Terms

The Property Manager (hereafter referred to as "we", "us", or "our") provides rental management services on behalf of homeowners ("Owners") who rent their properties (including the associated fixtures and furnishings)(the “Home”) to guests (the "Guest" or "you") seeking accommodations on a short term or long term basis (collectively, the “Services”). We are the Owner's property manager and authorized agent, who will perform the Services related to your reservation. By using the Home and Services, you agree to comply with and be legally bound by the terms and conditions of this guest agreement (the "Agreement"). This Agreement only applies to short term rentals and not long term rentals, which will be governed by the specific terms of your lease agreement with us.

1. Policies: Please treat our Owner's Home with the care you would at your own home and abide by following policies:

*Behave as you would in any home in which you live, with respect for property and neighbors.
*Unless otherwise stated in the Home listing, you must be over the age of 25.
*You will be an occupant of the unit during the entire reserved period and other occupants of the Home during your stay will be family members, friends, responsible adults or children under direct adult supervision.
*Do not exceed the maximum occupancy of the Home.
*No parties, noise that can be heard beyond the home lot line or in adjacent units, or any illegal activity may occur at the Home.
*No pets are allowed unless otherwise noted for specific properties and where you have paid a pet fee in connection with your booking in advance of your reservation.
*No smoking is allowed in or around any Home.
*Check-in time is 3pm and check-out time is 10am - we will notify you via email in advance if early check-in or late check-out will be available.
*Please use common courtesy at the home by keeping it clean, reporting any problems or damages, washing dishes as used, taking garbage to the outside bins, leaving towels in the bathrooms and sheets in the bedrooms, and not re-arranging furniture.

2. Cleaning: Each home will be cleaned and inspected by third-party cleaning contractors after your departure. We ask you to help us enable the cleaning crews as much as possible. They will appreciate simple things like leaving the home tidy, running the dishwasher, starting to wash the towels, and taking out the trash.

3. Swimming Pools, Hot Tubs, or Beach: If the home that you have reserved includes a pool or hot tub, or is on a beach, these can all be obviously dangerous. Guests should observe and adhere to all rules and policies as posted at the home and supervise all children at all times. Lifeguards are not provided. Decks and patios can be slippery when wet and can result in injury to anyone who is not careful. Guest accept and assumes all risks involved in or related to the use of a pool, hot tub, beach and deck/patio areas.

4. Home Damage Waiver: Each guest will be offered an optional Damage Waiver that protects you against unintended damage done to the Property. This is not insurance, and the Damage Waiver does not apply to intentional damage done by the Guest or your guests, or excessive wear and tear due to parties, smoking, pets or otherwise, or additional cleaning charges due to stains or spills, or fines incurred by the police or HOA due to noise, excessive trash or parking, or damage over the purchased amounts of either $3,000 or $5,000. If Tenant does not wish to purchase this Damage Waiver, a security deposit of $3,000, $5,000, or greater depending on Property will be required at the time of booking. If a Home requires an additional security deposit, we will explain this to you before confirming a reservation. Guest acknowledges that any damage or fines not covered by the Damage Waiver or above the amount of any security deposit can be charged to Guest (and Guest’s card on file). The Damage Waiver can be purchased up to the day prior to your reservation but not after it has started. You do not have to purchase this Damage Waiver. Please contact the Property Manager directly at if you do not wish to purchase the Damage Waiver.

5. Excessive Wear and Tear, Noise and Occupancy: If excessive wear and tear is found for the Home, or additional cleaning is necessary due to spills, trash left on site, stains to furniture, carpeting, linens, paint, wallpaper, or flooring, Guest authorizes the Property Manager to charge Guest for additional fees. Tenant will be provided with a receipt for any additional fees incurred upon request or as required by local laws or regulations. If at any time the maximum number of the Home’s occupants is exceeded or if we receive information about excessive noise, the Property Manager has the right to evict Guest and all occupants immediately and to charge Guest a minimum service fee of $250 with no refund for the balance of the remaining reservation. If any sign of smoking is discovered Guest authorizes the Property Manager to charge Guest an additional minimum $500 cleaning fee. Unless the reservation for the Home specifically allows a pet, if any sign of a pet is discovered, then Guest authorizes the Property Manager to charge Guest an additional minimum $500 cleaning fee. The Property Manager will return any balance of a security deposit to Guest, less any charges or amounts owed by Guest, within fourteen (14) days after the end of the reservation or as otherwise required by local laws or regulations. Any charges owed by Guest may be charged by the Property Manager to Guest’s card on file in addition to seeking any relief provided by law.

