Right from the start when I was considering this house for a bachelorette stay Valerie was prompt with responses and so understanding about how it can take a week or two to finalize plans with 8 girls! Her husband and her are so great and wonderful, house met beyond expectations. From the moment we arrived the house was fully stocked with everything that we needed down to even lent rollers for goodness sakes! Don't feel the need to go buy paper towels or anything Valerie has got it covered! The house was so beautiful as was their backyard. Very secure and safe and easy lock system for the house for 8 girls staying there! Leaving the house was super easy and perfect too, all she asked was that we throw a load of towels in the wash and lock up. What an awesome lady, the house made the whole bachelorette experience totally stress free and everyone had a blast. Would always come back here and definitely will in the future and will refer others! Sweetest couple ever!

Talk about 5 Star service from the owner Michael. It's one thing to find a great house so close to the downtown Austin scene, it's another when complimented by the guidance of such a connected owner. As for the house, it fit our party of 10 comfortably for a fabulous 4th of July Bachelor party with the boys. More than adequate deck and table space surround the house for outside grilling and chilling. The kitchen and bathrooms were clean, stocked and ready for use. And the location was just a short walk to the music, dining and bar scene of downtown Austin. As for the owner, Michael, it got even better. He sat with us for an hour the first day at a local taco joint making recommendations for our weekend entertainment. From dining, bars, paddle boarding, golf, boating and sight seeing he never stirred us wrong. Have a large group and sick of the taxis? He had a party bus available to take us to Lake Travis. For a great, safe and fun time..... Stay Here! Thank you Sticks.

The listing description was accurate, as were the amenities described. The property wasn't as clutter-free and clean as I would have liked it- but maybe that's because I'm a neat freak! We loved Mike (the owner) and Louis (the gardner)- they were very personable! There were no sheets or pillowcases on two of the beds when we arrived- but I called Mike and he said (after apologizing) he'd be happy to come over and take care of it. (That wasn't necessary!) Additionally we ran out of coffee (egads!), paper towels and bath soap. Again, Mike was wonderfully responsive- and we had them that afternoon! We loved having fresh eggs in the morning, and our youngest son loved the chickens and ducks! (The garden was amazing!) We would have loved spending more time at the backyard firepit- but our trip was centered around visiting family in the hospital. Location was great for us- because it was just a few streets down from family members. Mike did ask if there was anything he could do to make up for some of the issues we had encountered during our stay- and we told him it wasn't necessary. I would definitely recommend the property as I think the issues we encountered aren't the norm AND you can't beat having a homeowner go out of their way to make things right!!
