Inspired by the uniqueness of Austin itself, our home's decor is a celebration of folk art, music and mid-century modern furnishings. Most windows have a wonderful view out into the live oak trees that surround the house or out into the greenbelt across the street which connects to Austin's famous downtown hike and bike trail as well as the other miles and miles of trails that wind through the downtown and central areas of Austin. Created by the famous landscape architect that created the urban oasis of the San Jose, our outdoor spaces have been landscaped with indigenous low water plants and flowers to reflect our respect for the environment and preservation of our water sources. Enjoy grilling or entertaining in our outdoor living room complete with grill and fire-pit while the kids play in our one of kind tree house fortress.

Shauna and Kirk's house is amazing - clean, well located, comfortable and fun. i can't say enough nice things about it, and will definitely try to return!
We stayed over SXSW and we couldn't be any more happy with our experience. The house was clean and very nice. Loved the neighborhood and loved the fact that we were walking distance to South Congress. Would definitely stay again!
The house is gorgeous, the neighborhood a short lovely walk to SoCo, and Shauna an absolutely lovely host. She stocked the fridge for us and even left a bottle of wine! I would highly recommend.
