Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Great place. Very responsive and thoughtful owners. Our family of five (three children under the age of 6) stayed here for a week. The house had everything we needed, and the location was very convenient for the places we visited in and around Austin.

Great place, super clean and recently updated. Plenty of room for 6. Less than 10min to downtown

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed the stay. Three couples (6 people) and plenty of room. Really easy check in/out process. Everything updated, and everything you might need in the kitchen or bathroom is included. 1 king and 2 queen beds. Less than 10 min to downtown and right off I35. Only downside could’ve been the 1 bathroom but it was not a problem for us at all. We would def stay here again if visiting the Austin area.

We stayed for the long weekend and found this place to be perfect. Quite neighborhood, nice to walk around. Close to downtown. 3 bedrooms, a fenced in backyard and all the equipment you need to cook and be comfortable.

We had a fabulous stay.

Super cute and very accommodating!

  • 5 of 5

My sisters, friends, and I loved this super cute modern home for our relaxing getaway! It was in such a nice and quiet area of town, not too far away from all of the attractions Austin has to offer! The house is very accommodating even with only one bathroom for five girls! We will definitely be coming back!

Great Austin Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! The home is lovely and very spacious. We stayed the weekend that Hurricane Harvey hit Texas (thankfully Austin was Ok). Gary was great with giving us local information about the weather and keeping in touch. He even offered us a full refund if we decided not to chance it. We would definitely stay here again-just a great place!