6. Maintenance and Access: We have the right to enter the home at any time during guest stay and we will diligently attempt to address maintenance issues as they occur. This is an associated risk of renting a single family residence or condo. If a maintenance issue occurs that cannot be fixed in a reasonable amount of time, and significantly affects your stay; we reserve the right to refund at our discretion or offer to relocate you to another home.

Guest is responsible for replacing stocked items as they are consumed. If there is a special type of item you are accustomed to using please provide for those items by bringing them with you. Extra towels are always recommended for homes on the beach, or with a pool or hot tub.

Casita Beautiful and wonderful
Reviewed On: 7/17/2019
Charming casita--with DONKEYS! This was a beautiful, lush, landmarked property, and the casita was one of 3 smaller buildings plus the large main house. Beautiful gardens and bamboo stands surrounded the property. The casita was perfect for 2 people and had a wraparound deck that overlooked the donkeys area (bring mosquito spray!). It was very quiet other than the train that runs right behind property, but it wasn't too bothersome. Window A/C and fans kept the unit cool when 95 outside. The shower is pretty tiny and the fixtures are a bit outdated, but worked sufficiently fine. Shower had plenty of hot water. There was only one towel when we arrived, but we found a bin of extra clean towels near the washer/dryer. We had a lovely mother/daughter getaway here and especially enjoyed the petting and feeding the donkeys daily. It is located in a very convenient area, within walking distance to great coffee and food as well.

Good place to stay, convenient location First impression was good, definitely liked the place and enjoyed staying there. Found a few dead cockroaches on the kitchen and bedroom floor but easily cleaned up. Also wasn't sure if there was laundry detergent provided or not, and couldn't find a basket or anything to carry clothes to the washer. Aside from that, easy to live in and good location for going out to popular attractions. The donkeys are very cute.

Hidden Treasure in Austin Great little place with all you need to enjoy Austin!<br/>It would have been nice to know that it sits on the BNSF railroad line and trains start running at 6am and stop at 11pm. Just to be able to make sure you bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. Also, I arrived at night and it's a BIG property so make sure you bring a flashlight with you so you can find your way to the little cottage. Maybe there should be a flashlight in the actual unit too ?? For those who don't bring one? The location in Austin was fantastic. One of the best BBQ places in the city is basically at the end of the block (a 10 minute walk). Other great places to eat are just as convenient.

Great place with key code problems Beautiful historic building in a quiet location in the city. But it took 3 calls to get key codes that worked to get in.

Weekend Getaway We stayed two nights at the property. The description of the place was accurate except we found the outdoors rather overgrown with shrubbery and rather unkempt looking. Couple things to improve on would be to have a light in the refrigerator and a new key code door set. The donkeys were fun and otherwise we had a great time!

Lackluster location, terrible management company experience It's a 45min walk to get to the other side of the river. The interior is unique. The property is located in a sort of "compound" with stone walls around.<br/><br/>The AC units are not enough to cope with the Texas heat. They have to run constantly to keep 76deg. That and the trains passing close at night is probably why they provide ear plugs at the bedside.<br/><br/>I had to use the shower to clean the filter screen on the bedroom AC unit, it looked like it hadn't been rinsed in a year.<br/><br/>Laundry on site is a nice perk.<br/><br/>The donkeys on the property are cute and unique.<br/><br/>A few dead cockroaches found around, but sort of expected in a ground floor older place in central Texas.<br/><br/>The management company leaves a lot to be desired. They inundate you with automated emails, pretending to be personalized and responsive. I didn't realize how far this was from town, and asked to be moved to one of their other properties. Was told that wasn't an option. Ok, fine.<br/><br/>Then afterward I get mixed signals about whether they found an item I left. An email hinted at that, and of course they didn't respond to any of my inquiries via email. Called and they said asked a whole bunch of irrelevant questions then says "We've located an item that matches your description" then asks, "which part of the house did you leave it in"? What? Did you find it or not? You have my mailing address and everything via email already. They asked me if I wanted expedited processing for an additional fee. It seems getting an expedient answer about whether an item is found is expedited service. Finally they confirmed they will mail it. It's been 20 days since I inquired.<br/><br/>What a chore. What a sloppy operation. I should have stayed at a hotel.

