One of the BEST lodging experiences of my career!

by Tom on 05/06/2019
Sincere shout-out to Patty Manchester and the Emerson Rents team for an absolutely fabulous stay in Austin, Texas. In typical (yet not-recommended) fashion, I waited until the last minute to secure lodging for an industry event in Austin, and after being laughed off the phone by every hotel in town, was connected to Emerson Rents through a mutual friend. Within minutes, Patty identified a house in a super-cool neighborhood in Austin, located within a short Uber/Lyft ride to downtown Austin. The house (“Historic Agave Bungalow”) was immaculate inside and out, with every possible amenity, and ready for me after what had been an ultra-hectic week of travel. Within seconds of walking through the house, seeing the inviting décor, and relaxing on the porch swing, I could feel my blood pressure drop and a smile spread across my face. My only regret is that I only stayed for two nights at one of the best lodging experiences of my career. Communication with Emerson Rents was great throughout; the payment process was quick, and access to the house was seamless. If you're planning a trip to Austin, check out Emerson Rents for a terrific lodging experience.

We did not want to leave!

by Juliet on 01/11/2019
We cannot say enough about how much we loved our stay at the Drake House! Such a fabulous, functional and stylish space on a quiet street filled with oak trees, just a couple of minutes walk from South Congress - can't beat that for an Austin experience! We would recommend the Drake House for anyone who wants a long stay in Austin but still wishes to be in close proximity to all that the city has to offer. We did not want to leave, and neither will you.

Comfy and Beautiful Place Close To Downtown

by Diana on 09/30/2018
I was in Austin for the first time for a convention, and it was my first VRBO type of experience. This apt. was just a 10 min. walk to the convention center. I did this walk back/forth several times a day, in July, without a problem, so if you are going to a convention, this is a great option.

The apt. was clean, bright, and comfy. I had a problem getting into the door, and the previous occupant hadn't left the key to the gate behind, but the property managers responded quickly. I second other reviewers recommendation of Cenote, the coffee/cafe place just two blocks away. Fantastic.

The main house is also rentable. I saw some reviews talk about the noise from the highway, but with the exception of some sirens on occasion, it didn't bother me at all. This is a gentrifying neighborhood, but as a single woman, I never felt uncomfortable. I did take Lyft back to the place at night (readily available, and cheap too).

If I am ever back in Austin, this is where I will stay.

Awesome house, Awesome location

by Jonathan on 09/30/2018
We could not ask for more. The house was extremely clean and well appointed, the location was very centrally located and the management company was totally on top of everything from start to finish.

ILA Conference in Austin

by Mary Lou on 09/30/2018
Our Condo was wonderful. We literally walked out the side door and were across the street from the conference center. We walked out the other side door and we were a block from Max's Wine Dive and Uncle Julio's. It was only 2 blocks away from 6th street. It was on the ground level, so no stairs. Other than the party upstairs until 3 in the morning on one of the nights, it was awesome.

Lovely home in peaceful residential neighborhood

by Donna on 09/30/2018
I was pleasantly surprised at the comfortable feel of the home! And it was within walking distance of my favorite restaurants along the river! The property had a very large bedroom with a sitting area for reading which I particularly enjoyed. It also had nice touches such as coffee and organic half and half in the refrigerator along with organic and natural bath and kitchen cleaning products. This was appreciated as I am sensitive to chemicals! The only items missing for me were kitchen towels and knives. Glad I brought along a paring knife, but a chef's knife and carving knife would have completed the kitchen necessities. Loved the nice walled patio for my dog and lush green ambience of the whole area! I would definitely recommend this lovely home for your visit to the Austin area!

Cute Cottage

by Cathryn on 09/30/2018
This was a nice temporary home for a month long stay. Nice little house, and a good location.

Wedding Prep

by Terri on 09/28/2018
We live in Iowa and our daughter was getting married at Creekside in Austin so we rented Bear Creek Modern for 2 weeks to prep for the wedding and have time to relax afterwards. It was a perfect place for our extended family to hang out and enjoy the pool. The kitchen was well equipped and we were able to cook meals for our large group. We found several restaurants / fast food with 10-15 miles. The house was clean and furnished with nice little touches like pool towels, extra linens, blow up mattresses (grandkids cowboy beds haha) and washer/dryer.

Our only suggestion to improve this wonderful house would be to install something in the garage bedroom to hang / put away clothes.

Great Place

by David on 09/28/2018
Great little place in a great location. Perfect for me and I experienced a for me new part of Austin. Will hopefully come back here next time in Austin. Everything in worked perfect besides a lose door handle and it has a good spot to park the car.

Girls Weekend

by Dorothy on 09/28/2018
Wonderful weekend in every way! The home was clean, spacious and comfortable! We Ubered to the city very inexpensively and quickly. Would stay here again. Management company very good to work with also.

Perfect Combo of Comfy + Cool

by Elisabeth on 09/28/2018
We absolutely loved our time in this house. It's a perfect combination of super comfortable + Austin cool - in great South Austin location. Easy access to Ben White (route 71/290) so you can get most places quickly.

Since we stayed for two months, we used every inch of the house -- from the comfy screened in porch to the smart kitchen to the tidy laundry room. The high ceilings made it feel super spacious -- and the character of the old house (transom windows, wood floors) gave it such a nice feel. And add the super comfy beds and the jacuzzi tub: heaven! We also used the sleeping cottage regularly -- it was and extra little quiet retreat.

Brooke (at Emerson) took excellent care of us too! At the end of our stay, no one was ready to leave!

Awesome Secluded House - Perfect Yard!

by Derrick on 09/28/2018
I've stayed in a lot of vacation rentals in Austin and this house is one of the best. It was fully outfitted with all the necessities and very well maintained for an older home. Two great things about this house, the location and the yard. It is tucked away in a secluded corner of a established neighborhood providing a safe and secure stay. If you are a pet owner, you will really appreciate the yard. It's spacious and well fenced with a privacy fence. There is also a well furnished screened in porch that is great for morning breakfast. The property management was super friendly and accommodating. There is also two great coffee shops, a few restaurants and a grocery story just around the corner. Enjoyed my stay a lot and would certainly stay here again.

Family Weekend in Austin

by Letitia on 09/28/2018
Great place to stay for a long weekend family reunion in Austin. High end appliances, linens, and furnishings. Well equipped kitchen with lots of utensils, dishes, glasses, and spices. Property management company very easy to deal with. Would definitely return!

Great House!

by Ali on 09/28/2018
We really enjoyed our stay. The house was very cozy and inviting, but it was spacious enough for our group of six. The house is also in a great part of Austin, very close to grocery stores and groovy little restaurants.

We spent most of our afternoons driving out to Johnson City, Dripping Springs, etc. to hike or enjoy the natural pools and springs west of Austin. We had really easy access from the house to the highways that took us right to our destinations. I would recommend this house to anyone who wants to stay in Austin but still get out to the great outdoors.

Bonus: this house has a great patio!

Best Ever Stay in Austin!

by Beth on 09/28/2018
A relaxing oasis in the heart of this vibrant, funky city. Total attention to every detail with luxury in mind. The property was immaculate and our special requests were taken care of in a very timely manner. The location in South Austin is perfect and we loved being able to walk to several restaurants. Emerson Guest Properties is efficient and delivers!

Austin Business Trip

by Joshua on 09/28/2018
Had to travel into Austin for a week long business trip. Needed to stay downtown. This was an amazing property. Right in the heart of Austin. Newly remodeled and very clean. Rooftop deck was amazing!

Lovely Finger Lakes Home

by Lorraine on 09/28/2018
My husband and I had a family wedding to attend in Skaneateles.
We have been very happy with Airbnb and, once again, were not disappointed.
The apartment is located a lovely 15 minute drive from Skaneateles.
The apartment is cozy and quiet and just as depicted in the photos.
The kitchen is well equipped with a supply of coffees and teas.
There is also a nice selection of books, DVDs and CDs for that rainy day.
Our only negative comment is that the refrigerator is noisy.
This is a charming apartment and we would definitely stay here again when in the area.

Cosy Comfy Country Retreat

by Garfield on 09/28/2018
This is a comfy and clean home away from home. The decor is featured on Google's images of Skaneateles' historic buildings. Absolutely everything you might need is provided except briquettes for the bar-b. Rather than it being a detriment that it is 12 minutes from town, it is quiet and central to places worth visiting eg. Ithaca and its Falls and vineyards. Also enjoyed the town of Skaneateles. Be sure to visit the old mill across the street.

Wonderful Stay

by Andree on 09/28/2018
We stayed at the Cottage for 2 months this summer and absolutely loved it. It is so cute and the location is really great! Walking distance from restaurant, Yoga, grocery, bus stops. The yard was super for the dogs and we loved the bikes. Emerson Property provides amazing service as well.

Awesome rental with tons of character!

by Leanne on 09/28/2018
First thing I noticed when walking into the front door was the spacious living room and the gorgeous kitchen. Stocked with all cutlery and cookware, it was everything we needed for breakfast every morning.
Every room was decorated tastefully and very comfortable. But the main bedroom bed takes the cake; the bed was as high as my hip! I literally had to climb UP onto the bed. And it was so comfortable. Best sleep I've had in awhile.
Walk in closet was also incredible! The only downside was that it was located inside the washroom so if someone was in there, you would have to wait until they're finished before you could get changed.
Location was also very convenient. Just located on the main street were a few coffee shops and some food trucks. We could just walk 5 mins to get to good coffee in the mornings.

Overall, it was a great stay! All 8 of us really enjoyed the rental and had a fantastic time.

Excellent stay in a cozy apt

by Shareen on 09/28/2018
The place is as described and excellent, we really enjoyed the location and stay. The icing on the cake is the owners, they were very accommodating when we had to add a guest to our group and they even mailed school papers that we forgot. Absolutely awesome!

Beautiful and modern place to call home!

by Julia on 09/28/2018
My husband and I rented this beautiful back-house for a month in between moving and moving into a house. We loved our time here! It soon became home for us! The space is set up efficiently and effectively and we are so glad to have found it. It suited our needs completely. We loved the location, convenient for just about everything! It was such a great experience the whole time; whether interacting with the property manager or the property owner we had professional yet warm and friendly encounters each time. Loved our time here! Would definitely recommend!!

My Daughters Wedding Weekend

by Shelby on 09/28/2018
This home was perfect for our family during my Daughters Wedding in Austin. We had 5 adults and 2 children in our party so there was ample space for everyone. The kitchen had everything we needed to feel at home. Even a small yard for my grandson to toss the football around. The management was very helpful and professional.

Perfect Place

by Pamela on 09/28/2018
Has a very nice stay in this rental. The apartment was beautifully decorated, and very cozy. The place was ideally located 11 miles from the town of skaneateles: close enough to enjoy everything the town has to offer, but far enough away to not have the negative impacts of traffic. Nice hiking paths nearby, less than 2 miles away, with a beautiful waterfall. However, the path is not maintained, so be prepared for muddy & steep conditions. Nice winery nearby as well.

Because we came with pets, the rental was absolutely perfect. It offered a large fenced yard in which the dogs ran & played.

 There's a high sulfur content in the water, but we would definitely stay again, and actually plan to do so in the Fall to take advantage of apple picking.

Cozy Midtown 3br/1ba Bungalow

by Ken on 09/27/2018
The Brentwood Bungalow was a perfect solution for us. We live in Austin and had to move out of our home for week while construction crews moved in. Luckily we heard about Emerson Guest Properties and found this home near by. It's roomy, tastefully decorated and supplied with all the creature comforts we expected, just as it was listed. I liked the cozy court yard patio off the bedroom.

People visiting Austin, you should know that this home has an added advantage with it's location, tucked into a good midtown neighborhood. Grocery, drug stores, restaurants and coffee shops are all within walking distance. The Metro stop is just steps away. You're within minutes of UT, downtown, Zilker Park and the Domain. If you need a Car-to-Go, there's usually one parked near by.

The folks at Emerson were very accessible and easy to work with. Any questions or issues I had were usually resolved with a quick phone call. I will definitely recommend to friends and family.

Perfect Central Austin Rental!

by Edward on 09/27/2018
We are locals who found this property for my in-laws during their visit. We live walking distance to the property, and everything about their stay was so great. My in-laws are already planning their next stay. The house is super clean, has comfy beds and is very nicely decorated. I think my in-laws called the property manager several times with lots of questions that were answered right away and with lots of patience! My kids loved being able to walk to "Nanny and Papa's" house every morning!! We all really enjoyed this property and will be booking it any time we have visitors in town!!!

Great apartment for ACL

by Steve on 09/27/2018
Apartment was spacious and slept three of us comfortably (with the provided air mattress). Great roof top patio and wonderful location next to whole foods and a few blocks from a bcycle station.

Wonderful place, everything we needed.

by Julia on 09/27/2018
The room was top notch. It has everything my wife and i needed. We were able to make ourselves food, yet it was close to everything. The bed was comfortable, plenty of towels, dishes and space. Highly recommend it!

Nice Clean House & Incredible Location.

by Stephen on 09/27/2018
The house was very cozy and neat. You could tell it had been updated recently. Great screened in back porch, beautiful landscaping, and quiet. You are right downtown and close to many great restaurants, bars, and local attractions.

Josephine Street for ACL

by Sean on 09/27/2018
We will DEFINITELY use Emerson in the future. Agent met us at the house, ensured parking was not an issue and provided the most welcoming check-in and tour we've ever had; including extensive European travels. Well done, Brooke! Thanks!

Great Choice!

by Brian on 09/27/2018
The Urban Homestead with Emerson Guest Properties was a great fit for us, a great alternative to a hotel stay. The home and decorations are really great. Location is excellent and I even rode the bike provided several times to SoCo and downtown. All in all, an A+ experience with Brooke and EGP!!! Many thanks.

Coolest little house in Austin!

by Rachel on 09/27/2018
The Mellow Yellow is the perfect little house for a great stay in Austin! Its in the ideal location- a nice quiet neighbourhood, but a five minute drive into the city. Easy to find, easy to get in and out of. And Brooke was also super accommodating to our travel plans! Would definitely stay here again!

The Perfect Austin Rental

by Amanda on 09/27/2018
My adult son and I stayed at The Nest over the Thanksgiving holiday and I could not have been happier with my choice!
The home was in a great location, it was comfortable, peaceful and had every amenity imagininable.
It was a nice touch to have spices, coffee, shampoo etc. provided for us on arrival!
I would recommend this property in a second to anyone planning a stay in Austin!
Brooke and her team at EGP did a fantastic job from start to finish.
Thanks - wish I was still there...

VERY NICE place, GREAT Location

by Kathleen on 09/27/2018
This is such a great location in Austin! We love the Clarksville area and easy walking to all the places downtown. The unit is a luxurious size for two people and the roof deck is wonderful! The management company was very responsive.

Quiet and Close to Everything

by Rebekah on 09/27/2018
We enjoyed our stay. Clean and extremely convenient! We were in the middle of everything! Would recommend this place for a quiet place to stay yet close to all the excitement. Beds were comfortable. Nicely remodeled. Nice backyard even though it was cold and rainy. We will definitely stay here again.

Perfect Accommodation in Austin!

by Jessica on 09/27/2018
This place is close to everything! Within walking distance to east side bars/restaurants and also close to 6th street bars. Huge shower, very comfy bed... It was clean, comfortable, and the decor was so cute! Loved it!

Terrific Experience

by Jean Ann on 09/27/2018
Terrific rental experience. The house was just as expected; no, better! I will certainly use Emerson Guest Properties again and AGAIN.

Perfect Stay

by Lisa on 09/27/2018
Just stayed in Casa De Miguel for ACL with 2 other couples and had a fantastic weekend. Directions to property were easy, house was very clean, very spacious and comfortable beyond our expectations. The furniture is very cozy layout is great, everything was at our fingertips, the owners/management thought of everything down to the local coffee they supply. We have already talked about booking same house for next year ACL..VERY PLEASED!

Cozy Retreat

by Martha on 09/26/2018
We had a very relaxing time staying at this cozy home! Great location, close to so many great restaurants and easy to get anywhere in Austin. Beds were comfortable which is so important! The screened porch is wonderful to sit and enjoy coffee.

Fabulous Getaway

by Jean on 09/26/2018
We had a fabulous week long vacation at "The Nest". The property is approx 10 minute walk to So. Congress St near Congress Street Cafe, Continental Club and other great restaurants and shops, and well situated to get to other parts of town. Travis Heights is a great area, with well kept homes and parks nearby. The property is actually one half of a house, with its own entrance and patio. Plenty of room for two couples, although only my husband and I were there for the week. It was super clean, with a very comfy queen bed (and we are picky!). TV had a satisfyingly channel selection and DVR accessibility for those who find themselves needing a night in for a change! Plenty of hooks, but we opted to use the 2nd bedroom closet. The management company was very professional and responsive and made our trip planning simple! We would definitely rent 'The Nest' again!

Great Little House!

by Larry on 09/26/2018
My friends came to visit me from Chicago, and I booked this house for them, because it is close to my house. The house is very cute, and was perfect for their stay. I would definitely rent this house again when I have out of town guest visiting. It was perfect, and Brooke was really easy and great to work with.

I'll be back!

by Erin on 09/26/2018
This property was immaculate and inviting. Beautifully decorated with Austin minimalism but oh so comfortable. Brooke was a pleasure to work with. I visit Austin at least once a year and try to live like a local, this place is my new favorite!

A perfect "Nest" in a perfect location

by Judy on 09/26/2018
My husband and I, along with my sister visiting from Alaska, thoroughly enjoyed our 4 day stay at The Nest. This two bedroom cottage located in Travis Heights could not be in a better location or neighborhood!!! It certainly added to our enjoyment while visiting family in Austin. Looking forward to staying here again in the future.

Awesome family birthday weekend!

by Kate on 09/26/2018
This place was perfect! Great central location. Very clean and spacious, comfortable beds and nice big table for our family dinner . The kitchen was well stocked everything couldn't have been better! Easy access and communication with Emerson . We would definitely stay again! Everyone commented on how well it all worked out to stay together.

The Cutest Place EVER!

by Sandy on 09/26/2018
My daughter and I just wanted to get tucked away somewhere cozy over winter break, and this place was PERFECT! So cute and comfortable. Everything we needed to cook all our meals. Love the decor.

WAY Better Than a Hotel

by Kyle on 09/26/2018
Everything was great. Warm rooms when I arrived (which was nice because it was raining outside). I worked at a convention the week and was incredibly sore. I was surprised to find Epsom Salt! Definitely used it to recharge my sore legs in the nice bathtub in the bathroom.


by Donna on 09/26/2018
The cottage was everything I expected and more
The screened porch was my haven for the weekend
The ability to get up in the morning and drink my coffee overlooking the back yard was what I needed
The weather was great and the location was perfect
I look forward to renting from EGP again!

First Timer

by Melinda on 09/26/2018
I was very pleasantly surprised at my experience at Mellow Yellow #2. It was perfect for me in every way. Clean, comfortable, private, well-equipped, easy to get to - I liked everything about Mellow Yellow #2. Not only would I stay there again, but I would work my trip around its availability. This was my first time renting instead of a hotel. I am sold!

Perfect Perfect Perfect

by Jordan on 09/26/2018
Our experience at the East Side Tree House was perfect! it was in a great location, had everything we could need/want, and was very clean. The space was perfect!!!

Cozy, Clean and Comfortable

by Mandi on 09/26/2018
We stayed in Mellow Yellow #1 for a week while our having renovations done in our home. We = 2 adults, 1 energetic 4 year old boy and one almost crawling 9 month old girl and 1 dog. We had a fabulous time. Kitchen was well equipped, beds comfortable, bathroom nice, laundry available, location was great.

Awesome Visit to Austin

by Nancy on 09/26/2018
We had a mini family reunion in Austin and stayed at this beautiful home in a fabulous location. Because we were traveling with two small children, we wanted to be able to walk to restaurants and shopping, and this location was perfect for that. Brooke (from Emerson)provided baby equipment at no cost, and responded quickly to the few questions we had, including printing and delivering an important document my son needed for work.

I highly recommend this home and Emerson Guest Properties.

Great Stay at The Nest

by Marilynn on 09/26/2018
We spent 6 comfortable nights at The Nest while visiting our children in Austin. It was comfortable, spotless and well stocked. Having the washer/dryer made it possible to pack light.
The neighborhood was great. We will stay there again for sure!

Amazing Couples Trip

by Kris on 09/26/2018
A last minute decision led us to this amazing find in Austin. The house was absolutely the cutest thing ever. The beds slept great and every room came with a queen size bed. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook many meals. The space was extremely clean. Great stay and wouldn't change anything about it.

Muy Bueno!

by Jordon on 09/26/2018
Totally awesome! Amazing house with every thoughtful amenity you could imagine! Very spacious, clean, and close to downtown fun! We will definitely stay here again when we come back to Austin!

Sweet Nest!

by Jennine on 09/26/2018
A friend and I met in Austin for an extended weekend. For both, it was our first visit to the city. We couldn't have asked for better accommodations! The house and neighborhood were absolutely charming! The home, beds included, was very comfortable and we appreciated that it was exceptionally clean and tidy. We hope to visit again!

