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.

GREAT PLACE AND WEEKEND!

  • 5 of 5
I hoasted a bachelorette party for my best friend here this past weekend. Great location, a short cab ride away to great restaurants and bars and plenty of space for 8 girls all getting ready at the same time. I have rented homes twice before, and I loved the extra touches that the owners provided (girls love fresh flowers and wine plus many more nice extras). The beds were super comfy and enough towels for all 8 of us without doing laundry during the weekend. Would definately stay here again!!

CLEAN AND MODERN IN SOCO

  • 5 of 5
Val and Joel have a beautiful property in SoCo, in a quiet neighborhood. The description matches what you get and then some!!! The home has easy access to I-35, Hwy 71, and Downtown and the airport. On arrival, everything was CLEAN, easy to find, and organized. We used all 3 bedrooms and even the couch because of snoring ;) Everyone slept well and the beds and linens were comfortable. The two bathrooms were more than enough to accommodate everyone in the party (6). They also had important necessities like coffee with lots of options, s'mores for the fire pit out back, a beautiful grill, and most importantly a dishwasher to make cleaning up easy.
Val was super easy to get a hold of and talk with prior to arriving at the property. Everything at the home was so well maintained that we did not have any problems or need to contact them during our stay. But if we would have I'm sure it would have been a quick response ;)
We had a multi-generational group staying at the house and it was nice that there were outside activities like horseshoes, and ping pong, plus board games and blocks inside for any age group to play during down time together. They also had plenty of TV channels if you wanted to veg as well. The house is also within walking distance to the famous Torchy's Tacos and Amy's ice cream, which were big hits with our bunch.
The whole experience from start to finish was so easy, the house was beautiful inside and out, plus clean! I could not recommend this property more for a family group or large group stay. If this one is available, don't look any further, book it!!!

AWESOME WEEKEND RENTAL/GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
This house is perfect inside and out!! We celebrated our twin son's graduation from UT and were able to host this 3 day celebration with a lot of friends and family very comfortably. The weather was perfect so we played tether ball and frisbee out back, all sat on the covered patio for lunch and enjoyed the fire pit in the evening. The mexican restaurant next door did a great job catering our lunch one day and we had Bar B Q delivered the following day. The owners here have thought of anything and everything you may need to make your stay very comfortable, plus the house was very clean! Thanks so much and we will continue to recommend you to our friends.

PALACE JUST OUTSIDE OF DOWNTOWN

  • 5 of 5
From start to finish we had a blast! Valerie was so helpful and the house had everything you could ever need.... Even keurig pods for coffee :)
Loved the huge back yard and patio ! All the beds were super comfortable. The house is pretty much right on congress street so it's just a short walk to all the cool restaurants and shops . Walk to Hopdoddys and have an epic burger .
I also recommend Rudy's BBQ and Lucy's fried chicken . The W hotel pool on Saturday is really fun too .
Cool rooftop bars are summit and rio we had a blast !

COZY AND FUN!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for a girl's getaway weekend, and it was a perfect home-away-from-home! Everything was very clean, amenities were easy to find, the beds were comfortable and the patio was cool, comfortable and relaxing (even though it was 90 degrees outside.

I'm hoping we can come back soon!

P.S. Thanks for the yummy popcorn treats too. :)

BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY WITH GREAT AMENITIES!

  • 5 of 5
We held a friend's Bachelorette Party here last weekend and could not be happier with the house. You can tell a great deal of thought has been put into making guests comfortable. The property is beautiful and has all the amenities you could ask for. There were plenty of towels, games, kitchenwares, and snacks/condiments. There were even fresh cut flowers in the dining room and bathrooms!

The owners are great! They make check-in and check-out very easy and even texted to make sure everything was going well.

The location is great too! There are several restaurants within walking distance and it's only a short cab ride to downtown.

I'd love to come back and stay. I highly recommend it!
