The Kingsley House is a known entity in Austin. Built in 1926 by Judge Kingsley for his daughter, Cora, who lived here for many years, the walls of this home could tell many stories. Besides housing a prominent citizen in its early days, it was later the home of a popular local artist; it's been an antique store; and it has even been a residence for senior citizens. But now it is the sanctuary for my little family, our peaceful abode just a block from downtown.

The space
This cozy 2nd floor bedroom features a queen bed with high-end tempurpedic mattress. Enjoy a view out the window of the lovely backyard and watch the fireflies buzz around at night. The sound of a neighborhood frog can be heard best in the summer from this room. Cozy up in the chair with a good book and then get ready to sleep like a baby! The shared bathroom is right outside the door.

Note: there is a cat that lives in the home. She doesn’t have access to the second floor of the house and is therefore never in any bedrooms. She’s a sweet, adoring cat but we are sensitive to the fact that some guests may have allergies, so she is confined to the basement, living room, and kitchen.

My name is Brie and I'm a shy adventurer. I tend to be a homebody and work hard to make my home a peaceful oasis. But then I also like to get out from time to time to meet new people and explore new places. Mornings don't start without coffee and nights don't end without meditation. I love to read, journal, letterbox, clean... I'm always busy! I like to jog and try to eat healthy but also understand the importance of balance.

During your stay

I am readily available for questions during your stay! My family lives in the home, also, so chances are you'll see us around. The home is large enough, though, that we often have guests we never see! I'm always available via message if you need to reach out and I'm not home. I love to socialize with guests, so feel free to integrate as much as you like! If you are more interested in some quiet time to yourself, that's okay, too.
