    Jan was great to work with. My friends and I really enjoyed the stay. Jan provided a handful of really great restaurant suggestions. The house was as-advertised, and just as beautiful is it is in the pictures. Overall, an excellent experience, and in a really walkable part of town.

    We rented this property for a group 50th birthday celebration. The home is better than advertised. Great setup with the kitchen and sleeping arrangements were both plentiful and extremely comfortable. The 4 bathrooms were great! The home layout provides for plenty of space and privacy. Everything you need is supplied. Location off of 6th street is incredible. Great and easy access to all the eating and entertainment options - as well as a short walk/easy access to Zilker Park if you are in town for ACL. We loved the location - it is very centrally located to everything Austin has to offer. Finally, Jan is an incredibly helpful and active owner. We had a surprise cold snap come through on Thursday night, and she had already arranged for people to setup and run the furnace for us for the heat to kick on Friday morning . Jan gave us great recommendations for eating as well - and was so friendly and hospitable during our entire stay, it just made it so much easier for us to enjoy things. Thank you so much for all of your help and kindness during our stay. Would recommend this property and the wonderful owner without reservation - it is a phenomenal property with great room, great comfort and a super accessible location.

The house is beautiful and looks just like the pictures on HomeAway. The neighborhood is very walkable. There are lots of stores, restaurants, and grocery stores near by. We did not rent a car. You could easily order a one to take you where you wanted to go. The homeowner was very accommodating and easy to get ahold of when we had questions. We would definitely stay there again.

Everyone had their own bed, 4 lovely bathrooms made getting ready to go out a breeze and the areas for us to just hang were all so comfortable. Extra nice was that coffee was provided, linens and towels top quality, and the host was very responsive to any minor questions, even letting us check in early.

    I rented this home for a group of 7 women, and we couldn't have asked for a better place to congregate! The location is perfect for walking around downtown to boutiques, high-end chain stores, Whole Foods, restaurants and more. It is located in a quaint, safe neighborhood setting, yet one block from shopping. The home has been beautifully renovated and decorated - high ceilings, comfy furniture, lots of seating in the living area, dining room and kitchen, plenty of beds and bathrooms for all. It's very cozy, yet has plenty of space. It is immaculately kept, with high-end hotel-quality soaps/shampoo, sheets, towels and paper products. Also, Jan (property manager) is extremely responsive and accommodating. Every part of this rental experience was perfect! I cannot think of a way to improve upon it. The bar has been set very high for my future rentals! I'm already trying to find a reason to go back to Austin to stay in this house!

    Loved this beautiful house for my girls weekend in Austin. It is very well appointed and nice; an older house that has clearly been taken care of with everything updated. The seating is comfortable, and everything is well stocked. In particular, the beds are unbelievably comfy; we did not want to leave! And I liked the mix of bed sizes for a group of girls. Most houses have primarily queen beds which are less comfortable to share. Here you get a king or your own bed in a twin... worked perfectly for us. The back patio is also pretty cool, with a little fire place thing. Lots of seating. There was an issue with the plumbing downstairs, but Jan was super responsive and apologetic, and there are so many nice bathrooms in this house that it didn’t really impact our group. I will say one thing that is out of the owner’s control was the construction all around the block. They start up at like 7am on Saturday and make a fair amount of noise, but it looks like most of the structures are close to being complete so hopefully that won’t be an issue for much longer. House is located close to everything. It was a fun area and is a great launching point to walk around. Literally around the corner from the OG Whole Foods. I will be back for sure!

    Even more beautiful in person!

The living room had very comfortable furniture and the bathrooms were clean and spacious (for the size of the house). The house was not small, but the perfect size for a gathering. This renovated old home was very warm and inviting. I wanted to move right in! Shampoo, conditioner, soaps, and hair dryer were also available at this house.

    We had a fantastic time at this wonderful house. The rooms had the perfect amount of beds and configurations for our two families (two master bedrooms with king beds, and two rooms with a total of 5 twin beds). The downstairs master had to share a bathroom, but that wasn't a big deal. The beds were really comfortable, everything was clean and in good working order, and the decor was stellar! There wasn't a frying pan for morning omelettes, but one quick trip to Whole Foods (which is in walking distance) solved that. I would stay again in a heartbeat!

    I fell in love with Jan's home at the very first picture I saw of it. I knew immediately that this was the ideal house for me and 7 other friends from High School to stay. And happily I was correct. The house played a starring role in a pretty amazing weekend celebrating us all turning 50. On the first night we had a vegetarian cooking lesson/demo (Jan can give you the name). 8 of us easily gathered around the island the chefs were so pleased to be working in such a nice kitchen and had all of the tools they needed to create some pretty amazing dishes. After the meal we moved out to the back porch and gathered around the fire pit and talked and laughed for hours. The beds were super comfy and everyone loved their rooms. We spent a lot of time exploring Austin on foot so was great to come back to Jan's home and flop on the couch and discuss where we would be off to next. Sometimes we decided to just stay put as we wanted to maximize our enjoyment of the house. We were 8 strong and opinionated women and to a person everyone LOVED it. Thank you Jan!! Oh and side note: Jan was super responsive to every question and was a pleasure to work with through the entirety of the process. Now I want to come back with my family. Highly recommend this home and Austin!

