JUST LIKE HOME!

  • 5 of 5
A wonderful location, close to everything! The home itself was spacious and comfortable! A very quiet neighborhood provided for a great "home base". There was so much to do in Austin that we were out and about a lot, this was a wonderful place to come back to for a relaxing evening Just a note to parents of young children, it is necessary to climb a stair case to access the kitchen and living room. We had a great stay!

AWESOME VACATION RENTAL!

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing time at this vacation rental. Sally was accommodating to all of our requests and went out of our her way to make sure we had a good experience. The rental was clean and well decorated. The location was perfect for us since it was close to downtown and zilker park. The rental was completely stocked with everything our family needed to stay there for several days ie shampoo, trash bags, laundry detergent, dish washing soap. When we arrived, the fridge had complimentary water, soda, and beer waiting for us in the refrigerator which was a nice touch. I would highly recommend this location!

AUSTIN, TX TREEHOUSE VACATION RENTAL ROOMY AND FUN

  • 4 of 5
We had a great stay and Sally was there very quickly (first thing in a.m. day after we arrived) to fix a couple of issues. Great location, roomy and fun.

Couple of recommendations about the showers. Might want to consider a grab bar and/or non slip mat of some sort for both showers. Tile in them can be slippery.

Thanks for the welcome gift (my mom drank it). Love Austin and I even inquired of Sally before we left about next year.

Thanks so much. It is pricey, but that entire area is, as we found in looking at some places to rent if we decided to move there. I see why, many people moving to the area so prices can be driven up. Beautiful Zilker park, etc. I even got to see the infamous "naked bicycler man".

FABULOUS!

  • 5 of 5
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.

COZY AND CONVENIENT, NEEDS IMPROVED TV AND WIFI

  • 3 of 5
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!
