Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Hello. We greatly prefer simultaneous exchanges of at least a week in the USA and at 1+ months internationally. We are open to consider any destination.

Comparable VRBOs on our street rent for $750 to $1700 per night. We are not particular about ensuring cost equality with folks - just saying this is a really good location.

- Bedroom #1 is a Master bedroom with 1 King cool Tempurpedic adjustable bed, TV and bidet commode
- Bedroom #2 is office/bedroom with a "queen plus/super queen" extra wide well made and comfortable pull out couch/bed
- Bedroom #3 is an office only
- Up to 2 extra twin beds can be put in the loft area
- Thus we can accommodate up to 6 people - 2 couples (4 people) plus 2 individuals on twin beds

Inside is contemporary furniture, big 75" TV, well-stocked kitchen, and lots of games. Bar too... help yourself, but kindly replace if you finish a bottle.

Privately fenced back yard includes 2 shaded patios, hot tub, 2 relaxing fountains, 1 Weber gas grill & 1 Weber charcoal grill.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

This is a small urban neighborhood surrounded by commercial property in a mostly gentrified, historically Hispanic area. All types of people are here - mostly older long-term residents and all ages of newer residents. A car is offered subject to negotiation but is not a requirement. We bike and walk 95% of the time. The area has changed enormously in the six years we've been here.

- 1.5 miles from downtown and 10 minutes from the airport
- Close to everything cool in trendy, gentrified East Austin's Holly Neighborhood
- Very near the east end of iconic 6th Street, a nightlife district that goes for 3.5 miles
- Rainey Street and South Congress nightlife districts are also quite close
- Area is flat and great for biking/walking
- Rentable scooters and bicycles all around

- Several coffee places, four craft brewers, dozens of bars & restaurants many with bands - all very close. The HEB supermarket is a 2 minute walk. GREAT BYOB jazz club called Monks is a 4 minute walk. Dominoes pizza across the street. UPS, Post Office, Austin Regional Clinic and 6 bus stops are a close walk. There are 2 train stations within walking distance.
- Outstanding biking/walking paths are very close - Town Lake, including canoe/standup paddle 0.7 miles away. Southern Walnut Creek and Boggy Creek bike/walk paths also quite close. University of Texas is not far and you can easily bike/Uber to games. Hike the awesome Greenbelt. Check out the amazing Barton Springs Pool. Do a Duckboat or Segway tour. Want to meet locals? The Thursday community bike ride meets close by and is a great way to meet interesting locals.
