The apartment was bright and well furnished, very clean, and accessible.



Love, loved, loved the beautiful prairie reserve and lovely park. The pool was an added plus and welcomed in this heat.



We definitely will rent again!

Great Apartment for short or long stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for about a week on a working vacation and found it very clean, comfortable and convenient to getting around the Austin area. Also, the community pool was very nice and having access to it was a big plus. There's a great walking/running trail around the community and tennis courts near by in case it's not too hot to take advantage of them! The landlords are great and were very helpful with suggestions for local things to do (restaurants, bars, etc.). If you want the convenience of having a kitchen, the one in the apartment is pretty nice and has most of what you need for some good cooking. There is a parking spot right next to the entrance off the street. Overall, very nice, new, modern apartment that definitel beats a hotel stay.

Everything we could have asked for

  • 5 of 5

The owners were great! They had everything set up for us as if we were in our own house. Which makes vacation so much easier. They even have a compilation of everything nearby within walking distance if we were to ever need something else to do. But Austin has so much to do it's had to have a plain moment. We know where we will be staying again if we're ever in the Austin area again. Thanks!

What a Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this apartment for a week in March 2016. Michael and Marsha are very friendly and welcoming and very helpful to their visitors. They were very quick to respond to emails. The apartment is very clean and looks quite new - I'd guess it is no more than ten years old. It is very clean and well-kept. There is one bedroom, a large bathroom and a well-equipped kitchen. Parking is right there. The neighborhood is also quite new and very walkable. There is a park and pond right across the street. It is all part of a large master-planned community that includes a grocery store and many other shops. Easy access to all areas around Austin and to I-35. We recommend this place very highly. We plan to return there next year.

Convenient, tidy but well-equipped

  • 5 of 5

The McDonoughs have a clean, well maintained little garage apartment. It is very easy to reach downtown locations without having to go on I35. The owners are not at all intrusive, and the neighborhood is quiet. Many amenities are very close in the upscale Mueller neighborhood. We will return!

Perfect Everything

  • 5 of 5

After a long search we choose this lovely Studio Apt. The owner Michael couldn't have been more kind and accomidating! Everything we needed was there. Very clean!

Quite neighborhood and the green belt just across the street is beautiful.

The location is just east of town, which made venturing into town very easy.

We highly recommend staying here while you are enjoying the amazing city of Austin.

Thanks again!

Weekend Get Away

  • 5 of 5

I'm so glad we chose this apartment to stay at for our weekend getaway. It's in a cute little neighborhood, and the apartment is so nice. Much nicer than most hotels, and for a better price. It was very clean and private. There is access to two pools although we didn't have time to take advantage of those we drove by them, and they looked great. I would highly recommend staying here.
