The Space

I have an immaculate home with a great Austin vibe. Bedroom 1 has a queen size bed, mini fridge, robes, smart TV and full closet. It also has it's own key pad entrance that leads to the back patio with hot tub right outside your door. Bedroom 2 has a twin bed with a trundle that can make 2 twin beds, dresser and full closet. Bedroom 1 and 2 share a modern/vintage inspired bathroom directly across the hall. Bedroom 3 has a king size bed and flat screen TV, Roku, closet space, a desk and it's own master bath with tub. The living room has a Pottery Barn leather sofa that pulls out in to a queen size bed with a flat screen TV, sound bar and DVD player. There is a 4th bedroom/living space that is attached to the main house but also has its own private entrance. Attached to it is a small private bathroom with a sink, shower and toilet. The bedroom has 1 queen bed and a full size futon bed. There is a flat screen TV, Roku, stereo system with indoor/outdoor poolside speakers, DVD player, ceiling fan, mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, bar sink and armoire in your room. You will also be able to enjoy a backyard paradise including a huge back patio with a BBQ grill, fire pit, mature trees, hammock chair, and a lap pool. The pool is set up for water volleyball, lap swimming or lounging. We also have a Jacuzzi hot tub for your enjoyment.
You will love cooking in my full set up kitchen. The living room area is spacious and wide open which lends itself nicely to small social gatherings.
We do have an outdoor cat "BOO" that comes around for her daily feeding but does not come in the house.
Our home is clean and smoke free. We have parking for 4 small cars in the driveway. We have a bike path that runs directly in front of our home. There are cyclists, joggers, roller bladers and walkers zooming by throughout the day. If you enjoy fitness you will feel right at home and if you don't enjoy fitness, you will enjoy watching!

Other Things to Note

My home is not located in downtown Austin. Before booking my home, please make sure the location is right for you!!
Beginning August 1, 2015 all guests will be required to sign a rental contract which states they will only agree to use the hot tub and swimming pool at their own risk. This is for the short term rental insurance policy covering the property. It will be emailed to you once the reservation is booked.

No children are allowed to stay without special permission and signed waiver due to the liability and risk associated with having a swimming pool. Nobody under the age of 21 is allowed to rent the property.

Recently, the city of Austin city council members have been considering doing away with the option to use our homes for short term rental. Accepting guests in to my home is my passion. The biggest complaints from folks living close to a short term rental have been a disruption in the neighborhood due to excessive noise, vehicles, alcohol and trash. My neighborhood is quiet, family oriented and I am located on a high profile street. I do not allow any bookings that are planning on hosting a social gathering at the house with additional people. My driveway will only fit 3 or 4 (small) vehicles and my trash can, can not hold additional trash that is above a normal amount and my neighbors will not tolerate loud music and noise. Please do not rent my house if you are planning any type of reception or party, etc. at the home. No outdoor noise after 10:00 PM and no additional guests allowed on the property. I am not a scrooge or party downer but I have to be extremely careful with who I allow to rent! Please be understanding.
