Perfect home in central location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our four children for a family wedding weekend. Couldn't have been happier. Beautiful design and layout plus nice decor and super comfortable beds. The outdoor entertaining area was a dream - huge covered living and bar area plus a beautiful pool. Lots of kids toys and books so very enjoyable for all. Best thing - we felt like we were in our own retreat but only minutes from restaurants, lake, and downtown. Would definitely stay again!

The Quintessential Austin Location for a Group

  • 5 of 5

This property could not have been more perfect for our group. Sprawling, yet intimate setting with a backyard set-up that cannot be topped. The location is close enough for a cab downtown and neighbors are friendly and quiet. Everyone in the group is already itching to come back. Thank you! We had an incredible time!

Modern, luxurious, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We loved it! The beds were incredibly comfortable, the bathrooms were beautiful, and we had everything we needed! The house is very open, especially the master, so if you need privacy, not the house for you! Perfect for a girls weekend.

Very cool house! Decks are AMAZING!

  • 4 of 5

The house was very cool, Plenty big for a group of 10. Check- in was a breeze. The mobile app for the management company was so user friendly and informative. It is in need of some maintenance. The boards on the roof top decks are popping up and poses a safety risk. The house really needs to be cleaned better. One sink downstairs doesn't drain well. The other "gurgles" a lot. In all fairness we were provided a maintenance number. The issues just weren't bothersome enough / urgent to waste time having a maintenance person come in. The limitation of space in the pantry, and refrigerator was a little bothersome. Especially since we weren't welcome to use salt, sugar etc. Towels ( paper, guest towels and pool towels) were very, very short supplied. The application to stay was sooo lengthy and comber-sum- as well as the contract - $500 dollars, per person per night for any guest not listed on the app. That's insane!!! We know we wouldn't have a violation- but it was still shocking.

Considering all complaints- the house was so well set up for entertaining and relaxing. I would still recommend it and possibly rent it again (although I do feel it is a little overpriced.) Again, rooftop views were really cool. The living/dinning room - huge sliding glass doors open ALL the way up to the porch with the pool! That was so cool! Huge windows throughout the house! They were amazing views- and still very private ( they could have used somekind of shades for morning sun. But, the views and atmosphere were worth it! Over all a great place for a girls weekend!

Very convenient location and clean, modern house

  • 4 of 5

The house is great and very spacious. There seem to be a few issues regarding water and construction of the house that I believe the owner is working on and may not have been an issue in the past with no rain. The living room ceiling has water damage and leaks with signficant rain, the first floor shower leaks into the back bedroom pretty significantly despite closing the shower curtain. I would recommend providing additional towels and wash cloths. The house was very clean - there was so much common space I wish we had more time to spend on each deck level. Walker was very responsive to deal with. Coordinating early check in times could help but I understand the limitations there. The views from the top deck are amazing. The street the house is on was very quiet - we didn't see or hear a peep from anyone the entire time we were there. Great location within a few minutes drive to all parts of Austin. Would definitely recommend!
