ABOUT US: We are very mellow, relatively quiet professional couple, and usually have some sort of regular schedule around productivity, eating, sleeping, and Dr. Who episodes. Personality-wise, we laugh a lot over silly things, and don't fight much, if at all. We're very happy together.
I am a professional costume designer, photographer, and all around artist. Most days I work out of the home, sewing up in our room, or working out in the studio, if I'm not out on a shoot. If you're curious, you can check out my (email hidden), or for the most up to date stuff, check out my(website hidden)page: (website hidden). Tris, my boyfriend, works a regular 9-5 gig in IT, for a financial company located downtown. We usually hang out in our room most evenings, either watching netflix or playing games...when the weather is nice, we get out more and go for walks with Rainbow, our dog, and Peter Porker, the mini pig.
I've done my best to make this space feel inviting and comfortable, and it's an evolving work of art. Any suggestions for making it more so are welcome (I'm new to airBnB)!
Hosts were very friendly & room very clean & comfy! we had a nice stay.
Once again, Jennifer and Tris have been exceptional hosts. They're welcoming and easy-going. All my animal friends were present with the addition of Wesley (Nigerian dwarf goat; boy) and a few temporary, guest duckies. Thank you Jennifer and Tris. :)
I have stayed here many times, and every time is better than the last. The host are great people and they will do their best to accommodate you in anyway possible.
My friend and I are road-tripping from Tampa to Los Angeles. We could not have been happier with our experience with The Jade Room. The design of the room was interesting and fun, the bed was incredibly comfy, the water pressure in the shower was great, and there were lots of cute touches around the room (bath robes, pitcher of water and glasses, etc). Jennifer was not there for our stay but her housesitter Ra'chel was very kind and helpful. We had a lovely stay in Austin and were very well rested for our drive the next day.
We stayed in the Jade Room for four nights, and it was wonderful. Private, conveniently located near a bus line that gets you downtown in half an hour, conscientious & clever hosts Up to Interesting Things, and adorable animals.
Jennifer has created such a wonderful space to stay in and is an excellent host!
I rented this room for a pair of wedding guests; they were thrilled with the accommodations. To quote: "Very eclectic decor, people were all nice, the dog was great, it was a fun place."
