close to everything, comfortable (the other reviews on the bed are spot on; it's the best ever), and with the nicest hosts possible. Highly recommended!
