Carrie purchased this house in 2009

Why Carrie chose Austin

Unique & Special-- 1 acre, view of downtown, lots of privacy-bamboo to hide neighbors, 5 min to downtown, hot tub. I HAD to have this place as soon as I saw it. This is my personal 2nd home that I rent out occasionally.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

As a surprise Valentine's Day/Birthday celebration for my husband I rented this property & could not have been more pleased with my selection!! Originally had planned to spend the weekend at a nice hotel downtown, but am SO happy I decided to go this route! House is incredibly cozy..lots of great space to hang out with friends! The kitchen nook was our 2nd favorite cozy spot to drink coffee & read (next to the 2nd story balcony...amazing views of the city at night!!) TONS of space for a larger crowd (we had another couple with us on Friday) Beds & linens are AMAZING (SO important to me) House is spotless & decorated in a really fun/quirky "Austin" style. Owner could not have been sweeter or more helpful. Super close to all major Austin hot spots & yet serene & private (SO rare in Austin) We will definitely be back!

Country in the City

  • 5 of 5

My beau and I stayed at this house because it is convenient, spacious, has a balcony, and we could take our dog with us over Christmas. We we expecting a little quirkiness based on other reviews, and the house did not disappoint. The decor is laid-back and fun. The beds and furniture are super comfy. The outside has a grill, a huge in-ground firepit, an outdoor deck with a sink (in middle of yard), and a hot tub. Because the house sits on a hill, the view of the Austin skyline from the upper balcony is pretty spectacular. We happen to like Austin weird especially when it's fun. On Christmas Eve we were driving to see friends and a neighbor from the same street was on a huge horse walking down the road. He was dressed as Santa. We stopped and took his picture...when asked where he was going, he declared he was off to the Capitol. Totally sober. Only in Austin. We had a great time and would happily return. The owner responded immediately when the downstairs hot water heater went out. We salute her for dealing with that during the holidays. The place is fun, book it!

Austin Getaway

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at downtown view during the middle is September for a long weekend getaway. Overall I recommend this property. The emails and phone calls I had setting up the rental were easy. Carrie and Heather were very attentive and nice to work with.

The location was exactly what I wanted. It is a short drive to pretty much everything - Soho, Bartlett Springs, downtown, airport... But close enough! It was secluded, which is what I wanted. The view of the Austin Skyline was amazing. I would sit out on the porch or balcony every morning and evening (when it wasn't raining) to enjoy the quiet and the view. The hot tub was nice, perfect for sitting in when it was raining outside (it isn't covered overhead, but still nice). The memory foam bed was comfortable. I didn't use the other bedrooms, or loft. The master bath was nice. The shower is unique, a little bigger than a normal shower area, and very nice. The kitchen was easy to cook in. The couches were comfortable. Internet was easy to get on. I watched TV but didn't watch any DVDs. The remotes were a little tricky to figure out at first. The decor is very eclectic - which is what Austin is all about!

The neighbors cat(s) do hang around the property, but I absolutely loved this. One of them did not come close, but the other was very loving and it was nice to have a companion. I think they would stay afar if you didn't encourage them, just in case you have allergies or don't like cats.

It is a house out close to nature, so you have to expect bugs. As long as you kept the porch lights off, it wasn't too bothersome. I also heard frogs or toads throughout the day, but didn't go searching for them.

There is a big grocery store a block away (via car). I cooked my own breakfast, but enjoyed the wondeful restaurants Austin offers for other meals.

This was a nice experience, far enough away for peace and quiet, yet close enough to join the hustle and bustle of the city easily.

Recently took my family on a lil getaway to end summer in Austin!! Stayed here and it was great!!! We loved the house and it was a country setting yet we were 5 mins away from everything!!

Trust me, the pictures do not do justice for the view at this place. Carrie was a pleasure to work with. Will definitely be staying there every time I'm in Austin. Super close to congress.
