Beautiful house and wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our reunion weekend!! Allison was so easy to communicate with before, during, and after our stay. All the directions provided were very clear and made for an easy weekend! Beautiful neighborhood close enough to get to Austin easily, but removed from the hustle and bustle of the city. Thanks again for a great stay!

This house was amazing! It exceeded our expectations . We wanted a place to celebrate my dad's bday and get away that could accommodate the 9 of us. We have more than enough room. The best part is the chef like kitchen and open area where we could watch the kids swim/jump/swing/ and make memories. This place is like being at the Ritz but with space!! In addition to the gorgeous home we were able to enjoy parks, trails, and the lake right out the front door. The best part is the master bedroom is a retreat itself. We enjoyed sipping wine in room or on the private patio. Truly a wonderful weekend and I would stay again!

Excellent family getaway!

What a wonderful place to enjoy time with family and friends. This home is decorated fabulously in every room, fully stocked with anything and everything needed, and it was comfy and cozy as well. The professional styled kitchen was a real treat, whether you like to cook or not. The beds were luxurious as well as the bathrooms !!!! Plenty of room for All 4 families that we stayed with. Backyard was amazing. Playground was a huge bonus for the kiddos. Close to lake and beautiful parks and hiking! Everything made this home the perfect rental for a vacation.......summer or winter !!! I would definitely go back to this wonderful home in Austin, TX again, and preferably soon !!!

Thank you for our very special vacation !!

Family get Together

  • 4 of 5

The owners of the home were very friendly and helpful. We had trouble connecting to the home audio system and figuring out how to work the TVs, but eventually figured it out. If you are familiar with Apple you should have no problem. The house is spacious and equipped with everything you need. We loved the pool and patio area, which we spent most of our time there. The jacuzzi was relaxing and you are able to set the temperature if you don't like it too hot. The master bedroom was comfortable and equipped with supplies. The upstairs rooms had a couple of twin beds which the kids used. The house is equipped with airbeds and extra bedding if needed. The guest room is adjacent to the game room which is spacious and inviting. We didn't really use the game room but played on the hockey table. Overall, it was a great stay. The only reason that I didn't give it five stars was that we were looking for a home close to a lake to swim, but the lake that is nearby is mainly for boat use and the swimming area is small and unclean. Therefore, we chose to head back to the property. I did look up another nearby lake such as Lake Travis which is about a 19-minute drive from the property. The other con was the check out time was early at 10 am. A later time would have been nice. Otherwise, the home was a nice, spacious, and comfortable home equipped with everything you need. We enjoyed our stay!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! The home is wonderful for family get togethers!! The home accommodates a large group very well and yes the outdoor pool, hot tub, and children's play area are amazing! Our apologies you had trouble with the audio system, I am glad AJ was accessible to assist you quickly! I wish I would have known you wanted lake access to swim there is a wonderful swimming area located at Emma Long Park just 6miles from the house, it has a wonderful beach area, and swim access to Lake Austin, a very popular fun local swim spot! Woodlands Park is a beautiful park featured with 4.8 stars on google reviews, the hiking trails are also amazing featured in Austin Monthly and known as a "hidden gem". Woodlands Park is walking distance from the home with a small inlet for swimming. It does not have a large beach access, more of a shady small area for accessing the water, however there is a fun rope swing you can swing out and jump in the water. We are happy to accommodate a later check out for our guest. We have been able to accommodate as late as a 2pm checkout!!! Thank you so much for staying at our property and we are thrilled you enjoyed your family time in our home! Thank you again for your stay, Allison Zelinski
