Property description

Space

This house was designed for maximum entertaining and enjoyment. Situated minutes from everything Austin, my home was decorated by a local austin designer with flexibility and ease in mind.

With 6 well-appointed bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms, this house is built and equipped for groups.
A stone's throw from downtown, this place has easy access to everything you want to do (shopping, music festivals, conferences; the list goes on and on). This is not just a big empty box... with 6 bedrooms that in 3000 spacious square feet.
The open plan living area boasts 3 full size sofas (two are queen sleepers), 50' TV with AT&T Uverse full cable and high speed 1 GB wireless internet, a full wetbar with mini fridge and service window to the back porch.
The truth is that everyone congregates in the kitchen, which is no problem given the massive size of the 500 square foot kitchen complete with top of the line appliances and a kitchen island that goes on for miles and miles. Seating is found everywhere, and extra seating is tucked in every niche, so a group, no matter how big it becomes through a visit, is always easy to accommodate. An intercom system connects every room, and more importantly... turns the entire house into a party when you connect your phone or ipod to the central unit. Wetbar has its own dedicated corner of the living space, with a mini fridge, sink, power and enough space for the best margarita recipe showdown.

Guest Access
Guests have access to the entire house, excluding the garage and storage unit in the back yard. These are reserved for personal effects during visits and allow us to give free reign over the house without worry about opening drawers or cabinets that hold personal items like clothing or toothbrushes... So nothing is off limits!

Interaction with Guests
We love having guests, but as avid fans and travelers on vrbo & homeaway, we respect the privacy of guests, yet are always just a phone call or txt away if you need anything at all.

Very few rules apply here. I insist you enjoy yourself, but there are a few amenities and considerations...

No smoking and no illegal drugs inside the house, there are two huge porches, and back-and front yards with seating. If smoke odor is in the house, or any illegal substances, the full security deposit will be used to professionally clean the airducts in the house or legally dispose of substances.

The house is huge (3000 square feet), and controlled by a single thermostat by the master bedroom door. While you should be comfortable, changing the temperature up and down in short cycles can not only damage the unit, they aren't very effective for the house. Please treat the temperature controls like your own!

High-speed Internet is always on and always connected via the network. The password is on the information card in the entry.

Bathrooms have their own supplies of linens, and each bed is freshly changed before new guests. An air mattress is available for use at any time for flexibility, but advance notice helps me ensure it can be brought out from storage.

This is a green home, and recycling bins are located in the house and at the curb (all plastics, paper, cans, and glass go in the same bin).

BATHROOMS:

There is soaps and towels for everyone. At checkout, please toss all dirty towels in the showers and tubs so housekeeping knows what to pick up and launder.

Room specific details:
KITCHEN: Garbage disposal switch is located to the right of the sink. For safety, a fire extinguisher is also located in the kitchen. The cooktop and microwave both have vents, so you can rest assured that anything you cook (or burn) won't fill the house with smells and smoke.

BATHROOMS: There are four full bathrooms in the house. One under the stairs, and another in the master for downstairs, and upstairs has a hallway bathroom and Jack and Jill between two rooms at the front of the house.

GARAGE AND STORAGE SHED: These spaces are locked from guests. They provide a place to store personal items so you can rest assured that everything else in the house (beverages, snacks, linens, etc.) are all fair game for use.

There are other great features and amenities to enjoy around the house, but we have to leave little surprises here and there so enjoy your discoveries!

Just South of Downtown, this neighborhood is awesome, with a TexMex restaurant just around the corner, funky South 1st Street restaurant row in just 2 miles, and major highway access to everything else... you can't go wrong! And this super-accessible house is in a quiet mid-century neighborhood, which means no noisy traffic or screaming barhoppers will ever disturb a good night's rest or get-together on the front; or back porches.
