Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Austin - Dandelion Muse Guest House

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps up to 6

Relax during your stay in Austin at the Dandelion Muse Guest House, a quiet ranch house on a shaded lot in laid-back South Austin. A nice place to getaway but still be close to it all. Enjoy the tall oak, elm, and pecan trees, a large wooden deck and herb garden in back as well as your own peaceful egg-shaped swimming pool.

Quaint, clean, peaceful, and fully furnished - great for good sleep and enjoyment. Hardwood floors throughout, berber in the bedrooms. There is a queen all-latex bed in the main bedroom, truly a treat with all-cotton, high thread count sheets. The other bedrooms have high-quality, thick full sized futons (one with inner coils, the other wool-wrapped), and all guests are provided with high-quality, all-cotton linens. The house is cleaned using environmentally responsible products. Nicely equipped kitchen. Washer/dryer in the house. Chickering upright piano. High-speed wireless internet (6 Mbps) and free Netflix streaming movies with a Roku box.

Suitability:
  • Low Allergen Environment
  • children welcome
  • limited accessibility
  • non smoking only

My friends and I enjoyed staying in this spacious, clean and comfortable home in South Austin. Everything was just as advertised. Our group would gladly stay here again.

Great place

  • 5 out of 5
We arrived for a wedding, several branches of our family staying together in this house. As others have indicated, the decor was not exactly contemporary, but the house was clean and well equipped. The house was spacious and warm. The pool was very clean and perfect for the kids. The location was perfect, in a nice quiet neighborhood very centrally located. We had no complaints at all.

Relaxing with family

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great time visiting family in downtown Austin and chilling at this quiet home. I caught up on my reading while hanging out by the pool. And we all slept well on the comfortable beds. The rate was beyond reasonable, way cheaper than a hotel. (There were 4 of us and a hotel charges by the person.)

The pool was perfect

  • 5 out of 5
The pool was perfect for our energetic five year old. I enjoyed the shade and private back yard. The home itself is warm and inviting and a great place to relax. The kitchen was well equipped and easy to cook in. we even had a picnic by the pool. the home was very clean and inviting. We asked Paul for recommendations on where to take my son and he suggested Loco Motion, which is a kids' inflatable play town, right in the neighborhood! thanks for the tip!

Comfortable enough in decent location

  • 3 out of 5
First off, we had a wedding to attend that happened to fall on the same time that SXSW was happening, so we were charged more than the average rate for this house. If we had paid the regular price possibly my expectations would have been lower. The pictures show a pristine pool and the bedrooms seemed nice enough. Unfortunately, it was cold and rainy so leaves were everywhere and we didn't get to enjoy the backyard. Obviously not the owners fault, but caused us to spend more time indoors while kids napped and such. We didn't plan on spending much time in the house but due to the weather we weren't up for as much exploring. There is only one TV in the house and it is quite small. I mean really small. We debated moving the couch so we could see better. Also there is only one couch (a bit worn) and one chair so not very much seating. Sparse furnishings in the house. In one of the bathrooms the flooring is cement without a rug or a bath mat so it was work to not make a mess when getting out of the shower, esp with kids. The beds were ok, I mean I managed to sleep but they were low to the ground, I believe no box springs, and somewhat hard. It is difficult to sleep when you are more comfortable in your own house and bed than when you are on vacation. I prefer the opposite. If you are looking for a place to crash, shower, and possibly use a pool, this house will work. It's just pretty basic and I think they ought to spend some money and put a decent tv in the place and another couch in the sparse living room.

Great Place and Great People!

  • 5 out of 5
Really, the best part about this place is Bala, the lady that owns and manages it. You get to speak directly with her, instead of through a realtor. She answers all questions quickly and makes the check-in as easy as possible.

We had an issue with our flights, and she had no problem accommodating us.

The house is in an ideal location, only 10 minutes from downtown and the airport. The neighborhood is quiet and relaxing. We stayed for 8 days, no problems at all.

We would recommend it to anyone. In fact, we hope to stay again!

Zip up to downtown in about 10 minutes, UT in 15. Or take the scenic route and drive up South Lamar, South First, or South Congress as you enjoy creative local businesses and classic Austin restaurants and music clubs, such as the Broken Spoke, Saxon Pub, and the SOCO shopping district. South 1st is also a great drive, featuring Jovita's and several trailer gourmet sites. If you would like to commute, the Capitol Metro bus, with a bus stop just a block away, can take you to the ACL Music Festival or a little further into downtown Austin.

Newflower Market, an organics-oriented grocery store, is in short walking distance. Five minutes driving will take you to the Westgate Mall, where you can shop at a world class gourmet grocery called Central Market, as well as an 11-theater cinema, local favorite Amy's Ice Cream and some nice restaurants, including Hyde Park Bar and Grill, Madam Mam's Thai Cuisine, and Asian-oriented Buffet Palace.

Just 20 minutes to the Airport or Hill Country.
