Big, big house just 6 miles from downtown Austin and just 4 miles from the airport. Free washer/dryer, wireless internet, spacious backyard, cozy family/TV room, awesome roommates and we all love Austin :)
Guest bedroom in our 4 bedroom house in East Austin, just 15 minutes from downtown and just 5 minutes from the airport. Guests will share the a bathroom with one of my roommates. Guests will also share the rest of the house with a total of 3 roommates (including me!)
The bed in the room is very comfy and the rest of the house is very spacious and welcoming.
House features include WiFi, washer & dryer, very spacious backyard, fully-equipped kitchen, living and dining room, 2-car garage and 2-car driveway and family/TV room.
Details, details, details!
-- The house is 15 minutes from downtown Austin (by car) and not even 5 minutes away from the airport.
- Nearby landmarks: Austin's famous 6th Street, bars, live music venues, clubs, museums, the Greenbelt (hiking trails), Rainey Street, the Texas Capitol, Barton Springs pool, Town Lake and Lady Bird Lake (kayaks, stand-up paddle boarding, canoes, water bikes), Zilker Park, food trucks ... SO many things to do during the day and at night.
- Public transportation is just a 10-minute walk away from the house. I work and hangout in downtown Austin so I'm happy to give rides! If you have a car, you can park at the house.
- I'm at work Monday-Friday until 6pm. I can be flexible to help you check in whenever you need to. I LOVE AUSTIN. I'm happy to be your tour guide whenever I'm available. If I'm not, I can help you figure out how to take over the city. You'll love it. Bed time is any time and you're free to be as nocturnal as you want :)
- I have two really cool, very nice roommates who are great with visitors. I don't have pets, you can smoke outside and I'm allergic to cats. That's all!
Guests are welcome to hang out in our cozy family/TV room, lay out in the backyard, make full use of the kitchen, use the laundry room with washer/dryer, park in the garage and access the private guest room, of course. A full bathroom would be shared with one of the house roommates.
Interaction with guests
I work until at least 6pm every day but I'm happy to show guests around whenever I'm available! I can also make great recommendations so that you can take on Austin on your own.
Common courtesy and common sense.
I love any combination of people and places. Bars, dance clubs, live music, outdoor movies, bike rides, boardwalks, floating on the river (and anything else to do with a body of water). I'm lucky to live in one of the most exciting cities I've ever known -- Austin, TX -- where I get to do most of these with great friends and awesome strangers.
It might go without saying that I have a borderline addiction to travel. So while I'm at home, hosting fellow travelers is my vicarious way to get my fix. I have backpacked around Europe and South America (I was actually born and raised in Ecuador) and traveled quite a bit around the US. I have a map of the world on my bedroom wall with photos of places I have visited. I hope it will always be a work in progress.
