Cozy Mid-Century Bungalow in North Loop - Bike, Bus, or Drive to Campus (All Utilities Incl.)

Stylish renovation of mid-century bungalow in Hyde Park, just steps to the Triangle and North Loop shops. Cozy 3BD/1 BA including Brazilian cherry wood floors, Turkish travertine, renovated kitchen, patio and grill. Quiet, cozy 3BD home just a block from public transit and the great vintage stores, restaurants, and bars on North Loop.

Lots of books, plenty of workspace (three desks), feel free to use monitors, keyboards, etc. Fast wi-fi. If you prefer to work in cafes, there are two great cafes nearby - Epoch (open 24/7 with plenty of places to charge up your laptop) and Flightpath (with a quiet room just for studying).

We enjoy browsing the vintage stores on North Loop, having beers at the Workhorse, and craft cocktails at the Tigress. Foreign & Domestic is where we often take out-of-towners for a nice meal -- one of the best restaurants in town. The Biscuits and Groovy food truck is hearty and delicious. If you're in the mood for something a bit lighter, there's a vegan taco truck around the corner as well. The other way, you can walk to the Triangle, which has a bunch of shops - nail salons, spas, restaurants, dry cleaning, etc. We're also just north of Hyde Park: Hyde Park Bar & Grill, restaurants, a cheese shop, Quack's Bakery, etc. About a 15-minute walk away is Burnet street, which has a bunch of great restaurants, brunch spots, and good pizza.

We are a block from the UT shuttle. A number of bus lines are close by: the 1, 7-Duval, A short walk away is the express 801 which takes you downtown and to campus very quickly. If you're driving, we're halfway between Mopac on the West and I-35 on the East, and close to 183 and 290. You couldn't really be more central to travel by car. Park in the driveway or street parking is available. Ask us about borrowing our UT parking pass if you'd like to park on campus.

We'll be there to check you in (or, if we're out of town, a friend will be there). We love sharing tips on what to do, see, eat, and drink in Austin, so please let us know if you are looking for classic Austin spots or things a bit more off the beaten path. We're very responsive by email and phone, but we give our guests privacy otherwise.

If you're willing to take care of the lawn, etc., we can lower the monthly/weekly rent accordingly.

About Me
I am an assistant professor at the University of Texas-Austin, and my partner is a science writer and instructor at UT-Austin. We recently moved to Austin from San Francisco, and lived in New York City before that. We like to travel to a new city for at least a month at a time (last summer: Istanbul).
