We had a lovely stay in Academy Drive. Our party was made of 3 adults and one toddler and the house was the perfect size and layout for this. The master bedroom is large enough to accommodate an energetic 3-year old and everything had been thought through. We enjoyed drinking our welcome bottle of wine and found the information pack, leaflets and maps very useful. The location is obviously fantastic, being so central. Our timetables (and the weather!) unfortunately did not allow us to make use of the decked area outside but we’re hoping we can do so if we have the pleasure to come back next year. My daughter said: “I really really love this lovely house” and we adults could not agree more! A great house, full of character, in a great location.

Excellent location, beautiful home, amazing owner

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely loved staying here. Went with my boyfriend for my birthday and couldn't have chosen a better place. The location is perfect - walking distance to both South Congress and Downtown. It's about 10 mins to SoCo and 15 to downtown. It is rather hilly, so riding bikes can be a bit of a challenge, but that's how we got around and it was a great way to see Austin. The location is beautiful with lots of trees and well maintained homes. It felt very safe. The house looks exactly as shown in the pictures. It's clean, well maintained and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Sandy was great and very helpful and even shipped my clothing back to me that I absentmindedly forgot. Guess I didn't want to leave!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5
What a great house and even better location! It is close to everything fun to do in Austin. We had a car but used cabs a lot of the weekend and it was perfect. Very close to the town lake running path! The house was very clean and well kept. It had everything we needed. The owner was easy to get ahold of for quick questions and great to work with. Highly recommend this property!

Great location, wonderful home.

  • 5 of 5
We had a marvelous time in Austin, much of it had to do with our choice of accommodation.The house is very comfortable, in a beautiful neighborhood with parks close by. Lazy mornings drinking coffee and reading on the back deck, a short walk to great restaurants and an easy stroll home after shutting down the Continental Club. Couldn't have asked for more.
Would highly recommend this home for your Austin vacation.

Great Location and Great House!

  • 5 of 5
This house was perfect! We had a friend’s weekend in Austin and could not have asked for anything better! Sandy takes great pride in this charming house near South Congress and you can’t help, but feel like you are at home the moment you walk in. The house was clean, cozy and well stocked with everything you need (and then some!). We were able to walk to bars, restaurants, and Town Lake Trail. We took a taxi down to 6th street one night and it was under $10. You could not ask for a better location! It was awesome! I highly recommend this house for anyone looking for a fun weekend in Austin and likes the comforts of home.

Perfect home base for a relaxing family vacation

  • 5 of 5
It was such a pleasure to stay in this clean, comfortable home within easy walking distance of South Congress' many delicious restaurants and funky shops, as well as Lady Bird Lake and its beautiful jogging trail. We had four adults and one baby, and Sandy was able to provide a pack'n'play and high chair for the baby. Sandy was a great host -- very accommodating with our late arrival time and was easy to communicate with before, during, and after our stay. The home is in a lovely historic neighborhood and we enjoyed taking long walks each morning, always ending up at Jo's on South Congress for some coffee and treats. The kitchen was well-supplied with everything we needed to cook meals at home, and there was plenty of tourist information (books with restaurant reviews, recommended attractions, etc). Wifi worked perfectly. This was our first VRBO and we are sold! So much easier to travel with a baby when you have a whole house to spread out in -- and laundry facilities too. Austin is a wonderful place to spend a week, and this was the perfect home base from which to explore it!
