Wonderful space, great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with another couple, for South by Southwest. The house was perfect for us. We especially loved the private outdoor space and the proximity to downtown. The property owner was so accommodating, and even allowed us to check in early. I highly reccomend this property!

very convenient location

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and well kept. We were there for a weekend but were really only at the house to sleep. The location is quite convenient, whether accessing downtown Austin or MOPAC for heading out of town, plus the ability to walk to the lake and the restaurants there was very nice. I would certainly stay here again.
