Perfect house for a large group visiting Austin!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great for a large group. There were plenty of beds and even pullout beds under the beds if you need more sleeping space! The house decor had so much Austin flair -we loved it. The pool and yard area was perfect to hangout in during the day. The neighborhood was quiet and nice. There was also a grocery store a couple blocks away which was very convenient and just a short walk if we needed anything. Not to mention, Brian was very helpful and super nice, answering all my questions since I booked my reservation. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and some of the group has already recommended the house to their friends and family coming to visit Austin later this summer!

Property well described & Brian is very communicative

  • 5 of 5

The property is perfect for what we needed in a guys weekend trip to Austin. The backyard is great for hanging out, and the house is in a good neighborhood. There are plenty of beds & places to fall down for what is described but the only drawback is the # of showers/bathrooms (2). This didn't bother us at all but beware if this is something your little heart desires.

The host was overly accommodating, and answered any questions we needed with a short response time. Thanks!
