About Anita Benavides
We have a couple of family homes we split our time in. This home, which is located in prestigious Westlake Hills, is the home base for our 2 youngest girls who attend high school and middle school in this neighborhood. A native Texan, I'm originally from San Antonio, but I've called Austin home ever since I came here to attend the University of Texas. My background is in running non-profit organizations, although I'm currently in my second, third and fourth careers - fashion, interior design, and renting out my house. I love to travel too and I always find ideas when I'm traveling on how to make my home more comfortable for you. I love Austin and all it has to offer and I'm sure you will, too!
Anita Benavides purchased this House in 2013
Why Anita Benavides chose High Oaks
I'm very happy in my home and I look forward to sharing it with you. It is located in one of the best neighborhoods in Austin. It's so close to downtown, yet you feel the serenity of the natural environment that our neighborhood strives to protect. The house itself is roomy and easy to host a big group. You'll find everything you need and if you don't, I'm just a phone call or text away.

Nice Suburban Home
This home is spacious with large rooms, comfortable common areas and a great kitchen. It was clean and well appointed and located in a beautiful hilly suburb of Austin, but not too far of a drive from the action. It has large decks outside with nice views and hang out spots. It looked good in the photos and was even better in person. The Honor Bar was a nice touch -- a fridge stocked with drinks for a fair contribution. Host Anita was very responsive and helpful. The only possible negative was her insistence that no guests, even during the daytime, be allowed in the house without letting her know and possibly paying extra. We never had any come over, but I thought this was unnecessarily rigid and not typical for houses we've rented in the past.
Wonderful house for couples getaway!
Upscale house in secluded area, close to lake and downtown. Plenty of room and large patio with beautiful views throughout house. We had four couples on our group and we all loved the house and had a great time!
Great home, great weekend and great view
Anita was extremely responsive and very helpful from beginning to end. The town of Westlake is beautiful and serene, but is much hillier and further out than anticipated. Make sure you call for an Uber at least 10-15 minutes before you need to leave. The check in and check out process was seamless. The home is stunning and very well maintained. There was plenty of space for 13 girls and sound didn't carry, so others who went to sleep early were never disturbed. The beds were super comfortable and the atmosphere cozy and homely. The main critique is that we were not informed that the owners have pets. Though the pets were not there, a few of the girls had allergic reactions and had to take medication. Aside from that, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this home for large groups!
18 Person Group
Overall good experience, especially for large groups where the owner added blow up mattresses to accommodate. Location is about 30 minutes from downtown, so not an easy Uber but not difficult to get picked up.
Great Westlake Retreat
We thoroughly enjoyed the house. Three families stayed for a long weekend, and the house was perfect for all ages. We loved the treehouse feeling and all the living spaces inside and out. Felt right at home.
I’m so happy you enjoyed your time at my home. It was a pleasure to host your group.
