The house was great! Lots of space and nice amenities. It was nice being in a quiet neighborhood, yet just 10-12 minutes from downtown Austin. I would definitely stay here again.
The house was exactly as advertised and had everything you would need for a trip to Austin.
The property is exactly as advertised - it's as great and amazing as it is in all the photos! The pool, in particular, is a great amenity. It was super clean and has a nice view of the surrounding neighborhood. Perfect place to chill and hangout later in the day when it was cooler. Ben was super responsive leading up to our stay and his son, who checked us in, was great and made sure we got settled. All in all, great place to stay that is worth the price!
Ben was a great host and the house was clean and fully stocked with everything you could need. Nice neighborhood only a few minutes from Downtown and short ride to Lake Travis. Pool was clean and refreshing.
Had a fantastic time at this house with group of 8. Great location central to Lake Travis and downtown Austin. Everything in house worked as expected and pool and basketball court provided a lot of entertainment. Would definitely stay here again!
Loved the open space concept. Plenty of room for guests.
This location was perfect with all the amenities in the home. We enjoyed the pool, basketball court, game room and theater room to have group time and then our rooms were spread out enough to have privacy. The home was very clean and everyone was pleased with the home. Benjamin, was an awesome host. He greeted me at the home and gave a tour. Benjamin also helped me take bags out of my car, which he didnt have to do that. I was very appreciative and unexpected. I highly recommend the home and Benjamin's hospitality, A+!
Pairs of sisters stayed at Ben’s property. It was clean, spacious and just what we were looking for. We enjoyed the pool, movie room and the covered patio which was perfect for breakfast outdoors and sipping wine at night. We would recommend this property to anyone!
A beautiful home that my family enjoyed. The personal greeting at check-in an tour of the home was very much appreciated by the owner. We enjoyed the privacy of the pool and basketball court. We will definitely stay again.
This beautiful home was a great home base to explore Austin (maybe 15 min uber to downtown). Easy and quick check in with the owner Benjamin and we were good to go. Private backyard pool / hot tub provides a great place to relax, while the huge patio was perfect for outdoor eating and bbqing.
This property was awesome. The owner was so nice and responded very quickly if I had a question.
My family and I have stayed in Austin many times and this one stands out as one the best. The location (unlike some other places)was conveniently located near town but when you are at the home you feel as though you are up in the hills away from it all. High points..the pool, the gym and of course the "record player" Yes the gem of the home is the ability to play some old records and hear the sound that many of us grew up with and I loved the variety of music. Ben the homeowner was great and very responsive. This is a great place.Book it! and dont be afraid to challenge yourself and run the hills! thanks again Ben
This house house has so many amenities. My friends and I made sure utilize each and every one. From the pool and hot tub to the half basketball court and the movie theater room. It's classy, yet homey. Benjamin was such a nice and accommodating host. If anyone is thinking of renting this house, I suggest stop thinking and GO FOR IT!
Great house and great location. Very nice host.
The house was perfect, great location and lots of amenities to enjoy!
This is a really nice house in Austin. Outdoor space - pool, jacuzzi, basketball court, deck with grill. Indoor space - very spacious house with king suite on first floor along with theatre room, game room, and family room. On the 2nd floor there are 3 bedrooms with queen beds. Pro's: spacious, great outdoor space and good place for large group of people. Clean house, but needs a bit of TLC. House is located in a good neighborhood with several stores a few minute drive away. Cons: House is located outside of downtown Austin. It could take anywhere from 20-40 minutes to get downtown depending on traffic. I would recommend this space and look forward to heading back to Austin.
This is our 2nd time staying at this house. It continues to be our favourite. Location, amenities, and a great host makes this house our first choice when we are travelling as a group to Austin.
Ben was extremely pleasant and accommodating. The layout of the house is perfect for just hanging out and enjoying each other's company, though it does have a few areas that could use some TLC.
Beautiful property! Our group had a great time and the owner, Ben, was super helpful prior to and during our stay.
