This is a great 3 bedroom in the historical Hyde Park neighborhood of Austin. Hyde Park is a walkable neighborhood just a few blocks north of campus meaning its in the heart of the city. Each bedroom is outfitted with a queen bed and focused on comfort and a good nights sleep. The house has two full bathrooms. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you might need from coffee pots, pans, to sharp knives, to blenders. The living areas are incredibly open. The kitchen looks onto the dining room and the living room allowing for fun communication amongst the family and friends. The front has a cute porch with rocking chairs while the back has a large deck that is great for lounging, grilling, and listening to music. The house is nestled in a residential community allowing for easy street parking. Walking distance to the house is Texas's famous Central Market for all your grocery needs. Coffee shops and cute places to dine are also easily accessible.
I treat my guests just as I would want to be treated while exploring a city. I answer questions in any way possible and give my suggestions when asked via any form of communication (phone, text, email). I even write a blog trying to give them ideas of what to do in Austin. www.youraustinweekend.com
Other essentials are certainly included linens, washer, dryer/flat screen, cable, internet/hair dryer, 60 inch TV are all included. The house is dog friendly with an area in the back that makes the dogs life easy.
The house also backs up to the easiest bus stop in Austin that takes you straight to downtown, the football stadium, to campus, F1 Shuttles, and to South Congress. You are a few blocks away from a some great local coffee shops and restaurants. As well you are about a mile away from the best tacos in town at Taco Deli.
I know you will treat my house, just like I would treat yours. Cheers!

About the owner: Hello All,
I am a travel minded University of Texas MBA graduate living in Austin. In a perfect world I would rent this place short term and travel around the world. (too bad life is a little tricker than that :) My career has spanned teaching 4th Grade, aerospace, and tech start ups. Maybe my business career has taught me a bit about customer service. I enjoy each chance to get to talk to my renters. Whether its via text, phone, or email, I want to make each persons stay in Austin as fun, exciting, and tasty as possible. Whether its just exploring Austin, coming in for a wedding, or taking advantage of one Austin's big events, I can promise this cottage is right for you.
Why the Owner Chose Hyde Park: The property was an easy choice. Once you walk through the house and a get a feel of the neighborhood it just all clicks. The house is an old shotgun style 'Sears Roebuck' home that has been beautifully redone. The porches scream at you to come outside, while inside the Kitchen opens up to the Dining Room which opens up to the Living Room, making the entire area open for great conversation with friends and family.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Once you rent this place, you will realize how 'homey' the neighborhood feels. Trees line all the streets and all the houses have a similar tone on tone feel that takes you back a bit. Once you walk to get yourself coffee at Quacks, you will understand why the historic area of Hyde Park is a true Austin gem. When inside the house, the living room and the kitchen are both very open. Meaning when one person is making a special treat, they still feel part of the action. Lastly, no vacation is complete without beds that make you jealous. I can promise each bed is top of the line and might even leave you wanting one :)
