About David Squire
Individual owner of property. Professional business working in downtown Austin.
David Squire purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why David Squire chose Driftwood
Quiet get-away with all the amenities. Far enough from the busy city life to enjoy the peace and quiet yet close enough to take in everything Austin and the surrounding Hill Country has to offer!
What makes this Apartment unique
See the bright stars at night! Just a few miles away from the wineries, breweries, and local restaurants like Pieous, Trattoria Lisina, Hays City Store and the infamous Salt Lick.

A hidden paradise in Driftwood with the warmest hosts ever!
Halt the search and get those bags packed NOW, HomeAway -- you've found the ultimate unicorn: an idyllic paradise with every amenity you can think of that you will never want to leave with hosts that are just as -- if not more -- amazing.
Let that incredibly long run-on sentence illustrate that there are literally no words to describe how awesome of an experience we had staying at this Driftwood paradise!
It's not fair to just say that David & Misty's property was incredible, & like many other reviewers, I will "+1" & say that the pictures on here do not do the property justice. You are staying in their guesthouse and have your own entrance to come and go as you please. Special care and attention were taken in decorating and outfitting every facet and corner of the guest property; it's as if your every need has been anticipated prior to your arrival. #MistyMagic!
We booked our stay because my little sister & her husband were visiting from Palm Springs and desperately wanted to spend a long weekend in the Hill Country. David greeted us upon our arrival, and Misty frequently checked on us, asking if there was anything we needed. She was careful to give us our own space, but honestly, we had such a blast hanging out with her and other members of her family that we had hoped they would come to hang out with us more!
Now about this outdoor kitchen and shaded, lush, backyard paradise. Y'all. Y'ALL.
The outdoor kitchen was THE business, outfitted with stainless steel appliances including a grill, sink, stovetop and oven, large beverage cooler, ice maker (such a godsend for a Texas summer!), TV, comfortable seating, bathroom. We did the majority of our entertaining and cooking outdoors in the spacious kitchen. HEB is about 10-15 minutes away in case you need to restock on provisions.
And can we talk about this pool?! Feature-rich with jets, color lights, waterfall, deep end, and an infinity side wall with bar stools & room to entertain at the pool. The hot tub was roomy, temperature controlled, & perfect for deep discussions about Game of Thrones, diversifying your portfolio, & how the world would cease to exist without the power of the feminine energy.
We had such a memorable time and are so grateful David & Misty opened up their home to us and allowed us to celebrate an informal family reunion at their home.
PS. They have a trampoline, too! WHAT
PPS. You're also super close to Salt Lick, but this house is so awesome you won't even want to go
Beautiful setting for family fun with everything you would need for a home away from home.
Will definitely be back. We have rented many spaces in America and Canada and this property is 25 minutes from South Austin. It is in a very secluded neighborhood with very large lots. You have privacy in the country with all of luxuries you would want for fun outside enjoyment with your family. A gorgeous large pool, large hot tub, full outside kitchen/living space with private restroom. The pool has a wonderful waterfall on one end with shallow and deep sections. Perfect pool and hot tub temperatures. The pool and the hot tub are adjacent to each other. Lots of sitting spaces with tables, covered and open air throughout the property. The cabana is covered with comfy seats and an outside TV and gas fire pit. The outside kitchen has a tv also with a fabulous Bluetooth sound system to play your own music choices from your phone.
Very well maintained and detailed upkeep. Everything seemed new and fully equipped. The home is a 2 bedroom apartment above the garage. Fully stocked with everything you would need. Very clean home and well maintIned. My family and I were very comfortable but honestly were outside for our entire visit and went inside only to sleep.
I chose this home also due to the very attentive hosts. She invited me a few days early to tour the property and to see if I had any questions. So friendly and kind. She told me we could text her with any questions during our stay and we did. We also were allowed to bring our small dogs and there is artificial grass on many areas and found that mud and dirt were not a problem. Perfect hosts! They want your stay to be perfect and they want to make you happy while they respect your privacy. The family wants to start making plans for our next stay here. We will!
**there is a light of steps to your living quarters. Not a problem at all for us but keep it in mind if needed. The property itself is very easy to walk with only a couple steps here and there.
Great Hosts, Great Place, felt like family! It’s all you could want.
Thank you Misty and David for being just solid good people. I’m gonna miss you!
Great hosts and apartment
Great place to stay. Clean and comfortable. Would stay here again.
Great house, great price, great location, great people!
Misty and David are wonderful homeowners and hosts. They are very concerned about the comfort and needs of their guests, are very friendly, and completely respectful of your privacy. The pool and outdoor kitchen area are great and the location is nice. Off the beaten path, very quiet, and only 15-20 minutes to all the shopping and recreation you may need during your stay. I highly recommend this location as well will recommend it to any friends or family we have in town if unable to accommodate ourselves.
Our Driftwood rental was delightful. The apartment met all of our needs. We were able to entertain extended family in the wonderful outdoor kitchen and in the luxurious pool/hot tub area.
The owners and their kids made us feel right at home. They were very accommodating and helpful.
We came to the Austin area for the birth of our Grandson. What a blessing!
We both feel very fortunate to have also become friends with Misty, David and their children.
So, "Thank You" from the bottom of our hearts. We now have even more reasons to come back to Austin!
This elegant garage apartment was built in 2013 and is located atop a 3 car detached garage behind the main house structure of our residence on 2.63 acres. The pool and summer kitchen are adjacent to the detached garage and accessible by guests.
