Great vacation! Relaxing home for the parents AND the children!
"We had a great stay at Hill House. Carole went out of her way to make sure my wife and I and our 2 boys had an outstanding stay. Before we arrived Carole set up a high chair and a booster chair in the kitchen for our children, as well as a pack & play in the bedroom. She also provided a children's wading pool in the backyard so our boys could splash and play while we relaxed in the evenings. (Our boys enjoyed it so much that they started crying when it was time to pack up and go home)
The house was perfect for us and we spent several evenings just walking around the neighborhood with the boys in their stroller. El Mercado Mexican Restaurant was a 2 minute walk from the house and had great food and a play area for kids. Food trucks were just across the street.
The house was very clean and Carole provided everything you could possibly want... even coffee beans and a grinder.
We had a great stay and will definitely be staying here again on future trips to Austin."

"We used this house for a family gathering with 8 adults and 4 toddlers. It worked out wonderfully. The house is big enough that adults could be rowdy without waking napping kids. I live in Austin so I know the neighborhoods, and to have a rental this big this close to downtown is amazing. I would actually buy a house in this neighborhood if I could afford it. We could walk to Barton Springs restaurants or Alamo Drafthouse, and Zilker Park was just up the road. The owner happily worked with the crib rental company to have a portable crib delivered, and she also demonstrated openness to my feedback about mulching the area under the playscape in the fenced backyard. This house will be at the top of my list when I search for a place for our next family gathering."

"Our family stayed here because I had a medical procedure at St. David's which is only about 12 minutes away. I was laid up for a week so I was pretty much grounded here for a week and it was perfect! It was incredibly clean, cozy, and just plain comfortable.
I joked with my wife that I was going to steal the couch as it was the most comfortable couch I've even rested on. And both beds were incredibly comfortable too.
I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. In fact, my wife and I agreed that if we ever have to come to Austin again we'll stay here. I can't imagine finding a better place especially at the affordable rate that this owner charges. It's a bargain for everything you get!
When we stayed here the pool was still closed for the season so I can't comment on that other than to say it looked like a nice pool and the whole pool area looked very private. The nice thing too is that the pool is literally right out your back door from this property so if you have kids old enough to swim on their own, you can easily keep an eye on them from inside the home.
The other thing I will say is that the owner, Stephanie, is phenomenal to work with. She responded to all of my emails and texts almost immediately. And when there were a couple items I needed, she took care of them without question. She's the best.
Finally, the location is awesome. While I didn't venture out that much as I was recovering, my wife and kids did and my wife kept commenting how awesome the location was. She said it was central to everything you'd want to do in Austin!"
