Rodrigo - The apartment is beautifully decorated

October 13, 2019

I stayed at Rice's lovely AirBnB for four nights and had an excellent time. The apartment is beautifully decorated and has everything you could need. It's also really close to UT's campus, so if you're in town for business there, the place cannot be beat!

Melvina - Gallery House is beautiful and clean!

October 7, 2019

The Gallery House is beautiful and clean! I was in town for a wedding during the first weekend of ACL. Rice was very friendly at Check-in and I even had an opportunity to meet all three of his pups! The Murphy bed was super comfortable and I loved the shower. Wish I could have stayed longer to enjoy the kitchen and balcony more. The GH was located close to several bus stops and places to eat in a very nice area, all of which Rice was very nice to direct me to. It was always easy to get an Uber as well. I hope to come back again in the future to see more of the beautiful city.

Stacy - I loved it even more than the first time

October 3, 2019

This is my second stay, and I loved it even more than the first time. I discovered there are many good places for dinner within a half a mile walk, so not having a car was no problem.

Lori - the best Airbnb I've ever stayed in

September 22, 2019

The Gallery House is hands down the best Airbnb I've ever stayed in. I was in Austin for meetings on the UT campus, and due to the Texas heat, I mostly spent my time either in the (very adequately air conditioned) Gallery House or at the University. But Rice and Pam's place was the most comfortable place one could spend time in, for both working and relaxing. Anything you could possibly want or need were perfectly placed, just where you would expect to find it -- outlets, USB ports, butter, makeup mirror, white noise machine, chilled glasses, cold drinks -- you name it. I hope to return to Austin one day to actually do some sightseeing and when I do, I hope Rice and Pam's place is available! Within walking distance of the University, even on a hot day!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Stacy - space was wonderfully appointed

September 19, 2019

The space was wonderfully appointed and laid out is a way that made it feel bigger than I thought it would be. The location was wonderful and easily accessible.

Evelyn - Such a beautiful home

August 4, 2019

Such a beautiful home! We loved every minute of it. Rice was incredibly understanding of an emergency situation and was so flexible. We truly weren’t ready to leave. We will be back!

Matthew - The moment that pretty much sums up my stay

July 26, 2019

The moment that pretty much sums up my stay at the Gallery House was when I arrived from a long day at the conference I was attending, having walked from campus in near-three-digit heat. I pulled an ice-cold beer from the fridge and thought to myself, “man, I wish I’d thought ahead this morning and placed a stein in the freezer...”. As I cracked open the freezer, I quickly realized Rice had done the thinking ahead for me — there was my finely iced stein, perfectly poised to receive my craft Pilsner. This was indicative of my whole stay — the freshly-ground coffee, the seamless technological set-up and the binder and iPad jam-packed with Rice and his wife’s favorite local spots. I’ve been in many Air BnBs home and abroad and this definitely stacks up among the best of them. If you’re going to be in Austin for a few days, especially if you’re doing something located on the nearby campus, look no further— this is your place!

Jack - A very nice place to stay in Austin

June 24, 2019

A very nice place to stay in Austin. Bright and airy, gorgeous photos line the walls, comes with every amenity you could want. A lovely bookshelf with back issues of Texas Monthly and Larry McMurty novels etc., so you can get the full Texas experience. Check-in a breeze.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Whitney - Great spot

June 16, 2019

Great spot, and Rice is a wonderful host. Everything about our stay was basically perfect, from easy check-in/check-out to comfort and size of the apartment, and hosts have done a great job of providing info/suggestions on the area. Overall, probably the best Air BnB I’ve stayed in.

The Gallery House was phenomenal! So many amazing personal touches, every single thing you would ever need while traveling and such a beautiful place! Will definitely stay here again next time we are in Austin.

Shireen - This little pad is the perfect spot

May 31, 2019

This little pad is the perfect spot for a quick austin get away. The location is perfectly located being 10 minutes or less from Congress Ave., 6th St and graffiti park, but still quiet enough to sleep without traffic noise. We did not want for anything in the way of amenities from a hair dryer, to coffee, multiple entertainment selections, to an iPad filled with dining suggestions. Parking is uncomplicated, covered and well light at night. We felt safe in the neighborhood and privacy was no issue. Definitely recommend and will revisit.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★


May 27, 2019

This has been an amazing stay! We were here celebrating our granddaughter’s graduation with Masters from UT. Love, love, love this charming place. Had some down time last night and went to Central Market and purchased a shrimp cocktail & sushi & a nice white wine. Loved sitting on the terrace. Watched two wonderful movies. Rice we will most assuredly be back. Thanks for all of your attention to details.

Roger & Lorrie - everything I could ever think of needing

Rice's place has everything I could ever think of needing plus lots more details and amenities that he had thought through. I'd give it more than 5 stars if possible.

Glenn & Mary - you had everything we needed and more

May 5, 2019

Thank you so much for letting us stay in the Gallery House while in Austin. Everything was amazing and you had everything we needed and more! The organized binder was so helpful to find the right place to eat. We had an amazing time and definitely will recommend you to our friends and family who come to Austin.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

BETSY & ALAN - home was truly amazing

April 22, 2019

Rice and Pam's home was truly amazing. I mentioned to Rice that it was a surprise for my boyfriend and he went out of his way to get us a bottle of wine and some ice cream. The location is great, we were about 10 minutes away from every place we wanted to go to. There were so many amazing features to this Airbnb I do not even know where to start. The kitchen was stocked with anything you might need from a microwave to water in the fridge. The whole house is beautiful and really tastefully decorated. They even have a nice porch where you can sit and have a cup of coffee in. Everything was so easy and well thought out in their home. Rice was timely in answering our questions and was very helpful and understanding. Overall, it was a wonderful experience. I highly recommend this home!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★


