Escape to Austin and stay in a newly remodeled bungalow in the heart of all the hip East ATX action. One mile from downtown, even closer to the legendary East-side food trucks and eateries like Franklin BBQ, Qui, LaV, Contigo & East Side King.
The Space NOTE: If dates are shown as available, don't hesitate to instant book. I keep my calendar up to date. If the dates are not available, message me because I have several other listings.
Stay for a long weekend while you visit Austin, or make this your landing spot while you get permanently settled.
This newly remodeled 50's bunglow is the perfect escape to the quintessential Austin experience but with all the modern ammenties. The 2 bedroom bungalow will accomidate up to four people. If you want to add more than four people to the party, there is a fold down couch, air mattress, regular couch, and I rent the vintage camper out out back for $65.
MORE ABOUT THE CAMPER RENTAL: I rent out the Shasta vintage camper in the backyard for an extra $65 a night to guests also renting the house. It has AC and is super cute. Be sure to message me if you want to rent the camper so I can check availablity. If you decide not to rent the camper, there may be guests renting it and sharing the backyard. The more the merrier... share a lone star... get to know other travelers.
Guest Access Guests have access to the entire house and free parking in the driveway or street. House has internet, full kitchen, laundry (see amenities). I also have bikes that are available for use. The house has a lockbox and I will provide you with the code will be prior to your arrival.
Interaction with Guests I am happy to give you as much privacy or interaction as you prefer during your stay. I love meeting my guests and sharing recommendations so don't hesitate to ask. I work normal business hours but I am available via text or email if any urgent issues come up. Be sure to check out my online guidebook (desktop version only) by clicking on the map tab.
The Neighborhood I have lived in East Austin for 12 years and love the thriving artist, urban gardening, DIY community. The neighborhood is within close proximity to downtown, South Austin, UT and all the other hip central places to visit.
East Austin is where you will find amazing food, all kinds of art, music, DIY house shows, loose chickens and wylie and friendly neighbors to talk to. Airbnb has a great East Austin neighborhood guide. Check it out: https://www.airbnb.com/locations/austin/east-downtown

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.
