Guestbook comments from the manager

We used the peach Tree House to house the family of a UT Graduation celebrant and it was perfect! There were 6 of us that stayed here and there was plenty of space and all the amenities we needed. We hosted a dinner for 25 family and friends on Friday night and the back patio was ideal. While the weather didn't fully cooperate, we had a wonderful and memorable weekend. We really enjoyed being so close to Zilker park, South congress, Town Lake, and all the Downtown attractions. We had a great weekend and we will use Georjean for future Austin rentals. She was very accomodating and made everrthing extremely easy. We will recommend her to our friends. Thanks for a great weekend! - The Ombrog Family

Beautiful Home; Wonderful Location!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to find Georjean's home available for the weekend of our daughter's graduation from UT. We were looking for accommodations close to campus as well as restaurants on S. Congress and this home fit the bill perfectly. There were 7 of us staying at the house and did not feel cramped at all. The home is charming, very clean, and well appointed. Thank you Georjean for your attention to detail; it was lovely coming to the home with the holiday lights on and the house warm. Another plus about the home is the cottage in the back. If we would have had a larger group then we potentially would have had additional beds for them.

We highly recommend this home to anyone who would like to be in close proximity to Zilker Park, the night life in Austin and the university.

We couldn't have asked for a better place and location to stay. Georjean was such a great person to work with and very welcoming. We were right in the mix of everything exciting.

Wonderful house and host!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Georjean's house this past weekend for a bachelorette party and absolutely loved it! There were 8 girls and we had more than enough space and comfortable sleeping spots for all of us in the house. Georjean was a fantastic host! She was very responsive via email leading up to our trip and accommodating while we were there. We couldn't have asked for more. The house is a few miles from everywhere we went and it was easy to drive or get an Uber anywhere. We would love to come back!

Spacious, affordable home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

I rented the house and cottage for a bachelorette party weekend. I winded up having a total of 8 girls stay and it was more than enough room (and restrooms!) The futon in one of the bedrooms was already made for us when we arrived which was great! We used the kitchen in the main house for a couple of meals and we all felt at home. It is clean and comfortable. Also Georjean replies to emails quickly with any questions or concerns. We kept in communications for about 6-7months because I had to change my rental to a later date. This house is in an excellent location for an excellent price. The girls and I all want another reason for us to rent this house again!!!

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at this house while visiting Austin for the first time to celebrate my birthday with friends and family. This was my first time using HomeAway. Georjean was really great to work with! She answered all of my questions and made the process very easy. I can't say enough about her. The house was perfect! We rented the main house and the back cottage for 7 people. It was nice, clean, roomy, comfortable... I brought my dog who loved the fenced in yard. We enjoyed the back patio and the fire pit. This house has everything you could possibly need, and is in an excellent location. We spent time at Zilker Park, South Congress, Lamar, and 6th Street. It is in such a convenient location. I had the best weekend, and am already planning my next visit! I will be staying in this house again! I don't know why I've been staying in hotels all of these years. Thanks Georjean!
