If you love drinking top notch coffee in the morning while looking out at a quiet creek in the middle of the hustle and bustle of what is East Austin, you have found your place……….
The property boasts a large home with an oversized kitchen, living room and the following bedrooms:
The Ansel Adam's room with a large window, new queen sized bed, desk, and walk-in closet with large dresser (big enough for a full sized air mattress to be added)
The Tibetan Room full of art from my time there, a large new queen sized bed, and large window (big enough for a twin air mattress to be added)
The Blue Room which is the smallest room with a new queen size bed, desk, and lovely energy from the trees that live outside it.
I can do any arrangement of extra air mattresses including the living room.
Outside of the property is what we will just call the "charm" of East Austin, weird indeed as the slogan would call it. When you step past the large front coverage of trees that line the 1/2 acre property though you find yourself in an oasis filled with green lawns, a screened in patio next to the trickling backyard stream, owls calling their lovers, the resident hawk flying overhead (checking out our chickens), cranes flying down the creek fishing for their breakfast (if you wake up early enough), and flying unicorns (just kidding). My friend said to me as I was tooth brushing the baseboards, “Cassie, nobody is going to care what the inside looks like after seeing the backyard.”
There are three residences on the property, the main house (what will be your place), a two-bedroom suite on the other side of the kitchen (which is also available on homeaway) and my residence. I know I know, the owner on the property?…….. but we are really nice people and are very respectful to our guest. Check out our reviews.
Please note that parties and events allowed on the property unless you rent both the house and the suite and get special permission at an additional cost. If you want to have a party or event, please check out the listing for both the house and the suite at:
There are two very sweet dogs and cats on the property and the guest have all fallen in love with them. Sometimes I get jealous of their reviews (just kidding).
The rate includes fast wifi, three bedroom house, fire pit, a large patio and screened in porch, creek, linens and towels, soap and shampoo, access to the main house washer and drier, coffee and tea and kitchen essentials. The back yard is shared.
Just bring yourself, an open heart and your bag of clothes...
We want everybody who comes here to love their stay, so please ask for anything you need and we will help as much as possible…. Just ask.
There is bus transportation one block from the house that goes into downtown. All details about transportation are in the house manual.
Smoking only allowed outside.
I have traveled all over the world and but have always called Austin home. I have hundreds of reviews on other sites and am new to HomeAway. Here are what people have said:
"We had such a wonderful stay at Cassie's house. We were there for 4 nights and we felt at home. Cassie was really a nice person to have around. We could use everything in the kitchen (we cooked everyday). Just go there, it's the best airbnb we've had so far. Thanks again Cassie, we wish we could have stayed more!"
"Amazing. Exactly what I was looking for. The whole house feels homey. Cassie has set the place up perfectly for travelers on a budget. Everything is well organized. The place is spotless. I was able to cook and feel at home. The animals are friendly. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful but a short drive to coffee shops. Couldn't ask for a better experience."
"If you want a bit of reprieve from the city but don't want to stay in the Hill Country - rent Cassie's place! It's only 10 min. to amazing east side restaurants, bars, & grocery stores but it feels like staying out in the country because of the beautiful surrounding nature and creek in the back yard. It was quiet and peaceful."
"Beautiful home that looks even better in person. The house and backyard are so peaceful and serene, it offers a break from busy downtown. There are thoughtful cultural touches that I really enjoyed."
"Very thoughtful and hardworking host. Can expect to have a clean and comfortable stay with lots of attention to detail!"
I look forward to hosting you in my beloved home.
Love Cassie :DGet the full listing »
