Big thanks to Stan and Erica for letting us stay in this lovely house. The house is beautifully renovated and comfortable and the neighborhood is quiet and lush with huge trees. We spent as much time as possible - breakfast and dinner - enjoying the huge backyard with its fantastic terrace (perfect for grilling). The house is located a very short walk from the Colorado River/ Ladybird Lake and a lovely walking/biking trail full of wildflowers and wildlife.
We were three people (one couple plus one), two of which were attending a conference at the Austin Convention Center. The ACC was approx 30 min walking distance from the house, which was the perfect amount of activity for breaking up otherwise sitting-intensive days. I worked via remote connection from the house while the other two were at the conference, and I found the wifi to be stable enough for working without disruption. The kitchen is relatively well-equipped. The only comment I might make, albeit a tiny one, is that the owners' personal items and furnishings gave the slightest feeling of intruding on their privacy. But perhaps this is just a reaction based on the fact that all of the vacation rentals we have previously stayed at have been strictly vacation rentals, and not part-time homes. In any case, I find it refreshingly impressive that the owners are so open to sharing their home with strangers. Thanks for the trust!
Staying in this house was a bazillion times better than any hotel we could have stayed at!
Stan was great! Very flexible. Offered us the house one day early because they were leaving town. We couldn't take advantage but it was a nice gesture! Super convenient location of the house. Really cool, clean and comfortable space. Only thing you should know is the shower is on the smaller side and a bit temperamental. If the weather had been nicer, we would have taken more advantage of the backyard. My guests and I would stay here again!
We had a great stay at Stan's house! It was so nice to come back and relax on the back deck after running around all day. The neighborhood is terrific and close to basically everything we wanted to do. The house is also just around the corner from the Town Lake Hike and Bike Trail and it was super nice to be able to go for a walk or run along the water. Stan was super communicative and helpful! We would definitely stay here again.
My girlfriend and I stayed here while we attended Austin Psych Fest.This place was just what we needed. It is quiet and peaceful and a welcome escape from the festival life. It was our first time to Austin and this place proved to be a great location on the east side (which we found to be our favorite side of Austin). Everything that we wanted to go to proved to be just 10 minutes away or so. The large backyard, however, was definitely the highlight! Thanks so much for everything!
A beautifully kept home, with everything we needed for our brief stay in Austin. Easy in and out. I only wish we'd had more time to relax and enjoy the backyard! A great home base. Stan was accessible and responsive to any questions. Would definitely stay there again next time I'm in Austin!
What an absolutely perfect experience! We booked Stan's house for some out of town friends to stay at over my wedding weekend. The house is so stylish and comfortable, and the huge backyard was a highlight of everyone's trip. Stan was super responsive and coordinating the stay was a breeze.
This home was perfect for the 4 of us. We loved the backyard and it wasn't too far from all the bars. Thanks for having us over!
Great house and hosts! Spacious and nicely appointed.
Great house, great host! I booked this house for my coworkers during SXSW and it was great! They said it was even nicer than the pictures. Stan was super accommodating and very friendly! Thank you!
Stan was a great guest, and we would love to have Stan back. Thank you.
Stan and his companion were excellent guests.
Gio had a chance to chat with Stan and had a nice conversation.
The cottage was left spotless and we would live to host him again.
