Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. It was very clean and comfortable and also very convenient to Zilker Park and South Congress. The beds were great and we enjoyed relaxing on the patio overlooking Zilker Park.

We could not have asked for a nicer place and we will definately stay there again.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Austin from Minneapolis for a girl's weekend and stayed in this sweet house. The view of the trees and the creek makes it easy to relax and hang in this eclectic home (especially during bad weather - which we had). The house was clean and organized when we arrived, and the departure prep was super easy. Also, the neighborhood and green belt were nice to be near and it was no problem to drive to all of the city's attractions.

We didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

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.
