About Amy Simoes

My name is Amy and I am originally from Michigan but moved to Texas as soon as I could! My husband, Luiz, is from Brazil and we have traveled and rented often. We have been in Austin for years are proud to call it home.

We have been renting our two properties (new #3975757 and #902733) for many years. Our rentals are closely managed by my husband and myself and we respond to all questions and concerns personally. We have high standards for what a rental should include and how it should be presented, so we make sure the properties appear upon your arrival as they are featured on the website. As a matter of fact, we often have guest arrive and claim that it is much better than they imagined.

We want you to feel at home during your stay and are happy to accommodate special requests, if possible (provide crock pot, Keruig, etc).

Please don't hesitate to let us know how we can make your stay more enjoyable. We look forward to your visit.

Amy Simoes purchased this house in 2008

Great weekend

  • 5 of 5

First let me say how great the owner Amy was. She went above and beyond to make sure our stay was great. Thanks Amy!! The house was perfect for our family get together. Accommodations were plenty for our 8. Lots of towels provided for our pool and jacuzzi time. It's in a quiet location with beautiful views. Be sure to check out Pieous and Jester King up the road.

Pretty pool and views but ...

  • 3 of 5

Overall we had a good time. The pool and the views are awesome!! The owner seemed responsive to questions. However, I the home could have been cleaner and less cluttered. I was also expecting something a bit nicer inside given the price.

This is a beautiful property.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had so much fun relaxed by the pool with an incredible view. We felt like we were far away from the city, but was within 5-10 from local Dripping Springs restaurant and activities. Amy was so easy to work with and checked in on us via text. I would stay at this property again and highly recommend to a family wishing to stay in this area. Such a beautiful property.

Very comfy house with a great upper deck and pool!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved staying at this house in the Hill Country! We mostly spent our time in the nice pool and the upper deck watching the beautiful view from the big hammock and the swing. The kitchen, living room and dining room area is also the perfect space to hang out.

There are plenty of beds and the layout of the house is very nice. The only drawback is that there are only 2 bathrooms. An additional half bath or full bath near the pool would be perfect.

Bachelorette in Austin!

  • 5 of 5

This house was great! We had a group of 12 stay here for a bachelorette for the weekend. You can't beat the pool area and there was plenty of seating room upstairs for everyone to hang out. The house isn't too close to neighbors, so while we were aware of our noise/music level outdoors, it wasn't an issue. It was very clean when we got there, and fully stocked with the necessary amenities. Definitely had some Texas funky décor to get you in the mood for Austin! The kitchen was also wonderful and fully stocked with anything and everything we needed to cook meals. We also appreciated how there were plenty of extra mattresses that we could put down in the rooms for extra sleeping space. Amy was a pleasure to work with and was very responsive with anything I texted her throughout the weekend. My only advice for anyone looking to stay here is to consider the location-- while it was ideal for us because we wanted to spend a lot of time at the pool, it was a 30 minute drive to downtown Austin or the Lake Austin docks. It's a nice drive and wasn't a big deal for my group because we had rented our own cars/party bus to get around most of the time, but it's something to consider if you're relying on taxis. Overall, we had a blast and would definitely recommend this house to any large groups!
