A perfect place to stay

September 8, 2014

We arrived in the September heat of Austin... but when we opened the door of the condo, a refreshing cool welcomed us. The place was perfectly cleaned... we felt right at home instantly. The kitchen was well equipped and the furnishings very comfortable.

Austin weekend

May 9, 2014

We stayed here and loved it. The house was clean and quite. Has a cool little patio and lots of trees. All the houses in that area are all very unique and cool! Peggy is very nice and easy to work with. When we come to Austin again I will contact her to stay here again.

Thanks Blake and Shea.

Cozy Stay in the Heart of Austin

March 20, 2014

I experienced a wonderful one month stay here and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for the cabin/cottage feel in what is in my opinion the best part of Austin. Close to soco and downtown, you can walk or bike with ease or kick back in the awesome patio on your downtime. Amenities are by no means five star but the beds and couch are comfy the kitchen useful, and there is even a washer and dryer which came in handy for me. Owners Peggy and her husband are salt of the earth, responsive, and respectful of property. I wouldn't hesitate to rent again.

 Suzanna Hoff

Owner's reply:

Tom left the rental in great condition! He was a very nice and friendly guy and I would luv to rent to him again.
