Best Austin Get Away

  • 5 of 5
This was the best get away we could possibly find in Austin. The location is central, the neighborhood is so quiet and safe. The pool is absolute perfection. The beds are incredibly comfortable. We plan on renting the same house again for the future. I would recommend this house to anyone who stays in Austin.

Beautiful home, lovely area!

  • 5 of 5
Our friends stayed in this gorgeous home the week of our wedding in Austin and on their behalf I can confirm how much they loved it!
Katie was very accommodating in meeting us to pick up the keys at a convenient time and showing us around the house. It felt like walking onto a californian set of Mad Men, in the heart of Zilker area in Austin.
The swimming pool is also a very very welcome treat!

I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful peaceful Austin get away. All rooms are spacious, and many bathrooms means everyone had their own little private corner. I would happily stay in this house myself as a local Austin hideaway!

Loved my stay at the Rental. The location is perfect for Austin. Close to the music venues and great eateries. Downtown is easy to get to along the river.
The house is a split level which allows for the kids to be downstairs watching the TV, while the adults can sit around the pool. The neighborhood has side walks and there is a park near by. I will use this rental again.

Wonderful Oasis close to the City

  • 5 of 5
I LOVE THIS HOUSE! I wish I could take it to Oregon with me but then there is no sun there to enjoy by the pool. This is the perfect set-up for a big family of all ages. I love all of the bedrooms with a different color for each room. I love the character of the house. We usually stay at hotels when we go on vacation but took the chance to rent a house for the week that we were visiting our niece and nephew at UT. I am SO happy that we took that chance. Having a relaxing place to go back to that has such a comfy atmosphere was great. The kitchen was stocked withh all the amenities that I have at home. (blender, mixing bowls, plenty of gadgets, etc...) My little kids loved the neighborhood, we were there for Halloween and went Trick-or-Treating to all the neighbors. Zilker Park is a great kid friendly place within walking distance.
We will definitely return to this wonderful home.
Thank You!

Great location, but needs TLC

  • 3 of 5
If your vacation includes a group of friends, this house is probably a great fit. However, my recent trip to Austin was to spend time with family (6 adults, 2 children) and attend a wedding. This meant spending a little more time in the house - in this regard, the house fell below our expecations. I recognize that people want different things out of their vacation and house rentals, so I've included a pro/con list. Hope it helps.

Pros: (1) responsive owners and management (worked with us on price and quick to address emails/questions). (2) great location (up the street from Zilker Park and close to restaurants) (3) backyard - nice landscaping and pool, (4) bedrooms - nice decor and comfortable beds, (5) family room - enough seating for large groups (max about 6), (6) washer and dryer (big plus with kids)

Cons: (1) kitchen - old, small, and closed off to other rooms. if you don't plan to spend time in the kitchen, then this is probably irrelevant. but families tend to gather in the kitchen, which was EXTREMELY tiny and closed off to the the living room. Only space for 4 to sit at the table. Although there was a larger dining table, it is located in a separate room. Owners should consider knocking down a wall or two. Also, the kitchen wasn't particularly well-kept and b/c it is old, it felt dirty, particularly inside the cabinets. (2) Amenities - the house, on average, works out to about $140-175 per room/night (4 rooms). In a hotel, for that price, I expect certain amenities - soaps, shampoos, towels, etc. Don't expect that here. Towels were plentiful. But basic bar soaps (costco - not a big deal, but when on vacation, you want something nicer) and no shampoo. Took us awhile to find toilet paper (extra was not in the bathrooms but in a random location in the laundry room). (3) Keys - if you stay here with a group, request an extra set of house keys. You need the keys to lock the door from the inside (you can't just lock the door behind you) - if you are coming/going at different times with friends/family, this creates a logistical problem. A few of us wanted to be out late, so those that stayed back had to sleep with the door unlocked, otherwise we would have had to wake them up to get back in.
(4) Overall - house is old and it feels like it. you can't tell from the photos. but, once you get in, you'll find the 1970's bedroom doors stick to the frames making impossible to quietly open/shut them, showerheads are short, bathrooms are old.

Great Austin stay!

  • 5 of 5
I just got back from a week in Eli's House with my husband and 18 month old son, my mother and sister. Similar to other reviews, very true to the photos and an easy walk to Zilker Park and a nearby mini mart. A very short drive to downtown and super cute outdoor restaurants on Barton Springs Rd like Shady Grove. Also very close to S. Lamar Blvd eats- Kerbey Lane, Matt's El Rancho, Amy's Ice Cream and essentials like Walgreens.

I knew going in that this house wasn't super child proof with the pool and all the stairs but I couldn't resist the funky look of the house and the backyard so just a note to those people but with enough supervision, it was fine and my son loved the pool! There was also a high chair that we used frequently. We did wish there were some lounge chairs for sitting out at the pool but just a minor request for the sun goddesses (yes, even in early March).

The house was impeccably clean when we got there, linens, kitchen supplies, etc were plentiful. Katie was very responsive but we really had no problems during our stay.

I want to go back with my girlfriends to truly enjoy the full use of this great house.

Austin at its finest! A short 10 minute walk gets you swimming in Barton Springs Pool, attending ACL, Blues On The Green and Kite Fest in Zilker Park, or enjoying the hike and bike trail, not to mention easy access to SoLa's eateries and shops (South Lamar district). Downtown Austin is about a 2 mile cab ride.
