This property is beautiful and I highly recommend it if you are wanting to cook and use this house as a home base for exploring downtown Austin, Texas! The location is perfect and the history of the home is fun and interesting. A great place to eat is the Salty Sow. The property is very clean, well maintained and customer service is exceptional! The management is more interested that you have an enjoyable time on the property than adhering to stringent rules about the house which was very relaxing. The kitchen is a cook's dream kitchen especially if you have several people helping to prepare the meals. There are 2 of everything!! So easy and fun to cook together in that kitchen. The hot tub was really great and was heated when we got there which was awesome. The beds are very comfortable. The bathrooms are wonderful. The outdoor areas are fun to explore. It felt isolated although being right in the middle of town. The outdoor screened porch with the fire pit was awesome. We roasted marshmallows and sang silly songs. Some things to note if you are planning to watch movies with several people on the big screen is that there is only room for 2 people to watch on the couch in front of the screen. The large sectional couch does not face the TV screen. The big screen is old technology so not very sharp. The internet for the house and TV needs improving. It is old and very slow. There is basic cable on the TV's. This may not be a problem if you aren't going to use internet or the TV very much. Also, the coffee maker is small and doesn't work. We went to Starbucks to pick up coffee but we would have loved to have a nice coffee maker on the property. There is not whole house music although they have it on the porch and in the work out room. All in all, you will have fun when you stay here!!
We spent one week in this very well maintained, clean and upgraded property. The owner was very responsive and accommodating. The location is great, just 10 min away from restaurants, groceries, cafes, and other retail stores. The view of the lake is awesome, either from the deck or the house itself. The owner have a great sense of hospitality and made sure we had everything we needed (and more). The kitchen is large and well equipped. The bathrooms and bedrooms are roomy and confortable. I would recommend this place to anybody.
