This is a very spacious master bedroom with a private en suite bathroom and walk-in closet. This spacious room is furnished with a large desk and executive chair for your laptop, and we have free wifi. The bed has fresh 450 thread-count sheets and high-end bedding with plenty of plush pillows. The bathroom has a tub and shower, and is stocked with plenty of bath towels, hand towels, and washcloths. The bedroom has two large windows that over look the deck, and a skylight making the room sunny and bright. There is a ceiling fan and the house has central A/C and heat. The room has an Ipod dock and speakers. There is a high-efficiency washer and dryer on the first floor stocked with dye-and-fragrance-free detergent for sensitive skin and fabric softener. We also have an iron, ironing board, and steamer if your clothes need to be touched up.
Downstairs, the living room has a large sectional couch that faces an indoor fireplace and a large flatscreen tv. We have cable, Netflix, HBO Go, Hulu+, a Blueray and DVD player, Playstation, Ipod dock and speakers, etc. There is a half bath for your convenience on the first floor. The kitchen is stocked with both coffee and espresso makers. Outside on our large private deck is a gas-grill and fire pit with seating. We don't have any children and are a non-smoking home inside, but you are welcome to smoke while you enjoy the deck. We will have two cuddly, small dogs beginning in August 2013. They are "hypo-allergenic" in that they don't shed fur. Breakfast of toast, yogurt, fruit, etc. can be made available.
Parking in a large private driveway is available. Located in the the famous 78704 neighborhood, we are perfectly situated for ACL (we walk every year), SXSW, and F1. We are moments from South Congress, ZIlker Park, Barton Springs, Auditorium Shores, the Alamo Drafthouse, and Downtown. Our home is seconds away from a gas station, liquor store, grocery store, CVS and Walgreens, coffee shops (both locally-owned and Starbucks), and some of the best dining in the city (Uchi, Olivia, Barley Swine, Henri's, Lick, Maria's, Chuy's, etc.). We are within ten minutes of the capitol building and UT. We are also convenient to the Circuit of Americas F1 complex and the airport. There is a bus stop five-minutes form our home that will take you downtown and points north.
We absolutely love Austin and are happy to make recommendations for restaurants, nightlife, activities, day-trips and must-see attractions. We're very happy to welcome guests who are generally responsible and respectful. If you need a ride to and from the airport, let us know. If our schedule permits we will pick you up and/or drop you off for a fee. Otherwise, a cab from the airport runs about $40.
We had a great stay with Sarah and Jesse! There home is awesome and inviting. It was a beautiful short walk to Zilker Park for ACL. If we needed any advice Sarah was available to help. If you are headed to Austin stay here.