Perfect Stay!

by Deborah on 09/26/2018
We stayed in the Casa de Miguel property for 4 nights and had the best time ever!!! This was the perfect space. Very clean, great location and so comfortable! They really thought of everything.

Great location, deck is spectacular!

by Kathryn on 09/26/2018
This was a great place to stay on a 3 week visit to Austin! I had plenty of space for visitors, and for my dog. I loved the rooftop deck which has a stunning view of downtown. I was able to walk or ride a bike a everywhere I wanted to go. The place is very comfortable and had everything I needed for a great stay. The only downside is the tiny parking space. I would stay there again though!

We will be back!

by Laura on 09/26/2018
The cottage is just what you would expect...very charming! Emerson Guest Properties is wonderful and they work hard at making your stay a great experience.
We spent a lot of time on the screened porch...and also indoors watching the Masters on the large tv. The house is cozy and comfortable.
The setting has a very secluded feel, with green and lush vegetation. The back lawn was in need of mowing...but Austin had a lot of rain the week prior to our arrival.
The claw foot tub/shower combo is very nice. I wouldn't recommend it for an older guest with any difficulty climbing into it for a shower. It is the only bathroom.
Parking on the street was the best option.
The house has retained it's charm and it is very comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet and only ten minutes to UT.
We look forward to another stay!

Perfect Hide-away in Central Austin!

by Susan on 09/26/2018
Miserable flight and high fences around all the neighborhood properties looked ominous at 1:30am...BUT what a piece of heaven "902B" is! Top quality in everything- from the rainforest shower to the most comfortable bed, to the Cuisinart's timed coffee machine to the front-yard parking spot. Owner John was cheerful and gave us great walking directions and eatery suggestions. Getting under I35 into downtown would have been tricky without his guidance. Their dog, Azore, knew we were dog-saps from the beginning and charmed us to death. We were able to arrange a slightly later check-out time with the management company, making a 6pm return flight less difficult. We'd go back this weekend, if we could!

The perfect Austin Stay!

by Hamilton on 09/26/2018
The rental was super clean and in a great location. Emerson Guest Properties was extremely helpful and allowed for a late checkout due to travel changes. In sum, the perfect rental experience. Thanks!

Apartment Perfect for Two

by Ellen on 09/18/2018
Very nicely designed and super clean apartment, perfect for two. Neighborhood is up and coming, and very close to the interstate, but this made for easy access to/from airport, all around town and for Westcave and San Antonio day trips. Did not have much interaction with owners, and that was fine. Would definitely stay here again!

Awesome Space

by Jessica on 09/18/2018
We had a great stay at the studio. It's a beautiful space that was so relaxing to return to at the end of the day. It's a bit of a bus ride from downtown (30min, and buses come every 20-30min), but it's just one bus or an inexpensive taxi ride. And there's a couple of fun places to explore within a 15-20min walk (43rd St at Duval, and Ave F @ 53rd/North Loop - really liked Epoch Coffee!). And loved Austin, what a great city 🙂 We had a bit of trouble figuring out what house it was when we first arrived as it was late and there aren't many streetlights, but it's a friendly, safe neighbourhood and we eventually figured it out!

Great Place

by Burch on 09/18/2018
Modern, clean and close to good stuff. You can't beat this place for the price and Brooke was always helpful and responsive. Two thumbs up!


by Judy on 09/18/2018
A perfect week in Austin. The apartment was beautiful. Beautifully done. Tastefully decorated. Large shower with tons of soap, nice shampoo/conditioner. Full bathroom upstairs. Half bath downstairs. Comfortable big bed. Blinds that blocked out all of the sun if we needed it. Fully stocked. It was really more than we needed - big washer and dryer. Huge fridge. The location couldn't be beat- in a residential area off West 6th. The organization of the property couldn't have been better- keyless entry makes everything easier. Wifi, checkin, checkout was all very clear. Parking space was perfect. Guest parking was always available. Unfortunately, we didn't get to use the terrace area because of the weather-- but it was beautiful. We really didn't want to leave. The next time we come back to Austin, we will definitely try to stay here. Thank you Brooke! 🙂

Cute Cottage

by Melissa on 09/18/2018
Pleasant stay in a cute cottage. The neighborhood is nice with a dog park and restaurants within walking distance. Management was very helpful. Easy instructions to get in and get to the cottage. I forgot some clothes in the closet and they mailed them back to me. Very helpful and respond in a timely manner. Would stay here again.

Perfect Getaway

by Katrina on 09/18/2018
This rental was perfect for a relaxing "girls weekend". The house looked exactly like the pictures shown, and was super clean. It has everything you need to cook and relax, and is close to all the great restaurants and shops in South Austin. Brooke was great about responding to my questions! I would stay here again!

Cute House/Great Location

by Sarah on 09/18/2018
This is a great little home in a nice central location. A very short drive to good food, shopping, parks and sights. Although it is walking distance to some things, I would recommend a car since there aren't any sidewalks and South Lamar is a bit busy to walk along. Although right off of a main street, the house is in a nice quiet neighborhood. The house was just the right size for a small family and was nice and clean and we were thankful for the air conditioner which worked great. My only suggestion would be to stock up on a few more plates/ bowls/ cups and utensils for the kitchen.

Beautiful Stay with Comfort and Accessibility

by Jessica on 09/18/2018
The house we stayed in was PERFECT! It was spacious with a very nice patio (enclosed so no mosquitos get to you!). The rooms were big and cozy. Plus the stay was very close to downtown. Perfect stay for a perfect getaway!

Mother Daughter Weekend

by Kathleen on 09/18/2018
The home is wonderfully decorated with quality furniture. We drove in to Austin from the Dallas area for a fun mother/daughter weekend. The photos of the home are exactly what the home looks like, although it looks so much better in person. The beds and sofa were amazingly comfortable and there was plenty of space for the 8 of us to hang out. The location was absolutely ideal as it is SO close to so many of Austin's hotspots. We decided to drive, although walking to the downtown area is not out of the question. I am already looking for another excuse to rent this house again!

Great Stay!

by Mark on 09/18/2018
This house was so nice to be in. The furniture was great, beds were nice, bathrooms had shampoo and conditioner and kitchen had everything we needed. It was a good location, and easy to get around. I'd definitely recommend this place to a friend.

What a gem!

by Alan on 09/18/2018
We really enjoyed our weekend stay in this classic quaint rental. Great location in a quiet neighborhood with lots of privacy. The screened porch is the perfect place to relax with family and a Shiner. Our dog loved the yard.

Great Place to Stay

by Melissa on 09/18/2018
Had a great time at the East Side Tree House - within easy walking distance of downtown, near tons of barbecue spots, with a great park/riverwalk just a few blocks away. House was clean, pretty, and well-stocked.

Amazing Rainy Weekend

by Stacy on 09/18/2018
Our trip fell right in the middle of Hurricane Bill which luckily blew right over Austin! We spent the weekend on bikes in and out of the train, on Lake Travis and exploring all of the local restaurants and bars! A great time was had by all and the house perfectly slept 8 gals comfortably. I liked that the bedrooms were separate from the living space and all of the amenities, spices and condiments were stocked!

Great Stay!

by John on 09/18/2018
This was a great stay both because of the nice property and the nice location. We have stayed in airbnb locations before that ended up being in sketchy neighborhoods. Not this one. Everything was great. Nice finishes in the house. Very comfortable.


by Rachel on 09/18/2018
I stayed in this home with my family and we absolutely loved it. The interior was perfect and just so thoughtfully put together. The home was very well equipped and really perfect. I love the neighborhood and can't wait to come back. The swing in the front was really appreciated by my kids as well!

Awesome Experience

by Lydie on 09/18/2018
Description of property was accurate, clean/well-maintained, beautiful, affordable.The manager provided great customer service,and I would totally recommend this to a friend. It is walking distance from downtown, and really enjoyed our stay!

We loved this house!

by Faith on 09/18/2018
This house was at the perfect location and wasn't too far from anything! Everything was clean, the Internet was fast, and there were bikes for us to use as well. The best part about this place is the decor- the house looked gorgeous, especially the back house. My family and I loved staying here, and I would recommend it to all.

Great First Stay at Appletree!

by Timothy on 09/18/2018
We were the very first guests at Appletree Point Cottage, a cozy lakefront cabin on Skaneateles Lake. The owners were very accommodating in working with our schedule and very easy to work with overall. The cottage is perfect for one or two couples, or a couple with young children. All the furnishings and appliances are new. What makes this spot so special is it is at lake level, so you do not have to deal with stairs down to the lake (unlike most properties on Skaneateles Lake). It is a gem and we'd love to come back on a future Finger Lakes trip!

Fourth of July Getaway

by Kathy on 09/18/2018
The location was great, easy walking to many attractions. House has amazing bathrooms, and lots of towels, linens, blankets and pillows. The walk way in the front was a little tricky walking on, and the parking was not the best since the people in the back need access to their property. Only one car allowed in driveway, and one on the street. Over all was pleased with house and would stay again.


by Emily on 09/18/2018
The rental isn't in a super touristy part of town, which I think is best if you're familiar with Austin a little. That being said the home is beautiful. It's decorated in a chic and comfortable fashion. Thinking about our next stay now! 🙂

Oasis in the Heart of the City

by Crystal on 09/18/2018
Wow!! Our family stayed at this condo just off 6th Street for four days, three nights. It is beautifully appointed in a PERFECT LOCATION and has everything you'll need to enjoy a fabulous stay. The kitchen is well stocked, and the rooftop deck is amazing. They even had our favorite coffee and organic sugar on hand! The property manager, Brooke, was very helpful at every turn and provided us with all the information we needed to access our rental. The app she provided even had lists of points of interests, current activities, best restaurants nearby, etc. This property is truly an oasis in the heart of the city. We can't wait to go back!!

Family Visit

by Richard on 09/18/2018
My wife and I stayed at the Tree House for 9 days, visiting our son and our new grandson. We had our border collie with us. We were completely comfortable in this apartment, with all amenities we needed. It was clean and neat, and perfectly situated for us, as our son's family was only 1/2 mile away. We also really enjoyed the nearby river for walks with our dog, and of course many of Austins best restaurants were also very nearby.

Gem in a Great Neighborhood

by Kristin on 09/18/2018
The rental was described thoroughly and accurately, and we were absolutely thrilled with all aspects of it. The back deck is fantastic and we spent some great time out there. Great neighborhood and neat little home! Thanks for sharing!

Great stay in Austin!

by Allison on 09/18/2018
We loved every bit about the condo in Austin. You cannot beat the location. There were so many good stores and restaurants nearby that having a car was not a necessity. The condo was clean and had everything we needed. The only suggestion I would have for the owners is to add a baking pan and a pizza cutter. Very minor and we survived! 🙂 I would definitely stay here again. Check in and check out was super convenient as we downloaded the mobile app. Great unit!

Home Away From Home

by Stephen on 09/18/2018
This apartment is absolutely gorgeous. The bed is exceptionally comfortable and the en-suite bathroom is ideal, with a large shower cubicle that I made good use of in the Texas heat! The fridge was thoughtfully stocked with tea and coffee and there are enough pots, pans and crockery to serve up a decent meal if you're so inclined. The gas stove in particular was a real luxury. The one inconvenience for me as a pedestrian was getting across the I35 to the Convention Centre, etc. but this was easily solved using Uber. It's also worth noting that I couldn't get the TV in the bedroom to tune into any channels. Those two tiny gripes aside, it was an absolute pleasure to stay at this little suite and I would definitely recommend it!

Perfectly Quaint/Great Location

by Christopher on 09/18/2018
The Keasbey Cottage was perfect for our family of 3. The house was spotless, and decorated very nicely. The screened in porch was really nice to have dinner on in the evenings! It was very rainy during our stay so we didn't go into the yard, but the porch allowed us to be outside and stay dry. Every morning we took a short walk to JuiceLand for fresh smoothies. Emerson allowed us to check in early and also provided us with a high-chair for the baby upon request. We definitely plan to stay at the Keasbey Cottage again the next time we visit Austin.

Great location!

by Debra on 09/18/2018
We stayed at Little Josephine for 3 nights. The location couldn't be beat--walking distance to so many great restaurants and entertainment venues. The property was very clean and well-appointed. It was a cozy fit for our family of 5 and served as a great home base for our stay in Austin. Brooke was so helpful with all of our needs, including printing our boarding passes when we were leaving. We would definitely stay there again!

Awesome Little Apartment

by Lindsey on 09/18/2018
The rental in Austin was perfect! Nice, clean and private. Close to downtown and in a quiet neighborhood. We took Uber around the city mostly but it's definitely within biking distance to downtown. Christina & Brooke the property manager were very easy to get a hold of with questions and was quick to respond. Very helpful and nice, great to work with!

Always a great place to stay

by Paul on 09/18/2018
This was our second visit to this beautiful home. Great location, clean and immaculately kept. We'll stay here whenever we're in Austin

Cute Bungelow, Cute Neighborhood and Close to Downtown

by Marie on 09/18/2018
I've stayed here multiple times and find the cottage very comfortable. Very clean and Brooke and her staff at Emerson are so helpful and responsive to maintenance issues. I really enjoy sitting out on the backyards screened porch in the morning while having coffee. Lots of big trees give the backyard quiet and privacy.

In My Top 10 Vacation Spots

by Blaine on 09/18/2018
Lake front rental with clear water, excellent weather, clean accommodations with amenities provided, super private but with wonderful neighbors, and unlimited things to do!

Loved It!

by Jill on 09/18/2018
I loved the unit! The location was within walking distance to the Austin Convention Center, but I don't recommend walking at night. Uber/Lyft and pedicabs are great alternatives!

Great location near SoCo

by Lawrence on 09/18/2018
Property was extremely clean, with great effort made to include some appreciated touches such as, bottled water in fridge, shampoo, SUNTAN LOTION, etc. Within easy walking distance (or 2 min drive) to heart of SoCo. Quiet building in general, with friendly tenants, and ample parking. Emerson Property Mgmt was outstanding! Contact was fast and easy. Excellent email responsivity, and by phone availability.

Girls Weekend

by Emily on 09/18/2018
Casa de Miguel lived up to expectations! The home was not only clean and tidy, it is adorable! We felt comfortable and at home while getting to explore a fun new city. I will definitely stay and another Emerson property rental, and maybe even will try this one again. The neighborhood is eclectic and has great restaurants worth checking out.


by Frances on 09/18/2018
This home is wonderful. Great location!! The house was very clean and the kitchen was the best stocked kitchen of any house we have rented. We enjoyed our stay at The Nest!!

Austin City Limits

by Edward on 09/18/2018
This place was fantastic!!! A friend of mine and I came to Austin for ACL and this place was everything we needed or could ask for. It was spotless and had everything need for cooking. The balcony was nice as well! It was stocked with coffee, shampoo, conditioner, and plenty of soaps. The location was the best part. Walking distance to Congress, Zilker park, and just a 5$ uber ride to 6th street. The neighborhood was really nice and safe to walk at night. Overall I would say the stay was perfect! Great Stay

Wonderful Walks in Travis Heights

by Nicole on 09/18/2018
Travis Heights is my favorite suburb in Austin. We enjoyed how close it was (walking distance!) to famous coffee shops, food trucks, boutiques, and the local market that stocks locally made gourmet ice cream. Close to the Long Center, the Austin Mural, and Alamo movie theaters. Excellent choice for a weekend, we were lucky to stay there a week.

a HUGE success

by Marianne on 09/15/2018
The Clarksville Cottage was a HUGE success for our 5 day trip to Austin. It's located in a fantastically funky, hip neighborhood so close to everything Austin has to offer. The neighborhood was safe that the house is located right across the street from the local fire house. We never heard any sirens at all. The house was super clean, the beds were super comfortable, and the entire experience exceeded our expectations. On my daily walk, I got to see the rest of the cool Clarksville neighborhood. And every morning we sat on the front porch and drank our coffee while watching all the neighbors walking their dogs. We felt right at home and will definitely be back!!!

Perfect Weekend House

by Emily on 09/15/2018
We had such a great time at Casa de Miguel! 8 girls flew in from all over the country to spend a weekend together, and we couldn't have picked a better house. Everything we could have wanted was provided (lots of towels, coffee and creamer for the mornings, beach towels for Barton Springs, plenty of dishes), and the house was just a phenomenal space for gathering. Plus it's walking distance to great restaurants, and a quick drive or bike ride to downtown. The property was immaculate and gorgeous. Would highly recommend!

ACL Stay 2015

by Joelle on 09/15/2018
This house was perfect for our family stay in Austin for ACL 2015. We spent a great deal of time on the festival grounds, so it was nice to come back to a home at the end of the day. It was possible to walk to the event, but Uber rides to the festival were only $6! Overall it was great to see and stay in a part of Austin we had never visited before. A quick walk to the food trucks was also a bonus in the morning. We would definitely stay here again for ACL.

Love it!

by Howard on 09/15/2018
We loved the cottage and the general area. We were on the go most of the time so we were not there too much but the bed was incredibly comfortable and the accommodations clean and accommodating. The decor was fun. We didn't cook or anything but we did enjoy the coffee maker. We will definitely come back.

Perfect Stay!

by Melania on 09/15/2018
Loved my stay here for several reasons! It had all the amenities we needed, conveniently located to acl, clean and nicely designed, and the contact person Brooke was really great to communicate with back and forth. I highly recommend this stay if you're in the area.


by Laura on 09/15/2018
We had a wonderful stay at the Clarksville Cottage. It was just perfect for the 2 of us. Conveniently located to some restaurants within walking distance as well as to downtown. The house was furnished beautifully....everything had a real personal touch. And the outdoor space was especially nice. We would recommend this property to anyone looking for a place in Austin!

Our 2nd Stay Here

by Christopher on 09/15/2018
Our family of 3 had a wonderful second visit at the Keasbey Cottage! It was just as great as our first visit, and we felt even more at home. This is our go-to rental in Austin now!

Fun time in Austin

by Steve on 09/15/2018
We had a great time in Austin celebrating 60th and 65th birthdays. We really enjoyed Casa de Miguel. Such a great landing spot after our days out touring Austin, and enjoying the great restaurants and music venues. We were able to walk to many restaurants and loved that. Everything was perfect for our stay.

Great Home Away From Home

by Erin on 09/15/2018
Had a wonderful weekend in Austin staying at this property. It was clean, pretty adorable, and a great location. Kitchen was well acquainted. Check in and out was easy. Good restaurants just down a few blocks. Close to downtown to be near but not right there. And i could have spent days just relaxing on the back porch. We were a group of three, and it was a perfect place for our weekend away.


by Megan on 09/15/2018
The house was perfect. It was small and quaint and very comfortable. We utilized the screened porch more than any other space in the house. It's on a quiet street but very close to everything. I will stay here again. We actually arrived early and they allowed us to check in early as well. I was thoroughly impressed.

Weekend Downtown

by Nick on 09/15/2018
Great location, and very cool apartment. The rooftop was great! Walking distance to a TON of great downtown spots!

Great Cottage and Location!

by Carol on 09/15/2018
House was perfect for family of three. Very comfortable beds, fully stocked kitchen (thanks for coffee!), nice porch, although it was rainy while we there. Perfect location near UT campus, short drive to downtown. Hyde Park has a fantastic bakery (Quack's) and restaurants that you can walk to.

First Class Thanksgiving

by Cindy on 09/15/2018
This was one of the nicest experiences we have had with vacation rentals. Everything was first class

Fantastic Apartment

by Dan on 09/15/2018
This was a fantastic little apartment in Austin that was walking distance from EVERYTHING on west 6th street. At the same time, it was only a $5 Uber ride to the bars on East 6th street and some other areas

Great Stay!

by Benoît on 09/15/2018
The house was easy to find. We arrived at around 7 pm and accessed the property easily with management's arrival instructions. The house was very clean and had all the comforts and amenities as described in the listing. It's not far from downtown. We also enjoyed the many restaurants that are just 2 blocks away. Shopping at a gas station 1 block away. EGP was also helpful in finding the perfect restaurant downtown: we just sent a text msg and had an answer within minutes; great service! In short: a very nice stay in a house with all needed comfort in a nice neighborhood.

Great Experience

by Jodi on 09/15/2018
We found this experience to be great. The property was exactly as advertised. The house was clean and well-maintained. We highly recommend this property and their management company!

Great Place, Amazing Location

by Jen on 09/15/2018
My family of four stayed at Little Josephine for a week (2 adults, 2 babies). The house was immaculate, very comfortable, and was right in the middle of everything in the city that we came to see/do. We would absolutely stay here again, and highly recommend the property.

Awesome Place to Stay

by Krystel on 09/15/2018
The place was very nice! It was super clean, and the location is perfect! There is a plethora of bars and restaurants within walking distance or just a quick 3 minute ride share away. The check-in process was very easy, and if I had any questions either Critina or her property manager was able to answer my question by phone or text. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone staying in Austin!

Christmas in Austin

by Holly on 09/15/2018
Great location in a wonderful neighborhood. It's a nice walk to South Congress with unique shopping, rest., food trucks, music, you name it, it's there! The propery management company was the best I've ever worked with. There web-site made everything very accomadating and easy.

