  • Karyn's home is beautiful and wonderfully equipped. She stocked it full of goodies for my pals and I, and we had a great time staying here. She was easy to get in touch with at all times, and very helpful. 5/5 would stay again.

  • extremely accommodating! there is only one real bed, a pull out, and an air mattress, but it is more than made up for like an expansive kitchen, hardwood floors & a washer/dryer. The hosts left us beer, champagne, soda, (email hidden), which was awesome! The house was very clean and there were plenty of blankets. The hosts were also readily available via text message to answer questions or help us find the hidden key when we got locked out! It was a great experience.

  • Karyn could not have provided us with better hospitality. The house was clean and comfortable and was a great home base for our trip. Highly recommend staying at this house!!

Hi! My family and I love to have fun and enjoy Austin. We have a great time eating a local restaurants, riding bikes around town, and all things aquatic. I'm a recent doctoral graduate from UT and my husband is an avid environmental geologist. We love to travel and are excited to share our home with fellow globetrotters. We have two small children who keep us busy, but we still enjoy the occasional raucous night out in Austin. We would love for you to enjoy our home, just let me know how we can accommodate your needs. We have lived in the Austin area for 10 years so we have plenty of recommendations to help your trip go from average to amazing.
