March only: whole house to yourself! Access to comfy guest room with queen futon and über-soft sheets in a renovated 3/1 in central east Austin. Sweet kitchen: well stocked. 10-min walk to HEB grocery and cafe (with great Texas BBQ!).
The guest room pictured has very comfortable bed, wide bookshelf to unpack your suitcase into, and TV w/basic cable only. Bathroom has plenty of storage, at least one or two shelves all for you! Sofa in living room is great for both napping and reading, and the TV has Roku w/Hulu, Amazon, Netflix, Pandora and a DVD player. The kitchen is well-stocked as I like to cook a lot. I ask that you be careful with pots and pans, and vitamix/food processor. If not sure how to use, just ask! Backyard has fire pit (might need to buy your own wood) and chairs. The rest of the yard is in need of some landscaping.
I have two dogs, the little one tends to bark but both are very friendly. Also, boyfriend lives here (and is also very friendly) but not mentioned in previous reviews. He works at a nearby restaurant, late hours typically, but great at customer service should you need anything.
There is only one bathroom in the house. I will provide clean towels and fresh linens and can provide an extra toothbrush, etc if needed. Will provide any basic toiletry at your request.
Please use the kitchen --it's my favorite part of the house-- and any spices or condiments you may find. I typically run the dishwasher every 3 or 4 days, feel free to load plates and cups but hand wash all pots and pans (nonstick items require special care: no metal spatulas or steel wool please).
There's a farmers market just a couple miles away on Sunday mornings as well as the HEB grocery store (open till 10p)-- both are easily reached by foot or bike. I am happy to share cooking oil, eggs/milk/coffee as needed during your first few days while getting settled.
Like the rest of east Austin, this neighborhood is very bike-, bus-, and walk-friendly although rental cars are still most handy if you want to get to other part of Austin quickly. It's a 10-minute walk to bus routes to UT, downtown, Zilker Park, South Congress and anywhere in between. I'm about 15-20 minutes from the airport by car and 10-15 from downtown.
There's plenty of parking on street and a bike here for you to use anytime, it just might need air in tires as I rarely use it.
Please message me (or neighbors) if you need something you can't find, need a lunch recommendation, etc. I am usually quick to respond.

You'll have all the comforts of home: a keurig coffee maker, microwave, washer/dryer, flat-screen tv's (sorry, no fancy cable boxes), fire pit... Mi casa es su casa! I spend a lot of time in the kitchen; you should too!
Interaktion mit Gästen
We can interact as often as you need to, easiest via text if I'm not home. This listing is sometimes for the whole house; if so, the neighbors are available by text and in person if needed.
Weitere wichtige Infos
Must be dog-friendly as I have two pups. (Unless renting the whole house)
Because the neighborhood is family-friendly, minimizing loud music, etc. after 10pm is appreciated. Also, smoking is only ok outside if you dispose of butts properly (there's a trash can in laundry room).
Let me know anytime if the house is too cool or warm; feel free to adjust the AC if needed, just a hair in either direction usually does the trick!
South Texas girl. Will travel for food, coffee, cool breezes, yoga, water, music, mountains. Hablo Español. New house mates include boyfriend and 2 dogs, hence reduced nightly rate for those in need of a great deal!
