Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: We currently live in Austin, Texas on the same property as the Guest House. However, we spend lots of time at our second home in Breckenridge, Colorado and although we both work full-time, are avid travelers and love everything outdoors - including cycling, hiking, gardening, and scuba diving. Our last major trip was to the Galapagos Islands where we spent a week on an Aggressor ship diving with hammerhead sharks. It was an amazing experience! Over the years, we have been all over the world, and ALWAYS stay in vacation rental properties. We have taken everything we have learned from these stays, good and bad, to offer a place to guests that we believe far surpasses the usual vacation rental property. We want all of our guests to have a truly memorable experience and come back and stay with us.
Why the Owner Chose West Oak Hill, Austin, TX, USA:
The Guest House was an add-on to our "ranch style" home which we've lived in since 2000. It was originally built as a separate unit for friends and family to visit, so we went all out to make it a very special place. We love the location of our property as it's close to everything - the hill country, downtown Austin, Lake Travis - but it is extremely private and feels "away from it all." It's a great area for walking, cycling, or just hanging out by the pool on a warm day. Having acreage has allowed us to plant organic raised gardens, where we grow all kinds of veggies, fruit and olive trees, and even grapes. We hope you'll find the property as special as we do!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
- Open floor plan with lots of natural light - Large, Texas stone fireplace - Tiled and wood floors throughout - Stylishly decorated with nice, comfortable furniture - Original artwork throughout - One car garage with new washer/dryer - Private back deck with gas grill - Fully fenced yard with in pool and year round hot tub - Sleep number bed in master bedroom - Ceiling fans throughout - Plenty of closet space - Fully fenced three acres - Organic gardens with fresh herbs and produce - Home is stocked with Starbucks coffee, laundry detergent, all bathroom items (soap, shampoo, etc.) . . . . and so much more. We strive to make all of our guests feel at home and make their stays memorable!
