About Michael Austin

I am a general contractor specializing in high-end residential renovations.

Michael Austin purchased this house in 2005

Why Michael Austin chose Austin

My wife and I designed and built this home. It is an eclectic mix of traditional, transitional, modern and southwestern. The house has 10' ceilings, and a 16' vaulted ceiling in the living room. From the huge decks and patios, you can relax and soak in the sounds of birds, insects and frogs. Or, shut the doors and windows and enjoy silence (or your own rockin music on our Sonos system).

What makes this house unique

Please keep in mind this is our fully furnished home. This is not a dedicated rental property, though it has every convenience you should expect. Availability generally depends on our own travel schedule, but feel free to request a booking any time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your lovely home. We had a great vacation.

Perfect vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this home twice - once for a week in Summer 2016 and once again in July 2017. The house itself is lovely, kept in perfect condition and full of amenities that make it a perfect family getaway.

The outdoor pool is a highlight for our children due to its size and the ever-popular water slide! The kids also love the trampoline and the large yard area with plenty of room for outdoor fun. For the adults, the outdoor sitting area by the pool is shaded and spacious, which makes it ideal for lounging while the kids play in the pool.

The house has three full bedrooms and three full bathrooms, which is perfect for large groups. The large screen TVs with DirectTV in three of the rooms, along with streaming services in some of the rooms, makes it easy to relax in the evenings as well. The fully equipped kitchen is also great for those who like to stay in and prepare their own meals.

The location is another great aspect of this home. It is 10 minutes from great shopping options that include a Whole Foods, an HEB, an upscale mall and a movie theater. And it's just a short drive to downtown Austin, which offers great dining and entertainment options.

All around, this has been an ideal vacation rental for our family. We will definitely be back!

This home is a Diamond in the Rough!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have to say this was our best vacation yet! The owners were more than accommodating and their home was even better than we expected, the pictures don't do it justice...........

We went to Austin with the intention of doing as many things as possible outdoors(lake, trails, horseback riding,etc.) but we found ourselves spending most of our time at the house!!! ITS THAT AMAZING! You're surrounded by a tranquil wooded area that gives you seclusion and privacy, yet you are also in a neighborhood that is close to stores and has quick access to the rest of the world. We woke up every morning to a family of deer either walking down the driveway or right out back in the woods. Also this house was fully equipped with EVERYTHING, and should you have any questions at all the owners were easy to reach and always available! I can't say enough about this home and our experience there! My kids didn't want to leave (neither did I )

Definitely left having house envy!

Incredible Experience!

  • 5 of 5

I came down for a weekend getaway with some of my girlfriends, and we had an amazing experience!

The house is absolutely immaculate, and every single one of us said that we wanted to stay at this house again multiple times during our stay.

The surrounding area is quiet, and the distance from downtown Austin isn't too bad.

We loved Michael! He was helpful during our entire stay, and extremely responsive when we asked for help!

Such an incredible experience.... I would 100% recommend this house and overall experience for anyone!

We can't wait to return here for our next trip to Austin!

What a lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful vacation staying in this well-designed home in the Austin Lake Estates. Our two young girls adored spending afternoons in the pool, and they couldn't have been happier between the water slide and trampoline. My husband and I loved the large deck/patio area and large living room. The house is extremely clean and just lovely. The kitchen was designed with a chef in mind - great layout and well stocked. The bathrooms and laundry facilities were wonderful. The owners were quick to respond to any question/request, and they were a pleasure to deal with during our vacation. It is our hope to return again next year.

We are 25 minutes from the airport, and countless excellent restaurants are nearby in Westlake, Bee Cave, Lakeway, and Austin. The only downside to our rural seclusion is that our driveway is unpaved, but I'm sure your rental can handle it (our Lexus does fine). Please call with any questions.