    Our group of 8 college friends thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 617 Blanco! The house is beautifully decorated and full of charm. We are coming home full of decorating ideas for our own homes (succulent plants, interior long drapes, a pecan tree out front!). We had plenty of space and the beds were very comfortable. We loved the outdoor fireplace and patio--especially since the weather was warm and sunny in the middle of January! We loved the location, which was convenient to great restaurants (Clark's Oyster Bar), interesting shops, and not far from the running path on the river. Jan was more than accommodating to all of our requests throughout our stay! She was easily accessible and very prompt when we needed anything or had questions about the house. I would definitely recommend this property to friends. Thank you Jan for a wonderful stay!

    We recently rented this property after a VRBO search for Austin downtown homes. Our family was attending a memorial service for our Mother that weekend. We immediately knew this property met all our needs. It is within walking distance of Whole Foods, Sweetish Bakery, ZTejas and numerous other attractions in the area. The property is well maintained and beautifully decorated. It had all the comforts of home and served as a retreat for our family during a stressful weekend stay. The owner, Jan Currier was very accommodating and helpful. We recommend this property highly and would not hesitate to rent it again.

    We rented this lovely home for a college reunion. There were 9 of us and everyone raved about the place. It's beautifully renovated and decorated. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were gorgeous. We had everything we needed! Also several restaurants were within a block or two which was a plus. Jan was easy to contact and great to work with too. We would love to come back and stay here again!

    Me and four of my old college buddies decided to rent the Currier's property on 617 Blanco. This was primarily a trip to play golf at Austin area courses and see our Longhorns vs. Iowa State University on October 15th, 2016. We are a tough group to please since we value the creature comforts of our own homesin Rye Brook, NY, Dallas, TX and Orlando, FL. I had responsibility for booking the property ... here are the comments from my crew of 45-50 year old guys ... "Great House, Very Comfortable Beds, Furnished Nicely". Jan had great customer service and attended to our every need. We would recommend this property to others.

    Jan has done a beautiful job putting together this vacation home. Lovely decor, sumptuous bedding, many little comfortable and convenient details. Covered patio in back with propane fire table made for nice evenings outdoors. She is fantastically accommodating and will go out of her way to make sure you have what you need and your stay is enjoyable. Great recommendations for food, activities and navigating the neighborhood and Austin.

    This home is absolutely incredible in every way! We were a group of 7 woman and felt very fortunate to have found this rental property. It is highly upgraded, impeccable in its decor and cleanliness and beautifully furnished with attention to detail in every room. The kitchen is fully equipped and has a great assortment of items for entertaining and a terrific large island for gathering and socializing. The large screen TVs in the living room and bedrooms offer full service cable that can accommodate anyone's viewing needs. The bedrooms are exceptional with luxury bedding and linens that are so comfortable you may never want to get out of bed in the morning. Each lovely bathroom has an ample supply of luxury towels, quality hairdryers and toiletries. The patio is a perfect spot to sit and relax, day or night. The specialty lighting in the patio at night is a treat. The location is ideal and in walking distance to so many things that Austin has to offer. I have rented vacation homes all across the country and I can honestly say that this home is truly THE BEST rental I have ever stayed in. It is deserving of more than 5 stars! Jan, the owner, is amazing! She is very prompt with every reply and so accommodating; she’s a pleasure to work with from start to finish. If one of Jan’s homes could be available in every city I vacationed in, I’d be thrilled - because this Austin home exceeded every expectation for our group! Thank you, Jan!

    A great place to stay for families or large groups.

    My colleagues and I stayed here for a film festival and the house was great. First off, the house itself has plenty of room and looks great. It's clear the owners have put a lot of work into it. The location is ideal for those looking to go out in downtown Austin. It's just a few blocks to West 6th St. and Whole Foods, but on a quiet street where you can avoid the crowds. I can highly recommend this house to any groups or families.

    Recently hosted 10 friends in Austin. Great overall experience/interaction with the owner, from initiating the rental to flexibility on check-out time. The house itself had all the right things: stylishly decorated, outdoor space, large open kitchen, etc. Everyone complimented it!

    Wow! Upon walking into this home you could really tell the owners have paid great detail to making this home top notch! Luxurious bedding throughout with very comfortable beds in each room. Details like plenty of towels, keurig coffee, and lots of seating options for everyone made it so perfect for our extended family. The home was cozy yet had different spaces to spread out. The back deck was such a great bonus and we spent evenings out there having cocktails and telling stories. We also walked to Whole Foods and Graffiti Park, very convenient. Wonderful quaint neighborhood. We will definately come back to Austin and stay here!

    Stayed here with a group of 7 guys (ages 30-32) for a weekend and had a phenomenal time. Tastefully decorated and suitable for men, women of all ages and families alike, the house had plenty of beds for everyone to have their own, and the backyard covered patio with fire pit was fantastic during a light rainstorm. The house is in an amazing location in Clarksville with great access to Clark's Oyster Bar, Walton & Staple, and all that West 6th has to offer. The listing description was accurate, and I would say that everything was even better than the photos or details described. The owner (Jan) was quick to communicate and great to work with. I honestly could not have imagined a better place to stay and would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone. I want to personally thank Jan for helping to make this weekend possible and memorable.
