Why Stacy Thomas chose Austin

We love living in Central Austin. Walk to breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Close proximity to great parks, UT, downtown, and the Lake. This property allows us to enjoy all of the amenities of Austin yet gives us enough room for our large family.

What makes this house unique

Great Central Austin large home (5,500 sq. ft) with multiple bedrooms and living areas. Beautiful wrap around front porch to entertain on or simply sit back and have a cup of coffee and watch the world go by. Beautiful enclosed backyard w/playscape.

Great House for Extended Family!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property for my niece's wedding in Austin and it turned out to be an ideal setup for family traveling from New York City: two adult daughters, two sisters and their husbands, and a niece and nephew. The house has multiple common rooms, a well-stocked modern kitchen, and enough bathrooms that getting ready to go out was never a battle. It was whistle-clean when we arrived, and the instructions Stacy left for us were clear and complete. I highly recommend the house!

Great for groups!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough great things about this property and the owner. This place had a huge open concept living area that was great for gathering my large group of guests. The best part was that each room had an on-suite bathroom that made each guest feel like they had their own oasis to go back to after a long day at the lake or out on the town. The house is also 1 block away from an amazing bakery/breakfast/coffee spot Texas Bread which had AWESOME sandwiches we catered for a day on the lake. It was easy to get taxi's to and from the lake, downtown and rainey street as well - about 5 minutes anywhere you want to go. We also walked to Torchy's Tacos- a must have in Austin!

The pictures of this place doesn't do it justice and I'd suggest this place to any family or friend gathering in Austin. I hope to return next year!

Wonderful for a big group

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location for our company hackathon. Big kitchen counters, and lots of tables/chairs/working spaces. The internet worked wonderfully and fast too, especially considering there were 20 people on it at a time! The big fridge and two dishwashers came in handy as well. The upstairs game room was an awesome bonus, and ended up being the yoga room at one point when our hackers took a break.

Stacy was quick to respond, easy going, and completely accurate about her house.

Wonderful experience and we would definitely utilize this house again!!

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This house was AMAZING. So open, airy and cozy. Stacy was a great host. She was very responsive and very accommodating. As for location - it's walkable to some things but not in what I'd call a "walkable" part of Austin. However, Austin is not exactly a huge walkable city anyway. Uber's are cheap so you can get wherever you need to be easily. As for the "feel" of the neighborhood - safety, chill atmosphere - it's awesome! Would definitely recommend this place to anyone coming with a big group to Austin.

Dream Home

  • 5 of 5

I hosted a dinner party at this home, and it was perfect! Stacy was very gracious and enthusiastic about making sure that every detail was perfect. The home itself is beautiful, and you will feel right at home in your temporary dream home. It's a great location, but who needs to go out, with such an inviting kitchen and warm sitting areas.
