The lodge is located in the historic Hyde Park neighborhood. You have everything at your fingertips. Central Market and Central Park are just a few blocks away. Here you will find one of the best grocery stores in town, plenty of shopping, a park with playground for the kids, hike/bike trail, and an abundance of restaurants. Grab lunch at Hyde Park Bar and Grill. Their double battered french fries are some of the best I have ever eaten. The University of Texas is walking distance as well. Take in a Longhorn football game, tour the UT Tower, or take a stroll through the campus and visit the fountain. Guadalupe street, or 'the drag' , has lots of fun shopping and great hole in the wall restaurants. Don't miss Paul Qui's super popular East Side King restaurant. Downtown is just 5 minutes away and offers more dining options and nightlife. Mix it up with the college kids on 6th Street or for a more upscale experience visit the Warehouse District. Whatever you decide to do I can assure you that you are staying in one of the best homes in Central Austin. Enjoy!
Guests will have access to the house, the secured parking area, the outdoor living space, and the best of Austin.
Interaction with Guests
I like to interact with my guests as much or as little as they would like. I am always available (24/7) to answer questions via email, text, or phone, and I enjoy meeting many of my guests. However, I am also very respectful, and allow my guests to determine how much interaction they would like to have. Ever since I setup automatic door locks, there are some guests that I have not ever met in person. Whatever works best for the guest, works fine for me.
Other Things to Note
If you are interested in hosting an even larger group, please note that I own and manage a large number of condos and houses in Austin. I am happy to host large groups for weddings, convention center trade shows, and other events in Austin. Events and weekends generally have additional minimum stay requirements.
No loud parties.
No smoking inside.
Gourmet kitchen with custom cabinets, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances.
