About Tracey Anderson

We've lived in Austin since 1993 and have loved every minute of it. We enjoy the lakes, the trails & the entertainment Austin has to offer year-round. Thad is a Custom Home Builder and Real Estate Investor; while Tracey is in the Technology Industry and does Interior Design in her spare time.

Tracey Anderson purchased this house in 2001

Why Tracey Anderson chose Austin

The fun, modern eclectic neighborhood so close to downtown, personifies Austin's tagline, 'KEEP AUSTIN WEIRD'. We love the area and all the neighbors.

What makes this house unique

This HOME is located in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Austin you will enjoy everything our city has to offer with all of the conveniences that make any vacation translate into wonderful memories. The proximity to activities, entertainment and restaurants while offering a private, peaceful, less expensive alternative to a hotel room makes this property so attractive. Generous parking both in front and in back of the home is such a bonus over other Downtown /SoCo homes that have little to no parking options.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Does not meet expectations

  • 2 of 5
This homeowner pays a rebate to its renters to write flattering reviews. I decided to forgo the financial incentive and give you an honest review.

The home is quite pretty, updated and has plenty of room. It is about 1 mile south of the river and close to downtown with many amenities close by including restaurants, bars, etc. The home is on a very busy street and based on the street layout a bit challenging to get in and out of the driveway. It is also very close to a very active railroad line which adds noise to the home.

The homes items inside are pretty worn out and need some updating including worn out towels, pillows, kitchen items (the few that are there), etc. The kitchen has very little in it for cooking at home so though it looks pretty it is not functional for cooking at home. When I stayed there was 1 mixing bowl, no utensils for cooking, chipped dishes, no pot holders, etc. All bedrooms have street noise making it tough to sleep at night, especially with the speed with which cars race up and down this street late at night. The home could also be better cleaned, very dusty decorations and incredibly dirty floors, the floor mats in the bathrooms looked like they had not been cleaned in quite a while as well as grime around the bath faucets.

Wedding Attendance

  • 4 of 5
This house was clean and comfortable - the beds were appropriate for three couples as well as a toddler. Its greatest asset is its location, close to downtown and nearby restaurants and clubs on both Lamar and Congress. We were in Austin from Mesa, Arizona to attend our daughter's wedding in Dripping Springs. The only activity in which we participated other than wedding events was a tour of the Texas capitol - amazing! Yes, we would consider staying there again.

Wonderful, comfortable, well equipped and spacious

  • 5 of 5
This Bungalow is very clean, well equipped, located in the perfect area of Austin. Within minutes from downtown Austin and plenty of wonderful places to dine and shop. Less than 15 minutes from the airport. The Owners are the greatest. We cooked out on the grill one evening. They fully communicate with you for any concerns or problems that you may have. Attempt to take care of those concerns in a reasonable amount of time. The only concerns we had was not under there control. It had to do with the At&t tv service that kept going out. Just kept losing signal. That happens everywhere. Thad was actually gonna set a the cable service to come in but I know, from my own service, those appointments can be weeks out. we rented movies from redbox and watched them using the dvd player that Tracey and Thad has in the unit. My mom really enjoy herself, however she is a clean up freak. So we called her Hilda Mae and told her that we would let the owners know that if they needed a maid we would give her a good reference. The Neighbors were also friendly. I would definitely stay at this Bungalow again if I went to Austin Texas.

Gorgeous Property in Great Location

  • 5 of 5
Great property in a great location. We were about an $8 cab ride to downtown and a $10 cab ride to Barton Springs. We headed to Austin for the first time for a bachelorette party and we couldn't be happier. The house was spectacular and clean. So many amenities that were not expecting and the owners gave us so much information about activities, attractions and restaurants in the area. We would definitely head back to Austin and this house.
