Property is not the same as reviews

  • 2 of 5

Only one TV, which did not have cable and did not have good reception. Beds are not queen size. Reviews are for a totally different property. Location is in a subdivision, need to drive everywhere. Owners would not give access code until we were two hours from destination. VRBO sent instructions for different property. Pictures are deceiving - place is much smaller than in pictures. Very clean and well stocked with paper products, soap, etc.

Owner's Response: The property description specified one television. This is the first time we have heard of poor reception on the television and the guest never reported this during their stay. We investigated afterwards but found no issues. The television also has DVR service and Netflix available. The beds are absolutely queen sized. We were in regular contact with the guest regarding the property and provided access codes prior to arrival. We also offered to meet the guest at the property at the time of their choosing to make sure everything was to their satisfaction but they declined. We have not received any feedback from other guests regarding the size of the unit but it is very roomy, has an open floorplan, 9-10 foot ceilings ranging from the bedrooms to the living room and generous outdoor living with 2 balcony's. The master bedroom is also very large and open with a private balcony. .

Great place and exactly as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

The place was perfect for our group. Plenty of space inside and a nice big backyard. Very dog friendly - doggy door and a fully fenced in backyard was perfect. The neighborhood was quiet, safe and centrally located. The only negative was it was a little distant from downtown and the Uber rides ranged from $35-$50 depending on the time of day.

Amazing Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay visiting our friends for the weekend from California and Texas. There were 7 of us, plenty of space, great location, beautiful and clean.

We loved relaxing in the back yard after a long day exploring Austin! The owner, was so helpful and available for recommendations and questions.

We will definitely stay here again when in Austin.

Beautiful, vintage ATX home in a great location!!!

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't ask for more in a vacation rental! I frequent Austin and I found they did a really great job at keeping the vintage Austin style while incorporating modern touches where necessary. Everyone loved the pink flamingos! Decorating and furnishing gets an A+. The open floor plan was perfect for my entertainment needs and all the space allowed for everyone to get away from each other after a few days ;) I never had any issues with the home during my stay but I had no doubt in my mind that the owners would be there for any of my needs. They had everything I forgot to bring in the house already! I did quite a bit of cooking and entertaining there but not because the location was bad only because I didn't realize how good it was and didn't plan accordingly - next time! I would definitely stay there again but not before I check out some of Scott and Sally's others properties. Great people and even better property managers!

Super Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property for over a month. Very clean and comfortable with everything we needed for our stay. Our dog loved the big back yard and patio area. Strange Brew is a great coffee shop and live music brew pub we would frequent and I would recommend.

Libyan house review

  • 5 of 5

I'm a 16 year old boy and I very much liked this stay. Nice big screen television I was able to hook my xbox up to if I was bored. Everything was very clean and neat. Everything I needed was provided including toiletries. Which is good because I forgot mine at my house. I stayed with my mom and brother for a week and we all got our own room. A nice neighborhood conviently located in south Austin. Quiet but still very fun. Very cool decoure with unique edison bulbs that I had really never seen before. I would reccomend this stay to anyone. Five stars.
