Description from owner

This is a cute, comfortable 2/1 guest house with 800 sq. ft. located on a private corner of the owner's second home property. House is on the second level providing park-like views and seclusion for guests. Windows look out on the pool or into wooded area behind house, not into neighboring houses. The master bedroom has a king size bed & overlooks the large swimming pool & heated spa. Second bedroom has one full/double bed, one twin bed, and a TV with satellite. Kitchen is fully equipped and high speed gigabit wireless Internet is available - even by the pool! Plenty of off-street parking and convenient to shopping, music venues, and most major tourist attractions. House is in a unique neighborhood with lots of trees and privacy and a convenient location within an active community. It is located just a few blocks from the University of Texas campus. Pets and kids over age 5 are welcome! Smoking is not allowed anywhere on the property.

Pool, Spa, Deck & Parking Area: The private pool is open year around and is available only to our guests. The spa is heated, but the pool is not. Pool depth is up to 12 feet, so children and pets must be supervised during use. In addition, city ordinance requires that the gate to the pool area be closed when it is not being used. There is no lifeguard on duty, so you are responsible for making sure everyone in your party, as well as any other guests you have at the house, is behaving in the pool area. We provide a separate set of towels for use at the pool. There is a large wood deck on one side of the pool with seating and lounge chairs. There is also a concrete deck with tables with large patio umbrellas and more chairs. There is a gas grill on the deck that is available for all guests. In addition, there is a large parking area that can accommodate up to a dozen cars. There are several parking spaces under the house in a carport area. This area is lighted and can also serve as an entertainment space.

Occupancy & Party Policy: Overnight occupancy is limited to six (6) individuals. See photos and descriptions for bed arrangements. * * * We are Not a party facility. There are plenty of lovely places in Austin to rent if you are interested in having a party and we have provided a list of some of them on our site. Due to safety concerns, cleaning costs, and other issues, parties of more than 12 people are not allowed without written consent from management. Unapproved parties on the property will result in the immediate forfeiture of your deposit and possible eviction, depending on the severity of the infraction. Please email or call with further questions.

Property Rules: You must agree to the property rules in the rental agreement. Failure to follow the rules can result in loss of deposit or possible eviction, depending on the severity of the infraction. Here are the bullet points:

* You must be at least 25 years old to rent the property.

* WE DO NOT RENT TO SMOKERS or allow smoking anywhere on the property! This is strictly enforced. There is a $1000 charge for smoking on the property or leaving odors from smoking in the house.

* Kids over five years old and pets are allowed as long as they are declared. You must pick up after both and you must make sure neither pets nor kids are left unattended in the pool area. We provide poop bags for the pets and some limited cleaning supplies for the kids.

* No unapproved parties on the property without consent from management. I know the pool is tempting, but we are NOT a party facility.

* We are a green property, therefore, we expect you to do your part by recycling whatever you can and putting the rest in the trash. We provide recycling buckets and a compost for you.
