We have pets (a Mini Schnauzer puppy, a giant white Labrador, a cat, a mini parrot and a baby tortoise) so if you have issues with pet allergies (or just don't like 'em!) then this is not the place for you. If you love animals, then you'll probably leave with 5 new best friends!
Guests will have access to the kitchen, sole use of the main bathroom, washer and dryer, Wifi and Netflix. You are welcome to cook in the kitchen and use whatever cookware or appliances you need. We will hook you up with fresh coffee and pastries in the morning!
Interaction with Guests
We are pretty laid back and don't mind if you want to take a day off from SXSW and just lounge around the house in PJs watching T.V. and noshing on breakfast tacos (we may even join you!). We can also point you in the direction of great local restaurants, bars, shopping and outdoor recreation areas. Basically, we'll do our best to make sure you feel comfortable and have everything you need to make your stay in Austin fun and memorable!
Windsor Park is a diverse neighborhood in "Old Austin" replete with funky yard art, great parks, neighborhood bars/restaurants, a brand new grocery store and easy access to I35. Downtown is a quick 5 minute drive down I35.
There is a Capital Metro bus that can take you from Windsor Park to Downtown in about 20 minutes.
No smoking in the house but smoking is allowed on the back patio.
Amazing house and incredible accommodations. Full kitchen and 2 beds in the 2 bedrooms. The office was perfect for a 3rd giant air mattress that was provided by Derek and Jessica.
They were incredibly accommodating and left us some nice snacks as well! Hesitant to leave *too* positive of feedback at the risk of losing out on staying here again next year!
About the Host, Derek & Jessica
Hello! I'm a high school English teacher and my husband is a technology business guy. We have been living in Austin for about 9 years now and are still finding new things to love about this city! We enjoy traveling near and far, trying out new recipes in the kitchen, kicking back with a movie in our comfy den, taking our dogs (and bird!) for a walk to the neighborhood park and checking out all of the new bars, restaurants and stores popping up around the area. We hope you'll enjoy where we live as much as we do!
