“SOOOOOO many plusses... AND a piano!!! We loved this home!!!”
Reviewed 13 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Right from the security gate for parking and the convenient digital entrance for the front door, which allowed us entry without needing to set up a check-in meeting with Paola & Aditya,we were immediately pleased with this property. The pecan trees in the front yard and the wrought iron bench and 2 cushioned patio chairs gave us a very relaxed and
lush green first impression. And one step inside the big front entrance made us feel right-at-home!!!
All of the main rooms are large and airy...king-sized beds in both bedrooms. Lots of closet space ,chest of drawers,lovely linens,big TVs in BOTH bedrooms...now that's a RARE feature in a vaca-home.
The living room has such a large L-shaped sofa,it could easily sleep another guest. The TV is huge and the decorative touches are spot-on. The dining room,with a large table that seats six, and a fireplace,makes this home so much more than just another rental. And the kitchen is very well appointed...so many handy utensils ,cookware and small appliances,spices,condiments and the best-stocked fridge we've ever been treated to on our arrival.
And as an extra treat for this casual piano-playin' senior, we were pleased to see that Paola and Aditya kindly left a beautiful electric keyboard in the study. I made it a point to play a little each day and it will always stick in my mind as "The Piano House" in Austin,the music city of Texas.
Thank you,Paola,for sharing your love of music with your guests. It's a very generous thing to do and it just adds to our intention to spread the word to family & friends and increases our desire to return to this home the next time we return to Texas.
LOVED the backyard and the proximity to the Colorado River parks system,the stretch of unique shops and walkability along the SouthCongress Shopping district,and the campus area and shops in the Texas University area...and of course,the music vibes and history along famous Sixth Street.
We even found the small bit of ThreadGills Restaurant that remains after the fire years ago and stood in the spot where Janis Joplin started her musical adventure. It was a chilling moment to us to feel the history of that legend after growing up with her music all through our younger years. That was a highlight !!!
Now you know why we said "SOOOOOOOOO many plusses" in the Review Title. Only minus was that we only stayed for 3 nights...next time,much longer!!! This vacation home is a VERY good VALUE and 2 couples or a small family would be very happy renting it we're sure!!!

“Perfect Home Away from Home”

Town Lake Home was perfectly situated: walking distance to East Austin hotspots and Rainey Street, while also tucked away in a quiet residential neighborhood. Paola communicated frequently prior to our arrival, and it was a breath of fresh air walking into the house. The entire property is fully stocked, and would meet the needs of any traveler- whatever your interests: cooking, reading, music, or resting. This was a great find, and we hope to book again on our next trip to ATX.

“Cozy, clean and welcoming!”
Reviewed 27 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

This home was perfect for our stay in Austin. It was so close to downtown and the airport. The gated parking was great. We were able to entertain some family in the evenings. The beds and furniture are very comfortable. It is just the perfect amount of room for 3 or 4 people. We loved drinking wine in the evenings in the front and back yard. It was also nice that the owners provided some snacks and beer upon arrival. We had a great stay and if we return to Austin we'll be renting this property again for sure!

Liked best: King size beds, the living room and wifi.
Liked least: The neighborhood was quiet, but it is getting fixed up. There was some construction going on in the area, but it wasn't loud. I can't wait to see the improvements.
