Have been working hard to do my part to solve this nomad housing problem and finally launched Nomad Pad! They say sometimes a drop in bucket can lead to an ocean, so let’s see where this goes. I was able to convince an Airbnb homeowner to unlist her property and dedicate it to the project for the months of April, May and June! There is currently 2 room booked for all of April, from a web worker from San Fransisco & Grayson, meaning there are 2 more beds to claim. We would need an online commitment to stay, and could collect the payment through Stripe 2 weeks prior to stay, but without further ado, The Austin Pad!
Located at South Second and Mary street (https://goo.gl/maps/ntVdN), literally a 5 minute walk to South Congress, a really special part of Austin. Nice big table for coworking, wifi, fully furnished, in unit washer/dry, all utilities included. It’s a 3 bedroom, 4 bed, with 2 bathrooms. Elijah Wood is our neighbor and we’re working to throw events with Capital Factory (two great locate cowork spaces/incubators) in the garage haha.
Monthly rent: $1,000 (private)
Weekly rent: $400
My goal with Nomad Pad is to create the most comfortable, fun and helpful environment possible. I’ve been a nomad for 6 years, and know what little things can help when moving to a new city. I want the focus to be on personal growth, becoming stronger business owners and really connecting with the nomads of the house! If we get Austin right, it’s a step towards creating a global network of hotel/hostel/houses that serve the nomad community with flexible short-term booking, concierge services and a great community behind it!
The goal is to get one Pad right, and then grow as the community dictates.
Excited to see you guys in Austin!!
