We attended graduation and had family from all over visiting. This place provided the comfortable gathering place for 16 of us to gather for meals, relaxing by the pool, and with multiple living areas for several different activities. We had 8 adults comfortably sleep here and share the 3 bathrooms. It was centrally located in Austin so travel was easy and convenient.

This property was an odd one. Great location, cute exterior, and plenty of rooms and space...However,

-We killed somewhere between 8-10 roaches in our 4 day stay.
-The utensil drawer in the kitchen is broken.
-Pool was filthy when we arrived. They cleaned it 2 days in, should have been cleaned the day we arrived.
-No lighters/matches for the house, the mosquito candles were all burned up, making the pool use nearly impossible unless you wanted to get eaten alive.
-Wifi didn't work when we arrived, had to sit on hold forever to get help with the wifi.

We were in contact with the 24 hour line, but it looks like these are issues people have had before. I don't understand why these things could not be fixed. Also, the roach issue is 100 percent unacceptable. We called and they quickly attempted to resolve the issue by taking some money off the price of the stay. A nice young man also came to spray around the house because pest control couoldn't come until next week. That is appreciated, but just get cleaned it up already.

And, fix the drawer already, and get rid of the roach infestation. It's not acceptable.

The location was great, and the place was spacious, I think it might be time to redo the decor in the house. Both couches seem to be broken in some way.

Would not stay here again, such a shame too for such a cute house.

We went to Austin to celebrate a bachelorette party. This house was the perfect size and in the perfect location. The pool was great for a day of relaxing in the sun!

TurnKey is the only way to lodge and travel. Gorgeous home, I loved the tablet that had all of the information we could possibly need. The home was spacious, and very well laid out. Great location as well. Wonderful neighborhood. Thank you TurnKey and homeowners for making our weekend so special!

Overall the house was nice, however there was a significant mosquito problem making it impossible to enjoy the pool area. The house was lovely, bedrooms spacious. Suggest spraying the outside for mosquitos in the future as every family member left the home with 10 + bites on their legs.

We spent a week in Austin during the month of August and it was great! We spent most our time in the screened-in porch and pool, then at night the air-conditioning made things super comfortable to sleep. The house is really nice, looks just like the pics... the rooms are large and the beds are comfortable. We will definitely come back, and happily recommend to anyone considering a stay in Austin. Couple of things to be aware of,.. unlike some Airbnb's, there were zero condiments leftover from previous guests, so no oil, no salt/pepper, no nothing. There are plenty of dishes but we're used to having a FEW basics upon arrival. No big deal, we purchased at the store but make sure to add to your list. Also, there is only cable, and no DVD player so if you are expecting Netflix or Amazon Prime etc... then think again. The neighborhood is quiet and really pleasant and everything we wanted to do was close at hand. We'll be back!

I came here with a group of 8 friends for a bachelorette party and we loved it. The house was clean and the pool area was perfect for going out during the day. The house had some good restaurants that were only a mile or so away and was only about a 15 minute uber ride from downtown which was perfect for going out. Would definitely stay here again if I came back to Austin.
Pamela W. November 20, 2017
The house was nice however, the large cockroaches were troublesome! There were several each day that were in the bathrooms and kitchen.
Natalie L. October 5, 2015
This house was amazing, and so much better than we expected! The house was clean when we arrived and the layout was perfect for our girls weekend. Parking in the driveway was tight so try to carpool if you can. The master bath is beautiful and the pool was awesome - so relaxing. Great location -- near restaurants, bars, and not too far from downtown.
Adam S. February 27, 2018
It was top-notch. We went in February but the real value would be when it's warmer outside and you can enjoy the awesome backyard, patio and pool. The only issue was getting the remote control fans to cooperate. Anytime somebody turned their light off in one of the guest rooms it would turn the other light on or off as well. Leading to fights in the middle of the night over whose light would be on vs off.
Anonymous January 10, 2018
We really enjoyed the fact that we could all hang out in the living/dining room together as there was plenty of seating for everyone. Would definitely stay here again.

