Michael and his dog, Chloe


Hello! My name is Michael Edelstone and I’m a software designer/developer working remotely for a company called Kuali. I live in San Marcos, Texas and work from home or local coffee shops during the week. On the weekends I watch movies, cook, sleep, and take road trips.

I’m 40 years old and I have a 13-year-old, 50-pound Australian Shepherd mix dog. She is well-exercised (we don't need a yard), hardly ever barks, and is rarely left unattended. I’m way past the partying stage, don’t smoke, and have infrequent guests. I take immaculately good care of the places I live, report issues promptly, and pay on-time 100% of the time.

What I’m looking for

I'd like to rent a stand alone house with 0-1 bedrooms, a full kitchen, and no shared walls or roommates. A space that is well-cared for, modern, and clean. A small house, guest house, or garage apartment has worked well in the past. A quiet place with no excessive street, dog, bird, train, or human noise, and no nearby smokers is ideal. Since I work remotely, fast and reliable internet is important.

I’m highly flexible on terms and pricing if the home meets these qualifications.

Major pluses

  • Country setting or far from neighbors
  • Central (or very efficient) heating and cooling
  • Ability to obtain very fast internet, with personal access to the router for troubleshooting
  • Washer and dryer inside the unit
  • Bundled utilities with rent

More about me

  • Professional designer since 2009
  • 800+ credit score with a decade of solid references
  • Minimalist lifestyle, conservative energy user, and very quiet
  • Super clean and respectful of space
  • Good communication and sense of humor
  • Responsible pet owner; we walk 1.5 hours a day and don’t need a yard
