We had a wonderful time. More than once, Mom said it was the best birthday ever. Thank you for lending us the use of your lovely home. We love the West Lynn area and were happy to be within walking distance of some of our favorite spots.

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned from a wonderful stay in Austin! There were 8 adults and we found Debb's unique house perfect for us. We were very comfortable and loved all the eclectic art. The home provides everything to make you feel at home. We also loved the beautiful yard, front and back! We ended every evening on the front porch, enjoying the serenity of the peaceful community. We hit all the must do's of Austin so greatly appreciated the comfortable and inviting beds. Debb is very friendly and accommodating, and truly wants people to enjoy their stay in her wonderful home. I would highly recommend this as a terrific place to stay!

Beautiful house, gorgeous neighborhood, amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Debb's house! The property itself is in fantastic condition - beautiful kitchen, comfortable living room, four private bedrooms, and a gorgeous backyard. The street itself is also wonderful - it is a quiet, tree-lined street with lots of quaint homes and unique vegetation. Best of all, the house is a short walk from some great restaurants, bars, and the beautiful biking/running trail along the Colorado River!

Debb was a great host - she patiently waited for us to arrive after our flights arrived late, she provided lots of great recommendations for fun activities, and she was readily available to answer our questions. Can't ask for more than that!

In short, the house was exactly what we were looking for!!!

Girlfriends Road Trip-Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

One of the 4 parties found this rental. Excellent choice as the house was exactly what we needed. Spacious - loved the layout, bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. Back porch was inviting - kitchen was clean and everything we needed - we found. Owner was very helpful and gracious when we arrived.

We didn't have a car and walked everywhere! That was ok for the most part. Taxi service was available.

Thank you for a fun week in a safe neighborhood.

charming house in a good location

  • 5 of 5

The house is charming and decorated thoughtfully. The yard, particularly the backyard space is great. There is covered parking. The neighborhood is fun and the chance to walk downtown and avoid the austin traffic and parking is great. I would definitely rent it again.

It personified our idea of a funky Austin house

  • 5 of 5

The house was comfortable and well equipped. Beds were comfortable; kitchen was clean; porch and back yard were inviting and the two bathrooms were clean and well furnished with towels. There wasn't much of a living room, but we spent our time around the funky purple dining room table or on the porch.

We couldn't find a hide-a-bed, but there was a comfortable foam pad we used. Great place to stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you! I am pleased you enjoyed my Austintacious home! : ) There are 5 beds available. I have the fold out 8" foam mattress that can be put on the floor. It is typically put in the office downstairs. There are two living areas that open to each other. They also open to the dining room and downstairs office area. Sometimes people will bring in a couple of dining chairs if they want extra seating in the main living area. There is a couch, massage chair and overstuffed chair in the main living area. Glad you enjoyed my purple dining table and outdoor porches! I hope to see you again soon. : )
