Why Bob Easter chose North Shoal Creek

Legal and Licensed by the City of Austin. This super location is the place for you to land. Quiet area and neighborhood. The area has the most fantastic shopping just minutes from the front door. This home was built when it was considered almost out of town but now Austin has expanded and moved next door. The number of Superior and Fast Food restaurants will just amaze you, plus the selection of Organic Food Stores,Starbucks,Walmart which are just blocks away. And you can catch any major highway to get you to the Airport, UT or Downtown within 15 minutes (non rush hour drive time).

What makes this house unique

The minute you step into this home you know we have spent hours making it cozy and comfortable with quality furnishing, crown molding, new hardwoods, top of the line linens and bedding. The home is a smoke and pet free residence. We have spent additional money on energy features to make the home as energy efficient as possible. Additional care was given to the drapes with light and noise blocking panels plus drapes which also reduce noise and light. It's exceptionally clean and we work hard to make your stay perfect.

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a simple 3 bedroom house. It was just what we needed to be near our grand children. The house is very clean. Thank you for stocking the fridge for breakfast. It was perfect for our needs.

Owner's Response: Carol, You are right. Having a clean, restful and peaceful home close to family and grandchildren makes our property the perfect fit. Many of our guests have the grandchildren stay for sleep overs because of the twin, queen and king beds. And of course the formal dining for eight makes memories long after you leave. The grandchildren love the 1950's Diner benches for breakfast too. Please come back and stay with us again. Bob

Exceptionally clean & neat; super well-stocked; owner Bob outstanding

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two weeks while visiting family in both Austin and Leander. We have stayed at HomeAway houses many times over the past several years. This house ranks right up at the top in all respects. A nice neighborhood, conveniently located, very clean and neat house, extremely well-stocked and an owner (Bob) who couldn't be nicer or more responsive to our needs or questions. Definitely we will stay here again in the future.

Owner's Response: Martin you and Betty are wonderful. Thank you for choosing to stay with us and it is so appreciated how you left the home. We take great pride in making sure everything you need during your stay is available and ready. You are so right about the location. Our couples and families are surprised how the home is nested in the middle of everything they need, especially The Domain and Arboretum Shopping and the availability of every type of restaurant one would every want or need, plus local grocery stores like Whole Foods and HEB. Please come back soon. We loved having you and the family.

Clean, well equipped, good location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this home. The accommodations were very comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. The children particularly enjoyed the "60's diner" seating in the kitchen. The location was convenient to restaurants and it was an easy drive to downtown and to other local attractions. Bob was readily available to help with any of our needs.We would definitely stay here again when we visit Austin.

My New HOME AWAY FROM home!!!

  • 5 of 5

I want to start off by saying I am so sorry for not doing this sooner - My life is so hectic but today I had to take the time to do this review not just because I had an amazing Vacation but it will help the next tenant and not to mention the Easter Family.

I absolutely Love this Home and Family!!!!!

Our vacation was to visit my son for a laid back visit and attend my Grandson 3rd Birthday Party - My husband and I took our GROWN young adult kids (who had never been on a plane before) and my mother.

First of all we arrive to a very nice quiet neighborhood that was tucked away but close to everything we needed. We were greeted with SMILES and HUGS - Mr. Easter and I had communicated so much before the trip that it was like going to see relatives. I love the Easter Family! They were very welcoming and showed us every detail of the most wonderful house that accommodated all of my family needs. It was VERY CLEANED and had the little extras that you don't get when you rent Hotel suites. THE BOOK -was a great idea - It answered any and all questions you may have concerning the home. Very informative. Everything was labeled - Loved it!! I felt like I was Home. I was cleaning to sitting on the back COVERED porch drinking my morning coffee to cooking. It was wonderful.

My Son has made Texas his home for awhile so I know I will be back to visit soon- and I hope it's ok because this is my NEW HOME WHEN EVER I AM IN TEXAS!

See you soon :)

Owner's Response: Tura, You are home when you stay with us. We want every person and family to feel like they are coming home. We work hard to make sure you have a relaxing and Fun Stay. And we love meeting new people. So glad your family were able to make the trip too. The joy for us is to know you loved the home and will come back soon. Our travelers love the location and how easy it is to shop and find great places to dine. There are 23 Five Star, Mid-Range and Fast Food restaurants within a mile and half and The Domain and Arboretum Shopping is the same distance. Pick up the phone and call us. We are ready for another visit.

Our Second Home!

  • 5 of 5

Every year for the last 6 years we have stayed at this home in Austin from December through March. It is in a nice neighborhood with lots of good places nearby to eat. A short walk away is the library and about any shopping you would need. The house itself is great for us because it is fully equipped. We just pack our clothes, business stuff and hobby materials in the car and leave the cold and ice for the winter. Our whole family can sit down for a meal at the big dining table or in the booth in the kitchen. Our daughters and their families live in Austin and this house is in the middle of them. Bob is always good to us, and quick to take care of anything we need.

We will be back again this year!
