Wonderful Austin Casita!
We had a fabulous week-long stay at this great little Casita in the heart of the hippest Austin neighborhood - walking distance from the best ‘food-truck park’ and art galleries and we loved just walking all around the neighborhood scouting for highly-modern recently remodeled homes - an architectural feast! The casita is perfect and cozy - artfully furnished, spacious kitchen and comfortable living-room space - we are a family of 4 and it was just what we needed! We plan to go back there any time we’re lucky enough to visit Austin again!

April 2016 Stay
Love, Love, Loved it!!! It was an amazing experience and a great way to experience Austin for the first time. Close to all the shops//food trucks//restaurants//and bars on South Congress. Only 15 minutes from the bars/restaurants on Lake Austin. Only 10 minutes from downtown. The yard was a little overgrown but the house was well furnished, nicely decorated, and clean!! Would definitely come back!!!

Great Rental
The house was great, and the location was excellent. Very close to lots of restaurants / bars / food trucks, and easy to get into the city. We had a few problems related to the rough weather that went through just before our stay but the owners and property manager did a great job addressing them quickly. The house was very clean and well-stocked with necessities like towels. Only real complaint I have is that the landscaping needs to be better maintained. The plants sticking into the driveway really did a number on our rental car. Despite that though, would definitely rent again.

Decent rental, but have been to better
We have rent from VRBO before, and I would call this rental just average. The rental was within walking distance to lots of shopping and restaurants/food trucks, and was very easy to get to. The rental itself needs some updating. There were missing baseboards in the kitchen, we found the front door lock to be finicky, and the washing machine worked, but was all rusty. The air conditioner is also old and needed a full day to get down to a comfortable temperature for my family, and even then it ran all the time (and we didn't set the temperature below their recommended lower limit). All in all, the rental needs some updating for the cost.

Hi MT, Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to leave such candid feedback about this home. We'd like to apologize for any inconvenience with the locks, but as a returning guest we're glad to hear you were able to reach out to our 24/7 Guest Experience support and resolve the issue of the sticking lock button. We followed up with the home owner and although the washer and dryer work great at this property we agree that they are older and we will now be working with the owners to update this thanks to your suggestion! There are instructions not to set the air conditioner below 72 in this home, but we realize this could be uncomfortable for guests in the middle of the summer here in Austin so we'll make adjustments to this, and go through the property to relay a list of various updates as we continue to improve this home for future guests. We sincerely hope the charm of this central bungalow outweighed any inconveniences during your stay and hope you'll consider returning to this, or another TurnKey property again in the future. Thank you so much for your time and we hope you have a wonderful year. Please come back and see us again soon! - The TurnKey VR Team

Clean, comfortable and convenient
There for ACL. Property was very clean. 10 minute drive to downtown, walkable to coffee shops and food trucks. A/C kept the house very comfortable. Small but good enough for three adults.

Wonderfully Charming Bungalow!
This adorable house in Austin felt homey and unique. The owners clearly spent time decorating and putting in special touches such as cool art work and Austin/Texas related books, objects, and wall hangings in the house--all this makes the stay feel special. They even have a curated case of amazing movies such as The Birds and Citizen Kane--if you need a night in, the house is ready for you. The kitchen was well stocked if you are ready to cook and the bedrooms were quite comfortable. The location is outstanding; there was so much within walking distance! I recommend Once Over coffee and Gordough's Doughnuts. While we didn't venture out on Austin Public Transit, there are bus lines nearby, and most everything is an easy drive because of this prime location. We have small children and they were completely happy; I imagine that the house would be just as comfortable for older kids or folks with no kids at all! You will definitely enjoy your stay at this house.

