Swim, sun and relax in this eclectic home/studio of a world traveling, award-winning designer. Situated on a very private 2 acre lot, huge windows offer stunning views. Only 14 min. to downtown + featured on ABC TV. This home is part of the Airbnb Plus program, see more photos on listing 1588655, (Google search Airbnb 1588655).

The space
Airbnb Plus is a NEW selection of only the highest quality homes with hosts known for great reviews and attention to detail. Every home is visited in person for a 100+ point quality inspection to ensure your comfort. I've duplicated my listing here while Airbnb works out a way for owners to display our own photos on the Plus listing. For that reason, my many reviews (all 5 star), are attached to the Plus listing. Feel free to book through either listing, they're both linked and offer the same pricing. (And please check with me on mid-week minimums and pricing before booking. Airbnb doesn't allow me to automatically program these into the quote system)

The two story, naturally lighted artist's loft has a flexible floor plan to accommodate a wide range of entertaining and sleeping arrangements. Filled with textiles, folk art, natural materials and oodles of eclectic ephemera, I've been told there's something about the space that fuels the imagination and inspires a sense of play, making it perfect for corporate brainstorming sessions and artist/writer retreats.

The very private outdoor living space offers numerous ways to enjoy the warm Austin weather; eat breakfast in the large screened porch, sip mojitos on the deck or paddle around the lap pool as deer, foxes, Mexican eagles and hummingbirds frolic nearby.

The Sunset Valley neighborhood features large lots, many old and beautiful trees, horses and abundant wildlife yet its only 14 minutes from downtown Austin. The Sunset Valley hiking trailhead is two blocks away, and the Violet Crown trailhead, connecting Sunset Valley to the Barton Creek Greenbelt, is only four minutes away by car. Should you need to stock up on supplies there’s a massive shopping area four minutes to the west (on Brodie Lane), and my favorite, huge gourmet grocery store (Central Market) four minutes to the east.

Guest access
You'll have access to the entire property excluding the carport and the "caretaker's cottage" above it.

Other things to note
Personal Chef, yoga, tarot card reading and On-site Massage services are also available for an additional cost.

The Sunset Valley neighborhood is Austin's best kept secret! We have large lots, and lots of green space and hiking trails. You'll enjoy a rural retreat (some of my neighbors keep horses, goats and donkeys) even though you'll be 14 minutes to downtown Austin, and within walking distance to a gourmet grocery store, live music cafes, shopping and movie theater.

I'm an artist, designer, foodie, film buff and outsider art collector. (I'm an antique show, junk shop and ebay addict!). I designed my house to revolve around the kitchen and the art studio, the two places where I'm most happy. Well, make that three places, I'm happy swimming in my pool too. And oh yeah, I'm happy hanging out with friends on my porch, eating fresh food we just dragged home from the Sunset Valley Farmers Market (only two blocks away). And I'm happy when I'm traveling off the beaten path and meeting new people. I guess I'm just generally happy. You see I was born and raised in upstate New York, where the winters are long and cold. Now that I live in Austin, where the weather is warm, the people are friendly and the culture is lively, I'm in heaven!
