Wonderful home, great location, comfy beds!

  • 5 of 5

Family gathered for birthday celebration. Great house for a crowd! It was unusually hot and air conditioning kept us all comfortable. Privacy and quiet in the bedrooms. Located on a main street so very handy for Uber use. Easy walk to Franklin BBQ-be sure to preorder and take home! Super comfy beds and the best pillows ever! Prompt communication from owners and we'd definitely stay again!

Excellent house for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Austin for a high school girls reunion weekend and this house was perfect for us. Great to have everyone sleeping in comfortable beds, nice bathrooms, plus excellent space to hang out together in the kitchen/family room area. It was a short Uber ride to the Austin spots we visited --restaurants, bars, shopping, and yoga so the location is very good. There are also coffee shops and food trucks nearby that are a short walk. The property owner was easy to reach and extremely helpful leading up to and during our stay. Definitely recommend!!

I cannot say enough about how wonderful this home was, or about how amazing the management company was to work with. I've stayed in many rental properties-through Homeaway and Airbnb, and none came close to this. The home was gorgeous, spotless and came with adorable snacks and drinks and slippers (!) in each of the many rooms. The management company answered my many questions quickly and in detail. They even stocked the fridge with the exact products I requested (down to the specific chese brands and wine labels). If you're considering booking this house, do it! You will not regret it!!

Franklin's Bar-B-Que

We're just a few blocks from downtown and the Convention Center. Rainey Street, Lady Bird Lake, fourth and the famous Sixth Street can all be reached by taxi or ride share, costing no more than $6-$8. If you're feeling adventurous, you can embark on the 15-minute walk and be at the Capitol or on Congress Avenue in the heart of Downtown Austin.

Our home sits in the middle of the revitalized East Austin neighborhood, near Franklin's Bar-B-Que, a perfect spot for lunch (get there early!) before a Saturday afternoon of Longhorn football at Darrell K Royal Texas Memorial Stadium. You’ll also find yourself situated among some of the city’s best restaurants and cocktail venues, so don't despair if football isn't quite your scene. Hillside Farmacy, Quickie Pickie and Paperboy, all just a walk down Navasota St., are great breakfast options to start your morning. If you're looking for a neighborhood coffee gem with fantastic coffee, head to Figure 8 Coffee Purveyors (unless you prefer your coffee in house, for that we have a Nespresso machine)!
