Lisa Van Allen purchased this House in 2015
Why Lisa Van Allen chose North Austin
Great access to Austin and surrounding areas and incredible relaxing heated pool/spa patio...hang out in the loft and play pool where you can also sleep extra people...multi- game arcade, ping pong, shuffleboard, darts, 65 inch 4k TV with cable etc etc...sand volleyball down the street...you will love this house!
What makes this House unique
One of very few vacation rentals in Austin with a private heated pool and spa. Even in Austin you'll want a heated pool in the fall and spring. The garage is converted to a game room for extra fun...ping pong, shuffleboard, darts etc. We've got Sonos speakers, 4k TV, a 5,000 game arcade, a Ninja blender, and all the extra touches. Very classy.

Great spot for a retreat!
Every year, my wife and I try to do a couple's retreat where we get away from normal life to reflect on the past year and plan for the upcoming year. This year, we settled on this place and it was perfect for what we needed. The big lush living room couches made for comfy lounging and talking, and the neighborhood offers relaxing walks and a nearby park. We'd definitely come here again.
Amazing home and helpful and kind host!
The property is spacious and beautiful with a huge backyard, pool, and hot tub! The house was very clean and well kept and truly felt like a home away from home for the night! The host was helpful and answered all of our questions in a prompt and kind manor. Definitely interested in returning again soon!
Such a great, family-friendly place!
Our family loved staying at this guesthouse. We had no issues with any neighbors, and everything was well-stocked — beds are comfy, and everything was easy to find and understand. Owners are very nice and communicate quickly; all in all it was a delightful stay. Would love to stay here again!
Easy to work with owner. Had no worries or concerns. The property was perfect for our weekend in Austin.
Nice relaxing space
We had a great night's stay at his property. The house is nice and open with all you need for relaxing and having fun. Even though it was literally freezing outside, the hot tub was perfect for an evening soak under the stars. We look forward to another excuse to retreat in Austin at this property!
Neat house, but very uptight neighborhood
The house is nice, but they dont mention there is a sherrif as a neighbor. This neighboorhood is EXTREMELY uptight, there is a camera that faces the pool so it was a very uncomfortable feeling, and if you own a loud vehicle, do not stay here because you will get complained on. In all, i wouldnt recommend if you plan on having a friend gathering or your music on even to its minimum without getting a complaint. I do recommend it if you are as loud as a cricket.
This was an unfortunate booking. Neighbors could hear this group four houses away despite the 8 foot wall we have around the pool area. The Sheriff isn't a direct neighbor but was called by neighbors because of the extreme noise and the car parked in the yard. After we showed up, Thalia's group was quiet and respectful the rest of the weekend and we didn't receive any further complaints. If a group can't help being loud this isn't the house for you...please look elsewhere for your sake and ours. Also, there is no camera on the property.
The house is just steps away from one of Austin's best parks with an old settlers log cabin area that is retained to walk around and many miles of hiking and biking trails and great playgrounds. We are situated right on the major highways for hopping downtown or out to the hill country or go north to Round Rock for Outlet Mall shopping or to the Domain just south for shopping and dining and entertainment. We are happy to give you ideas and pointers if you need them.