Nice house in a very good location. Well maintained.
Nicole Z. May 14, 2018
Very pleased with our stay at his Austin house near downtown! The house was clean and a great size for our group of 10 for a bachelorette trip we took in April. The house was clean and spacious. We had a minor issue that was resolved immediately when we called!
Would definitely recommend this house to anyone traveling to Austin-quick uber ride to downtown!

We enjoyed this neat updated home for a few days away in Austin. Pool was a very nice feature with our children. Plenty of beds and baths for family of 7. Lots of room for game nights And relaxing.
Anonymous March 21, 2018
The home was beautiful, very spacious, & very very clean. Everything in the house was perfect except the hot water didn’t work in the master bathroom our entire stay. That caused us to be later than we expected to our events due to us only having 2 bathrooms with hot water.

I rented this home for the week and weekend of my wedding in Austin, TX. It was absolutely fantastic. It was clean, the rooms were large and comfortable, the pool was beautiful, and the kitchen was ready for a lot of cooking all week. We had every convenience available to us and the location worked out perfectly for us. It is right off of mopac which made it very easy to get around. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone. Great stay!!!!

My friends and I had a fantastic time at the Butterfly Fly House in Austin! The house was beautiful and modern and the pool was a great place for everyone to hang out. The house is in a quiet neighborhood but with easy access to Downtown Austin.
Patty M. January 13, 2016
The home was great! There were ample places for everyone to sleep, eat, and visit. The home was clean and well maintained.
Juan D. November 2, 2015
The house was perfect for 3 couples. The biggest drawback was the barking dog next door. Very annoying, especially very early in the morning. The dog also barked a lot when we tried using the back yard area.
Britni W. July 25, 2017
House was spacious, clean, and super cute. Lots of light, even had a sunroom. Pool area was big! Easily sleeps 10 comfortably! Close enough to call an Uber for anywhere.
Eden P. August 22, 2017
We loved it!

This house was amazing! Beautiful, kept up, and had amazing amenities (like a pool!) Perfect for a bachelorette party weekend. The only weird thing was the light situation. Each room has a light that is remote-controlled. We spent 30 minutes trying to turn ours off - but it would just turn on someone else's light! (How many millennials does it take to turn off a light, right?) Eventually we had to just turn the bulbs themselves off from the top. Other than that, and a couple of roaches, the house was perfect!
Brittany W. October 24, 2017
Convenient location and good for groups.
Anonymous November 15, 2017
We were there for a bachelorette party in late October. The group very much enjoyed this rental and felt comfortable, relaxed and at home. Bedrooms were laid out well and everything flowed nicely for a group of 9. The location is just a short drive to downtown and there are even a few places to eat or go out within walking distance (a mile or so). Nice neighborhood. Loved Austin and found this to be a great place to base out of and relax back into!

This was the perfect house for 10 friends to get together to celebrate a long weekend in Austin.

The house comfortably slept 10 people. Both the house and pool was well maintained and equipped with everything we needed (i.e. plenty of towels, cutlery, bedding etc).

We found the location relatively central and in a nice neighbourhood, with short / cheap uber rides into town, or to the river. However I would recommend hiring at least one car to run errands.

A couple of recommendations for future guests: to improve the WIFI, add some sun lounges, enhance the airconditioning so you can turn it down a little more and importantly, improve the ability to give early check ins - late check outs (checking out at 10am is too early).

All in all we loved our time in Austin, and I would recommend this place again to friends.
Anonymous May 17, 2017
We loved the house layout, outside area with the decks, shade, tables and pool. There was plenty of room for a casual get together with friends and family one afternoon. I read on the reviews about the ice maker not working, so we did bring our own ice. We would stay here again.

We were supposed to be in Key West but Hurricane Irma had other ideas. We found this house at the last minute and took a chance. The home is exactly as represented! Lovely, quiet neighborhood, tree-lined streets, and 10 minutes from every part of Austin... location is everything! The house and property were immaculate. Clean, manicured and very inviting. We felt like we were in our own home. The bedrooms and bathrooms were large and updated. The Master shower could host a party...very big! The pool and patio were the perfect size, but we spent most of our time on the screened in porch. The whole place is an oasis in the middle if the city. We also found some new and amazing restaurants within 5 minutes of the property. We had an issue with the digital lock, but management was on site in 10 minutes to resolve it. We will stay here again, and very soon!

