Hello everyone and welcome to my wonderful listing right outside of Austin in Round Rock! This is one of the best areas you'll find in Texas. The scenery is beautiful and serene. If you look around, you'll find streams, rivers, watering holes, country hills and tall trees. Even though we're close to nature, there's still a vibrant nightlife nearby!
My house is a cozy place with all the modern furnishings a traveler may need. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!
You will have access to the entire downstairs of the home including entire kitchen. Plates, flatware and cups are available and you are welcome to use the oven and cooking utensils. You are welcome to use the refrigerator and cupboard for food storage as you wish. I do have driveway parking available.
Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as requested or required. I enjoy meeting different people and their pets if they travel with any.
Quiet bedroom type community with lots of trees and close to charming downtown Round Rock and Georgetown down the highway which is also a very interesting visit. This is a family-oriented neighborhood. Plenty of places close by to eat or drink.
There is Austin wide or local cab/ridesharing services. MetroRail is nearby if you want to avoid traffic into downtown Austin.
Other Things to Note
Austin is home to the greatest music festivals on the planet, ACL (Austin City Limits, SXSW (South by Southwest, etc)
NO SMOKING...I will be most likely will remain upstairs most of the time, when not working, except for food and drink breaks. Full kitchen and utensils available.
We loved our stay so much we extended it. We feel very much at home. Rick has just been an awesome host. Both he and his home, I could not recommend more highly. I think that as more people stay there will be many more positive reviews to come for Rick and he will be very successful at this. We even get to share loving companionship of one of the dogs he boards. We adore a little Jack Russell terrier that stays off and on and is so sweet and well behaved. As someone who has worked with animals and shelters I highly recommend him as an animal caregiver as well, which is so much more than just someone that boards animals. He takes care of them as if they were his own. He treats his guest as family, his home is beautiful and the room is very comfortable. Its bright with the blinds open and the back yard if beautiful. I noticed from the kitchen window that people are out walking together and with their dogs. Its a peaceful, safe neighborhood and a quiet tranquil house, with a great host. We really couldn't ask for more.
I chose Rick's house based off and Jamie's review below and the photos and both were spot on. His home is in a beautiful quiet neighborhood, The room is very comfortable. We also had the down stairs. My husband works nights and everything worked out great. Each room is pretty quiet. I felt at home the first night. We even booked a 2nd week during our time of transitioning in my husbands hours and our home hunting. It could have been stressful but it was tranquil in this lovely home and atmosphere that Rick provides. He really is a gracious host that respects privacy but also is friendly and will have a conversation if you engage him. I would highly recommend him and his home to anyone one whether they are traveling, in transition, here home hunting. He is very flexible with the best of people skills.
Rick was a gracious host. My dog loved him too:) His home is lovely, he is organized and had a great suggestion on the dinner place that night. He is very respectful of privacy and offered the whole downstairs to aid in my comfort. I'm still house hunting in Austin so I hope to stay with him again.
