This peaceful zen room is in a charming two-story house in a gated community on a quiet street in Austin, just 15 minutes from city center!
This 1800 sqft home is centrally located on the east side of Austin. 7 mins to downtown, 15 mins to UT campus, and 20 mins to the airport, it is just close enough to all the action yet far enough removed to have a nice relaxing dinner on the patio and a good nights sleep on a quiet street in a gated neighborhood.
The house has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 half bath, 2 living rooms, washer and dryer, cable, Internet, outdoor and indoor dining areas. Guests have access to ONE private room and ONE bath that can be shared or private depending on if the other room is rented. If you have a preference, just message me and I can tell you if it's private or not for that time period. I live on the property in the THIRD bedroom. A full size futon is available should there be more than 2 of you, PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU'LL NEED THIS AND I WILL HAVE IT SET UP FOR YOU.
The living room upstairs has been transformed into an art gallery and showcases paintings I have done, gifts from other artists, and paintings I've picked up along my travels.
The only rules I have are to keep the space as clean as you found it! I do not wear shoes in the house as I'm super clean and everything has been completely renovated so I'd like to keep it new and fresh as long as possible. There is a bench at the front door that you can lift up the seat and place your shoes in. Smoking is allowed, but only outside. The house itself is a non-smoking, pet-free home.
If you have any other questions regarding Austin in general, I've lived here almost a decade and can give great tips on restaurants, bars, lounges, outdoor activities, etc dependent on the vibe you're going for. Austin is such a great city and I love it so much and only hope to give you the best experience so that you love it as much as I do! Look forward to meeting you!
Guests have access to the entire house except for the Master bedroom.
My neighborhood is diverse and centrally located, super close to a highway. I love that it's gated, adding extra security, peace, and quiet to the neighborhood. There is parking available in my driveway and marked guest parking a few steps from my house but cars are not allowed on the street past 1AM per my HOA. The tow truck comes every night.
Texas in general requires a car. Austin offers many car services such as Car2Go or Zip Cars. There's also taxis and bikes for rent. Austin has great bike lanes.
For long term rentals, please message to discuss. For rentals longer than 1 week, the price is per person.

Guests have access to all common areas and their room. There is a full shower and bathroom in the adjoining hallway that may be shared depending on if there is another guest in the second bedroom. However, if guests prefer to have their own private bath, they may message me and request to have the other bedroom blocked for their time being.
I love interacting with my guests! But will only interact with you as much as you would like and what my schedule allows. I'm totally cool with you just wanting to go to your room and sleep but also am totally cool with sitting down, having a beer and giving directions and advice around Austin!
The washer and dryer is not for AirBnB use, unfortunately.
Unfortunately, pets, children, parties, outside guests, smoking and wearing shoes indoors are not welcome at this time.
Guests should not park on the street because the city does tow. Parking is available only in the driveway and in designated spaces around the complex
