Manager info

About: I'm a frequent traveler and user of VRBO myself. As such, I know what's important to those who travel and how to increase their comfort level. I really do care about your stay and want you to have a fun time in Austin and serene experience in my home. I'll be available by phone and text throughout your stay to answer any questions you have. I will be staying across town so if there is any emergency I can be there to help out in a matter of minutes.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is a 'green home' meaning that it's construction was done to maximize energy conservation (direction of windows, cooling concrete floors due to Texas heat, preservation of trees, heavy insulation) and limit chemicals (wood is untreated). This was a real draw for me when I chose to buy this house.