April 19, 2019

SUCH AN AMAZING AIRBNB! I was shocked at how high tech and user friendly Rice’s place was! Very close to everything. I can not put into words how clean, elegant, and cozy the loft was. I wish my visit was longer! Will be staying there again next time I’m in Austin!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

haley - home was absolutely perfect

April 17, 2019

Wow, Rice’s home was absolutely perfect. Their home was filled with so many amazing binders filled with things to see, do, and eat in Austin. The location was perfect and about a 10 min drive away from almost everything we wanted to do. Both Rice and his wife were so kind. I absolutely will be coming back again!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

ardella - If you need a place to stay in Austin

March 29, 2019

If you need a place to stay in Austin, Rice's place is perfect! It's just north of UT, so if you're going to a class or a football game, the location couldn't be more ideal. It's a lovely neighborhood, and I felt very safe as a solo female traveler. If you have a car, you'll have a great space to park it, but if you don't, no worries, because you can either walk or take a short Uber/Lyft/Bus ride to your destination. Rice has thought of everything, and I DO mean EVERYTHING! The space is handsomely appointed with a bed, kitchen, bathroom, patio, and living area, and a table that can act as a work space, and still has room for a reading nook. Any gadget your heart desires or left at home, you will find. It was so nice to have so many USB outlets available, and conveniently located by the bed! All check in and check out procedures were a breeze, and communication was fantastic. Rice's hospitality was the best I've ever had, he was so friendly, and helped me with my bags, and even gave me some tortillas when I told him I was going to make a quick visit to pick some up to bring to my mom. I highly recommend staying at Gallery House, and can't wait to come back for another visit!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Tim & LISA - place is spectacular, clean, and comfortable!

March 25, 2019

We were blown away by the combination of hi tech awesomeness and hometown hospitality of Rice and Pam! Their place is spectacular, clean, and comfortable! They went out of their way to help us with any detail Or question we had. Their location is very walkable and safe to downtown locales and especially the university. We enjoyed their lovely patio! We hope we can return one day and this home would be first on our list! (Not to mention you will be surrounded by lovely photography created by Rice!) Very quiet and comfortable at night. Every single detail is a “10”. Do not miss staying here!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Holly & Dirk - quiet, clean, stylish, and had great amenities

March 20, 2019

My boyfriend and I had an outstanding stay at Rice's apartment. It was quiet, clean, stylish, and had great amenities (including Google Home, a TV equipped with multiple streaming services, and a large selection of Texas-oriented books and magazines). What impressed me most about the apartment is that it contained every amenity we possibly could have needed during our stay. Whenever there was a moment when I thought, "We could really use _____," I found it a few minutes later in a conveniently located spot in the apartment. The space is also beautifully designed and decorated. Check-in and checkout were extremely easy, and Rice and his wife are friendly and kind. (We forgot an item of clothing when we checked out, and Rice's wife thoughtfully washed the item and made sure that we received it before we left.) Their hospitality was truly wonderful. We had a relaxing stay and I would highly recommend staying here.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Heather - This place was PERFECT!

March 18, 2019

This place was PERFECT! We stayed here during SXSW and the location was perfect & close to so much. Rice & his wife have absolutely thought of everything. It was very clean, modern, easy to access, and in a great location. They provided so many extra amenities (waters/drinks in the fridge, ice cream, travel size toiletries, books, etc) that made our stay so easy. I could go on and on about how much thought and detail they put into the studio but trust me when I say it has everything you need! It was a perfect stay and we can’t wait to come back and visit.

Josef - All my expectations were exceeded

David - a beautiful place to stay

The Gallery House was a beautiful place to stay. It's very close to the UT campus and all the restaurants/things to do that are nearby. The convenient location and peaceful atmosphere make this a perfect hub for your Austin activities.

Taryn - full of almost every amenity

February 28, 2019 

Rice and Pam’s space is so clean and full of almost every amenity you can think of. My favorite was the heat fan in the bathroom! Life changing! Rice greeted me upon my arrival and gave me a tour of the Gallery House. It’s truly an incredible space! You won’t regret staying here!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

amy & john - accommodating, welcoming, and warm

February 19, 2019 

Rice and his wife Pam were extremely accommodating, welcoming, and warm. They thought of everything one could need on a trip and gave us as guests many personal recommendations both verbally and through their comprehensive and thoughtful reading selections. Your living space could go from warm and cozy to airy and light in an instant with the open-air concept, numerous fans, up-lighting, and easement windows - allowing you to keep the doors open while you listen to music and sip drinks on the porch. Not many hosts offer you a ride to the grocery store and a cutting from their Aloe Vera plant, but these acts were so Texas-friendly we couldn’t keep talking about how wonderful our accommodations were while we were out and about in Austin! FYI - The coolest single Airbnb my husband and I have ever stayed at; and Rice is a talented photographer with beautiful pieces hanging all over. Additionally, the apartment was outfitted with a ton of cool tech to help enhance your stay and bespoke Austin-themed items. The Murphy bed, the layout, the cleanliness, the “cool factor” were all so meticulously well thought out, we thought we hit the jackpot. Did I mention Rice is an excellent communicator throughout the process? We had assuredness every step of the way on this trip thanks to Rice and Pam! Thanks again for the killer time in Austin!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Janice - great place to stay!

Diana & Jorge - the Studio is everything you see plus more

February 12, 2019 

Rice was an excellent host and the Studio is everything you see plus more. Rice has gone to great levels to make your stay better than that of a hotel or even home. There is everything you could possibly need with a host that truly cares about the comfort of his guests. The facility itself is absolutely perfectly laid out with exceptional design and decor. An excellent value. A wonderful stay. We will make this studio our go-to place to stay in Austin. Thanks Rice.

Karishma & steven - we will be back

January 21, 2019 

As much as you read reviews, nothing will prepare you for how thoughtful Rice is towards this place. The space is small in square feet (it is a studio, and spotless clean) but every inch is used so well and it doesn’t feel like a studio. Rice has managed to meet everyone’s needs and wants when traveling. Thank you for having us, we will be back :-)

December 30, 2018 

We had an amazing stay at Gallery House. We couldn’t have asked for a better place for a short city break. There were loads of amazing books to read. Non fiction and fiction. A nice selection of Photography books too. We loved the Google Home Hub. Everything is there for self-catering. Rice gave us so many local tips. Great neighbourhood. We loved it

Taylor & Melissa - The Gallery House was beautiful!