The house is in a quiet neighborhood. Home is just as described, very nice. Loved the pool and the sunroom was appreciated when we needed a break from the heat. We did have a problem with roaches, killed one every day so the house needs to be treated. Also the trash can was full when we got there so we had to stack ours on top. These are minor issues and did not affect our enjoyment of the house. I would stay here again.
Griselda C. July 9, 2014
Our guests and myself could not have asked for a greater place to stay. The house is beautiful, the pool and backyard are amazing and the property is located in a great neighborhood, with easy access to Mopac.
I think my favorite part was the screened in porch and deck, which had a great design and feel. All the rooms have their own charm and wonderful views of the backyard and even one with its own patio. The master bedroom and shower were awesome! The pictures do not do it justice.

If given the chance we will definitely stay here again. :)
Nicki F. September 22, 2017
Very relaxing, well equipped home. Our family especially enjoyed the outdoor area with the screened porch, the outdoor tables and the pool. I would recommend and would return here.
Angela S. September 24, 2014
It was a beautiful house, plenty of room, neat and clean. Everyone there really thought the place was beautiful and enjoyed their stay. It was comfortable and inviting. I would definitely stay there again.

This is a great little house in a quiet residential neighborhood. Modern and clean, with a great master suite. Location-wise it is convenient to get around due to proximity of a freeway entrance.

The Butterfly House was the perfect fit for our mulit-generation family vacation! The house was even more amazing in person than in the photos - clean and well maintained with lots of great amenities, comfy beds, spacious rooms, and kid friendly in a quiet neighborhood! The gorgeous private pool (complete with pool toys) and amazing outdoor living spaces (plural!) were a big part of our daily fun at home. The kitchen was well appointed with all the essentials tools and modern appliances. The owners have thought of everything! Austin is a such a fun place to be with lots of things to do, and yet you could easily spend the whole time just at this house, it's that wonderful! Our family of 7 didn't want to leave, and would definitely come back again!
James S. October 15, 2014
There were 7 of us in our group, and there were plenty of places to sleep and lots of room to move around the house. The kitchen was perfect, it had all the things that we needed to cook our meals. All in all, it was a great trip this year, and this house was a big part of it. Being at a festival for a weekend, you want to come home and either party or rest after each night. This house was perfect for that.

