Thanks Amanda. We had a great time for my brother's bachelor party. We were greeted with some fresh baked cookies, showed around, and then had the whole place for the weekend. The pool was a highlight- we spent lots of time lounging and playing pool volleyball. The firepit is down next to the river and we had a nice bonfire well into the night. Being able to swim, kayak, and fish in the river was also lots of fun. The ride into Austin is about $30-40 on Uber, and we were able to get Uber's no problem.

This home is on the river and has lots of large rooms so you do not feel confined. Our stay coincided with Hurricane Harvey and Ashley offered to extend our stay for free if we were not able to fly out as planned. It was a great weekend.

Really nice place for a group. Not great for a group bigger than 8 as there are only three private rooms and the rest of the "beds" are futons in the living room. We made it work and had a good time. The pool area is through a gate in the other backyard but you have full access and it's only a tiny bit inconvenient. Amanda gave us full privacy and was helpful. Would have liked to know there were cats living outside in the outdoor living area by the pool. We had guests with allergies and the cats were jumping on our food on the counter outside while we were serving food. The kayaks had holes in them so double check before you take them out! Over all a nice place for a big group and we had a good experience.

We stayed at Amanda's place for the weekend of our annual fantasy football draft and it was one of our favorite locations. Amanda was an excellent host. She was very communicative and greeted us with homemade chocolate chip cookies upon arrival. We enjoyed kayaking and fishing in the river, but the pool area and covered patio was our favorite. We had our draft poolside in the covered patio. The was plenty of wifi and it's easily accommodated all 10 of us (including our beer coolers and a margarita machine). The pool is beautiful and great for either relaxing or some water volleyball. I highly recommend this Airbnb for anyone that needs a great spot to host a large group of people.

The house and yard were super clean and well manicured. We all had a great time and had plenty of space for everything we wanted to do for our small party. Amanda was very nice and after check in she gave us plenty of privacy. Our dogs had a great time running around the yard of the house we stayed in. The pool and back porch area are fantastic but are part of a separate house in the next door yard. This is where the owners live and stay while you are here. It wasn't an issue but should be made clear before renting the property. The river area is very nice and accessible as well. We had a great time!

Amanda's home has all the beauty of Texas with the comforts of having a major city near by. The accommodations are more than what most offer. Kayak's for the river and a pool with outdoor cooking and refrigerator amenities next to the pool. This was one of the best trips with an amazing host. Amanda truly provides you with all the privacy you want. She is super responsive to any need we had. Amanda has a medal on her account for a reason. 5 Stars!!!

Our home is a hidden gem on the Colorado River and we're excited to share it with you. Our favorite way to spend a day at the house includes taking a kayak trip on the peaceful river, grilling and enjoying dinner outdoors, and watching the sun set by a bonfire.
