Experience #YurtLife without having to drive to Marfa! The best part? It's handcrafted! Centrally located and close to Everything Austin is known for. This Yurt is the first and only INSIDE the city of Austin! Shared with other communal "Glamping" campers on the property, our Yurt is spacious and private and even comes with it's very own outdoor shower. Perfect for a quick and quirky experience in Austin - What we are known for. Take a look....

The space
Equipped with everything one could need to experience "Glamping" in a controlled outdoor environment while still being INSIDE the city. It's perfect for folks who want a quick taste for what this #YurtLife craze is all about.

Shared an the property with two other vintage campers, the vibe we are going for is communal, yet PRIVATE. Each "glamping" camper/yurt has been strategically placed as to provide just the right amout of privacy without disrupting or disturbing other guests on the property.

Remember this is "Glamping" or Glamorized Camping. It's like camping in the very best possible way. You get amenities like wifi, communal fire-pit, private outdoor shower, small kitchen, microwave, local pour over coffee, and yes of course, it's temperature controlled! But at the same time, you are outside and a little more vulnerable to things like the weather and a few bugs here and there. The sounds of occasianal rain hitting the yurt is probably the most peaceful sound in the world. Yes, its waterproof. :)

Where you’ll be

Austin, Texas, United States

Your yurt shares a nice big yard with two other small vintage camper in a part of town called "North Loop" - where Hipsters lived before it was cool and before they were considered Hipsters. Only 15 minutes from downtown and a few blocks from the community known as Mueller- the nation's first fully sustainable green community. It's here G00gle first tried their self driving cars. Here there are several shops, grocery options, some of the best go-to food spots, taco stands and honestly some of Austin's best happy hour spots, all just a few minutes walk or bike ride away.
Bike rentals also available for $10 a day. The Domain is also relatively close, as well as Rainey street (nightlife) and Barton Springs (natural spring). We are right in the heart of austin.

During your stay

Perhaps my favorite part of Airbnb is getting to interact with my guests, but i don't always get to. I love to meet you upon arrival and sometimes see you off when you leave. I work on the property in my shop restoring other campers and Vans, so it not uncommon of me to share a few beers around the fire after work and chat about best places to eat and do in Austin.
