Cheerful, thoughtfully designed home with 3 bedrooms, a large covered deck to hang out on and a big beautiful yard full of shady oak trees. Located in the heart of fun, funky South Austin between South Congress and South Lamar.
Our goal was to create a space that is comfortable and welcoming and cheerful for our guests with the added privacy, spacious kitchen, and plentiful outdoor space that a real home provides. We love hosting and it's our personal mission to make sure you have a happy, fun, comfortable stay at our home. ALL are welcome at Sparrow House. We are family friendly (Pack n' Play, play mat, and indoor play area gate available upon request), LGBTQ friendly, and warmly welcome guests from all nationalities and backgrounds.
The home has 3 bedrooms, rain shower, kitchen, living room, dining room, a front courtyard and a large covered back deck and big shaded back yard with lots of giant oak trees. There are two bedrooms with queen size beds and one bedroom with a twin daybed that will sleep one comfortably. The daybed room also contains a beautiful marble top desk perfect for a working vacation. The dining room and back deck table also make for a nice sunny spot for work sessions.
The living room is open to the kitchen and provides a comfortable space to relax. There are ample windows and skylights, which give nice views of the courtyard and oak trees.
The bright and colorful dining room seats 5 and looks out onto the back deck and great oak trees in the back yard.
Comfortable cotton linens, and plenty of closet space and hangers. One bedroom can double as an office.
The marble spa shower has rainfall shower head and horizontal jets and makes for happy mornings! We provide shampoo, conditioner, body wash and fluffy cotton towels.
The back deck has a covered outdoor living area with a dining table, lounge chairs and a swing. It's a perfect spot for a lazy evening with friends and a bottle of wine or for hosting a full dinner. The courtyard out front provides privacy and additional space to hang out. Between the 2 areas, there is approximately 600 square feet of patio and deck space
We love our two hundred and fifty year old city protected heritage oak tree which grows right through the back deck. There are also pecan trees, a magnolia tree, a redbud tree and mountain laurels that smell like grape candy.

I will share check-in info, house orientation, neighborhood orientation and some recommendations before your stay, after that I'll leave you to explore. As proud native of Austin I know the food, music and entertainment options like the back of my hand and loving sharing what I love about the city, so please ask for suggestions! I have recommendations for pretty much everything!
Sparrow House is on a main, centrally located street in Austin. Please note that driveway parking is limited to two cars (additional street parking may be a block or more away) and that guests should take care backing out onto the street.
This home is my pride and joy, please treat it gently. Have fun and remember to be respectful of the place and the neighbors.
Smoking is only allowed outside. Please clean up any and all butts, as well as any other bottles, plates, etc if you do use the outdoor space. They will count towards any security deposit as the outdoor area is not covered in the cleaning fees.
Please do not move any indoor furniture, etc to the outdoor living space or vice versa.
If you're interested in using the house/outdoor area for an event during your stay, please contact me about details.
Upon leaving, please clean any used dishes, dispose of trash, turn off the lights and make sure that all doors and windows are locked.
