Greetings current and future guests. I am a long-time Austin resident and love to share the fun and beauty of Austin with others through my vacation home. The home is especially popular with guests in town for an Austin-style wedding, weekend stays for football games, film and music festivals, as well as working professionals in Austin on short-term work assignments. My guests also include folks living right here in Austin who are remodeling, or are between the sale and purchase of a new home. I have hosted international guests from England, Belgium, Spain, France, Germany, Switzerland and Mexico. Come stay for a weekend or a month! I will be happy to provide you with recommendations for well-known Austin destinations as well as hidden favorites with Austin residents!
Katherine purchased this House in 2005
Why Katherine chose Austin
I bought this house because of the great floorplan for entertaining, the great neighborhood amenities including pools, hiking trails, parks, the safety and quality of the neighborhood, and the great location relative to things to do in Austin.

Great place to stay
I forgot to rent a house for my sister's wedding with my entire family relying one to have something set up, its the night before our flight and I was frantic! Kathrine answered my request super fast even though it was late at night and was more than sweet and helpful! She took care of us big time and made out trip stress free, on top of the hospility the house is wonderful! Plenty of space with a nice open area downstairs to hang out as a group with a nice kitchen for cooking. The bed that my wife and I slept in was nicer than my bed at home! 10 out of 10 would recomend! Didnt have a chance to use the pool or anything, make sure to bring your own coffee. Hope this review helps.
2017 Austin Family Wedding & Vacation
House is located 1kilometer off #620 in a quiet neighborhood. Makes you feel at home right away. There is a community pool approximately 1/2 km. House is older style with brick work outside. Has a large deck and back yard. This review based on 6 adults with 1 infant (male) at 17 months old. Infant is very active and I was not going to hotel it. There was plenty of room in the house for the boy to run and reasonably childproof. Stairs had carpet which made it a little less dangerous in the event the child goes rogue. There is a TV in almost every room. Wifi is available with reasonable speeds.
After reading previous reviews we were prepared to get a few supplies especially for a 6 night stay. So we did a quick inventory and went to the HEB store located a couple miles away and picked up a few supplies, ie. coffee and filters, extra toilet paper, and the groceries we needed, which is to be expected. There is a full sized fridge. Stove burners were warped and frying pans not in the best shape, probably from previous renters.
All appliances worked, showers and AC worked well. There was a bedroom for everyone including the infant. There are 2 family rooms so your are not always in each others space. Can't say I have a complaint. Katherine was very attentive and made sure we were taken care of. It was perfect for our situation with a family. I will definitely rent again.
The home was just what we were hoping for
Our family usually takes a long weekend summer break. The home was perfect for our family of six and gave us just the right distance from hill country hiking and downtown life!
Perfect for a large family
The house was perfect for our large family staying in town for wedding festivities -- lots of room and it had all the amenities we needed. The kids absolutely loved the neighborhood pool, the neighborhood was quiet and the location was very convenient to grocery stores, restaurants and Lake Travis. Downtown Austin was a very manageable 20 minute drive away. Finally, Katherine was responsive and made check-in and check-out a breeze! Would stay here again!
Very nice and well maintained
Easy to get to and close to everything we wanted to do. Rooms were very spacious and comfortable for all of us. We would definitely want to stay here again.
We had a great stay here for a family trip. The house is comfortable and spacious. Katherine was easy to get in touch with. Highly recommended.
