About Ashley Kimery
We have four children and absolutely love Austin and the surrounding Hill Country. I grew up in Austin and returned after college to raise my family there. I grew up water skiing on many of the area lakes. After many vacations all over the world, I still think Austin has the prettiest sunsets ever! I also absolutely love that you can go almost anywhere in casual clothing.
Ashley Kimery purchased this House in 2006
Why Ashley Kimery chose Sky Forest
We bought this property for its incredible views and spacious acreage as well as the highly acclaimed school district. However, we soon discovered that the older neighborhood was filled not only with eclectic and groovy homes, but owners as well! The guest cottage is a comfortable and casual 70's style split-level house with modern conveniences.
What makes this House unique
Location, Location, Location! The West Lake Hills area of Austin is safe, within 15-30 minutes of anywhere you want to go, and the rolling hills are absolutely beautiful. The views from the upper covered deck and poolside are just as beautiful at night as they are during the day. This home and neighborhood are hidden jewels in the hill country just west of Austin. You feel as though you are in the country with the wide open spaces, but you are one mile from a major highway which can take you to the festive nightlife in downtown Austin, or the vibrant SoCo (South Congress) area south of downtown. The F1 racetrack is less than 20 miles away. For those interested, there are helicopter shuttles that run to/from the nearby Barton Creek Resort & Spa (just down the road) and the Circuit of the Americas.

Great Thanksgiving week...
Thanksgiving week with our 3 adult children. The home was very comfortable with the best stocked kitchen we’ve rented in the past 12 years. The porch was a little bit of heaven - beautiful views! Made our way around Austin easily from the location. Would definitely stay again.
Great place !
Everything went perfect owners were very responsive and helped us out we will definitely be back
We really enjoyed the house! Great location with amazing views! Everything was up to par with listing specs.
We had a great time!
The property was perfect for a weekend getaway.
The house was clean and there was plenty of things to do between the beautiful pool and pool table. There was also a wonderful view of the fireworks at Barton Creek from the house. That was a wonderful surprise ending to a great long weekend away.
A great place for a meetup
We found this place for our meetup in Austin. We are a group of people we met online and this was the 1st time we met face to face. This house was perfect, great location, great amenities (the pool with that view is awesome). Ashley was great from the start and was very flexible. One minor thing (so minor we didn't even contact Ashley about it) was the grill didn't have any propane tank connected. I can't recommend this place enough, and if we meet up in Austin again (which unless Torchys spreads out, will happen again) Id rent this place in a heartbeat.
15-20 minutes to almost anywhere in Austin. 7 miles to Downtown and SoCo. 19 miles to the Circuit of the Americas (F1 racing). 6 miles to Lake Austin.
