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.

Great house, great price, great location, great people!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Awesome Experience!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Beautiful Garage Apartment--great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a weekend here for our anniversary and absolutely loved this rental property. In renting a garage apartment, my concerns were privacy, and also it being hot--but I wanted to rest anyone's concerns because it perfect! There is a completely private entrance detached from the main house, and the apartment is very well insulated. Pictures do not do it justice! The owners were wonderful to work with and Misty was incredibly helpful planning our trip. Close to several wineries, The Salt Lick, and several swimming holes. We will definitely be back!

Great Hill Country Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised at how much room there was in this apartment. The finishes are very nice and you have your own covered porch and to hang out at next to the pool. David and Misty were very attentive and super nice even though we hardly saw them. Great base if you want to see Austin and the Hill Country. Would definitely stay here again!

We had such a great stay. It was a wonderful location to explore the area from and a really inviting place. The owners were welcoming & we loved the dinner spots they recommended. The pool was a pleasant way to end the day. Thanks!
