About Rachel

Our first home, Lansbury, has all the things a family needs for a fun getaway. We enjoy having a house 5 minutes from downtown Austin where traffic is never an issue. We hope you find our home as relaxing, convenient and cozy as our returning guests do.

Rachel purchased this house in 1999

Why Rachel chose Austin

Austin is the funnest town in Texas! With live music every night of the week and big town amenities with small town feel there is something for everyone.

Visit the capitol, paddle a kayak on Lady Bird Lake or have sushi at a renowned restaurant.

What makes this house unique

Huge oak and pecan trees, peace and quiet can be found in the middle of town at Lansbury.

We had 6 adults and 3 children staying this property. Place was clean, plenty of space for us. Kids loved the play set in the backyard. We stayed here for ACL, was a 20 minute drive to Zilker. Home Away backstage hospitality area at ACL was a great unexpected plus. We'd book this one again.

Overall, comfortable stay, close to UT and downtown.

We had a comfortable month long stay here while in Austin. The listing is as described and photos are accurate. Great layout and amenities. Property was clean upon arrival. Lots of linens and towels provided. Large private backyard. Communication and service was great with owner, very kind and responsive. Would give it 4 star, but had to deal with cockroaches during our stay from day 1, so not as pleasant as it could have been. Owner was great to respond with pest control and other smaller issues. Also, master bed boxspring was very squeaky. We would probably stay in another part of town next time as the neighborhood is a bit less desired, as other reviewers have mentioned. Overall, appreciate the home and owner in accommodating our family's stay.

Comfortable property, close to everything.

  • 3 of 5

This property was perfect for our family. My daughter who recovered there from a difficult delivery, found it very comfortable.

My grandson really loved the back yard and we had fun chasing and capturing fireflies. The kitchen was fantastic with plenty of room, not to mention the abundance of dishware and utensils. The inside of the house was very spacious and fun for a 4yr old to play hide and seek. Thank you Rachel for lending us your home,. We hope to return if its available.

Comfortable stay

  • 4 of 5

This house was great for a family with kids. Although it is a bit dated the modern touches give it a nice vibe! The bunk beds allow a big family to sleep comfortably. The kitchen is nice and big and the backyard has a fun play area for the kids. Cons: although it is located about 10 min to downtown the location of the house is in a sketchy neighborhood. Also, the bunk beds in one of the rooms feels a bit unstable. Over all our stay was great and would stay again if I needed to!

Definition of home away from home.

  • 4 of 5

I have to say that the house was just as described. Rooms were spacious and had plenty beds for everyone to sleep in. Most houses I would have to take a air mattress but not this time. Favorite part was the tree house and slide in the backyard. The kiddies Ioved it!. Would definitely stay again.
