A guest from Houston, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2016 Great property! The area was nice and quiet. Having pool access was a plus since my girls love to swim! My family and I enjoyed our stay at this vacation rental.
Clean, modern, family perfect, open floor plan, awesome owners
Chad H. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in May, 2016 Excellent place to stay, family friendly neighborhood,close to everything, clean, stocked supplies, can't say enough good things about this place. Would stay again
Very cute place with all the ammenities of being home!
Chantell T. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2016 This place was a great surprise! My sister had never been to Austin and being that we are Mommy's now we can't exactly experience it the same college way. We definitely got the whole Austin experience still and a full amount of comfort for our entire group. I feel that this place is just far enough from the whole hustle and bustle but definitely close to most things. About 12 minutes to SOCO and 6th. Tried to respect the place as much as possible they left it impeccable for our stay and even accommodated us with an extra air mattress for our little ones to nap on. A little side note the dishwasher power is on the side of the island where there are two on and off switches. It does work (my mistake), it just needs to be switched "on" to run power to it! Very happy with our stay and big thank you to Brooke for her fluid communication with us from booking to check out.
Brandon S. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2016 This vacation rental was comfortable and in a family-friendly neighborhood. Highly recommended if you're visiting Austin with kids.
Samuel W. from Rowlett, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2016 All I can say is wow. We went to Austin from Dallas with some friends just to get away. When I saw this place online, I knew this was the place to stay. When we arrived to the neighborhood, we were all impressed. Once we opened the door to this property, we all fell in love with it. So much that all weekend we kept saying we should buy this place. If any travelers want to have a great place to stay instead of booking a hotel. Zach Scott is the way to go. WE will be booking this place again.
Ed J. from Lewis Center, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2016 We rented this property from Saturday to Wednesday, to spend some time visiting a new town during our son's Spring Break. We arrived around noon and dropped our bags at the house while the housekeeper was there. That was nice and it allowed us to do some sight seeing on day 1. However, we arrived at 4pm (check in time) and the housekeeper was still there. In fact, she didn't leave until a bit after 5pm. Apparently the washer wasn't spin drying the clothes well so the clothes dryer was having to work longer to get things sort of dry. But no big deal. We relaxed upstairs until she left. We found over the course of the next few days that the unit was surface clean only. We found a number of long, black hairs from previous renters, our 7 year old found old socks under the couch, the oven was gross (I ran a cleaning cycle), and the microwave had food splatter. None of these spoiled the trip, but it makes you wonder what the housekeeper was doing those 5 hours. The kitchen was stocked fairly well but if you plan to cook a lot make sure you have what you need on day 1. But overall the house was nice, spacious, and quiet. We enjoyed the two level porch and the ability to walk to to Meuller for groceries or casual dining. Definitely take advantage of the free Lyft rides. There is a code on the fridge. We opted not to rent a car and was happy with that decision. We waited less than 10 minutes for every Uber or Lyft ride we took, and we probably took about 15 of them.
Nearly new town home close to Dell Children's Hospital
Reviewed by: Kathryn R. recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2016 We couldn't have found a better property than this one while our grandson was a patient at Dell Children's Hospital. It is literally a 5 minute drive to the hospital, grocery store, restaurants, gas stations, et. The management company was the only one that responded to our request immediately. This was certainly helpful as we needed accommodations without any notice, and we appreciated Brooke's professional customer service.
Do not stay unless you want a inaccurate review on your account
A guest from Austin, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2016 Horrible , should have never stayed there . Bad host , nice unit .
Property Manager Response: Response from Emerson Guest Properties LLC This guest, who rented the property via Airbnb for SXSW festival, left the property totally trashed, much to our dismay. It took us many extra hours to clean up after his group, though there was fortunately no lasting damage to the property. An accurate and honest review of our experience with him as a guest was left on his Airbnb account, which he was not happy with. This, unfortunately, is a revenge review. His review on Airbnb (On the Airbnb platform, both host and guest are required to leave a review before seeing the review left for them) was very positive. We're sorry to see he's chosen to respond in this manner.
Bob P. from Byron Center, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 44 days in January, 2016 Zach Scott condo is everything promised in the VRBO listing. Very clean, well stocked kitchen and plenty on linens. The location is close to good restaurants, UT and downtown entertainment. Management company was very responsive and easy to work with. For long term renters a second television would be nice. I would definitely stay here again during my future visits to Austin.
