Beautiful, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

This home couldn't have been more perfect for our first visit to Austin. First of all, the owners were super responsive and thoughtful. When we arrived, a welcome note, a bottle of wine, and some treats were waiting for us. The house was squeaky clean, the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed, and the bed was super comfortable. It was very hot outside when we visited in April so we actually couldn't wait to get back to the cool and comfy home at the end of the day. At night, we enjoyed watching fireflies in the backyard and playing vinyl records on the record player. Whenever we visit Austin we certainly will stay in this beautiful home again!

Great Location and House

  • 5 of 5

The house was great! We had plenty of space and had a great time. We loved the bottle of wine and chocolates!

Also -- the location is great for coming and going from the airport and getting late night burgers at In and Out and Whataburger!

Very nice location

  • 5 of 5

Convenient location for a mini-family reunion with our daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter. Close enough to all the excitement and food Austin has to offer but with enough amenities to just hang out at the house. Necessary items when traveling with a two-year-old (high chair, Pack-N-Play, toys, books, games) were available and set up when we arrived. We made excellent use of the backyard, grill and fire pit. Perfect for those cool evenings, sitting and relaxing. The owners were very responsive to all of our goofy questions. "Hey! Do you have a DVD player? No? Dang! Guess we should have asked that BEFORE hiking a mile to the RedBox and back with the granddaughter!" Our bad... ;) We ran out of propane for the gas grill while cooking up some mahi we got at the very conveniently located HEB. No problem! Finished them off in the oven and Gary replaced the bottle the very next day. Thoroughly enjoyed Zilker Park Botanical Garden as well as the Graffiti Park. If you have youngsters, don't miss the Thinkery Children's museum! We ate like idiots the whole time we were there. Amazing food! From the stuff we prepared ourselves from HEB or the Mueller Farmers Market (open every Sunday!!) in the nicely equipped kitchen to the multitude of amazing restaurants, to Jefe's taco truck parked just around the corner. Even a Whataburger within walking distance. Gary's recommendation of Via 313 introduced us to Detroit style pizza. All-in-all, a totally enjoyable and delicious visit... I just realized that in the entire week we were there, we didn't eat Bar-B-Que!! How did THAT happen?!? Now we have a reason to come back!

Owner's Response: Jerry and family - Thanks very much! We're glad that your family's visit was so enjoyable - and so delicious! It was a pleasure meeting all of you during "propane replacement operations." :) We look forward to hosting you again the next time you visit Austin!
