  • Everything we needed and wanted

    "My wife and I visited Austin for a ten-day Christmas vacation with our two adult children. This rental provided us with a terrific base. The house was spacious -- plenty of privacy, with three bedrooms and two baths. The kitchen was very well appointed (tons of cooking utensils, pots, pans, plates, toasters, all of that). There was good internet service, which was great, because all of us were poking away at laptops and iPads and smartphones. The beds were very comfortable, and there were plenty of towels. There was also a very convenient washer and dryer. The house is located in what I would consider a quiet, working-class family area. It's a very easy walk to the parks along Lady Bird Lake and the shops and restaurants along Cesar Chavez Street, the main drag through East Austin. (There are some food trucks along East Austin and East Sixth Street that are world class -- you have to check out Vera Cruz and East Side Kings.) The more high-end restaurants are further away. Though there are many places walkable from the house, I'd strongly recommend having a car. Getting downtown is about a mile and a half, and you have to pass under I-35. Getting to downtown, to the LBJ Library, to University of Texas, and to the South Congress Street restaurants are all very quick ten- or fifteen-minute drives -- but most days, you wouldn't want to walk that far. (Then again, we were there in the winter, and it was on the chilly side most days, so that may have influenced our decision to drive.) You'll also need a car to get to supermarkets. (Don't miss the experience of going to the Whole Foods downtown!) The owner was very accommodating and easy to deal with. And I'll mention that the backyard seemed very nice and spacious, but the weather didn't lend itself to our using it much. We'd be happy to return in the future. And Austin is a great town that you can to to time and time again!"

  • Perfect Girls Weekend Getaway Pad!

    "Every year I take a trip with my girlfriends to a new city and this was our first time in Austin. The house was perfectly set up to accommodate a group of gals that wanted to relax and catch up, and of course, have fun! The location is great...close proximity to lots of the city's best areas and we had a really easy time getting around town quickly. The home was beautiful inside and out. We were very pleased with the organized, easy rental process and would come back in a heartbeat!"

  • Perfect Group Retreat

    "We were directed to this property after a snafu with a different reservation. David was very quick to respond and help us get situated. The house itself is amazing. It took a while to get acquainted with the entire space since it's MASSIVE in the best way possible. One person in our group didn't realize there was a third floor for about 30 minutes. It has everything a group on a weekend retreat could possibly need and then some! We would not hesitate to stay here again!"
