Lubbock house description

This lovely two-story home has four bedrooms and two separate baths. When you walk into the home you'll immediately see the downstairs living area with a large flatscreen TV, DVD player, books, recliners, and couch. The kitchen/dining has a clear view of the backyard to watch the kids play. Our kitchen is fully equipped with some condiments and spices available for cooking. The dining area is attached and the table is solid and sturdy with a glass top for easy clean-up. Step outside and you'll enjoy the covered patio with charcoal BBQ grill and table. The downstairs also has a tub/shower/jacuzzi combination with a view of the backyard. Next you'll see the first bedroom which has two twins. One twin has railings for those toddlers still working on not falling out of bed along with toy chest. The laundry room is off of this room with washer/dryer and detergent and supplies. Access to the backyard can be found through a door off of this room, too. Heading upstairs you'll find another living area for reading, games, intimate conversations. Three bedrooms and one bath look onto this space. Each bedroom has one queen with wonderful linens. The bath is a bath/shower combo. Our home has lush towels and linens, comfortable beds -- and quiet! Our guests tell us over and over how quiet the home is from outside noises. The upstairs living also has a game armoire and a game table for your family time together.

Please note: Must be 25 or above.

Pet Recommendations: This home does not accept pets, -- we do have two other homes that will. While we realize that pets are like children and many people never spend a night away from them we also realize that a majority of our clients prefer a smoke-free, no-pet policy. We have gone to a complete no-pet policy due to substantial upgrading of our home over the past year. However, we hope this doesn't keep you from visiting us! If you do not have a trusted caretaker for your beloved pet while you're traveling to Lubbock you might like to vet (pun intended) these companies in Lubbock. However, clients should remember that at no time can a pet be brought on to the property of the home. If pet presents are found in the yard or obvious pet hair in the home a $200.00 fee will be required -- it will also affect the security deposit and possible immediate dismissal of guest from the property.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: We started with VRBO about 8 years ago and were the first in Lubbock -- so we have a lot of experience keeping our guests happy and providing clean, lovely homes for your enjoyment. I grew up learning about this business with my parents and sisters, when my parent bought this home for our out-of-country guests and interns. When they no longer needed it for their company they experimented with VRBO and loved it! I grew up helping with the home and learning about real estate management and property maintenance. Now I'm only involved in the booking and live in Oklahoma where I work for Michelin Tire Company. I graduated from Texas Tech with an Industrial Engineering degree and went to Coronado High School here in Lubbock. The little elementary school down the street -- Hardwick Elementary -- is where I started in the first grade. I have great memories of the park next door and walking home from school.

                  Why the Owner Chose Lubbock:
                  This property caught our eye when we needed a home for our interns and out of country guests who came to Lubbock for training in the cotton industry. We choose this property because of the great floor plan, which give privacy to the guests with four bedrooms and two separate baths. It's centrally located and has wonderful neighbors. The previous owners loved this home and the condition was excellent -- this certainly caught our eye. We've worked hard to keep it in great shape as well as improve a few areas. We added the covered parking and the covered patio, making this home shady and inviting even on the hottest of Lubbock days. The grass is wonderful to play on if you have children and is large enough for a tag football game or a game of catch. The two separate living areas gives privacy and spreads the family out a little, while the cozy kitchen brings everyone together for the meals. We simply couldn't pass this property up because of its location, its condition, its floor plan, its privacy and its charm.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This home offers two living areas and covered parking with a covered patio. It's unique because it offers three bedrooms and one bath on the second story -- all of which face on to the living area. The downstairs bedroom is great for children or for grandparents who don't want to climb the stairs -- and the bath is right off the bedroom downstairs with an easy step-in tub/shower/jacuzzi. The large covered patio offers a great place to sit outside on cool Lubbock nights and the recliners in the downstairs living area are a great place for that Saturday afternoon nap. The home is well located. Its charm is obvious. We welcome up to 8 guests in the home at a time -- making it great for teams, families, girls' weekends. We even had a wedding in the back yard!
