If you want something very close to downtown but also want the views and a peaceful setting that this is the place for you.

Top of North Cat Mountain and some of the most breath taking views in Texas. It the 1980's this house was the highest elevated (900 ft above sea level) in all of Austin. It only takes 10 minutes to get to downtown Austin. Easy.

Nothing short of excellent

  • 5 of 5
Our family had one of the best weekends of the decade at this house. We were able to find lots of food varieties from nearby and dine at many great restaurants (The Domain and Arboretum are very close). Everything was within 5-10 minutes of driving distance and the location served us very well (Downtown, Lake Austin, Arboretum, Domain). All the hot spots were hit easily. County Line BBQ on Bull Creek (just 2 minutes away) was great for the kids too. They loved feeding the turtles.

The house layout was perfect for us. For sleeping, we had grandparents stay in the smaller apartment downstairs while the boys stayed in the larger apartment with the poker table. The young ones slept upstairs in the crib or in the playroom which also has two very nice queen beds. The rest of the house has 6 very comfortable king beds which all 'felt' to be fairly expensive. The rest of use fought for the Master which has the most unbelievable views with a porch swing too! You can see Lake Austin and Pennyback Bridge just nearby. High-end double stacked ovens allowed us to show off our individual baking skills and prepare dinner without any concern for oven space while the boys showed their craft on the natural gas grille just off the kitchen. Its very easy to get caught in this house cooking all day! Also having two large refrigerators helped us to store leftovers and heat/serve the next day. The large Samsung washer and dryer was useful too. There is also another washer and dryer in the smaller apartment downstairs.

This house was made for family reunions (and treasure hunts in the enormous back yard with the kids). We would recommend this place hands down above any house we've ever stayed in. Ryan was wonderful to work with as well and always prompt to reply to any questions we had.

A heartfelt 5 star review

  • 5 of 5
Dear Ryan
I'd like to thank you for everything you did for my family during our short stay. We had recently lost a family member and needed to get away for a few days and your house and candid interest in our well being went far beyond what any 'tenant' would expect when renting a home. Upon arrival, Ryan had condolence flowers and a card waiting for us at the front steps and had a surprise chef come over to cook us dinner. It was above and beyond what we every expected. I could give everyone reading this review all the positive remarks about how wonderful the home is and how breath-taking the views are but I think the prior reviews have said enough. What needs to be reiterated is just how nice of a person he is to work with.

Great house Great view Great Owner

  • 5 of 5
Ryan accommodated us for a last minute stay at his place this past weekend. Our original plan was to have a few drinks, go out to dinner each night, and possibly go downtown. That didn't happen. The property was so inviting and cozy, we ended up spending the entirety of our trip inside the house. The balcony views are amazing, the building itself is very interesting, and there is plenty of room to relax or socialize. What really made this stay great was Ryan's attentiveness to the quality of our experience. The property was clean and well maintained, any needs or concerns we had were addressed immediately, and Ryan made every effort to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. A few house rules to be kept in mind for the consideration of his neighbors, but all reasonable requests that should be observed regardless of where you rent. If you are looking to stay somewhere you know you will be taken care of, put your trust in Ryan.

Ideal rental for families with small children and parents that like to cook!

  • 5 of 5
Ryan,
Thank you for hosting us at your wonderful home. Being a large family w small children this house suited our needs beyond expectation. Its so difficult to travel w young ones and the kids toys, swings, crib etc were a huge selling point for us as we did not want to carry all that stuff on the plane!
This is unlike any other rental we've found in Austin or anywhere, really. It's spotless and perfectly equipped with top of the line laundry, incredibly comfortable beds, great kitchen with every possible stainless steel appliance and tool, high dollar outdoor grille w breathtaking views, and plenty of parking in the garage.
We were worried that the house might be too cramped for a family of 16 (8 children) and we were pleasantly surprised how well this house maintained an open/social layout while also accomodating our grandparents in private (quiet) quarters by means of the two garage apartments (both with full kitchens and stoves!). The jacuzzi worked great and was a bit hit after the long days hiking around Bull Creek Greenbelt just below the property. And thank you for the excellent local restaurant recommendations (all within 5 minutes of the house). Musashino had sushi and was comparable to our favorites in CA. County Line BBQ (3min away) was a perfect family getaway w the best bread and honey butter I've ever had and the kids loved feeding crumbs to the turtles along the river. There is also Waterloo Icehouse (also 3min away) that has a great playground for kids and pretty good food for adults w a great beer selection.

All in, I'd recommend this house to anyone looking for a spacious home looking to bring family together or just looking for a relaxing getaway that is still close to downtown. We left feeling relaxed and closer together. Its nice to be able to go on vacation w the kids and leave feeling so chill .. bc all too often is not the case w little ones.
Oh, he has wonderful babysitters too!

Good afternoon Ryan,

Thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful home.When my family arrived at this home it was in impeccable condition. Ryan went the extra mile to insure we could check in early. And wow those views are spectacular! The drive to downtown only took us about ten minutes too which was an added bonus to have views plus close proximity to the action downtown. As the owner of a corporate housing firm, my expectations of lodging are way above par. This place surpassed them. There was so much room to spread out and be comfortable for all our family members with the kids on a different level from us. We plan to stay here on all our Austin trips!

Spectacular View, Big house with superb flexibility, Accommodating owner,

  • 5 of 5
This house worked perfectly for our birthday celebration. The balconies, with their spectacular views, allowed us to comfortably gather outside. The layout of the house provided wonderful flexibility to accommodate the varying needs of everyone, with plenty of spaces for people to retire to for peace and quiet even while others were socializing. We comfortably found beds for 13 adults, many of them unrelated. The owner is totally accomodating and made sure all our needs were met. This house is a wonderful way to enjoy Austin.
