Great property for a group

  • 5 of 5

This house is great for a group traveling on business. We had 6 adults in Austin for SXSW and the house worked really well for us. The layout allows for individual privacy and alone time while also providing comfortable gathering places for all of us to be together.

Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Spacious and Beautifully designed home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautifully designed and very spacious to accommodate large groups or multiple families! Outdoor space is just as nice as indoor setting. Centrally located to great eating spots and 6th street that you can easily Uber to for around $15. But it also offers a gourmet kitchen for cooking if your prefer to cook and enjoy the wines from Fredericksburg, which is only 1.5 hours away. We had a group of 13 ladies for a bridal shower weekend and had a great celebration! Will certainly rent the Edgemont home again for a future stay!

The property was amazing & in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Overall the property looked exactly like it does in the pictures. More than enough room to hang out, have some privacy, or enjoy a nice dip into the pool. We rented this property to have an off-site managers meeting and will be recommending it to other divisions in the company. Another bonus was that the owner was very easy to work with!

What a cool house!!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Kelle was so sweet. Anytime we had a question, she always picked up the phone or answered our emails. She was super accommodating and went out of her way to make our stay exceptional. We told her that we were celebrating our weekend wedding there with family from out of town and so she left a gift for us waiting in the kitchen. The house had everything we needed and definitely one of the coolest we've ever seen. I would highly recommend this house to anyone!

Family reunion and surprise party.

  • 5 of 5

WOW! We knew this home was beautiful from the photos, but its even more impressive in person. We had a family reunion here for my father's 70th birthday with ages 7 to 70. There were plenty of areas for relaxing, a huge media room stocked with movies, games and craft supplies for the kids, and a large well stocked kitchen. We hired a private chef to come cook a special dinner for the surprise party. There was easily seating for 14 around the tables. My art history professor sister in law loved the art collection. I originally hadn't wanted to be this far from down town (only 5-10 minutes by car) but were able to hike over to Mount Bonnell (0.8 miles) and could easily zip downtown by car. This place was so relaxing and nice, we didn't really want to go anywhere else. This is the best rental experience we have had with Homeaway/VRBO and we use it frequently.

Spacious, comfortable, relaxing environment

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place. We did not want to leave and can hardly wait to return. The home was close enough to downtown Austin to enjoy the nightlife, shopping and sightseeing but also a welcome escape. The neighborhood was beautiful and upscale - inviting you to live in Austin. The home was clean, comfortable and exactly as described. The theater room was perfect for relaxing and watching movies with lots of movies provided by the owners. There were directions on how to navigate the city, where to eat, what sorts of activities were available, We would definitely recommend to anyone who is visiting Austin and required a large space with multiple bedrooms..
