Beautiful home, great location, helpful owner

  • 4 of 5

The check-in was easy and the owner was communicative, helpful, and flexible, especially when we had to change our dates. High marks for Brooks - he respects your privacy and wants your stay to be pleasant.

- Bedrooms were nice, and the master suite was spectacular. Space-foam mattresses & pillows, pretty comfortable. Big closets, too.

- Wi-Fi is good. 6 business guys all using Wi-Fi at the same time and not a spot of trouble.

- Outdoor space is 5-star. The back yard patio is big & comfortable. Tall fences in the back yard make it feel private. Master suite has its own patio, as does the top floor suite.

- The stove is amazing. It's a very expensive and unconventional Aga stove which is always on with two large cooktops and 4 oven compartments. Once you get used to it, this thing is addictive to cook on. The fridge is also noteworthy, a high-dollar oversized built-in model with tons of space. Previous guests left us some nice refreshments in there and we returned the favor when we left.

- The outdoor grill & dishwasher are aging a bit and it might be time to replace them. Also need to work on the wood floor in the kitchen which is starting to warp a bit but the floors are otherwise pretty good.

- The master bath is excellent, but the other two are merely nice. They could use shelves or someplace to put your stuff.

- The neighborhood is a mixed bag with really nice houses like this one mixed in with less nice houses, all spaced fairly close together. Not junky, but definitely urban.

- Overall, I would definitely recommend staying here. The house has a good vibe, wide open, comfortable and inviting.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. We strive to offer every guest a wonderful experience. I’ll checkout the grill and replace it. Someone spilled a ton of water which ruined the floors. We are in the process of replacing all the wood floors downstairs and updating the kitchen.

Beautiful home and ideal location!

  • 4 of 5

This was our first ever 'family Christmas' in Austin, Texas. This beautiful home was very comfortable for our group of 13; the back yard (including fire pit) was fun for all ages; and the location was very convenient. Brooks was easy to work with and was accommodating to our needs. Thanks for providing a welcome space for some great family memories.

Great house for large groups

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. We had 12 girls staying for the Justin Timberlake concert at F1 and we found the home to be very spacious even with that many people. The patio area is really nice and the beds were very comfortable. I will stay again if I have a large group coming back to Austin. The owner was also very responsive to questions before and during our stay.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

Great stay at a beautiful house! We were in Austin for a Bachelor party and had enough space for a large group. A lot of space in the house and in a central area (easy to uber or walk anywhere). Brooks was very responsive and helpful. Thanks!
