                            Carolyn & Bob did everything they could to make our Feb/Mar visit pleasant, although the weather was abnormally cold and rainy. The neighborhood is nice, with lots of walkers. There was a feeling of privacy, and our young grand daughter's adventurous activities seemed to be graciously accepted. The 2 bedroom arrangement suited us well. We hope to return for a stay again.

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, people with disabilities, families with young children.

                            Don’t miss out on this lovely, custom-built home. The pictures don’t quite do it justice. We stayed over Christmas 2013, perfectly content. The home was ideal for our family of 4, one of whom is a wheelchair user. This is universal design at its finest – you don’t need to be a wheelchair user to appreciate the generous hallways, spacious shower, and other features that are naturally integrated into this very appealing space, but these features certainly worked exceptionally well for us. The home is well-maintained, very nicely appointed and clean, located in a lovely suburban neighborhood. It felt like our private oasis – one from which it was a breeze to get wherever we wanted to go. Owners Bob and Carolyn are absolutely delightful; we so enjoyed meeting them. If we return to Austin, we’ll be back with Bob and Carolyn at Venado Drive!

                            Owner response: What a joy it was to have your family with us for Christmas. We loved meeting everyone and Carolyn and I are so appreciative of the wonderful honey and cookies. We are so happy to know how the home met your needs. We want all of our travelers to feel welcome. Please do come again.

                            We recently stayed in the property during a renovation of our Austin home. I can tell you that the home owners went above and beyond in accommodating my family during what was already a stressful time. The property is stunning and my kids were thrilled with the enormous back yard and the playtime afforded. The accommodations are immaculately maintained and it was fantastic to have a garage during our stay. The neighborhood and the neighbors are great and my kids got a daily kick out of watching the deer roaming the neighborhood yards. Our renovation, not surprisingly, took longer than anticipated and the owners accommodated us at every turn. When we had to leave the property for a few days due to a previous booking, we were even able to stay in another, nearby property that Bob owned for a few days. The experience couldn't have been any smoother. I'd highly recommend this property for both the place itself as well as its owners. Both are five star.

                            Owner response: Brian, We loved seeing you and your wife playing with your children in our backyard. Our five year old grandson also enjoyed playing with your children when he was over for a visit. We so enjoyed being able to help during a remodeling project that would not end. A lovely family.

                            This place and the owners, made us feel welcome and exceeded our expectations! The accommodations are well appointed & designed for any family needing a two bedroom, 2 bath vacation home. We are seniors, it met our particular needs better than any vacation home we have ever stayed in. The twin beds in the suite are marvelous! The kitchen offers EVERY dish, tableware or cooking utensil you will need! The courtyard and atrium are a beautiful place to enjoy the beautifully landscaped yards! A cold front came through while we were in Austin, which added to our enjoyment!

                            This home was the perfect place for me to stay several months . It was immaculate ! And so warm and homey. Lovely neighborhood to take long walks, minutes from the grocery store, excellent restaurants and great shopping close by. I loved it. The owners were so welcoming and responsive. Wonderful experience and I will stay there again !

You are right one of the reasons our travelers love the area is how quiet it is and how close the stores are to our home. We want you to come back anytime. Thanks for leaving the home in such clean condition. We look forward to your next visit.

                            I was coming to Austin for work with a client/friend and we decided to come in a few days early. We couldn’t have stayed at a better place. My friend had never stayed at a VRBO rental before and she absolutely loved it. Bob was there to greet us when we arrived and walked us through the amazing house we rented. There was plenty of space, clean, the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. It was in a beautiful quit neighborhood, you really felt like you were at home. I will defiantly stay here when I return to Austin.

                            We found this property on VRBO and were SO pleased with everything about it. The pictures of the property are wonderful, but if you can believe it, it is even better in person!. The house is very comfortable, well-built, has every amenity possible, and feels extremely safe. We stayed here for 3 weeks while finishing up a 5 month remodeling project on our house, so this was the perfect house for us due to location and size for my husband and me and our 2 year old son. Bob and Carolyn are wonderful and made sure our stay was comfortable and enjoyable (despite our feeling of being "homeless" due to the remodel taking place). Our 2 year old son LOVED their spacious backyard and side patio. They were always so welcoming and sweet to him and even let us borrow their grand kids' wagon--Bob washed it and had it all cleaned up for our first ride!! You will not be disappointed with this property. We plan to use this for family when they come stay for longer periods of time. It's truly a wonderful little gem!

