Nice property but...
The host was nice and the space had nice finishes. The patio has some good/comfortable furniture and we enjoyed sitting out there after the sun went down in the evening.
I echo the last reviewer - the a/c simply cannot keep up with the Texas heat. The host turned the a/c on at 3:30pm and when we arrived about 6pm, it was still 80 degrees inside :( The temperature inside was in the high 70s most of the first night as we were falling asleep despite being set to 70. The host brought us an extra fan and had the a/c company come to check it the next day. Before we checked out I went upstairs to collect the kids gear and was sweating before we left despite the thermostat being set to 70.
Part of the reason we booked this place was so our kids could run around in the expansive yard. We made sure to bring some balls for the occasion. Unfortunately when we arrived the yard was overgrown and the grass was too high for our kids to run around safely in. The saving grace was the swing hung from a tree by the main house. Our son loved it. The driveway is huge so we were able to play there some as well.
We were at the property for six weeks pending the completion of our home construction. We had one issue not discussed below that we brought up to the owner and he responded quickly. The other issues mentioned below were not brought up but since I didn’t see them addressed in other reviews I wanted to note them. (I’m not sure what the owner could do about the 1st and 3rd issues, but heads-up on the 2nd would have been nice.). The property is a duplex and mostly private but the master bedroom appears to share a wall with a baby nursery on the other side of the duplex. 1.). Many nights the baby would cry for about 15 to 20 minutes at some point between 2 and 5 am. As a mom I understand how difficult that situation is but as a short term tenant paying a lot of money it feels very different. From my experience this is likely a temporary issue but very relevant to our stay. 2.). During our stay we noticed a smell gradually growing worse that we eventually (4 weeks in) discovered was due to a leak in the kitchen sink disposal drain. There was a Tupperware container under the sink to catch the leak whenever the disposal was used, so once we discovered the source, we knew to empty it each day to avoid the smell. 3.) The air conditioner seems to have trouble combating the Texas heat. When we left in the morning the temperature was set on 74 but when we returned about 8:00 pm it said 74 but felt like 80 in there. Overnight the temperature would match the setting but the evening hours were warm. 4.) Finally, the Smart TV has Netflix and other apps but I missed watching the nightly news. A set of rabbit ears would be great for those of us that don’t have a subscription to one of the apps that you need for CBS/NBC/ABC. There was a local news app but it was the same loop of news that would show for a couple of days.
Very quiet and relaxing. Furnished very well.
Upstairs ceilings are low. There is another rental unit attached but was quiet
Nice, calming, and relaxing place.
We enjoyed our time at this quaint barn. It was just what we needed. The host was very attentive and friendly. I definitely will return. Thanks for having us!
Thanks, Amy! We would love to see you again. And we are so glad you enjoyed the space.
Great Austin Family Get Away!
Great place to stay outside Austin! Easy to get into the city from and also enjoy the hill country. The apartment was beautiful and well stocked with everything we could need. Our young kids loved staying in the upstairs bedrooms. Owner is very friendly and accommodating. We had a wonderful Easter weekend!
A taste of the country but still close to the city
Wonderful host, well-appointed and nicely decorated apartment for a couple or family with kids or hobbits as upstairs has very low ceilings that require even 5’4” adults to crouch when walking around in the upstairs bedrooms. Note the host is onsite and guesthouse is actually two apartment units.
Loved seeing deer in the yard. Wish our schedule and weather temps would have allowed us to use the outdoor shower. I could have really enjoyed a shower under the stars.
