welcome to my home! you couldn't ask for a better location...I'm 1/2 mile from downtown, there are amazing food trailers all around & many cool shops & restaurants on S. 1st St...all within walking distance! Bouldin Creek runs through my backyard & there is a short trail through the woods on the other side. it's fun just to walk around & look at the eclectic mix of housing styles in my area. 78704 is the best!!

this bedroom is the Zen Room. I have another room listed at this same location, the Austin History Room. please contact me if you would like to book both rooms & I can offer you a discount! I can also rent to larger groups with enough notice.

I live on a busy street, so that means there is some street noise (worse during traffic times, often quiet at night). luckily, there are no lights or stop signs (Website hidden by Airbnb) no honking or braking, but there can be a steady flow of cars whooshing by & the occasional siren. I provide earplugs in case you are a sensitive sleeper. if you are extremely sensitive, then this might not be the place for you. :)

the Solar Sanctuary was built in 2004 on land purchased by my great-grandfather in 1930! it's a 4-star green builder home w/ solar panels (so no worries about running the a/c in the Texas heat!) & large open spaces w/ bamboo floors & high ceilings, no-VOC paint, HEPA-type filters on both a/c units & return air vents in every room.

it's an easy walk down the hill to Auditorium Shores (Reggae Fest, FunFunFun Fest, Stevie Ray Vaughan statue), the hike & bike trail , Butler Park, the Long Center for Performing Arts, Palmer Events Center, & the Doughery Arts Center...continue across the S. 1st St. bridge & you are downtown (& near the Willie Nelson statue)! it's a quick walk to the SoCo (South Congress) shopping district full of unique shops, restaurants & the legendary Continental Club! the section of S. 1st St. just south of me is becoming SoCo's equal, with fun new places popping up every day! it's a longer but pleasant walk to Zilker Park (when ACL is here the pedicabbers gather at the bottom of my hill!), the Botanical Gardens, & Barton Springs Pool (one of the best things about Austin, a lovely natural springs pool w/ 68 degree water!)

I will offer rides when I can & I love to give advice on places to hangout & things to do & see! I love to be a host to travelers, but I can also stay out of your way, whichever you prefer!

you can also schedule services with me while you are visiting! scheduling ahead of time is best. I'm often available on short notice too, just not guaranteed. I offer henna body art, henna lessons, poi (fire dancing) lessons & hula hoop lessons. It's possible I will host clients or students during your stay, but you won't have to stay out of our way!

basically, I like my guests to feel welcome...like they are visiting a friend! :)

If you truly want to get to know Austin just spend some time with Kim & at her place. I found myself there more than anywhere else while I was in Austin. I still did my usual thing of going out each night, but the night life wasn't feeding my soul the way Kim & her place did. Sh…

Kim was a wonderful host. I was only in town for a wedding so it was a really quick 2 nights. I arrived super late on Friday and the easy-access keypad was really great as I didn't have to keep Kim up to give me keys. Kim was so hospitable. We chatted for like 2 hours Saturday mo…

I was born in Austin & both sides of my family have been here for generations! I love south Austin & the 78704 area & I'm a huge longhorn football fan! I was stuck in Houston from the ages of 8-18, but during that time we visited Austin every chance we got. I came back here in…
