Stay in a One of a Kind Dome - Ton of Privacy - Only 10 Min Drive to Downtown!
About Christine McCall
My husband built our Geodesic Dome in 1971 when West Lake Hills was beginning to develop. West Lake Hills is a small city (4.5 square miles) within the city of Austin. We opened up the view to the spectacular sight of downtown Austin and beyond. I'm a retiring registered dental hygienist and after a 43 year career, I became very interested in doing Short Term Rentals and open my Dome to our community, I'm very excited about the concept of community. Being part of your community at home as well as touching guests from all over the world is what makes the world go around.I love being part of it all. I've had so much fun getting to know people from everywhere. I've lived in the Dome for 25 years....I LOVE living here and being able to share it now with you, my guests. There have been so many happy memories here. Carrying all these good times forward with family and friends is my mission now. I'm in touch with our community and supporting local businesses. I'm excited sharing my dome with you on a short term basis and would consider long term renters as well. I love being retired and now I'm having so much fun hosting! Even more, I love knowing ALL the guests who've stayed here, will always remember the totally awesome Geodesic Dome they stayed in Austin, Texas!

This a very unique structure...With a 23 ft ceiling, the structure is like nothing you've ever seen. There are 99 triangles in an original Geodesic Dome. The view is breathtaking. The front of this property with 2 story wall of windows which face the east. The windows are made of rectangular and triangle shaped windows. The living room is full of indirect morning sun and Downtown View of Austin. The deck is full of beautiful seasonal flowers and the yard and hillside full of beautiful Texas native plants such as Texas Purple Sage bushes, and blooming yellow, orange and luscious purple and yellow lantana and Mexican Bird of Paradise and Pride of Barbado.

This unique property is like nothing you've ever experienced. I'm in love with it because of the total privacy. The deck is so enjoyable in the mornings with a cup of tea or coffee, a yoga mat or a good book. At night with the yard lights on and a view of the city lights sitting in comfortable deck furniture with a cold beer or glass of wine is a beautiful way to end your day at my "Dome Sweet Dome".

Would recommend if you are looking for something secluded and unique within 10 minutes of downtown Austin. Looks just like the listing except the house is even more impressive on the inside because the ceilings are so high and the views are expansive. Sean was a great host, very attentive and easy to communicate with. Strongly recommend.
It was a fun clean home. Great view of Austin. Quiet.
It was a great location for what we were there for. Incredible view. Unique house.
Thank you all for your stay last weekend. It was a pleasure hosting you. I hope you’ll consider staying again next time you’re back in Austin. Have fun!
Geodome in West Austin hill country
This was a little bit of wilderness in the hills above Austin. Deer would practically come up to you and the beautiful deck had a gorgeous view of Austin. The home was eclectic with a spacious open design and well stocked kitchen. It even came with a delicious quiche! The homeowner was gracious and welcoming. Easy 10 minute drive th nice restautants and 15 minute drive into Austin.
Great place to feel like you are away from it all but easy to get to it all when you want to!
Recommend as a romantic get away!
Had a excellent experience renting one bedroom.
Beautiful view. Quiet. Accessible. As a paid lobbyist for 4 months, I was able to rend a bedroom and have complete access to other parts of the home. It was perfect for my hectic schedule and needing to unwind when I arrived home. Great customer service. Accurate listing of the location. Would stay many times more.