December 9, 2018 

Thank you for your hospitality. The Gallery House was beautiful! All the amenities were perfect, this technologically advanced and efficient home was the perfect place to stay in for the weekend.

Anthony - bravo on your swell place

October 27, 2018 

I just arrived and feel the urge to write my thoughts and impressions. The next few days will be full of caring for my niece so I do not want to crowd the hours out. I am so pleased to be here. I love the whole presentation of “Gallery House.” I fear I will not have an opportunity to use much of the kitchen, but looks like it would more than suit my culinary skills. The Murphy bed is already calling to me, but I must dine out first. Thank you so much. Bravo on your swell place.

(and later)

To say a word or write a paragraph would not give justice to this wonderful spot. Rice was a very thoughtful host. Loved the entire experience.

Kelly & Chris - Cozy, yet hight tech-chic

October 23, 2018 

Rice’s place was super rad. It was cozy, yet high-tech chic. Everything was smart technology and he hasn’t left a detail untouched. The location is safe and central to everything. Rice was extremely prompt in his communications and went out of his way to make our experience unique! He had a fully stocked iPad with up-to-the-minute suggestions on the best ways to experience his place and Austin. We loved all of it - especially his recommendations for pizza (Salvation) and dinner (Salty Sow Brussel Sprout appetizer). We would definitely come back again!

Favorite restaurants:
Kelly: Salty Sow
Chris: Bangers

Loved Austin (first timers), loved riding scooters everywhere, craft beer, Amy’s Ice Cream, Cenote Breakfast, Pinthouse Pizza, and Tex-Mex.

Chris & Jillian - this place is fabulous

October 1, 2018 

Jillian and I think this place is fabulous. A short weekend trip and I think we saw all the best places of interest. Went to the Wildflower Center and it was soooo nice this morning - just remember bug spray! The house is great and no details were overlooked. Comfortable, clean, gracious hosts, what more could you ask for?!? Trudy’s Texas Star was great for dinner - don’t miss it. Rainey Street was fun. Attabar on East 6th - best drinks. We’ll be back!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Alex & Amelia

September 21, 2018 

Thanks for a wonderful stay. You have everything thought of in Gallery House. Our only regret is that we could not stay longer. If we come back to Austin, we will know where to stay.

The Blanton Museum is free on Thursdays and well worth a visit!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Robert - great stay in an elegant apartment

September 17, 2018 

This was an elegant apartment, called The Gallery because it houses Rice's excellent photographs. It is very conveniently situated for the University of Texas campus/LBJ Library and an easy drive downtown, where metered parking and a multi-storey car park by the Capitol are readily available. The welcome was warm and everything ran efficiently.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Robert & Krystal - Hi Tech, proximate, and full of amenities

September 1, 2018

The title sums it up. The apartment is full of technology of every variety. I know Rice does a great job giving a rundown for the equipment. The apartment itself is pristine without a single spot or blemish... anywhere. I would have enjoyed getting some rain because the A-Frame roof would make things fun. It is also a very green apartment with energy savings throughout. I have no hesitation in recommending this apartment and plan to make this property my go-to location whenever Krystal and I are in town. Very nice.

Daniel - One of the nicest Airbnbs

Katie & Kirby - We ate, drank & explored…

August 19, 2018

Thank you for having us in your wonderful home this weekend. We ate, drank & explored as much of Austin as we could in 3 days.

Some of our favorites:
★ EAT - Veracruz All Natural (migas taco - yum!), Blacks BBQ, The Happy Lobster Truck, Biscuits & Groovy!
★ DRINK - Rainey Street! Stop in Hotel Van Zandt for yummy Frozé!
★ EXPLORE - Blanton Museum of Art & South Congress Ave. (SoCo)

We could not have felt more comfortable or welcome in this beautiful home! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Paul & Anne - Very clean and comfortable

July 10, 2018

The apartment was very comfortable. I and my wife especially liked the balcony. 
Everything was so clean. Pam and Rice were very helpful in getting us oriented in Austin of 2018 and also with the latest technology for the technologically-challenged which we are! I really love the climate in Austin, hot and dry. And the air-conditioning in the apartment gave us sufficient respite. The bed and convertible sofa were very comfortable, especially for my wife who was already suffering from a broken rib when we arrived at gallery house. The rest and repose at the gallery house and the climate in Austin did her wonders. The apartment is so well-situated, only a few blocks from the university and about a half mile at the most from a really great supermarket. We're looking forward to renting this apartment again next year.

Diane & Corey - We plan to become Austin residents

May 9, 2018

We have been visiting Austin yearly since 2014. Each time we have stayed in this lovely, well thought out studio! Rice & Pam are the best hosts we have run across during our travels. Their hospitality and recommendations are no doubt one of the reasons we’ve grown to love Austin! They’ve provided us with kind conversations, local flower seeds, and even Prosecco for our 4th wedding anniversary. We’re actually saddened we’ll no long be staying at the Gallery House, however we plan to encourage our friends to experience this wonderful gem. Many thanks for your hospitality.

Sunny & Peter - What a chic place!

May 4, 2018

Peri & Travis - Impeccable clean and well put together

April 30, 2018

Rice’s home was lovely, it was impeccably clean and well put together as well as cozy and inviting. It was the perfect amount of space for two people. From the beginning to the end his communication was excellent, responses were always quick and timely. It was great having our hosts next door, we had the perfect amount of privacy and they still made themselves available if we needed anything! The brief interactions we had were very pleasant and you could tell they take pride in their property and want to show their guests how much they love their city! The apartment was stocked with so much helpful information about tourism, restaurants and all the local attractions Austin has to offer. Overall our stay was amazing and we would definitely stay at Rice’s place again!

Anne & Michael - Excellent place run by really nice people

April 24, 2018

Michael: The place was a perfect studio. The host lives next door and is there for any questions or issues. It was a lovely clean studio full of well thought out touches.

