Where you’ll be

Austin, Texas, United States

The house is on a quiet street in East Austin between 11th and 12th on Comal. There are plenty of bars, restaurants, shopping and groceries nearby. The location is a 5 minute cab ride, or 15-20 minutes biking & walking distance to downtown, the university, local eateries, bars and food trailers: Franklin BBQ, Hillside Farmacy, East Side Pies, East End Wines, Eastside King, Qui, (Paul Qui winner of Top Chef), and more.

I have lived in East Austin for 16 years and love the thriving artist, urban gardening, DIY community. The neighborhood is within close proximity to downtown, South Austin, UT and all the other hip central places to visit.

East Austin is where you will find amazing food, all kinds of art, music, DIY house shows, loose chickens and wylie and friendly neighbors to talk to. Airbnb has a great East Austin neighborhood guide.

If you don't feel safe in a neighborhood where people don't look like you or all the houses are not yet gentrified, then this listing might not be for you.

I enjoy sharing my home with friends and strangers alike. Everyone is welcome! I have lived in Austin since 2001 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 enjoy bike riding, fermenting foods, foraging and growing culinary mushrooms, making wine from foraged fruit, gardening, petting my chickens, sewing and DIY projects, seeing live music, traveling, and eating great food.
