Our touchscreen deadbolt on our front door allows guests to access our home without a key. We provide our guests a unique 4 digit code, making it easy for our guests to check in and check out.

We provide all of the little things that are often left behind when hurriedly packing for a trip (toiletries), and strive to leave our guests with little treats to jump-start your busy days (Fresh fruit, bagels, coffee). There is also a mini-fridge upstairs dedicated to our guests for their convenience. We strive to be your home away from home!

Our house was built in 2012 with green building standards in mind. As a result, it is extremely energy efficient. We have separate heating/cooling systems for the upstairs and downstairs with Nest thermostats allowing for personalized control. We also have two tankless water heaters, which can provide an unlimited amount of hot water, even if everyone is showering at the same time.

Guest access

Guests will be able to access all parts of our home with the exception of our garage, master bedroom and office (all downstairs). Guests are always welcomed to use our kitchen, dining area, and first floor! Guests will also be able to access to our Media room, which has a 75" 4K UHD TV, a 7.1 surround sound system, an AppleTV, a Netflix and Amazon Video account, and basic over the air TV channels. It is an excellent space to watch movies or just hang out and listen to music.

Interaction with guests

Let us know what you need, and we will make it happen. We will always be available via phone, txt message, or Airbnb message if you need us when we are away.

Other things to note

Our rescue dogs, Mauzer and Zadie, are crate-trained and rest inside their crates when we are not at home. They are small ~15 pound mutts who enjoy belly-rubs, lounging around, and chasing squirrels in our backyard.

Diana and Paul are very friendly people. They gave us full instructions ahead of the trip and tips everywhere in the house. They provided many different kinds of food available for us as breakfast. The house is very clean with constant temperature, and it's aesthetically and physically comfortable. They have an awesome entertainment room. We had an delighted experience with good rest and surely wish to come again in the future.

There is much to love about Diana and Paul's place. The location is perfect for our occasional visits to North Austin, and the comfort and cleanliness of accommodations is absolutely perfect.

Diana & Paul immediately made me feel welcome and safe. After submitting a small profile describing who we are, they accepted us as guests. They are very quite and we hardly knew they were around. The house is decorated with a wonderful color coordination. There were very nice surprises providing personal care. I highly recommend their home and will definately return.

We are fun, outgoing 30-somethings who recently bought our giant dream home with the intention of filling it up one day with lots of adorable offspring. Until that day, half of it sits impeccably clean, decorated and empty, except for when we have lovely visitors! We absolutely love hosting people and have decided to open our home to the rest of the world.

About Us:
We both came to Austin for college (The University of Texas) over a decade ago, fell in love with the city, and never left. We met in the summer of 2008, and we've been married since 2011. Diana is an elementary school Music and Spanish teacher. Paul is an Electrical and Computer Engineer. We share our home with our two lovely rescue dogs, Mauzer and Zadie. We absolutely love Austin, traveling, and meeting new people!
