Close to some of Austin’s most popular, local spas, yoga studios, restaurants, bars, music venues and coffee shops, as well as the Barton Creek Greenbelt, Barton Springs Pool, Zilker Park, Auditorium Shores and Downtown, all while staying in a quiet, shady neighborhood and a cozy home full of local art and plants. There’s a small patio, ‘sky chair’ and a balcony off the master bedroom. The kitchen is small but well-stocked with gourmet staples, utensils and cookware.

The space
The living room is cozy with comfy couch and lounge chairs with tons of natural light. The house is full of art by local Austin artists and plants. There’s a small patio with a ‘sky chair’ and a balcony off the master bedroom. I’ve added a television since my first guest missed having one. The kitchen is small but well-stocked with a Vitamix, Kitchen Aid mixer, microwave, gourmet staples, utensils and cookware. Filtered water is supplied with a Berkey. Coffees sourced from local roaster made old-school with Chemex and Hario pour overs. There’s a kettle with lots of tea options and a matcha set-up. The fridge is brand new, as are the washing machine and dryer. If you’re a guest who prefers the convenience of a keurig to fresh locally roasted and brewed coffee, this may not be the place for you.

Where you’ll be

Austin, Texas, United States

The South Lamar neighborhood is across Lamar from Zilker and Barton Hills, and just north of Bouldin. Within walking distance or an even shorter bike or scooter ride to Zilker Park (ACL), Barton Springs Pool, Auditorium Shores (Lady Bird Lake), the Barton Creek Greenbelt, and First Street and South Congress shops/restaurants/bars. Lots of Austin’s most popular shops, music venues, bars and restaurants are just blocks away - Uchi, Lenoir, Loro, Tatsu Ya, Soup Peddler, and the Saxon Pub to name a few. The neighborhood is very walkable, and you can access different points of South Lamar through the shady park on Del Curto and

I've traveled and lived all over the world, and pride myself on providing a comfortable and unique space for travelers. I love hosting travelers and enjoy creating a space and experience that people will find fun, interesting and beautiful in some way. Austin is a very special place, and my guidebook shares my favorite places in the city for eating, relaxing and celebrating.

I'm an architect specializing in historic preservation and I believe in connecting people to a place. I believe in livable cities and the apartment reflects everything that's great about living in Austin. We have a deep connection to Austin as a city and community.

I've lived in Austin for 20 years and my husband most of his life since moving here from South Africa in the 70's. We can give you tips on just about any type of experience you may desire - great music venues, day trips, what to do outdoors and where, places to dance, the best yoga instructors, local artists, truly talented massage, acupuncture or other alternative practitioners, great food, coffee and baked goods, top notch restaurants that source their food locally, etc.
