Enjoy Austin while staying in a beautiful, clean, modern home in a wonderful, walk-able neighborhood. The open concept living space and large outdoor patio with fire pit and hammocks are perfect for relaxing at the end of the day. This is East Austin at its finest!

The space

Enjoy Austin while staying in this beautiful, fun, creative 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom house located a few short blocks from Downtown Austin.

Walk out the front door into a vibrant Eastside neighborhood with local restaurants, dive bars and historic institutions such as The Victory Grill, a legendary juke joint from the 1930's. It's a short walk to downtown and the East 6th St. music scene. There's easy access to downtown, UT campus and F1 by bus, walking, pedi-cab, bike or taxi. The airport is 15 minutes away, and sometimes I'm able to help with pick-up and drop-off.

You will love the house, it's modern and eclectic. The large guest room is upstairs and has a huge window and lots of light. There are two queen beds, a desk and shelves. Your personal bathroom is right next door to your room. The open concept living space is perfect for entertaining and enjoying a meal.

The front yard has custom landscaping with enormous agave, cactus and other native plants. There is a large private backyard and patio with a fire pit, hammocks and lounge chairs.

The house is equipped with high speed wi-fi.

Sorry, no visiting pets. Riley the cat and Sage the dog are already in residence, so we're at capacity! The pets are very friendly and respectful (no jumping on guests.)

Guest access

In addition to their private room and bathroom, guest are welcome to use the public areas of the house: living room, dining room, kitchen and outdoor areas.

Interaction with guests

I follow my guest's lead in terms of interaction. I have had guests come to Austin for business, and they just needed a quiet place to unwind at the end of the day. On the other end of the spectrum, I've hosted Icelandic folk singers who wanted me to show them around East Austin, and we hung out every night.

What AirBNB should be! The room was comfortable and spacious. The bed and pillow were better than home. Everything was perfect. The location is in a quiet but trendy area. 2 blocks away was a quant restaurant and best BBQ. Most time I walked downtown because it was so nice. An uber was only $5 and arrived in minutes. Sage (the dog) was awesome. Loving and quiet. Loved to be petted but never pushy

Robin's home is in such a great location in East Austin! Everything was just a short walk or drive away, and it was very easy to get to and from the airport, too. Robin was graciously flexible with our early check-in time and she offered great recommendations for food and sights in the city. The house was super clean, bed was incredibly comfy, private bathroom was stellar. Her pets are really friendly too. Riley, her cat, hung out with us at times. :) We felt welcome in Robin's home and really enjoyed our week-long stay. Thanks, Robin!!

Robin was a warm and inviting host and I enjoyed staying in her lovely home. She accommodated my early/late hours and provided breakfast goodies so I wouldn't leave hungry. I will definitely stay here again!

Loved staying at Robin's. The place is super clean, well stocked. Her yard and patio are really cute. And her collection of books is remarkable - indicating how well travelled she is. Loved how well stocked her bathroom was - even had a curling iron!

Staying with Robin is a delight! She is a very nice person and a great host. She knows the best places in town and gives helpful advice. There are pets in the house but they are well behaved and provide an even better relaxing environment. Her place is very nice, super clean and comfortable. The room is very cozy and big enough a long stay. Very close to local places and walking distance from downtown. If you plan to go and eat at Franklin's BBQ , Robin's place is the one to chose. Only blocks away!!! We will go again to Austin and we also know where we are going to stay again.

Great, comfortable place in a great location. Most of the stuff we wanted to do in Austin was a mile or less away from Robin's house. Many good eateries and bars close by. The house is clean, the bed is comfortable, and the bedroom is quiet and private. Out on the street, we heard some faint sounds of live music (which is par for the course when staying in Austin) but you couldn't hear anything when you were trying to get to sleep, which was nice. The dog and cat are an added bonus - super chill and fun to pet! Robin was nice enough to offer us coffee in the mornings and chat with us about our time in Austin. It's worth keeping in mind that there's only one bathroom (which was very clean), but this wasn't an issue for us and I doubt it would be for any individual or couple staying here. Overall, a very enjoyable visit and a good value.

Robin User ProfileRobin is a superhost.

Some of my favorite experiences in life occurred when I was traveling around the world, and now I welcome the chance to host other travelers in my home in Central East Austin. I've had the good fortune to live and work in Vienna, Tel Aviv, Tai Pei, and Bergama, Turkey. My favorite travel destinations have been Thailand and India (Goa is at the top of my list.) I have tried to create a "mini-Goa" in my backyard with hammocks and a relaxing vibe. Alas, no Indian Ocean is nearby but Barton Springs is a 10 minute bike ride and Town Lake is even closer.

Please feel free to contact me with questions about the house and neighborhood. I've hosted musicians for SXSW since 2010, and it has been a lot of fun!
