Private Homes house description

Located in the Heart of Austin with serious major shopping centers such as The Domain; Arboretum; Gateway and a long list of5 Star, Mid Range and fast food Restaurants, Organic Food Stores, Entertainment Venues, Big Box Stores and Expressways to get you anywhere fast.

This home came into the VRBO program in 2010, our guest loved the location and amenities so much our home we are having returning guests. Reservations for longer stays have resulted due to the fresh condition of our property and how quickly we respond to any issue or concern.

Our home has been extensively remodeled with two new skylights, fresh designer interior paints, new hardwood and tile floors, 5 ceiling fans, a new hall bath with oversized shower and bench plus a very quiet high efficiency Carrier A/C ( you can hardly hear it run). Central Heat & Air.

The home has 3 bedrooms; two with queen beds and one bedroom with two twin beds. Top of the line linens and plenty of closet space.

Our kitchen is fully equipped with every cooking ware you will need and our linens are of high quality for perfect sleeping.

Our home has hard wired and battery back up smoke detectors and night lights throughout the property for seeing at night.

The area is filled with young adults and seniors who have chosen the area because of the ease of getting anywhere quickly, yet being able to slip into any National recognized and local stores only minutes away.

This home does have a very small accessory apartment attached, but the tenant is very quiet, has leased the unit for over 7 years and has a home office. One would not expect to see him on a daily basis.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1995

                  About the owner: Our passion is to provide an outstanding property where our guests will continue to come back year after year. We have a large family with 11 grandchildren and more to come so having a home large enough for families to be able to come to Austin and share a home with friends is important for us. I am a Founding Member and Director of the Austin Rental Alliance, an organization of Vacation Rental Homes for the Austin Area. I am a licensed Texas Real Estate Broker and owner of Easter and Easter, Realtors

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  Austin has grown up around this quiet area and Neighborhood. The area has the most fantastic shopping just minutes from the front door. This home was built when it was considered almost out of town but now Austin has expanded and moved next door. The number of Superior and Fast Food restaurants will just amaze you, plus the selection of Organic Food Stores,Starbucks,Walmart which are just blocks away. And you can catch any major highway to get you to the Airport, UT or Downtown within 15 minutes (non rush hour drive time).

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The minute you step into this home you know we have spent hours making it cozy and comfortable with quality furnishing, crown molding, new hardwoods, top of the line linens and bedding. The home is a smoke-free residence. We have spent additional money on energy features to make the home as energy efficient as possible. Additional care was given to the drapes with light and noise blocking panels plus drapes which also reduce noise and light. It's exceptionally clean and we work hard to make your stay perfect.