Awesome Austin Spot
This was an excellent rental. The property was clean, spices for cooking were provided, excellent service from Turnkey representatives to answer questions, and just an overall great stay. The house is located very close to all of the great restaurants and shops on Congress Ave. Starbucks is within walking distance, HEB is down the street about a two miles up Oltorf (don't forget to bring the recycle shopping bag like I did--LOL), and I didn't experience any issues with traffic like you do with some Austin locations. This house is centrally located and nothing is too far in any direction. Went to Winebelly right down the street which was fantastic. This house had the best of everything for a pet owner with the fenced in backyard and screened in back porch for washing and drying clothes or feeding your pet. The only downside if any was that the fence needed a small repair from the rental side and there was a loose board on the other side of the fence that belonged to the next door neighbor, so I suggest that pet owners survey the property before allowing your pets to run loose in the backyard without you. I would also like to mention that Taurus Academy (for Doggy Day Care) is also about 3.5 miles from the house with an AWESOME staff. My pets had a ball at their facility. I can't rave enough about this rental and hope to come back to this same spot soon...

Thank you for the compliments, and we love to hear how much you enjoyed your stay with us! We could not agree more about how close this house is to everything downtown Austin has to offer. The Winebelly is a wonderful place to grab a drink and relax. Thank you for all the feedback regarding the fence and our team has already repaired the fence, and this shouldn’t be a problem for any future stays. You were perfect guest and we appreciate you taking care of our home as if it were your own. Please come stay again anytime! -The TurnKey VR Team

Comfortable house in excellent location
The house was cozy, trendy and well maintained. The large yard was perfect for our dog to hang out. The location was perfect! Nice neighborhood and very close to many restaurants, shopping and downtown. I would definitely recommend this place to others.

LOVE!!!
My Fiance and I were looking for a getaway for New Years. We are not fond of crowded places, so we loved being close to downtown but not right inside of it. Everything was super easy to get to. The house was so cute and clean. We loved being able to have our own space and cook meals. We did a lot of hiking and Whole Foods eating. I would suggest both. I would recommend this house to anyone. Would love to come back and stay again!

Would stay here again.
The owner reps were available to answer questions I had before my stay as well as during the stay and the communication was very friendly. The place looks just like it does in the pictures. We really enjoyed being able to throw some steaks on the outdoor grill and loved the back yard. Within walking distance of some legit restaurants it was a cool neighborhood to walk through!

Really cute house
The house was clean, colorful and well located for our short trip for my niece's wedding in Austin. Everything was just a short drive. The second bedroom has 2 twin beds which worked out well for our two teens. You can walk to First Street which has restaurants and cafes, though traffic is heavy so I enjoyed just walking through the less busy streets to get a feel for the neighborhood.

A relaxing stay.
my wife and I wanted a relaxing stay in the city and we got one however. This a nice little place for two or three individuals but would be a little cramped with more. The main problems with this home is not the hpme itself but the management company. The yard looked like it had not been mowed or cared for in weeks. There is really not so much as grass but a yard of weeds. There are also trees hanging over the driveway that would scrape our car when we pulled in or left. The agave plant is too big for the space in front because my wife and I both were repeatedly poked by the sharp ends of their leaves. All in all the place is great but if I was the owner and paid Turnkey to manage the property for me I would expect a better job. Not to mention we were asked to start a load of laundry to "assist the housekeeper". I'm sorry isn't that their job? Would definitely stay again just not under a Turnkey property.

Hi John, We are so sorry to hear that you feel that way. Here at TurnKey we strive to offer an impeccable customer service experience so that our guests can have amazing stays in our properties, and it is our hope that you are conveniently able to reach us 24 hours-a-day regarding any questions or issues that may come up. We wish we had known about what you discovered so that we could have sent one of our local team members over to help clear some of the weeds or plants. This time of the year in Austin does create the perfect weather for weeds to pop-up quickly and grow rapidly, but please be assured we are taking care of the issues you mentioned and have the landscapers caring for the yard on a regular basis. Also, you mentioned our request that guests start a load of towels prior to leaving. This is only a suggestion of ours if guests have time and choose to do so, but is definitely not required. It's helpful for the Housekeeping Team because the sooner our crews can thoroughly clean each property, the better the possibility that we can offer all guests early check-ins. It is great to hear that you thought our house was nice, otherwise. By the way, you were great guests, and if there is anything else we can do, just reach out anytime to let us know. -The TurnKey VR Team

Great House, Fun Stay, Good location
We went to Austin for work and some vacation. The house was clean with good supplies. The lay out worked well for a family of 4 with 2 kids. I gave 4 stars instead of 5 due to the fact that we killed several mosquitos in the bathroom and 2 rolls of toilet paper is not enough for a 4 day stay. My 3 y/o came home with several mosquito bites. Also, the cable tv did not work. Otherwise we really enjoyed our stay and found the house comfortable. Home was convenient to most major attractions and the highway. We would definitely stay again!

