About Maddy Etter

My husband and I fell in love with Austin the day we came to visit our daughter who was just starting a family. After 25 years of living in Montana where nine months of winter was the norm, we were ready for some warmer weather. When we saw people jogging in shorts and t-shirts in the middle of January, we knew Austin was the place for us. Our architect son designed and built our home in 2009. Beautiful soft modern architecture and an open floor plan make this home truly a joy to live in, or a great place for travelers to enjoy all the fun Austin offers.

Maddy Etter purchased this house in 2010

Why Maddy Etter chose Austin

So close to everything but also offers privacy as you enjoy the relaxing in the screened porch or barbecuing on the back patio. And don't worry if you run out of any necessary food or other items, the large HEB grocery store is just one block away - so convenient.

If you decide to go car-less, the city bus is less than a block away and will take you directly into downtown in just 10 minutes.

Love this house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with another couple and 3 kids, the house was perfect for us. Maddy was very easy to get ahold of and communicate with. The house had plenty of dishes, pots, pans and towels for a busy weekend. The master bedroom downstairs has a large walk-in closet that fit our daughter's pack-n-play with plenty of room on all sides, which was awesome since we thought we'd be tip-toeing around after she went to bed. We loved this house and would book it again in a heartbeat. Thanks Maddy!

We stayed here with another couple for a weekend and the house was absolutely perfect. Maddy leaves cute little touches around like chocolate and coffee. The house was clean, had plenty of everything, was very comfortable and within walking distance to SOCO (a mile away). We would absolutely stay here again! Thanks Maddy!

We could not have asked for a better home or owner!! The house was spacious, spotless, and comfortable with all the amenities (and more!) we needed. Location, perfect. Walking distance to the fun shops and fantastic restaurants of SOCO. Quick and easy drive to downtown. Maddy was the most gracious, generous and helpful host!! We will definitely stay here next time we're in Austin!!

Austin Oasis

  • 5 of 5

AMAZING Austin experience. This house is a perfect place to stay. The modern vibe and open floor plan was extremely welcoming. The owners were easy to work with and even left us drinks to welcome us with. A close walk to Congress Street and close to grocery made it easy to actually cook/grill and feel like you were actually at someones house. :)
