Gorgeous house, great location, lovely host

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this house don't do it justice. The inside is modern, spacious, with nice appliances and well-appointed furniture. I was initially unsure if I should rent this house compared to some other listings which had more of a luxury look. However, I was wrong about that, and was pleasantly surprised when I arrived to find the house with a carefully groomed lawn, nice paint, beautiful inside, etc etc.

The location is excellent. There is a convenience store about 2 minute walk away. Also you can walk to the park on the river (5 min walk) which has a huge outdoor pool and picnic tables etc. We also walked to Barton Springs (about a mile and a half) which is a bit further but definitely doable on a nice day. The 6th street downtown area is < $10 ride away with Lyft.

Hot tub is on the older side but is very large and was functioning at a prime 104 degrees. Master bedroom & bath is almost the size of the entire lower floor of the house - just the bedroom alone is probably 700 sq feet, and the bathroom is enormous & clean.

Michelle was easy to work with and responded to our questions almost immediately. Check in was super smooth. Thanks Michelle for making our stay so comfortable! I'd definitely stay here again next time I visit Austin.

yellow house in Austin

  • 4 of 5

Super location. Nice layout and awesome master bedroom and bath. Loved the big living area on main floor, access to garage and the upgraded kitchen. The home was too cluttered for us with personal belongings, clothes packed in closet (couldn't hang our own stuff) , items blocking way to get places (workout room), folded laundry, clothes and belongings in utility room. The towels provided were old and worn out at edges.

Spacious House with hot tub near downtown!

  • 5 of 5

A group of adults stayed at the Austin Yellow House and it was perfect! The pictures do not do the size of the house justice. We were so grateful to Michele for opening up her house to us. Downtown was just about 10mins away. There were 3 huge bedrooms (master upstairs, 2 bedrooms downstairs w/shared bathroom) and 2 extra air mattresses. Garage parking for 1 car and street parking is available. We really hope to rent again for our next visit to Austin!
