Tucked in a surprisingly secluded neighborhood just east of IH-35, my home is a very pleasant single bedroom unit in a triplex built in the '50s. It's a 10 minute walk from both downtown and East Austin nightlife.

The space

The house is in a very desirable East Austin neighborhood where you can walk to the best that the city has to offer. Downtown, East Austin, Cherrywood, and UT are all short walks away.

Beautiful hardwood floors, charming kitchen details by a professional interior designer, hand-built dining table, premium Four Hands couches, very comfortable full-sized bed.

I'm a full-time work from home writer, so the space is comfortable for working. Also, I DJ and play electronic music, so there are turntables and a small recording studio that are both fairly unobtrusive.

Guests have access to all areas, except turntables and music equipment.

I will not be present during your stay, but hope to greet you on arrival and offer suggestions on fun things to do.

The neighborhood's best features are walkability, charming mix of modern and older houses, and nearby local businesses.

In terms of getting around, I'm not very knowledgeable about the bus system, but you shouldn't need to use it much. There is street parking and one parking spot in the driveway. The airport is a 20 minute car ride away. Austin recently lost Uber/Lyft, but several alternatives (Fasten) have taken their place. Car2Go and B-Cycle bike share are other great transportation options.

Other things to note

There is no central heat, temperature is regulated by space heaters and window unit AC. They actually work very well, but require a bit of explanation that I will give at the time of booking.

Dan was very lovely and his apartment was cool but also homely. When we had a small issue, he came straight over to help us out and was great to talk to. The apartment was well equipped and stocked, was cool when it was hot outside, and was very comfortable to relax in. The neighbours are very friendly and it is close to lots of great places in East Austin, and easily accessible to the University and downtown areas. I would definitely stay again!

Couldn't have had a better experience staying at Dan's place. I was in town for a conference and was able to get everywhere I needed to be by walking (or the occasional 6 dollar Uber ride.) Very centrally located near great dining options (Micklethwait, Quickie PIckie, Hillside Farmacy) and a whole bunch of cool shops on 11th st. and beyond. The apartment itself was well appointed, clean, quiet and safe. If you like coffee and cocktails, Dan can certainly help you out there. The internet was super fast and I was able to work through the day with no hiccups. A+. Would definitely stay again.

For our stay in Austin, Dan's space was perfect. Walkable to all areas we were interested in. (east 6th, downtown, and UT) The pictures for the apartment don't do the space justice. The place is much bigger, super cozy... we felt at home. Won't stay anywhere else when we visit Austin again! Cheers to Dan for the welcome beers when we arrived!

Dan's place was great, in a nice quiet residential neighborhood with about a 15 to 20 minute walk downtown. Communication was very good and we enjoyed our stay!

Dan's place is easy to reach, close to downtown, and spacious for one or two. Kitchen is very well stocked with cooking equipment; no dishwasher or garbage disposal unfortunately, but Dan has a good set up to handle dishes. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Dan's!
