About Katherine

Greetings Currents and Future Guests! I am a long time Austin resident and love to share the fun and beauty of Austin with others through my vacation home. I have hosted guests from England, Belgium, Germany, Mexico, as well as families living right here in Austin.

Come enjoy a weekend or a month stay. The home is especially popular with guests in town for an Austin-style wedding, working professionals on short-term work assignments, and weekend stays for football games, film and music festivals. I will be happy to provide you with recommendations for well-known Austin destinations as well as hidden favorites with Austin residents!

Katherine purchased this house in 1999

Why Katherine chose Austin

I bought this house because of the great floorplan for entertaining, the neighborhood amenities, the safety and quality of the neighborhood, and the great location relative to things to do in Austin.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was an absolutely great place to spend the week leading up to our son's wedding -- lots to do, comfortable rooms, great kitchen.

One home, many experiences.

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with our family. The adults had plenty of bedrooms for naps after a full day in the sun. The family room rug was a favorite place for the children to gather with their toys while other circled the kitchen table for games of cards. The trails provided a relaxing hike through cool breezy trees. Your home was a perfect gathering place for our son's UT graduation.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was FANTASTIC!!! Thank you again so much - my family felt so comfortable and we enjoyed being together instead of strewn about in various hotel rooms! We spoke about renting it in the future when everyone comes to Austin again!

The house was beautiful and had more than we needed. We really, really enjoyed our stay!

Great house for multiple families!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for our daughter's wedding. We were coming from Dallas and had out of town family coming from 3 different states. This house was so comfortable, spacious and lovely. We were able to spend great times together with family as well as putting the last touches on a wonderful wedding. Thank you for making this available to us.

Loved the location

  • 4 of 5
Too bad Austin is going through a bad drought. The home was spacious, comfortable, and in what seemed like a very safe neighborhood. This two level home has 5 bedrooms on the top level, and the living room, kitchen on the main level. The formal dining room is nice, but we never used it. We also couldn't BBQ, but besides that the owner was awesome to work with and the home was clean and quiet.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. The drought and county ban on grilling won't last long. Come back soon for the barbeque!

A Peaceful Haven - Conveniently Situated

  • 5 of 5
Visiting Austin for a wedding, this house was wonderful for all 10 adults staying, spacious, comfortable and cleverly designed. Beautifully situated in a "squiggly" tree lined cul-de-sac amongst other lovely houses in an excellent area. The decked area was so peaceful, we all enjoyed watching the birds in the bird bath and the squirrels chasing around the garden. Just the place for a family BBQ with peace, quiet and privacy.The pool was close by and very, very quiet when we were there - just ideal.
