About this listing

Our place is a perfectly situated landing pad for new arrivals. We are quick 15 minute drive to almost every corner of the city most of the time, and we love giving new Austinites a warm welcome. We are totally a smoke-free home.

Please note. In addition to the state hotel charge that AirBnB will collect, we must charge a 9% Occupancy Tax to the City of Austin. I will request this from you via AirBnB the first day of your stay. Any stay over 30 days is exempt.

The space

We are located right at the intersection of two major highways. Far enough so it's quiet, close enough for easy access. It's perfect for people coming to town for work and want to stay awhile before investing in an apartment lease or house. We are about 15 minutes from downtown Austin.

Guest access

As our guests, you have access to every part of our home, except our bedroom and the other guest room. Our home is your home while you are with us, so kick back on the couch, play some board games, sip coffee on the patio, cook massive meals, whatever you want. We just ask you clean up as you go.

Interaction with guests

I work 11-7, and I spend time away from the house. I'm usually available by text or email. Dan, my husband, works from home. He does keep irregular hours so, text works for him as well.

We are happy to have company, talk, play games, etc, and we are also happy to give you plenty of space and not hang out. Your choice.

Our two dogs are large and fuzzy, and they love company. They have decent manners, and they will always say yes to playing ball.

Other things to note

Please note. In addition to the state hotel charge that AirBnB will collect, we must charge a 9% Occupancy Tax to the City of Austin. I will request this from you via AirBnB the first day of your stay. Any stay over 30 days is exempt.

Long term rentals: If you stay more than one week, we will submit a $10 cleaning fee per week for the duration of your visit. This fee is submitted to the Resolution Center.

Breakfast: Every morning, we serve granola and yogurt, milk and muesli, or milk and cereal. We also keep a steady supply of healthy snacks and fruits to round out the meal. Coffee and tea are provided. If we have juice (rare), you are welcome to share!
Once you are done eating, please put your breakfast utensils and bowls into the washer if it's empty/dirty. If it's got soap in the soap drawer, you are good to go. No need to rinse them (unless you had peanut butter)

My stay at Amanda's home was spectacular. She communicated well, was very friendly, kept a clean home, and let me pet one of her foster pets. I would highly recommend this home to anyone in the Austin area.

Such a pleasant stay! It was my first time staying in Austin for a whole week, and I felt like I was right at home. If I'm ever in Austin again I will definitely be booking my stay here! Amanda and her husband are extremely friendly and funny! I had the chance to meet a couple of their friends too! Extremely nice people! My first air bnb experience was a success!

Amanda User ProfileAmanda is a superhost.

Born in Houston, raised in Austin, I spent a decade in the Northwest. My husband and I moved home to be close to my family. My husband and I love being hosts. Being from here, we are great guides to fun, cheap side of Austin, and we know where the best holes in the wall are for most types of food.
I love to cook, swim, and train animals.
