Perfect Bungalow!

The place was fabulous, clean and super cozy! Awesome deck wraps around the bungalow overlooking the park. The big windows make for a bright cheerful atmosphere. I will definitely be back! Thank you Lisa for being so accommodating too!

Group of 4 women on business trip were all super happy with this home. The deck was an amazing place to sit for coffee as well as wine. Close to downtown and the trails by Lady Bird Lake. Barton Springs Pool is right across the road! Loved walking to dinner and listening to live music at Shady Grove. Can't go wrong with this rental!

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Austin. The home is close to downtown and within walking distance of good restaurants on Barton Springs Road. The house itself is light and open. We loved the deck and enjoyed people watching in the park across the street. Thanks, Lisa for letting me check out late when the rest of my family left for early flights!

Had a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the home to spend time with friends and family in Austin and it was perfect! The location was wonderful, walking distance to Barton Springs, easy drive to South Congress and Whole Foods and beautifully decorated. It has views of the park and the hills beyond and a lovely large deck. One evening we had the whole family over to watch a movie on the big screen tv in the family room. We can't wait to come back and stay again - how about 10 stars.......

Thank you!
