About this listing
Bright and airy, peaceful and cozy, full of light and plenty of artisan touches. I truly love my home and I love sharing its unique beauty with others.
I have two bedrooms, a small office, two full bathrooms, as well as two of the most nap-friendly couches in Austin. It's an open plan house with stained concrete floors, a gorgeous living and dining area, a custom concrete bar, and a sweet well furnished kitchen.
The master bedroom has a queen-sized eco memory mattress. The guest suite has a very comfortable full bed. If you have more than four people in your party then I can offer you an air mattress and/or a couple of comfy couches to sleep on as well. It's best suited for two people or two couples though.
I do have WIFI but no television on the premises to distract you from the awesomeness that is Austin.
I am looking forward to renting out the entire house out for XMAS/NYE, ACL, SXSW, and F1 weekends but I'm also open to hosting someone in just my guest bedroom for short stays as well. That listing is located here: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/1727257 if you are interested in that option.
Getting to Zilker Park can be a breeze if you want to ride the trail and avoid driving during the ACL weekend traffic madness.
During SXSW you will realize that you are in the heart of all the action. I'm located right off of Chicon between charming East 11th St. and very happening East 6th St. The whole east side comes alive during SXSW. You would be able to walk, bike, or bus to downtown in mere minutes...
My street is quite quiet and my neighbors are pretty friendly. There are tons of cool places within walking distance. Paul Qui's newest spot is just a few blocks away! Blue Dahlia, Quickie Pickie, and Franklin's BBQ is just down 11th. Tamale House East, bars and food trucks galore are right down 6th. East Side Pies delivers tasty pizza if you want to stay in ;)
Please contact me if this sounds like a good fit for your needs.
Interaction with Guests
I love the people that Airbnb has brought into my life. Stories, laughter, and adventures are more than likely. I will recommend endless cool places and events around town to you (if you so wish) and if I'm in town I will most likely invite you to join me to see music or art shows, go swimming at the greenbelt, or to eat & drink at one of the many fabulous places in my hood. I am also quite happy to leave you to explore Austin on your own (if you so wish!)
East Austin is eclectic, artsy, colorful, happening, and becoming increasingly hip(ster!) I LOVE being able to walk or bike around to so many amazing places.
It's Texas so it's always more convenient to have your own car. I do have street parking available.
The airport is about fifteen minutes from my house.
There is a Metrobus stop right down the block from my house that will take you pretty much anywhere you might wanna go...UT, Barton Springs, SOCO, and downtown.
You can even rent sweet bikes from my friend Lee's shop down the street.
Other Things to Note
I am registered with the city and your 15% hotel occupancy tax is included in the total already.
Smoking is only allowed outside. I have two porches and a big backyard with a firepit ;) No pets please.
