I have house-cleaners here 3 days a week and it's difficult to find a spec of dust anywhere. House is always professionally cleaned with clean linens before rental.

I have a toy poodle featured on the couch in the living room, but take him with me when I'm gone.

Entire house.

Interaction with Guests

I am happy to interact and assist in any way guests would like. This is my home, perfectly maintained and I'm selective about who rents it. I have had mostly excellent experiences and made lifetime friends with some of the guests.

The Neighborhood

Hyde Park is the quintessential historic central Austin neighborhood occupied by predominantly UT professors, business owners, families and students. It's the largest Local Historic District in Austin and the housing stock is protected and preserved.

Getting around

Bus line is less than one block from the house. Wish we were a larger city with a train or subway system. Our light rail is pretty limited...

  • Great house and Michelle is a very accommodating host/hostess. Lots of high end finishes, clean and comfortable. Accordion door opening up to the outdoor deck provide a great mix of indoor/outdoor living. I would definitely rent from Michelle again

  • Let's start with the hostess, Michelle. She is very kind, thorough and easy to talk to. Please be ready to be respectful to not only her but the property. It delivers. The master bedroom and bath are A+. I'm gonna steal that comfortable bed set up idea! The house has full amenities should you need them. And although I have no kids, it's kid friendly as well. You'll be entertained by two finches in the house Popo and Pip but rest assured you'll never hear them unless you walk by them in the den. They are characters. Aside from the stunning pictures which represents the property accurately, the neighborhood is quiet but not dead! It's a cute area with an artsty feel but not hippie. Upper casual class with quaint style. There are nearby (walking) restaurants and cafe's which offer character. No chain corporate types but local merchants. Everybody is nice and you feel welcome. The location is also very accessible (by car) to downtown with Hwy 35 entry ramp less than a mile away. Downtown is 10-15 minutes. UT is like 7 minutes.

    The house is not meant for a "party" but it's clearly laid out to entertain friends with a glass of wine on the deck. I truly enjoyed my stay and would recommend this to anyone. I just hope the word doesn't get out too much :)

    Lastly, I feel like I made a friend with Michelle. She is classy, genuine and hospitable. Cheers!

  • We had a wonderful time at Michelle's house. Michelle was very accommodating and helpful with information on the area, the house itself was perfect – lots of space and very well taken care of –, and the neighborhood was great – a few cool restaurants and a bakery right down the street. I would highly recommend staying here.
