June 2017

Darlene M. The house is in a quiet residential neighborhood conveniently located to the action on S. Congress. The beds were very uncomfortable the first night. The property managers responded right away with tempurpedic mattress pads, which made the beds much more comfortable for the rest of our stay.


July 2017

The house was clean and had everything we needed for a four day stay. This house is located in a nice neighborhood. The location was convenient to S. Congress and 6th street. Easy access to all tourist attractions. The management company was easy to deal with and answered all my questions. Would definitely recommend this house and will stay here again if we visit Austin again.

Sarah M. The house is centrally located, has everything you need, and has a yard which is great if you have a dog. It also has cable TV which seems like a rarity with short term rentals. The only problem were the bed linens. The sheets were 100% synthetic and shiny - resembling a shower curtain liner. The bedspreads / blankets look like they've never been cleaned. I used my own bed linens. That said, Turnkey was amazing. Super responsive and really nice.


November 2017

Nina B. My two sisters and l had a fabulous stay in this cottage. We felt right at home, the space was so welcoming. We enjoyed the location, and walked the short distance to South Congress Street several times. There is good food, drink, ice cream, shopping, and entertainment close by. Travel downtown in a Lyft was no problem and a quick ride. Because we were looking for bridesmaid dresses, our exploring took us a bit outside the center, and we were glad to have a rental car for flexibility.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and appreciated the well-appointed kitchen and cleanliness of the space. I would absolutely stay here again!
