This property is in my opinion the best possible place you can entertain guests in Austin.
The 2nd best thing about the place is that it is very secluded and very close to downtown. I would challenge somebody to find a better combination of these on VRBO.
The best thing about the place is that the owner, Virginia is super cool and helpful, I loved having such a helpful and understanding owner.
We had a birthday party and had about 20 people over during the day on Saturday. We lucked out and had a 75 degree day and we all hungout poolside and had a good time. After the party, everybody was able to either grab Ubers/Lyfts because we were so close to downtown.
Highly recommend! Thanks Virginia!
We returned for our second stay in Virginia's wonderful home for Family Weekend at UT. What a perfect spot for a weekend visit! The property is well-located. Great neighborhood, close to the highway, and a short 5-10 minute drive to campus. Virginia is a fantastic host. She is responsive and helpful when we needed her, and invisible when we didn't. And the house and grounds are comfortable and spacious, without being too grand or fussy. We ended up hosting a bit of a bash for our son and friends, and it all worked out great. Thanks again, and we're looking forward to our next visit.
It doesn't get much better than this. If you're looking for a clean place, large and spacious, secluded, but not too far from the action this is the place to stay. Absolutely gorgeous home that met all of our needs. Virginia does everything in her power to make sure your experience in Austin is one to remember. As a frequent traveler I would advise others to search no more, this is the place to rent. Thanks again, Virginia!
This was a great find. I would definitely stay there again. The house has a lot to offer and Virginia is a great person to rent from. The home is big and comfortable. The pool and back yard and very nice and it is hard to tell you are in the middle of the city.
Great place tucked away in the hills of central Austin. Only complaint was the ridiculously huge mosquitos at the pool, couldn't enjoy the pool like we wanted which is one of the reasons why we picked this house. Overall nice place.
Virginia is so friendly and made us feel welcome. The house is very secluded. Beware the drive way, it is narrow and needed to be trimmed a bit. The house is very cooly decorated with antiques down to the vintage Vanity Fair magazine and Rolling Stone with Ray Charles, as a young man, on the cover. There was room for everyone. We all loved the pool also. I would highly recommend this location and hope we can book it our next stay in Austin.
Just up the road is Mount Bonnell, Austin's famous historical landmark with the gorgeous skyline at sunset along side Lake Austin with an amazing sunset view, Laguna Gloria, Art Museum with rolling acres and grounds overlooking water into Lake Austin, Mayfield Park were peacocks roam the acres of grounds and nature trails, with ponds and native community gardens. Just down the street from Westwood Country Club along Lake Austin.
