We had a wonderful time. More than once, Mom said it was the best birthday ever. Thank you for lending us the use of your lovely home. We love the West Lynn area and were happy to be within walking distance of some of our favorite spots.

Great location, beautiful home

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this beautiful house for a long weekend and had a great time. There were 3 adults and 3 kids and we had plenty of room. The master suite was particularly private and quiet and the big tub and big shower were a real treat. The owner is an artist and art collector and we had great fun looking at all the interesting things she has on display. However the art did not get in the way of it being a very functional place to stay for a sizeable family.

The location was convenient to absolutely everything we wanted to do, just minutes from highways and restuarants, but still nestled in a quiet and friendly neighborhood and with a really pretty yard (the pictures don't do it justice!). This is a gem of a 1920's home with wonderful architectural detail and significant interior and exterior renovations.

Everything was clean and well-maintained and the owner was very attentive and provided tourist information, current events and maps for our use.

Thanks for a great time!

Amazing Property / Amazing Hostess

  • 5 of 5
5 business women from South Padre Island go to the hill country to get away from our madness. This is the first time we have all come together to Austin and we could not have asked for a more wonderful home. We enjoyed drinking wine out on the porch. The house itself is very eclectic with lots to look at (artwork, books, etc) and enjoyment of the warmth of the house. Although we normally fight each other to cook, we didn't cook a thing (went out all the time), but really enjoyed the kitchen - definitely gourmet with all you could ask for in a kitchen - gas stove, convection oven. Debbie was very accommodating especially since we couldn't make up our minds when we would arrive and she was able to meet us at the house even though it was last minute communication. She had fabulous recommendations and was very attentive when needed. We could stay for a month and not see everything we wanted to see so we will definitely be back. Thanks again, Debbie.

Amazing Property / Amazing Hostess

Debbie was great about answering questions, meeting us at the property and calling later to make sure we were happy or if we needed any other information. The house was very eclectic with interesting books, artwork and other visuals. The kitchen was gourmet - wouldn't you know, this was the time we didn't cook at all - but everything was available including a gas oven and convection oven. We were 5 business women wanting a break from South Padre. We had great times out on the porch drinking wine and watching people. We enjoyed many restaurants, shopping and night life and could spend another week and not see everything we wanted to see. I am sure we will be back. Thank you, Debbie!

Charming home in historic Clarksville Austin

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this lovely home for my daughters graduation. The owner was very accommodating and made our stay very comfortable. There was a problem with the air-conditioning when we arrived but the owner was right on it and had it fixed in one day. She was also very helpful with places to eat and enjoy within walking distance from her home.
We loved all the decorations and art pieces in the home. It has a very historic feel yet very livable. We walked to Zilker park on some beautiful trails. We also walked to Austin based Whole Foods and the Capital. Found some great little stores on 6th Street. Everything is close enough where you can walk if you have some good shoes and sturdy legs.

Owner's Response: So happy to hear you had a nice stay at my home! You would think after purchasing a 16 Seer High Efficiency Carrier Central Air and Heat Unit only two years ago, I wouldn't have any trouble with it. They have assured me that it should run just fine now. I am so glad it did not affect your stay. I look forward to seeing you again!

Great House. Good Location.

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 6 stayed here very comfortably. The house is great and offers a great back yard where we spent all of our time when we weren't out exploring. Deb is very nice and accommodating. There are three great bars nearby on 6th. Other destinations will require a short cab ride and beware the waiting time for a cab pickup (sometimes over an hour)!! I highly recommend this house.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jonathan for writing! There are many restaurants, shopping, parks and some great bars in walking distance. Everything else is just down the street. Sometimes during special events, it's good to plan ahead when calling a cab. There are several cab companies in town to try if one is running behind. I look forward to seeing you again sometime.

Great for a group get a way!!

  • 5 of 5
We booked this house for a group of 8 for the Valentine's weekend and loved it! It was perfect for a group of 8, and Deborah was so accommodating and helpful with everything. The rooms are fantastic, and the house has a great location; we could not have been in a better spot for getting to everywhere easily and quickly. Would not hesitate to stay here again, thanks so much for letting us borrow your house!
