Charming, perfect location, excellent amenities

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this rental, and will be staying there again anytime I'm in Austin. The location is excellent - nice and quiet, but still centrally located. The amenities are excellent - kitchen with a stocked mini fridge, newly renovated bathroom, wifi and TV with streaming device. The owner was very friendly and generous, and the chickens and roosters are so charming. Can't say enough nice things about this place, I loved it!

Great location and welcoming host

  • 5 of 5

We stayed four nights in this comfortable lower level of a beautiful older home in a quiet neighborhood close to UT. Clean and updated yet still with character. The bed was very comfortable and our hosts provided ample beverages and bath essentials (no hair dryer). Situated next to a small golf course with running trail and less than a half mile from grocery and our favorite coffee/bakery (Quack). The chickens and rooster are so fun - light sleepers may not appreciate them but we really didn't notice. Will return!

Really cute place in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and warm house with everything you could possibly need for your stay. The bottle of wine was a nice touch as well. Great bathroom fully stocked with toiletries and very comfortable bed. Loved having the chickens and roosters on the property. Lots of fun!

What a Find!

  • 5 of 5

When I rented the "bungalow" I thought it sounded too good to be true. This was not the case. Brandi was a gracious host and gave us many suggestions of what to do while in Austin. We enjoyed sitting in the yard while being entertained by her flock of chickens. The accommodations were excellent. The rooms were tastefully decorated, clean as a whistle, and believe everything you read about the comfortable bed. She even provided us with a bottle of wine and a variety of other beverages to enjoy at our leisure. If this place is available, book it!

Amazing location for SXSW!!

  • 5 of 5

This little house is so adorable and what a great location! A quick trip to downtown or to any of the Austin attractions. We went to several bars & concerts for SXSW, lots of great restaurants, the Austin Zoo, we walked around the University of Texas campus - all lots of fun. The owners provided everything we needed and more! And we could not get over how awesome the chickens husband now wants to build a coop back at home!!
