About Christin Braeuer

My husband is a native Austinite and I moved here when we got engaged. It didn't take long before I fell in love with my new home, and I hope I never have to move away. Austin is a beautiful city with so many outdoor activities, music venues, good bars and restaurants, an incredible art scene, not to mention the diverse array of good people.

Christin Braeuer purchased this house in 2010

Why Christin Braeuer chose Texas

We are thrilled to live in a beautiful and safe neighborhood with such great amenities without sacrificing proximity to downtown or the outdoor activities all along Lady Bird Lake.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with our open floor plan and floor-to-ceiling windows. It is perfect for our young family and is for great entertaining. Immediate access to Barton Creek and the Austin Greenbelt (20-min hike to Twin Falls) makes for incredible weekend diversions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time in Austin, Mike and Christin were great hosts and the house fit our large group very well. Overall, we had a great experience and we are all looking forward to the next trip already.

Family Friendly Rental

Great location in a quiet neighborhood with easy access to downtown and South Austin. The house had a nice play area for the kids and kitchen/living room area were spacious and made for a great place to relax. We enjoyed our stay here and would rent this property again.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Great house, very clean with all the necessary amnities and much more as the owners usually live there. If you have children, there are all the toys you can dream off. Location is very quiet, pool is walking distance and center of austin is about 15-20 minutes away. Perfect match for us!

Perfect surprise bday getaway....

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Mike and Christin for allowing us to stay in your comfortable clean home. It was the perfect size to accommodate all 9 of us and we particularly enjoyed the gift basket upon arrival. We appreciate how quickly you got back to us in answering our questions and I hope we weren't too rowdy for this lovely peaceful neighborhood. Thanks again..........

Great home, great renting experience!

  • 5 of 5

Mike and Christin were great hosts! They went out of their way to make sure that me and my 16 guests had a great stay. They bought extra air mattresses and left a gift basket for us, among many other things, upon our arrival. They have a beautiful home that's very clean, open and has wonderful decorations and color schemes. They did their very best to make sure we all felt at home and that we had everything that we could possibly need. This was my first time renting a home and it was such a wonderful experience that I'll be sure to do it again. Mike and Christin put all my fears at ease and I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking to rent in the area. Very flexible and gracious hosts.

PERFECT LOCATION ACL, SXSW, and F1! Just 10 minutes from downtown and Zilker Park, 15 minutes from the famous 6th Street and other SXSW venues. Also, since we are South Austin, we are a great location for F1. We are close enough to all these events to get there in a short amount of time, but not so close that you will be all jammed up with traffic. We are the perfect location right off the intersection of 2 major highways, with quick access to both, yet tucked away by the environmentally-protected Green Belt, providing natural beauty and quiet calm.

Our neighborhood has 2 full-size pools, several tennis courts, 3 basketball court, 2 full-size playgrounds, along with numerous hiking and biking trails. We also back up to the Green Belt allowing you to walk down to Twin Falls to play in the river or just hike/bike around the myriad trails there.
