Joe helped me plan a surprise marriage proposal for my girlfriend at his villa in Austin. I live in Dallas and needed a great partner to be able to work with to coordinate all the details. I spoke with many of the owners and property managers at Homeaway and immediately knew I had found the right person when I spoke with Joe. He had almost the same level of excitement and enthusiasm about the idea as me!
The house was amazing and looked even better than the pictures. The view was spectacular and we really enjoyed the outdoor terraces as well as the outdoor hot tub. Inside, the house was very clean and everything was in great working condition. There were some great amenities including a media theatre room and a central music system.
In addition, Joe helped me plan every last detail. He laid out flower petals from the entrance to the balcony, setup champagne and decorated the entire house with bouquets of flowers including some dazzling orchids that we still have. He helped find a fantastic chef to cook us dinner during the first evening and masseuses to give us a couple’s massage the next day. Joe and his wife even took us out for an amazing evening on the lake on their boat on one of the days.
My fiancé and I are very grateful to Joe for being such a great host and highly recommend the villa as a great place for a vacation.