Anne: We stayed at Gallery House for four nights whilst attending the COTA MotoGP (motorbikes). This is a beautiful bijou space which Rice & Pam have created, every detail covered, and some fun gadgets. We have already ordered a soap dispenser for the kitchen! Thank you to Pam and Rice for being so helpful and friendly.

Marisa - Great place to reconnect with friends

April 17, 2018

We enjoyed staying here and loved that it was so close to family! We will definitely stay here again.

Nathalie & Jean Pascal - Enjoyed our time

November 5, 2017

Very nice welcome from our hosts and Texans in general. Surprise even more arriving on halloween! (translated from French)

Very much enjoyed our time in this pretty house. Thanks so much. Merci beaucoup!

Sheila - They Thought of Everything!

October 18, 2017

My daughter and I needed a place to stay during the 2nd weekend of Austin City Limits music festival, and were lucky enough to come across this gem of a home. The owners, Rice and Pam, are extremely nice people--accommodating, communicative, and welcoming. They provided every comfort of home plus more. On Sunday it was forecasted to rain, so Pam brought over ponchos for my daughter and I to take along, they provided mats to take with us for sitting, umbrellas, etc. This is the most well-appointed HomeAway rental we've ever had the opportunity to stay in. We will be back!

Matt - Amazing!

October 3, 2017

The place is awesome and worked out perfect

Daron - A Guesthouse Most Spectacular

August 3, 2017

This was our second time to stay at the Gallery House, and it was every bit as good as the first, and then some. So long as the gods continue to smile upon us, this is the only place we will stay when traveling to Austin. Rice is everything we look for in a host. Accommodating, friendly, knowledgeable, yet not overbearing or intruding. The location is solid and safe. If the traveler be Goldilocks, Rice and his Gallery House are the perfect bowl of porridge, the perfect sized bed, the perfectly comfortable bear house. What I'm getting at is that everything about our stay was perfect. Stay at the Gallery House. You'll be glad you did.

Craig - Great place to stay while working

June 16, 2017

Great place to stay while working during the week in Austin. Love looking at the art after a long day. Can't wait to move to Austin and send my guests to stay here!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Michael - Stay green in Austin

June 12, 2017

Very helping/friendly owners. Everything was well organized (sms before arriving) - we have been very welcomed. Many tips were given to us (and also a lot of brochures) to enjoy the area and even farther away. The place was nice and very clean. Nice terrace. Area is green and easy access by car to downtown and highway. Austin is also a fantastic city.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Deborah - A perfect place for my mini-sabbatical

June 2, 2017

Kudos to you and Pam for creating this very special complete space, private, inventive, sleek, comfortable. A perfect place for my mini-sabbatical. I appreciate every single effort you've made to welcome me

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Marcy & Bobby - A wonderful stay in your home

May 20, 2017

Thank you Rice & Pam for such a wonderful stay in your home! You provided so many amenities and we truly felt like we were at home! We enjoyed a fun filled weekend celebrating my sister's graduation. We loved the Gallery House and all the photographs. Can't wait to come back and visit.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Carol - Perfect Quiet Space

May 8, 2017

Stayed here while visiting my daughter this past weekend. It was just what I wanted for a stay on my own. I felt perfectly safe and relaxed. Quiet street within walking distance of a park and some restaurants. Apt is as stated. I especially appreciated a couple of small items; a magnifying mirror and make-up remover wipes (which I forgot). I imagine that thanks goes to Pam. I appreciated the quiet and restful time I spent reading or sitting on that balcony. I even learned to appreciate Alexa. Lots of windows, books and art to enjoy. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Karin & David - So much in such a little space!

May 1, 2017

I stayed here for 2 weeks and loved every minute of it. Rice has thought of everything, and utilized the small space very well. The bed is extremely comfortable, the shower has great water pressure and the kitchen has anything you could need. The porch is perfect for a morning cup of coffee. Rice is extremely attentive- if you have any questions about where to eat or what to do, he can tell you or you can read all about it in a binder he has collated. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Craig & Amy - What a sweet place to stay

March 25, 2017

What a sweet place to stay! We enjoyed the comfort & hospitality of the Gallery House. The neighborhood is the perfect spot to enjoy Austin from. We loved breakfast at Snooze & walking to Hopfields for dinner & drinks. Thanks for creating such a beautiful, relaxing space & sharing it with us.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Gena - Comfortable and beautiful

March 14, 2017

Rice and Pam couldn't have been any nicer. They left snacks and offered a ride during rain. On top of that their place is comfortable and beautiful!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Judy - The Devil is in the details

November 17, 2016

They say the Devil is in the details - I agree - and staying at the Gallery House - top floor of the garage - is close to Heaven when it comes to a place to stay in Austin.  What a find! Thoroughly enjoyable, comfortable, efficient use of space, quiet and a multitude of options, within and in the neighborhood. Such a pleasant experience to share with family and friends; and it is a model to incorporate into housing development. 

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Ellie & John - Perfect Little House

November 11, 2016

This place really raised the standards for what accommodations! The place goes beyond the normal expectations of being clean, having a comfortable bed, and a good location. They also provide small conveniences that go very far: like butter & jam, salt & pepper, Netflix & HBO! Highly recommended!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Stan & Sally - I loved our stay here

November 6, 2016

Stan & I loved our stay here.  You were both so hospitable and the place is wonderful. Every detail is well designed. Alexa is amazing!  We hope to come back next year for the Texas Book Festival. Thank you for all your kindnesses.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Monika - I loved my stay

October 20, 2016

I loved my stay, what a beautiful "little house" you have created for us. So clean and thoughtful. Thank you for having me.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Robin & Jake - Home Away From Home

September 25, 2016

Loved, loved, loved your sweet "home away from home"!! So comfy & cute! We hope we can call this our "Austin home" for the next four years while our son is at UT.  If it's not always booked! :-)

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Sharon & Dave - A beautiful retreat