Ideal Accommodations

by Ronnie on 09/15/2018
From initial enquiry I was kept fully informed of all facts concerning payment, arrival/departure details for the rental n a professional manner.
The property was easy to find and gain access to, finding a clean and tidy environment
This is a comfortable home for a family holiday with everything one requires to
have an enjoyable stay, with value for money and lots more freedom than staying in an hotel!
No hesitation recommending this property and would certainly use again.

Spacious 2 Bedroom Duplex

by Sharon on 09/15/2018
A clean, spacious duplex greeted us on our recent stay in Austin. Well-located in the south, central area, the unit was quiet, well laid-out, and with a large, fenced-in back yard for our two doggies. It was also well-appointed with everything we needed for a most comfortable stay. We'd request it again, next time we're in Austin.

New Year Nesting

by Thori on 09/15/2018
Very pleasant visit in Austin just off South Congress. Our accommodations were clean, quiet and fully outfitted with kitchen, wifi, laundry, and comfortable living and bedrooms. Nice neighborhood within easy walk of S. Congress and Town Lake. Easy check in/out.

Excellent Stay

by Elizabeth on 09/15/2018
Wonderful Cottage with Charming Amenities. It was so nice to be able to relax in such a nicely decorated space. This cottage is located so conveniently we were able to see so much we ended up not spending as much time there as we could have enjoyed! I highly recommend it.

Great 2-Week Stay

by Rafael on 09/15/2018
We stayed at Mellow Yellow when our builder extended our closing date. We lived there for a little over two weeks. Such a great location! It was very clean when we arrived. The place was amazing. We arrive and noticed that the microwave was not working. Management replaced it the very next day. It had everything you would need for a short or longer term rental. The kitchen was inviting to cooking, the living room cozy, and the bedrooms comfortable. I would recommend Mellow Yellow to friends coming to Austin.

Great Place to Stay in Austin

by Robert on 09/15/2018
The house was wonderful. Booking was easy and management team responded quickly. The location could not be beat. The home is close to everything you could want in Austin and the neighborhood was safe and quiet. The home was clean, easy to access and provided everything. I will be staying here again the next time I'm in Austin.

Lovely Austin Stay

by Jessica on 09/15/2018
My rental experience was great! The place was described accurately online, so there weren't any surprises when I arrived. The place was extremely clean. It really did feel like my home away from home during my stay in Austin. Thank you!

cozy and comfortable

by Sandra on 09/15/2018
We frequently visit our son and daughter in law in Austin. This was our first stay at the Mellow Yellow and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The unit is very cozy and comfortable. The backyard was perfect for our small dog to roam while we enjoy sitting on the patio. The location was very convenient and there are many shopping centers. Everything about this rental was good, the management was well organized and we have no complaints. We plan on staying here for our future visits to Austin.

Perfect Ladies' Weekend Spot

by Adrian on 09/15/2018
We had the most wonderful time at this home. It is absolutely beautiful and everything was perfectly kept, from the dishes to the rooms to the decor. It is the perfect location and is walking distance from all sorts of coffee shops, restaurants, and the food trailer park. I plan on making another trip to this home!

Great Pad in a Top Notch Location

by Katy on 09/15/2018
Park Lane Modern is a well-appointed, tasteful townhouse perfectly set up for groups (three bedrooms, well separated, each with its own bath) in one of Austin's best locations. Just steps from South Congress with its great restaurants, coffee shops and food carts, yet on a quiet, peaceful residential street. Will definitely stay here again!

Great SoCo Property

by Adriana on 09/15/2018
It was such a great stay! The apartment was very nice and clean and Brooke was very good about getting back to me when I had a question or request. Her assistant was also great and when she came by to replace some light bulbs, was also very nice about helping me figure out the TV.

Great Vacation Rental!

by Emily on 09/15/2018
We had a wonderful stay at The Nest. The property was exactly as shown in the pictures. Check-in and check-out were a breeze. This property even had its own app to get details on the house as well as nearby attractions. The location is great, very easy to get around and centrally located.

Absolutely beautiful and comfortable space

by Emily on 09/15/2018
Very modern and beautiful rental, great location, and fantastic amentities. Really felt like a home away from home. The agency and host were very accommodating about early check-in and check-out times. I would absolutely recommend this rental to anybody!

Amazing Space!

by Leah on 09/15/2018
The property was very clean, presented as photographed, and walking distance to South Congress and downtown. We'll certainly rent again!

Definitely Recommend to Anyone

by Evie on 09/15/2018
I stayed with five friends at the Keasbey Cottage and it was such a great experience. Brooke was quick to respond, the directions were easy to follow, and check-in was smooth. The cottage was in such a pretty, quiet neighbourhood just a quick Uber ride downtown- the perfect place to relax after a long day out in Austin. The cottage itself was clean, beautiful, and cozy, yet definitely spacious enough for the 6 of us. It had all the amenities we could want and the backyard and screened in porch were amazing. I would definitely recommend the Keasbey Cottage to anyone visiting Austin!

Our Girlfriends' Reunion

by Janet on 09/15/2018
We had a girls reunion at this lovely home which started with 6 but ended with 4 ladies. This home was perfect with 4 we each had our own beds and plenty of bathrooms for sharing. LOVE the decor & style. Was very clean and the owner left us a wonderful gift basket along w/ flowers & wine. Nice surprise! The bathrooms all have great quality soaps & shampoos & all the amenities even coffee. We will def. refer and hope to stay here again. Every thing about it was perfect!

My Weekend at the Treehouse

by James on 09/15/2018
The experience was great. The room was well prepared,clean,functional in every way. It was like having my own slice of home tucked away in East Austin.
The accommodations were perfect from the white fluffy towels to the comfy bed to the coffee with natural sugar . It was all a perfect delight. I cannot wait till my next conference to come back.

Great location and lovely space

by Erin Ryan on 09/15/2018
My mom stayed here for 3 nights. I live a block away so it was perfect! I briefly met the owner and she was very nice. The place itself is airy, clean and adorable. Very basic, but has everything you need.

Fantastic House in a Great Location

by Jana on 09/15/2018
My family had a fantastic stay at Park Lane Modern. Couldn't ask for more - the house was very comfortable inside and out, a fantastic design that takes advantage of natural light. Location can't get any better - walking distance to many great restaurants, easy to get to the walking path on the lake, and a nice neighborhood to walk around. Will definitely stay again. We had one issue when we arrived - we contacted the property management company and the responded right away. Very professional.

Location can't be beat!

by Elizabeth on 09/15/2018
We stayed here over a weekend and had a wonderful time. The house was extremely clean and nicely decorated. We could walk to a lot of different bars and restaurants, including the Alamo Drafthouse movie theater (if you've never been, you should definitely try it out - so cool!). Zilker Park and Lady Bird Lake trail were also within easy walking distance. On top of that, the rental had a beautifully landscaped backyard and screened in porch. Overall a great experience, would definitely recommend.

Great Place!

by Shelly on 09/15/2018
We received precise instructions before arrival, so access was very easy. They keys were in a lockbox, so we didn't have to worry about connecting with Cristina. The home was exactly as described. Very unique, clean and smelled nice. Comfy bed and great shower. It's a perfect size for 2 people. Easy access to 35, 6th street, UT and Congress. Loved the folder in the home listing local bars and restaurants! Cenote is right around the corner. Their lattes and breakfast were yummy! Loved Cenote's ambiance too. Will definitely stay there again!


by Matthew on 09/15/2018
It was my first time with AirBnB and I outdent have been happier. It was much less than a hotel, and a much better experience. Staying in a private residence enhanced our trip feeling much more connected to the community than hotel. The house had everything needed to enjoy our stay. We were group of 3 so their was plenty of room and space. The neighborhood is was very quiet and we were just two blocks from SOCO which is loaded with all types of restaurants. We couldn't have selected a better location. The house was amazing! The photos reflected exactly what the house looked like. Every last detail was addressed including the binder with everything you would need to know about the house. The lock box with the keys, the parking, parking pass, cable TV etc. We cant say enough about this home, we highly recommend it and would stay their again in a heart beat.

Austin Spring Break

by Lynn on 09/15/2018
Hard to believe, but the Urban Homestead was even better in person than in the photos! The size of the rooms, layout, and style make you feel at home from the moment you step in from the huge front porch. LOVED the cafe lights that connect the house and the separate guest space and the kitchen is so well-equipped. The home is located close to all the action in the South Congress strip where you can find Jon Dee playing at the Continental Club, dig into Torchy's tacos, enjoy a great cocktail at the Crow Bar, and/or get a late afternoon coffee at Jo's or ice cream at Amy's or try your first Hey Cupcake. Perfect for all 4 of us (mom, dad, and 2 kids in their early 20s).

Quaint and Classy

by Rachel on 09/15/2018
This apartment was just perfect for our needs: close to amazing food, right next to 6th street, and full of natural light.

Oasis in Austin

by Michelle on 09/15/2018
Wonderful property, great location, and very tasteful decor. Property is perfect for large family or multiple couples traveling together. Also, good for travelers with pets as a fenced yard is sometimes hard to find.

Perfect for our family of 3!

by Allison on 09/15/2018
We wanted a get a true Austin experience in a local neighborhood. The Clarksville Cottage was perfect. The property had everything we needed and the expansive deck & backyard was just a bonus. Two local playgrounds in walking distance, a great coffee shop, and local grocer. Super convenient to getting anywhere in city.

Amazing property! Highly recommend!

by Karen on 09/15/2018
This property is stunning- pictures don't do it justice. It was incredibly clean and impeccably well decorated. Every possible need was foreseen-from the kitchen being well stocked to bug spray for enjoying the awesome back yard. All the details were so well spelled out and the management company has a really well designed app that makes it so easy! We happened to meet the owners and they were absolutely lovely people. Also, the location is unbeatable! It is well worth every cent and we were very, very pleased with our expereince. Our only complaint was that we had to leave and go home!

Comfy place in great location

by Josh on 09/15/2018
We really enjoyed staying at The Nest. It was clean, functional, and quiet. The rooms are a good size and the beds are decent. The neighborhood is beautiful and we enjoyed sitting on the front porch with coffee in the mornings. Easy to get around by Lyft, Uber, or Taxi to all the hot spots in Austin. It is easy to walk to South Congress as well. The unit has a remodeled bathroom and lots of light throughout. The water pressure in the shower is a little restricted, but otherwise this was an excellent place to stay!

Great Weekend in Austin!

by Paula on 09/15/2018
This is the third time that we have used Emerson Guest Properties for our getaways to Austin. Brooke is always very easy to work with. The app for your phone is a real plus! The Mellow Yellow #2 was very nice and clean and reasonable priced. The location was also great. We needed a later check out and Brooke was able to accommodate us. We also brought our dog and she really enjoyed walks in this very nice neighborhood. We will continue to use Emerson for our home rental needs!

Charming and comfortable, great location...

by Susan on 09/15/2018
Keasby Cottage is a gem. It is a perfect location for anyone who wants to be close to all the action in and around Austin, yet return home to a quiet, relaxing comfortable place to kick back. You can get just about anywhere without having to get back onto the congested highways. The neighborhood is great for walking or biking to grocery stores and coffee shops.

Fabulous! In every way fabulous!

by Renee on 09/15/2018
The house is fully equipped and perfectly setup for a larger traveling group, there is even a bed and bath downstairs for senior travelers. The location is quiet and safe but just a short stroll to the shopping and dining on South Congress. The management company is attentive and thorough. Five star all the way!! No need to look futher, I will stay hear again when in Austin.

Lovely Place to Stay

by Ena on 09/15/2018
We had such a nice time coming home to this cute little place and getting warm after the storm rolled in. It is perfect for a couple looking to explore downtown Austin as it is a short walk to all the good stuff.

F1 Weekend

by John on 09/15/2018
We were very impressed with this condo. Clean, bright and well maintained. Great rooftop patio (but we could not use it due to the effects of Hurricane Patricia). Bed was comfortable and plenty of towels and toiletries available. Only suggestion is that you indicate in the rental info that there are lots of steps and a steep climb up hill to condo. It was fine for us, but may be a challenge to others. Whole Foods two blocks away and 6th street action just beyond that. Excellent location!!

Super Cute!

by Eva on 09/13/2018
This place is clean, cozy, and perfect for two couples that want to enjoy the sights of Austin. Love the location near Barton Springs and a quick Lyft downtown (thanks for the code!). The private backyard was a nice touch too but due to the rain we didn't fully enjoy it. The beds were comfy, the shower was great and they even have a washing machine and dryer which came in handy after we got wet in the rain!

Lovely little spot for exploring Austin!

by Susan on 09/13/2018
My husband used this little apartment as a home base as we visited Austin for a music festival. It is just a few blocks from 2 different bike share stations, a few blocks from some excellent food and an easy bike ride down the hill to the water. The space itself was well set up with a nice kitchen, and a quite bedroom. The management company was very helpful letting us have a late check-out on the day we flew home. The only thing I would have liked would was a toaster!


by Heather on 09/13/2018
The house was picture perfect. The management company made the trip go so smoothly.

Great stay in Austin

by Jim on 09/13/2018
Great location, clean and comfortable rental. Easy professional transaction. Definitely would recommend.

Perfect Home for our trip to Austin

by Randy on 09/13/2018
In Austin for a wedding, this house was perfect in every way! Clean, bright, nicely styled & appointed, great location. There was coffee, cream & sugar awaiting us, which was a nice touch that first morning. We loved the front porch swing, and the screened in porch on the back side. There is a cool photographic enlargement in the kitchen which I admired that I assume is the owner's work. Our family enjoyed staying in the little house out back, which gave them privacy. The AC unit back there was really fun, a piece of art that keeps you cool! Didn't meet the owners, but Emerson Guest Properties does an excellent job managing. The only small quibble is the lack of a dresser in either bedroom in the main house, which makes clothing storage a bit difficult for a long stay. We would definitely rent this space again!

You're There but You're Not...

by Roberta on 09/13/2018
Perfect location, you can walk to South Congress in minutes & be right there in the middle of all the action; then you walk back to Park Lane Modern & you're in a quiet, serene, tree covered neighborhood. We cooked in & went out. Kitchen has everything you need. The porch & lawn are a perfect place for hanging out. Everyone was very happy with the house.

Our cute little home away from home in Austin

by Christine on 09/13/2018
This was our first "home away" experience and I was elated when we stepped foot into this gem! So cute and had everything we needed! Very walkable to downtown and the hiking/biking trail. We highly recommend going this route vs a hotel room.

Quiet, Stylish and Convenient

by Phoebe on 09/13/2018
We had a perfect stay at this lovely house! Very private, quiet and easily accessible. The house was immaculate with stylish decor and very modern appliances. We were extremely comfortable and wanting for nothing. Plus the location couldn't be better, 6th st and Rainey are walkable plus we loved Cenote for coffee and breakfast which was only about 3 blocks! I wish we never had to leave!!

Our stay for a wedding weekend in Austin

by Christine on 09/13/2018
The home was great! Very clean, and fully stocked with everything we needed to make us feel at home---fresh, fluffy towels, coffee, and ample pillows and blankets. Brooke was so helpful and responsive prior to my stay, and the check-in/check-out process was a breeze. The location is perfect too!

Great location and nice yard

by Ruth on 09/13/2018
My husband and I needed a place to stay near downtown that would accommodate our mini schnauzers. This was a perfect location, it was well stocked, furnished comfortably and clean. The back yard was very nice, right by Shoal Creek and all its beautiful trees. The neighborhood was pleasant for walking the pups. A very nice place, we would highly recommend it.

Perfect location on South Congress!

by Kristine on 09/13/2018
Me and my husband stayed here to attend a wedding nearby at Hotel St. Cecilia. The condo is in a perfect location, literally walking distance from the hotel. Also very convenient to the shops and restaurants on South Congress. There is an HEB about a mile away as well, which was also helpful as we had a 6 month old. The condo is located on the third floor, so we definitely got a workout, but it was worth it for the location! The condo was clean and in great shape, we didn't need anything extra on our trip it was all included! Thanks again!

An Austin Gem -- and we've already reserved our return trip!

by Ben on 09/13/2018
We had a great long weekend stay at the Keasbey Cottage. We were in Austin to visit our son at UT, and the Keasbey Cottage was the perfect spot to both soak up some local Austin scene in Hyde Park, while still very close to campus, and the glory of the Austin food scene. The house was just as described. Very well laid out, maintained, and comfortable. We especially loved the screen-in back porch. We'll be back in September.

Awesome Spot in Austin

by Sally on 09/13/2018
We stayed in this cute and perfectly located apartment. It is a few blocks from 6th street and the path around town lake. The apartment is perfect! We wish we were still there!


by Pablo on 09/13/2018
My second experience with Emerson Properties. I have already recommended to several friends that travel often to Austin. This is the way to go! This property is well appointed, very clean and well situated. The APP is very convenient, too! My next family trip to Austin will be at this property!

Can't Wait to Return

by Dana on 09/13/2018
Everything was just right about this place, from the location to the cleanliness, from the amenities to the sense of being in a home away from home. We hope to return soon!

Austin Wedding Weekend

by Lynn on 09/13/2018
The house exceeded our expectations. Absolutely perfect. I wish we would have stayed a week vs. a three day weekend to really enjoy the property. Very handy to Congress and downtown. 🙂

Such a great visit!

by Beth on 09/13/2018
Brooke was communicative and accommodating. We requested a high chair and pack and play for our one year old, and it was waiting for us. The house is in a wonderful location, and it was easy for us to get around. The couch isn't so comfortable that you would want to sit and watch TV all day (but why would you want to do that anyway?!). It was a wonderful space for us to enjoy Austin!

Jonathan and Lulu's Emerson Rental Experience in Austin

by Lulu on 09/13/2018
This was my first experience doing an Airbnb and it was phenomenal to say the least. It was perfect for Jonathan and I's first getaway together. The rental was very clean and had all the essentials we needed. We felt as if we were home, most importantly. It had lots of clean towels, sheets, and even a washer and dryer. It was close to a lot of places and within walking distance to Rainy st (about 10 min. walking). If I ever make it back to Austin I will try to rent this place again. Very much recommend it to everyone. Thank you Christina for helping make our getaway an even better one. Two thumbs up without a doubt!

The Great Keasbey

by Rose on 09/13/2018
This was a great cottage. The location was perfect for our visit with our daughter and close to many restaurants like Quacks Bakery and Asti and within walking distance to a shopping center. Loved the screened-in porch.

Great Location

by Jackie on 09/13/2018
The property fit our needs perfectly. It was comfortable and we were able to walk almost everywhere.


by Wendy on 09/13/2018
This property was a perfect. It has easy access from Lamar and was clean and comfortable. The backyard was a nice surprise! I will highly recommend this anyone seeking a cool place near so many fun places.

Awesome Stay!

by Vanessa on 09/13/2018
My family was in town for a wedding and decided to rent a house so the babies would have room to crawl around. Park Lane was awesome!!! The house is beautiful and in a great location. We walked to restaurants to eat and the local coffee shops. I would definitely stay here again!

Lovely Stay

by Patrick on 09/13/2018
Very quiet end of the street cottage in great walking neighborhood. Our dogs loved it too.

Perfect Place to Stay

by Gail on 09/13/2018
This was a wonderful place to stay. The house was extremely comfortable, the landscaping was beautiful and accommodations could not have been nicer. Emerson Guest Properties was extremely helpful with any needs. The kitchen is well-equipped for even the most sophisticated chef. We will definitely stay here again!

Modern house in a great location

by Beverly on 09/13/2018
We had a great time here. Clean, modern and comfortable. The convenience of walking to cool shops, restaurants, and even a park was awesome. The place was like a second home. We really enjoyed this place.

Couldn't have been better

by Julia on 09/13/2018
Exactly as described. Perfect location, perfect decor, perfectly comfortable. Highly recommended.

Tranquil and Modern Oasis in Austin

by Christine on 09/13/2018
This rental unit is perfect for visitors who want to experience Austin like one of the locals. It is located within walking distance to great attractions and entertainment venues downtown, the eclectic East 6th Street, Rainey Street and much more. Emerson has taken great care to provide comfort, convenience, safety, and has anticipated the needs of virtually any type of traveler.

Love This Place

by Katheryn on 09/13/2018
This is a very clean, well stocked condo for 1-3 people. I have stayed there twice for several weeks. The rooftop deck is such a nice bonus! Management has been very responsive to correct any problems. Nice property in a great location to walk to all Austin has to offer.

Allendale delight

by Pamela on 09/13/2018
This gem is tucked away in a pleasantly quiet older neighborhood. The kitchen/dinning room is where my family and I hung out, admiring the well cared for backyard. The location is close to shops and restaurants.

Quiet Bungalow Hyde Park Austin TX

by Pamela on 09/13/2018
I made a visit to Austin to see my daughter. Initially, scheduled for my husband and I to visit. He bailed at the last minute. This place was quiet, offered a clean roomy environment. Mini fridge, coffee, tea, hotplate, dishes, utensils, sheets, towels, sun deck, and even a friendly neighborhood cat dropped by to inquire....All the creature comforts of Home with IKEA storage, modern colors and very affordable. I'd do it again all over. Hope I can get this place on my next visit.

