      Gathering of Friends

      I have 3 friends from college that I congregate with every year or so at various US destinations, and this year, we stayed here in Austin. What a find! The place looks beautiful in the pictures - and that's EXACTLY what the place looks like in person. It was immaculate. The beds were comfortable. We didn't cook, but the kitchen was awesome and had any amenity you might want if you were preparing in eating meals there. The real gem of this place is the open living area...wonderful natural light, plenty of seating, and open-able (if that's a word) to the awesome deck. It was a GREAT place to catch our breath between activities and hang out in the evening before or after dinner. The location as great, too - right across the street from a path you could easily use to walk downtown, and in neighborhood you could sort of meander through to get to other restaurants, shops, etc. Lisa was amazing: always quick to respond and managed to find ways to accommodate our every wish, and she really went out of her way to make things easier on us as we were coming and going from 4 different locations at different times. Without question, I could stay here again if I find myself in Austin with a need to have room to spread out.

      5/5 Excellent

        Galentine's Getaway

        We were a group of ladies getting together for a long weekend. Lisa was so pleasant and enthusiastic about the area! She gave us all kinds of great recommendations for things to do. As for the house, we were fascinated with the decor and impressed with all the amenities, not to mention the FABULOUS location overlooking Zilker Park, literally across the street. It looks even better in person than in the pictures. We were very comfortable and Lisa goes above and beyond to provide for a top notch experience! We would do it again in a heartbeat!

        5/5 Excellent

          Amazing space & location

          Lisa was so helpful and accommodating during our stay. We had a girls weekend with 6 in total and the space was perfect. We really enjoyed the ambiance, the balcony and location. The park is right across the street with a beautiful walking path along the water and Downtown is a short Uber ride away. Couldn’t be happier with our choice! The house was very clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. I would definitely stay here again!

          5/5 Excellent

            Very nice place

            Lisa was great and responsive. Close enough to town/dining. Barton Springs was fun, good crowd. Nice house and great deck. There's some construction going on right in front of the house (only reason I gave location 4 instead of 5) but wasn't bothersome for us, we stayed over a weekend so I'm not sure if it would be more bothersome during the week. (Not the property or property owners fault...just reality.)

            5/5 Excellent

              Beautiful property

              For a ladies (4 of us) weekend in Austin, this property was spectacular. It had everything we needed to enjoy our stay in Austin. So close to everything, yet in a quiet neighborhood with a beautiful view of Zilker Park.
