Other things to note
NO early check in. Self check in is at 4:00. Our housekeepers are scheduled and we want to make sure that the house is clean and ready for you. We are taking COVID precautions and are maximizing the time in between guests, thus no early check-in.

Look for the "B" to the left of the wood front door. This is your rental.

NO PETS ALLOWED ON THE PROPERTY. NO EXCEPTIONS.

NO PARTIES ALLOWED.

ONLY RESERVED GUESTS ARE ALLOWED ON THE PROPERTY.

This is a shipping container tiny house. The goal is to maximize the space and decrease clutter so that the floor plan remains open.

If you need to work on your laptop, you may sit on the West Elm leather couch, there are MULTIPLE patio chairs AND a picnic table and there is a bed in the loft that you may work from. There is no desk or chair in the container house because we felt that having some luggage space on the floor where a desk and chair might have been placed made more sense logistically.

If you need to work at a desk, there are several super cool coffee shops (Bennu, Sour Duck, BATCH Brewery, Houndstooth, Cherrywood Coffee House, Oddwood Brewery) around that will provide a great work space for you. Lots of folks prefer just to work from the couch or the picnic table.

Paper towels are provided.

Toilet paper is provided.

There is a small trash can in the bathroom.

There are multiple bath towels, face towels and hand towels in the cabinets above the kitchen sink.

There are TWO large gray trash cans and a LARGE blue recycle bin within 4 feet of the exterior container house door. There is a bathroom and kitchen trashcan. The exterior trash cans are for overflow.

You are not expected to take the trash out, we just simply needed to provide overflow receptacles.

There is hand soap dispenser in the kitchen and there is hand soap in the bathroom.

There are extra blankets above the microwave.

The loft bed will have a folded blanket and a folded flat sheet positioned on top of the bed.

The new Dyson cool/heat fan is downstairs. The remote is attached to the top of the unit.

If it is cold outside, set the Dyson heat at 69 degrees at a level 1 fan speed and leave the upstairs Mitsubishi system off unless it is super cold. If super cold turn on the big Mitsubishi system via the white module by the microwave and set to 63-64. Hot air rises, so I would use the Dyson first then turn the big Mitsubishi unit on second if needed.

Sleeps 4 people. 2 in the loft and 2 downstairs.

The West Elm couch is a futon. We have a brand new memory foam mattress topper that can be placed over the leather futon surface. Let us know if you need the topper and we leave it in the tiny house,

WIFI provided. TV has Amazon Firestick with access to Netflicks, Hulu, HBO etc.

Fire extinguisher is under the kitchen sink and a second one is under the outdoor couch by the back door of the main house.

Location

Austin, Texas, United States

Considered downtown EAST SIDE. 2 miles to I-35.

Cool bars and restaurants on Manor Road, The Mueller, Cesar Chavez and East 6th, 7th, 11th Street, 12th Street! 5-10 minute Uber/LYFT ride. Pickup time is usually about 3-4 minutes unless there are large events like SXSW or Austin City Limits Music Festival occurring downtown. Then, pick times will be delayed.

These establishments are the the closest:
BATCH Kolaches & Brewery is within 0.6 miles. Contigo is a restaurant/bar that is just on the other side of BATCH. It's more of a tapas type of place. Great drinks, beer and wine. Oddwood Ales is within 0.7 miles. They have GREAT pizza too!

UBER EATS, Postmates, FAVOR, Dominos delivers!

Sonic, Whataburger, Taco Bell, Popeyes, Terry's Seafood are 0.3 miles away.

There is a cemetery on Tillery Street. Tillery Street is the street that you can take to get over to BATCH Brewery. Our property does not directly sit next to the cemetery. There are some pretty famous people buried in there!

I moved to Austin in 1998. This was THE best move that I ever made and feel extremely fortunate to have ended up in this music and art oasis. When I travel, I like to blend in with the locals. I'll help you do just that here in Austin. I have a hands off approach, but am just down the street if you need anything. The scene here inspires me and feeds my soul. My favorite time of year is during events like South By Southwest, Austin City Limits Music Festival, EAST Austin Studio Tour and WEST Austin Studio Tour. The energy here is unexplainable. I love living so close to Town Lake and the hike & bike trail. The new downtown boardwalk over the river is AMAZING! This is truly a paradise. I am also addicted to trying out new restaurants. Honestly, there are so many places to eat here that I don't know if I will ever be able to hit them all. I do frequent Alamo Drafthouse for movies, great beer and the spicy blue burger. I really could go on and on about how in love I am with this city!