LOVED this place! This location was everything the advertisement said. We wanted to be near the city, but get that country vibe and the Casita provided that. It was a such a cute space, very clean, quaint, but walking distance from bars and restaurants. My favorite amenity though... the donkeys. They were so gentle, so docile. Whether it be a small family or a couple looking for a quiet retreat, this place was a very cute space.

Casita review I don't normally leave reviews, but breaking my tradition here. Beautiful place to stay. Like a small compound, under beautiful big trees and native plants, and a pair of donkeys to talk to. Now for the downside, train tracks back the property about 200 ft away, so bring some earplugs to help you sleep through the night. My biggest issues were with TURNKEY VACATION RENTALS. We arrived after our check-in time, and the door code didn't work, so I had to call them and wait for them to reset the new door code. Light bulb was out on the stove top (which we replaced), there was a long black hair left in the shower floor by the cleaning service TURNKEY uses, and they left only 1 bath towel for 2 of us staying multiple days. After calling again, TURNKEY took care of it and credited me back $25 for the inconvenience. They graciously extended our last day check out time to noon, however the door code reset around 10am and we were unable to come and go, and had to leave the unit unlocked upon departure. After having to pay a $50 non-refundable damage fee, and a $110 "Professional" cleaning fee, and a $46 booking service fee, I've learned my lesson, I will avoid rental properties that are managed by TURNKEY.

I don't normally leave reviews, but breaking my tradition here. Beautiful place to stay. Like a small compound, under beautiful big trees and native plants, and a pair of donkeys to talk to. Now for the downside, train tracks back the property about 200 ft away, so bring some earplugs to help you sleep through the night. My biggest issues were with TURNKEY VACATION RENTALS. We arrived after our check-in time, and the door code didn't work, so I had to call them and wait for them to reset the new door code. Light bulb was out on the stove top (which we replaced), there was a long black hair left in the shower floor by the cleaning service TURNKEY uses, and they left only 1 bath towel for 2 of us staying multiple days. After calling again, TURNKEY took care of it and credited me back $25 for the inconvenience. They graciously extended our last day check out time to noon, however the door code reset around 10am and we were unable to come and go, and had to leave the unit unlocked upon departure. After h

This location was everything the advertisement said. We wanted to be near the city, but get that country vibe and the Casita provided that. It was a such a cute space, very clean, quaint, but walking distance from bars and restaurants. My favorite amenity though... the donkeys. They were so gentle, so docile. Whether it be a small family or a couple looking for a quiet retreat, this place was a very cute space.

INSIDE THE HOUSE

You know you’ve arrived at the property when you see the flagpole with beautiful stone wall behind.

A stone path leads to the casita, where you’ll push open the iron gate and walk to the dark green front door. You’ll enter the property into the main living area with traditional Spanish tile floors.

Put your feet up and enjoy a quiet night in, lounging in the living room on the two arm chairs and plush love seat. Spanish decor surrounds you, creating a warm ambiance.

When it’s time for dinner, head into the adjacent kitchen, where you can cook up a storm. It comes with fridge, double sink, toaster, oven/stove and microwave. Brew up a cup of coffee on the Keurig and sit down at the kitchen bar with two bar-stools, perusing the newspaper.

In the bedroom, the wrought-iron queen bed invites you to sleep like a baby. You’ll also find a 42” flat-screen TV, small chair, closet and dresser. The bathroom has a sink, toilet and stand-up shower behind the bright shower curtain.

Double patio doors lead out to a peaceful wooden deck with 4-person bistro set overlooking the green bamboo landscaping. As you’re enjoying the garden, follow the short path to our pet donkeys, Bang and Ruth. They love to nibble on the grass and leaves and enjoy attention and a rub on the head.

NOTE: Part of the charm of the property is its downtown location. That charming location comes with train noise, as trains run past the property at different times during the day. We don't mind the train but not everyone will find it as charming as we do.

THE LOCATION

The Barton Springs Pool (8 minutes) is a beautiful spot to spend the afternoon, swimming in the natural spring-fed pool and lounging under the stately oak and pecan trees. It’s part of the Zilker Metropolitan Park, which also houses the Zilker Botanical Gardens.
