Cozy home about 7 minutes into the city!
This 1800 sqft home is centrally located on the east side of Austin. 7 mins to downtown, 15 mins to UT campus, and 20 mins to the airport, it is just close enough to all the action yet far enough removed to have a nice relaxing dinner on the patio and a good nights sleep on a quiet street in a gated neighborhood.
The house has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 half bath, 2 living rooms, washer and dryer, cable, Internet, outdoor and indoor dining areas. Guests have their own private rooms and bath but since I do live on the property, everything else is shared space. However, I'm a full-time student and work full-time so am rarely home but can be if you need me! The main guest room has been furnished with French provincial furniture and an excellent mattress, however should you need more space I have a couch that folds out into a full-size bed (when my brother comes to visit he actually prefers it) and a full size futon should there be more than 4 of you. I also have a leather couch and love seat in the upstairs living room and 2 couches in the downstairs living room should you really need the space.
A fan of fine dining (and eating!), dinnerware was made in Italy, goblets are crystal, and coasters hand-sewn from Haiti. Utensils are from the world famous Austrian chef, Wolfgang Puck and guests are more than welcome to utilize the kitchen.
The living room upstairs has been transformed into an art gallery and showcases paintings I have done, gifts from other artists, and paintings I've picked up along my travels. Most of my own art are for sale and guests are encouraged to inquire to take a piece of Austin with them when they leave!
Should guests need anything washed or ironed while they are here, I do have a laundry service. There is a laundry bag placed in each room and I'll collect them whenever you're ready. I have a clothesline outside if you prefer line-drying and can iron anything you need. If you need any extra amenities like a hair dryer or straightener or something of the sort please don't hesitate to ask!
The only rules I have are to keep the space as clean as you found it! I do not wear shoes in the house as I'm super clean and everything has been completely renovated so I'd like to keep it new and fresh as long as possible. There is a bench at the front door that you can lift up the seat and place your shoes in. This is the reason for the security deposit should anything become damaged or dirty to the point of hiring a maid service. Pets are allowed but only in the backyard. It is fenced and locked. I can give you a key to the back gate if you you'd like to take him/her out for a walk. Smoking is allowed, but again only outside. The house itself is a non-smoking, pet-free home.
I am open to long-term stays. Please message me for details! I have 2 guest bedrooms so the monthly price applies to the one bedroom fitting one person long term. You can rent out both bedrooms for $800/month each room, fully furnished, all bills paid with the laundry service. If for some reason there are 2 of you wanting to stay in one room, the price would still apply for renting out both rooms. Where you want to sleep is up to you!
If you have any other questions regarding Austin in general, I've lived here almost a decade and can give great tips on restaurants, bars, lounges, outdoor activities, etc dependent on the vibe you're going for. Austin is such a great city and I love it so much and only hope to give you the best experience so that you love it as much as I do! Look forward to meeting you!
