convenient, comfortable for a crowd

  • 4 of 5

Kirk was very easy to communicate with and accommodating to our group of 9 adults. Kirk gave us full attention, which we needed very little of because the home was well equipped, clean and comfortable. It is a nice rental.

Perfect location , clean and great host

  • 4 of 5

Had a blast with family here, host was awesome. Only reason not 5 stars was showers and water pressure along with hardness of some of the beds. Would stay here again with family or a smaller group than 10

Amazing time! 5 stars!!!

  • 5 of 5

Had an incredible time in this location. Kirk was a great host and very helpful with events in the area. Very comfortable and beautiful scenery. Highly recommend Torch's. Perfect tacos with only a 5 min walk on the trail.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the great review and kind words. I have walked over and eaten at that Torchy's as well. But I'm very partial to the Thai food trailer just a wee bit closer to town, just as you exit the trail through the park. Pad Thai for $7 can't be beat!

Peaceful, natural paradise in the middle of the big city

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I loved staying at this property. Although walking to downtown is pretty out of the question (ended up being a 10-15 minute uber ride, actually), the location is prime! We appreciated the natural beauty of the property with lots of trees and foliage, as well as the multiple outdoor living areas. Showers have extremely low water pressure, but the house is in great shape otherwise, and it provided us with all of the accommodations we needed. Kirk was also easy to communicate with and very friendly. If we ever go back to Austin, we'll certainly keep this property in mind! Thank you, Kirk!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful rating and review. I will look into the showerheads to ascertain the reason for the low water pressure. Thank you for the heads up. Regarding the low water pressure issue, I contacted my plumber and he gave a recommendation which was accurate. The valve leading to the water meter was only at 50%, in the middle position. The valve has been turn to 100% and the pressure is normal. Thank you very much for your polite comments. -Kirk
