We rented this property for a month and everything was exactly as stated. It is an easy walk to Zilker Park and Lady Bird Lake.

Sally was so friendly and always available for any questions I had and anyone that choose this property will def not be disappointed.

If I ever come back to Austin this is certainly where I will stay.

Nice Quiet Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The rooms were clean, and very comfortable. We did not feel like we were in the middle of Austin. Nice quiet getaway. This place was perfect for the weekend stay and would recommend/come back again.

Quiet and perfectly located. Great place to stay while doing Austin!

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting Austin for a prospective student tour. Only being in town for two days we had planned on just getting a hotel, but I'm happy we decided to stay here instead. House was well thought out and all the creature comforts you might require were at hand. We even got a waterfall out back from the runoff creek due to the rain as a bonus. We enjoyed our stay here and will definitely be back again. Thanks to Sally and Scott for having us.

Great location and beautiful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This place was great with easy access to Zilker walking trail within mins. Great for morning walks. Obviously location is fantastic for trying out all the food Austin has to offer. We loved relaxing in the small backyard. The sound of running water in the background was soothing.

The rooms were clean, modern and comfortable. I also liked the mini covered patios on each floor. This place was perfect for the weekend stay and would recommend/come back again.
