Great stay!

We had a group of 12 and the house worked out perfect for our group! It is in a great location and we enjoyed using the pool and outdoor areas. Brian was very helpful and responded very quickly if we needed anything. Would definitely recommend this place!

Literally Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This home is just special. It's SO cute inside, it is decorated perfectly for feeling like you're in Austin. Has everything you need. And the guesthouse is seriously adorable. The pool is perfect, it made for an even more affordable weekend, as we were able to just hang by the pool as an alternative to going out. The shed has bikes and coolers and such- we used both!

Brian and Leah were incredibly responsive and helpful when we had any questions as well. The home is located so centrally that it's a quick RideAustin or cab ride to anywhere. Would definitely stay again!!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We had a family wedding in Austin. Our NY group couldn't be happier. Ages from 6-85. The backyard and pool was great for entertaining family and friends that were staying in boring hotels, wishing they booked a house. The cabana was perfect for when my 85 yr old mom wanted quiet time and the house was a very comfortable setting with all the amenities we needed. Close to everything. Thank you Brian and Leah.

Great space and fantastic yard

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with a big group of girls for a girl's weekend and had plenty of space and really enjoyed the pool and back yard. Great location- easy cab to anything! The owners were also very nice and responsive to questions.

Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

This property is great. Plenty of room for a large family, having the guest house is the cherry on top! It is in walking distance to South Congress stores and restaurants and driving distance to everything else. The house is clean and neat feels like a hotel but better!

Amazing hosts, amazing home, Amazing location

  • 5 of 5

Brian and Leah were great hosts, always available for questions and quick to respond. The house was great, fit all of our guests comfortably and the pool and jacuzzi were a great addition! Close to everything, a super market within walking distance and downtown was a 10 min (cheap) cab ride. Would highly recommend this house for any stay in Austin!
