Couldn’t have gone any better!!

  • 5 of 5

Kirk was a wonderful host! He went above and beyond to make sure myself and the rest of the girls in my party were comfortable and well accommodated. He was sociable and so down to earth that it made me feel completely at ease! I would recommend him to any friends of mine that were looking for a place to stay in Austin in the future.

Rapid City, SD

The essence of South Austin

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are no strangers to this area of Austin, having spent some winter months in past years with a daughter who lived in this part of the city. We love the location as it was so close to all our favorite places. This home was perfect for our family! It was spacious and very comfortable. The grand-kids loved being near a little park and no one felt cramped for space in the house itself. It was well equipped for all our needs. Kirk was great to work with. He was prompt with communications and very accommodating. I can't say enough how at home we felt and what great memories we made as a family there.

Great place for family

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I rented this house for us and any extended family the weekend of my daughter's wedding. There were four adults and three kids and it was just the right size with plenty of room to spread out and relax. The kids stayed upstairs and thought it was awesome! The shower-room was also a big hit with everyone - like an outdoor shower only better! It was centrally located to many of the places and things on our to do list. We'll be coming back.

Great Location. Close to everything

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us. We had a bachelor party with 8 guys and the house was exactly what we needed. Kirk is very helpful and was available from the moment the place was booked until we checked out. If you are looking for a place that won't break the bank for a group stay, I highly suggest this place.
