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

Girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very great time at this house this past weekend! Carrie was great at getting back to us throughout the booking process and was very patient with a few changes we had. There were 7 of us from all over. I guess there was no one staying the night before so we were able to check in a few hours early which was great because we were flying in from all over. The house was very clean and spacious. The kitchen had everything we needed for the few meals we did have at the house. It is a short uber ride to anywhere you need to go. This house and area is so unique in that it has a country feel with just a short distance to the city. City view from the upstairs patio, with a pig and mule next door. We had frequent visits from the pig that we called Birtha. I highly recommend this place for your Austin visit!

This was the perfect house for us!

  • 5 of 5

5 of us girls stayed here for a bachelorette weekend and It couldn’t have worked out better. It was the perfect location and we Uber’d everywhere for cheap money. Being 15 minutes from the airport and 10 minutes from downtown was a definite perk. The hot tub came in very handy given we were there in February and had some cooler days. I’d love to go back during a warmer month and experience things like Barton Springs and river tubing. I’d definitely recommend checking out E. 6th St and Rainey St. Carrie the owner was a pleasure to work with and would suggest this house to others for sure!
