Private room in our modern home located in a tranquil neighborhood in south Austin. Our backyard backs up to a large wooded park. Enjoy the patio while gazing at the large oak trees. Nearby is a playground, hiking trails and creek. Close proximity to shopping (South Park Meadows), restaurants, and freeways for easy access to downtown, Zilker Park, Barton Springs, & South Congress shops & night life. There are two bus stops within approximately 1 mile walk.

The space
We are a pet-friendly household and have 3 indoor cats who mostly ignore strangers and two Border collie mix dogs, one of whom loves all humans, dogs, and cats (the other takes time to warm up to strangers).

Guest access
Feel free to use the kitchen, dining room, living room, family room, game room, backyard, and balcony. You are welcome to cook in the kitchen, store labeled food in our fridge, and upon request we will have coffee and/or tea for you in the mornings. We are not early risers and prefer to stay up late at night. We are non-smokers and do not allow any smoking inside or on the outside premises. There is a hot tub on the patio but due to liability concerns, guests are not allowed to use it. Our game room includes a pool/ping pong table that you are welcome to enjoy.

Other things to note
Our young adult son lives with us when not in college. If he's at home, guests will be sharing a bathroom with him.

My husband, Donnell, and I are both self-employed (I'm a counselor and he's a piano teacher) and we mostly work afternoons/evenings. We love to get to know new people but if you prefer privacy, we'll make ourselves scarce. Our 20-yr-old son hangs out in his room writing/playing music when he's home, but also works and attends college. Feel free to play our grand piano or hang out with our dog or any of our 4 sometimes affectionate but mostly aloof cats. Our house is a short walk to Mary Moore Searight Park with hiking trails, deer, and a creek running through it. Only 3/4 mile to Southpark Meadows shopping center.

We are always able to respond to questions/concerns via text/phone. Both of us are self-employed with variable schedules, but generally I work weekday afternoons and my husband works evenings. One of us is typically available if you need anything.
