Guestbook comments from the owner
Everything was wonderful! You have a beautiful home and the neighborhood was a retreat from the craziness of SXSW.



We especially enjoyed the music system and the living area. I got stuck among the bookshelves more than once, a nice collection. It was fun to see the deer that hang out in the cool trees (oak maybe). The concierge service you recommended was great as well, she did a nice job stocking our fridge so we didn't have to think about it. Thank you!

Jessica & Paul built this modern home in 2010 to create a design-focused resort-like escape in the heart of Austin. We personally make sure that every renter has a truly amazing stay. Contact us if you have any questions!

Jessica & Paul purchased this estate in 2010

It all started with an amazing piece of land -- a 1+ acre flat lot in the heart of Austin, TX. Working with prominent New York architects, we designed a comfortable modern house that is tranquil during the day and perfect for entertaining in the evenings. There is a big yard for kids to play and a infinity-edge salt water pool. We love eating outside most of the year on the covered patio or pool-side dining table. The house is amazingly peaceful and private -- even with large groups.

While many people think of Texas as flat, the dramatic Texas Hill Country begins just West of downtown. We built our house in these first heavily wooded limestone hills, nearly 500 feet above downtown and only minutes from the center of the action. The hills and towering oak trees provide a dramatic natural backdrop for glass-filled modern house. We designed the house and pool around the trees and natural environment, making it a perfect place for indoor-outdoor living and entertaining.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5
Paul and Jessica recently opened their West Lake home to my family for a weekend birthday celebration... and wow, it was truly unbelievable. The architecture, the design and the backdrop made it an absolutely amazing experience. It was clear that Paul and Jessica have put so much time and thought into making it such a special place. The pictures are accurate but it was so much nicer in real life. It was also an easy 10 min drive to downtown but we actually preferred staying at the house ?(which was immaculate btw). The infinity pool overlooking the hills was an especially great place for us to relax. The whole house Sonos sound system was also a treat. If you have the opportunity to stay at this house, I would highly, highly recommend.

FABULOUS 40TH CELEBRATION!

  • 5 of 5
What can I say… Thank you thank you thank you! We had a truly amazing weekend. The story goes that in our circle of friends, for each person's 40th birthday we do a destination celebration and 10-15 of us all fly in from around the country to the city of the birthday boy or girl's choosing. Last weekend was Austin and this home could not have been a better choice. First and foremost the owners were wonderful to work with… super accommodating and easily reachable to answer questions prior to our arrival. Once we did arrive we were in awe of the house overall. The decor was perfectly balanced between warm and modern. The layout was perfect for a large group offering plenty of space of us to spend time together but also get away for some alone time to sneak that inevitable quick work call. We spent plenty of time lounging around the pool, relaxing in the gorgeous living room which we coined the "disco room"... and cooking meals in the fabulous kitchen. A wonderful weekend in a wonderful home!

THE PERFECT SPOT IN AUSTIN

  • 5 of 5
The house is just as it appears in the pictures. You can lounge on the back deck or sprawl out in the over-sized living room right off of the chef's kitchen. Bedrooms everywhere and the house is stocked with all you need to make it the perfect trip. Also, it's on a secluded street away but just a 2 minute drive to a shopping center and 5 miles from the heart of downtown. We can't recommend this place highly enough! Oh, and all the little bells and whistles like a Sonos multi room music player (perfect for the pool) and various mood lighting etc etc the list goes on. Enjoy!

AMAZING HOUSE - GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous girls weekend in Austin. First and foremost, the house was absolutely amazing: impeccable design in each and every room, plenty of space to spread out, huge common areas (living room + kitchen) perfect for hanging out together, a beautiful infinity pool with nice landscaping. We even saw deer from the back patio. Amazing art, high end furnishings, great views…my list could go on and on.

The home’s location was also great. Close enough to easily drive (or cab) to downtown/6th street but far enough out to feel like you can get away and relax. There is also a HEB (grocery store) about a mile away in case you need anything.

The homeowners were fabulous and very easy to work with. They left all of the needed information for us and were very easy to contact, but also gave us privacy for our trip. They have a concierge service to help with dinner reservations, stocking the kitchen, etc but we didn't need it for this visit.

If you are looking for a place to stay, I would highly recommend staying here. You will not be dissapointed. We are already talking about our next trip back!

HOLY GOD, THIS PLACE IS F*#KING AMAZING.

  • 5 of 5
Paul and Jessica designed and built this house, and it is incredible. Modern, clean design, and yet still warm and comfortable, the well-appointed layout is at once practical and uplifting. And then there's the spectacular modern and local and New York-procured and Central American art... and the infinity pool... and the view of the Austin hills... and the Live Oak trees moving naturally throughout the property... and the many-pointed buck who whispered past my window early one morning... And the rich, beautiful use of color and shape and glass in every room... Seriously, I can't even believe they rent this place. It's that amazing. You will love it.
