I'm Alan and I am a retired professor from Huston-Tillotson University. My fiance Suzy and I have interests in music, health, and spirituality and travel. We really enjoy hiking in the outdoors and know lots of trails here too. We have been in Austin for about 20 years and have a really nice community of friends here.
We enjoy people and are an easy going couple and because Air B n B has such a good reputation of screening the hosts and the applicants, we decided to give it a try. We are available most times during the year, especially during th Music and Film Festival and many other great Austin events. Austin is a wonderful city to explore and we can provide lots of information about the best places to visit, restaurants, small and large live theatre, parks, hikes, swimming, cultural amenities, as well as some of the most interesting nearby towns and state parks to visit. Life is Austin is quite exciting and also very peaceful, especially where we live. We are just a few minutes to the city and the river at Ladybird Lake that has a great new boardwalk for walking, hike n bike trails, all with a spectacular view. It's on the river and goes all the way to downtown and Zilker Park. Our place is homey, has a peaceful feel of being in the woods, surrounded by huge heritage trees and is on a quiet residential street with very little traffic. If this sounds like what you are looking for, please do get in touch with us. In the meantime, from our house to yours, have a wonderful day!
