I am French Canadian, I traveled the world and love to make people feel like home! I moved to the Austin area in 2012 from Seattle and I absolutely love the Texas sunshine. My favorite travel destination was Anguilla for the beaches, the people and how relax life was out there! I am a big fan of healthy food, fitness and having a healthy lifestyle for myself and my family. I am also a blogger about health, nutrition and fitness: drfitfrenchy
As a host, I will always do my best to respond to your request and make you the happiest guest! I do not live on premises, I am on a ranch North of the city, but you can reach me anytime.
Love the area!!
Quiet and fantastic area and still Downtown Austin....Best of both world!
This is a cute comfortable house in a great location. Good fenced in yard if you travel with your pet ...
Pics are accurate ! The leasor was nice, quick to respond and very accommodating !
The place is convenient to i35 and downtown, and being able to use the storage shed to drop off stuff or leave stuff while checking out was great. Awesome and quick communication with owner as well!
We had such a wonderful stay and we cannot thank you enough! We just moved to Austin from Iowa so we were looking for a convenient location for me, my husband and our dog. This place was perfect! It came with everything we needed, a great yard for our pup and an extremely convenient location. I also needed to be able to work from the location too... The internet connection was super fast to support my needs so that was awesome too! If ever needed, we would stay here again and we would definitely recommend this to anyone else looking as well!!!
Zero Stars. Took a chance on a place with no reviews-big mistake.
I will not participate in writing a fraudulent positive review, subjecting a future renter to potential harm just for a partial refund. Obvious security breaches exist allowing for vulnerability of renter's safety and belongings.
Premises are not secured. Poor to non existent phone reception. WiFi that goes down. After a week, a storage walk in (approx 70 ft from my unit) was broken into during daylight. I did not feel safe there alone after that (Unit B renters were checking out next day). I regularly had no phone signal (could only make calls outside on street). Was there to work, did not want risk of expensive gear stolen or harm to my small dogs, whether I’m there or not. Had 2 days of no wifi, spent chunk of an entire day w/AT&T directly (as per owner) in order to reboot.
Owner resides very far away, w/ a hands off approach re: Real problems, jeopardizing renter's safety and belongings. I called owner right after incident, response was to send a cleaning lady to inspect. I urged Austin Police Dept was a better idea. I requested to have APD also contact me. Wanted to clue them in that I was there alone at night with no indoor phone signal to call my husband or 911 in event of further breaking & entering. Serious dilemma. She relayed they didn’t need to speak with me. At this point, some reassurance would’ve been nice. Did not hear back from owner again that evening. I decided to go somewhere safe and not have to worry about another bad incident.
Checked into hotel that allowed dogs on short notice.
Owner challenges guests “interepretation” of event. I came upon commotion as Unit B guys busted robber who soon made getaway onto nearby main road.
I saw for myself damage done on door of walk in and its contents. The perpetrator ripped the hardware right off the door with lock still intact. I would not be able to describe interior and contents unless I could open previously locked door and look inside.
Needless to say - got no work done, have many added expenses, endured much stress. I've used Home Away before many times without incident. This was a horrible experience. I cannot recommend this to anyone.
