Southampton house description

Relax during your stay in Austin at the Dandelion Muse Guest House, a quiet ranch house on a shaded lot in laid-back South Austin. A nice place to getaway but still be close to it all. Enjoy the tall oak, elm, and pecan trees, a large wooden deck and herb garden in back as well as your own peaceful egg-shaped swimming pool.

Quaint, clean, peaceful, and fully furnished - great for good sleep and enjoyment. Hardwood floors throughout, berber in the bedrooms. There is a queen all-latex bed in the main bedroom, truly a treat with all-cotton, high thread count sheets. The other bedrooms have high-quality, thick full sized futons (one with inner coils, the other wool-wrapped), and all guests are provided with high-quality, all-cotton linens. The house is cleaned using environmentally responsible products. Nicely equipped kitchen. Washer/dryer in the house. Chickering upright piano. High-speed wireless internet (6 Mbps) and free Netflix streaming movies with a Roku box.

                                  Zip up to downtown in about 10 minutes, UT in 15. Or take the scenic route and drive up South Lamar, South First, or South Congress as you enjoy creative local businesses and classic Austin restaurants and music clubs, such as the Broken Spoke, Saxon Pub, and the SOCO shopping district. South 1st is also a great drive, featuring Jovita's and several trailer gourmet sites. If you would like to commute, the Capitol Metro bus, with a bus stop just a block away, can take you to the ACL Music Festival or a little further into downtown Austin.

                                  Newflower Market, an organics-oriented grocery store, is in short walking distance. Five minutes driving will take you to the Westgate Mall, where you can shop at a world class gourmet grocery called Central Market, as well as an 11-theater cinema, local favorite Amy's Ice Cream and some nice restaurants, including Hyde Park Bar and Grill, Madam Mam's Thai Cuisine, and Asian-oriented Buffet Palace.

                                  Just 20 minutes to the Airport or Hill Country.
