About Cathleen M McNelis

We are California Transplants who moved to Austin 12 years ago. We picked the neighborhood of Rosedale due to it's walkability to coffee shops, restaurants, parks and markets. The style of this home is built around the homes we admire in Newport Beach California, just without the ocean! Every summer we rent a beach house in Newport Beach to get away from the Texas heat and ride the waves in the Pacific Ocean while visiting family and friends.

Cathleen M McNelis purchased this house in 2014

Why Cathleen M McNelis chose Rosedale

Someone once told me our house is perfect for large get together's and parties. Along with a large open floor plan , there is plenty of seating throughout the house and many areas of the house like the mud room or attic to escape to.

Along with the third floor deck with a view of the capital and UT tower (even better views in the fall when the leaves are gone!) , there is a large deck off the master bedroom and a large porch off the back with a comfy porch swing.

We also have a studio garage apartment on the property which sleeps an additonal 4 guests.

What makes this house unique

Third Floor Deck with views of the Capital and UT Tower. Views are fantastic in the fall when the leaves have fallen off all the neighborhood trees. 2 Decks, porch with porch swing. Custom kitchen complete with commercial fridge and stove. Giant glass windows throughout making the property extremely bright and open. Local art throughout the home.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this home. Cathleen is an easy to reach host if you need her. Quiet neighborhood that is close to the Triangle and Central Market. Also, an easy walk to a park with a great playground. This home worked well for our family with children (ages 6,3 and I) but it would be good for adults.

Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful house with us - we loved staying there! The house was spotless and the towels were fluffy - it was like staying in a luxury hotel! Great open kitchen and dining area - and the back porch swing is divine! Highly recommended!

Beautiful property! Looks even better than pics!

  • 5 of 5

Could not have been a better experience! Owners were more than gracious. We were in Austin to celebrate our son's graduation from UT. We were hosting family and friends for a lunch celebration. The owners met us to see the property prior to our stay and even brought in extra beds so we could have additional family members stay for the weekend. They also shared platters, bowls, tubs for drinks, etc. The home was perfect for a large family gathering. It was clean, and well maintained. All of our guests were very complimentary of the home. Absolutely recommend this property!

Wonderful house. Super comfortable for friends and family.

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for Thanksgiving family celebration and it was perfect. The owners are fantastic to work with and the house was a perfect spot for us to gather. The house has an open floor plan which is perfect for large gatherings. It's in walking distance to coffee, food and parks --perfect location. The house was very clean and uncluttered. I would highly recommend this property.
