About the property

This A Great Home In A Very Safe Neighborhood; Easy Access To 360, 183, Loop 1

We're pretty new on the market and selective on who we rent our home to! However, check our reviews and call our guests and I think you'll be very very pleased. This is a perfect home for a family wanting to gather in Austin for a special event (wedding, graduation, reunion, football game, etc.) It's not a home to rent to host large bashes.....Sorry - i hope you understand and I just wanted to be up front with expectations. We're looking for responsible adults who will treat the home as if it were their home. We'll go the extra mile to make sure you're very satisfied! I've decided to rent our home because I spend a lot of time away and I only have my boys half the time.

4 bedroom 3 bathroom home in great Neighborhood! 2,600 sqft. Well Appointed - newly remodeled; All the amenities of home; stainless steel appliances, gas grill on tree top porch, washer-dryer; first & second story decks with nice patio furniture; ping pong table, 3 night minimum; full wifi; 50' LED High Definition Samsung TV, ATT Uverse sports package;

A little bit of Texan magic!

  • 5 of 5

Scott's house is wonderful. The local area is close to woodland so you see Deer on your drive to and from the house and the back of the house faces a wooded area too. The Deer are quite curious and come fairly close, it is quite magical! The house is set in a residential area that is quiet but very friendly, my children even played basketball on the street with the hoops that are outside. There is everything you could possible need in the property, it is comfortably furnished and was ample big enough for 7 of us to share!

We visited the F1 circuit which was only a half hour or so drive and also The Alamo which was very historic and is in a lovely town with a beautiful river walk, this was about a 90 minute drive. Scott was really helpful in helping us find an authentic Long Horn Cattle Ranch to visit, we all had such fun especially making s'mores over a campfire!

Local restaurants are not far at all, a short drive, along with supermarkets and other shopping outlets. We visited a Premium Shopping Mall only 20 or so miles away and found plenty of bargains!

The beds in the property all have memory foam mattresses which a super comfy, all bedding and towels provided are of good quality. Scott provided a kettle as us Brits like a good cuppa!

I would certainly recommend this property and Scott is more than accommodating. It felt like "home from home" but with a warmer outside temperature!!!

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Scott's house was the perfect home for our family to prep for my daughter's wedding. The house had everything we needed to prepare a pre-wedding meal, lots of space for everyone to spread out, and was well stocked with all the necessities. The downstairs area was very large and and one of my favorite areas. The "bride" to be had loads of room for her gown and all her necessities! Scott welcomed us with a bottle of wine and checked on us the next day to see if we had any issues. We would definitely consider staying here on a return trip.

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

The property presented itself as shown on the website. It was absolutely elegant and exceeded my expectations in reference to its cleanliness. My family of nine arrived for a college graduation at the University of Texas. All family members were impressed with the accommodations and had a comfortable stay. The location is covenient to all shopping and restaurants Austin has to offer. It took me 15 to 20 minutes to arrive at the Trinity parking garage next door to the Frank Erwin center from the property in heavy traffic which was impressive. The house is elegantly staged with contempory appeal. The kitchen and bathrooms exceeded expectations on cleanliness. The neighborhood is quiet, beautiful and safe. I felt so much at home and Scott is a wonderful host. He is very helpful and just a phone call away for any of your needs. This will be my "go to" property for all extended stays in Austin. Great property!

Our family had the occasion to celebrate our mother's 93rd birthday. We needed

a special place in which to do that. Luckily for us, we found it in this home

and it's owner. Everything you need is right here in this home. We will be

coming back next year, to celebrate mom's 94th!

Nice, classy and well-maintained property.

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for accommodations for our family in Austin with enough space for our relatives who came up to see us from San Antonio and Houston. As we were visiting from Switzerland, we were not very familiar with HomeAway in the USA. We checked out the different possibilities in Austin, and were very satisfied with Scott's home, his attentiveness and helpful hints. To put it shortly we really felt at home! The description of the house and all equipment was very accurate.

The house looked like it had been recently renovated - very tastefully I might add! The house is in excellent condition. The property is exceptionally well located in Austin. It is quite, yet you can reach the different shopping facilities and entertainment venues all within max. 10-20 minutes.

All in all, highly recommendable! We will definitely contact Scott on our next visit!

To Scott: Thanks for the attentive and generous hospitality.
