About Katie Sherman
Hi my name is Katie and I was born and raised in Boulder, CO, which is why Austin is a perfect city for me... similar culture and vibe. I love the artsy, one-of-a-kind nature of this city from amazing restaurants, live music, and the beautiful scenery of rolling hills and lakes to play on. Because I have two small children, my house is PERFECT for adults and children. 3000 s.f. with a great playroom and amazing deck and back yard. My neighborhood, Travis Country, is just 10 min from downtown Austin and has two neighborhood, parks, playscapes, swimming pools, a pond, and miles of greenbelt. This house has 4 bedrooms. Master King bed, guest room with a queen, a trundle bedroom (two twins) and a kids room with two, twin bunk beds as well as a queen sleeper sofa. A full size blow up mattress, and pack and play are also available upon request. I have a washer and dryer, and two wonderful playrooms filled with a variety of toys for all ages. Cable, netflix and Apple TV all available here.
Katie Sherman purchased this House in 2009

Spent a weekend in Austin visiting friends who also had toddler aged children. The house was perfect for the kids to stomp around; plenty of space for them and lots of toys. Playground and swimming pool were just a 5 minute walk down the street. Perfect amount of towels as well.
Great stay overall, would defintiely consider again.
Great house, A+ experience
Great house, exactly as described and owner went out her way to ensure my family had all the info prior to arrival and details during our stay. Great experience, great house for kids too.
I am so glad you're family had a great experience. Please come again any time!
AWESOME House in a quiet neighborhood, easy to get into town or head to the hill country
My group of friends wanted to meet up in Austin to celebrate a friend's birthday for the weekend. I found Katie's home and everyone agreed the price was right split up 7 ways was fair.
We didn't have any kids with us, so we didn't make use of the toys/games in the house, but they would be great for travelling families.
The amenities of the home were perfect, with plenty of bedrooms, a great living area, and plenty of room for folks to hang out and relax. All the expected amenities were provided (towels, soap, etc), so it was easy to just show up and settle in quickly.
Katie was EXCELLENT at communicating prior to our trip, and responded to our inquiries with professionalism in every way.
Cleanup instructions were provided and easy to follow, and were both posted on the fridge, and provided in the binder with the home's info/instructions in the kitchen.
All in all, a great weekend, and would consider staying at this property again.
Thank you for such a kind review, Michael! You have been among my favorite guests to host and I hope you come back!
Very pleasant stay
Katie was an excellent host. She was very accommodating. We were in town for SXSW and had morning sessions to catch, so requested an early check-in. Katie met us at her home that morning and allowed us to drop off our bags prior to check in so that we could get to the convention center without lugging our bags around. Her home is very comfortable and stylish and the layout is great if you have a group. There were 6 of us (three couples) and each our rooms had it’s own bathroom either en-suite or right next door. The location was also great. Not too far from downtown, in a quiet relaxing neighborhood. However we did find that is was far enough away that we would only make one trip out each day. So if you’re attending SXSW or any other events downtown, I recommend bringing a back pack, layers, comfortable shoes, etc and being prepared to stay out all day. Overall we had an awesome stay, highly recommend!
So happy you all came and enjoyed your experience. Thanks for being such beautiful guests. I hope you come back soon!
Beautiful family friendly home
We stayed at this property during ACL weekend. Two couples, one teenager, a toddler and grandma.. we had plenty of room. The home is beautifully decorated and equipped with a wonderful play area for our toddler as well as baby gates on the stairs . My teenager could have used an additional TV in the house during football watching time but it was no biggie. The owner, Katie, was wonderful about communication and her rules are very clearly laid out upon check in. The kitchen and dining areas suited us perfectly, she even had a booster seat waiting for my toddler as well as a pack n play. We didn't cook very much but everything we needed was readily available. The neighborhood is safe and quiet and perfect for taking walks/jogs with the family. We usually travel as a couple to this event and stay at a hotel but wanted a larger area this time for the children. We would definitely use this house again if we travel with the children again. *one note, all the bedrooms are upstairs.
Thank you for your hospitality Katie! Please come decorate my house! 😀
Awe thank you what a kind review! Glad you enjoyed the neighborhood, space and ambiance. You all were the perfect guests. Thank you so much for your respect of my home and communication. Happy to have you back anytime!
Very clean and kid friendly, great location
Plenty of space for a large family with baby gates and fun toys! Beautiful kitchen!
My house sits in a beautiful, southwest, active, family neighborhood in Austin's hill country, surrounded by miles of greenbelt and only 10 minutes from downtown. Austin's downtown features a lively restaurant, shopping and music scene that is one-of-a-kind. Ladybird lake is also within 10 minutes, where you can enjoy biking, running/walking, paddle boarding, kayaking, or people-watching. Austin is known as the live music capital of the US with hundreds of unique venues. Austin also boasts of numerous locally owned restaurants, most of which are delicious and feature unique farm-to-table creations. Austin's food trucks, infamous 6th street bar scene and outdoor activities add to the unique charm of the city. Austin is the host of famous events such as South by Southwest, Austin City Limits Music Festival, The X-Games, and Formula 1. My house is the perfect location for families, singles and companies. Families will enjoy two neighborhood pools, playscapes and a pond complete with ducks and turtles. There are wonderful hiking trails that lead to waterfalls as well as other adventures just minutes away. My house is spacious, offering privacy for corporate parties as well as families (3000 s.f., 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths) as well as a huge deck and backyard. I would be happy to help with custom recommendations for entertainment, restaurants and/or kid-services/activities for your specific needs.
