The house was perfect. There was plenty of room for our guests, and to entertain in the evenings. The kitchen was well stocked. There was a problem with the water heater in the basement apartment, and management responded quickly and took care of it.

The Perfect Venue for Family Gathering in Old Austin

  • 5 of 5

Surrounded by stately homes in a historic old Austin neighborhood, the Carpe Diem impressed and delighted all who stayed and visited over the weekend. Beautifully decorated-quality towels and linens- well-stocked kitchen-it was a weekend of 5 star luxury. With ample floaties supplied, the kids loved the pool, slide, swings, and in-ground trampoline, while parents relaxed on the patio and the old folks enjoyed the show from the screened in porch. The Guest House was gorgeous, the basement suite was hip and groovy, and the attic was every kid's fantasy. The only downside was the parking. We were told, in addition to the driveway, we would be given 3 parking passes for cars on the street (since there's no parking on the street without them) We received only one parking pass without much explanation and without apology from the rental company. Don't promise something and then not deliver. That almost changed the review rating. Also, from the listing, we were confused about how many bedrooms there were and where they were all located. Better organization and description on the listing would be helpful.

Owner's Response: Hi Debbie, Thanks so much! It was great hosting you and your family. Our apologies about the parking passes. A previous guest must have accidentally taken them. We are working to remedy this issue. Again, thanks so much! Take care:)
