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.

average rating of 4.625 based on 16 reviews

Great location and neighborhood. Loved the floor plan of the unit.

  • 3 of 5

We were very disappointed in the cleanliness of the unit. The shower curtain in the hall bath was VERY mildewy and moldy. Throw rugs in all bathrooms were filthy. Luckily there is a washer and dryer in the unit... Kitchen was so-so. Very eclectic mix of utensils, etc. Plus for a unit that sleeps 6 there were not enough chairs for the dining table.

Very quiet and nicely equipped

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our weekend at this very cute townhouse. It is nicely equipped with everything one needs. There are even some toys for kids, which was awesome. It is really a cute neighborhood and house. We saw some people walking around the neighborhood, but it is very quiet. The only reason we didn't give 5 stars is that the beds are very hard. We had a hard time sleeping because of that. The carpets are in need of a good cleaning or being replaced, as well. I didn't want to walk on them without socks.

Owner's Response: Hi Wynne, thank you for your review. We are very sorry that you did not sleep well! It is important to us that our guests are able to be comfortable in our home. This is the first that we have heard that our beds are too firm, but will take your critique seriously. Also, sorry that you did not think our carpets were clean! We have our place professionally cleaned and turned over before each guest. Light beige carpets are not very forgiving though. Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We are grateful for the feedback.

Kid friendly and Clean!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great and the owners were too! We traveled with 2 toddlers and my mom and it was a great setup with everything we needed. The house was close to Lamar/I-35 and 183 so in a perfect location.

It felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six (three couples) flew to Austin for a 4 night stay to visit our daughter who lives there. The three bedroom, 2 1/2 bath townhouse worked perfectly for us! We each enjoyed the comfortable space in the living areas. We watched TV, played games, read books, and started each day with a fresh pot of coffee. The beautiful neighborhood was a great place for our daily walks and runs. It was also very convenient to the train station, resturants and a small grocery store. The townhouse was just as described online and everything we hoped it would be. We will definitely stay here again when visiting Austin.

Perfect for our trip!

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of three parents and two high school seniors. We came to Austin and toured visit three different colleges back to back. The location was perfect - we got to downtown Austin in 15 minutes (at 8:30 AM) without having to get on a freeway! It was my understanding that there were 2 bathrooms, but there was a surprise half bath that I didn't expect. It make getting ready in the morning easier with two teens. There is a great local spot for pizza in the neighborhood. Ample parking if you have several vehicles. Although we didn't need it, this rental is ready for families with small kids - all the safety features you need. The house was spotless! We will remember this place and stay here again when we are in the area. We all appreciated a great place to land after long days of walking and driving. The neighborhood is peaceful at night and the house seems to be well insulated, so no noise from next door. Now if the kids will just make a decision about school (sigh......).
