The location was perfect and the place was fully equipped and spotless. The close proximity to downtown and city parks made the trip even more enjoyable. The only problem we had was eating WAY too much BBQ. WE WILL BE BACK!


                                                                  Perfect in every way!

                                                                  Lauren H.

                                                                  My dearest friends and I just returned from a wonderful long weekend in Austin. Lisa's house was the perfect spot for our bachlorette party weekend. We loved being able to spread out and then come together in the living room and/or porch to talk and have a glass of wine. The house is in a great location. We loved looking over the park and then seeing the city lights at night from the porch and big windows in the living room. Everywhere we went was a quick uber drive. I would highly recommend Lisa's house to anyone considering Austin as a vacation destination.

                                                                  Clean, nicely appointed, and a great view!

Our female coworkers who were staying in a newer place were actually envious after visiting this place. It's clean, in a great location, quiet neighborhood, funky (in a good way), and has a phenomenal host. Lisa was responsive to all communication and I could tell that she wanted our our stay at the house to be an awesome experience, and it was! Thank you Lisa!

                                                                  Wonderful Stay

                                                                  We had a wonderful stay at the property. Lisa was very helpful and quick to respond to any questions we had. Ample space, comfortable beds, kitchen had everything we needed. Great location, close proximity to SoCo, downtown, and Barton Springs/Zilker park just across the street. We were able to walk 2 minutes to the Lady Bird hike and bike trail. Overall, a great experience and great location for seeing all Austin has to offer.

                                                                  Open yet intimate space above the treetops

The living-kitchen area was perfect to hang out in for our group. We had 10 adults staying here and we spent most of our time hanging out at the house, enjoying the view. The porch and views of the park were so relaxing and refreshing. Tons of natural light. Lisa, the host was very accommodating and easy to get a hold of. The place is extremely easy to find. The neighbors were friendly. Everyone agreed should we have a similar size group visiting in the future, we would want to stay here again. Thank you Lisa!

                                                                  Zilker Park
