This is a non-smoking property. It is absolutely prohibited indoors and in the outdoor spaces as well. We charge you for leaving butts on the property or for lingering odors inside.
We are located near campus, so you often can hear music nearby, though we've never had any complaints about neighborhood noise being heard inside the house. The lot is large and quiet, even though we're right in the middle of town.

We were born and raised here in Austin and have grown and changed right along with this funky town. We have owned rental property in Austin for 30+ years. We used to have long-term rentals and switched to short-term in 2007 when there were only 60 other vacation rentals in town. We've loved it so much that we have branched out into other states as well. We tend to leave you alone during your stay, but we're close by if you need anything!
