Adorable hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this rental home! It was the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of SXSW but still walking distance to adorable shops, restaurants, and a quick ride away from the action. Lovely neighborhood and hospitable hosts....we loved their charming home. Thank you!

Wonderful location. Stunning view of downtown Austin. Plenty of places for gathering and privacy.

  • 5 of 5

A group of 5 women in our 50’s and 60’s rented the house for a 4 day girls trip. Chosen mainly because of the location in an interesting near town neighborhood, we were blown away with the eclectic decor, the garden, and the beautiful views of downtown Austin, especially at night from the second floor balcony. There were multiple spaces to both gather all together and to get privacy. The owners left wine, cheese, fruit, etc. in a well appointed kitchen. We were delighted with our stay!

Beautiful and Artistic Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with another couple for Austin City Limits, and this is the most warm and creatively curated home we have ever had the pleasure to rent. The gorgeous garden kept us entertained with bird and squirrel action, and there are interesting things to look at all through the house. We were welcomed by an outstanding basket of goodies upon arrival as well. We walked home from the festival each night after getting a pedicab lift to the Congress Bridge, so it is a great location for the festival especially.

Comfortable, easy, - and breathtaking to boot!

  • 5 of 5

My coworker and I stayed here during the SXSW festival this year. It was absolutely perfect. Aside from just being stunning, the house was immaculate - the owner even left us a welcome basket! I wanted to live there as soon as I walked in.

Quick list of why we loved it: clean, safe, quiet, easy distance to downtown ($6 Ubers! for SXSW, we had no trouble going back and forth.) There's also a strip of restaurants even closer, which we unfortunately just did not have the time to check out. The beds are super comfortable, there are decks and patios galore, complete with a stunning view of Austin. It's clearly a chef's kitchen, with every appliance or item you'd need. Dana and the owner made booking our stay, getting in, and completing the reservation seamless.

We'd go back in a heartbeat!

Outstanding and listing description very accurate.

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we walked through the front door, I felt I was in a magical place. The phone booth right inside the front door is super cool. Both bedrooms were fantastic, beds comfortable and after playing with the upstairs shower nobs, very refreshing. Dana left us a nice welcome basket and great instructions to start our long F1 weekend. Saturday night we enjoyed a refreshment on the upstairs patio and saw a magical sunset. We took cabs out at night to downtown and had no problem with cabs finding the location. I want to go back again soon!