August 18, 2016

A beautiful retreat in the Hyde Park area of Austin that was perfect for our stay. Rice and Pam were gracious hosts, giving advice and asking if we needed anything. We loved the detail in the studio apartment and Rice's photography. We spent a lot of time on the porch, reading, drinking our morning coffee. The Murphy bed was very comfortable - it's a real bed. Even though our first day in Austin hit 105 degrees, the studio stayed cool. When we go back to Austin, the Gallery House will be our first choice.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Kenley - Excellent

July 14, 2016

This was a surprise. A very nice space with an air conditioner, kitchen area, a flat screen tv and a nice sofa. Includes a library of popular fiction, southwestern history, and books of art and photography. The walls are adorned with really nice photographic art that was made by Rice, which is for sale. It must have been laid-out by an interior designer because I experienced it as being divided into thirds. Two people could easily live in the place and each would feel as if he has enough personal space. So, as a temporary living space, it's perfect. If you dislike hotels no matter how luxurious, this is the place to stay when in Austin

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Gordon & Deborah - Over the Top Review - A Six Star Review

April 23, 2016

This VRBO lacked for nothing right down to the tiniest detail!! Some of the outstanding features were the Murphy bed, the bathroom shower, the kitchen appliances, and the overall cleanliness. We appreciated the off street parking. The university, shopping and restaurants were all within walking distance. Our hosts were welcoming, generous and helpful. We loved the books. We would highly recommend this property to our friends. If available, we intend to stay here during all our future visits to Austin.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Daris & Erika - What a wonderful place!

April 10, 2016

We came for Moto GP and after spending all day at the track it felt good to come "home" to a place that felt like home.  This is the cutest little house.  It was comfortable and clean. The owners are super sweet. Thanks for making our stay enjoyable & memorable.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Debbie & Gail - We enjoyed the amenities

April 7, 2016

We enjoyed the amenities and careful planning that made the Gallery House so comfortable during our stay in Austin. Comfortable and luxurious.  The BBQ, Tex-Mex, museums, history and music were all terrific - my first trip to Texas!  Thanks for providing our retreat!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Tom & Cindy - Outstanding accommodations!

March 31, 2016

My wife and I spent 3 nights at Rice and Pam's apartment as a short vacation in advance of a conference my wife was attending at the University of Texas. The attention to detail throughout the apartment in design, amenities and cleanliness was excellent. It was a great place to relax and recharge after activities around the university campus and city of Austin. We made very few plans in advance of our trip and found the 3-inch, 3-ring binder full of maps, transit information, restaurant reviews and local activities to be well organized, current and extremely helpful. The local newspaper that arrived at our door each morning was also a nice touch. We have stayed in a number of HomeAway/VRBO rentals in a variety of locations over the years and this was by far the best. If I could have changed only one thing, I would have made our stay a little longer!!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Margaret - Ideal accommodation, ideal location

February 17, 2016

I could repeat everything that's already been said, but instead will just say this: it's all true! If you are not sure whether to make a reservation, do not hesitate. You will have no regrets!
(see guest book in the apartment for their many restaurant recommendations!)

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Judith & Jack - Happy Valentines Day!

February 14, 2016

Always a clean, peaceful, quiet retreat. Thank you for your many kindnesses.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Jeanne & Gary - Lovely and beautiful

January 24, 2016

Thank you sooo very much for making our stay so very comfortable! Your place is lovely and beautiful - all the details add to making us especially comfortable. It was a disappointment to be ill the entire time, but in a comfortable place away from home to let one's body heal. You are gracious and accommodating hosts. We appreciate your care and helpfulness.  Many thanks again.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Nancy & Mark - We set out to escape freezing weather

January 18, 2016

When we set out to escape freezing weather we found greater warmth in Gallery House than we could have hoped for in Austin! Thanks for helping with our spur of the moment, fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants trip by booking at the last minute! This has been a perfectly appointed space, so cozy and artistic for an introductory visit to Austin by my boyfriend. We shall return again when the winter weather isn't our motivation!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Paula - Perfect as a ship's cabin!

November 15, 2015

I stayed in Rice and Pam's perfect place for two months between November 15, 2015 and January 15, 2016. It was the best spot I could have chosen. The attention to detail that Rice and Pam lavish on their small apartment is unbelieveable. I was so lucky - the location is perfect. But I was beyond all reason lucky to have met these lovely people. They were without fail helpful in so many ways, suggesting gardens and museums to visit, and even guiding me in my forays away from Austin - I drove to Marfa for a couple of nights. They are interesting and interested people you will profit from their acquaintance. The apartment is well-appointed and organized as a ship's cabin. You will have everything you need - everything! I love the sleek modern design. Don't miss the opportunity to stay with these thoughtful, generous, and smart Texans.

Carmen & Rick - Gallery House has surpassed them all

November 8, 2015

Rick and I have experienced staying in other guest houses in Austin and other cities, and your Gallery House as surpassed them all. You have a special attention to detail wrapped into this unique space. Lovely neighborhood and so convenient to town and UT. Thank you for driving Rick to our daughter's UT event - he had travelled all day from Los Angeles (cancelled flights, delays) and was frantic to see us.  Hope to be able to stay again.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Tx Traveler - Great place to stay!

September 5, 2015

Very nice apartment with great hosts who were gracious (but not intrusive) and even shared their brownies with us. The apartment is convenient to the UT area. It is an efficiency apartment, but open and light with nice décor. Loved Rice's photos. The murphy bed is quite comfortable. We definitely would stay here again.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Sue  - Excellent hosts, location, and property

July 28, 2015

Rice & Pam have the perfect place to get away in Austin. We've stayed twice now, both times in August, and the apartment stayed comfortable and was just what we needed for our home base. Everything that you could want or need to eat in, and great ideas for eating out. We kayaked at Spring Lake, shopped San Marcos outlets, visited with family at the Hyde Park Bar & Grill, and watched dancers at Ballet Austin. A great trip once again. Thank you!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Mkaylei - Great apartment!

