About Maria Komie

You may not look like the Attorney that Rocks, but you can live like him. Hi. I'm Maria and I'm married to David Komie. He and I, along with our children, lived in this house for over 15 years. We loved it. It has always been a great place to relax, enjoy friends and be creative. You are probably wondering why we moved out. Our daughter has attended the Austin Waldorf School for 7 years now and plans to be an AWS graduate. We all love the school but we began to hate the commute once it reached 50 plus minutes one way. It was time to move.

Maria Komie purchased this house in 1996

Why Maria Komie chose Austin

David and I were looking for a home with nature, privacy and space where we could spread our wings. It was the first property our relator showed us from a long list of places to see one day. The house needed a lot of work but the vibe of the place was so nice. We fell in love with it at once. We hopped back in the car to look at more properties. After driving 20 minutes away from Austin we pulled over and stopped the car; called our Realtor and told her we just want to go back to Blue Bluff. She met us there with some roadside tamales to celebrate. David and I walked the entire perimeter of the 9 plus acres that day. It felt like home, like no other place had.

What makes this house unique

East Austin Acres is a great place to unwind. It has a relaxed and easygoing feeling. I always loved getting home when I lived there. My favorite space in the house when we first bought it was the wide and airy hallway. This home was originally 2 army hospital buildings at Bergstrom Air-force base. The hallway was built extra wide to be able to accommodate 2 gurneys.

The land is super lovely with sweeping views from the decks. I have found evidence that Native American tribes, the Tonkawa or Comanche, lived on the land.

Best experience ever! Definitely recommend to anyone in Austin!

  • 5 of 5

Maria was an absolute joy to work with. She is so organized and responsive to all my questions. We had 13 ladies here for a weekend getaway and there's nothing but fantastic reviews all 13 of us can provide. It was the highlight of the trip. So organized, homey, so much space, grill, pool, hot tub, lovely porch, parking space, tree house, huge lawn, the greenery was so lovely and private. The sound system in the living room is great too. All beds very comfortable. This is the best place I could find that is somewhat close to downtown and it ended up working out perfectly - exceeding my expectations! It's a 15 min drive from airport and around 20-25 min drive to and from downtown which was totally fine! This wonderful property will blow you away- it's even better in person! Thanks Maria! - Steph

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for the weekend and had an excellent visit. Maria has clearly thought about all the needs of guests, so the stay was seamless. House is a great size, and the pool area and yards give you tons of room for activities. Also convenient location for getting to downtown. Great trip.

Convenience and privacy

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this home. The property was great. We went to the F1 race and it was very convenient for the race and all the restaurants and areas we wanted to visit. The only problem we had was the shower in the master bedroom. The water went everywhere no matter how we placed the curtains. The one thing missing was a corkscrew. The home was clean, property well maintained and I would not hesitate recommending this property to friends

Fabulous rental house

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house with plenty of space inside and out. The house is fully furnished with nearly all needs available. (only a corkscrew was wanted!) Maria is a helpful host and generous with check in/out times. I would recommend staying at this property if you want the quiet of the country with the convenience of town. A hammock would be a great addition with the huge trees in the yard. Great family get away. Don's BBQ 5 minutes away is delicious for all meal times. Tres Amigos is a bit further, but worth the drive. Walter E Long Lake/Park is within walking distance.

Owner's Response: Boy do I need back up corkscrews and bottle openers. Thanks for letting me know. Hammocks are a great suggestion. I will look at the trees and add a few before the summer.
