Beautiful property. Well laid out for a large group.

  • 4 of 5

Lisa was a very responsive host. We hoped for some last minute changes and she was very helpful. We also had a LOT of questions. She was very patient while answering all of them throughout the process. We had a small maintenance issue and there was someone at the property with 90 minutes to correct it.The neighborhood is very comfortable. It was EXTREMELY well located for our purposes. Very convenient to the airport. The property is a perfect combination of public and private spaces. It allowed our large group (14) to gather together and when people needed a break from the whole group there were lovely spaces for a little alone time.

Big, comfortable house with great owners in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

The house comfortably fit 11 of us. Lisa could not have been nicer or more helpful throughout the process. I would love to go back if I find myself in Austin with a large group!

Chill neighborhood property, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great girls trip in Austin and stayed at this home nestled near South Congress. Recommend this place for big groups -- you could stay here all day and not get bored with all the activities hosts provide! Lisa was very accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed! The only feedback I have for the host family is to explicitly state in the rules what needed to be cleaned upon guest exit, so guests aren't paranoid they didn't check all the boxes (maybe that's my OCDness coming out, but it would've eased some of our concerns). Regardless, we enjoyed our time here and would happily book again!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Jonna. We really enjoyed hosting your group & happy you enjoyed yourselves. Prior to booking we do ask you read and agree to all rules which states: remove all trash, load dishwashers & I send a reminder before check-in with details. I am sorry if some of that was missed on my part. We decided we would not charge cleaning fees since we have found most folks prefer to manage their clean-up instead of paying $300 cleaning fees. I will add in remarks we can facilitate clean-up and it will be removed from deposit & that might keep all happy. Thanks so much for staying with us!

Exactly what we wanted!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect. We were in town for our daughters wedding, four different sets of relatives, from all over the country, each had their own bedroom area. The open living, dining and kitchen area allowed the entire family to gather in comfort. The kitchen was outstanding to prepare group meals and dining. We hosted the day after get together on the patio that was perfect for a relaxed and comfortable afternoon. It was like our own private resort with all the convenience of home.
