Beautiful home!!

  • 5 of 5
Spent an extended weekend here with the family. Beautiful home, beautiful back yard with great views, and a really great location. We walked to Barton Springs Pool, lots of nearby restaurants. You'd never know you're in the middle of a neighborhood. Everything we needed for a great weekend visit!

Fantastic home and location!

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful house, gorgeous view, fantastic location, convenient to everything, and such thoughtful attention to detail. We walked to Zilker Park and enjoyed a day of kayaking, hiking, etc. We were able to take a short ten minute drive to enjoy eating at Hula Hut and Mozarts, right on Lake Austin. We loved being able to get to downtown almost as quickly where we had a delicious meal on the rooftop patio at Iron Cactus on Sixth Street. And just being able to grill steaks on the incredible patio while enjoying the view was an unexpected pleasure.
Everything was as good or better than promised and we really appreciate the owners going above and beyond; from being flexible with the checkout time, to providing everything from charcoal to butter to drinks in the fridge.

Owner's Response: Thanks David. We enjoyed reading about your family's weekend adventures in Austin, and we're glad you took the opportunity to make use of the charcoal grill on the patio. We think the "details" are important ... drinks in the fridge, charcoal on the patio, spices and condiments in the kitchen ... all these things make renting someone's home such a different and pleasurable travel experience. Glad you had fun, and we hope you come again.

THE place to stay in Austin!

  • 5 of 5
As you look through the Homeaway reviews do you sometimes think "that looks too good to be true"? Well, in the case of this home it's not, the home is even more beautiful than the pictures show.

We did a family vacation with our three adult children for the ACL Music Festival, week 2 - and wanted a place we could all hang together before an after the concerts and be walking distance from Zilker Park.

This place was spot-on. It's easy to find, yet secluded, when you walk up to the front door, you get the feeling of what's to come- not your typical prefab doors but ones of character that continue as you enter the home.

The kitchen, living area flow nicely- with beautiful art throughout. The bedrooms are comfortable and well appointed - the bed in the Master was wonderful - we slept so well. There's even a peek-a-boo view of downtown from the master bed - so cool.

Then, there's the outside patios - looking deep into the greenbelt and down to Barton Creek (which because of record rains - not the owners fault - was quite visible). But the outside space is wonderful.

To cap it off, the owners are wonderful. Communication throughout the process was great. Their welcome package explained everything and the close out/deposit return was beyond timely.

If you're coming to Austin and need a place for your family to hang together, this is it!

Owner's Response: Jim, it's easy to be a good host when you've got great guests! Thanks a million for the kind words and for pointing out some features of the house we've missed in our HomeAway.com descriptions. We're glad you and your family enjoyed your long ACL Festival weekend here and we hope you'll come back and be our guests again.

Great location, great house and amazing patio!

  • 5 of 5
This is a great property with an awesome location near Barton Springs and downtown. I used this house as a central location for all of my friends during my wedding weekend, and the owner Alden was very flexible allowing us to have a late check out our last day. The open floorplan and amazing patio allowed to have plenty of room for our group to socialize and not feel crowded. Plus the house had some very eclectic artwork to give it that Austin feel. I definitely would recommend this home for any of my friends looking for a great place to stay. The owners made us feel very welcome.

AMAZING WEEKEND IN AUSTIN

  • 5 of 5
I want to thank Alden and Barbara for allowing my party to lease their home for a two night stay. The home was beautiful and comfortable. The expansive outdoor decking was well maintained and looked out over a canyon. The owners were easy to deal with and the deposit was returned right away.
Thank you Alden and Barbara, you were awesome to deal with! We hope to visit your home again in the future.
