Oasis of peace in the middle of South Austin's vibrant Zilker/SOLA neighborhood. Steps from live music, cool restaurants, coffee shops and only 1-1/2 miles to SOCO, downtown or Zilker Park.

The space

Updated classic Arts & Crafts home with original architecture. A serene back yard filled with tall live oaks and over 50 species of native plants. Two large private bedrooms with luxurious queen beds and a roomy bathroom between. Both bedrooms have black-out shades for sleeping in after a late night. Large living room features extra long comfy sofa, flat panel TV, and a rocking chair. We have plenty of extra linens and quilts. You are welcome to make yourself at home and use the fully equipped modern kitchen with complimentary coffee and tea, French press, and microwave. Dining room has large round oak table that seats six and looks out onto back porch. Bug-free screened back porch to enjoy our peaceful back yard. There is also a private front sitting porch for smokers. You may use our laundry room too. Free high speed WiFi, over the air TV and Apple TV to receive Netflix, Hulu, iTunes, movies, etc.

Guest access

You will have access to the entire house and grounds except the detached music studio, which can also be rented to the same party for an additional fee. (If the house is rented first, we will not rent the studio to someone else while you are there.) The 300 square foot rehearsal and recording space has tall ceilings with acoustic panels and another couch, but no bath. Free onsite parking and street parking.

Interaction with guests

We will greet you personally to acquaint you with the house and grounds. We will be staying across the street and will be available as little or as much as needed. If you need anything, just call us. We will happily recommend restaurants, music venues, outdoor fun in Austin and the Hill Country, or whatever floats your boat.

Other things to note

Since we are in an ideal location for SXSW, Austin City Limits, and Formula 1 Racing, we must have a 3 night minimum during these peak times.
Airbnb collects a security deposit which is fully refundable if there are no damages. As required, we collect 15% State and local sales tax on arrival.

1. We are in the heart of the great Austin vibe, but we do have neighbors, so please be respectful of our neighbors and our home. Austin has a 10pm curfew for loud music and guests. We want you to have fun, and of course you may have guests, but if you are looking for a place for a blow out party, this is not it. 2. Smoking is OK outside or on the private front porch. Absolutely no tobacco products in the house please. 3. We love pets and small children, but are unable to accommodate them. 4. We have a 2 night minimum, except during SXSW (in March), ACL (in October) , and Formula One racing (in October). During these peak times, we have a 3 night minimum.

Marguerete and Jose were terrific hosts. They communicated quickly and met us at the house when we arrived to show us around. The house was impeccably clean and the pictures didn't do it justice. All I all, this was a great value.

Marguerete's place was cozy, convenient, and in a lovely neighborhood. It was great for a combo of business and leisure and a short drive from a lot of great restaurants and nice areas in Austin.

The Hallie House was just as described. The furnishings were cozy and the beds very comfortable. The location worked well for us - a short trip to get to downtown Austin but also a few bars & food trucks within walking distance of the house. Marquerete met us when we got to the house and she showed us around and explained some of the nuisances of the house. We called her one day to ask if she had a cooler we could use and she quickly brought us over 3 different ones to pick from. We would stay here again!

Response from Marguerete:
Sorry you were not able to come to our dinner party. We hoped to get to know you and your son better since he and Heather will be our neighbors. Jose knocked on your door to retrieve more forks for the party. We never invade the privacy of our guests. We are glad you enjoyed the patio. We love it too. Good news! We just got a notice from Airbnb that they are going to start collecting State Sales tax for the Austin area rentals beginning May 1, 2017, so we no longer have to collect tax on arrival. We didn't like that either.

I am experienced in the hospitality business, having owned a B&B in historic Jefferson, Texas. I also managed a fine dining restaurant there years ago. We have just returned to Austin after a five year absence and are very excited about our new location in the heart of Austin. Our goal is to make your visit to our home as comfortable and fun as possible.
