A charming room with private entrance. The bedroom is in the back of the house with its own walkway and entrance and has a great mix of natural light and shade from the trees.

You’ll love it here for the quiet and serene atmosphere. My place is good for solo adventurers or frequent visitors to Austin who would enjoy a peaceful place to rest or meditate after a long day.

The space

The house is in walking distance to about 2 dozen restaurants / bars / coffee shops, a few blocks away from the UT football stadium and campus, and about 2 miles from downtown... yet tucked away in the nice and quiet neighborhood of Cherrywood (aka French Place).
The room has a somewhat secluded feel because of the trees and how it's in the back of the house away from the street.
Lots of beautiful bird songs throughout the day.

Guest access

Driveway is yours. From there, follow the fence towards the back of the house. The back door is your entrance. You enter into the shared kitchen and your room is on the right. There is a Jack and Jill style bathroom with privacy doors on both sides. You'll find the washer and dryer in the larger closet in your room.

Interaction with guests

I am not home very much, but always a text message away if you should need something or have any questions.

Other things to note

There are pets that live on the property however they are not in shared spaces during your stay.
Charlie Bear is a 18 yr old Teacup Yorkie and Misty is a 16 yr old Snowshoe, they are sleeping in my room the majority of the day. You probably would have no idea that they are present.

Please no smoking in the house.

Richards house is located in a friendly quiet neighborhood. It took me approx. 1.5 hours to walk downtown sight seeing along the way but its very easy to Uber or Cab for under $15. I would totally reccommend this location and the host who was very helpful with my stay. The room and back yard have a great energy as described and there was plenty of privacy if you desire.

Richard was very welcoming and nice! everything impecable in the house, even equipped with some snacks in case i wanted to eat something. I had basically the house to my own because he wasnt allways at home. I strongly recommend it!

Richard's place was perfect for a quick visit to Austin. He was very responsive during the booking process. The house was very clean and had a good vibe about it. Would recommend staying here if you'reinterested in a very solid, low-key location. Would stay here again.

Charming room, very comfortable. The yard was beautiful with several seating areas in different spots of shade, so you can lounge and not burn! Great neighborhood, close to many yummy restaurants and fun bars.

Richard's place was great! I enjoyed the room because it had lots of windows and a really comfortable bed. It was also close to a bunch of great restaurants! 10/10 would recommend.