Perfect for our Trip

by Penny on 09/13/2018
The location was perfect for our trip. Just a few minutes to downtown. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful.

Cozy Cottage

by Kathy on 09/13/2018
Lovely Cottage in quiet neighborhood with all the amenities you might need. It's within walking distance to stores and eating places. Will definitely stay at this property again!

Holiday getaway to Millard's Nook

by Ally on 09/13/2018
This was a great place to stay- easy to find, far enough out of the city that it felt like a real escape, but still a quick drive to many adorable Finger Lakes attractions- and the Carpenter Falls hike is almost right across the street. The home was clean, well equipped, and exactly as you would expect from the listing. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our weekend there and breakfast on the deck each morning.

Adorable and close to everything

by Rachael on 09/13/2018
The house was clean and adorable. It's close to everything, try uchi right across the street. Cute little side yard. We will be going back!

Great Location

by Scott on 09/13/2018
Perfect house for enjoying South Congress. Very spacious with a modern feel. Easy walk to many prime spots on South Congress and not a bad walk to South First. Management staff was very helpful.

Great place for a get away

by Lynne on 09/13/2018
We loved the location of this apt with access to parks and the city. It was very private and accessible. Our only complaint was the sofa in the living room was very uncomfortable.

Clean and Cozy

by Susan on 09/13/2018
The Nest was one of the best rentals we've experienced. This place was extremely clean and chock full of amenities unmatched by others. The house rules and instructions were clearly stated and easy to follow. This property was even better in person! Brooke was a good communicator and answered my questions promptly. We especially loved the balcony for its wonderful evening breeze. The location is central to all things Austin and the neighborhood was nice and quiet.

Family Vacation Dream

by Jean on 09/13/2018
Our extended family loved the house and the neighborhood. Being able to walk to get morning pastries and evening gelato proved to be a hit with all three generations.

Great Cottage in Great Location

by Mike on 09/13/2018
Very nice and clean cottage in great part of Austin. Close to everything and a park is located just up the street from here. Enjoyed our stay. Would stay there again and recommend.

Perfect location, perfect house

by Mike on 09/13/2018
Perfect location, just a couple blocks from South Congress, and the house couldn't have been better. Highly recommended!

Great place to stay for our Austin trip

by David on 09/13/2018
We had an event at the conference center in downtown and needed a place that was close but quiet enough to get the rest we needed. We arrived to a well organized very convenient rental. This timeless home was well decorated and comfortably furnished. Ease of access and additional features of the trip were enhanced by using the phone app. Definitely would stay here again.

Beautiful house, great location in Austin

by Susan on 09/13/2018
Loved everything about the house. Comfortable, cute decor, great A/C, perfect location. Easy to get in, great communication with property manager.

Quiet little 2 bedroom house

by Emily on 09/13/2018
Friends and I stayed at this cute little 2 bedroom house in a quiet neighborhood right off of S Lamar street. The house had everything that we could have asked for, tv with lots of cable channels, full kitchen, plenty of silverware, plates and cups, lots of towels and good AC. The location was ideal to get to multiple places around Austin.

Cozy, Quiet and Comfortable

by Gary on 09/13/2018
This was the perfect location and layout for our three adult group. Close to everything. The neighborhood is excellent. The property was very neat and clean, well supplied, comfortable and had everything we needed (actually more than we ever used!). The remodeled bath is clean and although a bit tight, it worked for us. We would definitely rent again and highly recommend to others!

Charmer in Amazing Neighborhood

by Cathleen on 09/13/2018
We loved this home. It is full of charm and we found it to be a peaceful retreat. It is very well stocked. It was nice just to sit and take in the quaint features of the home. It is also immaculate which we very much appreciated. Beds were very comfortable as well. Very pleasant property manager.

Wonderful Spot on a Very Special Lake

by Anna on 09/13/2018
We loved our stay at Appletree Point!!! It's an amazing little spot on our favorite lake and we enjoyed the house and the property very much! Everything was very clean and was just what we were looking for for our week vacation in the finger lakes. The cottage is small, but it gave us everything we needed -- two nice bedrooms (can sleep 6) and the living room and kitchen were very open and bright. We loved swimming in the lake every day and enjoying the sunsets every night! We hope to be back! It's a wonderful spot on a very special lake.

Enjoyed the Stay

by Fred on 09/13/2018
Fantastic location, within walking distance of the Boardwalk and neighborhood park with wading pool. Clean, comfortable accommodations. Looking forward to our next visit.


by Kenneth on 09/13/2018
We loved our stay at The Yellow Mellow 1. The place was great and had everything that we could have possibly wanted. The location couldn't have been better. We immediately felt comfortable. We hope that it will be available for our next visit.

Modern, comfortable update on a classic cottage

by Jacqueline on 09/13/2018
Really comfortable, well-appointed small home in a great neighborhood that was close to everything I love in Austin.

Perfect Spot in Austin

by Manisha on 09/13/2018
My family and j decided to take a couple days and hang in Austin. Little Josephine was the perfect spot for the 4 of us! it's 10-15 min drive to downtown and soo close to everything including Barton Springs and walking distance to shops and restaurants on Lamar. I would definitely stay here again.

Great Cozy Apartment

by Carey on 09/13/2018
Great location - especially with the redevelopment of South Lamar, if you are at all familiar with Austin. Coffee shops, Shake Shack and Alamo Drafthouse cinema a stroll away. Apartment was comfortable, spotless and well-equipped.

Comfort in a beautiful package

by Sabrina on 09/13/2018
Great kitchen and bath rooms. Comfortable furniture, great dest space. The listing of the house did not show the awesome shower in the guest house in the back yard. Home is completely updated with two full baths and one half bath. Loved the lighting and decor as well. I left with ideas to take back to my own house on design which was great. Also they have 4 bikes to ride for you in the garage. Quiet neighborhood and close to everything in Austin. We will stay again when in Austin.

Gorgeous apartment at a great value

by Jessica on 09/13/2018
Everything was perfect - very convenient location and a gorgeously decorated apartment.

Great place to stay while visiting Austin!

by Scott on 08/23/2018
Great place to stay! The furniture, artwork, and amenities were all very class. The place is set up like a guest house in someones backyard, although it still feels very private. The location is also perfect. It's just on the other side of the freeway from Rainey street (a popular bar & restaurant area). I was able to walk to Rainey in 8-10 minutes.

5 stars

by Jennifer on 08/23/2018
What a lovely place. I have worked downtown for 15 years including in an office two blocks from here. I live out of state now but still work downtown, so I commute. As a traveler this flat out beats hotels. (You can go outside!!) This neighborhood is IT. Safe, walkable, eatable, drinkable, runable, rowable you name it. All of my faves including ZTejas, Town Lake Trail, Whole Foods. Walking distance. Super simple as in not cluttered (right?), renovated/ modern stacked unit was perfect for privacy, interest, homey feeling (you left me coffee & the plates are gorgeous. )Thank your for all of the clean white stacked towels and the views. I booked my next stay here before I left my first one and property manager Brooke is GREAT. Highly recommended this to any other quiet respectful business travelers. Live like a local. 🙂

Cute comfy house

by Stephanie on 08/23/2018
The Mellow Yellow house was everything we needed. Very comfortable and well-located for our needs, and extremely clean. It was a shame we didn't get to use it more as we were just in and out to sleep. We will definitely consider staying there again in the future!

Great Stay in Austin!

by Jon on 08/23/2018
Quiet apartment in a prime location – just a 3-minute walk (careful – it's an exciting stretch along the shoulder of the road, no sidewalk) to Shake Shack and Alamo Drafthouse – was a great stay. Gated entry and parking lot. Huge bed and comfy couch, nice kitchen, washer/dryer in unit, if you're planning a longer stay. Also, pool!

3-month stay

by Simon on 08/23/2018
I lived in this house for 3 months and really enjoyed it. Large kitchen, nice dining room, beautiful back yard, quiet neighborhood. Overall it felt very homey.

Perfect apartment!

by Dawn on 08/23/2018
This was a perfect apartment for my (adult) children and me. Clean, modern, great internet, cable, fully-equipped kitchen. I felt safe walking back and forth to Alamo Drafthouse for movies at night. Restaurants and coffee shops 5 minutes walking distance away. Highly recommend.

Nice Place

by Paige on 08/23/2018
The rental was great, we slept 5 adults all comfortably. We stayed here for ACL and this place is within walking distance. We also made a few longer walks into downtown and went for jogs through the neighborhood. Furnishings are nice and modern. Would definitely stay again!

Convenient, comfortable "Old Austin"

by Alden on 08/23/2018
My wife and I live in Austin and are HomeAway owners ourselves. We stayed here with our daughter and 10 month old granddaughter (who live in Washington DC, and our son and his girlfriend (who live in Denver) for four nights in October after we had already rented out our own home and then learned of our children's plans to come to town for several October weddings. For my wife and me, it was a trip down memory lane to stay in a well appointed older home in one of Austin's oldest neighborhoods ... it took us back to our first home. Our kids loved the mix of old and new in the house and the detached guest house, and also the super convenient location.
The property management company was great, and went above and beyond the call of duty when we had a change of plans and needed to extend our stay to include an additional night.
If the need ever again arises, we and/or our kids will stay here again.

ACL Stay

by David on 08/23/2018
Very good and very comfy place ti stay. A lot of places tongo nearby, zilker park is about a 50 minute walk away. Easy communication with Emerson Guest Properties.

SUPER comfortable beds

by Jodi on 08/23/2018
I slept like a baby here. Great location, very walkable. The kitchen is pretty and easy to work in. Nice big TV in the living room for winding down at night.

Formula 1 Getaway

by Rene on 08/23/2018
We came into town as first timers to Austin for the F1. The rental was clean and basic for our needs. The bed was SO comfortable and the sheets were so soft. In fact, I'd like to know where they came from so I can get some. The rental had everything. In the kitchen, there was a fridge, glassware and flatware, a microwave, and hotplate. The bathroom had nice big towels, soap and shampoo, and sunscreen. The futon was comfortable for the 3rd person in our group. It was easy to check-in with the app.

The location for this rental was great. Just a short ride to downtown and other areas of interest. The neighborhood is quaint and quiet, but has a lot of character.

Great house!

by Jane on 08/23/2018
Super clean and very well stocked! Layout worked well for our family who was in town for a wedding. Location was also good for getting around Austin. Will definitely stay here again when visiting the area!


by Alex on 08/23/2018
Wonderful house, just as advertised. The yard was even better than advertised, well kept, large, and fenced. Great weekend!

Very Nice Place To Stay

by Deborah on 08/23/2018
This property was great to stay in for a couple of days in Austin. It was clean and had everything we needed including soap, shampoo, conditioner, iron, ironing board. Many items included that I have seen missing from other VRBO properties. We needed a pack and play and high chair for our baby that weren't there when we arrived, but I called Brooke and one was delivered right away. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!

Great Austin Home

by Stephen on 08/23/2018
The house was fantastic! The three bedrooms and three bathrooms gave each guest plenty of space. Beds were very comfortable. The decorations were very cool and living room provided comfortable space to be together. Easy location to get anywhere. Our friends in nearby hotels were jealous.

Perfect place in a great location!

by Erin on 08/23/2018
This place was perfect! Safe location close to South Congress, fantastic condition true to images, and well managed by Brooke. Thanks for a great stay!

Great property and perfect location

by Sara on 08/23/2018
The Josephine Casita is perfect for an Austin getaway. The location is so pleasant, with easy access to running trails and Barton Springs, as well as downtown and the restaurants on south Lamar. The house itself is spacious with a large enclosed backyard; nicely decorated and comfortable. The property owner was very helpful and responsive. I would definitely stay here again.

Great Place Great Location

by Marcus on 08/23/2018
Very relaxing. The house came with everything we needed to enjoy the stay. The location could not have been better!

Great place to stay!

by Shari on 08/23/2018
Excellent location - close to downtown but tucked away and quiet. The condo was clean, well-maintained and exactly as described. They responded immediately to the request and their follow up was excellent. They even dropped off extra coffee for our stay. We would definitely return and recommend this place without hesitation.

Best Small Place in Austin

by Greg on 08/23/2018
One of my favorite AirBnB finds and places to stay in Austin. Great location, easy parking, clean, modern and so close to downtown without being in downtown.

Great Cottage. Great Location.

by Mike on 08/23/2018
Stayed here a few times.... always a good trip. Clean, updated and well maintained cottage close to everything and a park to walk our dogs. Highly recommend.

Weekend Vacation

by Art on 08/23/2018
This property was located within walking distance of the SoCo district and a great spot off of South Congress Street. The property was updated and clean with all the amenities necessary for a weekend getaway. We would definitely stay Hera again on our next trip to Austin.

Great for long term stay!

by Allison on 08/23/2018
We just moved to Austin from Houston and our new house wasn't ready quite yet, so we stayed at Mellow Yellow for 3 weeks with our 1 year old. It was a great place for us to stay! The neighborhood was walkable and there were lots of restaurants and shopping close by. I don't think I drove more than 10 minutes to get anywhere. It was also well equipped with pretty much everything we needed! Brooke provided a high chair, pack n play and sheets, and even baby shampoo! It was also great to have a yard to let our dog out, and I didn't have to worry about her escaping because it was well fenced in. Only down side is that if you have noisy neighbors next door you can hear them quite well. But we were there for 3 weeks, so we had a variety of neighbors! Overall, we were really pleased with our time there and will for sure recommend it to anyone who needs a great place to stay.

Greenlawn Peace

by Beth on 08/23/2018
Ideal location for us to attend family Christmas activities without traffic tie-ups on major highways. Close to parks and HEB. Very quiet neighborhood. Excellent kitchen.

Exactly as Promised

by Jody on 08/23/2018
Great house. Professionally managed. Love the bedroom in the back!

Austin, TX New Years Getaway

by Rebecca on 08/23/2018
The East Side Tree House is exactly as described. The location was perfect for all the activities we had planned. We were a quick walk or bike ride away from absolutely everything we needed. The room itself was very clean and welcoming, a little oasis in our home away from home. Prior to our visit, the owner provided great suggestions of where to dine and drink. There was also a booklet in our room with many suggestions of how to spend our time in Austin. Definitely grab a quick coffee/pastry at Cuvee Coffee Bar during your stay. Also, eat as many breakfast tacos from as many food trucks as your stomach can handle!

Loved It

by Brooke on 08/22/2018
Quiet, perfect location, super comfy bed, cute deck, great little spot. Highly recommend to anyone needing a private little getaway. Enjoyed the coffee they provided. Would stay again!

Christmas at Urban Homestead

by Pam on 08/22/2018
Loved this property. It provided a home atmosphere for us to Celebrate Christmas with our family. Our son lives and works in Austin and was not able to come home for the holidays so we brought Christmas to Austin. The location was awesome. We will definitely stay here again.

Great stay at Little Josephine

by Katheryn on 08/22/2018
Enjoyed our visit thiroughly! We had plenty of room for our family to visit at Christmas time. The kitchen was well stocked although we could have used more bowls and the nonstick pans were NOT nonstick and we're difficult to clean. My only other recommendation would be to add more stones around the stepping stone in the walkway so they are more even and less of a turned ankle hazard. Other than that the place was great and had everything we needed. Thanks!

Austin Visit

by Diane on 08/22/2018
It was great! The unit has everything you need in a beautiful setting.

Great Vacation Home

by Kristen on 08/22/2018
We loved our Airbnb home that was rented through Emerson Guest Properties! The location, layout, and amenities were exactly as described. The property was clean and well-maintained. I would highly recommend this property to friends/family - in fact, I already have!

Beautiful Cozy Casita

by Carolina on 08/22/2018
Great location very close to downtown Austin. Pretty, cozy, equiped kitchen, clean, wifi, everything you need to feel comfy while on vacation.

Beautiful Home/Great Location

by Sonia on 08/22/2018
We stayed here for a work family trip. The house was close to everything and was very comfortable. I'd stay again!

Great home!

by Rebecca on 08/22/2018
We had such a great stay here. We were all so impressed how clean, tidy, and stylish the home is. We were so comfortable there, and Brooke was so hospitable and accommodating. Would definitely stay again.


by Suzy on 08/22/2018
Casa de Miguel was exactly the right place for our family while staying in Austin for our sons wedding! Great house, location!

Fantastic Experience

by Bill on 08/22/2018
The space was everything I could have asked for. It was clean, efficient and fully functional. The neighborhood is great with interesting places to visit well within walking distance.

Brentwood Beauty

by Paula on 08/22/2018
I really loved this home. Stylish and clean. Very functional. And spacious.
A very nice feeling to be away from my messy cluttered home and still have everything I needed.

Very cute condo in a great neighborhood

by Katherine on 08/22/2018
Very cute condo in a great neighborhood. The space itself is wonderful -- comfortable bed and couch, great water pressure, and a fully equipped kitchen. There is also a nice pool and patio area.
The location is great. We took RideAustin to locations downtown and beyond to the north, but we walked about 25 minutes to 1st Street (LENOIR, Greetings from Austin mural, Sway, Torchy's and Gordough's food trucks). There are also great places right around the corner from the condo (Odd Duck, Luke's food truck, Juice Society, Delicious, Alamo Drafthouse theater, and Sanctuary Yoga). We got groceries from Thoms Market down the street. We were also able to walk to several parks (Butler, Zilker, Barton Springs Pool).
Brooke, the property manager, was very easy to work with. She stayed in contact with us as needed and was very accommodating, allowing us to check-in early.

Exactly as expected

by John on 08/22/2018
I reserved the Hyde Park Studio for nights I had to be in Austin to sit for the Texas bar exam. This studio was absolutely perfect and completely supportive of my needs and reason for being in Austin. You can see the place is clean and pleasing; it was also quiet, easily accessible (both from my car parking and from the freeway), comfortable, and had excellent WiFi coverage and speed. I wanted for nothing with this property and would look to it first for any future trips to Austin. Aside from zero complaints, I can't think of one way this experience could have been improved.

LOVE LOVE this house and location!!!

by Jennifer on 08/22/2018
I rented this house for 8 nights with my husband and 2.5 year old because it's conveniently located to shopping, food, and groceries - all within walking distance. The house was fully stocked with all the necessities: bath essentials, paper towels, toilet paper, coffee/creamer/sugar, bags, extra blankets, and etc. Most places I've rented very seldom supply you with all of that, so that was a PLUS. Whoever cleaned the house upon our arrival did a great job because it was spotless when we arrived and it made me feel at ease, especially traveling with a toddler who likes to be all over the place. Another added bonus was the parking permits. Over the weekend, we had 2 other families with children stay with us, and they've all enjoyed it very much. Online mentioned there was only 1 parking permit if needed to park on the street, but fortunately there was a total of 3, which allowed our guests to be able to park on the street close by to the house. The patio area, the balconies, and overall house was very kid friendly (aside from the stairs). My 2.5 year old son enjoyed nightly strolls down to south congress for Amy's ice cream, and tells me he wants to "go back to live in the Austin house." I would definitely come back here again!

It Was Perfect

by Karen on 08/22/2018
We were in Austin for our daughter's wedding and wanted a home base for the week; Casa de Miguel was perfect! When we walked in that first evening, we knew we had made a great choice. The floor plan, decor... everything was extremely comfortable and welcoming. As we went through our week leading up to the big day, the location was extremely convenient to all our events. We had cocktails at Eberly, pizza at ABGB, hamburgers at Hopdoddy, catering from Central Market, a lovely dinner at The Blue Dahlia, and a beautiful wedding at Mercury Hall! It was truly a wonderfully memorable week!!!

Very Pleasant Stay

by Caroline on 08/22/2018
We found the place to be very accommodating and comfortable. Our chocolate Lab took to it right away, and enjoyed his walks through the neighborhood

Love this cottage!

by Amy on 08/22/2018
I lived in Clarksville for 17 years, so when I travel back to Austin, I want to stay in MY hood. This cottage made me feel at home. It is beautifully appointed and perfectly located. I LOVED reading on the back screened in porch. Part of my vacation was enjoying this lovely place. It is now my Austin landing pad.

Good Stay

by Adena on 08/22/2018
Property was clean, efficient, private and had every basic need for a comfortable stay. The mobile app had all the information for check in, check out and easy to use. We had a car so it was easy to get to downtown and other areas of Austin but would have been challenging without one. This studio fit our needs perfectly and well worth the reasonable cost.

Home Away From Home

by Nancy on 08/22/2018
My husband and I decided to go south for the month of February and chose Austin. The Urban Homestead could not have been a better pick for the value and location. We were able to have family and friends visit. The ensuite in the back of the house was perfect for the couples who visited. The minimalist aspects of the house made maintaining a clean house throughout the month so easy. Emerson Guest Properties were very good and responded to questions and needs. The neighborhood was quiet. The neighbors were friendly. Many places close to the house were great (Lenoir, Summer Moon Coffee, Seventh Flag Coffee, Once Over Coffee, Boulder Creek Cafe, Elizabeth Cafe, ABGB). Walking to Congress/Downtown was 1.5 miles but an enjoyable walk. Everyone who came to the house loved it.

