Looking for a blanket to keep warm? Make sure it is clean.
For the most part, everything else was in working order.
Dana W. Apr 2021
Home was quaint and quiet. Would stay again. Just wish there was a washer/dryer; even a stackable one would have been efficient. I recommend this home.
MARK A. Feb 2021
Nice, comfortable home with great amenities.

We will stay again
Highly recommend staying!

We loved the location of this home. We were able to walk to all the restaurants/bars on Main Street. The home itself was very charming with cool features such as a chess table with cards and checkers. We highly recommend this home for your next visit to Fredericksburg!

The house was perfect! It was very nicely decorated and furnished. It was located in a great place. We could walk to the shops on Main Street in Fredericksburg. We would definitely book this house again!

The 2 king beds were very comfortable and house was very clean with all the necessary items. The only thing negative was the ice maker did not work. Noticed a red light on ice filter button. Probably needed changing. But overall great stay.

We absolutely loved this beautifully appointed home just off Main Street. So glad that they were dog friendly.
Jerry W. Sep 2020
Loved the house but the kitchen is not well equipped. Needs a large frying pan, cutting board, grater, pot holder, kitchen towels. It only has a couple of pans. Also note no oven. The front porch was nice but only seating for two and no little table to put a drink.
Yard needs work. I did enjoy staying there and will bring my own stuff next time I come.

Fantastic cottage near town center on a quiet street. Charming with a mix of old world architectural details and updated kitchen, bath and AC. If the bed linens were more luxurious, it would make for a perfect experience. Would definitely recommend.
Rachel S. Jul 2020
Everything about this house was ideal. The location is close enough to downtown for easy shopping or eating out, but still quiet with a secluded feel once inside. The western themed furnishings provide just the right ambience for this hill country getaway. The rooms are spacious, the couches are comfy, the kitchen has all you need to choose take out or to cook with a nice bar for eating. The 2 person shower is luxurious. The back porch is a quiet little spot to enjoy. We loved our stay so much and would loved to have extended our stay. We will be back.

Great location
We will be back

Step back in time and enjoy the Texas Hill Country of yesterday. Spacious 2 bedroom King Suites with all of the updates you could ask for while keeping the heritage of an older residence. Two sitting rooms, with even more sitting on front porch and back screened porch. Modern kitchen and appliances open to sitting areas. One street from all of the shopping and many restaurants. Most within walking distance, but we found parking in town to be a breeze. Two bikes on the front porch! Loved this little slice of heaven!
Arturo M. Jul 2020
The place was great for hanging out and going to town, just a couple of blocks away from downtown.
We had a great time chatting with our family and visiting the local business and restaurants.
We had a couple of interactions with Vacasa personnel and they responded pleasantly!

House and location were both great
Susan H. Jun 2020
Wanted to let you know that the toilet seat was loose in back bathroom and toilet paper holder fell off the wall on first use. Also, walk in shower only had hot water. Other then that, fantastic location and amenities; we loved our stay and will be back.
Manager response:
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, Susan! We also greatly appreciate you bringing these items to our attention. All of your concerns have been fixed. Thank you for choosing Vacasa!

WE had a great stay at the Durst Haus on Austin Street in Fredericksburg. It was clean and nicely decorated in a Texas Ranch House style.
Branden L. Jun 2020
We had bike access to everything we wanted. The home decor is luxurious. We will be back
Marco E. May 2020
This was perfect for two couples. The ‘haus’ was super clean and the ladies enjoyed the decor. A bonus is the proximity to Main St. We parked our car and walked everywhere. We enjoyed our stay and will be back!
Philip O. May 2020
The home has all of the amenities needed. King beds in both bedrooms made it easy to share space equally. The decor is perfect for hill country and we really liked the screened in back porch. About 2 blocks to the Main Street area. Would definitely stay again.
Ginger T. Mar 2020
Just the right size: room to spread out, but super comfy spaces for watching TV, eating, and hanging out. Interior decorating is spot-on. We enjoyed everything about this home, and would love to return!
Tammy L. Mar 2020
We loved the Beautiful interior, coziness & convenience to Main St. Hope to stay there again soon!!!
