Location, location, location! Walk or bike to everything in central Austin: Downtown, 6th St, the University of Texas, the Capitol, and so much more! Our music-lovers' retreat is in the heart of the trendy eastside, just 1-2 blocks from great restaurants and bars in a vibrant neighborhood with tons of activity. The inside space is cozy, but has big personality, and a private deck provides outdoor living space. Great for couples, solo adventurers, or business travelers. Parking spot included!
The space is a small private studio apartment, with a queen bed, full bathroom, and kitchenette, that we've carved out of (and separated from) our house- it has it's own private entrance and cedar deck, with an outdoor seating/smoking area. It is exclusively for guests, so you won't have to move our personal stuff out of the way to make room for yours.
The kitchenette includes a small fridge/freezer, microwave, coffee maker, hotplate, pots/pans, dishes, silverware, glassware, etc. There’s cable TV, HBO, Showtime, and Netflix, so if you feel like staying in, we’ve got you covered!
Local beverages will be provided in the fridge- please let us know if you prefer non-alcoholic. (Please don’t drink and drive!)
Smoking is allowed outside on the private deck.
Got pet allergies? You're safe with us!* While we LOVE pets, we are keeping this space animal-free, to respect those with allergies. Our three beautiful furry family members are not allowed in there (much to their chagrin), so we appreciate you leaving your 4-legged pals at home, too.
The place is not childproofed. Having said that, if you feel that you can keep an eye on your little one and you think they'll be okay, they’re welcome, at your own risk.
The entrance has a code-operated deadbolt- we'll ask you for a 4-digit private code before you arrive, changed with each guest, so that you can access it easily. No key needed, and easy 24/7 arrival. The deadbolt automatically locks 30 seconds after being unlocked, so you don't need to worry about whether you remembered to lock the door. The driveway is all yours, so if you have a vehicle, you've got a spot to put it.
We aim to be unobtrusive. We'll have printed information about the local area inside the apartment. We'll give you your privacy- you likely will not see us at all during your stay- unless you need us or have questions, in which case we're available for whatever you need!
Noise- we are in a vibrant, happening neighborhood, 1.5 blocks from an outdoor music venue, so you may experience some exuberant noise in the neighborhood prior to the noise curfews each night. The fan on the AC unit drowns most of it out, but we provide earplugs for anybody who'd like them, and a fan you can use if you like the continuous white noise. The walls of the apartment are standard walls in a house, (with a bit of extra insulation), but you also may hear the occasional faint, muffled noises from the other side of the wall, like you would in most apartments. We don't notice it, but if you are used to very quiet surroundings, you might.
Occupancy Taxes: the listed room rate INCLUDES a 9% tax to the City of Austin (7% occupancy tax, and an additional 2% tax for the purpose of financing a venue project). You will see an additional 6% Texas state occupancy tax that the AirBnB system will add onto your bill, which is not included in the listed rates.
Operating license: City of Austin Short-Term Rental License # 107085OL (preceded by 2015).
* Cat allergies: While we go to extreme lengths to keep all traces of cat allergens out of the apartment and all furnishings/linens/towels, there are cats in other parts of the building. We don't anticipate that you'll have any issues, but if your sensitivity level to cats is very high, it might be a good idea to have your allergy medicine along, just in case.

We are a music-loving couple who has spent a collective 46 years living in Austin. Robin is a nurse, and Ashley is in education. We love to travel for great music, and host people from all walks of life. We are great communicators, and will try our very best to make your stay with us a fun and carefree experience.
