About Denise and Dorene
Austin born sisters, Dorene and Denise have lived in Austin their entire lives. Our family and friends live here and we can not imagine living anywhere else! Austin is one of the hottest spots to visit in the nation. The combination of nature, live bands, and great food (Tex-Mex, barbeque, eclectic)...we just love Austin! We have owned and managed properties for 19 years and enjoy giving people a comfortable beautiful place to live and stay.
Denise and Dorene purchased this House in 2002
Why Denise and Dorene chose Dawson
This property was handed down to us from our father. He had the foresight to buy the property in the 1960's and it is very special to us. Our entire family grew up and attended school in this area and many friends remain. We have loved seeing how this area has changed and grown over the years and we can quickly tell you where something 'used to be'. We have remodeled the entire house and turned it into a South Austin gem. It is in the perfect location since it is conveniently located to downtown, restaurants, entertainment, nature walks, and shopping. Yet, you can still relax and get away from it all by sitting on the back deck with your favorite beverage.
What makes this House unique
The feeling in the house is one of being in a safe place and calmness. From the kitchen, bathroom and back deck you catch glimpses of the high rises of downtown. There is native landscaping and a large fenced in backyard with a three tiered awesome deck. There is also a little 'Hippie Room' just inside the carport. Located in a good location with speedy access to other areas in Austin via highways or major roads.

Such a fun little house! I love that Torchy's Tacos is right in front! The backyard has a great lounging area that is so fun with the perfect Austin vibe. We locked ourselves out of the house and the owner was so nice and let us in within 10 minutes. We loved our stay. Thank you so much!
Loved the house!! Perfect Memorial Day weekend
Our dogs loved having a home to stay in instead of busy, cramped hotel room. Location is awesome too!
Fantastic location! Very clean and well equipped! Owners were super responsive and friendly!!

Great Character & Location
Centrally located property with a lot of character. The backyard patio is great for having a coffee and a breakfast taco (Torchy's is next door) and is also ideal for folks traveling with pets.
We were happy to have you and your pets. Hope to see ya next time.
Warm and cozy!
Very clean. Funky decor. Loved the heaters as it was really cold when we visited. Had everything we needed- thank you! Bed was very comfortable.

Comfy and cozy.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your comfy home. Everything was perfect - just what we needed for our much needed get away! The house was clean, the beds were comfortable and the decor was funky and fun. Our fur baby, Maddie, especially enjoyed the backyard with the neighboring cats, dogs and squirrels. Thank you for sharing your home. Loved it!
Thanks for your charming review. Hope to have y'all in our home again.
