About Chris King and Cody Brady

(Picture shows Cody and Chris the owners) warming up after a swim in a glacier fed lake, (p.s. the temperature was about the same as Barton Springs Pool.)

That's Cody on the right and Chris on the left.

We have been happily living in South Austin since 1983. Love listening to music, swimming at Barton's and eating at our favorite taco trailers/sushi/vegetarian/Spanish tapas restaurants. We teach at local universities and would love to share our insiders tips to local spots. And restaurants Uchi, Sway, Henri's, Barlata, Lick, Barley Swine, Mellizzo's.........

Thanks for letting us know. We replaced the HVAC system and seem to have more dust since it has been changed out! We will contact our HVAC people and see if we can do anything to keep the dust down!

Love, Love this house.

  • 5 of 5

I doubt I will ever stay in another hotel. This house has sold me on VRBO and I hope this house is always available when I travel to Austin. Clean, homey and oh so convenient. Thank you Cody for allowing us to stay in your lovely home.

Great Location and Value

  • 5 of 5

Great South Lamar location within walking distance of Broken Spoke, Torchy's Tacos, and much more. And a very short drive or bike ride to downtown, South Congress, Zilker Park, etc.

Very comfortable and very well-stocked home, had everything we needed. We did have an issue with the AC the first night but it was just a clogged drain line and was fixed the next morning. I see a guest in June had a similar problem so they might want to have this checked.

I would definitely come back on a future visit to Austin.

Wonderful - just like home!

  • 5 of 5

This was a mother daughters getaway in Austin and first time using Homeaway. I was a little out of my comfort zone but it was fantastic! We were close to everything. Friday vintage shopping and dinner at East Side. Saturday hiking. We stopped at HEB and made dinner at home away from home. Fully stocked kitchen (nice cookware). If I go back to Austin, this will be my first choice!
