About this listing
2,000 square foot, 3 BR/two bath house in South Austin available for rent during sxsw. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY - THIS IS A BIT OF A CUSTOM RENTAL SITUATION and it doesn't totally match the menu options! (Namely, you will notice that the listing says I have one bed and I can fit 10 people, which is clearly silly :) I'm currently in the process of renovating to put the house on the market in April, and have already moved most of my stuff out of the space. Currently sleeps 2-3, with one queen bed and a very comfortable sofa - but I also have two *completely* empty bedrooms in the house right now, and could easily bring in 4-6 extra air mattresses for an additional fee of $20 apiece, if you wanna load the house up. (You're also more than welcome to bring sleeping bags or air mattresses of your own, or to borrow my sleeping bag and whatever spare blankets I have laying around, if you're not interested in my bringing the air mattresses for you. I'm very flexible.)
The Cap Metro #10 bus is a block from the house, and it's a straight shot up South First that drops you off at Congress and 2nd, near the convention center.
Full kitchen with granite counters, gas oven/stove, dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave, blender, coffee maker. Wifi, HD cable TV/DVR/DVD/VCR with HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, The Movie Channel, Starz. Utility room with washer/dryer at your disposal. Nice backyard with gas grill, fire pit and gazebo for your use. No smoking indoors, please. The house will be professionally cleaned prior to your stay. Two minutes drive from the H-E-B grocery store, five minutes drive from Southpark Meadows, which has Wal-Mart, Target, Best Buy, movie theaters, restaurants, etc. There will be one small and very friendly cat in the house. If you'll also agree to dogsit for me while you're there, I'll happily knock $20/day off your bill. (You don't have to walk them… just to make sure they're not hungry or thirsty, and to let them outside when they need to go…)
As I mentioned, we are currently in the process of painting and staging the house to put it on the market, so the space will be upgraded during February with new lighting fixtures and ceiling fans, and a pleasant neutral paint palette, prior to your stay! (And I will happily post new pics as soon as we have some - but suffice to say the place looks better, not worse!) Please note that the house is perhaps a tad bit barren since we've moved a lot of stuff out - most of the personal possessions will already be out, and you will have full use of all drawers and closets, sheets, blankets, linens, dishes, kitchen utensils, etc. (You will be responsible for your own food and toiletries.) Otherwise, the basic furniture is all there in the common areas, but the space is lacking the "natural charm" that comes from having things like throw pillows and pictures on the wall :) This is a basic accommodation in a nice, clean South Austin house while you're in town for the biggest party in the universe.
NO LOUD PARTIES OUTSIDE - i don't mind if you use the backyard, it's quite nice, but please be mindful of the neighbors, they're all elderly and they go to bed at a pretty normal hour.
