Interaction with guests

I hike the Blunn Creek trail daily and then go to Jo's for morning tea. Feel free to come along! I've lived in Austin more than 30 years, so don't hesitate to reach out if you have questions about the city, area events, must sees, or anything else that may help you enjoy your time in Austin.

The neighborhood

Experience Texas Hill Country Sunsets, wildflowers, and picturesque views of St Edwards University from Blunn Creek Preserve's Volcanic Overlook! Blunn Creek Preserve adjoins our backyard!!! The Blunn Creek Preserve is a little known, quiet place that is great for hiking, picnicking and bird watching. You may also see Mexican Free Tail Bats, owls, foxes, and bunnies. The preserve also has a mile-long wooded hiking trail that crosses Blunn Creek, and rocky hillsides covered with wildflowers during the Spring.

Saint Edwards University, Mary Moody Theater, Jo's Coffee House, Curra's Grill, Vinaigrette (my favorite), Magnolia Cafe, South Austin Flying Pizza, Habana Restaurant, The Great Outdoors, El Gallo and many other SoCo cafes and attractions are all just minutes away.

Getting around

It's best to have a car, but public transportation is just under a mile away. If you have a car, there is available guest parking on the street in front of the house. There are ride-share options in Austin and public transit options including CapMetro, Car2Go and B-Cycle bike rentals all within 1 mile. Silvercar is also available if you'd like to rent a car in Austin.

Easy access to the heart of SoCo (1.5 mi) and downtown (3 mi). The bus line is just under one mile away. Of course cabs are another option for getting to where you need to go. A cab from/to the airport (7.6 mi) is about $20.