Great place to stay when visiting Austin!

by Laura on 08/22/2018
The Park Lane Modern is a great place to stay while visiting Austin. It's close to everything - SoCo, downtown, the water. You can't beat the location and you can't beat the actual house! It's beautifully furnished and has everything you'll need.

Great Location

by Brendan on 08/22/2018
Great location, close proximity to downtown. Property was clean and ready on arrival. Property manager was very responsive. We would definitely stay again.

Just Right

by Gary on 08/22/2018
The apt was well maintained. Very good bathroom and kitchen (with washer/dryer) facilities. The apartment was just right for our needs and we loved the neighborhood. Close to neat restaurants and bars and ladybird lake. We found it was an easy walk to downtown .
Do you want to sell the property? I'd be interested.

Great SOCO Condo

by Jay on 08/22/2018
Nice condo within walking distance of SOCO in Austin. The condo had all of the necessities and was in a quiet neighborhood.

Rental that has it all!

by Diane on 08/22/2018
This rental has location, quiet-beautiful neighborhood and well equipped-clean accommodations. The rental was easy to find and access. We walked or biked to all the areas of interest to us.


by Joshua on 08/22/2018
Easily the best spot in Austin. An immensely comfortable property in a lovely part of town. No complaints whatsoever. 10/10

Vacation in my home city

by Jackson on 08/22/2018
My friends and I live all around the greater Austin area, and needed a place to stay closer to town for South by Southwest for work and vacationing reasons. Because we were so busy with the festival we spent only small amounts of time at the Mellow Yellow, but enjoyed every second. The style of the house felt like home to us right away. Simple, clean and so well equipped. We had access to absolutely everything we needed to thoroughly enjoy our stay. I was very happy to find multiple types of coffee and tea on hand. As well as loads of clean linens, utensils and cups. Fast WiFi and cable TV were a huge bonus that we took advantage of very briefly. I feel very lucky we had great neighbors! Absolutely no noise complaints on either end,although the walls are so solid I don't think that could even be a problem. One more awesome addition, is that there are two bus stops very close to the house
We all took full advantage of this to save a lot of money on transportation.

Thanks you guys!! We loved staying here!

Wonderful Stay

by Jeff on 08/22/2018
The space is really nice and as described. Check in and out was easy. Everything was VERY clean which I appreciate. We had some issues with the AC during out stay and the owner was incredibly responsive and helpful. Would definitely stay again

Excellent place to stay

by Jason on 08/22/2018
We went to Austin for a golf trip with four friends total and the place was great. Clean, close to restaurants, and great communication by the company.

Sweet, super-clean, spot in a perfect location

by Hunter on 08/22/2018
Loved our stay here. Really nice set up. Could walk downtown and to key east side locations. Very comfortable.

Charming Place to Stay

by Gary on 08/22/2018
The house was ideally located close to Lamar, many great restaurants, and the river. The neighborhood was very quiet and peaceful. The house was very clean and well-kept. The only negative was the mattress was a little too soft.

Long Weekend in Austin

by Susan on 08/22/2018
Great location on a quiet street close to where our daughter lives. There were comfortable beds and plenty of towels, The windows opened and the air conditioning worked. There's enough space for people to move around comfortably. We would stay there again.

I'm Batty for Austin!

by Cynthia on 08/22/2018
Great spot for the botanical garden, and Umlauf sculpture garden, museums, and Moody Theater for Dave Chappelle! Thanks so much for the wonderful weirdness of Austin!

The Perfect Spot to Explore Austin

by Elizabeth on 08/22/2018
We took a week long trip to Austin to explore the city and visit with friends. The house was perfectly located for all our needs. Being close to Barton Springs and Zilker Park was fabulous and we were able to navigate to downtown easily. Restaurants nearby were wonderful. We would definitely stay here again!

So wonderful for our little family!

by Maryjoy on 08/22/2018
We stayed for 2 nights over our Spring Break in the wonderful Zilker neighborhood. We enjoyed our walks to Zilker Park, Shady Grove restaurant and the many, many food trucks in the area. The space was clean and comfortable. Communication was very quick and easy. I would highly recommend staying here!

Super cute and near everything

by Michelle on 08/22/2018
Loved this cute little apartment. Nice and clean and convenient to everything. We walked all over. Eclectic neighborhood. Property company was very quick to respond to a minor issue and resolved it. They were very helpful and nice!

Comfortable stay for family with toddler

by Kate on 08/22/2018
We had a great experience. They were kind enough to let us check in a bit early and also provided us with a comfortable and clean pack and play and high chair for our 1 1/2 year old. The whole experience was fantastic. Great bed, great shower, great location. Clean and well stocked with whatever you need to cook at home (but we ended up eating at a lot of places within walking distance). Would highly recommend to families with a small child.

Austin for Spring Break

by Melissa on 08/22/2018
We had a lovely experience, we are from Austin so it was fun to come back and visit and see the city from a different perspective.

Perfect Spot In the Heart of Texas

by Brittany on 08/22/2018
Loved everything about this quaint little house! It was in the perfect location - quiet, well kept neighborhood within walking distance to some great little restaurants and shops. Quick drive into downtown or to the river! The house was stocked with everything you would need for a weekend stay & had plenty of rooms for a decent size group. The host is extremely responsive and the app.....gosh how helpful is that!? We will definitely be back!

Perfect Rental For Us

by Linda on 08/22/2018
This cottage was a perfect rental for us. We were in town visiting my son and prefer not to stay in a hotel. The location is great and the neighborhood quiet. The cottage was clean and had all the necessities. We had a problem with the lockbox but a quick call to Emerson and the problem was resolved. There was a screened porch and a small deck in the back. We would stay here again.

Great Location, Wonderful Condo

by Aaron on 08/22/2018
My wife and I had a wonderful time in Austin. Greatly because of the great location this condo is in. Walking distance to many great restaurants, the river and a scenic walk to downtown if your up to it. The condo was very quite and the owner was able to respond via email to our questions almost immediately when we first got there.

Austin April Trip

by John on 08/22/2018
This was a trip arranged for my colleague John while he was in Austin on business. Good access to downtown and a homey environment.

Perfect home away from home!

by Rachael on 08/22/2018
We had a group of 5 girls here, and could have definitely had 6 with a lot of space. This house and location were both perfect for a weekend getaway! The back porch was great for hanging out at all times of the day (at night the lights were so pretty!), and very private, and the house is a 10 minute walk to Rainey Street or a 15 minute walk to the river. It was super clean, and had everything we needed. I would definitely come back.

Sweet Spot

by Mary Helen on 08/22/2018
Loved this sweet little home. Very comfortable with a quick walk to great restaurants.

Very cute rental!

by Jessica on 08/22/2018
This rental was in the perfect location for everything that we wanted to do on our weekend stay. It was a short 15 minute drive to the city and also a short 15 to 20 minute drive to hiking locations. The neighborhood it is located in felt very safe and it was very beautiful. Would gladly like to stay again if we were to visit Austin in the future! Thank you for having us!

The most Awesome Austin place to stay!

by Tobie on 08/22/2018
I chose this cozy cottage because it was close to my daughter's wedding venue. But fell inlove with its charm. It has that funky artsy vibe Austin is famous for but with all the modern conveniences. Close to Everywhere and our host was accommodating and responsive. You cannot go wrong with this chill pad, my only regret was the rain kept us from using the bikes.

Loved it! Comfy & great location

by Danee on 08/22/2018
Highly recommend this place for a couple, or four people. It's in a great location - short walk to Barton Springs and Zilker Park, and just across the road from a fantastic Japanese restaurant called Uchi. The house was very clean, and the kitchen was well equipped. Comfy beds and pillows too!

perfect antidote to convention hotels

by Phil on 08/22/2018
When I travel it's usually for a work-related technology convention and it was so nice to have a clean, quiet studio apartment for a few days instead of the usual noisy, cramped convention hotel room. Street parking, walkable neighborhood, nice amenities. Great stay overall.

Amazing House, Location, and Experience!

by Nick on 08/22/2018
The entire process from booking through our departure was easy. The property manager was very friendly and always quick to respond. The pictures and description do not do the house justice. It extremely well kept, beautiful, full of character, and modern. Each room had its own balcony and bath. Then location puts you right in the heart of South Congress. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Great location!

by Carolyn on 08/22/2018
The Nest was a perfect spot from which to explore Austin--close to several bus lines and the SoCo music venues. My only complaint is with Emerson Guest Properties. Two e-mails and two phone calls with questions produced NO response. I will not rent a property managed by them again. Plus, cleaners had missed some obvious spots in the kitchen (the counter), and the person who was checking the state of the property before check-in didn't arrive until after the check-in time. We had to clean up.

Fun times in Austin

by Allison on 08/22/2018
Great location. Across the street from bars, taco truck and la barbeque. Place was clean and affordable. Two blocks away from austin b-cycle station and 5 min drive from Austin Convention Center/downtown. I would stay here again!

Perfect in every way!

by Janet on 08/22/2018
This charming cottage is located in one of the most vibrant and convenient neighborhoods in Austin. The cottage itself is beautifully decorated, was sparkling clean, and the screened in porch is my new happy place. I could not find the iron, and the blow dryer overheated, and management immediately delivered replacements. I stayed for nine nights on a business trip, and was sad to leave.

Weekend with friends

by Rebecca on 08/22/2018
Perfect spot and house for the weekend! The backyard was great and house had everything that was needed. Would recommend for future guests!

Great little place...close to all the things I love

by Wachelle on 08/22/2018
I wanted a place that was close to Lamar and close to the Food & Wine Festival. This was it.

Clean, good quality fixtures/appliances, decorated cute...

For four adults it was tight with one bathroom.
No tvs in the bedrooms.

Wonderful house was even more spectacular than the pictures!

by Pierre on 08/22/2018
Furnish in great style. Location provides easy accessibility to downtown. All appliances were top of line and worked well. Outdoor patio were very nice

East 2nd Main House

by Elizabeth on 08/22/2018
We had an amazing experience in the house. It was clean and beautifully kept and very close to downtown/Rainey Street. Brooke from Emerson Guest Properties was very responsive with all our requests and was even able to accommodate a last minute late check out due to our delayed flight. I couldn't have asked for a better stay and would definitely use Emerson again.

Great place!

by Mary on 08/22/2018
Brooke's place was great! We arrived at 9pm at night and it was easy to let ourselves in using the code she sent in advance. The place was impeccably clean and well set up. We were two couples in town for a wedding and it worked out just great for this - cheaper than staying in hotel rooms and much nicer. There are some great bars and restaurants within walking distance (try House Wine!). Would just recommend to anyone to not to leave the door open. There was a neighborhood cat wandering around who snuck in to have a look inside to two minutes before she was put outside.

East Side Bungalow

by Tamara on 08/22/2018
Very clean, updated spacious home. Very convenient location for downtown Austin activities. Best stocked rental property I have ever stayed in- toiletries, paper products, basic kitchen cooking items. There was only a French press for coffee so we inquired about a coffee maker as we drink Lots of coffee and property management delivered one immediately. Highly recommend this home.

A Great Getaway

by Stephanie on 08/22/2018
This was the perfect house for a long weekend getaway for a group of five ladies. The location was ideal for exploring Austin, and we fell in love with the neighborhood of South Austin. Having three bedrooms and three bathrooms was optimal, plus there was plenty of great communal space indoors and outdoors. The house was very clean and well appointed and we all loved the fun furnishings. The beds were all super comfortable and we appreciated the soft linens and towels in the bathrooms. We did not have a car and were able to walk all over the city with no problems. We would all certainly recommend Casa de Miguel and would love to stay there again. Austin is an amazing city and Casa de Miguel helped to make our trip even better.

There were many great restaurants and shops within walking distance of the home, including G's Dynamite Deli, Boudin Creek Cafe, and Mana Culture Jewelry and Fashion. We also really loved Maudie's for great Tex Mex food. Rainey Street was so much fun we went twice! Zilker Park is also a short walk away from the house and definitely worth a visit.

Great spot for a weekend in Austin!

by Terri on 08/22/2018
Little Josephine was a perfect location for all of our Austin activities. We were a family celebrating out a 21st birthday and the house met our needs very well.

It was in a very cute/cool neighborhood with easy walking access to the Little Bird Lake and many restaurants and activities. We walked along the lake path, walked to Barton Springs and restaurants on Barton Springs Rd. It was a quick drive to a The Lone Star water sports rental location and South Congress (both which could have been walked to.)

The house is very clean and furnished with nice, good condition IKEA furniture and fixtures which were fine. Beds were reasonably comfortable and the sofa fit 2 young adults comfortably. We didn't cook, so I can't comment on cooking supplies but we used cups/bowls/glasses. There are barely enough for 6 so had to be washed before the dishwasher was full so it would be nice to have a few more. Some counter space or shelving in the bathroom would have been helpful, but overall it was perfect and we would return.

Centrally Located Apartment

by Arnie on 08/22/2018
We stayed at the Charmer for two nights, and would recommend it to anyone visiting Austin. It was spotless, firm mattresses, and a fully equipped kitchen. Check-in/out procedures were well-explained and simple. The only downside is that the living room could have used one comfortable-the position of the two-person sofa made it difficult for two people to watch the tv.

Great Vacay

by Loren on 08/22/2018
We stayed here for UT graduation weekend and it was perfect! The location was so convenient to get to the festivities, restaurants and stores. The house was well stocked with everything we needed. We will definitely stay here again!

Austin for Graduation

by Patricia on 08/22/2018
The house is excellent, clean and in an excellent location. The kitchen is large and has an open concept and has direct access to the front yard. The rooms arr very good size and the beds very comfortable.

The Perfect Getaway

by Brooke on 08/22/2018
We recently stayed in the Brentwood Bungalow for a bachelorette trip. It was very spacious and I'm a good location. We were able to get to downtown in about 15 minutes. The house was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. It was 8 girls and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here!

Awesome time in Austin!

by Christopher on 08/22/2018
The house was great. This was our 1st stay w/ABNB and we will definitely use again. Austin is such a great city and this location is close to everything. Beautiful home! So comfortable. We had a great stay!

Perfect, comfortable, and secure

by Christopher on 08/22/2018
Our experience was smooth and easy. Cristina and Brooke looked after us, and everything was pretty clear. Communications were prompt and helpful. Amy even helped us figure out the tv, when she popped in to drop off some supplies, and gave us some great advice about Austin in general.

We were here for NI Week 2017, so a brisk 10 minute walk was all it took for us to "commute" to our conference.

The house was very spacious, and in excellent condition. They have done a great job with the place, and everything about the house was 1st class!

We spent most of our time in Downtown Austin, but when we were here, it was more of homely place to come back to rather than a plain hotel.

Thanks again. Will definitely consider this place again for future conferences!

Family event

by Billie on 08/22/2018
Excellent facilities; just as advertised. Crib was provided on request.

"C" is for Comfortable

by Jill on 08/22/2018
We enjoyed everything about this bungalow in Clarksville! The location is close to campus. It is very comfortable and quiet in a neighborhood setting. The interior of the cottage is very clean, well maintained and nicely decorated with comfortable, yet modern furnishings. We will definitely stay here again.

A wonderful stay!

by Natalie on 08/22/2018
We had a fabulous stay. This was a great location and beautiful home. Thank you!

Park Lane Modern for a Family of 5

by Jeffrey on 08/22/2018
We stayed three nights in Park Lane and enjoyed it very much. My wife attended a conference at the JW Marriot on 2nd and Congress. With three teenage children we did not want to be confined in a hotel room. The Park Land is about 10 minutes from the Marriot even in traffic. It was simple to drop her off and pick her up. We were able to have privacy and plenty of bathroom space. The house is comfortable and well appointed. The kitchen is great. We had no issues with anything. South Congress restaurants and shops are a five minute walk away. I would highly recommend walking to SoCo. Parking along Congress looked like a challenge at best.

If I had to find a negative it would be that the stairs are steep and made from dark wood. They do blend in to each other and make it difficult to see the next step especially in the dark. The solution to this is to turn the lights on over the stairs, but I would not recommend allowing small children to use the stairs unaccompanied. My teens had no problems.

One final complaint that has nothing directly to do with the house: the driveway is very steep and my car scraped every time I pulled in. That said, it was only scraping on a plastic air dam and not any body parts, so no harm done. Just an unpleasant sound.

On the subject of sound, this house is in a very quiet neighborhood. As close as it is to SoCo you can't hear anything from the bedrooms. Very quiet and restful.

Finally, the house was very clean. My kids enjoyed the board games and the furniture is in excellent condition.

Overall this house is great and I would stay there again.

Girl's Weekend Getaway

by Michelle on 08/22/2018
Casa de Miguel is just aborable. The inside is furnished beautifully and tastefully. The bedrooms were the perfect size to accommodate a party of six ladies. The beds were so comfortable. We loved the attention to detail in each room of the house. Everything was spotless. The house is located in a great part of Austin, with easy access to all areas of town. We will definitely stay here the next time we are in Austin.

Charming Hyde Park Cottage

by Jenny on 08/22/2018
Such a cute, charming cottage in a very quiet, family-friendly neighborhood. Within walking distance to several neighborhood restaurants and bars, easily bikeable and RideAustin will take you downtown or 6th Street for under $15. All that and it's on a secluded part of the street with a very private backyard with an awesome screened-in porch! We hung out there most of the time, playing games and even eating pizza out there. Know that there is a lot of trees, bushes and bamboo making it very shady and breezy, but also can be mosquito-prone. The house itself is super cute with comfortable beds and furniture, although no dining table (no biggie as we ate on the porch!). The house is well-stocked with everything one might need, though I would suggest bringing mosquito repellent or citronella candle or something! We would stay here again in a heartbeat! Oh! And Brooke was very communicative prior to our arrival and I have no doubt would have attended to any needs very quickly and efficiently should we have needed.

Wonderful, quiet location

by Deborah on 08/22/2018
The Greenlawn is a wonderful and cozy rental, on a quiet street with a beautiful back yard, convenient to many restaurants, activities, shopping etc. You can be south, north or downtown, in 5-15 minutes There is more than everything you could possibly need here, as it is the owner's home. Brooke and Emerson Guest Properties cannot be beat. She had everything there, I had requested, and is so easy and efficient to work with. All of her properties are top notch!!

Overall Great!

by Bethany on 08/22/2018
The house provided a comfortable, clean and safe place for my bridal party. The location was perfectly placed near restaurants and access to major roads.

Great location/great time!

by Margaret on 08/22/2018
We loved staying at this location with so many great restaurants nearby. We especially enjoyed Odd Duck with a group of seven locals and out of towners--we got to taste nearly everything! We also decided to walk home from downtown one night and it was a great couple miles! It was a beautiful walk along the river. We had a minor emergency with a blocked toilet but someone came by with a plunger within a couple hours. Fabulous place to stay!


by Samantha on 08/22/2018
The Nest is a very cute property, very quiet, decorated with good taste and well equipped. , The neighborhood is lovely, and very close to south congress area. I got clear instructions to access and the property manager was responsive and very nice.
I'm definitely returning for my next stay.

Perfect Balance

by Elaine on 08/22/2018
Zilker Oasis was an oasis indeed! Great central location but quiet. Lovely pool and apartment amenities. Very clean and comfortable. The lock system was a bit tricky but created convenient safety w/o worrying about keys. Owners were very responsive.

Great Stay!

by Ross on 08/22/2018
Great space, well lit, comfortable bed, easy access to the city

Treehouse of my dreams

by Ericka on 08/22/2018
Amazing location, the apartment was super adorable, and the owner was very thoughtful with the amenities book. 

Great Vibe and Location

by Luke on 08/10/2018
Really enjoyed our stay here. It was very close to everywhere that we wanted to visit and had a perfect vibe. Property was exactly as advertised and was very well maintained. Record player was the touch that took it from great to awesome.

Austin Getaway

by Michelle on 08/10/2018
My husband and I spent a week in Austin (kid free!!) after her returned from his 10th deployment. Our life is busy, unpredictable, and hectic, and we needed the time together.

The guest house is AMAZING! It was so nice. Sometimes people upgrade their houses and put their old stuff in the rental - not the case here! Everything was upgraded and beautiful. Stainless steel, tile backsplash, amazing shower. It was cozy and wonderful.

They had shampoo, conditioner, soap, and all sorts of other toiletries for you to use. They've really thought of everything.

The location is one of those questionable ones that they are gentrifying, so there were some things that were kind of like, "Ummm..." But there's an alarm in the guest house and they have off-street parking in the driveway for guests. There's also cameras on the porch of the main house, right by the guest parking. We felt secure enough. It is right next to the highway, so it's kind of noisy. I downloaded a sound app on my phone and we used that at night.

Overall, it was a wonderful trip and we would definitely stay there again!

Cool, Eclectic Farmhouse

by Shay on 08/10/2018
My family and I had a great stay at The Urban Homestead in South Austin! It was a fabulous place for us to crash each night after having fun in Austin. Good, central location, very clean and stocked with every necessity,and impeccably renovated and decorated! Being able to stay in a farmhouse built in 1918 in a residential neighborhood made us feel like residents, not tourists, which is exactly the way we like it! We loved the farmhouse so much we dreamed of living in it.

