I love Austin! I am a Photographer and Media Producer who dabbles in the Music Industry. Austin supports Independent Businesses and I enjoy working in this format.

Deborah Peacock purchased this house in 1997

I have owned my home since 1997.. It has been a bit of an art project for me. It is eclectic and Austintacious! It is located in one of the most desirable downtown neighborhoods in Austin.

You will feel like an Austinite while staying at my house. It is fully equipped and includes a lot of art and music. This is not just any house ... it is quite unique and fun.

Great location, beautiful home

We stayed in this beautiful house for a long weekend and had a great time. There were 3 adults and 3 kids and we had plenty of room. The master suite was particularly private and quiet and the big tub and big shower were a real treat. The owner is an artist and art collector and we had great fun looking at all the interesting things she has on display. However the art did not get in the way of it being a very functional place to stay for a sizeable family.

The location was convenient to absolutely everything we wanted to do, just minutes from highways and restuarants, but still nestled in a quiet and friendly neighborhood and with a really pretty yard (the pictures don't do it justice!). This is a gem of a 1920's home with wonderful architectural detail and significant interior and exterior renovations.

Everything was clean and well-maintained and the owner was very attentive and provided tourist information, current events and maps for our use.

Thanks for a great time!

We booked this house for a group of 8 for the Valentine's weekend and loved it! It was perfect for a group of 8, and Deborah was so accommodating and helpful with everything. The rooms are fantastic, and the house has a great location; we could not have been in a better spot for getting to everywhere easily and quickly. Would not hesitate to stay here again, thanks so much for letting us borrow your house!
