This unique, one of a kind, Geodesic Dome is located on a hillside in West Lake Hills. Overlooking downtown Austin, located above Lake Austin, this private, secluded property makes this priceless. The view of downtown and the hill country above Lake Austin from anywhere on the property is truly spectacular. There are native plants all around, huge garden of succulents and seasonal flowers everywhere. Families of deer and silver foxes, along with little bunnies and birds singing in the morning makes this a delightful stay. Wildlife friendly. Watch the fireworks display from Auditorium Shores on the 4th of July from my deck.

Starting June 1,2017, Airbnb began including your Texas State Occupancy Tax with your quote. In West Lake Hills, the Occupancy tax is 6% of the gross transaction. Airbnb remits this tax to the State every 3 months.
West Lake Hills is a very quiet upscale neighborhood. WLH's is a small unique city within the city of Austin. Respecting my neighbors privacy is a must! It's a heavily wooded area and the neighbors are also secluded and private. The hills and winding roads creates an "in the country" kind of feeling. The Dome is located in a private and secluded area. The city view opens your world to Downtown Austin. Very convenient to Downtown Austin and Zilker Park...South Congress and many fabulous restaurants. Sharing my Dome with people from all over the world, making new connections with people and developing friendships has been an awesome experience. Making my guests feel very special and comfortable brings joy to me in every way. I customize your stay depending on how many guests are in your party.
Using alternative transportation or "ride sharing" with such companies as Uber, Lyft, Fasten, RideAustin, Fare or Get Me is a worry free way to get around in Austin, if you don't have a car. It's very convenient, safe and inexpensive. Downtown is only 6 miles away from the Dome. Finding and paying for parking is sometimes an issue especially on the weekends. But when you are dropped off at your destination and picked up again by one of these companies, taken somewhere else or brought back to my Dome in West Lake Hills, it makes having tons of fun "going out" so much easier and worry-free. It's an inexpensive and a very reliable way to get around town. Your wait time is less than 15 minutes when picked up at the Dome. I, personally, have been using "ride sharing " for the past three years and love it.
Uber Eats is also available in West Lake Hills.

I've been very interested in the concept of community and Airbnb.
Retiring from 40 years of being a Registered Dental Hygienist in our beautiful City of Austin and State of Texas, Colorado and Kansas. Being a host with Airbnb has been a wonderful experience. I love making my guests comfortable and meeting new guests from all over the world. Having fun and learning more everyday about this new venture is very exciting. Sharing all the fun and laughter, and friendships, shared in this sacred geodesic dome is priceless. It's full of good times and vibrations! My favorite things I cannot live w/o are laughter, embracing new and old friendships, loving one another, good food, good beer and Live Music!!!
My basic motto is Do unto others as you would have done to you. Pssst! I'll tell you more later.!
