The lighting in this house is perfect all day and night, windows in every room. Perfectly located in the Chestnut Neighborhood, you are in walking distance to a 24hr coffeehouse, several restaurants, a great new bar & a laundry mat. Charming as heck. 5 minute walk to a bus line that runs downtown, north, west and south. 10 minute walk to the train that runs north all the way to Leander and south into downtown. The neighborhood has a up&coming vibe with families and even a bluegrass band!
This house is ALL about the charm of minimalist building style of the early 1920's. Small rooms feed into each other one after another. Windows and doors can be opened for a delightful morning and evening draft.
Because of her age, this house has many quirks! Window units and fans are placed throughout the home in order to help you customize the environment to your desired specifications. NO Central Air Conditioning nor Heat. Though gas heaters can be made available should request it. The house stove is also a gas stove. Lighting instructions are available on site to help walk you through the process if you are not familiar and to help keep everyone safe. Carbon Monoxide and Smoke Detectors are throughout the home as well.
Please help yourself to the pantry, mini-fridge and record player (records are on the shelf under the record player in the dark green salon room). Track lighting and lamps are available and the "on" switch is located near the ground at the electrical plug level.
Please leave your trash for us to take care of! Recycle bins are available in the kitchen (#1-#7 can be recycled) - we will empty these as well.
Your key is pink and is on an obnoxious key chain to help you keep track of it - you are more than welcome to remove the key chain though!
Umbrellas are available and by the front door in case you get caught in one of those Texas thunderstorms.
The house is old and the Summers in Texas hot, so occasionally we see a spider, a water bug or an ant. Feel free to take care of them and thank you for understanding our little piece of dilapidated Heaven.

If I cannot be available to hand you the key and tour you through the space in person, we can decide on a best way to get you the key.

Mr. Fats is our one year old rescue kitty and he is indoor/outdoor meaning NO litter box! His window entrance is in the back kitchen window and he will likely come and go during your stay. He has all his shots, is micro chipped and is generally a very happy go lucky little fellow. Feel free to get some snuggles! He eats a bowl of food morning and night that is near his entrance. If you could help to keep him fed and refill his water, that would be ideal. Thank you for helping care for him!
All the plants have been watered before your arrival and will likely be just fine until we return. :)

Router is located in the dark green room behind the dresser with the record player.
Closet in the light blue room/library is all yours. You'll find extra hangers there. Iron is in the light blue toiletries cabinet in the kitchen. Hair dryer and curling iron are available for your use as well as more towels, toilet paper and some bathroom products. Please help yourself!
I'm a 30 year old small business owner. :) I work from home or on location. I love being outside kayaking, hiking or running when it's pretty and inside snuggled up with a book or a movie when it's not nice outside. I love traveling but have not been out of the United States yet. I am hoping to live in Barcelona one day. I love art history. :)
As far as hosting, I am pretty hands off. The space is prepared - come and enjoy it and enjoy the beautiful city of Austin, TX. If you do need a taxi, a cafe suggestion or help finding the best venue for live music - just ask! I'm here to help! :)
