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 Austin History Room (decorated with historical photos of old Austin) & there's room for a memory foam mattress if you want to add an extra person. I have another room listed at this same location, the Zen 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, so 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, Stevie Ray Vaughan statue), Lady Bird Lake, the hike & bike trail, Butler Park, the Long Center for Performing Arts, Palmer Events Center & the Dougherty 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 pleasant walk to Zilker Park (approx 1 mile), the Botanical Gardens, & Barton Springs Pool (one of the best things about Austin, a lovely natural springs pool w/ 68-72 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 have clients or students over during your stay, but you won't have to stay out of our way!

Basically, I like my guests to feel welcome...like you're visiting a friend! :)
