Welcome to our home! We're a young professional couple with more space than we need. 15 mins from downtown and 5 mins from the Galleria mall with dining and entertainment in between. Take a quick stroll to Georgetown Lake park or relax in the backyard in front of the fire pit.
Feel free to do laundry and use shared areas of the home. We're happy to give recommendations, and be social or leave you alone - your choice!
Guests can access the front room, private bedroom (up the stairs, last door on the left), and private bathroom (up the stairs, immediately to the right) at any time. Once we have introduced you to the dogs, you are welcome to enter spaces that they share (living room, kitchen, garage with laundry facilities, and backyard) whether we are home or not. The only off limit places are our bedroom and office.
Interaction with guests
I will be available by text or phone call for questions. We generally keep to ourselves but are happy to be social if that's what you prefer. We both work full time and are in grad school. Most weekday evenings we will be doing homework or watching TV in the living room. You can join us or avoid us, it's up to you.
Other things to note
Water and Soaps:
You can enjoy fresh, clean water straight from the tap - we don't drink bottled water because the tap tastes better! Our Rainsoft water softener and filter makes the water in our home luxurious and moisturizing. We pair it with natural soaps that are gentle on your skin. Just keep in mind, we are not a hotel - so soap won't be packaged or wasted. You are free to use your own cleansing products if you prefer.
If you are allergic to dogs or fearful of them, our home may not be right for you. We have two, large, lovable short-haired dogs - Achilles and Einstein. They will try to smother you with kisses and have no concept of personal space. In order to make your stay a smooth experience, you can self-check-in while we are absent, but please wait to use the shared spaces until we have had a chance to introduce you to the dogs. When are are absent, the dogs will have free access to half of the house and the yard. Achilles may bark for a minute when you enter the home, but will quiet down shortly. If you are comfortable with them, you are free to hang out in the shared spaces in our absence - the dogs will appreciate any extra love they can receive. I do suggest that you close the living room door when you enter and exit so that they don't follow you throughout the house.
Let us know how much you plan on using the kitchen during your stay. We can make space in the fridge if you need it. If you like to cook - feel free! Just wash your dishes/put them in the dishwasher. We have a standard coffee maker and a french press, and don't mind sharing a few cups off coffee with you...but if you're as addicted as we are, you'll need your own coffee beans :)
If you dirty any dishes, please put them in the dishwasher. Please inform us if you'd like to adjust the thermostat. The washing machine and dryer are available for your use.
