We had a fantastic stay here. The house was beautifully decorated with very cool art work, it was a comfortable environment, the paint colors for the home were bold and intense but in this awesome way, and the location was perfect. We had our kids so access to fun things was a must. The lovely Zilker park was only a 5 minute drive away, tons of fun things to do there. I was amazed at how fast we could get to downtown and directions were a breeze, the house is very close to a main thoroughfare but we were not bothered by traffic at all. It was so nice to be close to grocery stores, fun shopping, and great restaurants. Again, for families, you're only 15 minutes away from the amazing Thinkery! It's a must see.
We really loved staying at this home, and would highly recommend it to people with or without kids. The property manager was also very good about checking in and making sure we had what we needed. While we were there, a severe thunder and lightening storm struck the city and our host was very nice and thoughtful to send an email to make sure we were okay.
We'd love to stay here again and hope to be back to Austin in the fall.
I had great communication with the host from the start. The house was clean, modern, and very close to all that Austin has to offer. There were several places to eat really close to the house (walking distance) and on the days we cooked at the house the kitchen worked out great. Overall we all had a great time, a great place to rent.
Karen let us take occupancy early since we were there and it was ready, which really helped us out. We loved the welcome bottle of wine (with which we made Gluhwein for Christmas Eve!) We most especially appreciated the location of the rental. Walking to the Magnolia Café, Zilker Park and the grocery store was great.
Because we had an infant with us Karen helped us with a website through which we could find rentals we needed. So appreciated that! When the neighbors could not get cable ( which fed from our rental) she immediately was on it and we were able to resolve that. Great care was taken of all of us.
Great home in close walking distance to restaurants, grocery, & town lake. The house was newly renovated, clean, and had everything we needed. Highly recommend!
We were completely happy with the place, the location, and our interaction with the host. For ACL the location worked out perfectly, being truly walking distance to the park and a few other places closeby, like the wonderful restaurant Magnolia's!
Host was very hospitable and was able to accommodate our request to check-in early and check-out late. The house was perfect for our group in regards to the amount of space, number of bathrooms, and layout. We were very pleased to find that the house was indeed as pictured online. Would definitely stay here again if we returned to Austin.
