Interaction with guests
If you have any questions, just let us know. Typically we are pretty hands-off, but available to assist with any issues.
Historic Travis Heights is one of the most convenient and sought after neighborhoods in Austin. Bike and pedestrian-friendly--anything you may need is no more than a 12-minute walk away--but this street is quiet and calm.
The house rules are printed out and on butcher block table or refrigerator.
I came to the University of Texas 40 years ago, fell in love with this town and never left. I've lived in Travis Heights for the majority of those 40 years and wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
I'm a professional, private chef and my husband owns a build and design company. We support local businesses and are big proponents of the local food movement.
We invite you to enjoy our wonderful city in the comfort of a beautiful home. Come and stay here..you may never want to leave!
