I moved to Austin in 1995 and immediately fell in love with this town. I had no doubt that this is where I would settle once I graduated from UT. We are a family of 5 and decided to rent this great house to Austin's finest visitors. I love interacting with travelers and try to accommodate any individual needs you may have. If you need tips on anything in Austin, please don't hesitate to ask.

Denny Young purchased this house in 2003

Homes that were built in the 1920's are unique. This property is in GREAT shape and just a few cosmetic touch-ups restored its beauty and preserved its essence. The house is very cozy with a solid construction.

This house has all the modern amenities necessary for comfort. Located on a quiet block, near a park and just walking distance to nearby restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores and more. Centrally located, a short bike ride or super fast car ride to downtown. The house is cozy and warm, great to just lounge around and relax. It has a great front porch, to check out the neighborhood, and a great back yard for grilling and hanging out.

Perfect UT mom spot

  • 5 of 5
Very clean and inviting. Cold filtered water in the fridge hit the spot after moving my daughter into her dorm at UT. Bed super comfy and towels soft and thick. Perfect University location. I could get anywhere in minutes. I hope to stay here again. Not a big drinker, but bottle of Texas wine a very kind gesture!

Historic house with Asian-inspired decoration

  • 4 of 5
My boyfriend and I came in from Dallas for a Valentine's Day weekend and to celebrate a friend's engagement.

The property was clean and well-maintained, but there were a few minor frustrations along the way: it was around 7P when we arrived, but no lights were on and we had a hard time seeing the lock to get in and find the light switches for inside; would have liked a one-sheet describing the location of the disposal switch (under the sink) and how to work the speaker system.

The owner/manager was slower than expected to respond, as we called at 1P and didn't get a return call until 6P the day of our arrival. We were told to text any more questions (we texted about the speaker system & Christmas lights in the backyard), which seemed to get a faster response.

Overall, we thought the neighborhood was quiet, close to small stores, restaurants, bars and UT. The owner also left us a bottle of local wine from Becker, which we enjoyed.

Owner's Response: The renter called prior to check in to request a late check out on Sunday; however, due to an emergency situation at work I was not available to immediately return her call. The issue was in regards to check out time in which we agreed to allow them to check out at their leisure since we did not have anyone checking in on the day of their departure. We have included an alternate phone number on the site in case guests would prefer to speak to someone rather than text if a similar situation arises. We have also included the location of the disposal switch and information about the receiver for the speakers in the welcome note to remedy the confusion for future guests. Lastly, we confirmed the motion light is working on the front porch. We appreciate the opportunity to continue to improve the experience for our guests.

Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5
We decided to stay at this home based on all the positive reviews and do not regret our decision. First off, I was impressed with the bottle of wine that was left for us on the table. That was a very nice touch. It's a lovely, comfortable home in a great neighborhood. It's close to everything we wanted to see and do. The caretakers/owners were very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.

perfect venue for an open house

  • 5 of 5
Loved loved loved this home. I hosted a graduation celebration here and got SO many compliments on the space. There were a lot of personal touches as well. I could tell that the owners took the time to make my stay comfortable. The location is FABULOUS, a short walk from UT, and the home was beautiful inside and out. Highly recommended for a couple or small group (as there is only one bathroom) and excellent venue to host a party!

Fantastic home, great amenities and design.

  • 5 of 5
This home is very Austin, in a great neighborhood in north campus just by the university. Lots of detail has gone into the furnishings without making you feel like you are intruding in someone's house. Owner was very accessible for the few questions we had. Value on a weekend in Austin when the hotel prices go through the roof cant be beat, we'll always look here first when we come to Austin again!

Wish I could live here!

  • 5 of 5
The property is LOVELY. It's in a great neighborhood, with wonderful neighbors, and I loved the fact that I could walk to the co-op, liquor store, and restaurants. Denny was a pleasure to work with, and she really made everything quite easy and stress-free.

I would highly recommend this home if you are looking to escape to Austin. I know that I will certainly be renting again for my future trips!
