The space

NOTE: If dates are shown as available, don't hesitate to instant book. I keep my calendar up to date. If the dates are not available, message me because I have several other listings.

If you have ever wanted to have backyard chickens or want to see how urban gardening is done in Texas, this is the place to stay! Stay for a long weekend while you visit Austin or make this your landing spot while you get permanently settled into Austin. The house is equipped with full kitchen if you are wanting to cook up some fresh eggs from the chickens for breakfast.

One bedrooms, with full bed will accommodate up to two people comfortably. I have a second guest room if you have more people in your party. I also rent entire house (4 bedrooms) to parties of 6+ people. See listings under my profile.

Take the bikes for spin around Lady Bird Lake or relax in the backyard with the chickens Dixie, Delta Burke, Blanche, & Rose (named after favorite sitcoms Golden Girls and Designing Women).

We loved staying in Angel's place - it's very comfortable, well decorated, and in a great location. Angel made checking in very easy. Would recommend.

We had a great stay at Angel's place! It was really comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. Angel was helpful and around for the occasional chat, but mostly was doing her own thing. We were able to use the kitchen to cook for ourselves with no problems, which was great. Useful things like towels and hairdryer were provided, and the house was quiet and calm. We met a couple of other nice travellers too, but generally had the space to ourselves. We also borrowed bicycles for free, which were extremely useful for getting around! Angel also has a lovely garden and jolly hens. An all round good time.

If you like quirky then this is for you. Eclectic mix of decor, even an outdoor shower- but there is the usual bathroom as well! Walking distance to the state capital and sixth street for the music lovers. Bit of a long walk to see the bats at congress avenue bridge but worth it.

It's also in a good location an easy walk to good bars & places to eat. Angel gave us some great recommendations, things to see & places to eat etc it made our time in Austin even better to have some great local knowledge. I can recommend Austin & Angels place 100%!

Angel was a delightful host who went out of her way to make me as welcome and comfortable as possible. Entry was always easy and painless, great location not far from Franklins BBQ and some good bars. Would stay again without hesitation.

I love sharing my home with friends and strangers alike. I've lived in Austin for 13 years and am happy to point you to spots off the beaten path (Cathedral of Junk) to the sparkling jewels in the middle of the city (Barton Springs). I'm a User-Experience Designer for a Clean Tech/Energy Management start-up. I love the challenge and rewards of conserving in all aspects of life. I enjoy bike riding, brewing and drinking craft beer, gardening, petting my chickens, sewing and DIY projects, seeing live music, traveling, and eating great food. I've only been to 13 countries and 25 states. I most recently spent a few months in Hawaii living off grid on a living farm that is doing reforestation on the Big Island.
