great house.

Deborah and her house were both amazing. I will be staying here again. Overall great experience!

  • 5 of 5

Deborah was great from the start. I was skeptical about booking since it was my first time through the app, but she was very timely and efficient with everything. There was bad weather the week before our trip and she was in contact with me letting me know how things were and if the house was fine etc! That was reassuring and put us at peace. I hit traffic coming into Austin and ended up being rather late for our agreed upon check in time and was very stressed on how this would work or if it would be an issue. But Deborah met my friend who flew in earlier than me and did the walk through with her instead which was more than amazing. Also my dog sitter canceled the day before the trip and she was fine with me bringing my pup literally last minute. No words to express the gratitude I've got for that :) The house is so cute and well put together in an eclectic bohemian chic way that fit my group perfectly. The back yard is a sanctuary of serenity! We enjoyed the front porch as well. Our favorite thing may have been the stair case that changed colors constantly. Gave it a great vibe. We loved everything about this house and Deborah. Highly recommend and must say this was my best rental experience I've had through any company. Lots of love for De'Peacock 🖤💜

Owner's Response: It is so nice to hear that my guests enjoyed their time at my home. It is especially nice to hear that they will be returning! Don't worry if you are allergic to pets. The house is SUPER cleaned after a guests' beloved pet is here. I have a strict pet policy that sometimes works out to be a win/win, as it did in this case. Often, vacationers wish they had more time in Austin because there is so much to see and do here. Longer stays always receive the best rates. If you can stay longer, I recommend it. You can literally stay as busy as you like or relax as much as you want. If you book 7 nights, the 7th night is FREE! I look forward to meeting you soon! debb. : )

Great Location & House

Great for Out-of-Town Wedding Guests

  • 5 of 5

We needed room for family members coming to Austin for a wedding, and Deborah's house was perfect! She is so easy-going and accommodating. The house is spacious and comfortable. There are lots of restaurants and stores within walking distance, and Deborah has great maps showing you how to get around.

Lovely Comfortable Private Home Away From Home

  • 4 of 5

First of all the Peacock property is on a friendly and safe road. Daily, each morning, the neighbor's cat "Cheeto" came meowing at the door and would hang out on the front porch with whomever in our group wanted to go out and spend a few moments with her. Then she would go and we wouldn't see her again until the following morning. Her owner, a neighbor, came over to say hello one morning, as well. The front porch looks over a lovely front yard. The back yard is also charming and completely private. There is a rose arbor serving as a entry off the stone patio into a garden that has mature trees, which the birds enjoy daily.

Inside the house there are touches everywhere to make the visitor feel welcome, comfortable and relaxed. The kitchen was a delight to fix breakfast in each morning and our beds were all cozy and comfortable. Equipped with WiFi, we all were able to use our devises, enjoy TV, and/or listen to our favorite music. We were 3 generations, the youngest 14, the oldest 73 - everyone loved the place.

Owner's Response: Yes, Cheeto goes around the neighborhood saying hello, but does not come in the house. I always enjoy sitting on the front porch in the mornings especially. So nice to hear all 3 generations enjoyed my home. Hope to see this family back again soon.
