Interaction with Guests
We will help get you settled and then be out of sight, but easily reached by phone or text if you need something to make your stay better.
We love that our house has an old style bungalow look, but is only seven years old. We also love how close in we live to downtown and other hip areas like SoCo and South Lamar.
There is a city bus route to downtown one block from our house.
Other Things to Note
Taxes: A new city ordinance went into effect on Jan 1st, 2014 which now requires all Short Term Rental (STR) owners to register with the city and pay a 15% tax rate per night just like a normal hotel would charge. Since Airbnb is not set up to accommodate this new fee required of owners, this fee will be collected upon check in. STR License registration has been completed and paid. STR currently pending and permit number will be displayed in photos once it is issued. Please no commercial use unless agreed upon by owner.
We are a fun family - we run a fun household - we want you to have fun too! Having said that, of course we have some rules to abide by....
If you peek in our backyard, you'll find a very tempting trampoline. Sadly, we are NOT able to offer this for your use.
Absolutely no smoking in the house. We have a darling front porch that would enjoy your company during your smoking break. Any smoke in the home will result in forfeiture of full deposit. Thank you for looking after our children in this way. =)
Austin affords many privileges. Please keep the use of our home soley for legal privileges. =)
Andrea and Kevin have the most beautiful home in a stunning location. The house was spacious enough for our large group and felt very homely. They were incredibly prepared and helpful hosts, which made the trip very easy going. Thank you so much guys, we had a wonderful stay!
We had wonderful time at the Gust household. I would highly recommend it for groups of 7 or more. Thank you once again for opening up your home to us.
I needed to find a place for 6 people from my work to attend the SXSW festival and I've been very lucky to find Andrea's place.
Andrea has been very helpful and reassurign throughout the whole process and I was very glad to communicate with her.
My colleagues were also very happy with their stay, saying Andrea's place is very cosy and nice to live in.
I am a spontaneous fun loving person who loves the outdoors. My favorite activities are riding bikes, rollerblading or hiking the greenbelt with my kids. I've never met a stranger and I enjoy making new friends.
