Charming Bungalow and Gardens in a Great Location

Review submitted: March 21, 2013   Date of arrival: February 12, 2013

We really enjoyed our stay and plan to return on our next visit to Austin. A charming bungalow in a great location. We have stayed in many homes/apartments during our travels and yours is one of the nicest. Martha was also so kind and helpful.

Great, Relaxing place to stay

Review submitted: July 29, 2012   Date of arrival: June 5, 2012

This was a cute little bungalow, but plenty of room for 4 people to stay in. Nice to have the patio and little back garden too with a BBQ to cook on. They had everything we needed to cook with, towels, even blowdryer and first aide kit. Debora and Lorne were fantastic and made sure we had everything we needed. Payments were easy and refund was timely. I will definitely stay again if I have the chance.

Thankfully, Precisely as Presented Online - No surprises

Review submitted: July 20, 2012   Date of arrival: July 13, 2012

My husband and I just returned from moving our son and daughter-in-law into their new home in Austin this past weekend. While there we rented the bungalow in hopes of having a nice, quiet, clean place to resort to after wrestling with the heat of Austin and the chore of packing and unpacking. This property was one of several that fit for location and price, but had certain additional assets that caused me to choose it.

Eponymous Gardens, unlike many VRBOs listings, allowed for a 2 night minimum. I like that. Often, once you arrive you can extend your stay if needed, but not be obliged to before actually seeing the place and sleeping on the bed.

As for the house itself, I think the outdoor picture can be deceiving. The house is exceptionally clean, spacious, and airy with lots of light. Loved the front and back porches. The backyard deck w grill offered kids a good excuse to come rest a little from moving in, while Dad cooked out, creating additional memories before saying good-byes.

I suppose what surprised me THE most during our stay was how amazingly quiet it was despite the fact we were so close to downtown! A lot of “out in the country” nature sounds. And of course being greeted by a nice rain while we were there didn’t hurt any. During the day occasional neighborly visits were heard and one night beautiful music from a nearby wedding floated our way. Otherwise really felt tucked away, out in the country.

As for the bed, I have low back trouble so finding a good bed is hard for me. Though I prefer a queen or king, this one slept well enough for me. But my husband who is very picky really loved it. He's pretty picky about everything and loved everything about this house, inside and out. In fact, all of it really began to grow on both of us the longer we were there.

In a nutshell, our likes: Clean, Roomy, Light, Quiet, Good Location, Privacy, 2 screen doors w/locks, Front porch, Back deck w/ cooker and table for 4, great air conditioner, adequate parking.

Personal preferences I missed? Two bedside tables w/ lamps, rather than one as I'm a big night time reader.

By time we left we almost felt like part of the community. Homes are so much better than hotels when you can find a good one. There's something about hearing a screen door slap behind you, neighbors laughing and chatting over fences that makes you feel like you're home.

Thanks y'all! We'll be back!
