About Eve

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.

Bon Voyage!

Clean and comfortable

  • 3 of 5

The house itself was clean and comfortable. The only downside was no cable and the kitchen was not stocked with basic amenities. The basket of “goodies” pictured was empty so I had to stock up on coffee, sugar, salt and pepper. I also had to provide my own toilet tissue and used my own laundry detergent to wash the last tenants sheets and towels. I had my husband bring me batteries for the remote. In the bedroom the closet door was padlocked so I had nowhere to hang my clothes. All in all, I wish it had been a better experience.

Owner's Response: I want to clarify that the guest did not have to wash the previous guest linen. Our rental is always professionally cleaned and we provide fresh clean linen and towels. You have access to high speed internet and Free Netflix to watch free movies, shows and more. We offered to bring new batteries and the guest insisted on buying her own. We always do our 100% to make everyone happy.

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!

Perfect for us!

  • 4 of 5

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!!!

Poor Cell signal. WiFi down. Burglary on Premises.

  • 1 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: I would like to make sure that our future guests understand that this review is stating inaccurate information. Our property was not robbed and it is secured. I want to reassure our guests that this property is located in one of Austin's best residential neighborhoods. The problem with WIFI and cable was caused by AT&T company. AT&T was having problems that day with few of their towers in the area and everything was fixed by the end of the day. The tenant and I contacted AT&T to make sure repairs would happen as fast as possible. Tower problems are obviously out of the owner's control. I am a very responsive host, will respond to call, text or email within the hour. I also reside in the area. The police never contacted the guest because nothing happened.
