Descrizione

Our mid-century modern house is conveniently located 5 minutes from downtown and walking distance from several bars, restaurants, and public transit. Enjoy our all-glass living room surrounded by 15 ft. tall bamboo and relax on our roof-top deck.

About:
This is a lovely two-story guest house (1200 sqft) with a secure (locked) private entrance surrounded by an 8 ft privacy fence that is walking distance to all restaurants on Manor Rd., bus-stop, and the light-rail station on MLK blvd (only one stop before downtown stop). Ride share services to downtown average 5-7 dollars. It is convenient to SXSW events, a few blocks from the UT football stadium, and it's on the way to Formula One since we are east of downtown. We live in the front part of the property (not fenced) in a house on the same property as the guest house--the property is very large at 9,000 sqft. The guest house is in the back with its own entrance and shaded parking space. We are a licensed (# 916167) short-term rental with the city of Austin. We are LGBTQ friendly.

Upstairs : There is one bedroom with a queen bed, balcony, two side-tables, LCD screen TV, I-pod alarm clcok, and a closet (with shelves and iron/ironing board). The bathroom is next to the bedroom--it has a large walk-in rain shower. There is also a very large balcony upstairs for lounging among the trees.

Downstairs : there is a large studio (NO DOOR) with a comfy full-size pull-out couch ( high-end foam mattress provided for extra comfort) that is basically a large second bedroom; a full kitchen; and large living area with one couch that can fit one person (if the full size bed in the studio is not an option for 2 people). PLEASE NOTE: This is technically a two bedroom, but the downstairs bedroom is more like a studio as there is not a door, though it is separate from the living area and the bed is privately hidden.

Amenities: Wi-fi, 2 LCD screen TVs, cable with HBO, I-pod alarm radio, central air/heat, full kitchen with stainless steel appliances, parking space in drive-way, private 8 ft. fence, towels, shampoo/conditioner/soap, coffee, and a wood-burning fire-place. There are several restaurants and coffee shops less than 2 blocks away (El Chilito, Salty Sow, East Side Cafe, Unit D Pizza, Mi Madres, Haymaker, School House Pub, Hoovers, Sapo, Thunderbird Coffee, Bennu Coffee, The Wet Whistle, Ingredients, Butterfly Bar, and more. The Rail Station is about a ten minute walk and the bus-stop is only two blocks away at the end of Maple Ave.
Recycling/composting and using organic products is important to us. We do not wash our sheets with fragrance or fabric softner and all our cleaning products are organic.

Getting there:
I will answer all your questions in a prompt manner to ensure you arrive with no problems and will work hard to make sure your stay is enjoyable and comfortable.

During your stay:
Unless you need assistance or have questions (I am always available via phone if not home for questions), you will hardly notice we are there other than the occasional appearance of our friendly dogs (unless you do not like dogs, which means you probably shouldn't stay here).

Rates:
weeknight/weekend (we offer specials in July and August sometimes)
weekly: 875.00 (except SXSW, ACL, and F1)
Monthly: 3200.00 (sometimes negotiable but we do not usually do extended stays other than July-Sept.)
SXSW -
ACL--250.00
*there is a two night minimum for all stays and 75.00 cleaning fee for all stays (this is exactly what we pay the house keeper). We also charge 15.00 per night for each person over two people.
*check-in is 3:00/check-out is noon, but times are negotiable depending on availability. If we have someone checking in the same day you are chekcing out we must have the 3 hour window for the housekeeper to clean and wash all linens so please respect the times.

PETS - Please inquire about a pet you would like to bring-dogs are usually allowed (depending on how many) but not always cats given how expensive some of the furniture is. Also, they must get along with other dogs. There is a 25.00 pet fee for each pet that is paid when you arrive.

EXTENDED STAYS - If you are staying longer than 3 days, we will work out how often you will need new linens per your request. If you want to do laundry you have the option of using the laundry room as you like for 25.00 per week or 3.00 per load (honor system). There is no cleaning service during your stay, but there are supplies for you to use. We can arrange a cleaning service for you if you like.

