Austin was extremely cold during our visit and this Santa Fe style retreat was the perfect home to do nothing but hang out, look at the hillside view and visit with our family. It was clean, artfully decorated and architecturally a delight to enjoy. The kitchen and bathrooms were stocked with all that we needed to live in the home with every convenience we needed. The only thing we missed was nice weather to enjoy the patio area.

Art House

  • 5 of 5
Am an Austin resident who had family visiting from out of town during the Christmas holidays. We needed a nice, large, centrally located rental for 5 adults. After considerable research we found this place and immediately fell in love with it. In all respects this home was delightful to stay in. The open living area and beautiful back porch/terrace were both spacious and comfortable. The kitchen and dining areas provided a colorful space to prepare and enjoy meals, and the kitchen utensils, pots, pans, plates, and glasses were in abundant supply. We prepared our own meals during our stay (with the exception of some world famous Franklin BBQ) and thoroughly enjoyed the colorful furnishings of the wine glass rack and elegant glass plates on display. The whole house was thoughtfully furnished with paintings that ranged from the serious to the whimsical, and we came to refer to this place as the Art House.

We could not have asked for more congenial owners to rent from. At every step of the rental process they were helpful, open, and extremely friendly, going out of their way to make us feel comfortable. On Christmas day we received a Merry Christmas text from the owners who asked us to let them know if they could help us with any issues or questions regarding the house.

From the festive Merry Christmas banner which greeted us over the Spanish mission doors at the entry, to the the serene flagstone porch and terraced backyard which overlooked the Barton Creek greenbelt in the back, we loved the spacious and serene beauty of this place. We would definitely book here again.

Very nice house

  • 5 of 5
The house was very clean and beautifully decorated with lots of eclectic and interesting art throughout. It backs up to the greenbelt so there is quite a bit of privacy, although the houses on either side keep it from feeling too remote. The only downside for my family (which is strictly just a personal preference) is that there were no window treatments on all of the windows facing the back, including the floor to ceiling windows in the shower area. This left us feeling exposed, especially since we arrived at night and couldn't see out but felt like we were visible to anyone who might be outside. Again, this is how we felt, but there are probably many people who would view this feature as an asset.
The owners were responsive to our questions and were available when needed.

Great house, responsive property manager

  • 5 of 5
This is a great house, with lots of art, comfortable beds, and a nice neighborhood. The owner was so helpful and responsive. Be aware that you will need to drive to dinner, shopping, etc., but you get a quiet night's sleep in exchange for that. And this house is a close drive to downtown, Zilker Park, etc. Will definitely rent this home again.

Perfect House, Perfect Location!

  • 4 of 5
My friends and I have been going to ACL Music Fest for many years. As the person always in charge of lodging for this event, my first priority has always been location; walking distance to ACL gates (which is not as easy as it sounds.) What a wonderful surprise to find the perfect location AND the perfect house! Everything said about this house is true: beautiful, comfortable, great patio with phenomenal views. We are ready to book for next year already.
