Overview

About the property

This 2,700SQ Foot Home Is Located Within 2Miles Of Major Shopping & Dining.

This Beautiful Home features Four (4) Bedrooms with a Movie Room/Game Room, Two Living Areas, and Two (2) Dining Areas, or the Formal Living/Dining Area can be used just for dining.

The Massive Family Room is perfect for gathering with Friends or Family during your Annual Gatherings. It Boasts a Romantic Corner Fireplace, to keep you cozy in the colder months, and 3 windows that look out onto the back yard, which has beautiful Pink Crepe Myrtle Trees, lining the back yard fence. They produce quite a beautiful floral show during the summer and fall months.

The Front Entrance boasts the perfect dining room, for gathering for a large dinner, with everyone at one table. This creates the perfect atmosphere to photograph everyone as you create memories to last a lifetime. The dining area can also be used as a gathering place to play board games or card games with the group that you are traveling with. I have supplied a tablecloth, to cover the wood table, for such occasions. Natural Wood is less forgiving of scratches and nicks, so to ensure that each guest is able to enjoy the beauty of the real wood, throughout the home, we ask that it be protected with tablecloths, placemats, and coasters, as needed.

The Master Suite Boasts a Large Bedroom, with a King Size Bed and a Full Bath and Shower. It is located at the back of the home, for extra added privacy.

The Second Bedroom has a Queen Size Bed.

The Third Bedroom has a Full Size Bed.

The Fourth Bedroom Has Two Twin Size Beds.

There is a Full Guest Bath upstairs and a Powder Bath downstairs.

There is a fully equipped Laundry room, with an LG Washer and Dryer, for those who are staying more than one day, and may need access to laundry facilities.

There is an eat-in kitchen, with room to gather, and cook and entertain together. There is also a patio set on the back patio, for those who enjoy a nice cup of coffee or tea, while the birds serenade them, in the morning. There is also a fire pit, for which we provide a complimentary block of wood, for each guest.

This property is less than two miles from the Round Rock Outlet Mall, Ikea, Ross, JC Penney, H.E.B. Grocery Store, TGIF and many other businesses and eateries.

While we feel that this is already a beautiful home, we are continuously in the improvement stages. I was in the Quality Assurance field for 20 years, so I believe in having the current quality match the current price. We have relaxed the rental rate until we are able to replace the carpet on the second floor, with wood or tile flooring. So be sure to take advantage of the reduced cost, by booking ahead, to lock in the lower rates.

The MBA is eager to accommodate your next vacation.

About Mattie B. Allen

Hello Travelers,

My name is Mattie Allen. I currently reside in Round Rock, Texas. I was born in a small town in Missouri, called Sikeston, where you can find Lambert's Cafe, "The Home of the Throwed [sic] Rolls."

I attended Sikeston Senior High School, where our school mascot was The Bulldog.

I have rented our home out for the past 4 years, on a yearly lease. The experience has been invaluable. I have decided that while I finish working on two Business Degrees, it would be more conducive to enter into the Vacation Rentals venture, so that I can focus on continuing my education, which is something that I put on hold while my husband was in the military and doing multiple tours to war zones.

I am looking forward to meeting many great people, while providing a service that will make you feel at home, while you are traveling.

Mattie B. Allen purchased this house in 1999

Why Mattie B. Allen chose Meadow Lake

When we purchased this property fifteen years ago, we were about the 5th house in the neighborhood. It has grown quite a bit over the years, but what I like most about the property, is that it is located in one of the most safe cities in America.

Round Rock, TX was recently ranked the #8 safest city in America, amongst cities with populations of 100,000 or more.

What makes this house unique

What I have always loved most about this property is the open floor plan. It is perfect for congregating as well as for relaxing.

It has amazing curb appeal, which begins as you enter the walkway, to find a french bistro set, conveniently situated next to a beautiful 3-arm lamp post, and an elegant purple flowering plant.

It is also flanked by 5 Oak trees, which provide an abundance of shade, during those hot Texas summer months, and if you visit in the spring, you will enjoy the harvest of the wonderfully delicious Japanese Loquat tree, which produces the some of the sweetest orange plums on earth, and a highly perfumed flowering bloom, just before the plums make their appearance. These are a very expensive fruit, which you are invited to harvest during your stay.

The Laminate Flooring throughout the First floor, keeps you in touch with nature and its ability to provide us with comfort and beauty.

The ability to view the Front Yard, as well as the Back Yard from the Family room is also a wonderful convenience, if you have children, or if you have guests dropping by unannounced.

You have found the perfect vacation rental at The MBA. Everyone who walks through the doors, has expressed a feeling of extreme peace. I am confident that you will experience it too.

Beautiful, Immaculate, Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six enjoyed a delightful stay. Everything we could have possibly thought of to make our Austin family wedding vacation home comfortable was provided. The location was close to everything, quiet neighborhood, and easy to navigate. It is a home lovingly cared for. We fell in love with Texas, especially its hospitality, and hope to come back soon.

Thank you MBA!

Owner's Response: Renata and her family were a JOY to host! They followed the House Rules, communicated with us upon arrival, and at departure. These are things that are very important to the homeowner, as we like to change the code and secure the home as quickly as our guests leaves. If you are a homeowner deciding who will make a good fit for your home, you will be thrilled to have this family as your guests. They took great care of The MBA house and have an Honorary Invitation to stay anytime they like. We appreciate guests who appreciate us, and we really appreciate you Renata and Family!

Family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay . The home had everything we needed plus more. We felt at home and comfortable in the surroundings. We visited Austin to celebrate our dads 70th birthday and it was a success. We had everything we needed for the gathering. And the home has a great outdoor gathering area . Thank you.

If I had to do it all over again, I would!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we have utilized this type of accommodations, and it couldn't have worked out any better. We were in town for a wedding and had 8 family members stay with us. The house was beautiful, and was able to handle all 10 people comfortably for sleeping, eating and dressing for the festivities that brought us all to the area. Everyone started each day visiting around the table in the kitchen, and we ended each day the same way. We came from 4 different states, so we had a lot of catching up to do, and that table was the perfect spot to do it. No one had any complaints about anything. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was equipped with every small appliance known to man, and the decor was top notch! Any questions prior to our visit were answered promptly (via email), so the only surprise upon our arrival was the outstanding quality and beauty of the house. We were on the move so much throughout our stay that we didn't get to utilize the beautiful patio and BBQ in the back yard. Yes, I can honestly say, without hesitation, that we would do it again, and would recommend it to anyone that is looking for an alternative to the stale hotel stay.

Very homely

  • 4 of 5

Well presented, clean home, as described.

Good communication from Mattie, on hand if required but not intrusive. You've got the balance right Mattie 😀

Owner's Response: I am very pleased that you enjoyed the accommodations. The word "homely" means something a bit different in America than it does in your country. I am pleased to know that in your country it means that you felt at home. I had the opportunity to meet your husband while you out around the town. I loved his accent. Thanks once again for allowing me to host your stay in Texas!
