Fantastic in every way

  • 5 of 5

Ideal Location near all the fun outdoor activities including Barton springs, Zilker Park, Lady Bird Lake. And, near the great restaurants and bars, music...loved the coffee shop/bar on Barton Springs. It's easy to get to all the other hot spots in town too as it's centrally located and just a cheap ride on Fasten to Rainey street or SoCo. Place itself was so clean, beds super comfy, lots of towels, and Sally the host left a great bottle of wine for us. The interior was bright, clean and decorated in a tasteful way. Patios were nice too. Sally made everything so easy and even extended checkout when my flight was delayed. This place was 5 stars all they way. Thank you Sally...hope to be back someday soon!!!

The BEST location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this cute, little condo! The location is truly wonderful as it is so close to everything great around the Zilker park area. Also, the owner is seriously so wonderful to work with! Hands down the best renting experience I have encountered.

Quiet, clean, nice outdoor spaces

  • 4 of 5

Quiet little cul-de-sac street with a tiny stream in the back. I would come home late and it was very safe, easy parking in the driveway. My only complaint is the A/C kept kicking on and making me wake up (sleeping in a strange place is hard). Nice to have 2 sinks and a separate bathroom & closet area. Outdoor seating areas were relaxing. Wish I had a chance to enjoy the wine Sally left!
