Location

Austin, Texas, United States

East Austin is a vibrant part of our city filled with locally owned restaurants, coffee shops, bike shops and art galleries. Lady Bird Lake and the hike and bike trail that winds through downtown Austin is a two-minute walk from the front door. Guests can choose to cool off in the neighborhood pool July-August. Foodies will love the easy access to the Rainy Street district for bar and restaurant hopping. While the home is close to everything, the neighborhood is quiet and family oriented.

I am originally from Minnesota, but now call Austin, Texas home. In 2001 I was able to be part of a team of teachers who co-founded a private school and I have been here ever since. The school has thrived over the years, starting with 9 students and now has over 500. I have held every role you could imagine, but currently serve as the Director of Student Life and College Counseling for the upper school. In my free time I am learning how to sew, reading, playing with my dogs, or working on projects. I am one of those introverts everyone mistakes for an extrovert, so in my free time I prefer to stay away from the crowds to recharge. As a guest in my rental, you can expect plenty of information about the house and Austin to make your stay simple and fun. I am often traveling or non-stop working with teens at the school, so independent travelers are the best fit. As a guest in your home, you can expect me to take care of your place as if it were my own. I tend to pick up after myself, so don't expect a mess. I am quiet, non-smoking and respectful. More often than not, it will be hard to tell I was even there. When I am traveling, I like to explore the neighborhoods and see where the locals like to eat, shop and buy books. I love supporting small businesses, so hosts who share that information are especially helpful to me.
