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

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.

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.

The BEST Bachelorette Weekend!!!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 11, 2014
  • Stayed: Apr 2014
Thank you so much for providing such a LOVELY home for our weekend stay in Austin! It was one to remember!!!

We had 10 girls stay the night here for a bachelorette weekend. We all fit comfortably! First, let me say the pictures do NOT do this place justice! Much roomier than we expected! We used the quality air mattress Valerie provides for our additional two guests.

I received many compliments on picking this house. Everyone loved the decor, ambiance, and indoor & outdoor space (the ping pong table and tether ball were both hits!) The house was very clean.

I cannot stress how convenient the location is! South Congress and downtown are just minutes away!!! Such an awesome perk of renting this home. We ate at Casa Maria Mexican Restaurant on Friday night, then did a wine tasting tour Saturday where we ate lunch at the Salt Lick. Saturday night we stopped at Botticelli's (GREAT food!) on South Congress which is just a few minutes away from the house. Then we made our way to 6th Street, of course. On our way back to San Antonio, we stopped at Hopdoddy on South Congress--also a must! We ate very well during our stay! But I have to say the highlight to our mini-vacation had to be this home! I know all the girls agreed.

This was my first time using HomeAway and Valerie was great to work with. She was very quick to respond to all my emails and questions! She even left us some yummy gourmet popcorn. :)

Thank you again--we will definitely stay here next time!!!

Five of my girlfriends and I went to Austin to celebrate my 30th birthday. This property had great reviews, was in a great location, and seemed to be everything I wanted for the weekend. It did not disappoint! Valerie was awesome to work with prior to our stay (and very patient with my many questions) and guest instructions were very clear during our visit. Excellent customer service! The house was clean upon our arrival, had all ammenities we could have wanted, and the six of us were very comfortable throughout the weekend (the living room is ideal for an impromptu dance party!). I would recommend this property to others traveling to Austin and looking for a "homier" place to stay versus a hotel. I will definitely contact Valerie the next time I travel to Austin for a special occasion! Thanks for an awesome birthday weekend! :)

Me and 8 friends joined together for a bachelorette weekend in Austin. I cannot express how perfect this house was for us! It had everything we needed and was in a perfect location. Everything worked wonderfully...I would love to come back and stay at this house! My favorite part was the backyard, it is perfect for hanging out and having fun. On a side note, the beds were SO comfortable and the blow up mattress for our extra guests was huge! We are so thankful to have found this property and we will be coming back!

Beyond Expectations!! Amazing!!

First of all, the house was absolutely incredible. Far exceeded our expectations (which were already very high after seeing the pictures, reading the reviews and speaking with Valerie). About half of us arrived on Thursday and enjoyed a few drinks while unpacking and waiting on another friend to arrive. Although it was chilly, we used all the amenities quite a bit. Horse shoes, fire pit, and ping pong were great but the real winner was tetherball. Something about abunch of 25 year old men playing heated matches of tetherball was absurdly entertaining. We ate dinner at Hop Doddy that night and it was everything people said it would be. Burgers were grrrreeeat (as Tony the Tiger would say)

The location couldn't have been better. Walking distance to numerous bars and restaurants, and a short cab ride from everything else.

Both Thursday and Friday nights we went to bars on W 6th st. Kung Fu and Dogwood were our favorites. E 6th St reminded us of how we probably used to act in college (or highschool because everyone looked extremely young on E 6th).

Saturday we woke up early and went to Top Golf. It was too much fun. Directly following golf, we took a party bus to Salt Lick BBQ (the one that is about 25 min or so away). I think the group of us consumed our weight in brisket.....so good. Saturday night we went to Doc's to watch some college basketball games then went out on Rainey St. That area was much more our style. The old houses turned bars were unique and really fun.

We all agreed that the house played such a major role in the enjoyment of the trip. It was so close to everything, the amenities you have were top-notch, the house was very very clean.

I recommend this house for anyone looking to enjoy the best that Austin has to offer. We had 8 guys for a bachelor party but the house would be perfect for any occasion and any age!

We booked a week ahead for a Christmas trip with our 20-something boys and the whole experience was excellent from beginning to end. The property is so perfectly appointed for guests--not cluttered with personal junk--and clearly well thought out and cared for. We loved the gleaming wood floors and the lovely, well-stocked kitchen (we made one big feast and had everything we needed), and having laundry right there was such a great convenience. The bedrooms have ipod-ready radios and super comfy beds. And yes, as others have said, the towels are fluffy and thick. We only wish the weather had been warmer at night, as we had hoped to enjoy the outside patio and fire pit more. We'll just have to come back in another season.

The location was super convenient--15 mins by car from the airport and 3-5 minutes from a grocery store and the heart of the SoCo business district. And it's a few short blocks of a walk to Torchy's, the best tacos ANYWHERE.

Valerie was an exceptionally gracious and responsive host--from our first initial phone call (when she patiently answered all my questions) to when we had a technical glitch getting in on Xmas evening to when I accidentally left my driver's license in the house and she texted me and mailed it immediately the next day. When we needed neighborhood advice on where to eat on Xmas night and where to print out boarding passes, she was right on it. And I have to say, the house's instruction booklet is the best I've seen--very thorough and clear.

The house is small, but very well laid out and the patio and yard add a lot of space. It was a perfect size for the four of us. The walls are thin, so don't expect any privacy, and the house next door is a few feet away, so we kept the window shades down on that side. No big deal, tho.

We'd come back again in a shot.
