*note: I prefer stays of 1-3 months, but will happily consider shorter stays of 2+ days.
My house kinda' represents Old School South Austin in the most coveted zip code. Still hip and weird, but a dying breed my pier and beam house built in '51 is on an acre lot that's still a little 'wild' in some parts. Convenient for most stays as it is close to downtown, SoCo, and most festivals.

The space

Sunny little bedroom in south Austin home. There's a comfy queen bed, an empty dresser and room in the closet so you can settle in. The bathroom is shared by me for shower purposes. I have a toilet upstairs in my bedroom area. All guests are welcome to use the office space as much as they like. The shared living area has an HD TV with 'premium' cable and Roku streaming. I share my home with 2 cats. Generally, they amuse and don't bother. This full acre property has WiFi, off street parking, and a terrific double patio 'breezeway'. Smoking is allowed in the outdoor living spaces. Here you can chill, listen to music, have a glass of wine or quaff a beer on a warm afternoon. We are three short blocks from the nearest bus stop with a 7 min. ride to Auditorium Shores and 10 min. to downtown and the Convention Center. We're also 9 blocks from S Congress bus with a 5 min. ride to all the SOCO attractions. I might be available for airport pick-up / drop-off (about 12 ride) if needed for a nominal charge. My house and I are both a work in progress. I have not yet completed all the intended renovations, but there's nothing that would make one uncomfortable. I am open to any questions or special requests you may have to make your stay in Austin as fabulous as possible.

Hi there. In general, I really just require common courtesy. I feel most comfortable with a free flow of communication with my guests about schedules, needs and anything else that fosters a harmonious cohabitation. I also require ecologically minded compliance when it comes to recycling, composting, and water and electrical use. Simply put, just throw recyclables in the bin and don't leave stuff on when not in use, etc... I would also prefer someone who does not have a noisy morning routine ( late night doesn't bother me).

The room is lovely, the bed is very comfortable, Lenore is a wonderful hostess, and the cats are extremely well behaved. I can highly recommend staying in Lenore's house. The neighbourhood is quiet, and only a 15 minute walk to great places to eat and see live music. You can walk to downtown in half an hour, or get a bus easily from South 1st. Lenore knows Austin like the back of her hand, and is full of great recommendations.

Lenore is a marvelous host. I moved to Austin and booked a stay at her place. It was my first ever destination in this city & she was so welcoming. Her happy hour list alone was worth every penny spent. Lenore was there at any hour I needed, and was even there when I cried of homesickness. She's one of a kind, for sure ❤️

The bedroom and bathroom are exactly as shown in the photos. Clean and comfortable. The outside is a bit cluttered and looks a bit like a yard sale, but inside is fine. Lenore is available and accommodating. She will make great recommendations for food and happy hour places. Be aware that you will be sharing the bathroom with the host and there are two cats.

What an amazing experience this was. Fell in love with Austin, Lenore and her beautiful abode. Was in Town for a film festival at Alamo Drafthouse. This was an amazing location. Walking/biking distance to everything I needed. Great food/drinks nearby. Lenore will lead you in the right direction for everything you need, especially tips on the best happy hours in town. Her neighbors are awesome. Her cats are awesome. She was awesome. Not to mention she keeps the place clean and fresh. Loved my bedroom. This was the best AirB&B experience I've ever had. Thanks Lenore!!

Lenore is a gracious host! I was looking for an apartment in Austin and I found a suitable place on the second day, so I only stayed here for one night. But, from my short stay, I can say that it's a great house in a great location and you couldn't ask for a better host than Lenore!

I had a great stay over the summer at Lenore's. The house and room are nice and she's very accommodating, and knows tons of cool stuff to do in Austin, so definitely good if you want some tips on what to do in town.

I am an airforce/airline 'brat', so I've traveled a lot and definitely plan to do it a lot more. I came to Austin to attend UT over three decades ago. Like many, I decided to make Austin my home, or at least my home base. Early on I left Austin to live on South Padre Island for 2…
