An old bungalow in the heart of Austin -- blocks from the Alamo Drafthouse Lamar, the Saxon Pub, and The Highball. It is a 20 minute walk to the free concerts at Auditorium Shores and just two miles to the convention center downtown.
The house is a two bedroom, one bath. It is 87 years old and features the original pecan Floors. It does feature central air and heating. One room has a queen-sized bed, and the other has a full-sized futon bed which is thick and comfortable. One of the couches in the living room is also long enough to sleep a fifth adult at no additional cost if you wish. As this house isn't vacant, I will have items in the pantry/fridge/closets, though I will make sure everything is clean and welcoming!
Visitors can enjoy free high speed wifi, free DirecTV on an an easy to use home theater setup, and free firewood for the firepit on the back patio. The home also has a charcoal grill and smoker, as well as stainless steel gas appliances.
I ride my bike downtown every weekend, and it is an easy 15 minute trip, using the very nice Lamar Pedestrian bridge (although on the way back be warned that there is a very steep hill at Flipnotics that will require you to walk up). You may rent bikes at Barton Springs Bike Rental.
There is a frontloading washer and dryer in one of the bedrooms.
