Left on 04/26/2014 for a stay in March 2014 | Former Austin Resident
We had a great stay here - the owners were incredibly attentive and responsive to all our questions. It is newly renovated and worked great for us for the week. We told the owners we would be bringing two kids and they set us up with a high chair, games in the closet, and even several kids movies for the Blu-Ray! We were super close to the new Children's Museum, so we ended up going there three times in the time that we were there.
There aren't any pictures of the bedrooms, but they are nice and spacious. One room has a bunk-bed with a double on the bottom and a twin on the top. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and a little desk, with two large-ish closets. We actually had another family stay with us for the weekend (for a total of 4 adults and 2 small kids) and it was a good space for all of us.
The only downfall is that it is on a fairly busy street. We were okay with this, but it means that you don't get the same neighborhood feel you would get on a more tucked away street.
I would highly recommend this house if you are interested in being on the East Side or close to Mueller. We would definitely think of this house again for future visits.
