Enjoy one or both of our private guest bedrooms and one private bath in East Central Austin. Our home is a warm and comfortable place, with bright colors, art, and plants!
The rooms accommodate up to 4 people maximum. We will only rent out the second bedroom to members of the same party renting the first bedroom (at $25 extra for a third and fourth occupant), so that if you need only the first bedroom your party has sole use of the guest bathroom.
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. Our home is 7 miles from the airport - an easy cab or bus ride.
ROOMS: Rooms are sunny and clean, and have lots of personality. The beds are full sized futons. Clean sheets and towels will be waiting for you! Wifi is available.
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!

Myself and my two friends stayed with Julia and Tom and we can't recommend them highly enough! They have a beautiful, relaxed and comfortable place, lovely rooms, and a separate bathroom for guests. They made us feel so welcome! Their home is in an awesome area and they were always contactable and had heaps of recommendations for great places to eat and go out. The doggies are gorgeous! I would definitely stay with them again (for the amazing coffee alone!) and recommend anyone do the same. Thanks guys! :)
Great stay in Austin! Julia and Tom were warm and welcoming with excellent restaurant recommendations. You will feel relaxed and at home during your stay. The dogs are sweet also!
Julia and Tom were great hosts! This was my first AirBNB experience so I was on the fence. I will 100% recommend Airbnb AND Julia and Tom's house in the future. The location of the house was great, very close to both the airport, and downtown. They gave us tons of recommendations for places to see and eat. Never having been to Austin before, it was a huge help having them there. The house is clean, and the dogs are the BEST. Julia and Tom both made our visit to Austin so comfortable. We stayed in both rooms, and had our own bathroom that was great as well. The back deck is great for lounging in the sun, having drinks, and enjoying the Texas weather. I will be back to Austin that is for sure!
Tom and Julia are a great couple who looked after us incredibly well. We were rushing in and out a lot but they always made us feel welcome and at ease in their place. The house is very comfortable with a nice decking out in the garden to enjoy the Texas sun! The cute dogs and the free Austin coffee only added to the experience! Thank you for such a great stay,
Alex and Will
Julia and her husband were very gracious and easy-going hosts and I won't hesitate to contact them before future visits to Austin. They were eager to offer advice about restaurants, transportation, and events happening around town during the week of Halloween. Julia responded quickly to questions and concerns via email and phone even before the stay began.
The house is cozy, brightly decorated, and has a spacious back deck and yard. A low gate partitioned an area in the house for her friendly dogs to roam, but they were just as happy to cuddle if you'd let them! My friends and I were able to use some fridge space and had a private bathroom to ourselves. Julia was kind enough to provide us with fresh coffee beans for our stay. It was a thoughtful touch that really made us feel welcomed.
The house is conveniently located between two bus lines and the light rail that run downtown so even without a car the location was ideal. A cab ride from W. 6th St. ran us about $12. As my first Airbnb experience, I'm really pleased with the overall convenience of the online service and the benefits of staying with locals.
I booked Julia's place a day or two before my arrival and they accommodated me generously. They are a lovely couple and the house is very comfortable. I would highly recommend the place.
We enjoyed our stay with Julian and Tom a lot. They were very welcoming and extremely helpful by giving us tips where to eat etc. in Austin. The room is large and comfortable and the house very clean. Their two puppies are adorable and well behaved. Overall a great stay, and we'll definitely be back whenever traveling to Austin.
This was my first BNB experience, I had a last minute booking for me and a friend to Austin for the weekend. Julia was an angel to accommodate us at such short notice. Julia and Tom's home is very zen like and hippie chic. Her dogs are more than cute and super friendly which made our stay even better!!!! Julia is a great host as she was very communicative, as well helpful with showing us great places to eat around town. She was sweet to provide us with comfy towels and amazing french press coffee. THANK YOU AGAIN JULIA AND TOM! You made our experience more than great! :)
Julia and Tom were fantastic to stay with! Both super lovely, friendly and easy going. They made us feel right at home from the start. They even had a bag of fresh coffee beans for us on our arrival! The house is beautiful with art work throughout it, great kitchen facilities, really clean and a big backyard space. The location is good too! You can catch a bus or train into downtown but there are cafes and restaurants a 15/20 minute walk away. If you want recommendations both Julia and Tom know the city really well and can point you in the right direction. There is also a BBQ place at the end of their street, which we tried and thought was really good. But we had the best BBQ experience with Tom smoking us brisket for dinner, we loved it!! Oh and the two gorgeous puppies Roxie and Zues (scientist) are great dogs. We loved hanging out with them! Overall we couldn't have asked for a better stay in Austin! Can't recommend their place enough!! Hopefully will see you in Melbourne : )
I enjoyed my stay here. They were able to get the place ready at a very last minute's notice in the evening. Very friendly and hospitable. I was able to come and go at any time (that was one of my concerns for one of these places), cab rides from here to downtown are $12-13/ about 10-15 minutes ride. Their dogs are very playful and friendly, but they have their own section in the house if you're not into cute lil pups coming up to greet you. I'm not sure if this is all year-round but they have a set of christmas lights on the porch so that you can find your way back to the house easily, that was very useful. I recommend this to anyone that's looking to try something different from a hotel but still wants to be close to downtown Austin.
