Treehouse Treasure!

  • 5 of 5

We totally loved our stay in the treehouse! Spent lots of time on the patio enjoying the trees. The house is clean. The beds are comfortable. There was plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen was convenient and well stocked. We will definitely stay there if we have the opportunity again.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We were in Austin for our niece's wedding and this house was in the perfect location. It was only a few minutes from the venue and there were many restaurants and parks nearby. The house was very quiet at night. Enjoyed being surrounded by trees listening to birds and watching squirrels play.

Nicely remodeled

  • 4 of 5

Our family, including our adult children, enjoyed our stay in Austin. This property is older, but had been remodeled with some nice details. It's in a nice, residential area, close to many restaurants, Zilker park, and an easy drive to the airport or downtown. We used the large floor fan provided in the master for white noise - this home lacks heavy doors or insulated windows, so outside noise (nearby train crossing) was bothersome at night. Sally responded quickly to any concerns and we recommend you give the treehouse a try!

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

Great location! Very comfortable accommodations for our group of six. It is truly like a treehouse...located aat the end of a cul de sac, adds to the privacy. And easy acces to all that Austin has to offer! The owners were also extremely accomadating to our schedule of family members arriving at different times of the day. They allowed us to come in early to set up a family luncheon, and had no problem w/ us departing later than scheduled. Highly recommend this property for your Austin visit! Also, if you like to join in on the 'party' atmosphere that is Austin with no worries, be sure to sign up with LYFT, as UBER has a very low profile in Austin. LYFT was extremely easy and fast in getting our group around town and safely home.Have fun on your next visit to Austin, and stay here!!
