About This Listing
Our lovely room with your own private bath comfortably fits two and is centrally located on a quiet street, just a short walk to Zilker Park and not far from downtown Austin. Easy access to bus, bikes and walking paths. We are fun hosts!
Comfy, cozy bedroom with king sized bed where you will awake feeling you are nestled amongst the trees! Beautiful home in hidden quiet neighborhood pocket, minutes from downtown, within walking distance to Zilker Park and Town Lake hike and bike trail. Bicycle rental available nearby. We have one upstairs bedroom that can sleep up to two people in comfy queen sized bed. Enjoy your own, “hotel equipped” private bathroom. You can join us in the kitchen in the morning for the best coffee in town! We have a cat (in case you are allergic.) She is allergic to dogs so we are unable to accept animals!
Pricing may not be clear - it is $75 per night during the week, $90 during the weekends and $195 during major Austin events such as F1, SXSW and ACL.
There is no private entrance but coming and going is no problem. We ask that you remove your shoes upstairs as the floors are hardwood and make a lot of noise! Free Wifi is available. Just added flat screen TV in the bedroom. However, if we are watching a film in the theater room, you are welcome to join us.
The neighborhood is beautiful. There are many great "local" restaurants within walking distance. Public transit is also within walking distance with music, film and convention hall venues easily accessible. There is also parking on the street in front of the house if you rent a car.
Do you have musical talent? We have a gorgeous Yamaha baby grand piano! We are open to anyone who would like to play and enjoy some music in this beautiful setting.
We are open to events being held at the house, however, the event will need our prior approval and subject to additional costs and cleaning fees.
Our home is our pride and joy - a sacred space where many gather. We love people and love sharing our home with others. We promise you will enjoy the Austin experience in a peaceful and beautiful setting. You won't be disappointed!
You will have access to 1 room and bathroom upstairs and other common areas. If you desire more than one bed, we will charge extra for that. We have a tempurpedic-type mattress top that we can put on the floor in the living room but we prefer our guests to stay in one room and use the bathroom upstairs. You can store food in the fridge if you like, use the microwave or the small convection oven. We do not provide access to cooking facilities other than what we have stated. We have a beautiful baby-grand piano if you play! We provide guest access to the Internet 50Mb/s down 5Mb/s up. There is a color LCD TV with antenna and a ROKU box attached. We have a printer on the network if needed. Upon a confirmed reservation, we will send you a welcoming package with lots of great information about the area - links to restaurants, fun activities, entertainment, bike rentals and other transportation.
Interaction with Guests
We are very friendly and love to make new friends! The cat's name Tilley but she can be a little shy. She doesn't like to be picked up but loves to be petted.
The neighborhood is like a little oasis amidst the "almost" downtown area. It's close to everything yet provides an escape when needed.
As mentioned in our description, public transportation is easily accessible, walking trails are abundant, bike rental close by and easy parking in front of the house in case you rent a car. Within walking distance to ACL events at Zilker Park. Again, upon a confirmed reservation we will happily send you information about all of this!
Other Things to Note
Cancellations are strict. Please make a note of this when booking with us.
Bedroom is upstairs. No curfew but please remove shoes upstairs. (Hardwood floors upstairs can be noisy downstairs!) No smoking inside the house or in the front or backyard. Generally, no parties but we are open to possible events. We provide coffee and tea in the mornings There is one curious cat in the house most of the time. If you do not want a cat jumping up on your bed, you must keep the door shut!
Tom and Donna are very friendly and welcoming, and the room is spacious and comfortable. Their place is now on my list of favorite Austin Airbnbs!
Donna and Tom were extremely welcoming and friendly. We felt right at home that resembled their description perfectly. The neighborhood is beautiful - a little oasis with trees on a hill walking distance to Barton Springs and a great place to get fresh juice called Juiceland.
We really enjoyed meeting Donna and Tom. They are both interesting and thoughtful. I would highly recommend staying with them, we had a great experience.
Donna and Tom are both wonderful hosts and they made us feel totally comfortable and most welcome. Donna graciously picked me up at the airport even after my flight plans had unexpectedly changed twice and my partner got delayed till the wee hours of the night....Donna didn't skip a beat. Their home is beautiful, the room is lovely and quiet, the king bed superb, and all was spotlessly refreshing. Donna always responded quickly and thoroughly. We found the location to be ideal as there was fun local stuff to do a car ride to CC was less than 10 min.
This my first AirBnB experience, and I hope my future ones are as perfect! Super-nice couple, clean, sizable well-appointed room in a gorgeous home, private bathroom, no problems with my random (and sometimes late!) hours in and out, great coffee in the am and a perfect location to access all of Austin's great attractions and neighborhoods. Its proximity to Zilker park and the recreation it offered were a huge plus for me. Close enough to get anywhere I wanted in Austin with a quick Uber lift yet quiet and tucked away, more quiet and "residential" than "urban," I really dug this location.
Looking forward to coming back!
Donna and Tom are wonderful, kind hosts. The place was very clean and comfortable. It's close to downtown, B-Cycle stations, and a beautiful park. The hosts are knowledgeable about the area and can recommend some fun things to do and see while in Austin. We enjoyed our stay with Donna and Tom!
Donna and Tom were great hosts and the house was lovely. We had a wonderful time in Austin. Thanks!
