Beautiful Home + Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a fantastic time during our stay in this beautiful home! Christi was fabulous- so easy to communicate with, very accommodating, and made check in/out super easy! The kitchen/living area is perfect for hanging out and relaxing. We cooked most of our meals while there- the kitchen is fantastic and had everything we needed. The backyard is just gorgeous and makes for a beautiful view out the back windows. We were there for SXSW and found the location to be absolutely perfect. Far enough away to not feel trapped by the crowds but close enough to easily walk downtown. There are also a bunch of great restaurants and bars only minutes away (walking minutes- not driving). Definitely recommend this house!

Clean, spacious and a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Christi's place is exactly as promised...clean, very convenient to Zilker park, cozy. If you forgot to pick up butter at HEB market, no worries, there is some in the fridge. Need to sit out a long night in the shaded backyard?...not a problem. It's worth the extra spend to be within true walking distance to the show. Enjoy!

Great location to Zilker and local restaurants

  • 5 of 5

We came in for a bike race at Zilker and location was perfect. House was clean and neighborhood nice and quite. Also great number of restaurants within walking distance. Actually my favorite was UCHI which is right down the block. Nice owner and very easy to work with.
