A retro modern home, fit for the Jetsons! Private room with desk and view of the park. Shared bathroom, access to steam sauna and free range of the open liv. , kitch. and dine. (shared with us, Taryn & Finn, and our benevolent dog-Timber). Free caffeine and welcome toast!

MLK Tram station (1/2 a mile away). Downtown (3 miles) but directly on a quiet park + creek (crickets and frogs and fireflies at night). Bus line 20 is 2 min walk ($1.25 to downtown!)

The space

This house was designed for entertaining and celebrations. Take a quiet stroll on the creek in our front yard and recoup or enjoy the local haunts and dance til you drop (at only 3 miles to downtown this is easy to do). Let us know if there is anything you are celebrating and we'll do our best to make your stay extra special.

Guest access

Make yourself at home in the shared spaces! You'll have your own private code to enter the front door to come and go as you please after check in.
We sometimes rent the other rooms, but they will all have their own unique access code but shared spaces are still shared. Private spaces are still private.

Interaction with guests

We're available at any time. We're in the other side of the house and can be a social or scarce as you like. We'd like to welcome you with a glass of wine/coffee/tea/beer and walk you through how things operate and give you any tips on your travels (if wanted) but after that- just enjoy the run of the house!

Other things to note

We have a dog, his name is Timber- he's a super duper friendly Irish Setter Mix but will be kept to the other side of the partitioned house. If you'd like to bring your lovely creature, we request that you rent the whole house or contact us for different rates because he's not super great with other dogs so we'd need to make other arrangements.

Taryns place was awesome! It was clean, the kitchen and shower were amazing. S/O to timber, the sweet dog. Thanks!

Taryn, Finn and their very friendly dog Timber were great! Tons of suggestions for great brunch, restaurants, and places to see while I was in town. A straight shot into downtown if you have a car. Will stay here again next time I'm in Austin!

Thanks Sam! It was great to have you. We're also .1 mi to the bus stop and .7 mi to the tram. About 2.7 mi to downtown. Austin doesn't market these other modes of transport well but we think they're great features. Happy travels back to Oregon!

My favorite airbnb experience to date. Taryn, Finn and Timber (the dog) are gracious and awesome. The house reflects the duo's (minus Tiber) design-savvy labor of love. Terrific spot in a neighborhood that is fast-becoming one of Austin's hot spots, down the greenway from Mueller Control Tower. Highly recommend.

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.
