I rented the house from Tom for SXSW 2013 and it was a great experience. This year, I was tasked with planning a bachelor party in Austin and thought the house would be a good fit again. Tom did not fail to deliver. When we arrived, the house was perfectly clean and we had everything we needed. I think Tom has upped his game from last year and all the information and resources are well laid out and easy to find. The dock was in good condition and we used the kayaks a bit to explore the lake. It was beautiful especially in the evening. We comfortably fit 11 guys in the house and had a great time making breakfasts in the large, well equipped kitchen and drinking beers and watching the NCAA tournament in the evenings. You really can't beat the distance of the house from central Austin as well. It's so easy to go to almost any part of Austin from the house. I would definitely rent again from Tom!
