Why The Owner chose Dellana Hills

Couldn't had said it better ...

Virginia Woodruff Loves Austin.

Huffington Post 10/31/2012

Dear Austin,

You are not either/or. You are and. Coffee and beer. BBQ joints and vegan potlucks. Students and Techies. State-capital bureaucrats and weed-toking slackers -- admittedly those are sometimes the same people. I love you because you contain multitudes.

You are the 'live music capital of the world' and the 'I bleed orange' city of college football fanatics.

You have a hippie spirit infused with high-tech financing. Your patron saint is Willie Nelson, your avuncular Polonius is Kinky Friedman and your wealthy stepfather is Michael Dell. Your current contrast-in-residence is the chief of Whole Foods, who gives his employees health insurance while defending their right not to have it.

You meet hundred-degree heat with spring-fed pools. You are beer and running, ideally at the same time.

It's no surprise this is where Outlaw Country was born. You are the cultural retreat for Texans who find themselves not quite fitting in at home. You offer an oasis of blue in a big red desert. When people fall across the city border, they are accepted as they are, and dole out kindness in return.

Your city council created an official day for the late thong-wearing, cross-dressing beloved transient, Leslie.

You entered the Guinness Book of World Records by having the most people ever dance to Michael Jackson's 'Thriller.' They did it in the plaza in front of a classical music hall.

As much as you like to have a good time, you also like to keep fit. There's a run event almost very weekend. You've been home to Lance Armstrong, Andy Roddick, Kevin Durant, and a host of Olympians. Your jewel is the hike-and-bike trail along a river the locals call a lake. The last time I went I saw a woman running in a track suit and head scarf.

What makes this house unique

The tasteful, contemporary home is just across the river from downtown, but is set amidst a bamboo forest with lush native Texas landscaping and a wet weather creek, offering privacy, quiet, and abundant wildlife. The home offers all the amenities of a high end hotel, but with space for communal gatherings, spacious work areas, and outdoor leisure. There are multiple patios and screened porches, including an outdoor fireplace, firepit, and an upstairs sleeping porch.

Concierge amenities available upon request, including a personal driver, bicycles, meal preparation and catering, daily housekeeping, errands, and childcare.

This house is a green home, and includes filtered water, air cleaners, geothermal heating and A/C, pesticide-free landscaping and pest control, and a high quality indoor environment. All woods are sustainably sourced, interiors are zero- or low-VOC, lighting is LED; bedding is natural and organic.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful! We stayed here for a week in March and it was everything we hoped for and more. We had 7 people in the house and they were all comfortable. The home owners were extraordinarily accommodating and responsive during the booking process and the home was clean and welcoming when we arrived. Highly recommended and a wonderful place to stay!
