Sunny little bedroom in south Austin home. There's an empty dresser and room in the closet so you can settle in. The shared living area has an HD TV with 'premium' cable and Roku streaming. There are two great 'taco' restaurants and a nice wine and texas tapas place a few blocks away. We are three short blocks from the nearest bus stop with a 7 min. ride to Auditorium Shores and 10 min. to downtown and the Convention Center. We're also 9 blocks from S Congress bus with a 5 min. ride to all the SOCO attractions. This full acre property has WiFi, off street parking, and a terrific double patio 'breezeway'. Smoking is allowed in the outdoor living spaces. Here you can chill, listen to music, have a glass of wine or quaff a beer on a warm afternoon. I share my home with 2 cats and sometimes kittens that I 'foster' for the Austin Animal Center. Generally, they amuse and don't bother. I might be available for airport pick-up / drop-off if needed for a nominal charge. My house and I are both a work in progress. I have not yet completed all the intended renovations, but there's nothing that would make one uncomfortable. I am open to any questions or special requests you may have to make your stay in Austin as fabulous as possible.

Lenore was great! There were mints on our pillows and everything was very tidy. She was friendly and always available via phone for questions or suggestions. The place is a little out from Austin's main attractions but there are bus lines nearby. There were good cafes within walking distance and south congress was a short ride away.
Lenore is a very good host. The room/house was exactly as advertised. I spent most of my time out, but when I was there she was a gracious host, willing to help with any detail. She was extremely easy to communicate with, and flexible with check-in and check-out times. The home is in a great location, and I was able to access the downtown by bus in about 10 minutes. All in all a good experience. I would recommend a stay with Lenore.
My boyfriend and I had a LOVELY stay at Lenore's. It was extremely cozy and she was so welcoming. It felt like we were right at home. We spent time, watched shows, and played with her kitties and just overall enjoyed her company :-) as well as we hope she enjoyed ours! A fantastic place to stay! It's a bittersweet goodbye but we hope to be seeing her soon!
Lenore was a wonderful host and helped me make the transition to living in Austin by helping me bridge the gap between arriving and finding an apartment. She's a real local and has the down-low on what's good in the area and I'm very happy that I chose to stay with Lenore and get a taste of the local culture instead of spending two weeks in an expensive, soulless hotel.
Also she has cats and they're adorable. And South 1st street is cooler than South Congress or South Lamar, imho, so Lenore's got the location too.
Great host, groovy house, good times! We hope to visit again!

I stayed two nights in Austin with Lenore and had a wonderful experience. here's why:
1. The Room And bathroom are stylish, beautiful and very comfortable.
2. Lenore went out of her way to make my stay great. She had the local paper and a restaurant guide waiting for me, she offered me her office when I told her I had to get some work done. she even picked me up from the airport and took me to a restaurant she works with (she's a caterer and real foodie) where we basically ate for free.
3. She knows Austin well and gave great advice,
Lenore is a doll and is extremely generous with her space. She will claim it's a mess and disorganized but I assure you, it's not! It was a beautiful space and I was very comfortable there, along with my friend Michele. Plenty of parking, and a beautiful outdoor space. Lenore's house rocks!!
