Super close to everything in Austin! 7 minute drive to downtown and the Capital, 5 minutes to the Univ of Texas.
The bedroom listed is a permanent guest room, (not a room normally occupied until its booked). You will have your own bathroom which is not shared by anyone else.
There is a cat, she is declawed, well behaved, and super friendly with guests.
The neighborhood has a great 9ft deep pool that is well maintained and very clean. We'll have beach towels and sunscreen if you need them.
In addition to the guest room and guest bath, you will have access to the kitchen, living room, back yard, washer/dryer, downstairs bath, free guest parking, and neighborhood pool.
The neighborhood is gated, so you'll be provided with a clicker if you have a car. If you don't have a car I will provide a key to the pedestrian gate instead.
The room has a full size Memory Foam bed with freshly washed linens. These are the most comfortable beds ever, trust me.
Free Wifi is included, and there is a computer desk in the room. You will also have access to an Apple TV with Hulu and Netflix accounts. There is an 42" TV in the room which you are welcome to use.
I have lived in Austin for 10 years now, and absolutely love this city. I am pretty knowledgeable about Austin and can suggest great places to eat or shop, provide directions, etc. If you're looking for peace and quiet, while working or exploring Austin, this is the place for you. I will be reachable by text or email if you have questions or need recommendations. I do keep pretty busy and will often be in and out of the house.
Price is not negotiable during events such as SxSW, F1, ACL, or FunFunFun Fest.

I am originally from Palm Beach, Florida but have lived in Austin, Texas for the past 11 years. My husband Chi is originally from Hong Kong but grew up in Houston. We love it here in Austin! This city is full of unique and creative people, and there is always plenty to do. If you love food, art, live music, and a healthy lifestyle, you will find plenty to do in Austin!
We both work for Apple, as its 2nd largest hub is here in Austin. In my free time, I enjoy home improvement projects, yoga, gardening, live music, and trying out all the amazing local restaurants Austin has. Chi practices Jiu Jitsu, plays volleyball and basketball, and is a huge Celtics fan.
We love meeting new people as Airbnb hosts. We try to be as accommodating to our guests as possible. If you are considering our place, but have any questions about the room or what is offered, feel free to reach out. If you have a special request, we will do everything we can to make it happen. As we are at work during the day and have a pretty full fitness/social life, we're not home much so you'll have a quiet place to yourself most of the time. (See comments and reviews, they reflect this).
Look forward to meeting you!
