Great home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the month of March 2017 while visiting family in Austin. I loved the well established neighbourhood which had lots of trees, beautiful homes and a location convenient to the city, grocery stores and restaurants. The unit itself is comfortable for a longer stay with washer, dryer and a well equipped kitchen. We enjoyed the lower level courtyard, well shaded by a huge oak tree, and I spent many quiet hours reading on the upstairs deck leading off the main bedroom. The private study area off the living room was particularly useful for my husband who had brought work with him.

The two bedrooms are attractive with comfortable beds. Linens are well supplied. There is a large upstairs full bathroom and a smaller one downstairs. There was loads of hot water and off road parking on a semi-circular driveway.

The adjacent unit was unoccupied while we were there.

Landlord Doug and his daughter Lisa were very pleasant and attentive to our needs. Half an hour after telling Doug about a problem with the coffee maker, he arrived with a brand new one!

We would definitely stay here again.

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely spot to spend a month visiting family in Austin! This Tarrytown townhouse is close to the lake and perfectly situated for walking to parks, restaurants, coffee shops and markets as well as just enjoying the beautiful neighborhood. A quick drive puts you downtown with everything the city of Austin offers (and easy access to north and south Austin too) It is a 2 story townhouse with the master bedroom & bath, 2nd bedroom and laundry room on the upper level. The owner was great to work with & very responsive in addressing an unexpected mechanical issue. There are two outside decks & it’s nice to enjoy a breeze with the screened slider to the back deck. A great home base while in Austin!

Soooo Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights and this will be the first place I check every time I visit Austin. The minute you open the front door you just say "Wow!" Straight ahead is a glass wall that offers a view to a lovely back yard with a huge oak tree and an inviting deck. The shade from the trees and the warm wall colors and furnishings all make this rental feel like the coziest home you've ever been in. The kitchen is modern and clean; coffees and teas were provided as well as a bottle of wine! The upstairs was the same as downstairs...beautiful, warm furnishings/decor and a very nice, large bathroom. Windows were everywhere and the 2nd floor almost felt like living in a tree house due to the mature oak trees out the windows. Doug, the owner, welcomed us personally and couldn't have been nicer. Please consider yourself fortunate to have this home available to you for your time in Austin. The location is close to everything; you will wish you lived in this neighborhood and you will wish you didn't have to leave this house. Enjoy!

The perfect place to stay -- for a weekend or longer!

  • 5 of 5

My family lived here for six months while our home was being renovated. We loved it. The home was immaculate when we arrived and in wonderful shape. The beds were incredibly comfortable, the living area was bright and spacious, and the kitchen was well stocked. We would highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking to come to Austin for a weekend, or for many months! It is just minutes from downtown, Zilker park, and many restaurants.

FABULOUS !!

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently took advantage of this wonderful accommodation when we visited Austin for the U-T graduation for our son & his fiancé. Cannot say enough about the excellent area; access to downtown, waterfront and U-T campus..not to mention the absolutely gorgeous home away from home ( in fact my husband had to admit, in some cases, BETTER than our own home!!). Doug was the consummate host, everything was as advertised...and then some! Will definitely recommend to anyone looking for affordable luxury in Austin

THANKS again Doug!
