About Valerie Granoff

Joel and Valerie are fortunate to occupy this beautiful, remodeled contemporary home. Valerie attended the University of Texas and didn't leave and Joel joined her as an Austinite in 2000. We have 3 wonderful boys that range in age from 6-21. We love the outdoors, our 3 laying hens and beautiful orange trees and vegetable garden. Our favorite way to spend the evening is grilling on the deck, swimming and watching the sun set over the hills!

Valerie Granoff purchased this house in 2003

Why Valerie Granoff chose Austin

We couldn't resist the incredible backyard with the beautiful view, orange tree and serenity of trees and hills. We take great pride in our organic garden, fruit trees and landscape. Our property is alive year-round with seasonal blooms, herbs & veggies and yes fresh eggs and oranges from late Nov through early Jan! We purchased and remodeled our home with family and entertaining in mind. There's great flow between the rooms yet plenty of space to slip away to for private time. Our home's central location puts is just 15 or so from most of Austin's hot spots.

Great home

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding views, wonderful kitchen, comfortable home. We loved the pool and it is fenced with a gate that is only easy for an adult to open. We had no trouble keeping the house cool by lowering the shades on the veranda. Good hosts. Would recommend to a friend.

Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to stay here for our family trip to Austin. The house is beautifully decorated and maintained and Valerie, our host, was very accomodating and attentive to our needs. The popcorn welcome basket was a sweet surprise and we enjoyed the fresh eggs fro their kitchen. I would definitely recommend this house to others. It is close to stores, shopping and restaurants but feels tucked away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Great girls trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had an wonderful time!!! The house and view are fabulous!!! Valerie and Joel are so accommodating and were always available to answer any questions we had. Our only drawback was that the house had a hard time cooling down so at times we were slightly uncomfortable. Other than that tiny issue we had an absolute blast!!!

Perfection On ALL Fronts!

  • 5 of 5

Having rented several properties in the past via HomeAway, I really have to say that out of all of them, Valerie & Joel's home was my best experience yet. Pictures & other reviews simply do not do it justice. From the moment we arrived, it was clear Valerie & Joel take the utmost pride in sharing their beautiful Austin oasis with eager travelers like myself and company. Between the lovely welcome packet (with all the important info one might need about the house AND Austin itself), the complimentary bottle of rouge, the home's design & decor (truly a user-friendly, gorgeous house!), and overall cleanliness & comfortability, it was as if I had arrived at a close friend's abode for the weekend. My favorite part upon arriving, however, was walking out onto the back patio and down toward the pool deck. The VIEW overlooking the sprawling hills to the west in unparalleled. I used to live in Los Angeles and this felt like similar landscape, minus the smog. ;-) Mornings were spent on the back patio enjoying breakfast we cooked in THE best-equipped kitchen I've seen in awhile. Every evening we were able to enjoy a stunning summer sunset while lounging in and out of the pool, and later on, we caught a taxi 16-18 minutes south into downtown Austin where we were (and are STILL) completely blown away by the character of this special city. It's hard to sum up how much we loved our experience, so I'll leave off with the fact that my husband and I are already discussing relocationg in Austin one day–and when we do, Valerie & Joel's home and location is the epitome of what we will seek for ourselves.

Amazing house in Austin!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just had a girls weekend (9 of us) in Austin and stayed here and the house was perfect! Valerie was so great to work with for booking our stay and so accommodating with our group. The house is gorgeous, has a really nice pool, a 15 min cab ride or drive to downtown, and in a really nice neighborhood. There is also a grocery store and liquor store just a mile away which was perfect for picking up stuff to grill at the house. The backyard is awesome and the view from the deck is amazing! Would absolutely recommend staying here if you are a group looking for a really nice house close to downtown Austin!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

My family and a few extended family met here to celebrate a graduation and couldn't have had a better time and perfect place. It is well appointed without being fussy, easy flow floor plan, the view is incredible and the fresh eggs were a welcome perk! The owners were extremely helpful and available by text when we had a question.
