Convenient quiet neighborhood location

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 had a good weekend in Austin, visiting UT and sightseeing at Meadows Center and Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower gardens. House has three bedrooms and two bathrooms so plenty of room. I should have remembered to bring games from home, as we didn't find any except a box of dominoes. Closest HEB to the house is a bit small so we ended up shopping elsewhere to get what we wanted. Master bedroom mattress left my husband with sore back and I felt like I was sinking into a gap in it, so not the best night sleep.

Awosome home to stay at for out daughter’s graduation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay so much!!! Thank you Kelly for opening your home to is. The house is so spacious, comfortable, really well equipped and soooo conveniently located. It was perfect for us because we had family and friends in other places in town and gathered at the house for a couple of meals. The kitchen has everything you need and more, the singing of the birds in the morning is an awosome way to wake up and sitttong in the backyard was a very relaxing option. We specially enjoyed how spacious the house is, because there we’re 6 of us staying and we were not in each otger’s way at all. I highly recommend this home and will come back when we come back to Austin

Great location to explore Austin

  • 5 of 5

This house is ideally situated near the intersection of 290, I35, and 183 allowing you to get anywhere in the city in a matter of minutes. The house was very clean with plenty of space to spread out and relax. The taxi/uber ride to downtown was cheaper than parking would have been. Highly recommended, we hope to be back soon!

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was my 2nd girls weekend to stay here. The house is clean and the neighborhood is quaint and nice. The backyard is big and gives u a sense of privacy from the hustle and bustle of all the downtown areas. It’s wonderful to be able to come back and regroup or just have a stay in night. Highly recommend if stayin in Austin to do city stuff. A little off the beaten path. Which i love!! Def staying here again 😘
