Great space for a group of 6 or more!

  • 4 of 5

Clean, quiet, and has everything you need for a weekend getaway for a larger group! Great parking for multiple cars as well. Carrie is very accondating and provides detailed instructions for your arrival and stay. We didn’t get to see any goats, but got to meet the pet pig that sleeps behind the house!

Clean, relaxing, quiet, yet close to downtown.

  • 4 of 5

The house was charming, spacious and very clean. The setting was serene and view of Austin was great. Houses next to this property were fine but general area is going through a transition meaning different levels of upkeep. Lots of space in and out. Neighbor pig was quite a character!

Beautiful getaway in Austin!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this house with 7 other women to celebrate a relaxing and stress-free bachelorette weekend, and this house was absolutely perfect. The rooms were clean and beautiful, the grounds were gorgeous, the hot tub was lovely, and we were just close enough to the city. Would definitely recommend this place again!

Party of 6

  • 5 of 5

A comfortable, well equipped very private home. Perfect for a short trip with friends - but would also make an excellent location for longer stays. Loved the neighbors pig that visited often. Carrie was a pleasure to work with a great host.

Idyllic quiet countryside just minutes from downtown Austin. Very clean with all the necessaries.

  • 5 of 5

To put it in simple, although overused terms, it was awesome. Grandkids, ages 3,2 and 4 mos. were in heaven, getting to play outside rather than being cooped up in a hotel room. The friendly pot bellied pig who came to visit each morning made their day. 3 deer were breakfasting in the meadow in front of the house this morning. Carrie couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful. Stay here if you get a chance. Very relaxing.

Best Kept Secret

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing. We stayed here during SXSW and found it as good as the Festival. It was so easy to just chill there or when we had to - manoeuvre by taxi to & from the downtown music events. We even had a nice walk to the bus stop at times. We would definitely go back as Carrie place is a best kept secret