A guest from Texarkana, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in December, 2015 Enjoyed several days during Christmas at the Zach Scott Townhome. Great location and wonderful home. Everything you need for an enjoyable stay.
Reviewed by: David S. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2015 Loved the home, plenty of room, nice having a private garage, the management company was very responsive and a pleasure to work with. On thing I would suggest for the owner is that he should put a coffee table in the living room and maybe one additional chair. Other than that we thoroughly enjoyed the place. Nice to have the DVD as well as the cable TV.
A guest from Virginia Beach, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2015 The Zach Scott, in the Mueller section of Austin really does give you give you the feeling that you're part of the neighborhood. Everything well groomed, friendly people, and there are lots of places to walk. The home was beautiful, very clean (think baseboards) and the kitchen thoughtfully stocked. The photos are a true representation and the place actually seemed bigger than the photos indicate. We borrowed a car, but also used Lyft ($10 to S. Congress) to get around. Management was very responsive, taking care of a request within hours.
Scott C. from Frederick, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2015 We are delighted to have found the Zach Scott rental. The size and location was perfect. It is in the Mueller airport redevelopment giving easy access to park areas, walking trails, grocery, dining, downtown Austin and the Domain area on the North side. It is no more than 15 minutes to the ABIA airport. The unit was well furnished and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen.
Dan J. from Thousand Oaks, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2015 The rental was nice and in good shape. The neighborhood was beautiful and quiet. The property management obviously cares about their product. There were a couple problems (listed below), but I would definitely do it again.They emphasize keeping the place clean for the next tenant and their cleaning crew is great. However, When I arrived, there were dirty dishes, pet hair on the floor, and dirty laundry in the machines. None of these really ruined the trip, but just something they should be aware of.
A guest from Brandon, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2015 We had a great stay in Austin. We have family living in Mueller so the property on Zach Scot was perfect. Although the weekend was rainy, we found the location perfect. The property was clean and well-planned for VRBO. We would highly recommend!!!
DEE E. from WAYNE, New Jersey recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in January, 2015 I loved everything about the condo. Beautiful furnishings, everything I needed, great location (right off Rt 35).
Beer B. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in December, 2014 We have had the greatest time in the Zach Scott house, that has served as our home for 9 days in december 2014. With our two girls and a friend of one of them, we have been able to disconnect from our busy worlds and spend a wonderful Christmas time. The environment is great, the nearby shops are good, we would love to come back!
Reviewed by: Carol H. recommends this property. Stayed for 42 days in November, 2014 We stayed here for well over a month and we were very comfortable; the house was well-equipped and clean. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen was wonderful and we ate many meals at home. We loved having a garage.The best part was the location. We could walk to HEB and Torchy's tacos !!Emerson Rents is a great company to deal with.
Carl S. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2014 Everything you could want is provided to make this property like a second home. Be careful- the shower pan ius slippery.
A guest from Avon, CT recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in July, 2014 If you are looking for a place to stay with children or grandchildren, look no further. This place is a only block from the local pool and playground and a short walk to Thinkery (Children's Museum). As Ex-Austinites, we know the city very well and we were so glad to escape its growing pains at this house. A brand new supermarket is one mile away. Getting to Downtown Austin or other parts is quick and easy without having to brave the MoPac, 360, or I-35 traffic. There's no parking problems or Drag worms in the neighborhood--just a friendly mix of young families, students, and retirees. Experience Austin at its best while remaining close to the attractions that continue to make it weird.
Ellen D. from Arlington, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2014 Bedding exceptionally nice and bathrooms have great showers. Plenty of closets. Location convenient. The WiFI was not working which caused me to have to go find one in order to do my work. Very unhappy about that situation.Wish there was a blender. Fruit smoothies are our morning wakeups. I would recommend to others IF the WiFI is confirmed.
Property Manager Response: Response from Emerson Guest Properties LLC So great to have this guest! The WIFI issue was unfortunate but fleeting - discovered during the weekend and due to an equipment malfunction on the cable company's part. The cable company had to come out and make repairs shortly after the guest's check out, and now everything is working perfectly once again.
Carl H. from The Woodlands, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 38 days in January, 2014 We stayed at this property for 5 weeks while our house underwent repairs and we have nothing but wonderful things to say about this beautiful town home. It's in a great area, new and nicely furnished, very well stocked, and most of all, it's a very comfortable place to stay. We had one issue with cable and internet and it was quickly resolved with an email to the property manager. Communication with the property manager at this listing gets excellent marks in our book!!
