About Garrett Hill

Real Estate Professional in Austin.

Garrett Hill purchased this house in 2012

Why Garrett Hill chose Austin

This property showcases great space with its 6 bedroom and 7 baths complete with a 550 square foot deck with gas burning fire pits and hard wired up-lights in a massive oak tree. The Betty Jo is a great private place to entertain. Not only is it minutes away from downtown and South Congress district, but it's a short drive to Circuit of the Americas, Lake Austin, and the University of Texas.

What makes this house unique

As mentioned before, the entertaining deck space is truly one of a kind. The amenities, furnishings, location, and contemporary feel make my home something I'm proud to share. The indoor/outdoor space close to downtown is definitely something that makes this property unique.

Easy, Convenient, and Roomy

  • 5 of 5

I'd highly recommend Garrett's home to anyone with a large group. I was in Austin for a bachelor party with 20 guys and we couldn't have picked a better spot. There was plenty of room in both units and we were just minutes away from downtown Austin. Garrett was prompt to respond to any questions or needs we had. I'd stay here again!

Amazing property with easy access to downtown

  • 5 of 5

My stay at the Betty Jo was absolutely wonderful. I was there for a bachelorette party with 18 people and the house was spacious enough for all of us - plenty of bathrooms for 18 girls to get ready in and great sleeping accommodations.

Garrett, the owner, was also so pleasant and accommodating. We were able to ship food and other items to the house prior to us arriving and he allowed us to have late check out.

We simply could not have asked for a better place to stay while in Austin and the ease with with Garrett accommodated our requests and questions (and we had a lot) was seamless. I would recommend this property to anyone going to Austin with a big group.

Great for large parties

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 20 of us visit for the weekend and the house was great. Everything was clean and ready. The house has 2 units (upstairs and downstairs) that do not connect on the inside, which was not an issue at all. The house came loaded with dishes, cups, leftover supplies from previous tenants and towels. The neighborhood is quiet and the house is located in a secluded part. The location was perfect. It was about a 10 minute cab ride to 6th street and downtown. Overall, great place if you have a large party and don't want to stay in a stuffed hotel room.

Great for Large Groups!

  • 5 of 5

Our bachelor party loved staying at the Betty Jo -- there was enough room for 14 of us and plenty of common space to gather in. Would recommend for any large group trip to Austin. Only thing I'll note is that it is two separate units, an upstairs and a downstairs. This wasn't a problem for us at all but is worth being aware of.

Perfect home for an Austin get-away

  • 5 of 5

This house was even better than expected. My group of 17 rented out both sides of the home and we had more space than we knew what to do with. The backyard included games such as can jam, ladders, and even two fire pits which made for a fun relaxing time with friends. Both kitchens had everything we needed to prepare meals and even had some left over supplies from previous renters which was a plus. Garrett was by far the best host I have experience on HomeAway. The check in process was seamless and he always made himself available to contact. He made sure blow up mattresses were set up for our arrival which made for more sleeping space than anticipated. If you are heading to Austin with a size-able group this is where you need to stay. I highly recommend.

Spacious property, great location

  • 4 of 5

I booked the Betty Jo for a bachelorette party of 17 women. The house is more spacious than conveyed in the pictures and between bedrooms and air mattresses, all had places to sleep. The location is absolutely perfect for those planning to stay downtown and/or around S. Congress. I wished there was more natural light, but it was a great house for what we needed that weekend.
