What our guests are saying about the Loft House

THIS HOUSE IS AMAZING – Sharon is a doll and is quick to respond to any questions. She offers so many amenities like massages or having a chef come to house. She has a binder full of places to go in Austin, such as restaurants, attractions, etc. Everyone in our group agreed that this house was the coolest house any of us had ever stayed. The outside area and pool was great for gathering, as was the back porch. Sharon thinks of everything and provides you with anything you may need during your stay. We truly enoyed this house and vacation and loved working with Sharon. She is a superb host for a superb house!


HEAVEN IN AUSTIN! – There are not enough words to describe how wonderful the weekend was here. While the pictures are STUNNING online, you have to SEE it to get the true experience. We stayed here for a bachelorette party and it was everything we could have wanted. I got chills when I walked in the door and even a little misty eyed. We were greeted by Sharon, who was the BEST in every sense of the word. Always accessible through the whole planning process and even during our stay. The decor of the house is just breathtaking and is truly an oasis. Each room had a special basket full of goodies for all of us as well. The outdoor shower was a dream and we loved how private the property was. You would never know you were in a community. Sharon connected us to a chef and massage therapists that came right to the house. Loved the fact that it was so close to the city as well. Highly recommend on all accounts. Heaven in Austin!!!!!


GORGEOUS, INDULGENT AND A TOUCH OF AUSTIN ECLECTIC – Sharon is an exceptional owner/manager! This is the best stocked home in which our group has ever stayed. It is a lovely property, quiet, indulgent, gorgeous and a dash of whimsy and humor. You will have everything you could need and more. Our large group of 10 had plenty of space, and really enjoyed how well taken care of we were as guests, as well as the unique detail and beauty of this home.


I HONESTLY CAN’T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT SHARON AND HER SPACE – First of all – her home is BEAUTIFUL. Everything that we wanted it to be and more! Sharon’s hospitality and friendly is also top notch. She lives in a space right next to the home we stayed at, welcomed us with a smile and a beverage, and gave us all the privacy we needed all weekend. She was quick to answer questions and very helpful with the entire process. 10/10 experience, thank you Sharon!


WE HAD A WONDERFUL COLLEGE REUNION AT THE ARTISTIC AND ECLECTIC LOFT HOUSE – … Would absolutely recommend the home to large groups. There is ample comfortable space in which to relax — the outdoor eating area and pool area were our favorites spots. Sharon has thought of everything, from the towels and toiletries in every bathroom, to the amenities in the kitchen, to the firepit ready to go outside. The house was a great jumping off point for touring the city.


INCREDIBLE, ECLECTIC VACATION RENTAL! – My group and I had such an awesome stay at the Bali house! Everything from the decor to the amentities were 5 star. Would highly recommend if you want a house with character and comfort and so close to everything in the heart of Austin.


ONE OF THE BEST VACATION RENTAL EXPERIENCES WE HAVE EVER HAD 🙂 – The house is amazing! We rented it and hosted a small get together for a colleague’s 61st birthday. Thoughtful details everywhere- even better than the listing. Sharon is lovely and very kind, helped us out too! We will be back! Don’t hesitate to book this place. 


TRULY AMAZING, INSPIRING HOME TO SHARE WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS! – This house is perfect for entertaining! We hosted our small wedding reception here and had a private chef prepare a special dinner for our guests. Everyone LOVED the house and it created such a wonderful ambiance for our party. The screened in porch overflowing from the kitchen was probably my favorite room, but each room definitely had something special to offer. It felt like we had been transported to an exotic location! 

Sharon was so great to work with. Very responsive to any questions we had during the planning process. We hope to come back and stay again soon. Such a special place!


MY BEST RENTAL EXPERIENCE – I rented The Loft House for a corporate retreat and most highly recommend this location to anyone looking for a private getaway. From our first point of contact, Sharon helped me walk through everything I would need to make my rental experience as smooth and enriching as possible. And her home!! I’ve never been in such a place. Every square foot of it is gorgeous & unique. And yet it was familiar enough where I felt like I could take full advantage of it – that I could get comfortable & relax. With accommodations for over 10 people and a beautiful + tranquil backyard, I’m sure we’ll be returning soon!!


SACRED RETREAT: HOME TO ART AND BEAUTY – Sharon is the most incredible property owner. She amazed us with her ability to work with us on what we needed, and go above and beyond to provide gorgeous details that made our stay special. She has cultivated an amazing home full of art, beautiful objects, warm welcoming lighting and expert details. The house is filled with captivating textiles, furniture and sculptures. Big windows look out onto the restful pool and live oaks. We can’t recommend this home highly enough. It is special, sacred, and filled with good energy and light.

CALLEN T. – 23 October 2014

AMAZING! – I must say The Loft House was probably my favorite place I’ve been in a very long time. This place was so beautiful and unique, definitely made our labor day weekend a weekend we’ll never forget! The house was very clean and had everything we needed. The location was perfect, only 10 minutes away from downtown and Barton Springs. I would highly recommend this place to all my friends and family, and we will definitely be back! Thanks Sharon for everything, you were awesome and so kind!

BETSY B. – 04 September 2015

EXCEPTIONAL PROPERTY AND VERY THOUGHTFUL HOST – This is a truly extraordinary property! To begin with, it’s BEAUTIFUL. We had seen pictures, of course, but it was beyond expectations. There’s art everywhere, and we kept seeing interesting things we hadn’t noticed initially. Sharon, met us and walked us through everything we needed to know. To supplement that, she has labelled everything so that you can find what you need (i.e., esp. in the kitchen). The pool was lots of fun to use, and some of us thought the outdoor shower was/is a real treat. The beds are really, really comfortable — and we travelers really appreciated that! I can’t think of anything that could or should have been better. We would go back to this property with eager enthusiasm.

DANIEL S. – 01 October 2014

SPECTACULAR RESORT LIKE PROPERTY –  We held our Christmas Family Reunion at Sharon’s wonderful resort like property and found it to be everything advertised and MORE. Not only is this home visually stunning and architecturally interesting…it’s fully equipped with everything one might need. Host a party or just “get away from it all”….this property does it all and won’t disappoint. What was equally impressive was the owner’s attention to detail and business acumen. The house was in perfect shape when we arrived….and we got back our security deposit the same day we departed! 

NORM S. – 22 December 2013

AMAZING HOUSE FOR A GROUP!! – 10 of us girls went to Austin for a bachelorette party and staying at Sharon’s house was an amazing experience. There was plenty of room and bathrooms for all eleven of us to hang out comfortably and get ready. The house is absolutely gorgeous with lots of fun details. Sharon was so wonderful and attentive to everything we needed both before and during our stay. The openness of the house allowed us to hold conversations wherever we were. The screened in porch was a fun place to relax and visit. We even had a private chef cook us dinner one night and the space was perfect–we were able to watch him cook in the kitchen while we hung out in the living room. I would certainly recommend this house for anyone visiting Austin!!
