Property description

Beautiful 1932 art-deco home, 1420 sq ft, two bedrooms with double/queen beds (third is my home-office, but decent floor space and I could get bedding of some sort put in there if you want), one [pretty spectacular] bathroom, spacious kitchen, living room, and dining room, wood floors throughout. Central A/C and heat, whole-house attic fan (leave windows open). Nice backyard, quiet street **Great neighborhood that's close to everything** from downtown (22 blocks straight down funky South Congress Ave.) to the airport (15 min) and Formula 1 track (Circuit of the Americas). Numerous famous restaurants and 24-hr places in walking distance -- for SXSW or ACL **could not be sweeter**, I know from experience living here since 1990! It could comfortably take 4 people, more if you can sleep on mats, couch, cot, etc. I'm an ornithologist, work in Amazonian Brazil a lot, house is full of books and stuff related to that, please just leave it where it sits, thanks! Hablo español y falo português ;-)

Notes:

I require a $1000 deposit in addition to the standard policy.

If all is well at the house after the rental is over, and it is left reasonably clean, I will immediately return your entire deposit, with great thanks!

Alex Pasha, I will not be home to inspect the house until early December. If everything is ok at that time (it will not be rented again and no one will be staying in the house), I will quickly refund your $1000 deposit, thank you!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: I'm an ornithologist, travel a lot, have put my home on Home Away to try to help earn some money to offset Austin's ridiculously high annual property taxes. I don't use Facebook, in case you're wondering (seems a lot of people do).

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location, location, location. And super-comfy, amazingly quiet little house, makes you feel good as soon as you walk in.
