Erica's company TurnKey made the entire rental process easy and painless. They were always available 24/7 and were happy to help. Would rent with them again and I probably will!
I give an A+ + + to the house, the service and communication from Erica and her team, the location, and I could go on...Everyone should rent this place!
The reservation was canceled 12 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
This was a lovely 3 bedroom home:
1.) As advertised, it is near Lake Travis (about 2 miles away)
2.) the house was well kept, all the linens were clean, internet available, and relatively modern appliances
3.) Turnkey was professional, attentive, and, best of all, responsive. Unlike other renters we interacted with, they were able to confirm a reservation immediately (and not fish for other rentees.)
4.) Neighbors are friendly
The only things to note that were a surprise to us were:
1.) while it is definitely a 3 bdrm, each bdrm has only 1 bed. So while it can theoretically sleep 6, that'd better be 3 couples
2.) there is very little yard (and what exists backs into a golf course) and the houses to the left and right are quite close--that may not be obvious from the photos
3.) the second bathroom connects to one of the bedrooms, so it's slightly less private than you'd think
4.) it is, to be clear, not bordering Lake Travis--it's about 20-25 min walk or 5 minute drive
This is a lovely home with modern amenities. It is is close to Barton Springs (a ten minute walk to the "pay" side of the park) and around the corner some several good restaurants. Erica was easy to work with and quick to reply.
Loved our stay! Erica was easy to work with! We traveled with 2 children and felt extremely safe and comfortable the entire time. The outdoor shower was wonderful!
The place was exactly as described and was very relaxing to stay in. The kitchen was very nice and had all the cooking wear needed. The host was very welcoming and was able to be contacted day or night. We enjoyed our stay and will be back again!
Erica was quick to respond right from the start. She was helpful in answering any questions I had. The rental was in great shape and was just as described on the listing. We had a great stay and would consider Erica in the future.
House was great, bar one carpet in the master bedroom that could use a steam cleaning. Everything else was neat and clean.
Response from Erica:
Thanks for your feedback, Jackson! I will recommend a steam clean on the carpets right away. Thanks so much for pointing that out.

The host could not have been more accommodating and considerate. Everything went smoothly, from the check-in to a lovely late check-out. The house is a showplace, the pool is exquisite (saltwater as I recall), and the architecture is breathtaking.
It's the kind of place you can entertain in with style. You may want to tell your friends to leave their high heels at home, as the spiral staircase and rock floors can be a trifle difficult to navigate.
The neighborhood is among the nicest and ritziest in Austin. It's seriously a gorgeous house and I hope to stay here again.
