Looking for a comfortable inexpensive room to stay for a night? A week or more? Join us in our northwest Austin home where the house is tidy, nicely decorated and we are friendly, responsible, courteous hosts. Single or couples welcome. I have one small, very shy and quiet dog and we welcome travelers from all over. You can enjoy your coffee in the morning on the deck with a large backyard, or in the dining area. Your own Parking spot can be found in front of the house on the granite gravel driveway just beside the mailbox.
The bedroom available in this listing accommodates two persons on a queen bed. It is next to my study and craft room that sometimes serves as another guest room for a visiting family member or friend but rarely have anyone stay unless I decide to open up this additional space for SXSW, ACL, etc. This room listing is my primary listing but wanted you to be aware of the 2nd bedroom that may on rare occasions be occupied by another guest. The bathroom is in the hallway and would be a shared bath with whomever stays in the 2nd guest room (if any). Otherwise, it's all yours.
The room has central air/heat and the home is kept on the cool side. However you have a small space heater for your own temperature control within the room and in the summer you have a celing fan. There is a Queen-sized bed (fresh linens, comforter and pillows provided), basic toiletries if needed, basic cable tv, a closet, desk, small microwave oven, and secure wireless internet throughout the house.
Nearby (by car) there are plenty of restaurants, grocery stores, dry cleaners, and a mall. A nice park is within walking distance with picnic area, tennis/volleyball court and a walking trail. We have the Alamo Drafthouse movie theatre just over 2 miles away and Lakeline Shopping Mall.
Transportation: Your own vehicle transportation is probably best because of the location. MetroRail station is about 2-1/2 miles from the house if you prefer to leave your car parked in their lot and have the train take you to the heart of downtown.
We're non-smokers and prefer to host non-smoking guets, but if you don't mind disposing of your cigarettes properly outside, we will consider. Even though we're busy hosts we enjoy meeting new people and answering any questions. So if you're a friendly individual or at least know to say hello when you see us in the common areas, I would love to host you!