                            Owner response: We love to have travelers to Austin and we also love to have neighbors who need housing for short terms too. We know about having to live in another home while your home is being remodeled. We love having families with children or grandchildren too. Our back yard is very large and quiet safe and stays shaded most of the day. Glad your home is not finished. We look forward to having your family stay with us in the future.

                            My husband and I spent a wonderful week here. The home is spacious and welcoming - as are the owners. It was even better than we expected. We were very fortunate to have found it and would recommend it to anyone seeking a lovely, quiet place to stay in Austin. It is no more than 15 minutes to everywhere you can want to go. We will definitely be staying there again.

                            This home in the Northwest Hills was absolutely wonderful, as are its owners and hosts. As described on the website, it has a great living room and kitchen, two sizable bedrooms with large walk-in closets for all of your luggage and goods, and a covered garage plus a nice backyard. The rooms were all clean and well stocked with everything from basic foods to bathroom items. The location is great, especially if you are a family wanting a great base to explore Austin and surrounding areas. Perhaps the greatest thing about this property are its owners Bob and Carolyn. Everything was ready for us on arrival thanks to the two of them and their thoughtfulness. Whatever we needed in our stay was available, and they both made sure that we had an optimal vacation in their property. Honestly, they provided just the right amount of 'touch' in terms of interacting with us so we felt provided for while at the same time having the house feel like our second home. The next time we are in Austin, we definitely would want to stay in this home. I highly recommend the warmth and experience.

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, families with teenagers, families with young children, sightseeing.

                            Owner response: We love having your family. The children were delightful pushing the wheelbarrow and pulling the wagon in the back yard. We love children and granchildren and we like to see them have fun. Thank you for the wonderful care you took of our home while you were here. Remember you are welcome anytime you come to Austin. Keep us up to date on the new move and the children. Bob

                            Relaxing and fun is a short version of our experience and we came to Austin to visit our 17 month old grandson. Our first home rental was a great experience & felt like anything but a rental. My wife & I felt everything was spot on......accurate web site of the property, the home was private, immaculate, comfortable, well furnished and very well maintained including a great patio and grill to use. The owner & his wife were gracious, helpful, responsive and made us feel right at home including bringing over fresh picked vegetables several times during our stay. A one car attached garage was nice too. The physical location is great and as well within a 5 minute drive of all the local grocery, general shopping & local restaurants you could need and 15 minutes from several big malls all connected to the MOPAC highway. In the mornings and evenings expect to see a few deer walking down the street now and then. All that and you're probably only 15- 20 minutes from downtown Austin. We would recommend this home rental to anyone looking for a relaxing & comfortable stay. On a scale of 1 to 10 we'd give it a 15.

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, people with disabilities, sightseeing.

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About the owner: Our passion is to provide an outstanding property where our guests will continue to come back year after year. We have a large family with 10 grandchildren and more to come so having a home large enough for families to be able to come to Austin and share a home with friends is important for us. We are serious organic gardeners so our home and landscape is never treated with pesticides. This property while attached to our home is completely separate. You will be impressed with the wonderful decor and amenities.

                          Why the Owner Chose Northwest Hills:
                          We would live no place else in Austin. Some homes in the area have stunning views, others offer level tree lined streets. Tucked away from the City noise and traffic, yet minutes away from everything.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The Northwest Hills area is located in the heart of Austin, yet the neighborhood offers a quiet place to retreat. Austin's finest major shopping centers such as the Domain and Arboretum are just minutes up the road. Yet, local shopping offers everything you need and you never have to get onto any major highway. Grocery stores, post office, UPS, Banks, Pharmacies, restaurants, cleaners and Starbucks are just blocks away
