Galindo house description

Come stay in a newly renovated retro 50s/60s Atomic Ranch house. Think cowboys meet cyborgs and dinos at a bar made from pennies!

The house is in the nucleus of all the food and entertainment in South Austin and is a short distance to more of the action downtown across the river.

Stay for a long weekend while you visit Austin, or make this your landing spot while you get permanently settled in Austin. The house is equipped with full kitchen. The penny tile bar and dinos vs. cowboys living room will tempt you to kick off your cowboy boots and stay awhile.

The house fits 6 people comfortably but will sleep up to 10 if you don't mind a packed house. Keep in mind there is only one bathroom.

Walking/biking distance to South First and South Congress St. (SOCO). Enjoy the best of Austin's award-winning eateries and food trucks: Torchy's Tacos, Polvos (Mexican), Elizabeth St. Cafe (Vietnamese), Lenoir (French) Sway (Thai), Barley Swine (Gastropub), Lick (Ice Cream), Gordough's (Donuts), and much more!

BUS ROUTES:
From Airport: Take the Capitol Metro Airport Flyer

To Downtown: The house is 200 yards from the Capitol Metro stop and 1/4 mile from the South First Stop that goes downtown.

Will accommodate up to 10 people.

1 Queen Bed
1 Full/1 Twin Bunk bed
1 Full Sleeper Sofa
1 Fold Down Click & Clack Couch
1 Fold Down Chaise Lounge

Note: This listing is operating with a City of Austin STR License

              Owner info

              About the owner: I love sharing my home with friends and strangers alike. I've lived in Austin for 12 years and am happy to point you to spots off the beaten path (Cathedral of Junk) to the sparkling jewels in the middle of the city (Barton Springs). I'm a User-Experience Designer for a Clean Tech/Energy Management start-up. I love the challenge and rewards of conserving in all aspects of life. I enjoy bike riding, brewing and drinking craft beer, gardening, petting my chickens, sewing and DIY projects, seeing live music, traveling, and eating great food. I've only been to 13 countries and 25 states. I most recently spent a few months in Hawaii living off grid on a living farm that is doing reforestation on the Big Island.

              Why the Owner Chose Galindo:
              The Atomic Ranch is for those looking for a quintessential Austin vacation. The house was designed with the aesthetic of the 50/60s era with the modern comforts one would expect from a home.
