Please no smoking inside.

Marjorie was great to work with. My friends loved the house and your friend that lived upstairs was amazing help. the house was amazing. Thank You for letting us stay.
What an amazing house. The house is better than in the pictures and has everything you need for a family get away. The pool and spa are clean and a great size and you are only a short drive from the centre of Austin. Thanks!!
Will and team
Loved the accommodation, it was everything that we expected plus more. Would highly recommend it. Outstanding location.
Perfect home for our stay at ACL. The home was clean, very orderly, and the outdoor space we utilized to the point of any future home in any city will have these expectations. Marjorie went above and beyond for our late arrival even went grocery shopping so we had snacks and breakfast. Was within walking distance to the park and even a nice little store for our walk home for any food or drinks. We had a great time and this home made us feel like we were truly on vacation!
Marjorie was wonderful to work with! Her house was the perfect get away for our girls weekend. We loved laying by the pool and taking advantage of the plentiful outdoor space. Every request we had was met with ease and a great attitude. The tree house is a wonderful vacation spot for any group!
Marjorie was so great to work with. Very calm and flexible even during some extreme circumstances. Great communication.
The pool was wonderfully refreshing and the tub great to sit in. There was another renter who lives just above the space who was great to have on site for any questions.
We had a large group (11!), and Marjorie's house was perfect for us (8 of us were in the four beds, 3 on air mattresses). The pool is wonderful, the open layout is perfect for large groups, and the kitchen was well stocked with everything you needed (we did some BBQing while we were in there). Great weekend, hopefully we'll be back sometime!
Great weekend at this house! It came with everything we needed and owner was easy to work with and answered alllll my questions in a timely fashion. First airbnb rental for me and was a total success!
Music- and culture-loving traveler. Austin-based, but also live part-time with my partner on a 50' wooden sailboat in the Florida Keys and have cruised for years throughout the Caribbean. I'm a huge fan of world Carnivals, and have participated in St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Grenada, New Orleans, New York, London, Austin, and - especially - Trinidad (14 times). Can't get enough! I love Austin for many, many reasons - in particular its eclectic live music scene - and I'm delighted to share my humble abode with like-minded music fans. Welcome!
