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!

Great house; great location!

  • 5 of 5
This property is fantastic: clean, spacious, and located in a quiet neighborhood just a 5 minute walk from the bustle of S. Congress. The back deck provided the perfect spot to unwind after hectic SXSW days, and the bikes were a godsend. Highly recommended!

Great Location + Great House = Great Time!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time staying at this house! It is totally updated inside, has a great back porch, and has everything you could need - corkscrew! bikes! - as well as a great location just off South Congress. I walked to the nearby Magnolia Cafe both mornings of our stay for breakfast. We had great weather, and even walked to 6th Street for dinner - less than 2 miles from the house, and definitely a great walk to check out Soco shops, Bat Bridge, and great Austin landscape heading into downtown. We - including our dogs - will definitely stay here again the next time we need a house in Austin!

Perfect Christmas in Austin

  • 5 of 5
We were lucky enough to snag this beautifully serene house for our week long Christmas vacation in Austin. To say that the pictures do not do it justice is an understatement! Everything you could possibly need is provided and of good quality. The house is surprisingly spacious and the backyard and deck wonderfully comfortable. Even though Austin is a great "foody" city, we did cook in Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and the kitchen was fully equipped. Fabulous location, charming neighborhood, walking distance to everything wonderful that Austin has to offer. Chris was great to work with--extremely fast in his replies to any and all inquiries we had. We travel with a large dog and many times houses that we rent because of the dog are less than desirable in terms of cleanliness or amenities. That was certainly NOT the case with this lovely home. Everything was spotlessly clean, there was a very thoughtful baby gate to keep him in the back end of the house on the rare occasion when we went out without him. He loved exploring Stacy Park--just around the corner--but was most content curled up on the deck with us in the evenings. We have stayed in a number of places in Austin now that our son lives here and this was without a doubt our favorite. I just hope that we'll be able to reserve it again in time for next Christmas!
