So I moved to Austin 4 years ago after I graduated college out in California. Made the move mostly because I have family out here but now that I've been here a while, I couldn't be happier.
This is the 3rd place I've lived here in Austin and I absolutely love it. It took me a while to figure out the town but once I did, I wanted a place in the heart of everything Austin. When I moved in I bought a bike for easy riding downtown and a kayak for those hot summer days on the river (which is like a quarter mile from my house.)
I decided to rent my place out for a number of reasons but primarily because it's a great location for visitors who want to to get the most out of Austin on a budget. Also my folks live about 20 minutes away and mom is always happy to have me so that doesnt hurt.
If you have any questions for me just let me know and I look forward to hosting your Austin vacation!
