Great place, great location! Highly recommend it, especially in the summer.

  • 5 of 5

Great spot, close to Downtown. Bed and pull out very comfortable. Very clean, Nice modern kitchen. Stayed in March, so pool too cold to swim in, but nice to sit by the pool in the morning with cup of coffee, feel the sun on the face and listen to the birds. This would be a perfect place in the summer time. Very quiet neighborhood. Nice restaurants close by, as well as food trucks. Owner very responsive and helpful.

I've stayed at a number of homes using a number of different websites and or apps including hotels and have not yet been in a more comfortable and welcoming home. Steve was a great host and was happy to answer any questions upon request.

A Small Osasis

  • 5 of 5

if you are looking for a great place to stay in Austin, this is the one. Privacy and access to a pool what more can you ask for to get away from it all. Convenient to most everything as you have quick access to 290 and 71. My wife and I stayed for 5 weeks waiting for our house to be built in Austin. The apt was very clean with all the amenities of home with a full kitchen and a gas grill. If I was not moving to Austin, I would stay here again. thank you Steve for a great stay.

Fall wedding 2015

  • 5 of 5

The Ranch was a great place for our the wedding. Both families were from out of town and it was a great place to come together. The kitchen was a great to do the meal preparation and dining. If we needed anything Natalie and Dave were right there to accommodate us. The party barn was the perfect place for the for folks to gather, visit and great for the reception. Shopping was very easy to get to and there were restaurants close by.

Dave the grounds keeper was amazing he was right there whenever we needed anything. I would rent The Ranch again.
