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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
