The space

Choose our casa as your home base for ACL, SXSW, a special retreat, or just any weekend. Our house was one of 10 homes chosen for the City of Austin's 2013 "COOL House Tour", a display of Eco-homes with green building practices. Our home is located one mile from downtown and only 10 blocks from the Austin Convention Center (main venue for SXSW and other major conferences and conventions), just off of Cesar Chavez. Zilker park, the main venue for ACL is just 3 miles away. The Circuit of the Americas Formula 1 track is only 12 miles away. Our house offers a direct route to both Zilker Park and the Formula 1 track without passing thru downtown or highway I-35, so you can avoid all the famous Austin traffic. From our house you can walk 5 blocks to the beautiful Lady Bird Lake Hike and Bike trail, locally known as Town Lake. We are also 5 blocks from Fiesta Gardens, a local venue for many events including the annual Pachanga! Latino Music Festival and the local lowrider shows.

Visit our beautiful 1800 sq ft. custom home with 20 foot ceilings, japanese soaking tub with jacuzzi, vintage salvaged doors and indoor graffiti mural. The house has 4 bedrooms, 2 large bathrooms, huge industrial kitchen, open floorplan, wi-fi internet, and sound system. In addition to ample street parking we have a covered drive way with space for 2 cars, front and back spacious porches and an outdoor hammock for two. We are a few blocks from bars and restaurants, a pedicab station and bike rental spot. From here you can get to all the downtown venues by walking, biking or via pedicab. You can also walk to Town Lake for the hike and bike trail, kayaking or canoeing.

We recently designed and built our own home with finished plywood floors, corrugated metal roof and ceiling, salvaged doors and fixtures as well as sinks, tiles and political art from our Latin American travels. We love our neighborhood and can help orient you to the great local spots to eat, drink, run or and/or hang out. Check out the photos and let us know if you are interested. Security deposit required. We are looking for folks who will enjoy and take care of our home!

Paula's home was fantastic for the work trip that brought me to Austin. The space is beautiful and unique, and Paula was lovely to deal with throughout our stay.

Paula is great. She was very flexible with the check-in process, as well as the check-out process. The place is actually nicer than what some of the photos show... quirky but trendy and very comfortable. Her place is steps away from 6th street and has plenty of space to set up…

I stayed at Paula's beautiful home while on a job at SxSW. Paula was a WONDERFUL host and very accommodating! She knew we were a big group so she offered to meet us at the airport so that half the group could ride with me to her home in my rental car while the other half rode wit…

Paula's eco-house is a truly unique place to stay and clearly a labour of love. It was a perfect home from home for our stay in Austin and we loved the vibe of the whole neighbourhood. Paula and her partner Eric went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and w…
