I have lived in Austin for 15 years and can assist in any way with suggestions on what to do and where to go while here.
Home owners will most likely be present when renting these rooms. We do own dogs and one cat. The entire downstairs is tiled. If you are concerned with pet allergies we do not allow any of our animals in the rooms we host.
We also take care of our handicap sister who will most likely be in home as well.
We will give you as much privacy as you wish. We both work weird schedules so we will be in and out of home.
I am new to Airbnb so if you would like references personal (friends) and/or professional (Sheriff's office) don't hesitate to ask. With that being said, yes, we are law enforcement!!
We do not confirm on guests who have not been verified through Airbnb.
Thank you for looking!! Leia

If we are out of town during your stay there will be no access to pool (liability reasons) unless prior arrangements have been made.

Other Things to Note
If you have questions for us please ask before you book... I'm usually really good about responding back pretty quickly (except middle of night). I would rather you ask us questions than book and be unhappy with your stay.
Also, if you have questions about our house rules, please ask... We do not intend for it to be harsh, we have just learned it is wiser to be honest up front than disappoint in the future. This has been a very fun adventure and we are still learning as we go!!
We considered ourselves to be pretty laid back before starting this adventure but the list below shows that some are more laid back than we are!! We are only listing the following rules because each have occurred and we felt that they needed to be addressed. Please let me know if you have any questions regarding anything! Thank you
