About Ben Erickson
I love to travel and have set up my home to be traveler/group friendly on arrival. Too often when you arrive to a vacation home there is a "wait a minute, where is _____" moment. My home will be the opposite of that. I am available anytime in advance of your stay for questions and my goal is to make your Austin experience a positive one.
Ben Erickson purchased this House in 2014
Why Ben Erickson chose Cherry Creek
OUTSIDE: 23 trees in the newly installed back yard that includes fake grass so the kids stay clean. Chiminea fire pit/seating area with lighting...it's a nice shady oasis from the Austin heat. Screened in porch with gas BBQ. INSIDE: Downstairs is designed for groups/entertaining. Open floor plan. Wood floors. Sonos wireless speakers throughout the downstairs. 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 owner who travels often and knows what makes a guests experience memorable.
What makes this House unique
This house was designed for comfort and relaxation. Our guests commonly say the same thing after their stay...."this house is so well kept and organized, you thought of everything"

Perfect for our golf trip
We were in Austin to golf during a busy week as there was a festival going on in the city. This place was big enough for all our needs and it was a great experience. Very simple instructions to follow to gain access. Beds were nice. Couches were also nice and more than big enough to sleep on. We probably could have comfortably slept at least 14 people, we had 11.
There is a nearby grocery store and liquor store which was great. There are some food options close by, but we ventured out of the area for our meals. Uber ride to bars/restaurants/shops was only 10-15 minutes, and we rarely had to wait longer than 10 minutes for a driver to arrive.
The back yard is awesome and we highly recommend spending some time out there. We brought a cornhole (or bags as it's also known) set and had a blast.
Great house. Plenty of room. Ben was so responsive to everything.
Great home and location, very clean with lots of amenities.
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.
As of 3.9.18 we have cable (live) TV along with Apple TV. Thanks for being a great guest Russell!
Clean, comfy, quiet house
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.
To any future guests reading this:
*I have communicated with this guest directly to address their concerns to make sure we had corrected any issues:
*Wine glasses: there are 12 wine glasses in the cupboard with the other glasses
*The "curiously missing" kitchen items was missing lids to cooking pots. Our kitchen is large with lots of cupboards and some things had been placed in an adjacent cupboard.
*I have replaced the feather bed cover in question.
A few FYI's for future guests:
I am a chef & use the kitchen to cook serious meals for large groups of friends. This is the first time anyone has said the kitchen was missing anything. I would say it is overstocked with supplies and am happy to answer questions about specific kitchen items anytime prior to a guests arrival. For instance, in the past I have emailed photos and measurements of our oven to groups cooking holiday meals. There is also very (very:) detailed diagram on the fridge showing the location of everything in our kitchen. For instance, wine are in the glasses cupboard on the top shelf.
I am extremely responsive to inquiries about our home before and during the rental. Our goal is for guests to leave saying “that was an amazing house” and our reviews support this. We are here to make sure your stay in Austin, and our home, is comfortable and memorable. We have spent enormous amounts of time and effort to make our home and the backyard welcoming and well thought out. We are happy to provide further detail anytime and look forward to having you.
Very comfortable house
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!
The property was perfect!