July 3, 2015

The apartment was really comfortable. Had everything you need in a small space. Great shower and loved sitting on the balcony at night. Rice was there to greet us, very friendly and more than willing to answer any questions about the area and anything else we asked about. Would definitely recommend!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Javier - Loft

May 18, 2015

Great place, enjoyed the upgrades and attention to details. Relaxed.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Lee & Shelly - A quick getaway

May 15, 2015

My husband and I just wanted a quick getaway and I'm so glad we found your place. Such a comfortable and cool place! If we ever get to come back, I'd love to stay here. Thanks so much for your hospitality.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

AnnMarie - Home away from home

April 29, 2015

Rice and Pam have created a modern, efficient, green, and fully stocked living space just minutes from downtown Austin, Rainey Street, UT, etc. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Thanks guys!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Anna & Mary - Thanks so much to your both!

April 27, 2015

We had a great time in Austin and hanging out in this wonder place. You've thought of everything to make our stay comfortable! Found some great restaurants, including Mandola's Italian, Rudy's, The Oasis at Lake Travis, Iron Cactus - fabulous peach-mango margarita! Would love to come back!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Allie & Jake - Thank you for everything

April 5, 2015

We stayed here while in Austin and it was absolutely wonderful - we will absolutely be back soon! Everyone took great care of us while we were here and it could have have been a better place to stay with such thoughtful hosts.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Chip & Laura - I can't say enough about this darling rental!

March 25, 2015

The owners, Rice and Pam, have done a great job on this rental! They have thought of everything a traveler might need and more. It was my husband and I and we had plenty of space. Having a bathroom sink outside of the shower/toilet area was so convenient. The bed was great and such a cool idea of being able to be tucked away during the day, yet the curtain provided privacy from the rest of the apartment if you needed it to. For a small space, we never stumbled over each other, even when there were four of us there. We enjoyed the balcony during the day as well as in the evening. The location was very convenient for us as it was close to where our son lives. We are eager to stay again on our return trip next March! Thanks again.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Kellie - I had an excellent stay

February 27, 2015

I had an excellent stay at the Gallery House. This is an extremely clean guest house. There is nothing you would need that is not in the property. However, if you find something you need, Rice and Pam will deliver it to you. The property is, private, clean, safe, and comfortable. The Murphy bed is incredible as well. Perfect for a family of three. Please, if you are planning on staying here treat this property as your own, keep it as nice as it is!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Bill - Fantastic vacation rental in central Austin

February 12, 2015

Rice and Pam are incredibly hospitable, and their Gallery House has all the amenities for a long weekend in Austin. 5/5, will visit again.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Jim & Jane - Our thanks

December 24, 2014

Our thanks to Rice & Pam for being such warm and thoughtful hosts & for making our second Gallery House visit and first Christmas in Austin feel so home-like with festive decorations & special holiday treats. We came to Austin to spend Christmas with our son, daughter-in-law & their darling 8 month old daughter, our first grandchild. During this and previous visits to Austin we have enjoyed the Texas State History Museum, The LBJ Library, the LBJ Ranch, Fredericksburg and a UT basketball game. We also had a great weekend in San Antonio and the Hill Country, especially a nostaglic visit to the Dixie Dude Ranch in Bandera where Jane spent many childhood vacations and where her parents lived for three months during WWII when her dad was working at the air base.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Di - Lovely modern studio stay

December 14, 2014

My husband and I stayed in this modern, cozy studio for 6 days of vacation in December. The accommodations and Rice's hospitality definitely provided for a wonderful first visit to Austin! We've used VRBO on several occasions in the past, but Rice's communication skills, sincere excitement for Austin, and incredibly thoughtful set-up out-shined our past experiences. The studio itself had excellent amenities such as a comfortable Murphy bed, heated bathroom, covered parking, wifi, and Netflix just to name a few. Rice also has TWO binders full of places to visit while in Austin, not to mention great suggestions for restaurants if you ask. We took his advice and walked to a nearby Tex-Mex restaurant, Trudy's, and enjoyed some delicious fajitas and margaritas. The central location of the studio facilitates walking/biking/driving to most any Austin activities we had planned. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone thinking about visiting Austin. I know we'll be staying there the next time we return.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Janet - Sanity for Rent

November 26, 2014

if you need to gather yourself away from chaos, here's the ideal destination. Prep the coffee-pot before you hit the hay in the oh-so-comfortable Murphy bed (the owners have pre-ground coffee for you), take a walk or run around the old Austin neighborhood or through UT, come on 'home' to Gallery House and shower up with hot water that never runs out. Everything you need at your fingertips, including reading material.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Shelly & Stephen - Third year coming...

November 3, 2014

This is our 3rd year coming to Austin & each year you seem to make it better & better. Your attention to detail is wonderful we never seem to want for anything. While we are here - it is truly a home away from home. Warm wishes for the coming year & looking forward to the F1 Grand Prix next year.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Karis - Perfect place for a weekend getaway

October 10, 2014

My fiancé and I stayed in this great studio apartment for ACL weekend and absolutely loved it. Not only was it centrally location, it was equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Rice, the owner, was more than helpful during the booking process and followed up several times before our stay to ensure everything was going as planned. There are several breakfast and dinner places within walking distance (about or less than a mile) and we always felt completely safe. We travel quite a bit and love eclectic neighborhood that are a true representation of the area. Will definitely check this place out the next time we visit Austin!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Jane and Jim - Sweet Retreat

July 5, 2014

Our first stay at the Gallery House was all that we hoped it would be and more. The beautiful cathedral ceiling, reclaimed wooden floors, sleek modern furniture, and balcony porch make it a lovely living space and a perfect retreat at the end of a busy day. Rice and Pam are warm, hospitable, and generous hosts, from sharing restaurant recommendations and their morning newspapers, to bringing us freshly picked peaches from a trip to the Texas Hill Country. As new grandparents, our main activity was helping our Austin son and daughter-in-law with the new baby, but we also enjoyed walks through the Gallery House neighborhood and trips to the LBJ Presidential Library, to the great independent bookstore, BookPeople, and to several nearby restaurants. We're looking forward to our next visit to our Austin family and to the Gallery House and its gracious owners!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Jay - Modern Oasis

