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.
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.
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...
Other Things to Note
STR license # Pending
In Austin we have 11% occupancy tax. This must be paid separately at the time of check in and is 11% of the rental rate, not the cleaning fee. Rentals 30 days or longer do not need to pay this.
No smoking indoors, no pointy-heeled shoes (longleaf pine floors), 10 people maximum, no excessively loud music. If you cook, please know how to use a gas stove.
Must love lovingly restored historic homes and not kick molding, or play softball indoors.
