About Carrie

I own and manage a vacation rental business with 12 properties in 3 cities-- Austin, Wimberley, and New Orleans. I love taking care of people as they do what's most important in life-- VACATION!

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.

What makes this house unique

5 minutes to SOCO, 10 minutes to airport, 5 min to downtown, Town Lake 5 minutes away.

Oasis in the City

  • 5 of 5

We were at this fabulous house for a week at the end of March 2015 escaping the Canadian winter. It was perfect in every way. Our adult children joined us for four nights and the house was perfectly set up for our family. The two en suites in the upstairs bedrooms and the two bathrooms on the main floor are excellent features. The outside sitting area was well used for cocktails and conversation! Noreen who cleans the property does a superb job; everything was spotless. Taxis downtown were reasonable. Carrie was very responsive with any questions we had. Can't think of anyplace else we could have been in Austin that would have come close to this property.

This was the most fantastic place I have ever stayed. I'm a patio person and loved all the options. It has beautiful view of Austin. I had so much fun! Very clean, very unique, and homey all at the same time. I have recommended this place to all my friends. The website is very professional and safe. Thank you for such a memorable weekend.

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!
