great austin house

Loved this house! As a former Austinite, I can say that this house was perfectly located for hanging around SoCo and downtown. Maddy even left us treats in the fridge and made sure the house was sparkly clean. Will definitely be back!!

Maddy was so helpful and kind, she was out of Austin but she took care of all our needs. The house has a gorgeous interior, very comfortable, great light, modern and nice amenities, all the appliances are bright new! We spend 5 weeks and we can tell that part of our great experience in Austin was staying at Maddy's. The location is perfect, right in the heart of SOCO, all good restaurants, cafe's, bars, are so close from the house. We cooked and enjoyed the beautiful kitchen everytime while our kids were watching TV or playing in the living room. Also we used the grill in the patio several times! We wish we could've stayed longer! We were sad to leave! We highly recommend this house!

Perfect House, Perfect Location
Perfect House, Perfect Location
My husband and I stayed at this house with another couple last weekend and absolutely loved it. First, the house is really beautiful and the owners left it in immaculate condition for us. I consider myself a snob when it comes to design and cleanliness, especially when I travel, and I have to say that this place has the Four Seasons (which we usually stay at when we come to Austin) beat. Also, the location is unbeatable as it is within walking distance to all the cool places on Soco and is a 5 minute cab or bus ride to downtown. The only complaint I have is that the upstairs master bedroom did not have window treatments on it and the sunshine was a bit too bright in the morning. Aside from that, we would definitely stay here again.

About the owner: My husband and I fell in love with Austin the day we came to visit our daughter who was just starting a family. After 25 years of living in Montana where nine months of winter was the norm, we were ready for some warmer weather. When we saw people jogging in shorts and t-shirts in the middle of January, we knew Austin was the place for us. Our architect son designed and built our home in 2009. Beautiful soft modern architecture and an open floor plan make this home truly a joy to live in.
