Excellent place!

Had a great time staying there during SXSW 2017. Place is even better than advertised, with a lovely backyard and gracious host. Would highly recommend.

Great place, convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with another couple were in town for the weekend to see a show downtown at the Paramount. The duplex was exactly what we needed. Very comfortable and close to the downtown area. The weather was warm enough that we could sit outside in the morning and in the evenings on the back porch. It is very relaxing back there. Shane did a great job on the remodel!

Shane Looney's rental

  • 5 of 5

Excellent. A wonderful 2 bedroom 2 bath rental with excellent decor. A covered parking area. An outdoor patio with grill, fire pit, heaters, televisions, fans, table and sitting area... A very quite neighborhood setting. A very nice and friendly owner who lived next door and made us feel very welcomed. Was close to town, our family and our friends. We plan to use Shane's rental again, if available.

Clean, convenient, comfortable, great place to relax.

  • 5 of 5

Needed someplace for 2 friends from out of town, as well as someplace the 5 of us could all gather before going out or hang out at the end of the night. For friends getting together, or for a long term stay, this is fantastic.

The property is very well-kept. No cleanliness issues that we found.

There is space to lounge in the great room, and there is even a TV on the back porch if people want to sit outside (in a great-looking backyard).

Shane was responsive by email, and we had no hassles throughout the weekend. Would definitely rent this property again.

Very nice property spacious living and kitchen open floor plan

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at this property while we got my daughter settled in for school at UT. We are from out of state. My husband had to leave and our older son came to see us and during his stay he decided to live here (even though he's a diehard sooner his sis is undeniably a longhorn now). We enjoyed staying at this property. The location was excellent and there was plenty of room and "homeyness" to make our transition. It would be an excellent home for watching sports and hanging out with friends. We don't have any complaints. The kitchen and living room have a spacious open plan.
