We've done VRBO homes before and walked into humid, old beat up utensils, ovens that don't work and refrigerators that have been turned off. Carlos' house left us amazed at all he provides and at the excellent condition of the entire house/grounds. We traveled with grandparents, our 2 daughters (6&8), and sister & brother-in-law and their 2 kids (5&7). We all had more than enough space and the kids had plenty to do. The proximity of zilker park made short trips for the kids to get out very easy. Otherwise we had a blast in the pool,patio, work-out room,having extended family over for a BBQ. Parking is a fun experience too as I drive an avalanche, but I got much better at it. Be sure to go in the side entrance. Carlos came by and was very nice easy going guy. The pool is excellent my 6 yr. old was terrified of water on her own and within day 2 she was swimming up to me! Pool is perfect size for little ones, not too deep not too big and it's great for adults to lounge around in. Outside deck is perfect, lots of space/seating and 2 big umbrellas. Outside bathroom worked perfectly for the kids to rush over from the pool, only wish the shower worked to make it even better. Kitchen was heaven and along with the African Teak table made for a perfect evening hang out for the adults. Kitchen had very nice utensils and cookware so no need to bring any at all. Needed some more lights for the shuffle board but kids liked it regardless. House has 3 levels and each level has a walkway to the outside which was really cool. TV's and DVD players all worked great, stereo system was really good too. Had some trouble figuring out the pool controls but we eventually got it. Pictures don't do justice at all, lots of space, great decorating and so much to do that kids don't even mess with the decor. Hula hut is right down the road and another great place to hang out. We brought 2 air mattresses and had room for them in each bedroom, in fact both also fit together on the master bedroom floor.Views all around the house and from each BR are outstanding and just simply force you to relax. Thanks Carlos and you will definitely hear form us again!
