Walking distance to S. Congress, Zilker and downtown, abundant on-site parking, flexible check-in and check-out times. The suite is ~650 sf, plus a large patio for morning coffee. We are on a quiet, large forested lot. The 1st floor suite (BR, bath, living room w/ kitchenette) with numerous windows (& room-darkening shades) offers peaceful views of mountain laurels and majestic oaks. Our home office adjoins the guest suite; the door stays locked. We live on-site, and would enjoy meeting you.
Our guest suite is approximately 650 square feet, composed of a bedroom with a king bed and a twin, and a studio/kitchen with a pull-out futon couch that can sleep two. In addition, you have sole access to a bathroom with shower and the outside patio of about 150 square feet.
Disponible para huéspedes
Guests are welcome to walk up the hill to the playhouse and check out the local plants, birds and other wildlife. At the front of the property is our experimental garden -- you are welcome to pick some greens upon request.

Patrick and I are usually working from home. We would enjoy meeting you but are happy to leave you your privacy if that's your preference. If there are any problems or general questions, we are here to help.

We live upstairs and you'll hear some pitter-patter of little feet (10 and 7 years old), but we do our best to keep it quiet, especially after dinner. They are "free range," social kids, so you might see them outside as you come & go. We have an office on the other side of the door to the guest suite, but we don't use it much in the evenings or on weekends, and the door stays locked. We are legally registered as an STR with the City of Austin.
**We are delighted to have children and infants, but please know that the suite is NOT 100% BABY-PROOF (no outlet covers or locks on cabinets, for instance).
**Very occasionally** we have my mother's dog; please let us know if that might be a problem. He does not enter the guest suite but likes to be outside in the yard. If it's an issue for you, he can be indoors and on-leash during your stay.
Please behave as you would wish for guests to behave at your own home.
No smoking on premises.
No illegal substances on premises.
No guns on premises.
Please respect our neighbors by not being too loud outside, especially after 10 pm on weekends and 9 pm weekdays. You can enjoy clubs & parties just a short walk or cab ride away!

We have been living on this site since the 1990s. Patrick and I have both traveled extensively, mostly in Europe, and have strong interests in the environment, entrepreneurship, and community. We write grants, translate, and love nature. We speak German, Dutch, Spanish and some Italian/French. We are explorers and lifelong learners. We have two curious children, aged 6 and 8, who love to be outdoors and to interact with visitors.
We have an awesome garden on site and are happy to share salad greens etc., for your dinner when in season. (Forget about it during an Austin summer!) We prize farm fresh eggs and holistic lifestyles in a modern age. We absolutely love living so close to downtown and its access to the main library. We speak Canadian eh, and have relatives in Europe and Thailand.
Come and share our beautiful green space!
