The Treehouse was AWESOME!! My husband wants to build it on our property back home :) The location was great and the unit had everything we needed plus so many nice extras. I love not having to buy all the "extras" when on vaca. ie; detergents, shampoo, spices...

Would definitely come back.
Owner's Response: Sherry - Thank you so much for the great review! I would love to see photo's of your Treehouse once complete :) Come see us again!

Cozy and convenient, needs improved TV and WiFi

Townhome is easy to access at the end of a cul-de-sac, minutes from Zilker Park and less than ten minutes from some good Austin restaurants and downtown. No noise issues from the outside, although if you stay downstairs you can hear most movement upstairs...
The bathrooms and kitchen are nice for the price, as are the beds and living room couch. The only TV with actual cable is upstairs and the WiFi wasn't not working (which wasn't an issue for us since we weren't lounging much). We slept five adults comfortably, which was a nice change from shelling out $$ for 3 hotel rooms!
Owner's Response: Oh no! Our first 3 star review ever.
Kevin, I am so sorry you had problems accessing the internet. I wished you would have reached out so we could have walked you though getting on the network or contacted the provider to determine if there was an area outage.
I was at the property the day of your arrival and departure and the internet was working great, so it could have possibly been your settings.
As advertised in the vacation rental, the living room TV has cable television and the downstairs master bedroom has local channels and Netflix where you can stream hundreds movies, TV shows etc..
Our #1 goal is to provide every guest with the best vacation experience possible!

The property was beautiful and well taken care of. Everything that we were looking for we found (great location, affordable, clean). The pictures are exactly how the property is. The owners went above and beyond to make sure our stay was excellent and made sure anything we needed was available. We were close to downtown which made it easily accessible to all the restaurants and bars. I would highly recommend staying here!

AWESOME HOUSE! GREAT DEAL!

The Game Room is a home away from home! It was perfect for our Longhorn alumni reunion weekend for six adults sharing the comfy beds and another sleeping on the sofa. (The sofa beds are uncomfortable, so bring air beds, if needed.) The house comes with everything and anything you would need for a great, fun stay in ATX, well, except for your clothing.
The property is super clean! There's a nice outdoor, enclosed patio with a grill and a table with chairs. Washer & dryer. Full kitchen. WiFi. The AC is wonderful and actually keeps the house cool and fresh!
The house is near 183 & I-35, so it's an easy drive to North Austin, the U.T. Austin campus or downtown.
The property manager took great care of us, even surprised us with a treat!
We plan to stay here again soon!
