Great location, fabulous backyard space

  • 4 of 5

The property was in a great location and we absolutely loved the backyard/fire pit. Cleaning staff did a good job upon arrival and the house was in good order. A few minor issues were noticed (shower head inconsistent pressure, water temperature went hot/cold/hot/cold) but all-in-all a good stay.

TurnKey was great pre-arrival, calling several times to ask if we needed assistance making reservations, etc. Morning of checkout we received an email stating we had been granted late checkout of 12:00 PM instead of the normal 10:00 AM time. We left to eat breakfast and came back to get our luggage and get on the road at 11:45 AM only to find our keycode no longer worked. Called TurnKey and was on intermittent hold for 15-20 minutes. Finally they told me they would send someone to the house to let us in. 40 minutes later that person arrived and then proceeded to wait inside with us (and the cleaning lady showed up) until we left. This was very frustrating and invasive of our privacy as we had a 6+ hour car drive ahead of us so we all had to use the restroom! We were all very disappointed with the final hour of our stay, and it left a black mark on an otherwise fantastic trip!

Amazing location

  • 4 of 5

The property is very Niven with plenty of room for the 6 of us that stayed. The backyard was awesome with a pergola and a fire pit. We were easily able to walk or ride bikes between downtown and Zilker Park. The only issue that took it from 5 to 4 stars is the bathroom on the main floor is getting pretty run down with some mold around the tub and there were only 4 bath towels in the house when we stated there would be 6 people. We would stay again. A couple small tweaks to the property and leaving more towels and it would be perfect!

Reviewer Comments:

We recently converged on Austin for a week to spend time with our 4 adult children, son-in-law, and grandbaby. This home was perfect for our Austin adventure. The location was central to many fun activities the city has to offer such as Zilker Park, S. Congress street, Barton Springs, and many restaurants.

This property was great! I read many of the reviews prior to renting this home and needless to say, I was slightly worried. However! The house was absolutely precious. Convenient location, great layout, cute decor, huge backyard, and clean! If I had to find a complaint, I would say there could have been more towels... But, we also had 8 people stay.

Great location, but shabby amenities

  • 2 of 5

We booked this rental for a week during our kids' Spring Break. My 70-year-old parents also joined us. The location is great and walkable to many restaurants, Palmer Center, Zilker Park, and the lake. And also includes off-street parking, which was great. However, there is A LOT of loud truck/bus traffic (bus stop right outside house), and when we arrived there was a music festival happening close by and we could hear it in the house. The windows also rattled loudly when planes flew by.

The 3 bedroom layout was great for our family, but both of the downstairs bedrooms had very uncomfortable, squeaky beds. The downstairs bathroom shower was awful and sprayed all over the place, with poor water pressure. The ceiling fan in the downstairs bedroom also did not work. We were disappointed that there was only 1 hanger in the entire house. And only two hand towels and one washcloth could be found. And many of the white bath towels were stained. We ended up going to Target and buying our own towels.

The kitchen was well-equipped, but the dishwasher soap dispenser did not close easily. And the wine glasses, housed on an open shelf were grimy and needed a good wash before we used them. Same for some of the pots/pans.

We liked that there was a washer/dryer, but we were only left with two detergent cubes and no dryer sheets. Also had to pick these up at Target.

The furniture in the house is all very shabby, a little dirty, and mismatched, putting me in mind of a college house. I'm guessing this is a house rented for the many festivals happening in Austin. In fact, we found two ping pong balls on the floor and some red solo cups (beer pong anyone?).

We have family in Austin, and will definitely be coming back to town. But, I wouldn't rent this place again. Too expensive for the condition of it.
