About Amanda & Greg

We've lived in Austin since 1996 and love the city! Amanda has been a licensed Realtor in Austin for 12 years, and we personally manage all of our rental properties - both furnished and unfurnished. We love meeting our guests from all over the world and creating a wonderful and memorable visit for them in Austin. And when we're vacationing, we always enjoy staying in vacation rentals and bed & breakfasts as well!

Amanda & Greg purchased this house in 2007

Why Amanda & Greg chose Austin

This home is so adorable and has so much charm, but still recently renovated. It's very close to UT and a short distance to downtown. You can walk many places and the neighborhood is very pleasant. The master bathroom soaker tub is the most relaxing room in the home, and the backyard is peaceful with the fish pond and covered patio.

What makes this house unique

We have personally managed all of our rental properties for 10 years and take pride in each home we own. Our goal is to make sure every guest has a wonderful experience staying with us!

The City of Austin requires that Vacation rentals obtain a license for legal operation. Legal operations will have their license number in their listing.

Charming Modernized Cottage, Peaceful Location!

  • 5 of 5
For an older home the inside has been modernized. Beautiful furnishings throughout the whole house. We went to Austin for a whole week so we could help our Longhorn daughter purchase furniture and move into her new place. We are a family of six and usually have to rent 2 or more hotel rooms. This place was perfect especially for a week. Not only did we save money but it was nice to come to a peaceful place after a long day. We usually stay in the downtown area and it can get very noisy. My husband praised me for finding such a wonderful place and the children felt more at ease.

Nice, cozy home!

  • 5 of 5
The house was a great fit for our group. There was a nice little back yard patio that we liked to sit and hang out. The pond outside was very neat!

Wonderful place to stay in Austin!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We stay in Austin often due to our children attending UT. We have rented many houses off of home away but this cottage outshines them all! It's location is convenient to everything. You can just hop on Mopac and get any where quickly. This house has comfortable beds, it is beautifully remodeled. I really enjoyed relaxing on the back porch swing and the beautiful pond with Koi fish. The house has everything you could need and was just so wonderful to come back to after the many outdoor activities we enjoyed in Austin. There are many fun and delicious restaurants in the quirky Allendale neighborhood. The owners were so kind to let us check out a little late so we could attend Church with our kids. Overall, it was a wonderful weekend celebrating the Fourth of July with family in a home with adequate space for all of us.
If you come to Austin, I recommend hiking the Barton Springs Greenbelt, paddle boarding on Lady Bird Lake, playing sand volleyball at Zilker and cooling off at Barton Springs!

Too good to be true, but it's not

Too good to be true, but it's not
  • 5 of 5
Greg was very nice to work with. Usually when something looks too good to be true it is, but this house was better than the pictures. The room with two beds in it would be better if it had a TV, but that's a real minor complaint. I wouldn't mention it but it's the only "negative" I could come up with!

Great owners and a great house

  • 5 of 5
Huge TV in the living room was a hit with the kids for family movie time, and now that's on our list for next Christmas. This home is an example of everything a home should be from the furnishings to the decor to the remodeling. Owners were very understanding and helpful when we couldn't get the dishwasher to work (switch on the wall)

Quiet serenity

  • 5 of 5
A friend stayed here on one of their trips, so we gave it a shot and weren't disappointed one bit! The back yard is just as quiet and peaceful as we expected. It has a nice cozy feel and everyone loved the porch swing. We only caught glimpses of the bigger fish in the pond, maybe it was too cold for them? But the kids still loved trying to find them. Defiitely a beautiful place to stay on vacation.
