The Kingsley House is a known entity in Austin. Built in 1926 by Judge Kingsley for his daughter, Cora, who lived here for many years, the walls of this home could tell many stories. Besides housing a prominent citizen in its early days, it was later the home of a popular local artist; it's been an antique store; and it has even been a residence for senior citizens. But now it is the sanctuary for my little family, our peaceful abode just a block from downtown.

Brie has a beautiful home right off of downtown Austin. I was in town for a wedding and she was understanding that I might be in late due to wedding festivities. She also had a great little coffee bar for guests and a very friendly cat. We loved our stay.

Brie and her place were a treat, an older home but nicely decorated. Parking and check in went smooth. Brie's living room, kitchen and dining areas are open to her guests. I felt very welcome and enjoyed my brief stay.

Brie's house is far lovelier than the pictures show, and I can't imagine anyone feeling other than comfortable and at home here!

Brie’s home was very comfortable and a great location for Austin visitors or Route 90 travelers. Brie was very welcoming and clear with instructions. The house and room was ornately decorated with lots of cool amenities. One of the best AirBnBs I’ve stayed at.

My name is Brie and I'm a shy adventurer. I tend to be a homebody and work hard to make my home a peaceful oasis. But then I also like to get out from time to time to meet new people and explore new places. Mornings don't start without coffee and nights don't end without…
