Great location, owner cares!

  • 5 of 5

Location and house were as described. Owner was very attentive and quick to respond. He thoroughly seemed to care that everything was set up for our group and also wanted to make sure we enjoyed our stay in Austin. He offered many suggestions around his property and Austin. I would recommend staying at the location and will def be staying here when I return to Austin.

great house, nice location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this house with a group of 7 girls for a bachelorette party. It was the perfect size for us; we all had plenty of room. We were only a 10 minute cab ride from most of the places we visited during our stay. Most importantly, the homeowner was easy to reach and was quick to respond to any questions we had. I would definitely recommend staying at this house for a trip to Austin.

Owner's Response: Thank you Alex for the great review. I loved having y'all here. I hear Austin is the number one bachelorette party location in the United States. Thank you for picking my place. While you were here I was at a wonderful VRBO south of Tampa. Thank you ever so much for leaving the place so neat and tidy and drying all the towels. You didn't have to do that, you were on vacation. But it really was kind of you. Come back anytime. Kirk
