About Melissa

Troy and I love to build things! Aside from working hard, we love to surf, hike, and enjoy all the live music Austin has to offer. We settled in South Austin after living in Hawaii for 3 years. San Marcos is where we met, and floating the river is one of our favorite past times!

Melissa purchased this house in 2013

Why Melissa chose Austin

This property has a very special feeling to it. With such a large lot, you have the privacy of the country with the amenities of the city close by. This is the place to sit back, relax, smoke some ribs on the pit and enjoy a game of corn hole and a cold beer. Or kick back in a hammock with a good book. This is Peaceful Hill.

What makes this house unique

The large back porch is the most popular gathering area. With the deep bench swings facing each other, it is a great place to relax and visit with friends and family. The large kitchen and open floor plan make for fun dinner parties.

Perfect!,

  • 5 of 5

This house, the cottage, and the property are amazing! Everything was clean and prepared upon arrival. The bedrooms are comfortable with plenty of room (full closets, lots of hooks). A nice touch was the supplied shampoo, paper towels, etc. The main house living area also had plenty of room for our large family to hang out when we weren't outside. Plenty of parking was a bonus! Would definitely stay again!

Was Better than Expected

  • 5 of 5

This property is just ideal for a family get together. With a open and lovely kitchen to nicely appointed rooms to a fabulous backyard that is so useful and conducive to fun and special personal experiences and interactions. The property is well maintained and very inviting. We have rented numerous homes for our children and grandchildren to gather and stay together; this was by far the best one yet! Thank you for a great time.

Excellent beyond words!

  • 5 of 5

My family wanted to experience Austin over Christmas holiday, for five days. Three were from CA, three from NJ...and myself from the Houston area. We LOVED this property SO much!!! Everyone had a very comfortable bed, open space for table games, movie watching and dining outdoors. The spacious back yard had a great fire pit, (with logs that they kindly provided) along with a casita for additional guests! The hosts were gracious and always timely, with responses, in all aspects of renting, during the stay, and afterward!!! I highly recommend this home and the stellar owners! Thank you Missy!

Great fun enjoyed by all, from the entire Anderson family!!!

Wonderful bachelorette weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing! Missy and Troy were so helpful and responsive prior to and during our stay. The house is beautifully decorated and so comfortable. The back porch and yard are the best features. Missy and Troy thought of everything! We loved our stay and would highly recommend the Blue Bird House!

Bluebird vacation house was one of the best homes we ever rented!

  • 5 of 5

Our eleven family members of 8 adults and 3 children (ages 3, 10 & 13) had a great time in this spacious welcoming home. The yard was fantastic to sit & relax or play games to enjoy the outside as well as the inside of this beautiful unique home. The kitchen was spacious to prepare all meals and the appliances were awesome! Our hosts, Missy and Troy were very accommodating and answered all our questions quickly. We were close enough for many Texas day trips including two trips to San Antonio. We would definitely rent again if our plans included Austin or San Antonio! Highly recommend this rental!

Located with close proximity to South Park Meadows, there is an abundance of restaurants and shopping just minutes away. Lady Bird Johnson wild flower center is a short 6 miles down the road. 8 miles up the highway is downtown Austin!