Great time/location in Austin

by Brent on 08/10/2018
The house we stayed in was filled with amenities that you just wouldn't get if you stayed in a hotel. Also, the location is prime! In a quiet neighborhood literally a few blocks away from a lot of awesome Austin action...
would definitely stay again and/or suggest to others!

Cute, Cozy Getaway!

by Tara on 08/10/2018
We had a very positive experience with our stay. All of the necessary amenities were available to us; I especially appreciated lots of bath towels! We did minimal cooking, but there seemed to be all of the kitchen necessities available as well. I loved being able to walk to get coffee in the morning! We had our 2 small children with us, and we were able to fit a pack n play in the guest bedroom as well as a kids air mattress in the master bedroom, so it was really the perfect fit for us. We would certainly stay here again for future trips to Austin!

Cutest House on the Block

by Rachael on 08/10/2018
This home was AMAZING!! super clean, the cutest retro decor. every room and bathroom were decorated to a T! it was 15 minutes from downtown Austin and 30 minutes from Lake Travis. very easy to get to. real quiet neighborhood. I would stay here again, very pleased!

Exactly What We Wanted!

by Margie on 08/10/2018
We so enjoyed our stay! The home was clean, in a perfect location, Brooke was so helpful and we had exactly what we needed! Perfect for two couples & just enough Austin charm.


by Lynsey on 08/10/2018
My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week and were sad to leave! It was the perfect vacation rental. The location is very good, central, it's a beautiful modern condo. It was well stocked with everything we could need including plenty of towels, extra linens, kitchen supplies, etc. The rooftop deck was a lovely perk, check in and check out couldn't have been easier. Absolutely no complaints and would definitely stay here again.

Nice place, close to everything!

by John on 08/10/2018
The communication was great (unfamiliar with the area, and checked in later on in the evening to I got a bit turned around with the alleys!). Clean, good location that was close to everything, nicely priced, and an overall good experience.

Great House

by Lindsay on 08/10/2018
I stayed in this house with a group of girlfriends and it exceeded our expectations. Not only is the home modern and sleek, but it was also very comfortable. We loved it!

Great Stay!

by Katie on 08/10/2018
Getting in and out of the rental was super easy. Location is great.

Wonderful experience!

by Christine on 08/10/2018
Beyond perfect location. Walked everywhere. Beds were so comfortable, temperature was perfect inside the unit, clean, had everything we needed! Thank you!

Great Stay!

by Brian on 08/10/2018
We had a wonderful time in Austin and at the Keasbey Cottage. It is in a great location and met all of our needs. We'll definitely be back if it's not booked.

So close to South Congress; But So Quiet!

My daughter and I were in the Austin area for a week. This property was very secluded and quiet but yet close enough to all the attractions in Austin we wished to visit. It was also very centrally located as we wanted to make a day trip to Waco and then another day trip to San Antonio. The property was very clean; modern and in a very quiet district. We loved our stay very much!


by Joey on 08/10/2018
We stayed at Casa de Miguel with a group of seven adults for a family vacation. This house was jaw dropping gorgeous. The decor and amenities are very upscale and high quality. I seriously wanted to come home and redecorate my house just like this one! There was plenty of room for us all, everyone was able to sleep in their own bed and then congregate in the kitchen and living room. The beds were extremely comfortable. The bedding and towels are luxurious, soft and plush. There was a bathroom with a shower for each bedroom, we never had any problems sharing the bathrooms with seven people. We enjoyed sitting on both patios in the evenings and mornings. The house is very close to Congress street. You can drive and park or even walk to it. A walk took us about 10-15 minutes. The neighborhood is quiet and trendy. The house is so close to Congress Street and 6th street, there just wasn't enough time to do everything we wanted to do! It is about a one hour drive to San Antonio, Jacob's Well, tubing on the Guadalupe and the Salt Lick (all of which I recommend) Brooke, the property manager was prompt with responses and clear with instructions/directions. Booking with her was a very smooth process. I am so glad we found this property, it was the perfect base for our adventure filled vacation.

Perfect Perfect Perfect

My husband and I stayed at the East Austin Nest for a 3 night get away. Well, little did we know we picked the primo spot. Let's just say I wish my own home looked like the Nest - everything you'd need and more is artfully placed with a perfect floor plan, beautiful furniture, a patio, books, art, rain shower. Air conditioning, great bed, comfy sheets, big TV, Netflix and Hulu. Kitchen is all equipped with brand new stuff, and restaurants, bars, coffee shops - quick walk. We ventured down 6th, Cesear Chavez, and up to Roseway for our East side meals. I loved it here and would come back in a second. Stay here - best!

July 4th Weekend

by Srividya on 08/10/2018
The Nest was a great home for a short trip. It's furnished really really well and in a quaint charming neighborhood, about 10 minutes from South Congress. The manager, Brooke, was very friendly and available when needed. I'll definitely recommend this place to everyone I know, and especially to people who may prefer eating home cooked food (fully equipped kitchen), or looking for a relaxing staycation. It's walking distance to the bike and hike trail of Lady Bird Lake, and close to SOCO which has amazing eateries and coffee houses.


by Paul & Vicki on 08/10/2018
We had a great time and in the evening was treated to HBO,etc.


by Hank on 08/10/2018
We had a seamless stay in Austin under the care of Brooke! Everything was as it was described. I even forgot my glasses in the airbnb and they shipped them to me for free! Very nice, I would stay with Emerson again.

5 Stars

by Cassie on 08/10/2018
Amazing place to stay and excellent service. Thanks so much for making our trip a memorable one 🙂

Just What We Needed

by Alissa on 08/10/2018
It was everything we needed in a rental. Within 10 min of all our need to be ats. The space was so cute and well maintained. We LOVED it!!!

Loved The Nest

by Kris on 08/10/2018
The Nest is a great little home at a perfect location. Very close to attractions, but very quiet and pretty neighborhood. We will definitely come back if we are in Austin.

Hyde Park Gem

by Holly on 08/10/2018
We enjoyed staying at this cute cottage in eclectic Hyde Park. The location was great, being close to dining, grocery and coffee shops. The house, itself was clean, comfy and stocked with any little essential we could need. When we did bring up a few minor concerns to Brooke, she was wonderful to deal with. We would gladly stay in Keasbey Cottage again in a heartbeat!

Cool Place

by Tim on 08/10/2018
This place was so clean, and afforded us a prime view of life in Austin. It was very nicely located and provided all the essentials we needed for a simple vacation stay. We received a great rate as the result of an opening right when we needed it near time to arrive. The rate was amazing, actually, one that no hotel that would grant that kind of clean space, location and family atmosphere would come even close to. The only issue we had was the creepy ghost lights on the BMW bike. I tried to turn them off for you, but couldn't figure out how. It was the speedometer... lights. awesome hard rock maple dining room furniture!

Adorable Home in a fantastic neighborhood

by David on 08/08/2018
My wife and I loved staying at this adorable Austin home. It was well appointed and freshly remodeled. The master bed room and bathroom had everything we needed to feel at home and the two extra bedrooms were perfect for our occasional guests. Our host Brooke was fantastic and so accommodating. We would definitely stay here again.

Home Away From Home

by Mary Helen on 08/08/2018
Sweet, comfortable bungalow in the best location. It feels just like being at home.

Super Cool Stay

by Nicolas on 08/08/2018
This was the perfect condo in the exciting city of Austin! We loved every minute in the property and town!

Great AirBnb near Convention Center

by Todd on 08/08/2018
This is pretty much the perfect Airbnb. It's a very short walk to the Convention Center and downtown, as well as bars and restaurants on 6th Street and Rainey Street. If you head the other direction, it's an easy walk or ride to the bars, shops, and restaurants of East Austin.

It's also well-appointed with wireless, sizable living room area, as well as a walk in closet and nice, clean bathroom.

Check in was easy, as well, and the communication was excellent. No complaints!

Great location

by Molly on 08/08/2018
Loved this house. All the amenities, nice screened porch and outdoor sitting area. Walked to lots of good restaurants.

Clean, Well Equipped Home

by Chrissy on 08/08/2018
Within walking distance to Barton Springs and a food truck park! 10 minute drive to downtown Austin. Home was very clean, and kitchen was fully equipped with anything you may need. A/C worked great! Check-in and check-out were easy.

cozy, clean and perfect

by Kay on 08/08/2018
East Lynn Charmer was perfect for our 4-day stay in Austin. It was what we needed--2 adequate bedrooms, one bath, a small sitting area and a good size well-appointed kitchen. It was very clean and well maintained, except for squeaky doors. We loved the location because it had it's own coffee shops, restaurants and places of interest, but was close enough to downtown to be there in a few minutes. The manager's communications were clear and very professional. I would definitely recommend staying here unless you have small children to carry up and down stairs, as it is on the second floor, and don't miss the taco truck across the street, Cenote Cafe and La Barbecue down Cesar Chavez St. For some water fun, make sure to go to Barton Springs and then float the Colorado River.

Great stay!

by Laurent on 08/08/2018
This rental location is perfectly located within Austin, and was very well appointed. One thing to note is that this is a duplex, but with completely separate entrances and front yards. Everything was very clean and the contact person was incredibly helpful and professional. Great stay!


by Megan on 08/08/2018
Great little place to stay in Austin. It was clean, comfortable and perfect. It is a Casita so it is small, but we expected that. Beds were super comfy and the location was close to downtown. There was an issue with the thermostat during our stay, but management was helpful. Will definitely keep this in mind for the next trip here.

Hyde Park Studio is perfect

by Cecilia on 08/08/2018
The location is great for getting around Austin. The property is always clean and the customer service is excellent. I stay here once a month and it is the perfect work retreat with plenty of places to eat close by.

Loved it.

by Mary on 08/08/2018
Loved it. Very clean and comfortable place and well taken care of. We will go back and recommend to family and friends. Could not ask for a better stay. Thank you.

Supre neat!

by Sally on 08/08/2018
Loved our stay! Everything was so clean. I booked last minute and they were still so accommodating and very helpful. The location was so perfect! Hidden yet in the middle of everything! Just wished I could have stayed longer! Will definitely be back again.

Just right!

by Kara on 08/08/2018
It was just right! Clean, and with all the necessities. Lovely spot to enjoy some time away in Austin.

Great rental and perfect Location

by Tatiana on 08/08/2018
In few words all I can say is the rental is super clean and neat. Exactly as in the pictures. Comfortable beds and coach. Quiet and perfect for relaxing. Walking distance (13 min) from Congress Ave. and located in a great spot of the city to get by car (5-7 min) or bus to downtown, lady bird lake, and parks. Great neighborhood to take a daily walk. Lots of trees in the neighborhood. Brooke, the manager was of great help when contacted. I'd recommend this place and I'd stay here again.

A Great Weekend

by Betty on 08/08/2018
The house was wonderful! Perfectly located, spacious, and very clean and well-maintained.

Would highly recommend!

by Lynda on 08/08/2018
Had a great vacation! After a few emails, management answered some questions I had, and really came through by allowing us to check in an hour early (short notice) so my son could work in a quiet space! Beds were comfortable, neighbors quiet and great location. I was concerned when looking at other reviews about the tricky driveway and stairs being slick. I'm so glad we booked this home anyway because neither one is an issue. There were already staple items like laundry soap, cleaning products, sugar,coffee etc so that was a plus and in turn we left items we purchased that hopefully others can use as well. Home was clean. Dishwasher and stove were a little tricky to start but could easily be overcome if you read the book.

Austin at its best!

by Chelsi on 08/08/2018
We came to Austin to escape Hurricane Harvey. Property manager was the most helpful, and accommodating person to work with. We cannot say enough good things about her or this home. The home worked perfectly for a small family of four. The kids loved the backyard and we loved the screened in porch. Thank you so much to Emerson Guest Properties, and the homeowner for providing a lovely home away from home.

Highly recommend!

by Courtney on 08/08/2018
My husband and I stayed at The Nest for several days. It was very comfortable and clean. The kitchen was well stocked and we enjoyed our time there. Hurricane Harvey hit Austin during our stay, and Emerson made sure we had safety information. Highly recommend!

Glad We Chose This One

by Clint on 08/08/2018
We were a group of about 10 guys planning a DADchelor party for one of our friends who was soon to be a father. In looking for a venue, we knew we wanted a place removed from city distractions with a nice pool and plenty of space to spread out and relax. Bear Creek was an obvious choice with its huge pool, expansive common areas, amazing patio and plenty of bed space. Little did we know Hurricane Harvey would bear down on our weekend and dump record rainfall levels for August all over Texas. Rain never once stopped us from enjoying the hot tub which stayed surprisingly warm considering how much rain we had. The pool was in infinity mode for the entirety of Saturday but we still swam as if the skies were clear. The kitchen provided a great gathering point for each day as we cooked every meal there. The living room was a great venue for small groups of gamers or during the Mayweather vs McGregor fight. Plenty of seating for everyone. At the end of each day we all had a place to sleep. The only negative word spoken during the entire weekend was in regard to the small back room behind the kitchen. Apparently during a storm that room can sound a bit spooky. Other than that we thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend here, and will be inquiring for next year's weekend trip.

Living like a lucky local!

by Viviana on 08/08/2018
The cottage was just as described-- quaint and well-equipped. The beds were comfortable, nice linens and towels and a functional kitchen. The porch and yard were quite nice!

Cozy Spot

by Ron on 08/08/2018
East Side Tree House was the perfect place from which to explore Austin. It was a quiet, roomy, clean, and cozy spot to return to at the end of the day. You will enjoy your stay at the East Side Tree House.

Hope to be back!

by Laura on 08/08/2018
Loved staying at Keasbey Cottage!! It's an adorable home in a great part of Austin. Hope to be back in the future.

Lovely Bungalow

by Emily on 08/08/2018
Absolutely beautiful bungalow! We felt like we were staying inside a home you'd see in a magazine, like Garden and Gun. Just beautiful and we could easily get where ever we want to be in Austin.

Perfect location and great amenities!

by Colleen on 08/08/2018
I loved my stay here. The apartment was in the perfect location and better than described. Very clean and all amenities one could need - plus they were easily accessible.

I'm staying.

by Dov on 08/08/2018
I would be happy living in this house for the rest of my life.

Great place!

by Sarah on 08/08/2018
The house is very well designed and furnished. We had no problems during our stay! We comfortably slept 5 and could definitely sleep more! It is a wonderful home with a nice porch, and good back yard. The location is a bit north of central Austin but not hard to get to. The neighborhood is quiet and great for families. We loved our stay!

Loved this place!

by Alex on 08/08/2018
This home was exactly as described - perfect for 2 guests, decorated adorably, good location, etc. Hosts were easy to work with and everything was as expected. Would definitely recommend this property for a stay.

The home is super clean and in a top location for downtown Austin!

A Dream!

by Katie on 08/08/2018
Casa de Miguel was a dream! It is such a gorgeous house! Not to mention that it was spotless when I arrived. It had just the right number of beds/bathrooms for me and all my friends. I have house envy after staying at Miguel. If I ever need to book a stay in Austin again, I am doing it here!

Great stay!

by Joe on 08/08/2018
Our stay at the Hillside Modern was great. The house was exactly as described. The owner of the property was easy to communicate with and accommodated all of our request. I stayed with a group of friends and everyone was very impressed and happy with their stay. The house is walkable to the Barton Springs Pool and a small convenient store. I would stay here again with no doubt. Thanks again!


by Carolina on 08/08/2018
It was the nicest and the cleanest little place ever! The awesome details of coffee, fresh smelling towels and the beds were so proper and clean, just AWESOME!

Charming, comfy and convenient to everywhere!

by Ashley on 08/08/2018

Great Weekend!!

by Erica on 08/08/2018
We were in Austin for the weekend for a girls' weekend of 7 girls. The house was so perfect! The location was convenient and we always felt safe. The house was clean and absolutely beautiful. We did not want to leave on Sunday! Everyone in our group said they would love to rent this house again.

Great trip to Austin!

by Maria on 08/08/2018
Clean and cute house with very responsive house managers!

Awesome Location

by Janice on 08/08/2018
We had a great time. The house is nicely appointed, and accommodated eight adults easily.

Excellent location, comfortable digs, great price

by Matthew on 08/07/2018
This place is just perfect as a temporary home base in Austin. You can easily walk downtown, or just stick around East Austin, where there are plenty of excellent and fun dining and nightlife options. Highly recommended.

Excellent Experience

by Kevin on 08/07/2018
Reservation and setup easy! Home was amazing and had everything you could possible need. We left some items at the home, and management mailed them out right away. 10++ experience!

Excellent Stay

by Kelly on 08/07/2018
We loved staying in this quaint home in a very cute neighborhood. We did a small girls trip in Austin and the home has everything you could need.Great location close to everything...we could walk to South Congress for the shopping and restaurants. Definitely recommend this place for small groups.

Great place to stay and awesome location

by Samantha on 08/07/2018
I went down for my bachelorette party with five of my friends. It fit all six of us great and the location was a 5-10 minute uber ride to everything. You could even walk to a bunch of restaurants and to the large park there. Great experience.

Weekend Getaway

by Ashley on 08/07/2018
Little Josephine was perfect for our 3 person bachelorette getaway! We loved the look and feel upon arrival and it didn't disappoint all weekend. The beds were comfy, shower pressure was amazing, and all the things you forget to bring like coffee creamer and sunscreen were already there for us. It's located so close to 6th Street, S. Congress and Rainey St that we never had to wait more than 5 minutes or pay more than $7 for an Uber. I highly recommend this house for 3-4 people.

Cutest Little Duplex

by Kristi on 08/07/2018
This duplex was super cute & clean. It's an older home that they have updated to make bright & airy. Streets are a little crowded, but that's just Austin. The location was perfect for us, and we were even able to walk to one of our fav vacation restaurants- Gordough's.
We will definitely pick this over a hotel any time we visit.

Lovely, Clean

by Sherwin on 08/07/2018

Great Stay at East Austin Nest!

by Kailey on 08/07/2018

Perfect Rental For Two With Austin Hipster Upscale Decor

Very nice, well-maintained and clean apartment. Great customer service in an exciting neighborhood. I definitely recommend this.

Perfect Austin Getaway

by Stacy on 08/07/2018
The house is the perfect Austin style and within walking distance of South 1st and only a few minutes from South Congress.

The decor is the ultimate in Austin, Texas chic. There are two bedrooms in the main house. One with a queen bed and one with two twin beds. The main house has 1.5 baths. A great kitchen and lovely screened in cedar porch. The porch is great for your morning coffee or evening night caps.

In addition to the main house there is an efficiency just a few steps away with a queen bed and another full bath.

Great Location & Value

by Jessica on 08/07/2018
Great location - walking distance to many Austin attractions. Clean, safe, and easy to work with for check-in process. Would stay again.

Mellow Yellow #2 was very clean and well-maintained, with everything in great condition.

The property managers were very professional and easy to get a hold of.

Great place to stay!

Excellent stay in Travis Heights

by Patrick on 08/07/2018
Enjoyed a superb stay at The Nest over a long weekend. Great location in central Austin. Will definitely stay here again. Only small quibble with water pressure in kitchen and bathroom.

Short visit to Austin for the Grand Prix

by Mark on 08/07/2018
The East Austin Nest was a perfect place to stay in Austin a short walk 10 to 15 mins from downtown but in a quiet neighbourhood.Their a numerous quirky coffe bars and lively bars and restaurants in the East Austin area if you do not fancy the walk to downtown. Dave and Molly are great hosts and have created a fantastic home from home while you are in Austin.We would highly recommend this property.

Awesome central location

by Lee on 08/07/2018
My family and I stayed here for the 2nd weekend of ACL 2017. It was perfect for us. The kitchen was great and the house was just the right size for 3.5 people. Even though we had our car, walking to the shops, restaurants, and Zilker park were easy.

Perfect Place to Stay in Austin

by Amanda on 08/07/2018
The vacation rental was very nicely decorated and clean! It had a great outdoor area for sitting outside. So much better than staying at a hotel! The location was perfect as it was an easy walk to South Congress (less than 10 mins) where there are restaurants, bars and tons of shops. We went to ACL and were able to walk from there as well (about a mile and a half walk from the park). The property manager was very friendly and responsive when we had questions.


by Lee on 08/07/2018
Two bedrooms, Two bathrooms, VERY spacious, inside and outside space is gorgeous, you feel right at home the moment you enter the property, walking distance to downtown and convention center, easy access to everywhere. One on-site parking, one street parking spot. We loved our stay here. Highly recommend it to others! The property manager's APP was awesome.

Fantastic home base for a family wedding

by Hailey And Ben on 08/07/2018
We stayed here for a family wedding and could not have asked for a better "home base" for 4 adults (including a 90 year old) and a toddler. The house was clean and comfortable, not to mention beautifully decorated. We had everything we could have asked for, from a pack n' play for the baby to morning coffee to a hair dryer. The laundry is a great bonus, as well as the welcoming back yard. Check-in and check-out were a breeze. Great experience - couldn't recommend it more.

In LOVE with this property

by Olivia on 08/07/2018
Staying at Brentwood Bungalow was a dream! The house was super clean, had great amenities, and looks exactly like the pictures. You're in a great area thats just a short drive to downtown and other popular areas like South Congress. Having the Emerson Guest Properties app made checking in and out an absolute breeze. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend. Thank you!

