About Daniel Huckaby

Born in California, but I got to Texas as soon as I could. Been living in Austin ever since I came down here to attend The University of Texas at Austin. I work in the bar industry, and I travel constantly, so I'm usually the tenant. I recently decided to try being the landlord for once. Let me know how I do. I'm not only here to help, I'm here to wow you with my city.

Daniel Huckaby purchased this house in 2014

Why Daniel Huckaby chose Montopolis

The home is a perfect location between the race track, Zilker park, Downtown, and the airport. Right in the middle yet separated enough for peace and quiet from the bustle of the city.

What makes this house unique

The backyard in this place is awesome, especially at night. If I lived in it, I would grill out back every night.

Awesome Property and Awesome Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our group really enjoyed the stay in Austin. The place was awesome with plenty of space and super close to everything we wanted to do. Everyone had a place to sleep and it was perfect for hanging out. Daniel was an excellent host and he was very helpful and understanding of all of our needs and requests. He was great to work with throughout the entire process. I definitely recommend it. Thanks!

Plenty of Room

  • 5 of 5

This house is great for a group. It has an open floor plan lower story and another living area up stairs with 3 bedrooms. We were there for a wedding and used the house as the prep area for the 10(!) bridesmaids and bride. We also were able to invite out-of-town family over for a meal and visiting. It was ideally suited for all of that.

Daniel was a great host. He let us check-in early and was prompt to respond to any questions.

Great location; clean property!

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean and had everything we needed. We had a large group staying with us and requested extra air mattresses. When we arrived, they were all set up and had additional sheets and blankets. One of the mattresses went flat, and Daniel was there immediately with a replacement. Excellent location. 12 minute Uber to 6th street and a 15 minute ride to South Congress.

Super responsive owner, super location, decent accommodations.

  • 4 of 5

Daniel was very quick with his communications, and if there had been any issues, I am confident he would have taken care of it pronto. The place is spacious, a little worn, but worked great for our group of 12 that stayed for 8 nights. The location may have been the highlight, as it centered to whatever your needs might be in Austin. Would definitely request to stay here again, thanks Daniel!!

Plenty of Space for our Family

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a great stay at the house. Plenty of bed space, nice setup for the living room, reasonable neighborhood very close to the airport, and only about 15 mins to downtown if thats what you're looking for.

For our short stay we had everything we needed. Dan was extremely responsive and even brought us a couple air mattresses with some extra blankets upon request. Not too many extra blankets and linens in the house, wasn't a huge deal for us but could be for those planning to use all beds including the trundle. I'm sure Dan would be happy to bring you some, we didn't ask because we had enough to make due. Master bedroom bed was extremely comfortable!!!

Washer was leaking water and we notified Dan who is working to fix that, again very responsive. Happy to stay in the house again and recommend for those looking for a nice place to stay with the essentials.
