Beautiful home. Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The home was absolutely beautiful with many unique custom features. The rooftop was unbelievable. A perfect place for gatherings. Cool breezes and shade even on warm days. We absolutely loved the fact that we could walk to Zilker Park, Barton Springs, Lady Bird Lake and some of the best restaurants in Austin. We can't wait to come back and stay again!

Great location, roof-top space does not disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a great location; we walked to many spots or easily über-ed to places around town. The house is of course safe, beautiful, with a charming courtyard entrance (every time we came 'home,' it felt special!), an immense roof-top space, and it is well-furnished. It was clean and well-appointed. The bedrooms were as pictured (including race car beds!). The bathrooms and kitchen (and really the whole house) are updated. The hosts were very accommodating, and accessible. The only thing that we hadn't fully realized was that this is the primary residence of the owners/hosts; many of their personal belongings are stashed away but if you want to hang up an item in a closet or put something into a dresser or even unpack at all, this may not be the house for you.

A great place to relax while enjoying all that Austin has to offer

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this house, which was as good or better than the pictures show.......a lovely house and property with high end features but very comfortable. We felt very welcomed by the hosts. Ours was a 50th b-day/ college reunion of couples and single adults, but the house could also work for a group of families with young kids. The location is great- as anything you would want to do is within walking, driving, or ubering distance, but you might also just want to stay at the house and enjoy an evening on the amazing 3rd story deck.

Fantastic property!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a large group of 12 in conjunction with a conference at the Convention Center downtown. Jill was super helpful in figuring out what was best for transportation back and forth (quick Uber ride $5-7 unless it was peak/busy time and then rates are higher). House was set up and very clean upon arrival. All beds (5 bedrooms) were comfortable and she even had the pullout ready in the master. Speaking of the master, it is a super large room and the bathroom is great for groups getting ready as there are sinks/counter space/mirrors separate from the shower/tub/toilet. Top floor outdoor deck was amazing and worked great for team building, on-the-go work sessions, and late night drinks and chatter. Kitchen was very user friendly and we had all the things we needed to eat and drink at the house all week. I am very pleased with this rental, will recommend it to any asking, and look forward to working with the property manager again (professional, helpful, quick responses)!

Awesome House!

  • 5 of 5

Rented this house over Memorial Day weekend with a group of 10 friends; it was a GREAT choice. The pictures of the house are very accurate. 6 Bedrooms, plenty of room, huge kitchen and bathrooms. The best part was the top floor, which was an open air living space with couches, chairs, tables, refrigerator, TV, counter space. We spent the majority of our time up there despite some heavy rains. Location wise, it was nice being in a quiet neighborhood. It's not the closest to downtown 6th street, but it was such a short Uber ride to pretty much anywhere that it didn't make a huge difference, especially since walking would take a while. I would suggest this to anyone who is visiting Austin with a large group.

Finally, shoutout to Jill, the property manager, who was helpful through the entire experience. Our group had a different house booked that cancelled on us within a week of our arrival. I saw that this listing was still available, and when I reached out, Jill responded very quickly and was very helpful given our tight situation. We were in contact for most of the weekend, and she continued to be responsive to questions through checkout.

Absolutely incredible house.

Gorgeous home with tons of space- Photos don't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect for our long girls weekend in Austin. From the beautiful entryway to the amazing covered roof deck/patio, it could not have been better! The kitchen is very spacious with the highest quality cookware/appliances. All of the bedrooms were big and nicely decorated. We especially enjoyed the top floor bedroom (very quiet and secluded) and the Master Bedroom, which is basically a house in itself! The master has a large living area with a pull out couch/wet bar/fire place along with a huge bathroom and beautiful steam shower. All of the beds were also extremely comfortable. The location is perfect and most of our Uber rides downtown were less than $5. This was a nice surprise coming from San Francisco :) I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to others!