This house is in good condition, well located, on a quiet street near where we needed to be. The rental process was perfect, check-in easy, and the management company readily available by phone. However, it does not have enough pots and pans, dish towels, and serving bowls and utensils to service the amount of people that would use a 4 bedroom rental. One of the showers did not work (small item - the diverter was broken) and the company walk told about it twice but did not fix it during our 5 day stay. That was a hassle rotating people in and out of the master shower. The place was relatively clean when we arrived but there was a broken glass on the courtyard, crusted food on some pans, and the bath floor mat was obviously not washed. These are small items and inexpensive for the owner to fix but it is the small items that make a rental good or only so-so. But the one issue that is particularly irksome is that the owner does not provide propane for the grill, so bring your own. They tell you its "first come first served" or "honor system" but that just translates into "we don't provide the propane". After spending ~400/night for a place, another buck or two for propane is not the problem. Finding a propane dealer and driving around to refill the tank just as you need to cook for a large crowd is not proper procedure for a rental. If you provide a grill then provide what it takes to operate a grill. Don't take this review as the usual rantings from a normally complaining customer. We have rented over 20 times from VRBO and this is the first negative review we have ever given. The house is OK from a big perspective but small things matter.
Carlotta M. September 21, 2014
The house was fabulous! Location was excellent as well. The weather didn't permit us to use the pool as much as we planned but we did enjoy sitting and lounging beside it.
wayne f. April 7, 2015
we had an excellent time.everything was fact it was so nice that we had our son's marriage by the pool instead of the courthouse.only concern was no supply of bathroom tissue and paper towels.otherwise our whole time there was a delight and a truly great experience. we loved it!
Peyton K. November 17, 2014
Lovely house highly recommend. Very clean and accommodating. Great location.
Tonya L. June 2, 2015
The house was set up perfectly for our girl's getaway. We had 8 of us total, and it was the perfect amount of space. Loved the screened in porch for a couple of rainy days, and the pool was great to cool off when the sun was out. Close enough to downtown and some great eating spots. Uber worked perfectly! We did have an issue with hot water that wasn't dealt with quickly, but was fixed a couple of days into our stay.
Brad V. July 1, 2015
House is beautiful and spacious in a great location. pool is extremely nice.
The kitchen needs a few more items to be working perfectly but that is probably my only complaint. Overall, very satisfied. Loved the little private deck off one of the rooms.
John F. January 12, 2015
Very clean, lots of space and lots of character! My family stayed here for 3 days over christmas (8 of us) and wish we could have stayed longer!
Caroline L. December 16, 2014
This house was absolutely perfect. It has been totally renovated and our stay was great! The house is beautiful and we were very comfortable throughout our stay. The neighborhood was very nice and the location of the house was convenient for us. The host of our house was super. They were there every step of the way. The house was very clean. I have absolutely no complaints. We were very pleased with our stay at this lovely house.
Christine D. May 12, 2015
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The house is extremely modern and very cute. We had 9 people staying for a bachlorette party and we had more than enough room. Each of the 3 bathrooms in the house has a shower, which made it very convenient. Austin now has Uber, which made it convenient getting around for the nightlife. Overall, we were very pleased with our stay.
Cayla L. February 11, 2015
We loved staying in this beautiful home for our girls getaway weekend. Whether gathered on the couches for storytelling or sunning on the back deck we had a blast.
Anonymous August 26, 2015
The house was awesome and very clean. The dishwasher was out of order but we did dishes by hand. No big deal. The swimming pool was the highlight of the party weekend. The house had tons of swim towels and pool floats. All the girls had a wonderful time and are still talking about it. We want to rent it every year, but the neighbors probably don't. The house pretty much had everything we needed. Including ping long balls for drinking games!
Lynn H. April 10, 2015
The remodel of this simple ranch is well done - almost worth the stay just to see the project! There is lovely outdoor space, a screened-in porch and good interior living space. We were cyclists so the large (converted garage) storage area was a real bonus.)

Neighborhood had easy access to shopping and restaurants (and bike routes).

Hope to go back and stay again. A few things we hope will be addressed:
Patio furniture and grill were not clean
Neighbor next door has a barky dog that was a nuisance when we used the pool
The only coffee pot/maker was a Keurig
No sponges, kitchen towels
Anonymous May 5, 2015
We LOVED the house and the location and the pool! However, we had so many issues with appliances! I spent an hour on the phone to TurnKey one night figuring out why there was no power in the kitchen. Finally we realized it was the circuit, so we flicked the breaker back on, which made the stove try to keep ignite itself. So since that was broken, we had to turn it all back off to avoid a fire, leaving us with no microwave or oven all weekend, which really put a wrench in some of our eating plans. Then, the master bath toilet/shower drain stopped working, so toilet was backed up and shower wouldn't drain.

HOWEVER- the property manager's (Turn Key) were swift to help and did everything they can. They sent out people to come and fix the draining issue on Saturday Morning, and although we couldn't fix the stove/microwave/oven, they did everything they could to make sure we exhausted all possible solutions.

Although it wasn't a flawless stay, I still loved the house, the location, and the pool- and if everything was fixed, it would be even better.
Andrew R. October 2, 2015
Great home for a family visit to Austin. Convenient location, quiet street, very comfortable. My only criticism would be the outdoor grill area (grill needed major cleaning & no gas was provided), and the rug and chairs in this area were not in good shape. Aside from that, bedrooms were comfortable, living space was functional and comfortable, and pool was great. I would recommend this home.
Tina C. September 10, 2015
My friends and I had a reunion in Dallas and it was wonderful at this house. Everything that we needed was at the house. We had 4 couples stay (one couple had twin beds) and there was plenty of room. They even labeled all the lights so its easier to figure out! Since the north side of Austin is where most of the happening things are, it was very convenient.
