Comfortable, great location, wonderful introduction to Austin

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a reunion among a group of girlfriends from graduate school and it was perfect for our needs! The house is lovely, with beautiful outdoor space and very close to Barton Springs. The study served well enough as a third bedroom with the pullout couch and the kitchen was well equipped. Communicating with the owners was easy and pleasant and they were very accommodating. I would definitely book again if I was in the Austin area!

A wonderful stay in a beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

Our family celebrated Thanksgiving at this beautiful home. A perfect place for such an occasion. The home is artistically decorated and absolutely well equipped. All we needed were our own food to cook and accompanying beverages. The location is superb, nestled on a hill, overlooking a small "forest" of live oak and other greenery. There are terraced sitting areas with lovely views. The owners were very helpful and provided excellent information as needed. We would definitely stay there again and highly recommend this rental.

Beautiful home and great location.

  • 5 of 5

Exceptional, well equipped house/home in a high cliff area close to downtown and local parks. We and our long time friends from NYC had a great time. Owners are very accommodating, hope to return in the future. On this trip we rented 3 different homes in the hill country and this house was by far the best.

Great location, lovely home

  • 5 of 5

It's a beautiful home, very spacious. The home is right near Barton springs pool & Zilker park, & very close to downtown Austin. We stayed for 3 nights during ACL. We were really close to Zilker park, and able to walk to the festival each day. The outdoor patio is awesome with several levels, a large dining table & sitting area on one level, & a fire pit below on a lower level with more seating areas. Definitely going to stay here again.
