First, we want to say what a joy Carrie is to work with. She made the entire transaction as easy as possible and was available for any question that we had along the way. We are a group of mature ladies who have been gathering, annually, for 28 years and always look for a comfortable place where we can relax and visit, cook some good meals, play cards, and enjoy nature. This home has multiple comfortable living room areas, a large table for dining and card playing, big porches with comfy outdoor chairs and a fully stocked kitchen with great equipment, two full baths and a nice half bath. Those are just the basics that we enjoyed. Now, the fun stuff. We loved the color throughout and the art and the great vibe of the place. It is just plain fun. The hot tub was nice on a cold night and the frig and pantry come stocked with a few treats and surprises; and we left some of our own for the next guests to enjoy. It is that kind of place; well loved and well enjoyed. A true hidden gem that makes you feel like you are in the country, in the heart of the city. Ten minutes from the airport and ten minutes from downtown, with a great view from the upper deck of the sunset and the downtown skyline. We didn't use it, but there is nice outdoor seating area with a wet bar and a fire pit that would be great for a family gathering and a place to play the horseshoes that we saw. If you want a real taste of Austin and a comfortable home where you can unwind and get back to nature without having to trek into the woods, you won't find a more fun or better place. It's great! Thank you, Carrie. We plan to check out the other homes on your listing, as well!! You helped make our 28th year one of the best.

I booked this awesome house for a trip to Austin for my wife's birthday and couldn't have been any happier. The location was incredible. It is seriously 5-10 min from downtown and a $14 cab ride if you don't want to drive. Every cab driver we had said the same thing...." How did you find this place...there's nothing like this around here, all the properties have been bought up....I didn't even know this was here." Everything we needed was in the house and then some. It ended up just being my wife and I and we didn't even go in a couple rooms. This place would work great for a family or a couples trip. The property is sat up perfectly with the trees and bamboo hiding the house from the surrounding properties and making it have a very nice private feel. Talking to my wife I realized we didn't even turn the TV on the whole time we were there. We sat out on the deck overlooking the city and just took in the view. The hot tub was nice to wake up to and wind down in after a long day of walking ....or stumbling through Austin. lol. Carrie was a pleasure to speak to, and work with. She made the whole process a breeze and even sent some tips to make our experience in Austin even better. Thanks for allowing us the chance to stay in your home. Wouldn't have changed one thing about your place or our trip.

Friend Paradise!

This house was perfect for NYE in ATX with a group of friends. It is close enough to Downtown that cab rides were short and cheap, yet it was "off the beaten path" tucked away so it felt like we were deeper in the woods away from the hustle and bustle. There is every type of store nearby for any last minute needs. The fire pit out front became our favorite place after we got home from the bars each night. There was so much space in each room, and we all felt cozy and comfortable! It is perfect for friend getaways, bachelerotte/bachelor parties, or really anything with a group. Carrie was awesome and left us with a list of 100 things to do in ATX so with some free time we went and saw the Stevie Ray Vaughan statue near Lady Bird Lake as well as walked the stairwell up to Mount Bonnell which had beautiful views. She had the house stocked with any necessity you could think of! Such a charming place with neat decorations and a true Austin, Texas vibe. If we ever need to rent a place here again, we are going with this one!

My friends and I recently had the privilege of staying here for a New Year's retreat to Austin...and Carrie's home was perfect! Close to downtown Austin, this was the perfect spot for a relaxing and fun time. The house has a great vibe, and the decor gives you that Austin experience for which you were probably looking. There is a place to hang outside and build a fire if the weather is cool at night, plus a hot tub. We loved our time here, and felt comfortable the moment we walked in! I would definitely stay at this house again in the future!
