About Bob Easter

About the owner: Our passion is to provide an outstanding property where our guests will continue to come back year after year. We have a large family with 11 grandchildren and more to come so having a home large enough for families to be able to come to Austin and share a home with friends is important for us. We are serious organic gardeners so our home and landscape is never treated with pesticides. This property was carefully remodeled to make your stay as comfortable as possible, yet reasonable in price. You will be impressed with the wonderful decor and amenities.

Bob Easter purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Bob Easter chose Austin

The Heart of North Austin is centered around Burnet Road. An older location which is finding favor with new families and older seniors. The Pillow Blue Ribbon Elementary is located two blocks away with a wonderful playground for grandchildren. Or take a walk down to a local restaurant. Jump in the car for a quick trip to The Domain, a shopping experience you will not want to miss during your visit.

What makes this apartment unique

An accessory apartment with a stone patio, organic landscaped shaded yard. Super location but until you experience getting around in Austin, this location will save you time by having everything close by. Traffic is a problem in Austin so choose your location wisely.

A little touch of Heaven...

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this property for four months, while waiting for my retirement date to arrive. My wife was already living in our retirement home across the state, so I needed a comfortable, convenient place to stay for those four months. I was extremely lucky to find this property and to have it available for me to rent. It is fully furnished, very comfortable, and the landlord (Bob) is a pleasure to work with. He took care of my every need and went above and beyond to attend to a very minor issue with the TV/internet connection. He has always responded to me within an hour and even provided some veggies from his organic garden when they were in season. I do not hesitate to recommend this apartment for a single or a couple looking for a furnished place, with all linens, paper products, and starter supplies provided. Cable TV and high-speed internet are also included. And, it is in the heart of a wealth of restaurants and shopping too, so you can find just about anything you want within a few minutes walk or drive. If you're looking for a rental in this area, go see this one and hurry! You won't be sorry.

Owner's Response: Joe, You were amazing during your stay. Thank you for being such a great tenant and a very neat person. To know the place worked well for you is exactly why we pay so much attention to making sure the apartment really is like our posting on VRBO. There is a reason so many people continue to book with us again and again. Some have been coming for over 7 years and staying from six days to four months. We are so excited that you are finally located in your retirement home in the East Texas piney woods. What a beautiful place to retire. Always know you have another home in Austin to come back and visit friends. Bob

Cozy, Clean, and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I spent a month in Austin to be close to my daughter and family. This place was perfect for me! The photos on the website are not deceiving. It is just as appealing and cozy as the photos show. It was clean and bright, and unlike other properties I've rented, paper products, laundry detergent, and other essentials were even included. The location is convenient to so many restaurants, shops, and other attractions, and the owner was accommodating and available at all times. I would definitely like to stay there again.

Owner's Response: It was such fun to have you enjoy your stay with us to visit your family and granddaughter. Our goal is to make sure our travelers have to bring their suitcase and food for a relaxing and fun visit. Please always remember this is your new Home Away from Home.

Perfect Place with Perfect Owners

  • 5 of 5

When my girlfriend and I arrived at our original AirBnB home reservation in Austin and it was not-as-advertised, we began to panic. We hurriedly reached out to hosts on several sites hoping to find someone who could accommodate us at the last minute. Not only did Bob respond quickly, but he made our transition to his property seamless. I cannot overstate how helpful and accommodating Bob was during our stay in Austin. I highly recommend him and his property to anyone looking for a well-maintained, affordable, friendly stay in Austin.

Our favorite place to stay in Austin

  • 5 of 5

We visit our children in Austin 2-3 times/year. We prefer this property to a variety of accommodations we have used throughout the years. It is a gem; exceptionally clean, quiet, comfortable and has everything you need for a great stay. The location can't be beat with easy access to highways, restaurants, shopping, movie theatres...

Bob is a great host, available for any questions and makes your stay special. We are disappointed when his property is already booked and we attempt to modify our travel dates to be able to stay at this property. We look forward to our future stays at this exceptional property.

Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end our experience with Bob and this home was perfect. Bob was super helpful in communicating and accommodating our personal needs. The home was very clean, comfortable and a perfect location to get around town quickly. We especially loved the Antique "Mall" within walking distance. We went downtown easily, enjoyed meals at the historic Hoffbrau Steakhouse and The Green Chile, walked thru the historic Driscoll Hotel, and saw The Monkees at the Paramount Theatre. The house had all of the equipment and little necessities we needed to be "at home" for a week:) If we ever get back to Austin and need a place to stay...this is it!

Owner's Response: Suzanne, we loved having you stay with us. Thank you for being such great travelers. Your family was so fun to meet when you arrived. Thank you for leaving our home so nice and neat. We are happy you loved the location. Our travelers are amazed at the number of restaurants and shopping are so close. We are glad you were able to experience Austin and be sure to come back to see us. Bob

clean and well stocked, great for longer stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for 2 months during a travel nursing assignment. Bob was always available. The apartment had everything from linens to kitchen appliances that I would have in my own apartment. The location is very close to major highways which made it easy to get around. About a 15-20 min drive downtown. 5 min or less to The Domain. There is a small backyard with a table and chairs if you wanted to spend some time outside with friends. There is parking in the driveway and a separate, fenced entrance to the apartment. It is connected by walls to the rest of the house but not with any doors/windows- I never had an issue hearing anyone in the main house.

Owner's Response: Natalie, we are so lucky to have traveling nurses stay with us. They always take care of the property and love the peace and quiet of the location. They also, like you realize how easy it is to get around and how many places to eat and shop with the Domain and Arboretum less that a mile and half away. Our travelers are always surprised at how fully equipped the kitchen is for a quick snack or full size cooked meal. They also love how the apartment has all of the supplies like soaps for bath, kitchen, laundry, paper products and bath tissue. Just bring your suitcase because if you stay with us once, you will come back home again and again.
