No pets, no smoking, no parties (unless you make special arrangements) Thank you for respecting my special home.
We had a wonderful stay during ACL. There was a group of 9 of us staying in the 5 bedrooms. Very spacious and beautiful home that was perfect for a large group. The home had everything and then some, except for an iron, but the host offered to have a neighbor bring one over. We will definitely be back.
Karen is a fabulous host! The neighborhood is in a great location. The house was great for our group. The beds are really comfortable! The listing did say sleeps up to 13, but the house is probably too small for that many, so I'd keep it to 10 max. There are three bedrooms downstairs, and upstairs is an open concept (2 bedrooms that are open at the top because both have stairs leading to the top) that would be great for kiddos. The house has been very well cared for and is stocked with everything you could need. The pool and hot tub felt like an extension of the indoors, and we all really enjoyed relaxing by and in both.
Our family visited this warm and wonderful Austin home in April 2014. The house is absolutely lovely and the neighborhood is perfect for exploring all parts of Austin. This home has been completely and lovingly renovated and our host has taken painstaking care with every little detail. The house is worth staying at simply to appreciate all of the architectural features which kept us talking and thinking about when we next consider a building project. Karen is so welcoming. She has hospitality in her blood. She made us feel right at home and we loved being her guests. We would love to return some day!
Karen was an AMAZING host, only being exceeded by her beautiful home. This modern delight is a very artsy and spacious home located about a 5-7 minute drive from downtown Austin. Our party of six was more than pleased with our stay and Karen (leaving food,beer,snacks and directions amongst other things) made sure of it. 100% recommend this host and venue for your stay in Austin.
Thank you Karen!
Karen was a marvellous host, it was the little touches like leaving us a kite to take the Austin kite festival on the 9th March, American's oldest kite festival that first started back in 1929. Her home is truely stunning and from the moment we arrived we all felt at home. The design of the house has a natural flow and nice energy. The heated spa even got several nights use even though it was freezing outside. Imagine our surprise at being able to turn on the spa on our way home or sending music to any room in the house including the roof top terrace. I'll be coming back to Austin and this will be the only place where I will be staying. Thanks a million Karen!
