This charming Craftsman style home, with all the modern comforts and appliances, was completely remodeled in 2006. We believe in living minimally, which means that you won't find clutter in this home. The house is on a quiet street and is kept very clean! We don't have pets. The house features dark hardwood floors and travertine tiles.
The house has three bedrooms and sleeps five comfortably. The main bedroom has a King size bed. The second bedroom has a bunk bed with an additional pull out trundle. The third bedroom/office has a twin day bed. All beds have nice mattresses. We enjoy an open floor plan, with free flow between living room, dinning room and kitchen, an ample front porch for outdoor dining and relaxing. One and a half baths.
We do not have cable, but get several basic channels on the 40 inch TV, have a BluRay DVD and capacity to stream through Netflixs. The house has WIFI. Outdoor gas grill for BBQ and fully equipped kitchen.
There are three great parks within walking distance from the home, for those with children and the home is situated on a dead end block, so street traffic is limited. Toys in the bedroom suitable for children ages 4-7 :)

After checking into another AirBnB listing that turned out to be unsatisfactory, I booked Alexander's home. He was able to accommodate me and my friends last minute during the week of SXSW. The house was neat, clean and looked just like the pictures. The neighborhood has lots of character and just a short bike ride to pretty much everything you could want as well as close to the convention center.
Thank you for hosting us, Alexander. I would definitely recommend your home to others looking to stay in a fun, yet quiet part of town.
The house was charming and comfortable. We had a spectacular time.
Such gracious hosts, thank you for having us.
Alex was awesome. Prompt, very communicative and responsive. The place was clean, well appointed and in a nice neighborhood. It wasn't exactly walking distance to downtown - about 2 miles away. But Alex let me borrow his bike - which was great. Would definitely stay there again.