College Friends Reunion Weekend

by Britney on 08/07/2018
We had a great time and loved that the house was spacious enough to sleep 6 women with enough bathrooms and mirrors for everyone to get ready! The kitchen is adequately equipped with everything you will need to cook. We loved being able to use the hot tub and the house was far enough away from neighbors where every noise won't be heard.

Lovely stay!

by Kate on 08/07/2018
We loved our time in The Mellow Yellow: clean, warm, and great location made it a perfect choice for our long weekend in Austin. Would absolutely recommend!

Great place to stay!

by Christa on 08/07/2018
Really enjoyed this house. It is spacious, beautiful, quiet, and has everything you could possibly need. It's in a decent "up and coming" location, too, within good walking distance from stuff you want to do/see.

Back again!

by Ronald on 08/07/2018
This trip we stayed in Mellow Yellow #1, and had an equally good time as staying in MY2 next door. The location is great for entertainment in South Lamar's many venues, as well as being close to our family's home. Everything you need is here.

Home Away From Home

Wedding Getaway

by Amanda on 08/07/2018
My (now) husband and I moved from Austin to Portland, OR, about a year and a half ago and planned our wedding in Austin! We stayed here in the days leading up to, and a few days after, our wedding. It was PERFECT. Adorable, clean, and plenty of room. Great location. We will definitely be looking into staying here again during our next visit to Austin!

Didn't want to leave!

by Ryan on 08/07/2018
I loved staying in this home. It was so comfortable and beautifully decorated. I wanted to live in the master bathroom. I was here for almost 2 months and I was sad to leave. Working with this property rental company was also very easy. I'd highly recommend this property.

Austin Getaway

by Catherine on 08/07/2018
Loved our stay! The location is close to major hot spots!!

Perfect Nest

by Olga on 08/07/2018
Amazing little nest and perfect for my business and leisure needs while in town. The Nest is centrally located, beautiful, clean and safe. I was able to park my rental car right in front of the house without any issues for my entire stay. I have dietary needs so I went to Whole Foods (approx 10 min drive ) to get my groceries and cook for the week. I also discovered a Thoms Market very close to the house where one can find any last minute necessity. I enjoyed Congresss Street for leisurely walks and shopping . I will definitely recommend to others. Thank you for a smooth process for check in and check out and for such detailed instructions and guides.

Austin Wedding

by Rebecca on 08/07/2018
Very enjoyable and comfortable

Great location and exactly suited our needs!

by Rebecca on 08/07/2018
This place was a perfect fit for us. We had our two teen boys and two dogs. We were able to crate the dogs while we were out and also enjoy the lovely sun porch while they played in the fenced yard. Easy drive to campus and easy walk or bike ride to local store, bakery and restaurant.

Great place to stay in Austin

by Sandra on 08/07/2018
This is our favorite place to stay when we come to Austin to visit. The duplex is spotless and the decor is very attractive. After being out for the day we loved coming back to The Mellow Yellow to relax. The location for us was perfect, shopping nearby and very convenient for our daily trek to visit family in northwest Austin. We were thoroughly pleased with our stay here and have already booked this location for our next stay.

Sweet one bedroom with downtown view

by Sarah on 08/07/2018
The apartment is close to downtown and SoCo. Immaculately clean, has everything you need. Large luxurious shower is a bonus. Had a great time and would recommend.

Fantastic property. Very well equipped home with nice backyard. We enjoyed the backyard deck with plenty of seating. We would definitely stay here again!

Magical Christmas!

by Shannon on 08/07/2018
This home is beautiful. Tons of space and lots of seating for big groups. We cooked several meals and the kitchen had everything you needed! The garage and additional parking was a huge bonus. The beds were very comfortable. We would definitely consider this home again when we visit Austin.

The Coziest!

by Carol on 08/07/2018
This cottage is a good size with two bedrooms. We even cooked our Christmas meal of salmon there. It was clean with easy accessibility to Airport Road and Highway 35. It was a very nice experience!

Cozy home in Brentwood!

by Troy on 08/07/2018
Lovely, updated home centrally located. The beds are super-comfy and the furnishings and finishes are retro-moderned. A great place to stay.

Perfect home!

by Lisa on 08/07/2018
We were there with 3 couples and the house was perfect. Each room gave everyone their privacy but yet the kitchen and main room was spacious for everyone to gather. House was well stocked with anything we needed.

by Emily on 08/07/2018
This is a really lovely property that is impeccably and intuitively decorated. We had just as much fun hanging out here as we did exploring the rest of Austin -- especially considering the unseasonable coldness that hit the city the weekend we were there. Thank you!

Fine Place

by Roger on 08/07/2018
Space is very nice, open airy, clean and as advertised. Only possible issue, but it is advertised as such, is that cooking facilities are limited to a hot plate and dorm size fridge. TV pkg. is very limited.

Great location and space for a ladies weekend!

by Lisa on 08/07/2018
We used this house for home base during a girls trip, and it was just perfect! Space was great, beds are comfy, and the location is close to lots of fun restaurants and bars.

Great stay in Austin!

by Joel on 08/07/2018
This is a great location for my first visit to Austin! It is right near a couple of great bars and is a quick Uber ride to all the spots on town... or a long walk.

Great location for visiting Austin!

by Janice on 08/07/2018
Our family really enjoyed this property while in Austin to celebrate Christmas. It was very close to where my daughter lives in Austin so our entire family was easily able to spend time together. Our grandsons loved the backyard and the swing set! The property was described accurately, was clean and well maintained. Prompt customer service was provided when a minor issue came up. Beds were comfortable and the trundle was really handy for my two yr old grandson. I would certainly recommend this property to others and rent it again myself if we are back in Austin.

Austin Beauty

by David on 08/07/2018
This was a wonderful place to stay in Austin - so close to the center and in a peaceful and beautiful neighborhood. The place was clean, beautifully decorated, and had everything I needed as a base for my work. Just wonderful!

Great downtown location

by Marisa on 08/07/2018
Loved the place. Very cozy. It was great having the coffee maker and coffee supplies.


by Kate on 08/07/2018
The house was terrific, as was the service from Brooke, Emerson Guest Properties.

Our Stay

by Olga on 08/07/2018
We absolutely loved staying at this cute and centrally located home.The house was just perfect for our stay. We easily had access to the downtown area of Austin, grocery stores, great cafes and restaurants, and many food trucks. We felt like the location was prime and made our stay a delightful home base with so much around us. We will definitely recommend and return. Thank you so much.

Cute & Perfect

by Korinna on 08/07/2018
The simple floor plan with bonus seasonal room out back was perfect for my family of four. The provided pack and play and high chair helped us to settle in quickly! The simple furnishings meant that we had no need to baby proof! It was a wonderful stay and we will definitely be back!


by Katie on 08/07/2018
Loved the place. Would stay there again.

Great Cozy Place

by Josh on 08/07/2018
Place was perfect for 2-4 people. walking distance to great shops and local restaurants and live music venues! Beautiful neighborhood too

Quaint Home - Great Location

by Derek on 08/07/2018
My family of four stayed here for a week over the holiday break and had a nice, relaxing time. We were able to walk to some of our favorite Austin locations from the house including town lake, the Austin Central Library, Whole Foods, and Barton Springs. We frequently visit Austin for vacation and have stayed in several HomeAway's. Little Josephine was one of our favorites thanks to the great location and cozy, clean space.

Cozy Cottage

by Abbey on 08/07/2018
Very comfortable, quiet, charming place. Close to restaurants and attractions. I would highly recommend it to my friends. My wife and I would definitely stay there again.

Dream Country Getaway

by Patty on 08/07/2018
I LOVED staying here with my husband. It was peaceful and serene. The property is SO close to the town full of boutique shops and little restaurants. The hot tub was a nice end to a day of walking. We are looking forward to coming back in the summer to splash around in the river that's just down the hill from the cabin.

Great Condo

by Lauren on 08/07/2018
This place was perfect and spacious for us. We were lucky we had a car because it was nice to drive to downtown and surrounding neighborhoods. We would stay here again!

North Carolinian Loved Park Lane Modern

by Marjorie on 08/07/2018
We have rented several places through VRBO and this was our best choice thus far. Clean, orderly, uncluttered, but with everything you need for an extended stay. Great location...had a wedding to attend at Four Seasons, and sightseeing during extra days. Much attention to detail..problem with tv was fixed by owner. Highly recommend.

Downtown Austin Condo

by Alan on 08/07/2018
The condo was in a great location, just across the street of the convention center. Nice condo and close to everything. It does not come with a parking spot, so you must use one of the parking garages nearby.

Exactly where you want to be!

by Charlotte on 08/07/2018
This house is a real find! It is beautiful inside and out. It's comfortable, well decorated, and so close to so many great restaurants and Austin Attractions. I am recommending this property to everyone I know who plans to visit Austin. You will love it!

Fam jam in Austin

by Brenda on 08/07/2018
Perfect place to spend a week in Austin. Great home. Great location and easy company to deal with.

Better than expected!

by Jessica on 08/07/2018
The trip was for a 40th birthday girls weekend with 4 friends. We absolutely loved the place! Clean, creatively decorated, and plenty of room!

Cute & Modern

by Sonia on 08/07/2018
House is just as described. Great location. I'd stay again!

Austin Girls Trip

by Meghan on 08/07/2018
We had a great time! Good location, very clean. No complaints!

Beautiful Guest Home!

by Alex on 08/07/2018
Highly recommend this property to anyone looking around the Austin area. Prime location. This place is just as nice, if not nicer than the pictures!

Everything I Needed!

by Bill on 08/07/2018
I loved the cozy, clean space. It is designed so efficiently that it felt so much bigger and provided everything I was looking for. The neighborhood is excellent. People are friendly, public transportation and local markets are nearby and it's not far from several bar/restaurant enclaves. I'd stay there anytime.

Perfect for a long weekend!

by Aaron on 08/07/2018
This rental was clean, quiet, and had everything I needed for a brief stay in Austin.

Beautiful Neighborhood

by Steven on 08/07/2018
A very comfortable place to stay in a beautiful neighborhood.

Amazing Property Close To Everything

by Ryan on 08/07/2018
My family and I rented this property to participate in the Austin Marathon. The property is close enough to the start line to walk there if you want. The property itself is beautiful with enough space for all your family! Everything you would need was right there. Highly recommend this property to anyone - especially if you are traveling with family!

Weekend Wedding

by Janice on 08/07/2018
House was cosy, really well-equipped. We were delighted to find coffee, cream, sugar, and sweetener in the refirgerator. Neighborhood is eclectic, intereting, and great for walking. We'd love to stay here again.


by Jenny on 08/07/2018
We spent my 60th Birthday here and even though it got down into the 30s at night, it was really pleasant during the day! We enjoyed relaxing and eating. We LOVED the horseshoes and walking down to the river. We absolutely loved our time at this beautiful home. We cannot wait to come back!

Nice Stay

by Matthew on 08/07/2018
The accommodation was very nice overall. Super clean space with a well-stocked kitchen, bathroom and laundry unit. Location was perfect for the many sites in Austin's South Congress area and the neighborhood was quiet and pleasant. Host was responsive and helpful. The driveway was a bit challenging as it is very steep, but I was able to master the quick upward angle. The two of us were there for 2 months, and it was a bit small for that length of time. We did know it would be tight to be honest. Overall great stay in a great city!

Worked out perfectly!!!

by Missey on 08/07/2018
We really enjoyed our stay, so close to everything including mass transit. The unit is very nice and very clean. I loved the reclaimed use of ship lap. Very well incorporated. We would stay again in a heartbeat. Thank you!!!

Loved this beautiful home!

by Jessica on 08/07/2018
We came to Wimberley as a family to try to find our own property. We love the people here and we love Wimberley. We cooked in the amazing kitchen and had everything we needed at our fingertips. Your property is so well thought out and we loved your decor choices! Thank you for allowing our family to enjoy your beautiful home.

Great Location

by Greg on 08/07/2018
Great location, great price. Not fancy and I'm totally cool with that - clean place, comfortable, and plenty good for most folks. Would definitely stay here again and probably will next time I'm out this way.

No Room For Improvement

by Brian on 08/07/2018
We rented this property for a month and it exceeded our expectations by a wide margin. I would recommend staying here and would stay here again myself. We had our 3 month old with us- and Emerson provided a pack and play. Incredible location, great place. No room for improvement that I can think of.

Better Than Expected

by Melissa on 07/19/2018
This home is awesome. Great location, very nicely furnished. We were pleasantly surprised at the outside fire pit seating area. The back screened-in porch is nice as well. Management was very responsive to a mild problem with an appliance.

Chic studio apartment in great location!

by Carla on 07/19/2018
Such a cute, super clean, comfortable place to stay in Hyde Park. Loved the easy access to the unit. This place has all the things you need for a relaxing stay after a day of enjoying Austin. The vaulted ceilings made the apartment feel more spacious. Loved walking the neighborhood!!

Perfect For Us

by Mary Lou on 07/19/2018
This is the second time we have stayed at this perfect house for us. It is clean, neat, and well-equipped. It is in a quiet, beautiful neighborhood which is an easy walk to restaurants and Lake Austin. The private patio is a nice place to sit, read, and dine. Our stays are almost a month long. The host stays in close touch and is very responsive.

Can't wait to come back!

by Kasy on 07/19/2018
This house could not have been more perfect! Whoever designed this house has amazing taste! We relaxed, cooked and enjoyed the Blanco River. It was a blast! Coffee on the porch was awesome. We really loved our time here. Thank you for having us! We will definitely be back!

Eclectic and comfortable

by Jill on 07/19/2018
This property is impressive and beautiful. Setting and landscape off the back porch is one where you'll want to hang out for hours. It was clean, unique, and had everything we needed! Gorgeous Master bath as well!!

Simply Superb!

by Julie on 07/19/2018
The guest house was simply impeccable. Extremely clean, well decorated, comfortable bed, and all the amenities you would need from blankets to towels to dishes and then some. Washer/Dryer was a plus. Easy to get in and out with the keypad, parking in the back was convenient. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Austin. Walking distance to Rainey and 6th and downtown area. East side is super cool too 🙂 We miss it already and will definitely be back.

Wow! Wow! Wow! A Must Stay!

by Katrina on 07/19/2018
We were so impressed with this rental house. Every single guest that walked through the doors joked that they would purchase and live in that location! We were so excited to be there when we opened the door. It felt like the house went on and on! It was so big! Very spacious. The house accommodates 8 well. There are two living spaces, a dining space, and a kitchen with a 3 seater table in the corner. What a gorgeous atmosphere and aesthetic! It is beautifully decorated and such a fun, cozy place to be. It really matched our group's vibe well. It was also very impeccably clean and taken care of. My sister and I stayed in the navy blue room and WOW that bed and the sheets and pillows are so comfortable! We felt like we were on a cloud! We heard similar comments about our guests' rooms and bed as well. The aesthetic of the house helped us feel more comfortable in the home. There's just something about a nice space that makes you feel good. The bathrooms were really nice, despite no counter space, it was easy to find shelving, cupboards, or benches provided to keep our products while we stayed. The bathroom next to the navy blue room and sliding door has a very nice ceiling heater! Both bathrooms had a shower tub. The kitchen was a wonderful space that allowed us to cook, bake, and prep meals in-house. The basic appliances and cookware are provided, but if you are expecting something specific, ask before you get there--staff was extremely accommodating when we asked about a coffee maker! Yes they have one! The rental staff was easy to talk to and accommodating if we had questions. Very fast response time, too. Incredibly professional, understanding, knowledgeable. One suggestion we would say is to take more pictures and show off the actual size! We were nervous to book this location because it seemed on the small side, but it's not!

Highest Rating

by Kathy on 07/19/2018
What a great house! I don't give 5 stars easily, but this is well earned. Here are just some of the great features that earned this rating: Well supplied kitchen including tupperware, numerous pots and pans and gadgets. Luggage racks in every room. Quality bath products in every bathroom and at every sink. Big fluffy bath towels. Luxury beds and bedding. Keureg coffee maker with pods, sugar and cream. Quick response to problems or questions. We three sisters had a great stay and hope to return next year for our annual Oscar party weekend.

Nice place

by Michael on 07/19/2018
Nice place. Super convenient.

Fantastic stay!

by Kelli on 07/19/2018
Wow, I can only say amazing things about East Austin Nest. It was clean, it was quiet (a few neighborhood dogs that bark but that's it), it was cool and the hosts were extremely communicative and attentive.

Great stay at a great place!

by Jai on 07/19/2018
We loved our stay at this property. We were in town for the SXSW Edu conference and the proximity of this place to where the conference was held (about a 10 min walk) made it so that we didn't need to rent a car and deal with parking each day. The house was clean and spacious, with nice appliances and lots of thoughtful touches throughout. The neighborhood is in transition.

Perfect Location

by Janie on 07/19/2018
A perfect location in the midst of expanding growth, Mellow Yellow remains comfortable, convenient, and quiet. Updates welcome
guests...highly recommend.

Wonderful Christmas

by Julie on 07/19/2018
We spent Christmas here with our families. We played games, cooked in the fabulous kitchen, watched the river, walked and talked a lot, worked on puzzles, avoided as many nerf gun wars as possible, enjoyed the town of Wimberley at Christmas time and attended Christmas Eve service in Buda. We love this house and had a wonderful time!

Amazing Weekend Getaway

by Courtney on 07/19/2018
This property was AMAZING! The location is beautiful and the property exceeded our expectations. We couldn't have been happier!

Clean and Comfortable

by Caroline on 07/19/2018
We had a great stay at this property for a weekend visit. Beds were comfortable and everything was spotless. Nicely appointed. Luckily, each bedroom had a white noise machine. They helped drown out outdoor noise. The property manager was very helpful. I would stay here again.

Great stay!

by Heidi on 07/19/2018
We enjoyed our stay at Little Josephine! It had everything we needed and the location was great--walkable to restaurants and also close to downtown. Very clean and comfortable. I would stay there again! Thank you!


by Steve on 07/17/2018
We spent Spring Break here with grandparents, grandkids and siblings and it was PERFECT! Ziplining and shopping in the square. Floated the Blanco River. Relaxed and danced on the screened-in porch! We loved the super friendly people in town! Spending time in this amazing house was so wonderful for our family! We cannot wait to come back and bring more family & friends. Thank you for loaning us your lovely Luna Rio! It was a blessing for us!

Great Time

by Belinda on 07/17/2018
THIS PLACE WAS PERFECT for our girls getaway! We played games, drank beverages on the porch, waded in the river, shopped in the town, watched movies, even some mud masking...all in all...GREAT TIME! This is an amazing home and we are sure to be back! Thank You!

Very Pleased

by John on 07/17/2018
We were very pleased with the location and overall cleanliness of this property. We especially enjoyed the fact that we were close to Zilker Park and walking trails. Numerous restaurants, shopping venues, and the library were within an easy drive as well. Since we were traveling with a small dog, the fenced-in back yard was a real plus! We had the opportunity to meet some of the neighbors, and felt safe walking/exploring the area.

Best Place to Celebrate the Holidays

by Kathy on 07/17/2018
We are back for our second Christmas Family gathering. We love it here and it is a wonderful place to have our family get together and celebrate Christmas. We cooked, ate, opened presents, played "white elephant", played with our one-year old, played board games, watched football, stayed up late, went hiking, watched football, told stories, name it. We even had a few visits from a fox. Thank you for providing the perfect place for our growing family to meet and celebrate this Holiday Season!

Cozy Little Getaway

by Monroe on 07/17/2018
The cottage is located in a very remote and wooded area. It's a lovely home very well appointed, and cared for. The backyard and the sunroom are definitely top notch. With the exception of being able to hear the traffic from I-35, you would think that you were in a wooded retreat. The house is on a very Steep Hill, but has fairly level driveway big enough for one vehicle. The neighborhood is very very quiet. This is not the spot if you are looking for a party house. If you want a Quiet Retreat-type getaway I would strongly recommend this property.

This is a lovely home!

by Connie on 07/17/2018
We hung out on the river in floats, shopped in the square, golfed, went to Jacob's Well, the Blue Hole and mainly spent time with family. We loved having coffee on the porch every morning. THIS IS A LOVELY HOME! We really enjoyed our stay, it was perfect for the family. We enjoyed a splash in the hot tub and sitting on the screened-in porch. We cannot wait to come back next year! Wimberley is so relaxing and beautiful...the perfect combination for rejuvenation!


by Faye on 07/17/2018
A very clean and well-appointed house in a beautiful quiet residential neighborhood with quick and easy access to downtown. Comfortable bed and pillows, quiet and private. At the top of our many HomeAway experiences.

Great House

by Tod on 07/17/2018
Everything went well. Very nice property, as advertised.

