Amazing home and even better host!

  • 5 of 5

We had 12 guys in Austin for three nights and this place was awesome. More than enough room for all of us to sleep, walking distance to South Congress Ave, and great outdoor space at the house to hang out. Tina was an amazing host, very responsive, and had the house very well prepped for us. I can't thank her enough and I would recommend this place to anyone! We had an amazing trip in Austin.

Amazing House - Experience was Top Notch!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 12 of us traveled to Austin from Houston for my bachelor party and I have to say, this rental was the best part about it! Upon arrival, Tina had everything already setup from the extra air mattresses needed to each bed having pillows, comforters, and sheets! Every guy had their own bed to sleep on!

I can't comment on the walk portion, since we did Uber everywhere we went. However, Uber was super convenient as well as "Flavor" which allowed us to deliver food while playing corn hole, ladder golf, beer pong, thunder struck, etc. There is also a firepit for some late night smores, of which we had none.

The house had recently been renovated and they did a superb job! I would recommend this rental to anyone looking for a place to stay in Austin. I'm sure we will visit again!

Excellent place for SXSW!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this place as part of a work trip to SXSW.

Excellent place to stay close to the centre of Austin in a pleasant and quiet neighbourhood. Can walk to Rainey St or SoCo in about 20 mins!

Tina was really helpful and even left us some drinks and snacks for when we got there, plus a great list of local hotspots.

The house is clean, spacious and well equipped - it has everything you would need for a week away!

We bumped in to the next group when we left and they were returning for a second year.

If you are looking for a nice place to stay close to the centre with space to relax, this place is perfect.

First time using Homeaway, but have used Airbnb regularly and this is one of the best places I have stayed in.

Great Location and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property to have a relaxing, team building, six (6) corporate manager off-site (get away) business meeting in Austin. Served the purpose well. Large dining table for group meetings. Cooked some of our own meals. Convenient walk to South Congress restaurants, night clubs. Property has 2 large decks which were used for relaxation along with horseshoe pitch and fire pit for bonding. House was very cleaned and included movie room for short company presentations. Very clean, comfortable, quiet. Owners (John and Tina) were hospitable in pointing out all local sites to visit during down time. Highly recommended. Will use again next year for corporate get away.

AMAZING Austin Rental

  • 5 of 5

I came for a bachelorette party in May and had the absolute best time staying in this amazing rental. The house is immaculate and adorable. The owners set up comfortable beds for us so that all of the guests were accommodated. The location is great. The rooftop was perfect for some AM yoga. I would recommend this rental to anyone and everyone for the ultimate Austin experience!
