LOCATION AND PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION: Our home is 2.5 miles from downtown, and from the Longhorn Football Stadium. We are located .5 miles from the MLK MetroRail stop that runs to East 6th (5th and Comal) and on to downtown (4th and Trinity), and .2 miles from bus lines (#6 and #18). We are also a quick .2 miles from TacoMex and a neighborhood BBQ joint! Manor Road eateries such as Thunderbird Coffee, El Chilito, Elaine's Pork and Pie, and East Side Cafe, are 1 mile away.

KITCHEN / LAUNDRY: Our kitchen is yours to enjoy while you are here. Available: French press, espresso machine, teapot, microwave, toaster oven, stove, pots and pans, etc. We have a washer and dryer, plus an inside / outside drying rack which will quickly dry your clothes in the warm Texas sun if you prefer.
YARD: Our lot is .25 acres - pretty spacious! Enjoy our front porch or small side yard, both strung with colorful lights, or our back porch and large backyard. The sky is huge out back - you can see the stars or clouds above and downtown Austin in the distance. Sunbathers welcome - you could get more sun than you could stand on any given day out there.
DOGS! We have two husky mix puppies born around 2013 New Year, Roxie and Zeus. They sleep in a crate at night, and hang out both outside and in the back tiled room pictured. They are super cuddly and friendly.
We love to host people in Austin, and are more than happy to offer suggestions for restaurants, activities, bars, or whatever interests you. We look forward to meeting you!

Tom is a master of smoking meat, an artist, and a poet who was once not in a rap crew. Julia is a Pilates instructor, flower arranger, and eater of foods prepared by Tom. We enjoy socializing and making our home a more beautiful place to be!
