The space

This architect-designer home was remodeled in 2011, merging the charm of it's original 40's bones with a contemporary update.

The home has 2 available bedrooms plus a third bedroom/office, and can host up to 6 guests; 1 queen-sized bed, 1 queen air mattress, 1 twin bed and 1 amazingly cozy couch.

Interaction with guests

We are busy with work and travel, so may not be home except in the evenings, and aside from sharing a beer now and again, will let you feel at home while you're here!

Our dog, Penny, lives here too. She's an incredibly friendly pup that loves people, and can either get to know you or be kept away depending on your preference. We've had guests ask for snuggle sessions, and she's happy to oblige!

I stayed here with a group of graduate students in town for a conference at UT. We got to campus for ~$8 each way, but there are also bus routes nearby. Their dog, Penny, is even cuter in person! Make sure to check out the Cherrywood Coffeehouse, only a short walk away from the house. I would highly recommend Libby's house for anyone visiting Austin!

Libby and Peter's place is charming, comfortable, and very "Austin." My husband and I were there for two nights, and we would go back again in a heartbeat. Libby and Peter made us feel very welcome and recommended some great dining spots. We had a lovely stay!
