Perfect for those staying a month or more in the city, this gorgeous, no-expense spared corporate rental is ideal for those on a short contract, relocating or on a long vacation in this beautiful part of Texas.

Large windows flood the home with light whilst energy efficient ‘honey-comb’ blinds and well-serviced air-conditioning keep it as cool as required. There are multiple desks to work from and the floors are wooden laminate or tile. The kitchen has black granite work surfaces and offers all the high-quality, modern appliances and supplies you would expect. There is even a Nespresso machine for great coffee.

This property is meticulously and scrupulously cleaned and maintained – a lot of pride and love goes into it. Please read all the five star reviews so you can see how much past guests have loved staying in this exceptional home.

Guests enjoy the use of the large, communal pool and hot-tub surrounded by stunning hill-country views. There is a small, well-equipped gym.The condo community is friendly and well-mannered, comprising many young professionals and successful, health-conscious Austinites.

All bills are included (water, cable television, wireless Internet and electricity up to $200 per month). Two parking spaces (one covered) and the use of the community facilities are also included. There are no hidden charges – only the cleaning fee as described in the rates. Move in with just your suitcase!

My six-month stay in this unit while in Austin for business was exceptional. The privacy of the trees on the wrap around deck, the wonderful view of Ladybird Lake and downtown Austin was an unexpected bonus. The unit was quiet, everything worked well, and it is in a convenient location. Pippa was great to work with and was eager to ensure my experience was the best possible. I have been around the world for years on business and this was the best stay I've had, it exceeded my expectations by a long shot. I would highly recommend it.

Our nine month stay here was effortless and peaceful all due to the forethought and attentiveness of the owner. Wonderful vistas of the spectacular sunrises and blazing sunsets from this corner condo made every day special. The condo was spacious and every need was anticipated from plenty of new, plush towels and fresh linens to a complete kitchen ready to cook in. We loved taking evening walks in the area and the views were incredible. Having our morning coffee on the wraparound terrace and watching the birds was a great way to start the day. Relaxing evenings spent on the huge, comfortable sofa and reading or watching TV were most welcome at the end of the day. Upscale stores and lots of good restaurants were nearby although downtown was only a short drive away. This short-term stay felt like a vacation and I would jump at the chance to stay here again if ever we are back in Austin.

I had the incredibly fortuitous opportunity to live in this property for 4 months while ramping up a new job in the Austin area. The stress of ramping up a new job is generally hard on anyone, and coming home to this well-appointed treehouse in the Northwest hills every night made a tremendous difference. It’s the perfect size with all the right amenities, and the wrap around deck comes complete with solitude and million dollar views. In addition, the location is just the right distance from most Austin destinations, with quick passage up 360 to 183 or MOPAC (Loop 1) and easy traffic flow. Lastly, this review wouldn’t be complete without a nod to the property owner, who was fantastic to work with. All in all, I can’t recommend the property enough. My wife and I bought a beautiful home on the NW side of Austin. We love our new house and locale, but we both still miss the setting of this very special little place. To anyone looking for a corporate home for either a short or prolonged stay, you won’t be disappointed.

Agreeing with the other positive reviews. Having finished our three-month stay nearly three weeks ago, I still miss the open sky, and the wind on the deck, at this place. It is an exceedingly well-chosen property, and Pippa offers it with verve and integrity. Amazing quality for the open market.

My husband and I needed temporary housing in October as we had sold our Austin house and had things to finish up before our relocation to the northeast. It was a very comfortable place to stay. The views of the city and river were beautiful any time of day. My husband works from home and truly enjoyed the deck and views. We love to walk in the evenings and enjoyed the abundant sidewalks in the area and easy access to stunning sunsets. The unit itself was quiet and well equipped. In addition, she was very receptive to suggestions about any additions to the unit. We cooked most meals in the unit and felt that a couple of items would be helpful to many cooks. Pippa was extremely responsive to questions or concerns. Our children still live in Texas and we hope the unit is available on future visits to the city.

'My name is Cheri Mauldin and I and my son Peter were the lucky people who got to live in Pippa's condo last summer. I have lived in many places and in my life, and I am not exaggerating when I state that last summer is still one of my favorite times and places. The condo is amazing. I loved to get up in the mornings and open the shades on that doorwall and meander with my coffee cup to the comfortable chair on the balcony and watch the birds and gaze at the skyline and the treetops. There are trails right there, I went through the woods you see from the balcony to get the the trails. As you explore them, you will discover waterfalls and hidden pools - I kid you not. Pippa was a great landlady, even from afar. Anything that needed repair, any questions that we had, Pippa emailed us immediately and got things taken care of. The kitchen cubboards held hidden gems and when I arrived to find new sheets and towels - I felt like a queen. Needless to say, I was very happy there and would recommend the condo with Pippa as the landlady to anyone. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did! Sincerely, Cheri Mauldin'

I stayed at Pippa’s place for the past five years, while working as an academic at UT Austin (the summers I always spent in Europe). Let me say it right away: Its a fantastic place which became home for me and I truly miss it, now back in Berlin. The view from the living room, kitchen, and balcony is stunning. You feel like living in the middle of nature, you can see the river and the hills, and the Austin skyline on the horizon, it is quite spectacular! The place is very well furnished, it comes with a cozy sofa, great for both work and relaxation, a very comfortable bed, and a fully equipped kitchen. The second bedroom is ideal as a study or for guests. the place has a second bath and comes with lots of closet space. Although its a condo, you very rarely hear your neighbors. I worked a lot from home, while finishing a book. This was an ideal place for completing my work. Pippa is a wonderful very responsible landlady. Even though she herself now lives in Europe, whenever there was a problem with the place (and there weren’t many during this five years, once the dishwasher got replaced and twice someone had to fix the A/C which is standard maintenance), she took care of things immediately and scheduled appointments for electricians, cable guys, or plumbers, or whoever was needed. In other cases her family, still based in Austin, took care of things. All money issue were handled very responsibly and generously, we never got into a conflict about any of the costs for electricity or other utilities (an issue which was at stake several times, because I left during the summers when she got other tenants). I received the full security deposit back, just shortly after moving out. To sum it up, I can recommend this place and Pippa as a landlady enthusiastically, without any restrictions. If I would live in the Austin area again, I immediately would also try to rent the place again. Peter R, Ph.D.

My wife and I had the opportunity to live in Pippa’s apartment for an entire year. It was a modern and well-maintained property, which had everything we could have asked for. It was truly a comfortable place for us and we enjoyed the great view from the balcony, the peaceful and quiet neighborhood, as well as the pool and the gym. Even though we never met the landlady in person, we were more than happy with her since she was an amazing owner who could not have been more accommodating, responsible, and caring. She was always attentive to all our concerns and questions regarding the apartment, and she took care of any problem quickly. It was truly a pleasure renting from her. Overall, we had a wonderful experience, no problems whatsoever, hence we highly recommend this beautiful apartment at Monte Vista. Pablo S.