In addition to the guesthouse and drive-way, you have access to the entire backyard and all tables, chairs, etc. that are available. The laundry room is only available to extended stay guests unless you request it.

As much as needed. We are always available to answer questions or help with something that is needed, but we like to give guests their space unless they need us for any reason.


I love that our neighborhood is very diverse and you can access everything you need on foot other than a major grocery store (need a bike or bus for that). The majority of people moving in lately are professors and down-town professionals because the neighborhood has become very expensive lately. Many of the artists and families that lived here before the real estate boom are still in the area as well to keep it from being over-gentrified, but it is changing very fast. Just as we have expensive restaurants and many that are not; there's every style of house in our neighborhood as well: large modern homes, 50's style bungalows, high-end condos, and even a few almost-shacks. if you're used to neighborhoods where every house looks the same; this is not the neighborhood for you. Despite a few eye-sores here and there, the neighborhood is very safe and full of people jogging/cycling, walking dogs, and strolling kids.

The Rail Station is about a ten minute walk and the bus-stop is only two blocks away at the end of Maple Ave. The bus or train to downtown area is about 5-10 minutes. Ride share options are the quickest way and are about 5 to 10 bucks to downtown.

we had such a fantastic stay at this stylish house! michelle was an excellent host, friendly and communicative. entry is very straightforward, location is perfect and in walking distance to lots of things, in a neat neighborhood. the house was well equipped, comfortable, clean, and a nice place to hang out when we had some down time. the roof deck is a great bonus. bathroom was beautiful, and bedrooms were quite private. just a great vibe overall, we loved it. and if you're lucky, you might get to pet two sweet pups. we'd stay here again for sure!

We loved Michelle's place. Check-in was an absolute breeze. No need to coordinate a meet-up or worry about timing our flight/car ride, etc. The place is as beautiful as the pictures show. Michelle has thought of everything you might need. We spent plenty of time relaxing on the roof deck, which was a perfect way to spend a vacation. Michelle and her husband were both friendly and approachable. We crossed paths a couple times, but never intrusive. Plus, the neighborhood is walkable to a bunch of cute restaurants and bars. We didn't have a car, so this was ideal. It was a perfect AirBNB experience. If we make it back to Austin, we would happily stay here again!

This was a perfect enclave for a father-daughter visit to Austin -- very comfortable, warmly welcoming, well located. Michelle and her family were lovely (yet entirely non-intrusive) hosts, and they also gave us excellent tips for restaurants and touring that totally panned out. Would absolutely go back again.

Michelle's place is even cuter and more quaint in person, it was the perfect place to stay during our trip to Austin! Super comfortable and Michelle was very welcoming and helpful when it came to recommending places to check out. The neighborhood is nice and there's plenty to do in walking distance. We traveled with our daughter and this was a great place for a young family. We would definitely stay here again!!

This was the easiest AirBnB stay we've had. It's the perfect guest house where you can come and go without disrupting anyone or feeling like you are in the way. It's beautiful. Quiet, sunny and airy and just darling. Outdoor spaces to relax are a major bonus.

Our stay in Austin was above and beyond expectations – much due to Michelle's hospitality. Her guest house is quintessential "cool" Austin – the decor was impeccable. Also, the location is hard to beat. Everywhere we wanted to go was within 15 min driving/riding time. Lastly, Michelle was so gracious with our puppy and even took him out to play while we were away for several hours at a wedding. All in all it made for a perfect and comfortable stay for 4 + puppy for our weekend in Austin.

I moved a way a few times, but always found my way back to Austin - this city is hard to beat for food, weather, and fun. My husband and I both love to travel and prefer to stay in boutique hotels or guest houses when we do, so we decided to offer up our guest house for people traveling to Austin that want a similar experience. I work in the Mental Health field (used to work in the music industry) but have a love for design and architecture - I designed the outside and inside of the guest house myself. In addition to traveling, my husband and I love food and music--Austin is great for both!
