I'm now a licensed innkeeper in Austin Tx. My rates include all local hotel taxes.
The Bouldin neighborhood is one of Austin's hippest areas with plenty of fun things to do and places to eat, drink and be merry. All of the pictures of the Bouldin Neighborhood on Airbnb's site, are within 4 blocks of my house. It's a great walking/biking neighborhood. I I like to say you're within 3 miles of most anything you would probably want to do here.
I’m a working artist and avid live music fan. My house has hosted weddings, house concerts, commercial film shoots, music videos, graduations, wrap parties, fundraisers, “after-the-gig” salons and the infamous “1st Sunday Potluck” every month for 10 years. If walls could talk they’d tell you to come on in pull up a chair and have a good time. This property has been most often described as the real Austin deal.
This is a 2 bedroom 1 bath house on 1/3 of an acre, 1.5 miles from downtown. My decorating style is eclectic and artsy. Or as my grandmother calls it, “Early Garage Sale”!
The room has 1 twin and 1 double bed. So 3 people can fit in the room.
Most important to SXSW attendees is the house is super close to the center of SXSW action. It takes 10 minutes to get to the convention center by bike. Coming home is uphill, so it's more like 15. I’m 2 blocks from S. Lamar- lots of venues and restaurants. 4 blocks from South 1st-lots of trendy food trailers and restaurants. And 8 blocks to South Congress. That’s right, THE world famous South Congress. A stones throw from my property is Thai Fresh and Thrice coffee house and venue. 3 blks away is Bouldin Creek Café and Polvo’s Mexican restaurant. Zilker Park- 2 mi., The Long Center-1 mi., Convention Center- 2 mi, Capitol 3 mi.
-this room now has a double bed with a single added upon request.
- I'm right on the official City of Austin bike bath. It's extensive.
- #5 Bus is right next to my house
- It's good for events but there is an extra charge
- Kitty- corner from Twin Oaks Library
- Corner store is behind my house but HEB is .75 mi and Whole Foods is 1.5 mi.
-Yo hablo Espanol!
-The house is about 10-15 minutes from tihe airport and is a cheap taxi ride.
My art studio is on the property as well as a 600 sq. ft apartment. Plenty of privacy between both. It's also on Airbnb. The apt sleeps 3. And then there’s “The Porch”. I’m proud to say it’s inspired songs and paintings. No really. Someone showed up one time with a painting of my porch as a hostess present. It’s a wrap-around that’s 14' wide on the North side.
Security deposit is $200 for short stays. For stays longer than 2 weeks the deposit is $500. This will be returned by Airbnb a couple of days after check out. 1 pet is allowed. A cleaning fee of $60 will be added for stays longer than 6 nights. There's a fee 0f $20 for your pet.
I do have two dogs that will be on the property.
I'm an Austin native and a wealth of resources and information. Knowing a local is like gold when you’re traveling so ask anything. All in all, we're pretty accommodating. I want to show you why Austin is the best place in the world to have fun and see great music.
