About Lynn and Jerry Johnson

We fell in love with this house at first sight! After years away from the great city of Austin, we are over the moon to BE BACK!! We are local builders/ designers/property investors, so we take our properties very seriously. Style, quality, uniqueness, and cleanliness is a must!

We are thrilled to share this beautiful home with travelers/visitors who come to Austin to experience what Austin is all about! We know to do that... LOCATION is so important! Less than 7 miles from the airport and minutes from Downtown, SoCo, Lake Austin, etc this Home is the best!

We take pride in helping our guests make the most of their trip to Austin... we are "hands on" and will do what we can to make sure that is a reality!!

Beautiful and very clean with a well-stocked kitchen that had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We loved sitting on the porch which sits up from the back of the property. You can easily forget that you are close to the city. We were able to have a lovely baby shower for my daughter with the cozy yard and grill to barbecue. The hosts were very accommodating- lending us tables to use. I highly recommend this property.

Wonderfully appointed home in the heart of Austin!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Lynn and Jerry's home. The place was large, well appointed with all the basics, and very clean. Our hosts kindly left a basket of snacks and treats upon our arrival and were there to assist with any questions or concerns. Since we are not drivers, the location was key. We had no trouble making the 30 minute walk from the house to downtown. We had three people with us but the home could have easily accommodated 6-8! We wouldn't hesitate to rent again.

The perfect place to stay in Austin!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long four day weekend celebrating my sister's bachelorette and birthday at this PERFECT house. It is in a perfect location - a nice leisurely walk from South Congress and all of the shops, restaurants, food trucks, and coffee places there. It's also a short ride from Rainey, downtown, campus, the stadium, all the places you want to be. It was super clean and has a full size fully stocked kitchen and we found everything we needed to make multiple several course meals - much appreciated! The three bedrooms had super comfy beds, plenty of towels, even toiletries. We also made use of the washer and dryer. The outside area is perhaps the best part - hanging lights, a fire pit with several chairs around it, and even a grill. I would love to come back and stay here again in the winter to make use of the fire pit. As a heads up, I would say sleeping on the regular "closed" couches is probably more comfortable than the pull out bed. I highly recommend this house!