June 28, 2014

The other five-star reviews do not lie. This was everything advertised and more.  I wanted a small, quiet, centrally location getaway in Austin, and Gallery House provided it in spades. Despite 90º+ temp in town at the time, the beautifully decorated studio stayed very comfortable, and I spent hours there, reading with my feet up. A bonus was the covered parking that kept my car cool for when I did decide to go out, and there are plenty of great restaurants a short trip (or even a walk) away (Vino Vino, Uchiko, Foreign & Domestic). Campus is easily walkable, and I ran on the Shoal Creek Trail nearby. Rice has thought of everything and responded instantly when contacted. I would happily stay here again.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Marta - Nice Gallery House

June 20, 2014

My experience with Rice and Pam was VERY pleasant: they are always there to make my stay easy and comfortable. This house has gallery walls with photographs familiar yet unknown set me to wondering many times about the place and the motives Rice had to capture them. The apartment is immaculate and full of light, and the location very centric. I would definitely count on Gallery House in the future!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Darren - 3-Month Stay

March 28, 2014

I stayed at Gallery House for three months and enjoyed every moment of my time there.  Most importantly, the owners, Rice and Pam, are the most gracious of hosts. They took the time to point out local hot spots, and the apartment has a great information book about what to do close-by. The apartment has so many great amenities such as wooden floors, very comfortable bed, Air Play speakers that tune in to your iPhone, Netflix, great lighting, comfortable balcony for relaxing, etc. It was a vacation every day of my 3-month stay. And the location is all you could want... walking distance to great restaurants and no more than a bike ride to the downtown live music scene. The campus is withing walking distance, so if you're into UT sports, this apartment is perfect for accommodating your time in town. If you're wanting the downtown/UT campus fee, this is your place. I can't recommend it highly enough.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Matthew - Excellent property and location

February 27, 2014

Great property in a great location; located within easy distance of UT and downtown. The owners are fantastic, being more than helpful when I arrived and throughout my stay. The studio is laid out perfectly and can more than accommodate 1-2 people. Very satisfied with my stay and would recommend to anyone visiting Austin.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Judith & Jack - Staying here is like a "home"...

February 19, 2014

Staying here is like a "home" in Austin away from our "home" with our kids and grandkids. We we need some space from the colds etc. Thanks for thinking of everything to make us comfortable and for being there when we called last minute!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Marko - Excellent location, great hospitality

February 3, 2014

The place is brand new, very well located near campus and in one of the best neighborhoods in Austin. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful, and they are among the nicest people I have met recently! Very satisfied with the experience.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Anna - Very neat, all amenities, close to UT

December 7, 2013

I love the Gallery House! It's small but fits an amazing amount of comfort and convenience. The layout is very smart and well planned, the Murphy bed and pillows are comfortable, and the decor is all nice, new and cute. I was very comfortable there and I was able to walk to the north side of the UT campus. Close by were two grocery stores and lots of restaurants.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Laura - Great cottage and wonderful stay

November 28, 2013

I stayed at the Gallery House over Thanksgiving and it was just perfect. The owners of this property have thought of everything. It is bright, comfortable and very attractive. I am booking it again for January and March. Rice and Pam are the perfect hosts.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Shelly - A very pleasant abode

November 14, 2013

This is second time that we stayed at this property and have already reserved it for next year. The owners were so helpful and welcoming. This included complimentary fresh fruit and wine upon our arrival. Friendly and helpful advice regarding area restaurants and activities was included in a well prepared manual in addition to the owners direct personal suggestions. The place was exactly what we expected and the pictures were perfect. The apartment was spotless and every amenity that we needed was readily available. We would absolutely recommend staying at this property when you're in the Austin area.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Judith & Jack - Austin Studio

November 6, 2013

This was a lovely large studio, well equipped, very comfortable. I would highly recommend it. The owner was extremely helpful, pleasant but not obtrusive. We will most likely use it again when we return to Austin to visit family.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Bajoris - Gallery House

October 11, 2013

Everything was great. Brand new and spotless. The owners were very nice and everything was terrific.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Sue - Modern Space, Thoughtful Owners

July 31, 2013

Immaculate apartment was just what we expected and the owners were available to answer questions and provide assistance as needed.  Location was quiet, but near enough to bus routes & Car2Go that we didn't even need to rent a car. They also provided me a snack due to my *very* late arrival time. I would definitely recommend this rental - and would stay here again in a heartbeat.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Jeffrey - Loved it! Already booked it for my next visit.

May 31, 2013

This is a wonderful modern studio apartment in a great location! The studio is brand new, thoughtfully designed, wonderfully maintained and well stocked! The central location is great too - close to the UT campus and lots of restaurants, music and shopping. And the owners are accommodating and unobtrusive in a separate building on the property. I had a great stay here. I highly recommend.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Matt - Another GREAT stay!

May 16, 2013

My wife and I love this very cool little studio apartment near the UT campus. The location is great, the apartment is very comfortable and feels like you're in a beautiful, light and airy treehouse. The owners are very easy to work with. The photos are very accurate. There's nothing more you could ask from a short term rental. Stay here!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Daron - Awesomeness

May 10, 2013

My wife and I stayed here with our seven year old son for a long weekend. And it was pure awesomeness. There was nothing that Pam and Rice overlooked. From wine glasses to linens to advice, everything we needed was provided without having to ask. This is a place I will stay again and again. I can't speak highly enough of it. Stay here and be happy with your choice of accommodations.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Francois - Very nice

January 31, 2013

The studio is recently constructed.  Very comfortable, quiet and cozy and the owners were very helpful and flexible. Great location close to bus and university.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Pete - Surprisingly beautiful, well appointed

January 22, 2013

The property is a new, well thought out structure with high end appointments. It is located in a quiet neighborhood and close to town and several fun coffee and food spots (long walks though- having a car is convenient and easy with this unit). The owners live on site and are very helpful in all regards. I especially looked forward to a morning coffee or evening cocktail on the south facing balcony while my wife enjoyed her morning jogs in the neighborhood with students starting their treks to campus.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Zach - Clean and comfortable in a great location

January 8, 2013

The apartment is comfortable and very clean with a well-stocked kitchen and bathroom. The bed is firm for anyone who is used to a soft mattress. The location is ideal - never more than fifteen minutes driving from anything we wanted to do or see in Austin. We would return to this property.

