Overview

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

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps up to 8

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:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • Low Allergen Environment
  • children welcome
  • limited accessibility
  • non smoking only

Dandelion House

  • 3 of 5

Nice property. House was pretty clean but needs some updates and living room furniture. Had to clean around window sills and appliances in kitchen. Stocked kitchen for spices, dishes etc. Perfect place for family before a wedding. Plenty of room and nice beds, clean bathrooms.

Space was as shown on site. It rained so we did not use the pool. The pool looked clean and nice but the landscaping really needs some work. Owner was exceptionally nice and allowed us back in when we forgot something in the closet.

a great house.

  • 5 of 5

The house was very close to where we wanted to be. It was clean, convenient, and well appointed. There was nothing we needed that wasn't there.

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 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 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.)

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.
