About the owner: Greetings current and future guests. I am a long-time Austin resident and love to share the fun and beauty of Austin with others through my vacation home. The home is especially popular with guests in town for an Austin-style wedding, weekend stays for football games, film and music festivals, as well as working professionals in Austin on short-term work assignments. My guests also include folks living right here in Austin who are remodeling, or are between the sale and purchase of a new home. I have hosted international guests from England, Belgium, Spain, France, Germany, Switzerland and Mexico. Come stay for a weekend or a month! I will be happy to provide you with recommendations for well-known Austin destinations as well as hidden favorites with Austin residents!
Why the Owner Chose Austin, TX, USA:
I bought this house because of the great floorplan for entertaining, the great neighborhood amenities including pools, hiking trails, parks, the safety and quality of the neighborhood, and the great location relative to things to do in Austin.
