About this listing
My house is warm and cosy, with tons of character and natural light and is in Crestview, one of Austin's hottest neighborhoods. I moved in here twelve years ago and have never wanted to leave. I hope you love my great little house as much as I do!
Cute, one bedroom, one bath bungalow with yard in north central Austin's charming Brentwood/Crestview neighborhood. Duplex shares one common wall with neighbor. Approx. 6 miles to downtown, and is located directly on the #5 bus route that will take you straight to downtown. Light rail stop is approx. 7 blocks away. Walking distance to coffee shop and close to local eateries and grocery stores. One parking space in driveway, plus street parking. Sleeps 3 (one queen size bed, one SUPER COMFY full length couch). Central air & heat, internet access (no TV, but you can watch shows & movies on Hulu or Netflix on my desktop iMac). Mix yourself a margarita and relax out in the backyard!
The house is colorful, full of light, casual, and comfortable. Nothing upscale or stuffy about it, yet clean and stylish. Crestview/Brentwood is an awesome neighborhood, totally close-in and accessible to all of Austin's major thoroughfares.
Three cats and two small dogs live in this house. The house is clean, but I know some people are allergic and sensitive, so I'm mentioning it. The animals will be not be there during your stay (unless having the cats around would be an extra perk for you! I normally board them, but if you specifically would like for them to be present, just let me know.) Also, please just keep in mind that I live here, and it's not just a rental property, so my clothes will be hanging in the closet and my toiletries will be in the linen closet, etc. I thought that was an important detail!
Guests will have access to the house, yard, and driveway.
Interaction with Guests
I would like to meet my guests when they arrive, but do not require you to do so.
There is a coffee shop 8 blocks down the street from the house, and a great little deli about 4 blocks up (coincidentally named "Little Deli.") There are also tons of restaurants on Burnet Road, which is about a half mile away from the house.
House is located directly on the #5 bus line, which goes to the UT campus and downtown Austin. The light rail stop is about 7 blocks away and also goes downtown. My house also happens to be on a bike route, if you will be getting around that way. Crestview neighborhood is conveniently located near several major thoroughfares, and is very accessible to the rest of the city.
