We were very mixed on our stay. The duplex is great with an open floor plan and plenty of space. Most everything was updated which was very nice but then there were things like the TV remote was duct taped together to work and there were no hand towels in the bathrooms. Gary was out of town when we arrived and his cleaners did a poor job unfortunately on restocking the place. We didn’t have any paper towels and dish soap and when we asked Gary where they were he said they must not have restocked and if we picked some up he would Venmo us reimbursement since he was out of town. We thought that was nice of him. But when we tried to use the outdoor grill a few days later after we think he returned back in town he responded the same way for us to go exchange it somewhere and he would reimburse us. Honestly we didn’t think we should be asked to do that ourselves and it would have been very inconvenient with our schedule of running back and forth to our daughters swim meet we were attending so we just didn’t use it. We also woke up the morning after we arrived to find a horrible smell in the garage to find the big garbage can overfilled full of bags of the previous renters garbage. When we alerted Gary of this we found out there wasn’t another pick up until after our 5 day stay so we had to place the can outside the garage by the door and walk past it every day. A lot of the issues we had were with the housekeeping and as we ourselves have a rental property we know that can outside of the owners control sometimes but it just seemed to keep piling on for us. Overall I have to stay our stay was good as far as the property, decor, location(short drive to lady bird lake) and Gary’s quick responses but with some of the other things we entered we probably wouldn’t choose to stay here again. Also as the previous reviewers have said- this is Gary’s home- there are a lot of personal items he keeps there. We just didn’t think it appropriate some of them we came across.

This home is located extremely close to town. It feels like 15 minutes to get anywhere. The home is beautiful and the owner was responsive and helpful. You can't go wrong with this place. Highly recommended.

Host was extremely helpful. Two members of our party arrived a little early and he was kind enough to allow us to drop our bags off so that we could go explore without lugging around everything. House itself was well maintained and nestled away in a wonderful little neighborhood that was close enough that you could walk, ride bikes/scooters or hop in a quick/cheap uber to get everywhere. Made friends with the neighbor and his friendly pup. All around it was the perfect spot for my small group of guys visiting Austin.

Everything was as described. Even had a 12pack of shiner for us. Easy commute to Rainey and dirty 6th. Master bed was one of the most comfy beds I've ever been in. Central HVAC works great. Tv and entertainment system nice!

The property on the outside is very nice and the neighborhood is beautiful -- Close enough to downtown that its convenient but far enough that its quiet. Access through the garage with a pin code was convenient and the accessible washer/dryer was greatly appreciated. The backyard was clean and is equipped with a small grill which was so cute. Gary, the owner, is a great host 10/10. The house description is where it becomes less than expected – the listing states 4 bedrooms which includes an office that can convert to a room. Future renters be aware that the 4th bedroom referenced is not a closed in office but an open space on the 2nd floor above the living room, visible right as you walk up the stairs. And “converted into a bedroom” meant there was an air mattress on the floor. The first night we stayed there, a guest literally slept on the floor as the air mattress was so badly damaged that laying on it for more than 20 mins, completely deflated it to the floor and he did not want to wake the house by turning on the air mattress to inflate every 20 mins. The fridge is subpar, barely keeping even mini water bottles cold. This was disappointing as we had cooked a meal our first night and overnight it had gone bad before we realized that the fridge compartment does not get cold. We had to turn the FREEZER section to the absolute coldest setting (there is an air flow control between the freezer and the refrigerator compartment) just to get the refrigerator to slightly chill our beverages. Obviously not ideal but we improvised. More on the listing, it is a 2.5-bathroom house not a 3 as listed. Additionally, this is a DUPLEX which is not stated anywhere. The unit rented is APT B which my guests and I had to determine upon pulling up to the location and reviewing the VRBO images online to take an educated guess, with the risk of pulling into the wrong unit which I’m assuming is someone’s private property. Also, it is listed as a 3000 sqft property but it’s really between 2,000 and 2,100 sqft. ALL THIS BEING SAID – IT IS AN OKAY house. NOT worth the price currently listed on VRBO. Because of the discrepancies in listing vs the reality of the house, it’s fair to say this house should be priced about a $100 less a night than what was paid. There were many more options ranging from $25 to $75 more a night for a fully glammed out, Austin style, working house that may be a better option for you future renters still researching your stay.
