The house was outstanding. It easily accommodated our business group. It was comfortable and relaxing. The kitchen was very modern and well-equipped. The price was a value compared to the cost of hotel rooms. Excellent location near downtown and other attractions. Would definitely stay there again.
Courtney is absolutely wonderful; super responsive and accommodating. This place is HUGE. Perfect spot for our reunion weekend of 4 couples from business school. The location is great for getting to all the fun spots in Austin- 6th street, South Congress, Rainey Street, and the paths along the river. We got everywhere we wanted to go very quickly and conveniently!
When we arrived, the lights were on and the shades were up making us feel very welcomed. The listing was accurate. The neighborhood was nice and very quiet.
Courtney was wonderful. She arrived early and was very welcoming.
She took the time to explain all the details of her .
The neighborhood was lovely and convenient to downtown Austin.
She made us feel very welcome and the house couldn't have been more accommodating and cozy. The neighborhood was very quiet and homey as well. The little touches of the house were very appreciated, especially a fresh lit candle upon our welcome.
We had a girls weekend in Austin for a friend's birthday. This was the perfect house. Lots of space and plenty of bedrooms. Courtney was even nice enough to check-in a little early and check-out a little late. She was very accommodating to our flight schedules. The house was clean. The essentials were provided: bath towels, beach towels, hand soap, etc. The kitchen also had all the necessities: pots, pans, spices, utensils, glasses, etc. we cooked breakfast in the morning so it was very convenient. Also, there is a large table-- so we could all sit together.
The pool was the perfect addition. Don't forget your bug spray. We were out at the fenced/private pool ALL afternoon (in August), and definitely attracted some bugs. The pool area was clean. There wasn't a lot of space around the pool, but there was a whole other section to the backyard so we continued our fun in that area.
The neighborhood was very nice. It was quiet. We found out the "neighbors" next door were also renting for the weekend. You could walk to things if you needed to-- things were about 1 mile away. A short taxi cab got you to downtown and SoCo.
Overall, excellent stay. Perfect for what we needed. House is great! Updated kitchen and nice size bedrooms. Also, there is a driveway area if you bring a car and want it off the street.
Lastly, she didn't make you do a lot of "cleaning" when you left. Take out the trash and put dishes in the dishwasher. Simple! Less stress and no worry when you leave.
Very memorable weekend!
We had a really nice stay here. We were a group of six co-workers, all ladies, that needed space for strategy planning and team building. It really worked out perfectly and for the price we couldn't have had anything nearly as flexible at a hotel. Everyone had their own bedroom and most of us had our own bathroom. The kitchen was well equipped and the outside area was fabulous - in fact we invited a few other local coworkers over for dinner one night and it was great. I would definitely like to have my team here again next year.
