A great place to hang out in Austin...

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location for visiting Austin. You are pretty much a 5-10 minute drive from any of the tons of great restaurants, 6th Street nightlife, University of Texas, etc. Will recommend to anyone. Gary, the owner is a great guy who is kind enough to rent this great house. Will certainly be back.

The Perfect Austin Abode

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and had every amenity we needed. It provided a great, contemporary atmosphere for our stay in Austin, and the fairly central location was convenient (close to both downtown and East Austin bars/restaurants, as well as the UT campus). Also, Gary's responsiveness and guidance regarding our Austin trip was a huge plus! We would definitely recommend staying here if you're looking for a fun time in the great city of Austin.

Perfect Austin Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Simply put – love this vacation rental! Spacious and modern but very comfortable – perfect for couples or for a getaway with friends.

Quiet, central and well-appointed with modern amenities and luxuries. Extremely convenient to the Austin airport and to the heart of East Austin - one of the hottest areas for the latest buzz-worthy restaurants, craft-cocktail bars, coffee shops and live music.

The owner was very attentive and helpful – made this a perfect trip away from home. Highly recommend for anyone considering Austin!

A+ vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

The house was awesome! The neighborhood was beyond spectacular! I would definitely stay ONLY here when I stay in Austin again!

Did you ever watch HGTV and wonder what it would be like to live in one of those modern designs? Here's your chance! This is the coolest place I have ever stayed in all my travels. It's truly a treat to experience such unusual living quarters. The entire neighborhood will put a smile on your face. Each house is different and a great way!

The location is perfect. Just a hop, skip, and jump to downtown. If you walk the neighborhood at night you will get a spectacular view of downtown...and you need to see the buildings! Amazing highrises!

Gary is a super person to deal with. He immediately becomes a friend in Austin; guiding you to the best eateries in the area as well as the live music scene Austin is so famous for. (I highly recommend Antone's. Everybody plays there!)

If you get a chance to come to Austin you absolutely must stay at Gary's.

There was one small problem I should won't want to go back to your 'normal' looking house!

Next time I'm heading south I know right where to stay!
