Beautiful and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

Carrie was such a great host. The house is beautiful and was close to everything we needed to do. Despite having to stay in Austin for a dear friends memorial service this house and Carrie made everything simple and a memorable weekend we will never forget. Thank you for your graciousness and for letting us stay in your beautiful home.

Roomy, quiet, clean, well stocked - LOVED IT!!!

  • 5 of 5

We went to Austin with our daughter and her boyfriend for a softball tournament. It rained pretty much every day which was a bummer for the tournament but having this lovely home to hang out in made the trip fun anyway.

What we loved most about this property was its great location - on an acre, but very close to everything. It was clean and quiet; plenty of room for the five of us, beautiful plants and flowers surrounded the house - goats, a pig and a goose visited every day.

The kitchen was extremely well stocked, the beds were very comfortable. There is a family room off the kitchen as well as a living room. There are decks off both floors for sitting and enjoying the peace and quiet. We were sad to leave; it was just wonderful.

Beautiful property

The house has a great view of downtown Austin. Fantastic outdoor space. You feel like you are in the country but still get to be a 10 minute ride from the city.
