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.

Perfect bachelorette getaway

  • 5 of 5
I booked this property based on reviews and I can confirm they are all spot on! Drove down from Dallas for my sister's bachelorette weekend. Arrived to popcorn and a bottle of champagne. The house was spotless! Owners pay attention to detail, they think of everything, literally. We forgot straws, they had straws! Girls could not stop raving about how cute the house was! 8 girls slept comfortably. Excellent location. Canoed at Zilker park, then toured 512 brewery, both just minutes from the house. Short cab ride away from West 6th. Owners were quick to respond, helpful and even made the effort to send a quick text to ask us if we needed anything during our stay. Exceeded expectations! Will recommend to anyone looking to visit ATX :-)

Clean, Close, Comfortable

  • 5 of 5
IT'S ALL HERE. The home was immaculate inside and out, with a fully stocked kitchen of seasoning, utensils, dry goods, etc… They even have a Keurig with plenty of coffee in stock. The beds are so soft and the sheets were the best, with plenty of extra pillows too! The outdoor patio and gas grill were also a great bonus for us. In the evening, enjoy the wide screen TV or bring your blue tooth music and link to the wireless speaker. Key-less entry makes it very easy for you to check in - and out. The location could not be better, and the owners are very kind and responsive if you should happen to have a question. We'll be back. Thank you Val and Joel!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived the house was clean, very well put together and was incredibly decorated. The extra amenities at the house really put it over the top. The ping pong table, grill, fire pit, horseshoes and tether ball were great "extras". The owners were an absolute pleasure to deal with and checking in and out of the house was as easy as it could possibly be. We had 8 people in our group and we all slept comfortably in this house. A great experience overall and the location was a quick trip to all the restaurants and bars. Lots of great food within a couple minutes.

Perfect House -- Great Hosts -- Must Stay!

  • 5 of 5
A group of us came in for a Bachelor party weekend. The house was in the perfect location and walking distance to some great food and beverage places. The house came supplied with pretty much everything you can imagine. We were a short cab ride to downtown Rainey St and 6th St. Valerie and Joel we're great hosts and were very accommodating to our late departure.

I would certainly recommend this property to any family or group coming in for a long week or weekend. I hope I get the chance to come back soon! Thanks again for everything Valerie and Joel!!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Right from the start when I was considering this house for a bachelorette stay Valerie was prompt with responses and so understanding about how it can take a week or two to finalize plans with 8 girls! Her husband and her are so great and wonderful, house met beyond expectations. From the moment we arrived the house was fully stocked with everything that we needed down to even lent rollers for goodness sakes! Don't feel the need to go buy paper towels or anything Valerie has got it covered! The house was so beautiful as was their backyard. Very secure and safe and easy lock system for the house for 8 girls staying there! Leaving the house was super easy and perfect too, all she asked was that we throw a load of towels in the wash and lock up. What an awesome lady, the house made the whole bachelorette experience totally stress free and everyone had a blast. Would always come back here and definitely will in the future and will refer others! Sweetest couple ever!

Cutest House, Great Location, Amazing Owner!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment I began considering this house for our bachelorette party weekend and emailed Valerie, I had a great feeling I made the right decision. She was prompt with her communication and extremely helpful. She let us mail her our decorations and went to the house to set them up for us prior to our arrival to surprise our bachelorette. When we arrived, we all fell in love with this adorable, well decorated (and stocked) house. There were 9 of us and we all slept comfortably and the house had everything you would want in a rental for the weekend (shower towels, beach towels, extra linens for pull out, stocked kitchen utensils, etc.) The location was on point as well. We were minutes away from everything in Austin. All in all, we couldnt be happier with our choice for this house and already made plans to come back in the near future for a girls weekend and stay here again! Please know that you are in great hands with Valerie and Joel's house- you will not be let down! Thanks again!
