Experience Austin with this house!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house with a group of guys for the weekend of June 12-14. We thoroughly enjoyed this house for our short stay, however, I don't think we experienced it to the full potential. Like the other past renters have stated, this is a great location. I just wished we had more time to check out the restaurants and bars across the street. This includes the food truck picnic which we dined for lunch and seemed to always have a good crowd of people.

The area is great to get around by bike and having the Barton Springs Bike Rental Shop right below was perfect. Austin is a bike friendly city as there are bike lanes and bike shares throughout. One evening we decided to check out the area and biked to Zilker park, Barton Springs pool and to 6th Street. A local friend said the Barton Springs pool is apparently a great place to relieve a hangover and has an entrance fee of $3.

On our nights out, we took Uber to get around as it was very convenient and cheap to get to 6th Street.

The house itself was great. As we had 6 guys who did not want to double-up and each got their own bed with the sofa to spare. There was also plenty of clean white towels for us to use. One bathroom had no main door but it did have a toilet door, which I guess was more important. In my opinion, the outdoor patio was the best feature of the house. There's a grill for us to use and we had a BBQ gathering with drinks and music playing, and a great view overlooking the streets.

Lastly, I'd like to thank Annette as she was a pleasure to work with. She was willing to accommodate early check-in and late check-out if required. Great communication throughout to entire stay.

Great Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great property in a great location! Could walk out of the front door and have access to numerous restaurants and food trucks. The rental company was easy to deal with and made the stay very smooth. Would highly recommend.

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing location! 10 girlfriends rented this property for a long weekend in May 2015 for a bachelorette party. As we are all from out of town, we wanted somewhere centrally located so we could walk around and not rent a car. There was more than enough room for all of us, a large updated kitchen and living room, and a huge outdoor area with table, chairs, and barbecue that was perfect for cocktail hour.

We couldn't help but laugh to ourselves when we realized there is a famous juice bar at the foot of our driveway, a food truck trailer park (the famous Austin Picnic) a few feet away, and a bike rental shop right next door that offered us a discount. I'm not sure how we got so lucky.

The house was stocked with towels, kitchen accessories, and enough beds for all 10 of us. There is also air conditioning which came in handy on a hot weekend.

Annette was so accommodating with last minute check in and check out time changes on our end. She set up a large air mattress for us in a loft upstairs and we didn't have to use the pull out sofa in the living room, but we easily could have.

The house is within walking distance to the beautiful Zilker Park and Barton Springs pool. When we wanted to go downtown, Ubers and pedicabs were everywhere and easily to grab. We had a great weekend and can't wait to come back.
