About this listing

Just in time for ACL and Formula One 2015, my newly remodeled house offers four bedrooms and three baths to kick back in and relax after a day at the races or ACL Music Festival. The Barton Hills neighborhood is quiet and beautiful and near downtown.

The Space

4 Br, 3 Bath 1950s home in 78704 south central Austin, Texas near Zilker Park and Barton Springs. Perfect for ACL, SXSW, Formula One etc.. Or if you want a room longer to share with the homeowner, I got that too - fully furnished for $750 per month. Cable TV, wireless internet, hot tub, covered porch with ceiling fans and speakers and a Webber gas grill. Must like dogs. I can be a great host if I am available.

Please note: During the big events, SWSX, ACL, Formula One, (please notice the price increase to $800 per night for the whole house) if I am available I can drive you to spots, however; most things are within walking distance - 24-hour restaurant and Walgreens, gas station, shops, the famous Broken Spoke country dance hall with live music every night except Sun-Mon and even a Capital Metro city bus two blocks away on South Lamar that can take you downtown four miles away. Barton Springs pool and the 14-mile hike and bike green belt are both in the neighborhood.

I do have two dogs but they have their own doggie door and constant water supply. They will go with me if I decide to go stay elsewhere.

I have an 19-year-old son who lives with me off and on.

I am an active 50-year woman who plays volleyball twice a week and works as a TV Producer for Texas Parks and Wildlife. I like meeting new people and cooking, hanging out on the back porch and watching the birds and sipping beer under the ceiling fans. I have had one roommate from China for two years and one triathlete who wanted to train in the neighborhood by running up the hills for as little as four months - competition called.

House Rules

Just treat my home like you were visiting your fiance's parents and all should be fine. Maybe that's too scarey. Please be respectful of my neighbors when it comes to noise, many have children or are elderly. Thanks! NO SMOKERS PLEASE!
