It's like living in the country, but it's in 78704!

Our cottage is a recently-renovated, South-Austin style unfurnished bungalow with a fridge and oven already in place. It has a full kitchen and bath, a large carpeted living space, decent closet space, lots of windows and light, and a garden view. It's 475 square feet, and you'll have access to a washer/dryer in the main building at no charge. It's available for rent now for just $875 on a 12-month lease, with all bills paid except gas.

There's lots of space on our lightly-forested 1.3 acre campus for outdoor activities. It feels like living in the country, and yet it's got all the conveniences of living in town, including easy access to bus routes and easy biking distance from Barton Springs. You'll be within walking distance of Wheatsville Coop (south), Sprouts, Hobby Lobby, Starbucks, Savers, People's Pharmacy, Harbor Freight Tools, Hancock Fabrics, Dan's Hamburgers, Wells Fargo Bank, Target, Randalls, Taco Cabana, the Texas College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and, if you're energetic, the AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine.

As a nonprofit we can only offer this space to members, so you need to maintain a membership in the Center which costs only $20 per month and provides lots of other benefits: .

Because the focus of the Center is humanistic psychology and personal growth, we're looking for people who have already done lots of personal growth work, and who are easy-going, friendly, pleasant, playful folks who want to take part in creating and contributing to an atmosphere of emotionally-healthy community at the Center and who live their lives with a minimum of drama. If this describes you and you're looking for a place to rent, let's arrange a time for you to come over and take a look! Call (512) 441-8988 or drop me an email with Cottage in the subject.

Temporary Room Rental Wanted

I am a doctoral student in AOMA’s new DAOM program and travel to Austin once every two months for a week long module.  I am looking for a place to rent during the times I am in town, which would include a private room with a real bed, kitchen privileges, and ideally be walking distance to campus.   

We are in class a LOT so for the most part I would be going to school early and coming home in the evening to study or sleep.  Typically our modules are held during masters program breaks. So, if you are a student who travels during breaks I would be open to discussing an arrangement that included some house sitting tasks like pet sitting, water plants, etc.  If you have a room you would consider renting and would like to discuss it please call me.
