Beautiful property !

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property in a beautiful location! It sleeps 10, and we filled up every bed with family in town for my son's wedding. Barton Springs was a a treat for the out-of-towners, and there are coffee shops and restaurants nearby. Lisa was a wonderfully gracious host and worked with us in both checking in and checking out to accommodate plane schedules. Everything you need is here, whether you have a definite agenda or just need to relax. We spent several afternoons camped out on the deck, watching the sporting events in the park and visiting with each other. The rooms are very comfortable, tastefully furnished, and perfectly equipped to anticipate your every need. Don't pass up an opportunity to see this place!,

An absolutely amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

Lisa's home was wonderful! It was very clean and exactly as the photos and description described. The location was awesome -- overlooking the park and very accessible to downtown and other parts of Austin. Lisa was available at all times and checked in to ensure we were all set. I would highly recommend this property to a group traveling to Austin and will certainly consider staying here again if I return with a large group!

Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house! It looks exactly like the pictures! The house was very clean and we could help ourselves to what was in the fridge and pantry. It's walking distance to several tasty restaurants, I would recommend Austin Java and a few steps to Barton Springs. It's a $10 fasten ride to Rainey Street or 6th street. Great house, great location!

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Lisa's property is perfectly located in walking distance to Zilker Park and Barton Springs, and a short drive to many other attractions, including Rainey Street, South Congress restaurants and shops, 6th Street, and Lake Austin. Her house is very clean and perfectly decorated, it has comfortable beds, a cozy living room, and an open kitchen fully stocked with the necessities to make a delicious meal! Our group of 7 girls couldn't stop raving about the house! It was so perfect for our weekend getaway! Lisa was delightful to communicate with and was very accommodating. I highly recommend her property if you are looking for a relaxing or adventurous weekend in Austin!

Amazing house! Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Austin.

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at Lisa's property for a girls trip to Austin. I must say, this house was the highlight of our trip. It's listed as a condo but feels more like a stand alone house. The view from the living area is incredible, it was really nice to wake up to such a gorgeous view of the park. The house itself looks like it's decorated by a professional interior designer. I received so many compliments from the girls in my group on what a great find the house was. We cooked a couple meals there and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we could need. The house itself is a 10 minute walk to Barton springs and she even had beach towels and floaties we could use for the day. Every couch, chair and bed in the house was like sitting/sleeping on a cloud. I had the best nights sleep. The house is a short drive to downtown, about 8 minutes. There is also a really cool food truck park within walking distance of the house. I would not hesitate to stay there again and have already recommended friends and family. Lisa was always a text away and very prompt with responding to any question I had. Thank you Lisa for providing such a warm home for a very memorable stay!

Austin House

  • 5 of 5

Great house and location. Lisa was great- allowed an early check-in and delayed check-out. Beds are super comfortable. Some fun restaurants are walking distance on Barton Springs Road. You can also rent bikes there for taking the park loop downtown.

This property sits 379 steps from the back entrance of Barton Springs, a 1,000 foot long, spring fed, natural limestone pool. Additionally, it is a stone's throw to Austin's urban jewels, Zilker Park and the Hike and Bike Trail which boast lush scenery and urban skyline views. These attractions consist of 360 acres on which visitors can ride bikes (bike rental half a mile away), hike, rent kayaks or canoes as close as 0.6 miles by foot, play volleyball or disk golf, fly kites, or stroll through the botanical gardens. While at the lake you can try your hand at stand-up paddle boarding, the world's fastest growing water sport. Barton Springs Road is home to many bars and restaurants, a putting range, a mini golf course, and a performing arts center. Nearby is the Zac Scott Theater, the Austin Nature and Science Center, the South Congress shops, home to First Thursday, and a spectacular view of the Congress Bridge bats each dusk between March and November.
