About Mary Sledd

Native Austinite.

Why Mary Sledd chose Austin

I love fixing up old houses. It was really fun to bring this place 'back to life' with a new kitchen and some bathroom updates. We also fixed up the old wood floors and gave the house a new coat of paint.

What makes this house unique

Close to lots of cool stuff, but tucked in a quite neighborhood.

Wonderful location and owner

  • 5 of 5

The property was just like the photos and perfect for our group. The location is quiet but within walking distance of numerous fun restuarants and a short cab/ride to downtown. Mary was very easy to work with. I would recommend this property to any group heading to Austin.

Perfect for our large group!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay during our 3 nights at this property. The property was exactly as described and the photos were accurate. Mary was very helpful with answering questions and helping us prepare for our trip. We had a large group of both couples and single people and this duplex had the perfect amount of privacy for our group. We all loved the decor and style of the inside! There are lots of boardgames and movies for downtime, if you have any while in Austin. The location was perfect for us as we were in town for a wedding at Mercury Hall. The house was a short Uber ride away from our evenings on 6th street (I think around $16 each way). We would defiantly stay here again. We didn't have any children staying with us on this trip, but we all felt it would be a perfect house to stay in if we had brought our kids, bunk beds, boardgames, a yard,etc. We loved the outdoor porch area, spent a lot of time out there. Thanks again Mary!

Perfect Large-Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our Thanksgiving reunion. We had family members come from the midwest and the south to meet in Austin. The set up of the house(s) is great because we were able to have the 'quiet' house for the adults and then the house for the 20 somethings that enjoyed a few of their nights out on 6th street. The outdoor patio/courtyard area was extremely useful to sit at the picnic table to talk and play games. The inside of the house is newly remodeled and the beds (plenty of them) are very comfortable. The only issue we had was with one the showers in the middle hallway that sprayed when turned on, but I am sure it was an easy maintenance issue that was taken care of. The location of the property is the perfect distance from downtown and SoCo area and is in a nice, quiet neighborhood. Also, very close to a grocery store (HEB) and great breakfast tacos (Torchy's Tacos). Overall, this property and all of the amenities provided by Mary and her family made for the perfect family get together in the amazing city of Austin! Definitely recommend a stay here!

Perfect location for group in town for annual conference

  • 5 of 5

We had a group staying at Mary's place for our annual conference. Couldn't have been better. Super fun and quiet place to hang/sleep and we could walk or bike to everywhere we needed to be. Will definitely stay here again next year!
