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!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the house and it was perfect! The master bedroom was off from the other rooms and was very quiet. The other bedrooms had comfy beds and great space. The house is unique, as is the neighborhood, and we had a wonderful time! Deb was there if we needed anything and very helpful with area knowledge.

Wonderful House and Terrific owner :-), nice neighborhood, great location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week spent at Debb's House. The house is perfect, and we all loved it and Debb is one of the most wonderful owners we've met. We felt like home at Debb's house!! Wonderful, quiet and safe neighborhood. Great backyard and Debb has even a little booklet with suggestion on restaurants, good places to visit etc. You can walk to Deep Eddy Pool, which is a very nice place to go to after/during a hot day :-) You can also walk to restaurants, bars...Always prompt in returning your calls, always following up and making sure all is going smooth. We had a wonderful time in Austin! Thank you Debb for everything!!

Beautiful house in West Austin, perfect get away.

  • 5 of 5

I came to Austin to celebrate my wife's birthday with some friends and to go to ACL.

The house is a very well maintained craftsman style house with all of the character you would expect in West Austin.

Deborah was super nice and went out of her way to ensure that all my questions were answered and that our arrival and departure were flawless. I have not rented many homes through VRBO but I do know that any future home rentals will have a high bar to meet. One of the couples with us rent their house through this service and commented how they would be incorporating some of personal touches that we enjoyed during our stay.

I recommend anyone visiting Austin, specifically for ACL to stay at this beautiful house as it is just a short 20 minute walk to Zilker Park.

Austin, TX - Peacock house

  • 5 of 5

The house was fantastic, plenty of room and lots of artistic items to look at and enjoy. Debbie Peacock, owner, was very helpful - she gave us info regarding Austin, places to eat and drink, as well as grocery stores, etc. She checked on us to make sure we were having a good time and to answer any qestions. The city is great and easy to get around in with cab service.

There was a large craft fair going on and the So-Co area has lots of little shops with unique items to enjoy. Too bad we were flying, although we all purchased some smaller items.

My 3 sisters and I had a great time. Thanks Debbie.

PERFECT location, the house is ultra-comfortable and has a wonderful "Austin-vibe"..

  • 5 of 5

Not only is the house wonderful, but the owner is terrific. We were 'checked' in and given a brief orientation on the house, the neighborhood, and given tips on nightlife, dining, etc. I cannot find words to express how comfortable the house is, and what a great location! . Walking distance to Deep Eddy Pool, great restaurants, wonderful bars, etc. I have rented four or five different houses in Austin for weekend visits, but this is by far the best deal-not just value, but the owner is amazing! the house is amazing! and we had an amazing time!
