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!!!

Comfortable, clean, great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great experience. The house was clean with nice little extras like comfy beds, super towels and coffee. The location is quiet and private, but so close to everything we wanted to do. We were visiting my daughter and will certainly look to book this property again for our next trip!

Everything you need right here

  • 5 of 5

Great place in a great location. House has about everything you need for a comfortable stay. We stayed for 6 days while on vacation. As a family of four with two little kids (4 & almost 2) we were a little nervous being away from home. This house was perfect. Loved having two floors so husband and I could relax after kids went to bed. Wish we could have enjoyed the outdoor spaces more but we were busy seeing friends and visiting all the sights. Highly recommend and we would return.
