About Chris

I grew up in NW Indiana outside of Chicago but I am hoping to spend a lot more time in Austin. I recently changed my job situation and this will definitely be happening.

Chris purchased this house in 2010

Why Chris chose Austin

The location is perfect! We are close enough to walk, yet far enough that parking isn't a problem due to the traffic visiting Congress Avenue.

What makes this house unique

This is our home that we rent when not there. You get to enjoy the amenities that we put in for us.

Perfect amount of space for two couples. The location of the property couldn't have been better. 3 blocks walking distance to South Congress street. 20 minute ride to the airport. Used UBER extensively in this neighborhood and never had an issue getting a ride within 10 mins. Owner was super accommodating and very easy to reach if we had an issue. Would HIGHLY recommend this property!

Lovely, Clean and Great Location!

  • 5 of 5
We have booked this house every year for the past four years for our week long vacation with our kids. We used to live in Austin and know that this house is a gem and in such a great location. We use Stacey Pool almost every day, even in April. You can walk there or it's a short drive. We walk the green belt along the creek, we walk to South Congress to hit Gueros, Continental Club or Amy's Ice Creams. The house is in great condition, clean and neat, kitchen is well stocked, with everything you could need to cook meals. It also has a nice deck for relaxing at the end of the day and a flat grassy yard for the kids to play. Our girls love it so much, they ask when we are going back to our "Annie Cottage." I hope it's available every year we come!

South Congress Oasis!

  • 5 of 5
Loved our stay in this cute, clean and well updated home in Austin! Great location in SoCo within walking distance to many shops and restaurants! It was perfect for our girls getaway and the property is very dog friendly. Our 2 Mini Aussies had a terrific time enjoying the beautiful back yard! The house has every amenity and MORE that you could possibly think of to make your stay homey and comfortable. We looked forward to having coffee and breakfast outside every morning. We even grilled one night. Chris was very attentive to all my communications and any questions that I had. We really enjoyed every minute at the house and can’t wait to stay here again if he’ll have us!

Great house and location!

  • 5 of 5
This house was exactly as described and we were very comfortable. The house was well-appointed, clean and well-maintained. The kitchen, living room and dining room are quite spacious. The back yard, deck, and gas grill were perfect for a family gathering and cook-out. And what a great location! So close to all the South Congress shops and eateries. The owner was very responsive and helpful. I would definitely rent this house again, and highly recommend it to others. This was my first time renting a vacation house like this, and I am very pleased it was such a positive experience. Thank you!
