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

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.

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.

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!