NOTE by Rice on this comment:  We added a 1.5" memory foam top to the mattress after Zach's stay.  Everyone loves it.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Maryann - Outstanding Austin apartment

October 26, 2012

What a find. Not only is this studio apartment new and immaculate, it is an environmentally friendly architectural dream. The owners Rice and Pam could not have been more gracious and helpful. Their attention to detail is apparent throughout the apartment. Wonderful neighborhood within walking distance to the UT campus. Covered parking. The listing description and photos were spot on. Only wish we'd had more time to relax at the apartment and enjoy it. We will definitely be back - assuming there's a vacancy!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Lara - Austin touring

October 11, 2012

Our stay in Austin was one of the best whilst traveling across the USA. The apartment was immaculate, everything you see in the photos is exactly how it is. The Murphy bed (original from New York) was great to sleep on, what we needed after some long drives and big days at Austin City Limits. Pam and Rice were amazing hosts and on our next visit to Austin, we'll make sure we drop by and say hi!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Sadie - Fun weekend

October 5, 2012

Amazing property!
Described exactly as on the website. Everything you need for a fun and comfy weekend. VERY clean, close to UT and we utilized the many food suggestions. Would HIGHLY recommend to all friends and family. Can't wait to stay here again.

Teresa - Gallery House in Austin

September 17, 2012

It was random that I ended up finding this vacation rental, and I am so pleased I did. House was perfect! Relaxing! Pleasant! and all around a perfect experience with renting. The owners were so welcoming with plenty of information about how to get around, where to eat & what to see.  Great tips! I have plans to return next year at the same time!

Next time I'm expecting to see displays of professional photographic works from the owners. This house was recently built with environmental considerations. That too, was why it was so comfortable, and clean. Loved the attention to details! Thanks for the pleasant stay in Austin. I look forward to returning.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Susan - Great place - Close to UT!

September 7, 2012

We stayed here for a UT football weekend. The location was within a 15 minute walk to the campus. The neighborhood was very nice, and enjoyable for runners or walkers. The property was immaculate and very well designed. The kitchen had everything that you would need to cook, but why bother with so many great restaurants in the area. The owners were very friendly and helpful. They filled the property with interesting books, magazines and art, which made it feel like a true getaway! We will stay here again!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Mike - Immaculate place

Our daughter is a student at UT. We recently purchased a condo in the same neighborhood and needed a place to stay for a few days while last minute renovations were being completed. I really picked this place just because it was close to the condo and available. Boy, was that a stroke of luck! This place is great! We have been using HomeAway and VRBO for years and have stayed in lots of different places. Rarely, if ever, have we gotten this kind of quality for this price. The place is new and extremely well done. The attention to detail in both construction and furnishing could not be better. Even with 100º+ weather everyday, the place was perfectly comfortable and a joy to come home to. The owners, Rice and Pam, are members of a close knit neighborhood who always know everything of interest that's going on, and were more than helpful giving us any info we needed. Even the dogs Lola (Border Collie) and Tyler (Dalmatian) who live in the fenced yard next door are friendly and fun. This is a true Austin experience and I highly recommend both the place and the people.

Matt - Believe the positive reviews

May 30, 2012

Immaculate apartment that is exactly as depicted in the photos with wonderful wood floors and a cool little balcony for sipping your morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. Arrival was easy and friendly with a quick tour of the property provided by the owner, Rice.  The apartment was gorgeous to look at and had every convenience we could ask for. The location is perfect - easy access to UT and the Drag (Guadalupe) and downtown, 6th Street, Warehouse District, SoCo are all within a very short drive south.  If you lived in Austin, this area would be one of the top choices, so why not stay there when visiting? We will definitely be returning for weekend trips in the near future.

Sara - Great stay In Austin, Texas

May 10, 2012

My son and I were looking for an apartment to stay in while we were visiting family and friends in Austin, Texas. We found the 35th Street apartment and were impressed by the pictures and dealing with the owners prior to arriving.  Once in Austin, our expectations were blown out of the water. It was cute, clean, airy, aesthetically pleasing and has wonderful owners. I also LOVED the location. We were close to the campus, downtown, NW Austin and still able to jump on MoPac to go down south. If you are looking for some place to stay, look no further. Affordable and awesome... what more can I say?

Joe - A really great space

April 13, 2012

We stayed here for a three-day-weekend vacation in April and really couldn't have been more impressed. The rental was very clean and included everything we'd expect and then some. We both thought that it was really remarkable how comfortable they made the entire space feel.
We'd looked around at other hotels and rentals near downtown and this one stood out.  Having gone to UT and having a long-living fondness for the neighborhood, my only concern coming in was that it may be a little noisy.  But that couldn't have ended up being further from the truth.  Actually, being able to open the place up, plug in the iPod and relax reading turned out to be a highlight of our time in town.
Would we recommend staying here? Without a doubt. We're already looking forward to doing it again.

Mark - this one won't be vacant often

April 20, 2012

Well this one won't be vacant often! I travel weekly and stay at numerous high end hotel chains. Having stayed in a hotel the night before I called Rice on Friday afternoon as most of the hotels were overbooked due to bike races and reggae festival; he was so accommodating and set me up for Friday and Saturday nights so I could spend "Dad's Weekend" with my daughter, a UT student. (Even though he had people arriving Sunday). The unit is immaculate, outfitted with the latest technology, extremely comfortable, has everything you need, quiet and centrally located, especially close to UT.  I even strolled through campus to downtown/sixth street in about 40 minutes. I would stay again without hesitation. Thanks Rice!
