Other things to note
**Please be aware of this if you have any allergies***
-We have a sweet dog named Salt and we share custody of another dog, Pan, who will either be in our side of the duplex or not at the house during your stay.
If you have a dog traveling with you please contact us to discuss before reserving the space, there is an additional cleaning fee.
Please note we do not allow use of our back yard since we have dogs of our own; but we are open to negotiating a daily fee for use of the yard if you wish to discuss further. It just requires some pet coordination since our part time dog, Pan, doesn't get along well with others.

If you are a first-time airbnb user or do not yet have any reviews, take a few minutes to write a few sentences about yourself. I like to know a little about the folks that come to stay in my home. I look forward to hosting you!
Please read the information sheet you will find on the fridge upon arrival. It goes over a few requests regarding being energy efficient with climate control and the use of the front porch and yard.

I'm a casual host. I like to utilize a key lock box so my tenants can come and go as they please. Sometimes we meet one another, sometimes not. But I'm always available to answer questions, fulfill requests and offer suggestions.
I love the outdoors and staying active in this wonderful city. I also really enjoy sharing it with others.
One thing I love about Austin is all of the local restaurants...I love food and there is an unending number of options for great food in this city.
