The space

This is our architecture/art studio when we don't have guests. Our home is industrial modern and we use it as an experiment for new innovative techniques. We hope you love it as much as we do.

We designed our house for entertaining and celebrations. It has industrial touches, which make it fairly easy to clean/low maintenance. Concrete floors, some paint splatter and the occasional work in progress is happening around the house. This allows for us to provide the best priced listing where luxury features meet easy going accommodations. Let us know if there is anything you are celebrating and we'll do our best to make your stay extra special.

Guest access

Private bedroom + bathroom. You will share a front door to the property, the living, kitchen ,dining and lounges and the sauna with us or other guests. Shared space is shared space. Private space is private space.

Interaction with guests

We love to meet people from all over! You don't have to interact with us but we'll probably be sad if you don't. But we're not needy- we mostly just want you to love our house and our city.

Other things to note

We have a dog, his name is Timber- he's a super duper friendly Irish Setter Mix.
If you have shellfish, dog or peanut allergies- bring the epi pen- haha! No, in all seriousness, please contact before you book. Thanks!

We really had a great time staying here - the pictures are really accurate and I think they're house is very hip. It was a nice mix of mid-century modern and contemporary (it reminded me of the Line Hotel in LA or a Palm Springs style home)! The house is walking distance to some nice restaurants and you can get into town very quickly too. More importantly, Taryn was an extremely helpful and accommodating host - I think that level of genuine hospitality is hard to find. I'd highly recommend anybody in Austin to stay here! ️️️️️

Response from Taryn:
Bryan, you are and were such a delight. It's such a pleasure to share our home and you made it even more of a joy than usual. We're absolutely flattered that you would compare us with such chic accommodations and continue to strive to push ourselves and use our home as a lab for those experiments. Hurry up and come back and visit!

We had a great stay with Taryn and Finn! The place is awesome and they are so friendly and we loved their local recommendations! The sauna was an added bonus that made it spa-like. Would love to stay again when back in Austin!

Taryn and Finn made our trip to Austin. From the moment we walked into their home, they made sure we felt welcomed and informed. After showing us their beautiful, modern, mind blowing house, they sent us off with wonderful food and entertainment recommendations that did not disappoint. They gave us space when we needed it and they welcomed our company. Austin is better for having these wonderful people in the city!!

Unfortunately we did not get to meet Taryn or Timber, but we had a fantastic stay! She was very clear on everything we needed to know and easy to contact. The place was awesome, especially the bathroom and sauna. We would definitely stay again and recommend.

I had a wonderful stay with Taryn. The suite is beautifully designed, impeccably clean, and super comfortable. I was only there for one night, but after several days of traveling, this suite was exactly what I needed to unwind, relax and feel rejuvenated. The hosts were very warm and inviting, and made me feel totally welcomed and comfortable. I would highly recommend this space!

Married to an Icelander, work in the commercial/film industry (designing props and sets and producing) and run an architecture firm with said Icelander (Finn S.). We adore our traveling adventures and getting to meet new people (especially our guests and hosts!)

We love the concept of AirBnB- we used to host travelers through Couchsurfing and now that we're older we love that we're able to still get to host great people but also find and provide a really comfy and lovely place to stay.
