About Sharon Drinkwine
I'm an artist, designer, foodie, film buff and collector of Outsider Art. (I'm an antique show, junk shop and eBay addict!). I designed my house to revolve around the kitchen and the art studio, the two places where I'm most happy. Well, make that three places, I'm happy swimming in my pool too. And oh yeah, I'm happy hanging out with friends on my porch, eating fresh food we just dragged home from the Sunset Valley Farmers Market (only two blocks away). And I'm happy taking walks around my neighborhood visiting the horses and hiking on the nearby nature trails. If you’re wondering why I’m so darned happy its because I was born and raised in upstate New York, where the winters are long and cold. Now that I live in Austin, where the weather is warm, the people are friendly and the culture is lively, I'm in heaven!
Sharon Drinkwine purchased this House in 2009

UT Graduation weekend.
Beautiful home, with all the amenities. House is fully stocked, we didn't lack.for anything. Twelve people fit comfortably.
Owner has done a great job and was very helpful and considerate. Overall a great experience.
Perfect Weekend Getaway
The pictures don't do this house justice. It was the perfect for our group of 11 girls to stay. It's close to everything Austin has to offer. The pool and patio were great to hangout, eat, and drink. Sharon is a great host who was very accommodating and offered up everything for use. I would definitely recommend for large groups!!
Heaven in Austin!
There are not enough words to describe how wonderful the weekend was here. While the pictures are STUNNING online, you have to SEE it to get the true experience. We stayed here for a bachelorette party and it was everything we could have wanted. I got chills when I walked in the door and even a little misty eyed. We were greeted by Sharon, who was the BEST in every sense of the word. Always accessible through the whole planning process and even during our stay. The decor of the house is just breathtaking and is truly an oasis. Each room had a special basket full of goodies for all of us as well. The outdoor shower was a dream and we loved how private the property was. You would never know you were in a community. Sharon connected us to a chef and massage therapists that came right to the house. Loved the fact that it was so close to the city as well. Highly recommend on all accounts. Heaven in Austin!!!!!
This house made my girls weekend even more amazing
From reservation to questions asked before arriving to checking in and out, our entire experience was so easy and wonderful. Sharon is such an amazing host and the house had more than we could have ever asked for with details and extras. We were so comfortable and excited about everything it had to offer, and I couldn’t imagine going anywhere else for such an important and special trip. The location was so beautiful and made us feel like VIPs with how private yet spacious it was. The grounds are so beautiful and it is so evident the amount of love she puts into the property. Will be dreaming of this house for months!
Thank you Sarah for such a sweet review! I really loved having you and hope to see you again soon.
Highly recommend this place. We had a wonderful time and the place is even better in person.
Gorgeous, indulgent and a touch of Austin eclectic
Sharon is an exceptional owner/manager! This is the best stocked home in which our group has ever stayed. It is a lovely property, quiet, indulgent, gorgeous and a dash of whimsy and humor. You will have everything you could need and more. Our large group of 10 had plenty of space, and really enjoyed how well taken care of we were as guests, as well as the unique detail and beauty of this home.
Not only is Austin the live music capital of the world, but its also known for its many outdoorsy entertainment options. Only two blocks away from the Loft House is a trail head to the Sunset Valley nature trail, which offers several miles of scenic hiking. The Violet Crown hiking trailhead, which connects to Barton Creek in the center of Austin, is only one mile away. Better yet, one of my favorite weekend morning activities is to pack a picnic, drive to Taco Deli (1500 Spyglass Drive - a ten minute drive), eat one of their awesome breakfast tacos then cross the street to the Barton Creek Greenbelt Trailhead. Walking toward Barton Springs (east), you’ll pass several beautiful swimming holes where you can set up your picnic and cool off in the creek. You can also rent paddle boards and kayaks right in the middle of town on Town Lake. There are so many outdoor options here, just let me know your interests and I’ll send you more complete information.
