Interaction with guests
I will not be present during the guests' stay. They may reach me or my representative if any problems occur.
Other things to note
Great barbecue 8 miles west of us in the village of Castell, TX. Live music about 30 miles northwest at Hilltop Cafe. Or just relax into the serene hill country surroundings.
No smoking inside any building; smoking allowed on decks. Discuss pets with owner. Check with owner about periodic burn bans on campfires. Cancellation fees apply. There is a laminated instruction sheet for how to use the dishwashers (yes, some folks don't understand what does or does not go in the dishwasher) as well as other house rules, such as do not take the plush nice white towels to the dirty dusty river bank and don't use the white towels to clean up messes, especially spilled wine. There are tons of rag towels under the sink in the laundry room for those purposes. There is also a bin under the bunk bed with beach towels for going down to the river. The next door neighbor to the west is VERY prickly about having anyone step on her property--you'll notice she's put up "No Trespassing" signs every few feet on the property line. She seems like a pretty unhappy person, so stay on our side, please.
Otherwise, please treat our river compound as you would your own place--carefully and with respect. Thank you.

With all three of our children now grown, my husband, Fred, and I are enjoying the freedom of travel, reading whenever we like, going to movies, eating out at the many great restaurants in Austin, and attempting adventurous new recipes with good friends. We look forward to meeting new people from all over the world with our Guesthouse Zipp Airbnb venture. If I were to summarize my view of life, I think it would be: experiences are better than things.
I am managing the Garden Oasis Guesthouse for my good friends, Yvonne and Tom who own an advertising and marketing company. Their place is gorgeous--5 star living at a 3 star price. They are warm and welcoming so if you choose their Guesthouse you'll be guaranteed a wonderful Austin experience. It's perfect for executives who want a quiet private space for meetings or entertaining.
