Newly constructed casita in a beautiful backyard in East Austin. Has abundant natural light, full bathroom, comfy bed, lounge/work space and your own private patio for taking a load off. Right down the block from both the neighborhood bar and coffee shop, walking distance to several shopping centers and just 10 minutes (by car or bus) to downtown. Come experience the best of what the colorful East Side has to offer. Perfect for a weekend getaway, business trip, SXSW, ACL, F1 or 'Horns game.
The casita is a studs-out remodel of a former art barn/storage building. It's completely detached from the main house (therefore very private) and a tiny house through and through. It's got amazing natural light, high ceilings, comfy queen-size bed, full bathroom (complete with rain shower!), travel book library (to help plan your current or future adventure), wifi, fridge/microwave and its own patio. It's suitable for one to two people.
You'll have your own private entrance off the driveway that leads to the patio and casita. Parking on the street is super easy.
I work full time, but I'm around a lot in the evenings and on weekends. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have about your stay or Austin in general. I spend a lot of time outside, so you'll probably catch me puttering in the garden, walking my two dogs around the neighborhood or drinking wine with friends on my patio. I welcome all guests regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, national origin or sexual orientation.
I have two sweet dogs that play in the backyard fairly often (sorry, I don't allow additional pets on the property). The casita patio is fenced off from the main yard, so the girls won't have access to it, but they'll definitely come to the fence to say hello!
The space is really best suited for one or two people. Children are welcome, but there is not room for a pack-and-play or any other additional sleeping surfaces.
- ABSOLUTELY no smoking. If I smell smoke in the unit after check-out, you will lose your security deposit and be charged for the full cost of professional remediation.
- No illegal substances or activities allowed.
- Street parking only.
- Registered guests only. No third party bookings permitted.
- No commercial filming or photo shoots on the property.
- Be cool. You're staying in an urban backyard with neighbors nearby. :)
I am a marketing executive by day and an explorer at all other times. I love living in Austin and taking advantage of everything my favorite city has to offer: great music, killer food and plenty of weirdness to go around. I love being outside and hiking with my dogs on many of the trails in town, working in my garden or drinking a beer on a patio somewhere.
I love living in Texas, but I have also spent several years living on the east coast. I also studied abroad in Australia during college and I hope to find the time to get back one day.
Overall, I'm an easygoing traveler and tend to plan my adventures with family and/or friends. When I'm in a city, I try to take it all in and don't really spend much time at 'home' unless I'm sleeping. I travel to Europe about every year and I try to make it to a new part of the US every year or so as well. I can't wait to plan my next trip!
