"My family and I rented this beautiful home to gather extended family for Thanksgiving week and to be together during my sister’s celebration of life. Even though it was a very emotional time for all of us, the house provided comfort and a perfect space for us to enjoy family time together. Lori was extremely helpful providing local resources and went out of her way to accommodate us. I highly recommend this home for families visiting Austin!"
"Our group were young professionals and businessmen from around the country on a college reunion trip. Location is awesome. Close enough to downtown for dining and fun, but just far enough away for a retreat.
The home was very clean, fully stocked down to seasonings for steaks and truffle salt! High-end Shun cutlery in the kitchen. Very fine attention to detail noticed even by a bunch of West Point grads 😉
Booking was easy. The owners are very communicative and can tell that they care about the renter's experience. Property itself is gorgeous. A renovated charming and classy home. Very fine touches to include automated showers, toilets, Sonos throughout. The dock is just a short, beautiful walk down the street in a quiet peaceful neighborhood on the lake. The dock itself is very spacious with new, clean furniture, a cooler (don't have to bring your own) and just a short 2 story jump into the refreshing waters. We had a few minor issues that arose.. which is to be expected..and all of which were not the fault of the owners and were handled very very expeditiously and happily—in other words, the place is close to perfect, but should any reasonable inconvenience occur the owners will do everything they can to remedy it. Truly first class. We will be back.
Oh yea! They are also building a pool, pizza oven and more to make the backyard and home even more enjoyable. Top 2% of all VRBO rentals I have stayed at."
"House was beautiful. Boat dock was gorgeous. My wife stayed there with 5 of her girlfriends for a surprise b-day weekend. Lori, was an incredible host. So giving of her time and helped me with securing private chefs, car services, etc. My wife and her friends had a spectacular time. Highly recommended. The house exceeded all expectations."
"We had an amazing Labor Day weekend at Mustard Seed! The home perfectly accommodated the adults and the children, it was clean, well laid out and perfect for hosting families. Lori was such a pleasure to book with, friendly and easily accessible if we had any questions. We will absolutely be back!"
"Check in was super easy. Owner helped with special arrangements for dining and made great effort to make sure we had a special time. Home was beautifully decorated and appointed with everything to make it a memorable stay."
"Mustard Seed provided easy access to boat docks to hangout, play, and get access to boats. Lori and Daniel are awesome to work with, very responsive, and willing to help you out. The house is super clean and easy to navigate. Great house for big family as our older kids could use guest quarters (Separate stairway) and so when they stayed up late, they didn't keep everyone else up. Thanks for a great family trip!"
"We wanted a get away where we could have peace and quiet but access to fun and found it all at Rivercrest. Lori is a pleasure to deal with and helped us make the most of our time with a great recommendation for a boat charter. The boat dock is an easy walk away and has everything you need to spend hours in the water, relaxing, cooking, fishing and watching the sunset. Everything about the house is perfect. It is incredibly well stocked and spacious, with several areas to gather and play games or watch a movie and enough space to have ‘me’ time and read in peace and quiet.
We will definitely be back!"
"Perfect family getaway, Lori was brilliant from start to finish and property is stunning throughout!"
"Short 4th of July weekend stay at this beautiful home on Lake Austin. Great access to boat dock. Home is well furnished. Home owner very easy to deal with, but never had a problem. Would stay here again if in the Austin area!"
I rented Mustard Seed for a 5 day birthday celebration for my brother, whose children and grandchildren attended, as well as our family. The home is beautiful, well stocked with every amenity, and the perfect backdrop for a celebration. Lori went above and beyond in responding to my every wish. For example, one night I had Mexican food catered. Lori bought warming chafing dishes which were perfect for the buffet. She gave great recommendations for caterers and nearby restaurants. The dock is a great party venue with lots of comfortable seating, a great view and a short walk from the house. The neighborhood is beautiful and the other residents could not have been nicer. Most importantly, my brother loved it!

"We had the best time at Mustard Seed! The house was so lovely and spacious and had every amenity you could think of. Our family could spread out allowing everyone to have privacy when needed. All the beds and linens, glassware, etc were top notch. The boat dock is super close and is the perfect hang out spot to enjoy the lake. Lori was so helpful and attentive to our every need! It’s the perfect family get away for all ages to enjoy Lake Austin and each other."