Cozy Austin Stay

by Jaclyn on 07/17/2018
I would recommend East Side Tree House to anyone staying in Austin who wants to experience the city and the East side of town. My friend and I stayed here for a three-night vacation, and this was the perfect place for us. The apartment is very comfortable, spacious, and clean. The bed was comfortable for sleeping and the couch for relaxing. It's in a quiet, residential neighborhood that is easy walking distance to a bunch of cool restaurants, bars, and shops in East Austin. It's also a short walk to a B-Cycle station, the city's bike sharing program, which allowed us to enjoy biking from our place to the trail along the river, South Congress, Zilker Park, the capitol, and UT. When we weren't biking, Uber rides to other parts of the city were quick and affordable. The property manager was very responsive and hospitable. She allowed us to check in early, as well as store our luggage for a few hours after checkout. Thank you for being our cozy home for a few nights in wonderful Austin!

Lovely, Restful Stay

by Janelle on 07/17/2018
We had a fabulous time in this home, which fit our small family perfectly. We loved the porch and the fire pit, and enjoyed being so close to the city.

Great Escape

by John on 07/17/2018
This townhouse was perfect. Close enough to downtown to be there in minutes, but away from the chaos, traffic, etc. Quiet, clean, spacious, and had all of the amenities I could have hoped for, and the outside patio was an awesome way to get the day started over morning coffee.

Loved this bungalow in the heart of Austin!

by Laura on 07/17/2018
Very clean and comfortable place to call home in one of the best spots to stay in Austin. Having a beautiful screened in porch overlooking a tree-filled, private yard is an added bonus. Nice decor, linens, ample pillows and plenty of towels. Appreciated having a washer and dryer as well as the artisan coffee, creamer and sugar they provided. Don't let that keep you from a visit to cafe Medici - my favorite coffee shop a few blocks away!

A Perfect House

by Nancy on 07/17/2018
We stayed a month at the Casa de Miguel. The house was perfect. Emerson Guest Properties made it easy by starting you out with coffee, paper and cleaning supplies, etc. Felt like home immediately. Had family members visit. Even with six people at the house, it never felt crowded. Had a problem with the garbage disposal, and Amy showed the next day to fix it. We were not coming back to Austin next year, but the house was so great, we are now considering it!

Wonderful stay!

by Roberto on 07/17/2018
We had a great time staying at this property. Brooke helped us all along and did everything possible to meet our needs. Place is greatly maintained, amazing location and has everything you need. Quiet and comfortable. We traveled with our baby girl and Brooke even gave us a high chair and pack and play for our stay.

Fun in Austin

by Daniel on 07/17/2018
Great home. Fantastic location. We had everything we needed. Just as nice as the pictures show!

Great rooftop deck!

by Stephen on 07/17/2018
We really enjoyed our stay here. The rooftop deck is the best--incredible view of the rapidly expanding Austin skyline. Great location too--walk to Amy's Ice Cream, Whole Foods, bakeries, etc. Friendly nearby cat a bonus too!

Perfect getaway!

by Rochelle on 07/17/2018
From the moment I booked, information was provided for check in. Upon arrival, we entered a spotless house whose pictures did not lie. The house was well stocked with cooking items, spices, coffee and creamer, and necessities like shampoo and conditioner in every bath. We loved the location and the decor. A great Easter weekend was had!

Cozy home with a lot of style!

by Annmarie on 07/17/2018
The property was beautiful, stylish and made the perfect setting for a girl hangout! I honestly thought because it was titled "bungalow" that it was going to be very small, and from the outside I still had those suspicions... but boy was I wrong! The home and all the bedrooms were ample and had plenty of space! Brooke, the property manager, was very prompt in her responses whenever I had a question. The instructions for access to the property were also very clear! I loved that the kitchen was fully stocked too! Everything was perfect.

Stylish and Comfy Spot

by Ivy on 07/17/2018
We completely enjoyed our stay here! We were in town for a conference, and the Urban Homestead was a beautiful place to return to after a long day. Everything was as described, and we even checked out to of the amazing local spots, and walked to the restaurants and shops on South Congress one evening. The host was super responsive to our questions, even late at night and early in the morning. Thank you. We highly recommend this lovely farmhouse.

Great place in downtown Austin

by Ryan on 07/17/2018
We recently stayed for a long weekend and had a great experience. The location cannot be topped, and the apartment was in great condition and fit our needs perfectly. Management was very friendly and responsive to questions. We'll definitely stay again, and highly recommend.

First Class Home

by Douglas on 07/17/2018
This is a truly first class home in a lovely, quiet neighborhood. We were very close to all the action in Austin, but also able to enjoy a nice relaxed family weekend as well. We'll be back!


by Ellen on 07/17/2018
Comfortable, clean and cheerful apartment. We didn't prepare meals but the kitchen had all the basics (coffee, tea, sweetener). Lots of counter space in bathroom and a super shower. Plenty of fresh, high quality towels. Comfortable beds. Extra closet space and hangers available. Convenient washer and dryer. Turn right out of the driveway and walk two blocks to Confituras-excellent biscuits, jams and coffee (look for the red door). We walked to downtown and to South Congress, but Uber was also available. Great walking trails nearby at Barton Springs!


by Ashley on 07/17/2018
Our group was visiting Austin for a girls' weekend. The house fit 7 of us perfectly. There are nearby shops, restaurants, grocery and liquor stores. We Ubered most of the time and to get downtown. The property is beautiful and was very clean. The management company was very accommodating, even moving things around to allow us an early check-in. Definitely recommend!

Highly Recommend

by Don on 07/17/2018
We would rebook future stays at this location without hesitation. We highly recommend it.

Our favorite place to stay

by Sandra on 07/17/2018
The Mellow Yellow is our favorite place to stay when we are visiting in Austin. We have rented this place several times and have always enjoyed our stay. We love the decor and the unit is always spotless and well maintained and an added bonus is a fenced backyard with a BBQ and outdoor furniture. All the comforts of home!

A Perfectly Charming Home

by Cindy on 07/17/2018
Tarrytown Townhouse was a lovely and very clean home. It had everything we needed, and it was in a great location! We very much enjoyed our stay! Would recommend this property for a wonderful stay in Austin, close to everything and in a quiet and charming neighborhood. Our manager checked in with us to make sure all our needs were met. Thank you. We hope to return to Tarrytown Townhouse again.

Great Stay

by Kelly on 07/17/2018
Our daughter got married in Austin last week and we rented the Mellow Yellow since it was close to the venue and other amenities. It was absolutely perfect and extremely well-appointed with everything we needed. Weddings can be hectic for families and this place provided a relaxing retreat to come back to. Emerson Guest Properties was very accommodating and professional....I highly recommend staying here and would do it again!

Wedding Weekend

by Anna on 07/17/2018
It was perfect!

Amazing and Tranquil Retreat

by Gabriel on 07/17/2018
We had a great weekend at this property just outside of Austin. Our group had a total of 9 guys and we enjoyed a weekend of grilling and cooking by the awesome pool / hot tub area in the unit's backyard. We were able to get Ubers pretty easily when we headed into the city. The main living room and kitchen area is great to hang out and relax in and there was more than enough seating for our group. The management company was very professional and responded to our issues quickly during our stay. Really loved our stay. Thanks!

Austin for a wedding

by Carly on 07/17/2018
Great place for two couples, especially with the two separate bathrooms and plenty of closet space. Great having laundry in-unit, especially if staying for more than a few days. Good, central location.

Excellent Home Base

by Kim on 07/17/2018
My girlfriend and I met in Austin to celebrate a special birthday. We rented the Mellow Yellow #1 duplex and it was perfect for our needs. The space was clean and well organized, the location is convenient, and the check-in and check-out process is efficient. Thank you for a great stay.

Great location in downtown Austin!

by Sequoya on 07/17/2018
We had an awesome time, the location was absolutely perfect for everything that we wanted to experience in Austin. Great food, entertainment, and sights were just a walk away. The skyline from the roof at night was breathtaking.Overall the condo was clean, well stocked, and comfortable. I don't think I have slept so well in a long time.

Cozy and Comfortable

by Denise on 07/17/2018
Comfortable and clean condominium in a nice walkable location. Not downtown but a $6 Uber ride or 2-mile walk to get there. Bed is a comfortable and clean memory foam bed.

Lovely Stay in a Lovely Neighborhood

by Deanne on 07/17/2018
My friend and I really enjoyed our stay here. It was a very homey vacation rental. We were very relaxed. It was really beautiful walking around the neighborhood with all the old live oak trees. The rental unit itself was very comfortable. We had everything that we needed and the beds were very comfortable. And it was easy walking distance to South Congress,1st Avenue and the hike and bike trail. The Travis Heights neighborhood was very quiet.

Gorgeous Getaway

by Pamela on 07/17/2018
This home was a gorgeous addition to our mini vacay in Austin. This house is well kept and did not disappoint. I have stayed in a couple of homes on the HomeAway site that just did not match up with the photos that were presented. This home is all that and much more!

Could not have been better...

by Kate on 07/17/2018
We booked the house for a long weekend/family wedding. The house was perfect for big family gatherings and within easy walking distance of the park.


by Pete on 07/17/2018
Great - Everything was clean and nice, we didn't need anything. Good location. A plus was the bottle of oil and vinegar and the salt and pepper so we didn't have to buy those for just a few days.

Neat little studio cabin!

by Ivan on 07/17/2018
Located in a great location (minutes away from restaurants, downtown). Clean and has everything we needed.

Mom's Weekend/UT

Loved the house. No clutter, clean, cool and perfect for me and my daughter. Lovely neighborhood. We walked everywhere and took Ubers to our dinner location. They did allow us to check-out an hour later which was awesome. Great back yard and perfect weather.

Perfect for a friend getaway!

by Deirdre on 07/16/2018
A friend and I stayed here for a few days and had a great time. Quiet neighborhood, ample street parking, short walk to some great restaurants/food trucks and the Alamo Drafthouse. The house was nicely decorated and comfortable.


by Kimberly on 07/16/2018
The house was immaculate, comfortable, and perfectly located for everything we wanted to do. Yes, you can hear the bar patrons across the street, but we slept through it just fine. There are white noise machines if you're sensitive to the outside noise. The house has all the basics one would need on holiday. We will definitely be back!


by Mari Ann on 07/16/2018
Everything about this rental was perfect. It has two nice sized bedrooms, with comfortable beds. The kitchen was very functional, and there's even a gas grill on the back porch. Also, management graciously came and let me back in when I managed to lock myself out! The location is great for quick access to the Palmer Event Center, and it's in a nice neighborhood with a park within short walking distance. It was a great experience!

Cozy, Clean and Convenient

by Olga on 07/16/2018
Our first booking through HomeAway, and we were extremely pleased. What a charming home, clean and well stocked with comfortable backyard and grill (charcoal). The enclosed screened-in living area off the kitchen and dining table on deck made the home feel much roomier. Conveniently located to nearby shopping and walking distance (30 min. walk) to LBJ Library at University of Texas. Highly recommend!

Highly Recommend

by Russ on 07/16/2018
My wife and I really enjoyed our stay! The townhouse is very nice, and in an excellent location! Brooke was a very responsive host, and made sure our stay was pleasant! We would highly recommend this home.

Adorably quaint little property

by Laura on 07/16/2018
I loved this property! It was the perfect size and location, and much more affordable for me than nearby hotels.


by Brian on 07/16/2018
Great place to stay in the heart of Austin! Clean and comfortable!

Girl's Trip

by Joanna on 07/16/2018
5 friends from all over the world met up for the weekend. It was absolutely perfect.

Perfect Austin Getaway

by Sarah on 07/16/2018
The house was gorgeous and very well-equipped. The location was very convenient for Barton Springs, South Congress, and downtown.

Great Quiet Escape

by Kira on 07/16/2018
We had a great stay at this Hyde Park cottage; cozy, close to everything in Austin and great amenities!

Sweet Repeat

by Janet on 07/16/2018
This was my second stay in this delightful cottage. I was happy to discover that one year later, it was still fresh, immaculately clean and well-maintained.

Perfect Location

by Deniz on 07/16/2018
House was cozy, clean and absolutely perfect for what we were looking for. A comfortable bolt hole for our Austin adventures! Loved the outside area and the kitchen was equipped enough to make us feel like it was a home away from home.

Awesome Home

by Adrienne on 07/16/2018
The home was perfectly located and decorated to enjoy a family get-together celebrating our daughter's college graduation.

A gem of a unit in a gem of a neighborhood!

by Ann on 07/16/2018
We loved The Nest! It was beautifully designed, spotless and very well appointed. It was hard to leave each day to explore. It was comfortable and feared unexpected amenities that we deeply appreciated. You can walk to downtown, but don't forget the neighborhood, which offers great live music and wonderful dining experiences only a few blocks away.

Fabulous Austin Bungalow

by Linda Richardson on 07/16/2018
We stayed here during UT graduation weekend. We needed a central location with private space for my 90 year old parents, as well as a nice dining/kitchen area for a family dinner. It was perfect! We especially enjoyed coffe on the back porch swing, and living room for conversations. The sound of the nearby freeway was not an issue at all - and our hosts were responsive with any questions we had.

Central Austin Comfort

by H.T. on 07/16/2018
Peaceful Tarrytown townhouse was the perfect rental location for a quiet interlude between busy events in the city. Our party of 5 enjoyed the tastefully decorated and comfortable living room to relax. The bedroom layout was fine for grandparents to stay downstairs with private bath while we stayed upstairs in the larger master, sharing the Hollywood bath with our son who stayed in the second upstairs bedroom. The beds were super comfortable, as were all linens. We appreciated the covered carport and easy access in and out of the house. I think we found our new home way from home in Austin!

Awesome house!

by Allison on 07/16/2018
We loved staying at this house for our recent trip to Austin. It had so much character and worked perfectly for our group of 5.

Perfect for us

by Barbara on 07/16/2018
Clarksville Cottage provided a great location near downtown Austin for us to use as a base while helping our daughter with her move to Austin. Lovely home, beautifully renovated, spotlessly clean, and the perfect size for a family of 2-4. Definitely check out the screened porch, the deck with barbeque and the backyard firepit area! Rental management staff were super-helpful, even responding quickly on a Saturday evening when I had a minor issue.

Austin Weekend

by Andrew on 07/16/2018
House was fantastic w/ location 2 blocks off south Congress Ave. Many restaurants, bars & shops within walking distance. Lots of room for the 6 of us.

Family trip for 4

by Lindsey on 07/16/2018
We had a great stay. Perfect amount of space for our family (2 little boys). The house was clean and well-equipped. Loved the neighborhood. Close to everything, but still quiet. Host was very responsive to any questions.

Great space for a girls' weekend!

by Maranda on 07/16/2018
Absolutely loved the space provided and the pictures don't do justice of the size. Otherwise great experience with the property and ease of use!

Perfect Place

by Carolyn on 07/16/2018
This place was very clean and a great location for the activities we had planned for downtown Austin. We arrived at night and they left a couple house lights on for us to make our arrival super cozy. It was well stocked with household items such as plenty of towels, kitchen items, an iron and ironing board. The neighborhood seemed very safe and the neighbors were very friendly as they took their dogs and children in walks in the morning and evenings. It was close to delicious restaurants. We would stay here again if we end up in Austin.

Beautiful little place!

by Sarah on 07/16/2018
This place is fantastic! Super clean and just enough space for two people. I also loved the little patio at the door and being able to see the city right from the windows. The downtown area is right down the street, so if you don't mind walking a little then it's the perfect location. Just a heads up, if it's your first time in Austin they may not have bags available at some grocery stores and shops due to a plastic bag ban. I didn't realize it until I was already at the store, but found some reusable bags available in one of the cabinets later on. A couple of the best things I loved about this place is the gated parking and the shower!


by Deanna on 07/16/2018
Lovely stay. The place is perfectly decorated. Would highly recommend to others.

A Perfect Family Retreat

by Patrick on 07/16/2018
My family and I live in the same South Austin neighborhood and have rented several different properties for visiting relatives. None have come close to matching Mellow Yellow #1. It's clean, well appointed, and with 2 sizable bedrooms, has the space everyone needs. My 70-something mother and aunt found it absolutely perfect. And the property management is simply fantastic! We ran into an issue with the lock code not working on check-in. Despite it being a holiday afternoon, our call was answered immediately and the issue resolved within moments. No question, we'll be reserving this property for every future out-of-town guest!


by Meredith on 07/16/2018
Simply 'lovely!'

Austin stay

by Christel on 07/16/2018
Had a great time with the East Lynn Charmer. Perfect for our travel needs, and very clean. It's a great space, and a perfect location being to bars and restaurants, as well as a short Uber ride to 6th street. Property management team was very accommodating to our needs as we arrived early to Austin. Would definitely recommend this spot!

So close to everything!

by Tracy on 07/16/2018
This house was so close to all the activities we had planned while in Austin. Everything was very clean, comfortable and well stocked. We will definitely stay here again when we visit Austin!

Peaceful, stylish and conveniently located!

by Kimberly on 07/16/2018
I stayed here for 9 days to visit old friends, and to work on final revisions of my book, which was due to my editor at the end of my stay. This studio was absolutely perfect: quiet, comfortable, and close to campus and tons of great restaurants, sno-cones, Alamo Drafthouse, shops at Mueller, etc. The space itself was clean, stylish, and well-appointed with dishes, utensils, linens, a hair dryer, alarm clock, etc. The a/c was perfect, even when summer temperatures soared. Check in/out was simple and the keyless entry was very convenient. I had an extremely productive, pleasant stay and will absolutely recommend this place to friends--I'm looking forward to staying here again soon.

Perfect place for our trip!

by Christa on 07/16/2018
We stayed here while visiting friends in Austin for a week. The location was perfect for everything we needed. A short walk brought us to 6th Street or to the lake. The size of the apartment for two of us was perfect. It was clean, well maintained, and a perfect location. We would highly recommend it!!!

Quaint Little Bungalow

by Deborah on 07/16/2018
We really enjoyed the house. I wish I could find a house just like that in NC when I retire. It was clean, open and well maintained. If it wasn't so hot in Austin I would definitely rent it again.

Loved it!

by Maylan on 07/16/2018
Beautiful house, and great location! The management company was wonderful taking care of our requests, some of which were admittedly very last minute! Would highly recommend!!!

Beautiful Home - Perfect for big group!

by Ashley on 07/16/2018
Perfect size for our group of 8 for a bachelorette party. Management was more than helpful and quick to respond. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely stay at this house again.

Great Place!

by Muj on 07/16/2018
Close to downtown. The amenities are great. I recommend this place!

Perfect Weekend River Trip

by Alicia on 07/16/2018
Luna Rio was absolutely beautiful and worked perfectly with group. The kitchen was amazing and was stocked for anything you needed. We cooked and grilled both nights. The house was spotless when we arrived. The beds were all comfortable. The outside porches, hot tub, and hammocks... Just perfect. We had a wonderful weekend and we are planning next year's trip to include Luna Rio.


by Nicholas on 07/16/2018
This home is the perfect spot for a weekend getaway. Located just 3-4 minutes from downtown Austin, you are close to everything. The bedrooms are very spacious and the kitchen was fully stocked. We will definitely come back to this home!

Comfy and Beautiful Place Close To Downtown

by Diana on 07/16/2018
I was in Austin for the first time for a convention, and it was my first VRBO type of experience. This apt. was just a 10 min. walk to the convention center. I did this walk back/forth several times a day, in July, without a problem, so if you are going to a convention, this is a great option.

The apt. was clean, bright, and comfy. I had a problem getting into the door, and the previous occupant hadn't left the key to the gate behind, but the property managers responded quickly. I second other reviewers recommendation of Cenote, the coffee/cafe place just two blocks away. Fantastic. The main house is also rentable. I saw some reviews talk about the noise from the highway, but with the exception of some sirens on occasion, it didn't bother me at all. This is a gentrifying neighborhood, but as a single woman, I never felt uncomfortable. I did take Lyft back to the place at night (readily available, and cheap too). If I am ever back in Austin, this is where I will stay.

Great Stay

by Bryan on 07/13/2018
This is a good choice for Austin. House has been completely remodeled. High ceilings, large ceiling fans with remote, large kitchen, bathroom for each bedroom and large master bath are just some of the amenities. Also has a dining room that seats 6, large kitchen with new appliances and plenty of countertop space, built in work desk area, laundry room with new washer/dryer and wine fridge. Bottom line, this place is spotless, has new everything, is much larger than you would think and close to everything. I will be staying here again.

First Class

by Douglas on 03/28/2018
This is a first truly class home in a lovely, quiet neighborhood but still in close proximity to all of the Austin action. We'll stay there again.

Perfect Little Spot in Austin!

by Erika on 03/23/2018
My husband and I spent a few days here and found it to be absolutely ideal for our Austin visit. It was clean, comfortable, and the perfect location. The house is within walking distance to lots of bars, cafes and restaurants, and an easy Uber ride to spots like South Congress; a great way to experience ge city like a local. The service from the folks managing the property was great, too. I would totally recommend, and would absolutely stay here again!


by Carol on 03/22/2018
We enjoyed our stay so much at the Greenlawn rental. The home was well stocked with everything you would possibly need, including coffee which was a very nice and unexpected touch. Plenty of dishware and seating for entertaining. The beds were beyond comfortable. The decorations and furniture were very nicely done and appealing. We enjoyed the back deck and patio when it was warm, which was very pleasant. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly and close enough to make it easy to get to the city. We would definitely rent here again.
