Great little house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5
This was the first trip my wife and I made to Austin together, and we loved this little house. The owners were very responsive and helpful in getting us the info needed to get into the house, and answering any of our questions. Once inside the house, they had a book together that had recommendations of restaurants, grocery stores, and other things in the area. The house was very clean and modern, and in a great location. It was a nice quiet neighborhood & we would love to stay here again. After meeting the owners, I would have no problem looking at any other property they managed.

Amazing place in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing stay at the Yellow Door. Dani and Joel have done a great job with this place and it has everything you could possibly need. It is well taken care of and looks just like the photos. The kitchen is well equipped and the screened-in porch was really nice to have. It's located in a quiet neighborhood and is close to everything. It was an easy walk or bike to Town Lake and South Congress and with quick access to I35 it is also conveniently located if you want to drive anywhere. The location is tough to beat.

Summer Lovin' SOCO Style

Summer Lovin' SOCO Style

Our family of 4 stayed at the yellow door for 8 days and 7 nights.
The house was outfitted in lovely turn of the century modern furniture. The beds and bedding were very comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked for my husband, who is a professional chef, to cook a dinner where we hosted a July 4th meal with some of our Austin friends. It was just like being at home!
The washer and dryer were great! The house was fully stocked with supplies necessary for everyday living... paper towels, toilet paper, cleaners, broom, dust pan, etc... very thoughtful indeed!
The location was perfect! We walked to see fireworks at the long center. The walk to about 20 mins one way, but was so worth it compared to the auto traffic that ensued!!

We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this to all friends who visit Austin!!

Women's Weekend Away

Women's Weekend Away
  • 5 of 5
My three best friends (we are in our early 30s) and I stayed at the Yellow Door for an Austin women’s weekend away. It was just perfect! We rented a car and it was a 5 minute drive to South Congress which turned out to be our favorite area to shop and dine, and a 10 minute drive to Barton Springs which we hit up almost every day at least for an hour to cool off. The central AC, cool floors, comfortable beds, closet space, and kitchen appliances made it a fantastic home base. We had everything we need to make coffee, wash and cut fruit and could have cooked a meal easily if there weren't so many tasty places to eat out. It was also nice that we could have done laundry but we didn't quite get around to that!

Our one desire for the Yellow Door was to have a DVD player. Our one issue with Austin (not the house) is that the cab companies lied to us about how long it would take them to pick us up, and one night we missed a dinner reservation. If it was a tad cooler we would have just walked to South Congress and flagged down a cab instead. (We didn't want to drink and drive.)

Just right!

  • 5 of 5
This is a perfect little duplex apartment in an up and coming neighborhood of Austin. The location is close to I-35 so getting around is easy. It is right there in the South Congress area so restaurants, shops and everything Austin is at your fingertips. The apartment itself is clean, modern and safe. The beds were extremely comfortable and every detail has been thought of. Our family slept so well in the evening - truly a great place to convene when you're not galavanting in this fantastic town! Thanks, Dani & Joel!!
