Reviewer Comments:

We recently converged on Austin for a week to spend time with our 4 adult children, son-in-law, and grandbaby. This home was perfect for our Austin adventure. The location was central to many fun activities the city has to offer such as Zilker Park, S. Congress street, Barton Springs, and many restaurants.

Reviewer Comments:

This property was great! I read many of the reviews prior to renting this home and needless to say, I was slightly worried. However! The house was absolutely precious. Convenient location, great layout, cute decor, huge backyard, and clean! If I had to find a complaint, I would say there could have been more towels... But, we also had 8 people stay.

Great location, but shabby amenities

  • 2 of 5

We booked this rental for a week during our kids' Spring Break. My 70-year-old parents also joined us. The location is great and walkable to many restaurants, Palmer Center, Zilker Park, and the lake. And also includes off-street parking, which was great. However, there is A LOT of loud truck/bus traffic (bus stop right outside house), and when we arrived there was a music festival happening close by and we could hear it in the house. The windows also rattled loudly when planes flew by.

The 3 bedroom layout was great for our family, but both of the downstairs bedrooms had very uncomfortable, squeaky beds. The downstairs bathroom shower was awful and sprayed all over the place, with poor water pressure. The ceiling fan in the downstairs bedroom also did not work. We were disappointed that there was only 1 hanger in the entire house. And only two hand towels and one washcloth could be found. And many of the white bath towels were stained. We ended up going to Target and buying our own towels.

The kitchen was well-equipped, but the dishwasher soap dispenser did not close easily. And the wine glasses, housed on an open shelf were grimy and needed a good wash before we used them. Same for some of the pots/pans.

We liked that there was a washer/dryer, but we were only left with two detergent cubes and no dryer sheets. Also had to pick these up at Target.

The furniture in the house is all very shabby, a little dirty, and mismatched, putting me in mind of a college house. I'm guessing this is a house rented for the many festivals happening in Austin. In fact, we found two ping pong balls on the floor and some red solo cups (beer pong anyone?).

We have family in Austin, and will definitely be coming back to town. But, I wouldn't rent this place again. Too expensive for the condition of it.

Great home walking distance to downtown and Congress

  • 5 of 5

Four of us were in town for the SXSWedu conference and had a great stay at this house. It was clean, the wifi was strong, and there wasn't any moment where we said, "if only the house had this." The yard was really beautiful and the house was even nicer than we were expecting. We are fans of walking and it was an easy walk to the restaurants on Congress and to the convention center. I am sure that had we decided to take cabs around, the rides would have been cheap since it is so central. There is also a bike-share stop right down the street if we'd wanted to use that. There were plenty of good restaurants nearby and we all agree we would definitely book this property again for work or for family trips.

Not too cold, not too hot, but just right.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at this property during our weekend in Austin. It's walking distance to downtown, and central enough for an inexpensive timeshare to just about anywhere. No amazing bells and whistles although the fitepit is nice. There's a Washers put in the backyard but we couldn't find the washers. All in all we had a good time and the house was perfect for what we needed.

Great Location, Bad Bugs.

  • 2 of 5

The location was great - I was taking the Bar Exam at the Palmer Events Center across the street. However, while the house is picked up and tidy, it is not clean. The floors are dirty and worst of all, the sofa in the den and one of the beds had BUGS!!! If I there was a feasible place for us to go that would still have been within a half mile of the Bar Exam, we would have left the first night. Instead, I couldn't sleep the first night - its hard to sleep when you can feel bugs crawling on you and biting you - and spent the next three days of the exam covered in bug bites and itching.

The house can comfortably fit 6 people, and if you can get over not sleeping/being eaten alive by bugs, then this is a great spot for you.

We washed all of our sheets and clothes to help deter the bugs. My feet and ankles would still get bitten as I walked through the house. Straight up gross.

Id give this place a star for location - convenient and close to things. And a star for a functioning kitchen and a functioning washer/dryer.

(could use a new shower head in the downstairs bathroom)
