If you love drinking top notch coffee (with a donation to the coffee fund) in the morning while looking out at a quiet creek in the middle of the hustle and bustle of what is East Austin with people from all over the world, you have found your place……….
The property hosts a large home with an oversized kitchen and living room. The room is beautiful, so nice you might find yourself not wanting to leave the room. The people are so beautiful though that you will have a hard time going to your bedroom. The bedroom has a queen size bed with a new mattress and sheets. Sorry but there is no tv as the house is more of a quite relaxing space for people who does not want to hear tv blasting from the living room and more enjoy conversation with others from around the world. We are friendly, quiet and very laid back. Outside of the property is what we will just call the "charm" of East Austin, weird indeed as the slogan would call it. When you step past the large front coverage of trees that line the 1/2 acre property though you find yourself in an oasis filled with green lawns, a screened in patio next to the trickling backyard stream, owls calling their lovers, the resident hawk flying overhead, cranes flying down the creek fishing for their breakfast (if you wake up early enough), and flying unicorns (just kidding). My friend said to me as I was tooth brushing the baseboards, “Cassie, nobody is going to care what the inside looks like after seeing the backyard.”
Ok do I have you sold? Sounding good? Let me lower your expectations so that you are completely blown away. There might be others renting rooms in the house while you but the more the merry right? People who stay here seem to make forever friends and so enjoy spending time with other guest here. Do not worry, we have hot water on demand. There are two bathrooms, one with a vintage bathtub from 1902, but you have to take a short walk outside to get to the second one (sounds weird but I have had guest actually say that it gives a lot of privacy for well you know......). The flooring in the living room is sealed concrete. Oh and lastly, the natives are friendly.
Snuggles from the friendly dog and manipulations from the sly cat are always an option.
The rate includes fast wifi, use of kitchen and living room, fire pit, a large patio and screened in porch, creek, linens and towels, Dr. Bronner’s soap, access to the main house washer and drier, coffee and tea (for donation) and kitchen essentials.
Just bring yourself, an open heart and your bag of clothes...
We want everybody who comes here to love their stay, so please ask for anything you need and we will help as much as possible…. Just ask.
There is bus transportation one block from the house that goes into downtown. All details about transportation are in the house manual.
Smoking only allowed outside.

Large Room in Natural Setting on Creek
This was my first airbnb experience. It WAY surpassed my expectations. Location was great, house was very comfortable, cozy & clean. Pricing, compared to other forms of lodging, was significantly less than all of the other choices available. Hostess was very friendly, helpful & fun to be around. Pets (dog & cat) were well mannered & precious. But the best part was meeting fellow airbnb folks from several different countries who also chose to stay at this house over the weekend! The conversations, time spent getting to know each other, finding common ground & truly enjoying the energy of new friendships was what BLEW ME AWAY! It would be IMPOSSIBLE for me to be able to experience this kind of amazing weekend vacation in ANY hotel, resort or ocean cruise environment. Nothing else can be said but THANK YOU FOR MAKING OUR WEEKEND IN AUSTIN THE BEST EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER HAD IN THIS OR ANY OTHER CITY!
