Hardwood floors, open floor plans, kitchen and bathroom granite countertops, walk-in closet, a lovely patio with East Austin laid back and upbeat vibe! Wak to great spots in Austin, walk/ bike to UT! Guest bike, bus and a walking score of 95 too!

The space

The house is an amazing 3 bedroom-4 bath contemporary style residence in one of Austin's most sought after neighborhoods: Chestnut.
You will have your own fully furnished bedroom with attached bathroom. The kitchen, living room, and outside patio will be shared and is fully stocked and furnished.
The place is quiet, cool, tastefully decorated and safe. I live in the house but am so busy, you would hardly see me around !
Bars, restaurants and public transportation are within short walking distance hundred feet from the house.
You wont need a car at all unless you don't feel comfortable with public transport or biking. We'll provide you a bike and all information you'll need to have an awesome stay in Austin! We take great pride in hosting and show our love for Austin:)

If you're looking for a place to regroup when in town, this is the place for you!
And all I am looking for is someone who can treat this beautiful home as their own :-) Come enjoy life in beautiful Austin!

Guest access

Guests have access to a full kitchen, laundry, guest parking, bike and free wireless.

Interaction with guests

I am a full time health professional who loves to go out on weekends and on some evenings as well. I can be as helpful as you need me to while leaving you to enjoy the place all by yourself. There's a lot of information about public transportation, nearby restaurants, bars and delivery places available.

Other things to note

Our two 14 and 11 year old Boxer/Labrador mix dogs stay downstairs in a gated area by the kitchen. We love them and they get our full attention with daily walks and hikes on weekends.
But they won't be upstairs to keep ours and your area clean and prevent allergies.

We appreciate if you choose to smoke outside in the patio. There's a large outdoor patio right upfront next to your bedroom/bathroom. Unfortunately pets can't stay in the apt due to our 2 lab mix dogs...

I don't wear shoes upstairs in the house to reduce the cost and time spent cleaning, especially carpet and area rugs. I'd appreciate if you could help offset maintenance costs too:)
You can leave your shoes downstairs by the front door or by the stairway whatever your more comfortable:)

You're free to use washer and dryer, fridge and adjust aircon. Please don't forget to turn aircon/heat off once you leave if you decide to change settings.

My ideal guest is someone who will treat the apartment as their own :-)

Nicky's place is actually fantastic. The photos shown on here really do no justice to the interiors of the house and how comfortable yet luxurious the place feels. Nicky's communication throughout my 10-day stay was perfect. She met every need I possibly could have had and had some fantastic recommendations of places to visit and events to attend during my stay! The bedroom is so cosy, and the balcony makes a lovely place to sit and relax after a day out in the sun. The area is incredibly quiet, even when cars are passing by you really won't hear it from inside the bedroom. The bathroom is fully kitted with everything you could possibly need to use but may have forgotten or, like me, didn't have the check baggage weight allowance for! Getting an uber from the house into downtown (and back, even at silly times of the night) was unbelievably cheap too, and almost as easy as simply driving yourself in. I truly can't recommend this place enough, and it's an absolute bargain for what you get!

Nicky was a perfect host: very helpful in terms of providing guidance ahead of my arrival and during my stay - with lots of good suggestions for places to visit and to eat: the house is set in a friendly safe area and well located for down-town Austin: the whole experience was a pleasure

I was immediately made to feel welcome at Nicky's place. She had food in the fridge, a number of fresh towels in the bathroom and a great selection of tourist information available. Nicky invited me out to one of Austin's best craft beer places and I definitely felt at ease staying in her place. It was a very easy to get to with a cab from the airport costing $30 including tip. The area is brilliant and I was able to walk around most of the city without much trouble. Rainey Street itself has some great bars which are very relaxed and a great place to grab a bite to eat. I used the bikes a few times and they are suitable for getting around on the nearby lake pathway as well as through downtown. Having access to a bike meant I was able to get by without feeling like I needed a car. OVERALL I would happily stay in this place again and have already recommended it to a friend who is thinking of coming to Austin

I fell in love with Austin during my few days there and Nicky's wonderful hospitality definitely helped! She has a beautiful, comfortable home in a great location and she was great to communicate with right from the beginning with heaps of local tips and ideas for activities. Couldn't recommend Nicky and her hospitality highly enough!
