Fantastic Temporary Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cute home for over a month while we were transitioning back to Austin. The home was so convenient and provided everything that we needed while we were settling. It was roomy and provided all of the conveniences that we were looking for. The location is perfect as we were able to walk over to Rainey Street to get a bite to eat, have a few drinks, or listen to live music. There is a fantastic vegan taco trailer down the street! We used the Hike and Bike Trail often and appreciate how easy it is to access the trail. We enjoyed many sunsets over Lady Bird Lake. The neighborhood park was a great place to meet people in the evenings as they were walking their dogs. The neighbors were friendly and came over to say hi to us. Carrie and her team were very responsive to any of our needs. Overall, this was a fantastic place to stay!

Conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I traveled to Austin to attend a convention. We added a few days more to our stay in order to get to know this area of Texas. Well, the weather at this time did not cooperate. But we were still able to enjoy the city and made a short day trip to Fredericksburg.

My husband had to work every day a few hours during our stay. This was absolutely no problem. The wifi connection worked perfectly, and the apartment is large enough to "spread out" and each of us was able to do what he wanted without bothering the other. Plus the kitchen is well equipped, a plus for me.

Carrie's house is perfectly located near downtown Austin and the parks. Within minutes walking we were at Rainey Street and all the action you can find there such as good food, drinks and live music. A little further and you are in the middle of downtown and its bustling streets and night life.

We enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you Carrie!

Loved the our stay at the birdhouse!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the house!! It was absolutely perfect for us and would love to have this house as our own!! The entire layout was perfect and had all of the amenities we could ask for. The location was killer and we could walk to every great attraction we wanted! We definitely intend to stay at this awesome place next time we are back in Austin.

Great home, lovely location!

  • 5 of 5

I brought my brother to Austin for his birthday and first trip to the city (my second). The house was very clean and perfectly set up when we arrived. Carrie's communication was excellent for all of our routine needs (parking, keys, wi-fi, etc.) and she provided us with a list of many fun things to do around Austin. The house itself was very nice and had everything we needed. It was the perfect size for 2 people, but would certainly be comfortable for 4 people. We were within a short walk from lots of great food & drink on Rainey street and an easy drive anywhere around town. I would absolutely recommend staying with Carrie for a fun time in Austin!

Convenient location, cute home

  • 5 of 5

Booked this property last minute for a wedding, and I couldn't have been happier with my stay. As described, the location is incredibly convenient to downtown and Rainey St. And it's walking distance to a great little coffee shop: Cenote.

The house has a lot of great light, a spacious kitchen, and a great & unique hallway closet that leads from the bedroom to the bathroom. And it's a short Uber rides to Franklin BBQ, the UT campus, and South Congress.

A Great House in a Perfect Location

Carrie's house is very central to SoCo, Rainey street and other great Austin locales. The house is well-appointed, very clean and Carrie is always responsive.
