About Valerie Granoff

Joel and Valerie are thrilled to offer our second rental after one year of renting our own residence (Homeaway #958925) for the past year. We are so grateful to live in such a wonderful city and are thrilled to host our guests in luxurious style so they may enjoy Austin and all that it has to offer. One of us bleeds orange and is a Longhorn Alum., the other a Northwestern Wildcat. We love the music scene, are foodies at heart with adventurous spirits to locate the next and best restaurant or trailer and don't miss a festival when possible. WE LOVE AUSTIN and know you will too!!

Valerie Granoff purchased this house in 2012

Why Valerie Granoff chose Austin

We bought this property to allow for easy access to one of our favorite parts of town. But we only wanted a property that was beautiful, updated and was as nice to stay in as it was to leave given its perfect location. The entire area is blossoming with new remodels.

What makes this house unique

We looked for many months for the perfect property in the perfect location--we wanted to have it all!! And we found it. This home offers the best of a great use of beautifully remodeled space, room to easily entertain and close to all of the attractions that make Austin one of the greatest places on earth.

Exquisite property & luxurious amenities!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were one of three couples staying the weekend at this property for the Lone Star Round-Up (classic, vintage & rat rod car show). Upon arrival, we were greeted with a box of bakery cookies and a note from Val & Joel welcoming us. The home and yard are so very beautiful, the beds and linens were five-star luxury! The photos don't do it justice! There is so much thought and care put into every detail of the home. The location is close enough to the action on SoCo to take a $5 cab or about a mile's walk down Congress to our favorite restaurants and shops. Thanks, Val & Joel for making our Austin trip so memorable!!! Highly recommended and would love to stay again next year!

Would love to come back!

  • 5 of 5

We were 9 girls here for a long weekend for a bachelorette party. We got there and we were very pleasantly surprised by how NICE the house was. It was modern, clean, and spacious. We immediately felt that we had made a great choice. The house was fully stocked. The outdoor space was just as we imagined - so pleasant. I would say that the actual place looks much better than the pictures. We uber'ed to restaurants and events downtown, about 5-10 dollars a trip. We walked to SOCO shopping area. Would definitely stay again. I have no complaints whatsoever about our stay!

CLEAN!!! COMFORTABLE home in Austin TX

  • 5 of 5

The very first ting I noticed about the home was its cleanliness. Appliances were new including washer/dryer. Beds were comfy and plenty of towels to go around. The fence enclosed backyard gave us a chance to have a great fire in the firepit and a mean game or two of Ping-Pong.

Beautiful and Fully-equipped Home

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed this house! It is fully stocked with anything you need, and if you don't have it, you can go anywhere within walking distance to get it. The backyard is unbelievable! The ping pong table was right up our alley. The owners have a great attention to detail, and they were so kind and flexible with us! The description is accurate, but once you get there, it is more than you can see online. I'd 100% recommend this to everyone I know. Thank you, thank, you, thank you!

Great house, good location

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house and one nearby to accomodate girls for my sister's bridal shower and bachelorette weekend. We had friends and family travel in from DC, MD, Puerto Rico, Alabama, Oklahoma and Texas. Valerie allowed for early check in since my mother was getting in before noon. The home was well-appointed, with everything you could possibly need. Valerie kindly had cookies delivered and they were delicious. The beds were comfortable, and we easily slept 5 in that house, but the closet is big enough to put another airbed in, which the home also comes with. The location is great, but a little further from the attractions on SoCo than we thought. Easily fixed though with the use of the Uber app (like a cab, but cheaper and people pick you up in their own cars. We never waited more than 10 min for a pick up). Valerie was very responsive and checked on us after we arrived. That said, the house book and lease agreement with expectations in it said to keep noise level down after 10pm. We had girls arriving to meet up at this house and of course we congregated on the inviting patio, with nice weather outside. With 10 girls visiting (before we could gather everyone and take 1/2 to the other house nearby), it can be a little noisy. However, we were notified at 7:45 on a Friday night that we should keep the noise down, that there were babies next door. I took care of it since I didn't want to argue, but we were a little bummed to know that we were expected to keep it down so early in the evening on such a beautiful Austin night. I mean, how can you build a patio like this and not expect people to congregate there and enjoy themselves?!

That said, we took ourselves down a notch and moved inside after 10pm. We spent late evenings at the other house nearby where neighbors didn't complain.

Valerie also allowed for a late check out at 1pm. This accommodated guests who were not leaving till later that afternoon.

We had a fantastic time and very much enjoyed our stay in Austin. The property is immaculate and very well decorated. The owners are fantastic and very helpful . Well we initially had some issues with the smoke alarm they were very quickly resolved and the owners were always available and extremely helpful. We highly recommend this property for any Austin Texas days!