We visited Austin with our entire family for six days (7 adults). Everything we needed was there. The kitchen was well appointed, the coffee was great, and there were lots of places to escape to. The game room and movie theatre were awesome. Our son never wanted to leave the game room because of the great turntable and extensive record collection. It was perfect for our family with lots of space for everyone to spread out and do their own thing.
The house is amazing. The area is amazing. The host had everything set up and met us when we got there. There is literally nothing I didn't love about this stay.
We were four of us staying at this wonderful place. Amazing property and immaculately maintained. Swimming pool, hot tub, pool table, basket ball court, full-gym, and movie room were all great for us to enjoy during our week long stay. Randalls and HEB are few minutes drive from this house so stocking up groceries was a breeze. Access to Mopac highway was predictable 5 mins (or less) and 15 mins to either Domain or Downtown. Fantastic property, fantastic location and a great host ! Love to come back again !
Great location for a family. Good location to surrounding events. Owner is very accommodating. We have stayed in a number of vrbo rentals and this is the best.
The pictures don’t do this house justice! I’ve suffered from other rental properties that don’t live up to expectations, but I can honestly say everything in this house is even better than the ad. Ben was also the ultimate host and very responsive and accommodating. I would 100% recommend this house & look forward to renting again soon!
We had six guest in town for Austin City Limits Music Festival. We picked a winner of a home! The inside and outside were both amazing! We enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi immensely and even played a little basketball on the sport court. The house itself was fully equipped with many cool amenities (great gym, cool movie theater, pool room, loaded kitchen and plenty of flat screen TV's to watch college and pro football). All the bedrooms were spacious and well appointed. Ben and his son Justin are super friendly and accessible. Highly recommended for a long weekend or more!!!
Ben was very nice and the house was well stocked with cooking utensils and towels! Very fun, the pool was great, and the location was perfect in the middle of the lake and downtown.
We have 5 teenage boys so this property worked great for us as there was plenty of room to spread out and and the pool and basketball court kept them entertained during downtime on our trip. The location is great, very convenient to both the lakes and downtown and has lots of good dining and shopping options nearby. The snow-cone stand about a mile up the road was also a big hit with the boys. Would definitely consider this house again on our next trip to Austin!
Great rental for a large group. The house kept us entertained.
Wonderful, spacious home, that has been well looked after and is extremely comfortable. The pool and hot tub area, as well as basketball court were perfect for the sunny weather. Inside the pool room, cinema and living rooms were comfortable and big enough for the whole group to congregate. When one minor issue arose, Ben was quick to reach out and have it resolved within the hour. All in all i would highly recommend the house to anyone staying in the area.
This house was perfect for a girls weekend! It was all the space we needed and more. I couldn't have asked for anything better! Ben was flexible with our check in and check out times which really was vital to the success of our weekend. I would rent this house again in a heartbeat!
Had a great time at this home, perfect spot to hangout during the day poolside. Inside of the home is great large bedrooms, plenty of bathrooms. Close enough to downtown for the nightlife.
I went with some friends for a golf weekend. The house was great, with a ton of activities. First day we all played some basketball in the court in the backyard. Second day, we had a tournament on the pool table. This all happened while we were able to watch the NCAA tournament on the large TVs. Plenty of space to sleep. In addition, it was easy to get in and out of Austin as well as going to the local golf courses. All in, everyone I went with had a great time and so did I. Would recommend this place. Thanks Ben!
