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!

Absolutely perfect!

The house and guest house are so charming, clean and well-appointed. The yard and pool are gorgeous - we spent our days BBQing and swimming. We all wished we could stay longer! Thank you so much!

Perfect Property

  • 5 of 5

We visited Austin in July for a bachelor party and this property was a perfect choice. Brian and Leah were responsive, transparent, detailed, and ultimately exceptional hosts. The house fit 10 guests comfortably and we had no issues with sleeping arrangements. Additionally, the property had a great proximity to all of the hot spots and a grocery store right around the corner in case you don't rent a car during your stay. Big thanks to Brian and Leah - 5 stars!

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!!
