Relax and enjoy the privacy of this Brentwood retreat close to downtown. Take advantage of the numerous outdoor spaces-- dine on the back patio, enjoy cocktails around the outdoor fireplace or watch the stars from the third floor roof deck! It's a spacious 2000 sqft home in Brentwood with an open floor plan, designer finishes, lots of natural light & plentiful outdoor space. 5 minutes from UT and 10-15 from downtown Austin. Close to great restaurants, grocery stores, shops and parks.
This home was made for entertaining! On the ground floor there is an open floor plan that expands between the living room, kitchen & dining room. The kitchen is a chef's dream; it's with a well equipped with cookware, modern appliances & large counter tops. The dining room seats 8 at the table and another 5 people can dine up on the bar.
Connect to the wifi Network and take advantage of the Sonos Soundsystem with speakers throughout the home you can control from your smartphone. (directions are included to download the app) The house has basic cable and you can watch Netflix & HBO GO on the Apple TV. I also have a wii if you like video games :)
Doors open directly from the living area to the outdoor terrace with a comfy outdoor dining table that seats 6. The spacious backyard also features a charcoal grill and a beautiful gas outdoor fireplace. Dogs are welcome and will enjoy the backyard!
Upstairs you will find two bedrooms, two full baths and an alcove with a twin bed. All of the bedrooms have white, hotel quality linens and the bathrooms have all white towels. The Master bedroom has private balcony, king sized bed & private master bath. Second bedroom is also a master style suite with a queen sized bed and large ensuite bathroom. There is a twin bed in a nook upstairs, but there is no door on this space. The downstairs couch is also extremely comfy and comes with a double pull out bed. I have plenty of linens and fluffy towels to make your stay comfortable.
The neighborhood has tons of fabulous restaurants, coffee shops, parks & grocery stores. My favorite spots in the hood include Thunderbird coffee, Taco Deli, Apothecary, Uchiko, Kome, East Side Pies (delivery), Fonda San Miguel, Noble Sandwich Co and many more! Hyde Park is around the corner with other great spots like Antoinelli's cheese shop and the Daily Juice. Central Market is my favorite grocery store, but there is also an HEB & Walgreens nearby. Brentwood Park is a short walk away and has a large playground & plenty of room to roam around.
I hope you'll enjoy my home as much as I do. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions!
You'll have access to the entire house, yard and decks. The two owners closets and the garage are off limits, but otherwise you will have access to everything else!
Interaction with guests
Check in and checkout times can be flexible, I'm happy to try and accommodate your requests. Hopefully I'll be available to welcome you when you arrive, but the house is equipped with a key pad if you are checking in/ out at unusual hours. I will leave written notes with most of the info you need- wifi codes, nearby amenities, emergency contacts and even some restaurant recommendations around town.
Other things to note
My house is family friendly- I can provide a pack n play if you are traveling with a little one! If there is anything else you need, please ask! I have 5 nieces and nephews in town and can probably borrow most anything you would require.
I hope that you'll treat my home with respect and leave it as you found it. My yard is very private so moderate noise won't bother anyone, but please don't disturb the neighbors. Parties are not permitted. Please be careful to lock all of the patio doors when you leave. Mature pets are allowed that won't damage the house. Please don't smoke inside the house, but you will find ash trays outside.
My name is Laura, I'm a native Austinite and a world traveler. I've visited more than 40 countries and have lived in NYC, LA and London. I moved back to Austin last year and fell back in love with my city. I work for a travel company and travel frequently, but call Austin home in between trips. I'd love for you to enjoy my home and discover Austin while I'm off exploring another part of the world. I've got tons of Austin recommendations to help you experience the city like a local. Please treat my home with respect and enjoy it!
