Where you’ll be

Austin, Texas, United States

Hyde Park is considered one of the best neighborhoods in Central Austin and is safe, with a peaceful vibe. There is a concentration of traditional Bed & Breakfast spots close by and the area around the house is filled with great things to eat, see and do. If you are hungry (or thirsty!) there are some fabulous cafes and restaurants such as Asti Trattoria, Mothers Cafe & Garden, Dolce Vita Espresso Bar, Hyde Park Bar & Grill and Julio's Mexican Cafe. Quack's Bakery on 43rd St is good for a breakfast muffin and there are delicious smoothies at the local Daily Juice Cafe. Antonelli's Cheese Shop, a haven for cheese lovers is minutes away from my door. Avenue B Deli & Grocery around the corner is the oldest operating grocery store in Austin, as well as the longest-established business. The grocery makes wonderful sandwiches, including the popular king combo (meat and cheese) and the and the Queen B (a vegetarian special). In the winter, there is fresh soup daily and a pot of chili of Saturdays. If you require a bigger grocery, the best Fresh Plus in town is only three blocks away and Central Market and HEB have locations within walking distance as well. A few blocks north, new spots are creating a buzz on North Loop including inventive culinary creations at Foreign & Domestic and the hidden gem - The Tigress Pub - which serves some of the best cocktails in town and for a price that is just right.

The Hyde Park Theater is close by as well as live music at Vino Vino Wine bar on Mondays and Tuesday as well as weekly serenades at New World Deli. Shipe Park is very close, with tennis courts, open fields for frisbee or kicking a ball, basketball court, a pool (in the summer) and a jungle gym that is great for all the kids in the hood and I often ride my bike to the Hike and Bike Trail that borders the downtown portion of the river.

I am originally from New Orleans, Louisiana but moved to Austin, Texas in 2005 following a very historic hurricane in my hometown. I never thought I would move to Texas, but Austin is really special and I love living in the Hyde Park neighborhood. I co-host for friends and neighbors all over town (and in New York City as well as New Orleans!), so please let me know if I can help as a co-host, to manage cleaning, or to just be a back up when needed. I am 53 years old and have worked for the University of Texas at Austin for over a decade. I have helped many visiting professors, Fulbrights and other scholars with 3-6 month stays for their visiting scholars, professors and researchers on international exchanges. I also keep in the know about large conventions coming to town and co-host for folks downtown. I spent a good portion of my early career working in Europe and Asia and lived in London in my 20s and early 30s, so carry both US and British passports. I have travelled a lot over the years and look forward to meeting you and making sure your time here is peaceful and enjoyable. I enjoy hosting more than any other job I have (other than motherhood!), so I hope to hear from you soon. All the best, Margo
