Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My husband is an engineering professor at UT and I am a civil engineer building tunnels across the country. I grew up in Austin and my husband in Chicago. We love this city and our home/location in particular. With our two kids, 10 yrs and 13 yrs, we enjoy all that this city has to offer! We are all enthusiastic soccer players and spend most weekends on the fields of Austin. We are respectful of others space and desire for a vacation experience that

Why the Owner Chose Rosedale, Austin, TX, USA:
Location and the property is wonderful! My husband has said he'd live in a tent just to be where we are - in the middle of EVERYTHING! But this is no tent - we spent days thinking through every detail of the apartment. Built with parents and friends visits in mind, we wanted to ensure that no matter how long or short the visit, that the apartment offered a place to relax, was cozy but not cramped, and allowed it to be a home away from home.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This location allows you to enjoy Austin and all of the activities going on - and there's always something - being in the heart of the City in a quiet, cozy, typically Austin old neighborhood.
