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!
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.