I will start with the positives. Ben the owner is a very nice man. The house is large and can accommodate 8 - 10 people comfortably. Nice views from the back deck and about 20 mins to everything. We rented and paid a lot of money based on 5 star reviews. I have no idea what the other renters are used to but this is not a 5 star property. The house desperately needs painting, heavy cleaning and new carpets. Outside furniture was broken or cushions stained. We had ants and flies in the house and had to spray to get rid of them. Kitchen cabinets are dirty inside as well as holes in several walls and doors. We contacted Ben as soon as we got there to inquire whether or not anyone had cleaned since there were rugs with popcorn everywhere as well as lots of signs of previous renters. He said he had changed cleaning services and apparently this crew wasn't as good as the others. He rectified that problem for us. But, the condition of the house definitely isn't because of a poor cleaning crew. Lots of work needs to be done to this house to bring it up to 5 star. Also, I reached out to HomeAway and still haven't had a reply to my complaint and I am now home. My question is why do they make any money on this transaction since the property was not as advertised, they offered neither help nor partial refund, and clearly don't review these properties. I would NEVER rent through them again. Sally M, Florida
Ben was kind enough to let us stay at his home while our group was in town for a wedding. If you are staying with a group, this is the way to go. It isn't a brand new house but it is very well kept. It is nice having a house that isn't terribly far from the entertainment areas of Austin but still had a beautiful view of Hill Country. Ben assured us that we were able to reach him if we had any issues which was nice. The space that each of us were able to enjoy privately was great. Unfortunately for us it rained the entire time we were in Texas so we weren't able to utilize all the amenities like the pool and basketball court but that didn't stop us from using the spacious hot tub. Be sure to ask how to use the hot tub (spa) because we didn't and we had some issues at first but we were able to figure it out. The kitchen was great for our group of six to be able to cook and socialize together. Overall, our trip was great (except for the rain but even the rain didn't ruin our stay in the NW Hills) and I would stay at this house again in a heartbeat. Thanks again Ben!
Some friends and I stayed recently for a weekend getaway. The property is perfect for this as it has its own secluded backyard area and many amenities to keep you entertained. The view off the back balcony is stunning, and we enjoyed cooking and relaxing out there. I will note that this being a rental property had some wear and tear, and some of the appliances were not working properly. That being said, Ben was very friendly and accommodating and worked with us on the issues. I would recommend this place to a friend.
You will instantly feel at home at Ben's beautiful estate. I say estate, because the place is massive. The pictures do not do it justice. From the beautiful pool, outdoor grill, basketball court, movie theater, game room, whole house sound system and generally high quality of everything, I found nothing me and my guests did not love. If you are staying in Austin, stay here. Seriously.
We had a lovely experience staying at Ben's house in Austin. As a group of women, we were looking to be close enough to the city for dinner, but really looking for a space to relax and catch up. This house was perfect. We were a short ride from the city (we used FARE as our taxi service), and the house had plenty of space for relaxing and catching up. The pool is great, the basketball court was a very fun addition! The house is fully stocked with everything you will need. We cooked breakfast each day and the kitchen was easy to use with all the necessary utensils. We also went out on Lake Travis on Saturday and again, the location of the house is perfect for wanting the best of both worlds. Ben was wonderful to interact with, very friendly and responsive. I highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a comfortable stay while in Austin! Thank you, Ben!
We had 8 people (4 couples) on a relaxing weekend getaway. This home had tons of space so we could be together as a group, or do our own thing (pool, basketball, game room, theater, patio, etc. Ben was very helpful in showing us around and we had everything we needed to cook together as a group, play music, mix drinks, or just lounge. I would highly recommend this property to anyone who needs space for a large group who really wants to relax and unwind.---Greg Iker
Ben's house was the perfect place to house our family and friends for my husband's 40th birthday weekend. Just a short drive to downtown, the house is tucked into the north west hills with gorgeous views and a life fit for a king with a beautiful pool and hot tub overlooking green space. My husband and his friends could be found on the basketball court at all times! It was so easy to cook and entertain because the kitchen had every thing you could ever need to prepare and serve food. The kids loved running around the house because it's so spacious. Our daughter keeps asking us when we're going back to our Austin house. It was a perfect weekend in an amazing house. Thanks Ben!
My family absolutely loved staying at this residence during the holidays! The owner was very accommodating....the property was very clean and well-maintained.
