About this listing

Cozy colorful studio with exposed rafters in quiet neighborhood. Come and go as you wish, ten minutes from downtown, fifteen from the airport. Can sleep up to four on comfortable futon and airbed!

The space

Colorful detached Studio apartment with full bath and kitchenette. Furnished with a comfortable futon bed, table and chairs, mini fridge, hot plate, and coffee maker. Shower has a water heater right on the other side of the wall- no waiting for hot water!

A queen sized air mattress can be provided to fit two more people for an extra charge.

There's a bus stop ten minutes walk from the front door, and there are some restaurants and fast food within walking distance as well.

There is no smoking allowed inside, but there are chairs outside for those who wish to kick back at the end of the day.

There are two cats and one dog on the property, but they are not allowed in the studio, so those with allergies need not worry. I have allowed the occasional small dog to stay in the studio, and make an extra effort to clean after they are gone. If you have a dog you would like to stay with, there will be an extra cleaning fee.

The kitchenette has a fridge, a hot plate, and a coffee maker. for your use. There is also a shelf with an assortment of board games, puzzles, and books if you wish to stay in!

I'm happy to talk about a discount, especially in slow months!

This is Central Texas, and we have a shocking amount of bugs in the summer and fall months. I make every effort to keep them out of the studio, but I'm afraid some always manage to get in, and short of making the place too toxic to live, you may encounter one. If you need help dealing with one (and no shame if you do, then I'm happy to help.)

Interaction with guests

I am currently staying home with my toddler, so I am usually there if you need anything. If you'd like extra towels for a dip in Barton Springs (or any other of the great pools around here) I'm happy to provide those. Also, anyone staying longer than a week is very welcome to ask for clean sheets and towels.

House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events
Check in is anytime after 1PM

Please be respectful. No loud music after eleven, and please come and go quietly very early or very late. No smoking indoors.

Try to let me know you arrival time a day in advance. I am very flexible when it comes to when you arrive and leave, but I like to know when so I can plan my day.

Please do not ring the doorbell after seven thirty. The toddler might be sleeping, and the dog always barks at the bell. (She is very friendly, just very loud.) You can always text me if anything comes up.

If your have more trash than can fit in the trashcan inside, the grey bin is trash, the blue is recycling.

Do not let the cats in the studio. I am trying to keep it allergen free, and the mostly white one is not bright and might pee on your stuff (though she is otherwise very sweet and likes to be pet.)

A lost key is a fifteen dollar charge.

We definitely enjoyed our stay at Erica's place. It was clean, cozy, and have everything we needed for a fun New Years time. The bed was comfy and the neighborhood was quiet. We all slept well. Communication was great and everything went smoothly. Would definitely recommend this place.

Erica was very nice to us and we felt safe there in her little neighborhood. We didn't spend much time there- just slept there at night and we were out all day. If you are just looking for a room to crash in while being close to south Austin and COTA, then her place does the job.

This is a cute converted garage apartment with easy access to downtown Austin and South Congress. We had a great time.

This place is a great little eclectic hideaway, yet it's close to everything we needed on our business trip.

I am dedicated to local food and farming, and your stay can be fueled by eggs from the chickens in the backyard!

Airbnb is a great way for me to stay home with my baby. I love meeting new people and seeing new faces.
