About Robert

I love living in Austin because it is one of the most charming cities that I know. I spend most of my free time at Townlake and the east Austin events. This area offers a ton of great restaurants/bars and outdoor activities so I stay very busy enjoying the neighborhood.

Robert purchased this house in 2011

Why Robert chose Austin

This property is centrally located in a great neighborhood on a quiet street with fantastic neighbors. It's a short walk to Townlake and Fiesta Gardens; a short walk to the commuter rail which gets you downtown in a matter of minutes; and the new Rainey St. district and 6th street is 1 mile away. The home is brand new so it's super clean and the open floor plan is perfect for entertaining large groups.

What makes this house unique

New Home with new appliances & upgrades

Huge open floor plan

Perfect location convenient to downtown

Great place to stay for a group!

  • 5 of 5

Robert was so accommodating as far as letting us check in and out early to better fit our travel schedules. The house was very clean and well kept. Our group of 10 girls fit perfectly and each of us was even able to have our own bed. Having four bathrooms was also great for all 10 of us getting ready. Location was good- we felt safe and it was a very quick cab trip to downtown and surrounding areas. I would definitely recommend this property!!

Great space and a perfect Set up for a large get together!

  • 4 of 5

The layout to this house is perfect to hosting a large party. I had 16 guys in Austin for a Bachelor Party and it worked out perfectly. The first floor is an open space where dining room, kitchen, and family room are all view-able from one end of the house to the other. There were four bedrooms with double/single/bunk bed combinations to maximize sleeping space. The Bathrooms were all recently upgraded and very clean. No one ever had to wait for a shower during our stay there. The Basement is no frills, but has plenty of beds to accommodate anyone that couldn't find one upstairs.

Robert was a great home owner. Very responsive whenever I had a concern or question, and extremely accommodating to our special requests.

There were a few items that weren't working in the house when we got there, but nothing that prevented us from having a great time. The house is located in an up-and-coming neighborhood, but we never felt threatened or worried during our stay. It is a few miles from most of the activity of downtown, so a car rental or dependence on Uber is a necessity. There are very tight noise restrictions outside the house due to the proximity of neighbors, but we never had a problem as long as we kept everyone inside at night.

At the end of the Day, it was a great place in a great city and I would not hesitate to book again and stay at this house.

Austin Vacation Rental

Excellent property for our Bachelor Party of 16. Even though the weather was disappointing the house and location did not disappoint one bit. I would recommend this property to anyone or group that values location as much as our group did.

Perfect Austin Rental for a Big Group!

  • 5 of 5

This house was awesome! Not only was it very nice on the inside, including all of the bathrooms, but it was the perfect set up for my group of 16 ladies. The location was also great because it was minutes from the different downtown areas. All of our Uber rides were cheap. There was plenty of sitting areas and space for this large group. The kitchen also was spacious. Upon arrival, paper products, trash bags, kitchenware, various condiments, spices, etc. were all available for use stated by the very kind owner. The owner also was extremely responsive and quick whenever I had questions about things. He also sent my security deposit back the night I checked out. Absolutely loved staying here and would highly recommend it to others!!

House Not What It Seems -- Beware

  • 2 of 5

I booked this property for a 4-day bachelor party. Based on the description, we were really excited about the mix of indoor and outdoor space -- especially a large balcony immediately adjacent to the living room. Upon arriving, we were very disappointed to find the owner decided to built an ugly, plywood wall completing blocking patio access and most light into the living room. Definitely did NOT look like all the beautiful pictures and posted property description (which included large patio as key feature).

House: Overall, the house is very large and well furnished with all the necessities. As you can tell by its capacity, this is really designed as a "crash pad" for large groups. Most of the rooms have 4+ beds and the basement has over 7 mattresses. Living room has two seating areas that can each accommodate ~10 people comfortably and stereo with aux hookup. Unfortunately, the primary living room has a wall outside the patio door that blocks most light and access to large patio (that was advertised when I originally booked).

Neighborhood: The area is primary residential and about 1 mile from Rainey St & 6th St. As we learned, this is farther than you think during hot summer. In the end, we ended up taking Ubers at night (very cheap) but took advantage of nearby stores for supplies. Plenty of street parking. The owner has a very strict noise policy (especially outside) since there are small children living next door. This policy was emphasized several times prior to check-in, although we did not encounter any issues.

I'd recommend for large groups if you plan to have a quiet gathering; however, I cannot give more than 2 stars since property was inconsistent with description and we specifically picked the unit for outside patio (next to living room). I would have expected some notice or disclosure from the owner. I hope the owner revises the description to EXCLUDE the patio and adds new photos of the living room that showcase the plywood wall by the living room. If you're okay with this "feature" (which was probably added to reduce outside noise), it's a great house.

Enjoy Austin!

Owner's Response: So sorry for the misunderstanding! I thought I had clearly communicated with Matt about the temporary maintenance on the 2nd story patio before his arrival! Unfortunately, we had a major (record setting) flood in Austin the week before his arrival. The flooding was so severe that I hired a home inspector to evaluate the property for any damage. He discovered that the support posts for the 2nd story patio needed significant reinforcing due to the flood. So to be clear, the home sits on a small hill allowing the front of the house to be a single story structure and the back of the house to be a two story structure. This layout means that all of the rain falling off of the roof runs down the hill underneath the main patio area. The flash floods that we had the week before Matt's arrival washed away a significant area around the support posts for the patio! I was advised to stay off of the patio until it was repaired. I hired a professional foundation company to repair the damage but they were not able to complete the repair before Matt & his friends arrived. Therefore, as a safety concern I had the patio area sectioned off in an effort to make certain that no one was injured while staying at the property. Rest assured, the patio has been professionally repaired, and the area around the support posts have been graded in a way that will keep them from needing the same type of repair if any future flooding occurs. Regardless, I'm extremely sorry about the misunderstanding. I did explain to Matt about the patio before his arrival and even offered a full refund due to the circumstances. Again, this was a temporary major safety concern and it has been fully addressed. All future rentals should have full access of the patio with no problems whatsoever. If anything similarly unusual should come up, I will be in full communication to make certain that you know what to expect before you arrive! Thanks! Robert

EXACTLY 1 mile east from downtown, 6th street, and Rainey Street. Walking distance to east side bars/restaurants/venues. 1/8 mile from Town lake and Fiesta Gardens.

The house is 6.7 miles from the airport. It's 10 minutes by car.



GOOGLE: chicon st & garden st. on maps to get an idea of the location of the property.

I'll go over the options for getting to the house from the airport. You could get a taxi or you can also opt for the bus. There's a bus that's called the airport flyer that takes you straight downtown from the airport. Very few if any stops in-between so it's fairly quick. Once you're downtown you'll be about one mile from the house so you could take a taxi from there or transfer to another bus which would take you to a bus stop a few blocks from the house. There's also the commuter rail that stops at the convention center downtown and then the next stop is at a location about 5 blocks from the house. Easy to walk to the house from that stop.
