Castle in Austin

  • out of 5
The house was unreal. It was a glorious three story castle with two balconies that overlook downtown and UT. Definitely would recommend.

Beautiful house close to downtown

  • 5 out of 5
The house was beautiful - true to pictures - and slept 15 comfortably. Great location close to downtown. Walk to coffee shops/breakfast spots/CVS. Owner was extremely responsive throughout the whole process. Would love to stay again!

As good as advertised

  • 5 out of 5
We had a group of 12 for a long weekend to see a Longhorn football game, attend the ACL, and experience 6th street. The house was as good as advertised, and Austin was also as good as advertised. The best part was that all of these activities were within easy walking distance. We scheduled this trip almost 8 months out, and the property owner/manager was great to work with through the whole experience.

Great location and house.

  • 5 out of 5
This house was beautiful. Lots of characteristics of an older home with all the amenities of a new home. The view from the third bedroom balcony was fabulous. My sister got married in Austin so the family elected to rent a house to stay together and this worked great. The house is in a transitional neighborhood so there are some beautiful homes next to smaller ones but the location to downtown made it ideal. We had nine people stay and the house absolutely could fit many more. The only thing I would warn about is that the oven, though very high end, if it isn't turned on, takes 4 hours to warm up so really don't plan on cooking anything. As this is a rental house most people would not even dream of cooking and really it was a small thing. The beds were all very comfortable, excellent decor, and overall great experience. The bride and groom even commented they would rather stay at the house then at their hotel suite because it was so nice. Would absolutely stay here again and worked great for us.

Incredible Weekend

  • 5 out of 5
I was really worried that the house wouldn't be as great as the pictures, but it was actually even better. We came with 16 girls for my bachelorette party and we fit in perfectly, and could fit even more in - there were several couches, closets with air mattresses, and one of the rooms now has bunk beds. The house is built for this sort of situation - large common spaces, an awesome kitchen, the backyard, and the roof deck were all perfect for a social group. Though there were only 3 bathrooms, which was a worry initially, every bathroom is huge and allows people to be able to get ready while other people are showering - never an issue.

The fridge was broken during our weekend, but the manager was immediately aware of the situation and brought us ice and has been incredibly accommodating. Everything else went swimmingly!

Location-wise was definitely walkable although we typically took ubers which were super easy and very short rides.

None of us wanted to leave and wish we were still there! Thanks for a great weekend.

Great place, fit a part of 14 comfortably

  • 4 out of 5
I stayed at this place with a group of 14 for a bachelor party. The house came as advertised and was in great condition when we arrived. The back patio area was a big hit, and even with 14 people in the house we did not feel like we were on top of each other. It is a great location, with $8 Uber rides to 6th and rainey streets.

We did have some minor issues with the kitchen. The oven is an "always on or always off" style AGA oven, which we requested to be kept on but it was off. We also weren't able to turn it on ourselves because the wick for the pilot light was not there. The refrigerator and freezer also did not work very well and did not do its job of keeping things cold. These issues were an inconvenience but we worked our way around them.

The owner/manager was available at all times for any questions we had and was very helpful in reminding us what we needed to bring and what would be provided. All in all I would definitely recommend this place, especially if you want to be close to downtown.
