Interaction with guests
As much or as little as they prefer.
Cherrywood Neighborhood, or what AirBNB calls Upper Boggy Creek is great for many reasons. 1) Laid back, friendly feel. 2) Quiet, yet lively. 3) Great Eat, Drinks and Open Spaces that are easily accessible. 4) Lots of trees and safe walk-able streets.
Many Capital Metro (bus / rail) stops are scattered around the apartment and can get you where your going, anywhere around the city for a low cost. Fare, Fasten and Yellow Cab are also always available for a fee.

You do not have your own thermostat in the apartment. The house is cooled / heated by a central HVAC system that is controlled by us in the front house. If you need us to cool it down or heat it up, please send us a quick message and we will gladly oblige. We also have a box fan and space heater for your use if needed. It is rarely cold enough in Austin to need the space heater but if you do use it PLEASE DO NOT leave it on while you are not in the apartment.
Always lock the apartment door when you exit the premises.
Trash / recycling containers are on the East side of the house (driveway side) and are there for you to use as needed. Blue is for recycling, Tan / brown is for trash.
