Lisa Van Allen purchased this house in 2015

Why Lisa Van Allen chose Austin

Great access to Austin and surrounding areas and incredible relaxing heated pool/spa patio...hang out in the loft and play pool where you can also sleep extra people...5,000 game arcade, 65 inch 4k TV with cable etc etc...sand volleyball down the will love this house!

What makes this house unique

One of very few vacation rentals in Austin with a private heated pool and spa. Even in Austin you'll want a heated pool in the fall and spring. The garage is converted to a game room for extra fun. We've got Sonos speakers, 4k TV, a 5,000 game arcade, a Ninja blender, and all the extra touches. Very classy.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We loved every square inch of this great pool house! Highly recommend it.

What a find! A wonderfully spacious house from which to explore Austin and surrounding area.

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our needs, super clean and beautifully furnished, with lots of fun things to do, and a relaxing environment in the home in between jaunts into the city. The Van Allens have thought of everything and were extraordinarily helpful and available, and great to work with. I highly recommend this property. There aren't many like it in the Austin area. Thank you for our great stay!

Perfect Girls Weekend Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We didn't really know what to expect when we drove up to the house but once we stepped inside, it completely blew the photos away! The house is great. Lisa had everything prepared for us, including the music system. Plenty of towels, sheets, etc.There were 8 of us girls and we never had a problem with space. Tons of games and activities in and out of the house. If you do not have a car, the house is within walking distance to liquor and convenient stores. The ride to downtown was a bit longer than expected but not horrible. Depending on the time of day/night and how many people you have, expect to pay anywhere between $25-$85 for a Lyft back to the house from downtown.

I would absolutely recommend staying in the house!

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for our family holiday trip. The kids loved the pool and nearby park. We loved the pool table and being able to cook and play games together in the large open area for kitchen/dining/living. I was surprised at how incredibly comfortable the bed was. The decor is surprisingly modern with an Austin theme. No cheesy/ugly hotel decor--they furnished and decorated the place thoughtfully with high quality stuff. It's a quiet suburban neighborhood, but easy to get on the highway and head downtown. I'd love to stay here again.

Beautiful, Clean Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this beautiful home. The kitchen was well equipped and I loved the open floor plan. We enjoyed some special family meals around the large dining room table. The pool table, shuffle board table, arcade game machine, foosball table, hot tub, and pool made it feel especially luxurious and resort-like. There is also a nice park nearby and some great restaurants. The hosts were helpful and friendly. We would definitely come back. Thank you!

This is an amazing property with a delightfully casual contemporary vibe!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this property, though it was for a short time. The kitchen is huge and well appointed and the living area is also huge with great seating for many.

But as inportant, the owners are great! We stayed at a different property they own for about 7 months during our move transition. They were always responIve to issues, very flexible with us and truly kind. Their property on Metric is also quite comfortable and backs to a great trail! We recommend staying with the Van Allens!

Perfect house for girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect for a bachelorette girls weekend! The house was even more spacious than it looked in the pictures. I loved the open layout of the downstairs. I hadn't realized that all 3 of the bedrooms were downstairs, which was a nice surprise, as we were all able to be near each other. The upstairs loft served as pretty much a bonus room. It's pretty private, since it's the only thing upstairs, so it could easily be used as another bedroom. The pool was amazing - perfect balance of shade and sunshine! As far as the location, it was actually much closer to everything that I expected. It was probably a 20ish minute drive downtown, which wasn't bad at all. And the neighborhood where the house is located is absolutely beautiful! There's also a lot nearby, as far as grocery stores and restaurants. We ate a great sushi place called Ka-Prow that's about 5 minutes from the house - delicious and nice atmosphere! Overall, I could not have wished for a better house for our girls weekend, I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting a private, beautiful house to stay in for an Austin trip!

The house is just steps away from one of Austin's best parks with an old settlers log cabin area that is retained to walk around and many miles of hiking and biking trails and great playgrounds. We are situated right on the major highways for hopping downtown or out to the hill country or go north to Round Rock for Outlet Mall shopping or to the Domain just south for shopping and dining and entertainment. We are happy to give you ideas and pointers if you need them.
