*Franklins BBQ - arguably the most famous spot in Austin.

Why Ben Erickson chose South Austin

Outside: 23 trees in the newly installed back yard that includes fake grass so the kids stay clean. The yard has a fire pit/seating area and great nighttime lighting for outdoor hands. An amazing shady oasis from the heat.

Inside: downstairs is built for large groups/entertaining. Open floor plan. Wood floors. Sonos wireless speakers throughout the downstairs so you can easily DJ while hanging. Large kitchen facing/connected to the living room/breakfast area so you feel included no matter where you are. Immaculately kept house set up by owners who travel full time and know what makes a guests experience memorable.

What makes this house unique

This house was designed for comfort and relaxation. Every person that comes to the house says the same thing...."this house is so well kept and relaxing"

Great Stay. FAbulous Home.

  • 5 of 5

Oh, wow. So my adult daughter would be getting her graduate degree. Family, friends coming from different states and Central America. This home in Austin slept 12 comfortably. Others stayed in surrounding hotels. But we loved everything about this home. The kitchen well stocked with anything I needed to cook for a party. Spacious, good seating, beautiful outdoor space, nice lighting, plenty of towels and bedding... Nice neighborhood, and great instructions from Ben. Our family event was tops because this home came with everything it promised. We're now talking about making this a yearly family reunion! We were thrilled with our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We try very hard to make our house a “home away from home.” We’re so glad you enjoyed the back yard. It was years of small projects to make it comfortable like it is now. And we use zero water as the grass is synthetic. Trying to do our part. Please come again!

Clean, comfy, quiet house

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this house in a convenient location in Austin, about 20 min. from the airport. It’s easy to get into town and there are multiple shopping centers nearby.

The house has a spacious kitchen, plenty of utensils, great assortment of lids, but some cookware curiously missing. Fortunately we didn’t do a lot of cooking, other than breakfast. Plenty of bedrooms to accommodate our family with comfortable beds. Bathrooms are stocked with plenty of soap and toilet paper.

Unfortunately we didn’t get to enjoy the back yard due to the weather, it did look like a nice space.

We would have liked some regular wine glasses, and Ben, please replace the feather bed with a regular mattress cover. It seems the featherbed has been laundered and feels like straw. That being said, we wouldn’t hesitate to rent again, thank you for making your house available.

Great home and location, very clean with lots of amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Easy access off the freeways, close to shopping and restaurants, neat quiet neighborhood.

We would like to have known more clearly that there was only Apple TV, no live TV. Overall wonderful home and if we were back in Austin we would try to go there again.

Very comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here to visit or grand-kids and could not have been more pleased with our stay. The neighborhood and lot were very private with little or no noise. The house itself was quite comfortable and was equipped with everything we needed on the ground floor. Since the weather outside was rainy, we were unable to use the yard and screened room adjacent to the kitchen. We would definitely stay here again!

Excellent service by the owner, Ben. Very clean and great for a family.

  • 5 of 5

Ben, the owner, was fantastic. I had a little trouble using the Apple TV (I'm low tech) and Ben was 100% available to help. You can tell he is a great guy and committed to his guests enjoying their stay. We had family over for the Superbowl and this was a perfect house for that. We loved the gas fireplace and also the outdoor area which had a fire pit, seating, and really nice lighting.The house was also very clean and stocked with all the items you would need.
