I moved to Austin in 1994 and immediately fell in love with this town. I had no doubt that this is where I would settle down so I purchased this house when I graduated from UT. I have since then outgrown the size of this house, with a family of 4, but never for a moment wanted to part with it. So I decided to rent it to Austin's finest visitors. I love interacting with travelers, I'm very easy going and try to accommodate each individual and their needs.
Homes that were built in the 1920's are hard to come by. This property was in GREAT shape and just a few cosmetic touch ups restored its beauty and preserved its essence. It is quite an experience to stay in this house, the feeling is so cozy, there are just so few of these houses left.
This house has all the modern amenities necessary for comfort. Located on a quiet block, near a park and at the same time just walking distance to nearby restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores and more. Centrally located, a short bike ride or super fast car ride to downtown. The house is so cozy and warm, great to just lounge around and relax. Has a great front porch, to check out the neighborhood, and a great back yard for grilling and hanging out.
