About Alexander

I'm a 22 year Austinite, born in Mississippi. I love Austin. I moved here at 18 to attend the University of Texas. I've enjoyed Austin over the years. My passions are cooking, traveling, technology, and houses. Thus, airbnb.

Alexander purchased this house in 2012

Why Alexander chose Austin

I've lived in Austin since 1992, and I watched it grow. The Bouldin neighborhood is situated in the middle of classic "South Austin", and I jumped on the opportunity to buy this house from a friend when his family grew out of the place. This was a "fun" house. I have many memories of hanging out with my friend and cooking dinner with his family, relaxing on the back porch...even a few fun parties and hard times too. Now, I love to help other people make new fun memories.

What makes this house unique

I'm an experienced landlord and short term rental host.

Close to everything!

  • 4 of 5

We were in town for our daughters graduation and the bungalow had everything we needed. The Xbox kinnect put a whole new spin on game night. It was fun! House was super clean and the outside sitting areas were so nice. Quiet neighborhood. Would rent again!

Great place to stay in South Austin

  • 5 of 5

We rented Alexander' s place as our regular rental place was not available for our last week in Austin.

We live 6 months out of the year in South Austin, in the Galindo.

Alexander's place was even better than the photos on the site, it was clean, spacious, nicely decorated with Austin art and had a fully stocked kitchen, with great appliances.

South Austin is a great location to explore the city, only 2.5 miles from downtown, Zilker Park, Auditorium Shores, the Greenbelt, Barton Springs.

Great restaurants on South First, South Lamar, South Congress.

You can walk, bike to all those places from Alexander's place or use Austin ride or Fare.

Exactly right

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks working on a book project. This house was perfect, located within easy reach of everything we wanted, food stores, restaurants, Zumba classes. The patio was so nice, and private, we sat outside and enjoyed the fresh air. Very comfortable.

Awesome place and location

  • 5 of 5

Alexander was extremely accommodating and always kept me well informed. Very clean and well maintained property. We would stay here again for sure.

South Austin is hilly in many spots and this location is one of them. Property has a very steep driveway so some vehicles may not be able to access the car port. My point here is that if you have any type of mobility disability this location could be a major challenge so please keep that in mind.

Couldn't have been better!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfy, great location. Such an inviting space all around - loved the little seating area in the back. And the shower! What a nice surprise. 10 minutes from downtown and Barton Springs, walking distance to some of our favorite S. Austin restaurants, coffee shops. There was even a splash pad in the neighborhood for our friend's little one.

This was exactly what we were looking for. We will bookmark and come back as often as we can when we're in town.
