This property is so close to downtown and next to the best golfing and shopping in Austin. The views are jaw dropping and the location is peaceful. You'll see deer and rabbits around just at dusk/dawn daily.
Top of North Cat Mountain and some of the most breath taking views in Texas. It the 1980's this house was the highest elevated (900 ft above sea level) in all of Austin. It only takes 10 minutes to get to downtown Austin. Easy.
Me and my friends had a wonder time. Ryan, the host was very helpful and responsive.
I only took a star off because some of the furniture was broken (only noticeable once the furniture was moved.)
If I have a large group staying in Austin again, I will definitely consider starting again.
First of all, Ryan was a fantastic host. We didn’t have many questions but when we did he always answered immediately. My family and I had a wonderful vacation at his beautiful home. It was a quick ten minute ride to downtown Austin but we actually enjoyed The Arboretum and The Domain even more than downtown. Top Golf is less than ten minutes away. Bull Creek is just below the house and a great park for kids to play. We loved the home, the views, and the amenities were exactly as advertised. It was hard to get them to leave the amazing property! The home was immaculate and everything was clean, in order, and was easy to find. I will be sure to tell my friends and recommend this stunning vacation rental. My family and I will be coming back again soon. Thanks again Ryan!
We had an absolutely amazing time! My favorite part was definitely the wrap around patio off of the master bedroom. A close second was the kitchen and gas grill. I had packed of box of kitchen essentials, but we didn't even have to take it out of the car. The kitchen was fully stocked with high quality pans and utensils. The kids got a kick out of the Jacuzzi. The beds were comfortable and the decor downstairs is very warm and inviting. We couldn't have asked for a better place to vacation and we will definitely be returning in the future!
The house was bigger than advertised, with great views in a quiet neighborhood. I was traveling with a large group of family members, and Ryan couldn't have been nicer or more attentive. This booking is highly recommended!
I chose this house because I wanted a space large enough to accommodate my entire family, while also being close to downtown Austin. I was not disappointed! The house is awesome. High ceilings, great furnishings, Jacuzzi, ping pong, etc. It really feels like a home away from home. The kids way more space to play than they do at our house. The adults really enjoyed the absurd views and multiple lounge / entertaining areas. Ryan was super easy to work with and made the whole stay smooth and inviting. I really can't think of a single thing wrong with our stay or this house. In fact, this was definitely the best VRBO experience I've ever had. 10/10!
Every year I rent a different house to spend holidays with my family.
The positive thing about this house is that it is quite spacious.
The negative was:
- On arrival we noticed very little cleaning in the house (the towels had hair, the sheets were not clean, they had stains)
- the house was messy (in the kitchen the utensils were messy and it was difficult to find something to cook with. The stove did not work properly).
- We struggled with the heating because it was turned off and several members of the family were cold at night ...
- The house has rooms for 18 people to sleep in but the kitchen and dining rooms have no where near enough space for all. 8 people can sit down to eat at most in either room.
The worst part of the experience was when, in the middle of breakfast, several strangers just walked into the house, they didn't ring the doorbell or knock, they just barged in to "fix the air conditioning". This was a total violation of our privacy. These repairs should have been made before our arrival.
A positive thing was that Ryan Nacol (the person in charge of the house) was very friendly.
Boating on Lake Austin: An added bonus is the dock at Pennybacker bridge is only 3minutes away (.5 miles) from the house. You can pick everyone up at the bridge docking station (there is parking there too).
