Pets are allowed! In as few words as possible, this unique spot has a 'survive the apocalypse vibe!' It's a fixed up apartment in a very old house/duplex and has everything you need to enjoy a fun time in Austin. The location is it's strongest attribute, being only a couple blocks from Trader Joe's or Whole Foods and a pleasant walk to Zilker Park on the hike and bike trail. There are several coffee shops and restaurants nearby and it's about a 10 minute walk to the West 6th street bars.
Next to an old steel warehouse, some furniture was welded right next door to help make the place fully functional. The living room Murphy bed is queen-sized and is simple to fold up/down and operate. There are plenty of blankets, towels, sheets, pillows, paper towels, coffee, tea, toilet paper, soap, shampoo and miscellaneous items to borrow. The window units for A/C and heat isn't perfectly quiet, and there is an air filter and candles around to help keep a great vibe.

I will most likely be available to help with anything as my office is within walking distance from the property. I don't want to intrude but also enjoy meeting new people and can help you find stuff to do around the city, it just depends on what's going on or whether I'm out of town or not.
There is a fully functional kitchen in case you are hoping to cook, however, it is far from state of the art and you'll have to make do with what's available. The stove tops are portable, there's only a toaster oven as opposed to a full-sized oven, and there is no dishwasher.
There is an iron + ironing board, steamer, and washer + dryer available.
I've got a little portable Bluetooth speaker you can borrow and sync to play music on.
It is worth mentioning some cosmetic work still needs to be done on the bathroom ceiling, the wood floors are old and scratched up and uneven.
Please feel free to play the guitars but be careful not to damage them. I have picks, a tuner, and an Amplifier. You may borrow pretty much any of the stuff you find like pens, paper, chargers, adapters, the walkie-talkies, poker chips, soccer ball, volleyball, football, glow frisbee, baseball gloves/baseball, golf clubs, etc.
There is a computer with a typical printer available with a guest login.
Feel free to use but please don't ruin this privilege for future guests.
- Please inform me how many people will be staying so I can set-up beds.
- No more than 9 guests allowed at anytime.
- No Pets allowed on the beds (couch is okay as the couch-cover is washed).
- No smoking indoors, outdoors only.
- Make sure NO GUESTS wander into the adjacent warehouse or past the fence in the backyard into the scrapyard. Cops will be called, you'll have to leave the apartment, I'll have to shut down this listing, and I might get evicted (off-limits will be shown on the map I send you).
Aloha! I'm a native Austinite with an affinity for sports and recreation. When I'm not working, I like to travel. I have been to several places in Europe and to a few of the main attractions in America. I am looking to continue to explore new places and meet new people!
