Gretchen and Ben were extremely friendly and welcoming. Their home is the perfect getaway to mix work and leisure. Perfect location for SXSW. Walkable to everything, yet far enough away from all the noise. Perfect.

F1 fantastic! Gretchen even had the house painted Ferrari red for the GP weekend. Location was perfect to hit the local eateries (trailer) district as well as a very manageable walk to downtown. Will be our home away from home when in Austin. Great neighbors to boot!
