You'll be so close to so much that's great about Austin: 10 minutes to downtown, the University of Texas and all the hip East/Central Austin attractions, 5 minutes to the Mueller development with its many shops and restaurants, farmers market, and the Thinkery, the coolest children’s museum anywhere.

Our comfortable and inviting home features lovely original hardwood floors throughout, lots of natural light, central air and heat, vintage and modern furnishings, and a contemporary modern kitchen and bathroom with high-end fixtures.

The living space has an open floor plan that is perfect for kicking back and relaxing with friends or family. Music-inspired artwork evokes the Austin experience. There’s even a turntable and a supply of vintage vinyl for your listening enjoyment!

The large dining table seats 6 to 8 and has a nice view into the backyard area. The bar area off of the kitchen is a favorite space to hang out; it seats 3 to 4 and connects to the outside patio via sliding glass doors. The shaded, private patio features a picnic table, 4 outdoor chairs, 5-burner gas grill, fire pit, and globe lights to set the perfect evening mood.

The back yard is fully fenced, private and spacious for little ones and/or pets to roam. The property features 3 pecan trees. If you’re staying with us between November and January, feel free to gather and crack pecans – they are delicious!

Both the living room and master bedroom feature flat screen TVs with Apple TV with Netflix. Our home is equipped with wifi for your web surfing and business needs.

The master bedroom features a deluxe king bed, while the other two bedrooms feature deluxe queen beds. All beds have memory foam mattress toppers for an extra comfy night's sleep. All bedrooms have ceiling fans and spacious closets.

The fully-equipped kitchen features modern design and fixtures, Caesarstone quartz countertops, LG stainless appliances, and all the cookware and supplies you need to prepare a gourmet meal. The vintage-inspired modern bathroom features custom tile with retro flowers and carrera marble accents.

Our home is stocked with all the creature comforts including soaps, shampoo/conditioner, extra towels and linens, extra pillows, coffee maker, teapot, toaster, cookware and utensils, board games, books, kitchen and bath paper products, pantry staples, child’s highchair, child’s pack n’ play with sheets, changing table with pad, child’s plasticware/sippy cups.
