We both found our way to Austin. Sophie from Tainan, Taiwan and Jack from Dallas, Texas. Halfway around the globe, we found each other in Austin and got married on 12/12/2012!
We both have our day jobs and love biking to enjoy the beauty of Austin during our leisure time. Of course, being foodies, we love trying the great food and new restaurants in Austin all the time!
Sophie Li & Jack Yang purchased this condo in 2014
LoneStarVR has everything you would need during your extended stay- a gated and quiet community with all amenities, comfy king bed for a good rest, and fully stocked kitchen for a homemade meal! We would love it to be a place that just feels like home for you.
Great Location and great amenities on premises! Located between Mopac (Loop 1),183 and Capital of Texas Hwy (loop 360). You have quick and easy access to restaurants, shops and most of Austin's attractions. Here you will find a new appreciation of Austin!
If you are looking for a place that is centrally located but not right downtown, this is the place. Two minutes and you are on any highway needed to take you in any direction you want to go. The condo is small and not suited for any more than two people, but it is a first floor unit that makes it ideal for hauling in groceries, suitcases, etc. Our landlord, Linyen, was super - always readily available for any question or concern we had.
We stayed in this rental for five weeks and loved it. Even though it's tiny, it feels like more than you need. The location is great, close to two highways that can whisk you to downtown or the airport. There's plenty of shopping and food close by, and good grocery stores within minutes.
I enjoyed the full kitchen most - we were able to pull off a complete Thanksgiving dinner with just the dishes on hand!
The bed was great - high and comfortable, perfect for our needs, and the bottom floor, no-steps access was very helpful.
We'll try to stay here again on our subsequent visits.
The wonderful place in a quiet condo community is located in the Northern Austin, it's very nice and safe place to live. The apartment is very clean and fully equipped. No need to bring even a brush tool, you'll find it there.
The price is very reasonable. I want to thank the hostess again, she's very good person, who helps a lot with any question.
We stayed for a month visiting kids and the general are around that part of Texas. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for a short term rental to do project work, visit family or just see the sights. The owners are perfect hosts, the unit is clean comfortable (we liked the bed topper so much we bought one just like it for our return home) and well stocked. We are not big restaurant folks and tended to cook in most nights (however restaurants abound). Everything I needed to cook with was there.
The work out facilities were good for us on that day we had rain or cold. On warm days, there was really great streets to go walking in the general area.
The location is super perfect. You have access to highways and lots of shopping. Once you get used to Texas highway design with feeder roads you can get anywhere quick! The security of the gated community was reassuring.
Since our grown kids will probably stay in Austin I an sure we will tp return to this unit and owner.
Thanks to Sophie, Jack, and Jack's Mom for making my stay truly wonderful. They always tried to go out of their way to help us in anyway they could and we appreciated it. Thanks guys and definitely recommend this condo to anyone who wants to be centrally located in Austin. Condo was like living at home. Thanks again.
This vacation rental is a great find in Austin. It had all we needed to live comfortably and felt like a second home. The property is conveniently located near two major highways with tons of shopping and restaurants within a couple minutes drive. The neighborhood is quiet and beautiful in the northern hills of Austin and it makes a great place to go for a walk in the morning.
The unit is a bit small but we were able to host seven people without difficulty. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, dishes, and cookware which we used to cook many meals (though the food here in Austin is really good with lots of selection). There is a nice little patio with chairs looking out onto a small courtyard tennis court which we used quite a bit during our stay. The bed is a king size and very comfortable and solid and there is a large walk-in closet and washer/dryer. We never had a problem with noisy neighbors and most were very friendly. Overall the unit was in a very quiet and tranquil setting and met and surpassed all of our needs in terms of amenities. The unit is on the ground floor which is nice so there is no need to climb stairs. The unit was clean when we arrived and the owners put together a nice welcome presentation for our arrival.
The owners were friendly and very responsive to our needs with a quick phone call or text message reply and immediate service calls placed and taken care of for our concerns. They showed a genuine desire to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. They suggested many things to see and do in and around Austin through the use of the GladToHaveYou website/app and were happy to volunteer additional suggestions. We will definitely stay with these owners the next time we visit Austin.
We really enjoyed a number of things in the Austin area. The drive north on the Capitol of Texas Highway over the Colorado river through the hills is scenic and the overlook of the river at Mount Bonnell is worth a visit. We had a blast at a downtown comedy show venue called Esther's Follies and visited the State Capitol building and grounds. The South Congress Street area with its quirky restaurants and live music is worth visiting (if you can find parking) and the flight of the bats was fun to watch. Austin is just a really laid back, cool town with a very midwestern friendly vibe that we haven't seen on the coasts. Everyone seems to enjoy taking a minute to chat which really makes for a great vacation. Try Torchy's Tacos!!
