About This Listing
Only 10 minutes from downtown, we are nestled in the hills on one acre of quiet, lushly landscaped grounds, with swimming pool, expansive deck, fountain and views to write home about. The interior is recently renovated and professionally designed.
There are 3 bedrooms with 2 queen beds and one twin bed. A very deep, comfortable sofa can sleep one more. Both baths are beautifully appointed with floating vanities, excellent showers and natural light. As an interior designer, I enjoy making my home a welcome, uniquely appointed and comfortable getaway, with saltillo floors, plush furnishings and everything you would need for a pampered stay. Cable, internet and ample parking on the sport court provided along with Continental breakfast for your first day. Restaurants and shopping are 5 minutes away.
South by Southwest (SXSW) is an Austin, Texas based company dedicated to planning conferences, trade shows, festivals and other events. SXSW first began in 1987 and is centered on the downtown Austin Convention Center. Each of the three parts runs relatively independently, with different start and end dates. In 2011, the conference lasted for ten days, with interactive lasting for five, music for six, and film lasting the longest at nine days.
Austin City Limits (often abbreviated as ACL) is an American public television music program recorded live in Austin, Texasby Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) Public television member station KLRU, and broadcast on many PBS stations around the United States. The show helped Austin to become widely known as "Live Music Capital of the World," and is the only television show to receive the National Medal of Arts, which it was awarded in 2003.
Initially created to celebrate the music of Texas—featuring western swing, Texas blues, Tejano music, progressive country, and rock n' roll—the series has gone on to feature regional, national and international artists performing a wide range of musical styles, including jazz, alternative country, alternative rock, folk music, and jam band.
No smoking, pets, parties, unauthorized guests or key sharing. No bands or band managers please. Loud noise reverberates off the surrounding hills, so please respect the peace and quiet of the neighbors. My home office is on the property with separate access. I enjoy providing an exceptionally clean and well appointed home and hope that you'll treat it as you would your mother's home! Most of all, I want your stay in Austin and at my home to be memorable and enjoyable.
I rented this house for 4 coworkers for the South by Southwest Conference in Austin. They came back very satisfied. The home was beautiful and clean and the hostess, Janet, couldn't have been more hospitable.
About the Host, Janet
A native Texan and Austinite for over 30 years, I feel that I live in the best city in the world. It feeds my love of dancing, books, dogs, food, music, outdoors, exercise, history and landscapes. I never get tired of traveling to enjoy any culture where people celebrate life, music, food and beauty. As an interior designer, I love to make places more interesting and enjoyable. My remarkable daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter complete the picture.
