Home owners will most likely be present when renting these rooms. We do own dogs and one cat. Our entire downstairs is tile. If you are concerned with allergies we do not allow our animals in any of 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 most of the time.
If you would like references personal (friends) and/or professional (Sheriff's office) don't hesitate to ask. That being said, yes, we are in law enforcement!!
We do not confirm on guests who are not confirmed through Airbnb.
Thank you for looking!! Leia and Keri

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

-Garage is off limits at all times, no exceptions.

-Please be courteous to others sleeping in the house and turn down all noise by 10pm.
-If we are out of town during your stay the back door will be locked. This is due to liability reasons with our pool.
-Please be courteous of our belongings and rooms that are locked.
-Please, please, do not let our cat or dog outside.
About the Host, Leia & Keri
My motto is Love, Live, and Laugh. How can you go wrong if you have all three?
My partner and I have lived in Austin for about 15 years. We really enjoy the outdoors, we tend to be doing anything outdoors on our day's off including: kayaking, hiking, camping, cycling, or boating.
We commonly end up in the nearby beautiful Hill Country wine area going from one winery to the next doing tastings.
I'm an avid book reader and neat freak. While my partner tends to be the more "laid back" type!
I hope you give us a chance to earn your trust and get to enjoy our home and this wonderful city. We have been part of the Airbnb community for about two years and have enjoyed every minute of it. We have met travelers from all over and now have friends all over!
Thank you, Leia and Keri
