This 6 bedroom bungalow was recently updated. We just finished further renovations (Spring 2015) expanding the habitable area -- the home is now more than comfortable to accommodate 16 guests! Modern, clean, and minimal. The house is flooded with natural light. Everything in the home was carefully chosen to be as natural and eco-friendly as possible. For example, all Egyptian cotton linens. Feather duvets, Stainless steel cookware.
Great for family reunions! The City of Austin does enforce that a maximum of 6 unrelated guests can occupy a short term rental property -- so if your party will be larger than 6, it is only okay if some of you are related: cousins, siblings, etc...
Each bedroom has a plush queen bed -- the large middle bedroom has two queen beds (7 total queen beds). Note: the middle bedroom separates the front house from the back house -- and has two doors -- see floor plan in the photos. The rear living area has a fold out full size sofa bed.

There is ample outdoor area with a 2 big picnic tables to lounge around in the yard.
