We LOVE Austin, TX!! We do, just love it. We also love to travel but will always call Austin home. There is just something so genuine and cool about it. We bought our condo in 2006 and completely remodeled it, not a task we would do again, but we are very happy we did. We live here with our beloved shih-tzu, Mila who we adopted from Wee Rescue shortly after we moved in. She is fabulous.
Important things to know about us, we love to entertain and cook and while our home is small we believe it reflects those qualities. In a former career, I was an interior designer, so, it was important to make sure our home was as cozy as possible before we offered it up to others.
When traveling, we have always had the best experiences when we have stayed with someone or at least in someone's home. Hotels have their amenities, but the absolute best way to feel like you're really in a city is to stay in the community with the people who live there. Our neighborhood is particularly proud with the motto "78704 it's not just a zip code, it's a lifestyle." We house everyone from hippies to millionaires, and most days you can't tell the difference. We love it!
Should you stay in our home we are always happy to share recommendations for what to do while in town and if we don't know about something, we usually know someone who does. Maybe most important, we can talk you through the streets of Austin. If you're not from here the fact that a single street can have up to 4 different names can confuse even the most GPS savvy person. Getting lost in an unknown city can be one of the greatest parts of the trip but should you ever find yourself a little too lost, feel free to call and we can usually talk you through to your destination.
Feel free to drop us a note if you have any questions. We're happy to share and we hope you will come stay in our home and visit this wonderful city.
