About the Property
You will love this house - please read our reviews for an outside opinion!
Our home is in a sweet and safe neighborhood with friendly neighbors. Walking distance to several parks with play structures for picnics and activities for children. It’s a quiet neighborhood, though accepting of an occasional night to celebrate outdoors.
We both travel often and have designed our house to be the type of place that WE would want to rent. It's set up to be turnkey for groups. We’ve never had a complaint and our reviews are a good thing to check out as they’re unbiased opinions about our house. We make a lot of effort to make it nice, clean and welcoming. It is not a house that has been partied in or thrashed by groups. We use a the same cleaner for each stay and have a separate house manager who along with us, make sure the house looks beautiful when you arrive. We have Sonos wireless speakers throughout the downstairs, nice newly done backyard with fake grass, screened porch with lots of seating, gas BBQ, outdoor fire area with marshmallow roasting sticks and good outdoor lighting for hanging at night. Please scroll thru all the photos and read the detailed info below. It should answer any questions you have:
We regularly sleep 15-18 people, and have slept 22.
We have 4 full bedrooms:
*3 are upstairs with queen beds & 1 shared bathroom

Food & groceries we like/near our house:
*shopping center that includes grocery & liquor store and lots of food options 2mins from the house. Whole Foods/Costco and 3 gyms nearby.
*breakfast anytime tacos really: Torchy's tacos about 10mins from the house in the same shopping complex as Whole Foods and Costco. Torchy's is amazing for breakfast, lunch or Austin staple. The Democrat taco is our fav and the queso is a must order. Torchy's: 4301 W William Cannon Dr. Austin, Texas 78749
*tacos a bit further away: 1500 Spyglass Dr, Austin, TX 78746
*Texas BBQ experience a bit out of the way - The Salt Lick is an Austin where we take all our "first time to Austin" friends. They don't take reservations, its a massive place that can feed like 600 people at a can BYOB or BYO anything you want to drink. We provide coolers at the house for you to borrow. 18300 FM 1826, Driftwood, TX 78619
*Franklins BBQ - arguably the most famous spot in Austin. The trick to not waiting 3-5hrs in line is to download the "Task Rabbit" smart phone app and find the woman who's specialty is "waiting in line at Franklins for you" charges $40-60 to wait in line for 3-5hrs for pay for your order AND deliver it to the house. Life saver
*Valentina’s BBQ - food truck on Manchaca about 10mins from the house
Things to do:
*Barton Springs Pool at Zilker Park - most amazing pool we’ve ever seen. Fed by a natural spring this water is the same temperature year round. Crystal clear and very clean.
*Texas Football - in the fall there’s nothing like a UT home game on a Saturday
*6th Street nightlife - for the young or the young at heart. Thursday thru Sat night 6th street is closed to vehicles and is a massive gathering of people spilling out of the bars and restaurants
*Rainey Street restaurants & nightlife - an older crowd then 6th street. Great restaurant options
*South Congress Street - by day or night. Lots of shopping, fun stores, good people watching. You can park and spend an afternoon or evening here. Amy’s Ice Cream, the Continental Club, Home Slice Pizza, amazing restaurant options
*Lake Austin or Lake Travis: lots of options for patio or speed boat rental. April-October its generally warm enough to be in the water
*Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center - large well kept botanic garden