Hi Anne, Thank you so much for the review, and we are happy to hear that you had a great stay at our place. That being said, we do apologize if some inconveniences occurred, and wish we had known during your stay so that we could have helped out. Here at TurnKey, it is our highest priority to make sure each guest has the best experience possible, and our 24/7 guest hotline is always available to help if anything comes up. With regards to the basic supplies offered in our properties, there should be a starter-supply of toilet paper in the bathroom (at least 3 rolls) so we will follow up with our Housekeeping Team to make sure they are leaving the appropriate amount. With regards to mosquito activity, it definitely does pick up this time of year when it warms up, but please be assured we will check for any issues within the home. We've also fixed the cable and have the TV working perfectly, now. By the way, you were absolutely wonderful guests, and if there is anything else we can do for you, just reach out anytime to let us know. -The TurnKey VR Team
SEU 2017 FAMILIA & FRIENDS
Home Sweet Casita! Very vibrant and clean small home w/space well used. It was located in a charming part of South Austin. We arrived in time to settle down, freshen up and head to SEU for my niece's Baccalaureate Mass on Friday evening just a few minutes from the university. Mexican dinner was at La Mexicana Bakery which was a couple of blocks away and served delicious tacos & pan dulce. Before the night was over we went to H.E.B. which was conveniently located near by for a few early morning breakfast items. Saturday morning we had morning coffee & nice warm home cooked breakfast on front nice porch before heading to the early Commencement at Frank Erwin Center just about 11 min. traveling distance through town and missing out on all the I35 traffic. Our weekend casita had plenty of spices, dishes, pans, utensils and propane grill. It was all very convenient for hosting a cookout gathering for our small Familia from Dallas who was in Austin just for my niece's special day (instead of the 2 hour wait at nearby restaurants). We relaxed on the back deck cooking burgers, talking, teens played board and card games. A few of my niece's college graduate friends stopped by and felt very welcomed and also loved the home. We received many compliments on the casita. Everyone finally started head out and we relaxed in the living room watching free movies on Demand TV. Sunday morning we had another nice quiet morning drinking coffee and a nice home cooked breakfast while we packed and prepared to leave our Home Sweet Casita in Austin. We will definitely look it up should we ever be in the area again or just to get away!

Convenient, quiet location
The house is in a quiet residential neighborhood conveniently located to the action on S. Congress. The beds were very uncomfortable the first night. The property managers responded right away with tempurpedic mattress pads, which made the beds much more comfortable for the rest of our stay.

The house was clean and had everything we needed for a four day stay. This house is located in a nice neighborhood. The location was convenient to S. Congress and 6th street. Easy access to all tourist attractions. The management company was easy to deal with and answered all my questions. Would definitely recommend this house and will stay here again if we visit Austin again.

Central location
The house is centrally located, has everything you need, and has a yard which is great if you have a dog. It also has cable TV which seems like a rarity with short term rentals. The only problem were the bed linens. The sheets were 100% synthetic and shiny - resembling a shower curtain liner. The bedspreads / blankets look like they've never been cleaned. I used my own bed linens. That said, Turnkey was amazing. Super responsive and really nice.

Perfect For A Sisters Trip
My two sisters and l had a fabulous stay in this cottage. We felt right at home, the space was so welcoming. We enjoyed the location, and walked the short distance to South Congress Street several times. There is good food, drink, ice cream, shopping, and entertainment close by. Travel downtown in a Lyft was no problem and a quick ride. Because we were looking for bridesmaid dresses, our exploring took us a bit outside the center, and we were glad to have a rental car for flexibility.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and appreciated the well-appointed kitchen and cleanliness of the space. I would absolutely stay here again!
