Chic 3BR at World of Tennis w/ Private Patio
"Our 10 guests enjoyed the 5 large bedrooms and their stunning scenic vistas over Lake Travis! We found the home spotless and delightful for our gatherings in the Living/Dining Room/Kitchen area on the main level, and deck, as well as the Recreation Room and porch with kitchen area and fireplace on the lower level. The Master Bedroom and En-Suite is particularly huge and beautiful. As noted by others and in the Rental Guide, the multi-button light-option switches switches take some practice, but they gave excellent, controlled brightness. he agent Susanna was always helpful with advice. The Living Room stone fireplace with a huge television screen above (compatible with laptop connections for our own family movies) gave a special setting for our Christmas present celebrations. The home is set alone at the end of a cul-de-sac, with only one other house a short distance up the street, as well as a large park on the other side of the home, and a nice driveway with parking outside the garage and in the street, giving a lot of privacy and quiet. The pools and exercise facility were open to us at the Hollows Beach Club site, and the kids and us had a nice hot pool swim several times in the 60-70 degree (winter) weather. All dozen of us (including two young children) loved having our celebration in this delightful home, and we all highly recommend it!"..."

The Hollows Lake-View Hideaway w/ Resort Amenities
"We had a great stay here. Perfectly located for easy walking to grocery, dining, shopping, and entertainment downtown. We met friends for dinner and then a show at the ZACH and were able to easily walk. It would also be convenient for walking along Ladybird Lake trail or events at Zilker Park. Easy in and out parking with quick access any direction you want to go. Private outdoor entrance also made it easy to access the unit. Kitchen is well stocked, much better than many locations we have stayed. Only downside was we had to hunt or shop for some cleaning supplies. There was one silver dollar size soap for three bathrooms, we looked through closets to find dish soap and dishwasher detergent and the only kitchen sponge for cleaning counters was moldy. Other than that, it was very clean, tastefully decorated and well supplied with plenty of towels and extra blankets. Great balconies with comfy seating for relaxing outdoors (or taking a nap!); the larger is covered to provide protection from the sun and the smaller has a panoramic city view for watching sunrise, sunset or anything in between. But our favorite was the floor to ceiling windows which offer a killer view of downtown. We had no issues whatsoever with the smoke smell previously described by some, and I am very sensitive to odors, especially cigarettes. We loved it here and plan to stay again when we return to Austin."..."

How to select the perfect vacation rental in Austin

Austin has quickly become one of the hottest travel destinations in the U.S. Known as the “Live Music Capital of the World,” Austin blends city-life and lake-life for a one-of-a-kind travel experience. Austin plays host to top music events like Austin City Limits and South by Southwest, as well as Formula One races, leading international technology conferences, and some of the best restaurants in the world. Follow these tips to make sure you select the perfect Austin vacation rental for your travel plans.

  1. Where to stay for Austin City Limits (ACL) music festival. Look for a vacation rental property near Zilker Park (just south of downtown), where the event takes place every year. You can find homes that are walking-distance to the concert, or even an apartment or condo in downtown Austin, which is just a quick Uber ride to all the action.
  2. Where to stay for South By Southwest (SXSW). To keep your finger on the pulse of this exciting conference, book condos and apartments near the heart of downtown. But if you’re looking for a break to take in Austin’s restaurants and off-beat music venues, stay on Austin’s trendy districts like Rainey Street, SoCo (South Congress) and east of I-35, as well as around South First and South Lamar.
  3. Where to stay when visiting the University of Texas. Whether you’re visiting for the first time or attending college graduation, vacation rentals near campus offer convenience and an incredible experience for families. Plus, the University of Texas Longhorns produce world-class athletes and incredible sporting experiences. Tailgate before a UT football game, catch home runs at Disch-Falk Field, or take in a basketball game at the Frank Erwin Center for all the Big 12 action.
  4. Where to stay on Austin’s lakes. Find homes on one of Austin’s numerous lakes (especially Lake Austin and Lake Travis) where you can enjoy water activities like swimming, boating, fishing and more. You can also experience communities like the Reserve at Lake Travis with pools and activity centers designed to provide a true Texas experience for you and your family.
  5. How to choose your own Austin vacation rental experience. One of the great benefits of staying in Austin is the diversity of homes and neighborhoods to fit any travel plan. Find downtown condos in the heart of the city, secluded communities just outside of downtown, trendy neighborhoods homes with hidden pools, elegant estates, or lakefront properties to create lasting family memories.

Austin Vacation Rentals Frequently Asked Questions

Companies like Airbnb and Vrbo operate listing websites that enable guests to research and book a vacation rental anywhere in the world. However, once a guest books the property, they need to work directly with either the homeowner, host or property manager any time they have questions or need assistance with booking or during their stay. This can be a challenge for some homeowners, particularly those who live far away from their vacation rental. TurnKey offers a consistent and reliable high-end experience, resulting in strong reviews, repeat bookings and more. TurnKey also has a local Austin team, 24/7 support and in-home technology to ensure an amazing vacation experience in every home, every stay, every time.

Yes! TurnKey has established the best network of professional house cleaners in Austin to ensure that our guests always arrive at an exceptionally clean home. Expect to find beds made with hotel-grade linens and bathrooms stocked with fresh towels and a complimentary starter set of toiletries.

Unlike many vacation rentals in the area, our local team and network of Austin house cleaners guarantee that you’ll never need to clean up at the end of your stay. Sometimes, especially during busy seasons, starting a load of towels or linens can help our house cleaners finish their clean more quickly. We certainly appreciate it when guests do this, but we do not require it.

TurnKey offers 24/7 guest support that you can contact at any time to make your stay more enjoyable. Paired with our local Austin team, we can respond quickly to any in-home help you might need.

All of TurnKey’s Austin vacation rentals are equipped with complimentary, reliable, high-speed WiFi so you can always stay connected.

Every TurnKey Austin vacation rental includes a fully-equipped kitchen where you can cook and prepare meals with your friends and family.

We’ve installed our proprietary digital locks on all Austin vacation rentals to offer our guests secure, keyless entry. Each code is time-sensitive, so you don’t have to worry about anyone else having access to the home while you’re there. Prior to check-in, you’ll receive arrival instructions with your custom code for easy, seamless access.

TurnKey carefully vets all of our homes, so you can be sure you’ll always stay in a premium vacation rental. We offer some of the most distinctive, unique vacation homes in all of Austin, backed by our exceptional home care and 24/7 guest service.
