Charming house

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this property for a long weekend a few weeks ago. The house itself isn't that large, but if you plan on being active and being out on the town, it works perfectly for a group of 4 (two couples). The owners are extremely friendly/ helpful and even personally went back to the house to get a bag of jewerly I left, and dropped it off downtown!- So very nice. I will say that we had a few cab drivers tell us to be careful in this area at night, but we 'Ubered' everywhere and did not have any problems or see anyone loitering around the house/ cemetary. The house itself was also very quiet.

I brought my daughters to Drake concert at the Erwin center and it worked out perfect. I definitely would stay at this charming home again. It is next to the city center yet peaceful and quit.

The home is located in a very quiet location. It was very clean, very comfortable and had everything you could possibly need. The owner is extremely nice and quick to answer any questions.

Beautiful and Cool

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nicely decorated. The bed was comfortable and the place was very clean. It had everything we need and a great air conditioner. The temperatures were about 100 while we were there and the air conditioner kept us nice and cool. We stayed a night in a hotel in Houston before going to Austin and the air conditioner could not cool the room.

This house has been completely redone inside.

Just OK

  • 3 of 5

Overall, the house is just ok. It was cute & clean on the inside, the location was easy. The furniture is somewhat worn & the beds were eh. But that didn't bother us as much as the outside. It is in desperate need of lawn maintenance. The overgrown shrubs made it difficult to even see the house from the street. It really does look like an abandoned property. We had no problem with the adjacent cemetery...those neighbors were quiet unlike the group of skaters that showed up to use the ramp directly across the street. Yes, they were loud but they also knew no boundaries, hanging out in front of the property's fence and leaning against our cars. We could have said something but thought it easier to let it go. Later that evening, a few couples showed up on the corner looking for a little private time. They quickly dispersed once they saw us. I think if the house looked lived in & cared for from the outside, you probably wouldn't have that kind of traffic.
