About Bob Easter

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 11 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. I am a Founding Member and Director of the Austin Rental Alliance, an organization of Vacation Rental Homes for the Austin Area. I am a licensed Texas Real Estate Broker and owner of Easter and Easter, Realtors

Bob Easter purchased this house in 1995

Why Bob Easter chose Austin

Austin has grown up around this quiet area and Neighborhood. The area has the most fantastic shopping just minutes from the front door. This home was built when it was considered almost out of town but now Austin has expanded and moved next door. The number of Superior and Fast Food restaurants will just amaze you, plus the selection of Organic Food Stores,Starbucks,Walmart which are just blocks away. And you can catch any major highway to get you to the Airport, UT or Downtown within 15 minutes (non rush hour drive time).

What makes this house unique

The minute you step into this home you know we have spent hours making it cozy and comfortable with quality furnishing, crown molding, new hardwoods, top of the line linens and bedding. The home is a smoke and pet free residence. We have spent additional money on energy features to make the home as energy efficient as possible. Additional care was given to the drapes with light and noise blocking panels plus drapes which also reduce noise and light. It's exceptionally clean and we work hard to make your stay perfect.

Convenient location and great rate

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the hospitality of the owner, high speed internet, cleanliness of the home, comfort of all the beds, convenience to both downtown and Lake Travis, and ease of parking our vehicle just outside the front door. Our family felt secure and comfortable here, which made for a very pleasant long vacation weekend in Austin. Thank you for everything, Mr. Easter!

Austin Rental 316184

  • 5 of 5

Our week's stay couldn't have been more perfect trying to prepare and setup our daughter's wedding. The house was immaculate and lacked nothing and the side garage was perfect to store the loaded lowboy until that Saturday. The owner went to the trouble to return a watch I had accidentally left behind. That says a lot!

We're trying to come up with reasons to justify renting weekends on a regular basis. Will definitely rent again in the future.

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for a week during UT graduation. There were six of us; grandparents (70’s) & parents( 50’s) . It was absolutely wonderful and exceeded our expectations. We were able to commune, eat together and to really act like a family. It had everything we needed, was extremely clean, very spacious and well located. Bob was very thoughtful and even left us cooking essentials. The 60’s diner for quick meals was well appreciated. Parking for everybody was a breeze. Everything was super clean and all linens and towels etc were top quality. I have stayed in many airbnb properties worldwide but this was our first stay in a VRBO property. If this is a precursor to the others we are looking forward to them. Simply put, from every perspective, value, location, cleanliness, ease of rental and just plain fun and satisfaction, this was absolutely wonderful. Don’t think about renting this property, just do it. You won’t find a better one.

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (five adults) stayed in this lovely home for Thanksgiving week. We needed to find a place close to my brother's home in North Austin. It took a while to find this place, and I am very glad we did! It was all we had hoped for and more. The house is very comfortable, quiet and extremely well-maintained. I read that the kitchen had everything one would need to cook, and it was indeed true. The location was excellent, close to the junction of two major highways that got us everywhere we wanted to go quickly. When Bob learned that we would be arriving after dark, he offered to bring us a "quick start" breakfast for the morning. He was very friendly, helpful and welcoming, and definitely went above and beyond. You could tell he really cared about the house and the people who stay there. We would definitely reserve this house again when we come into town if it is available.

PS I found the bed to be beyond comfortable, and my husband said he'd never felt softer towels.

Great home!

  • 5 of 5

The house is very comfortable and well maintained. Centrally located in the heart of Austin with plenty of parking. Our family of five spent two weeks here while we had construction done on our home and we appreciate all the amenities and comforts of home. The house is well maintained, very well kept, clean, and comfortable. I would stay here again!

Everything you need for a family stay in Austin!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here 2 summers in a row now and will be back next year. Bob has everything you need, no need to bring anything. The kitchen is fully stocked and fresh linens are ready! Our family of 4 was comfortable and enjoyed family meals daily. We were very centrally located for our needs as we work in North Austin and Central Austin. It is always very clean upon arrival. Definitely recommended!
