Large open master bedroom with attached bathroom suite (including bidet and steam shower); huge open concept kitchen/living/dining room; two additional bedrooms; game room with 60" TV; playscape & trampoline.
This is our actual home, so it is fully equipped and tastefully decorated. We are making it available for you while we are away. Come and enjoy!

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 Rio Robles
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.

Very nice with a lot of extras.
Everything was as described. I could not find instructions on how to turn on the waterslide, but finally figured it out. My only complaint was the propane for the grill ran out and we had to go to a store and have it refilled before we could cook our dinner. The house is amazing and plenty of things to keep the children occupied non-stop. The pool was a real hit, especially the way the lights changed color at night. All and all we had a wonderful time.
We had a wonderful girls reunion weekend. The backyard is fabulous... a true vacation.
Rest & Relax
What a lovely home - the photos on the site don't do it justice! Despite the pool being a bit cold still, we loved hanging out by the pool. You can hear the neighbors periodically but don't see anyone which really makes you feel a world away. Our family is small - this house has tons of room and could accommodate a much larger group. We have Sonos at home and loved being able to use your Sonos system. It was only about a 15 min drive to the city which made getting there very easy despite traffic. The only downside was the neighbor's dogs barking late at night a few times - nothing earplugs couldn't take care of. We really enjoyed seeing deer wandering through the yard. Everyone we met on our visit was very friendly. All of your neighbors waved as we drove by. I can't wait to go back to Austin!
The pictures don’t do it justice, this is a very high end zen inspired home.
With all the amenities you need for kids, a convenient location, and chefs kitchen, this home covers all the bases. The owner is a great guy and super responsive, though we really had few requests as everything is pretty much ready to go from when you step through the doors. Stay here with confidence, all the reviews pointed toward a great stay and this is what we experienced as well. Our stay was great, hope yours will be too. Go AUSTIN!
This house exceeded our expectations! We loved every minute of our stay. The seclusion and privacy of the home was so wonderful for our two families and it gave us a real sense of getting away from the crazy city for a few days. We enjoyed waking with our coffee and watching the deer in the morning, walking down to Lake Austin, wine in the evening around the fire pit, the Sonos music system inside and out, and serving our Thanksgiving meal on that awesome kitchen island. We would LOVE to return to this home in the summer to enjoy the amazing outdoor vibe and pool. What an unforgettable Thanksgiving our families had this year!
An Absolutely Beautiful property in a Great Location!
Our family spent four wonderful days at this property. We came to Austin to visit our son, that started at The University of Texas this year, and Casa Austin was the perfect place for our get together. It is absolutely beautiful, in a fabulous part of Austin, and has an unbelievable backyard. This will be our go to place for all our visits to Austin.

Additional information about rental rates
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.
