Our passion is to provide an outstanding property where our guests will continue to come back year after year. We have a large family with 10 grandchildren and more to come so having a home large enough for families to be able to come to Austin and share a home with friends is important for us.

We are serious organic gardeners so our home and landscape is never treated with pesticides.

This property while attached to our home is completely separate. You will be impressed with the wonderful decor and amenities.

Bob Easter purchased this house in 2006

We would live no place else in Austin. Some homes in the area have stunning views, others offer level tree lined streets. Tucked away from the City noise and traffic, yet minutes away from everything.

The Northwest Hills area is located in the heart of Austin, yet the neighborhood offers a quiet place to retreat. Austin's finest major shopping centers such as the Domain and Arboretum are just minutes up the road. Yet, local shopping offers everything you need and you never have to get onto any major highway. Grocery stores, post office, UPS, Banks, Pharmacies, restaurants, cleaners and Starbucks are just blocks away

A GREAT TIME (DESPITE UNSEASONABLE WEATHER)

  • 5 of 5
Carolyn & Bob did everything they could to make our Feb/Mar visit pleasant, although the weather was abnormally cold and rainy. The neighborhood is nice, with lots of walkers. There was a feeling of privacy, and our young grand daughter's adventurous activities seemed to be graciously accepted. The 2 bedroom arrangement suited us well. We hope to return for a stay again.

LOVELY SPACE, PERFECT FOR OUR FAMILY OF 4, INCLUDING 1 WHEELCHAIR USER

  • 5 of 5
Don’t miss out on this lovely, custom-built home. The pictures don’t quite do it justice. We stayed over Christmas 2013, perfectly content. The home was ideal for our family of 4, one of whom is a wheelchair user. This is universal design at its finest – you don’t need to be a wheelchair user to appreciate the generous hallways, spacious shower, and other features that are naturally integrated into this very appealing space, but these features certainly worked exceptionally well for us. The home is well-maintained, very nicely appointed and clean, located in a lovely suburban neighborhood. It felt like our private oasis – one from which it was a breeze to get wherever we wanted to go. Owners Bob and Carolyn are absolutely delightful; we so enjoyed meeting them. If we return to Austin, we’ll be back with Bob and Carolyn at Venado Drive!

Owner's Response: What a joy it was to have your family with us for Christmas. We loved meeting everyone and Carolyn and I are so appreciative of the wonderful honey and cookies. We are so happy to know how the home met your needs. We want all of our travelers to feel welcome. Please do come again.

FANTASTIC ACCOMMODATION FOR MY FAMILY DURING OUR HOME RENOVATION

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed in the property during a renovation of our Austin home. I can tell you that the home owners went above and beyond in accommodating my family during what was already a stressful time. The property is stunning and my kids were thrilled with the enormous back yard and the playtime afforded. The accommodations are immaculately maintained and it was fantastic to have a garage during our stay. The neighborhood and the neighbors are great and my kids got a daily kick out of watching the deer roaming the neighborhood yards. Our renovation, not surprisingly, took longer than anticipated and the owners accommodated us at every turn. When we had to leave the property for a few days due to a previous booking, we were even able to stay in another, nearby property that Bob owned for a few days. The experience couldn't have been any smoother. I'd highly recommend this property for both the place itself as well as its owners. Both are five star.

Owner's Response: Brian,
We loved seeing you and your wife playing with your children in our backyard. Our five year old grandson also enjoyed playing with your children when he was over for a visit. We so enjoyed being able to help during a remodeling project that would not end. A lovely family.

WE CAME TO AUSTIN TO VISIT OUR SISTER

  • 5 of 5
This place and the owners, made us feel welcome and exceeded our expectations! The accommodations are well appointed & designed for any family needing a two bedroom, 2 bath vacation home. We are seniors, it met our particular needs better than any vacation home we have ever stayed in. The twin beds in the suite are marvelous! The kitchen offers EVERY dish, tableware or cooking utensil you will need! The courtyard and atrium are a beautiful place to enjoy the beautifully landscaped yards! A cold front came through while we were in Austin, which added to our enjoyment!

Owner's Response: What a wonderful delight to have you for the three months. Quiet as a mouse and yet fun to be around. You are right one of the reasons our travelers love the area is how quiet it is and how close the stores are to our home. We want you to come back anytime. Thanks for leaving the home in such clean condition. We look forward to your next visit.

AN AMAZING PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
I was coming to Austin for work with a client/friend and we decided to come in a few days early. We couldn’t have stayed at a better place. My friend had never stayed at a VRBO rental before and she absolutely loved it. Bob was there to greet us when we arrived and walked us through the amazing house we rented. There was plenty of space, clean, the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. It was in a beautiful quit neighborhood, you really felt like you were at home. I will defiantly stay here when I return to Austin.
