Our home has been described as warm and welcoming. Enjoy a nice sized bedroom, incredibly comfortable full sized mattress, large bathroom, and a very peaceful backyard to relax after a long day of sightseeing. Come and experience Austin! We are happy to share all the best places to explore in Austin.
Special Notes: 3 Dogs & 3 cats live here, please be pet friendly. Our home is non-smoking, both indoor & outdoor. Best to have a car if staying here or use a ride-share.
Our home is equal distance (about 8 miles) to downtown and to the Circuit of the Americas/Formula One/360 Amphitheater. You will feel completely relaxed and on vacation during your stay. Our property is beautifully landscaped and is a haven for local birds, to include a couple families of Cardinals. There is a large kitchen for cooking and entertaining. There are 3 bedrooms, with the master bedroom on the opposite side of the house. This allows there to be a separation and privacy for my guests. The bedroom on this listing is fully furnished with furniture from the 1960's. There is a full sized bed with 2 nightstand, 2 dressers and a desk with a TV. Fresh, clean linens are provided and can be laundered during your stay. There is a walk in closet, wireless internet, and a semi-private full bathroom (shared with my roommate). Kitchen use with a separate fridge and separate pantry for guests is also available. For long term guests, washer/dryer use is available. Home is a three bedroom/two bath. Large fenced-in backyard with large relaxing deck, a bubbling fish pond, and a lot of greenspace (yard backs up to Onion Creek). While our home is 8 miles from downtown, with Austin traffic, it may take 20-30 minutes to get downtown.
We have 2 medium sized dogs (Scout and Roxanne) and 3 cats. We also have an amazing roommate (who works a lot, it's quite possible you don't meet each other), with a Black Lab!
Located about 1 mile from IH-35/William Cannon.
Close to McKinney Falls State Park (about 4 miles)
Less than 8 miles to Lady Bird Lake/Downtown (Bus stop is about 1/4 mile from house and takes about an hour to get downtown, cab fare is about $20.00 to downtown).
Highly recommend having a car if you plan to stay in our home. It is the easiest way to get around.
Guests can access and enjoy the entire home and open backyard space. Driveway Parking too!

We love to interact with guests, but equally respect their need for downtime and privacy.
If you are interested, please contact me through Airbnb. All initial contacts and reservations should be made through this site. I am not interested in trying to contact you privately. If you have already stayed with me, I welcome your email or phone call. Thank you in advance!
I am happy to provide complimentary transportation to and from the airport if necessary. If you are coming during a festival weekend or during SXSW and you don't want to rent a car, there is a good possibility that I can assist with transportation for far less than a cab ride.
While enjoying your stay, I request no additional overnight guests. Please be respectful of noise and cleanliness. My home is non-smoking both in and outdoors.
And most of all, have a great time in Austin :)

Ruth & I love the outdoors and taking care of our environment. We enjoy our gardens, landscaping, and maintaining our small fishpond, while creating a haven for the local birds. You can often find us cooking up a great meal, watching some of our favorite netflix shows, or off to see some local live music. Our home and yard is truly an Oasis for us. We have 2 dogs (Scout and Roxanne) and 3 cats (Louie, Samantha, and Fraggle). Originally from the Northeastern part of the US (PA/MD). I have been in Austin since 2008 and can't imagine living anywhere else. Austin is a relatively small city filled with people from other places. It creates a city that is filled with people that live here intentionally and love being here. So, I believe the outcome of this, is a city filled with happy people. There is so much to do here always but it's not too big that you feel overwhelmed by it being a city. You can participate or not, but having the option so close is very nice. Austin is becoming a huge hotspot for tourism and people relocating. Our economy is doing well and our Real Estate is reasonably affordable.
Professionally, I am the founder and Executive Director of a local 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization called ATX Kids Club that offers Field Trip Adventures for children. I have previously been an Assistant Principal and Elementary School Teacher.
We hope you consider taking a trip to this wonderful city!
