About Kevin or Mindy Lloyd

Kevin is from the Midwest, and Mindy is a native Texan who was nomadic for about ten years before returning back here to her roots. We love to cook, host friends and family, and be outside. Kevin and Mindy have two very dynamic toddlers.

Kevin or Mindy Lloyd purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Kevin or Mindy Lloyd chose Austin

Our family has traveled and lived in several places around America, Europe, and Asia. The most consistent gift we had in each of these places was having a great place to return, gather, and rest. We set up our home so that it might be this kind of place for you and your group. Our home is in a convenient location off a main street in Austin, yet in a quiet development. The home is furnished in a way that is meant for people to live and rest in it!

What makes this townhome unique

We are a 5 minute walk from the train and several main bus lines. If you are coming in town for a big event and do not want to deal with the traffic, the ample public transportation options will be your ideal friend during your stay! Any event at the convention center (i.e., SXSW Tech), UT, or a desire to get to any restaurant district makes this place a tourist's dream.

Perfect family get away!

Love this place! This Christmas was our second time renting this home. It is a kid friendly home and neighborhood. The owners even had a Christmas tree up when we arrived! It's close to restaurants and has a park nearby for children. Kevin and Mindy are so accommodating. We definitely plan to rent this property again!

What a great time my friends and I had. We had an awesome experience in Austin and Mindy was so quick to reply with our reservation. There is no reason for us to look for another location on our next stay in Austin. Thank you!

Lovely family friendly home in family friendly neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

This home is in a darling quiet neighborhood. We liked the location as well. If you have a bunch of TV watchers there is only one, and a small couch but it's also good to have some quiet time with your family or friends here. Over all a good place to stay, it is a very kid friendly family friendly neighborhood, perfect for skate boards bikes and walking.

This home was beautiful, nicely decorated, and had everything we needed. The neighborhood is nice and newly developed. The check in and check out processes were easy. All in all, a great stay.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was clean and spotless when we arrived, and all amenities were provided as listed, plus a few more not on the list that were helpful to our stay. The air conditioning worked well in the 100 degree heat! Excellent location in north Austin and was very convenient to Lamar St., shopping and major highways. The neighborhood is new and quiet with some nice park areas to the south. Plenty of parking off-street. I highly recommend this!

Cozy house at prime location

  • 4 of 5

We totally enjoyed the house. The owner was so easy to deal with. It pretty much had everything that we needed and the location was very close to most things. We went to Austin for my son's graduation and the house was very close to the campus. I would stay there again as needed. The reason I did not put a 5 stars was because there was no TV in the living room, but that was just my personal preference. Plus there were some pet hair leftover on the carpet that caused me to sneeze a few time, again personal allergy problem, but no biggie. Everything else was very clean and well designed.

Owner's Response: Thank you Doris! We were very happy to host you and your family for your son's graduation. Apologies for the pet hair that we didn't catch. We will be more diligent about this in the future! We would love for you to stay in our home again on your next visit.
