This is a safe, easy pull-in downtown street parking spot - (note: on the street) - for single family Vans only - no tents/RV. Locked/clean bathroom w/ toilet/sink - no shower. Electric extension cord/water hose and great internet with nice outdoor seating. It is not private ....because you are on a street in downtown Alpine but it is fun, funky and friendly. 

We have 2 Bnb's on either side of the street parking spot in front of the airstream - a former food truck - now empty and an epic hangout spot with friendly neighbors on Murphy street in downtown Alpine (lots of cool murals/sculpture). Park/walk everywhere or stargaze - the skies are epic out here. Both our b n b's are available if you prefer with full laundry facilities.

Please no pitching tents and no loud noises after 9 pm because I do frequenlty have guests on either side of you. Also no extended stay ....more than 3 nights ...

Absolutely wonderful experience all the way from start to end!!! Loved it so much we stayed longer. Eclectic cool friendly welcoming town!!! The sitting area with water fountains and murals was so peaceful. Power, water, and clean bathroom available. Walking distance to everything. Make sure to visit Nancy on the corner market. She is amazing! It was everything we wanted and more!

I wish more people across the country did this for Van lifers. This place was wonderful. The WiFi worked well from the street. It is right near a train station, so be prepared for trains coming through but after the first day, I got used to them...and I’m usually pretty sensitive to sound. Alpine is a great town and this spot is central to a lot of the restaurants. I also loved the running track down the street. Thank you, Liz for providing this stop over space.

So glad you enjoyed Jordan - my adult kids in austin are restoring a van and got me on this track ....i know how far distances are out here and a safe clean overnight spot is so welcome ...and most folks are so very lovely !

Had a great experience at this spot! The bathroom was perfectly clean, the wifi worked well, the outdoor seating area was lovely. Liz was easy to communicate with & quick to reply - she was able to accommodate my last minute change in plans. Once you park, you can walk to everything in town - definitely recommend!
