vacation rental description

South Austin Serenity House sits overlooking the 7th Fairway of the Onion Creek Golf Course (private), located in gorgeous and serene Onion Creek. This fully furnished two-story 3200 sq ft home was recently updated with new travertine floors, new carpet throughout, and a completely remodeled kitchen: new refrigerator, new range, new dual ovens, new dishwasher, and new microwave; as well as a blender and a 12 cup coffeemaker. Wonderful home, great neighborhood, with great neighbors, and the neighborhood association employs a 24/7 patrolling private security firm. Thanks in advance for being respectful of our neighbors and property.  Onion Creek is one of Austin’s southernmost neighborhoods conveniently located right off of I-35, a major north/south highway extending from Mexico to Kansas. While quiet and peaceful, the Onion Creek neighborhood enjoys easy access to I-35 either traveling north to downtown Austin and the Capitol or the University of Texas Campus (approximately 7 miles) or also south to San Marcos, New Braunfels, Gruene, (30-45 minutes) and to San Antonio Texas (about 60 miles). 
If wanting to soak up the serenity and relax, enjoy your morning coffee sitting on the covered downstairs back porch looking over the 68 x 20 foot deck, and just below, where in the early mornings deer graze, squirrels play, and bird calls greet the day. In the evenings the back deck is a great place to enjoy a glass or two of wine and unwind. Downstairs the large den (huge floor to ceiling windows on the golf course) contains new leather furniture, a Flat Screen 42 inch HD TV, and is adjoined by the breakfast area, the kitchen, a formal dining room that seats 14+, and the formal living area with a fire place.  Upstairs (centrally heated and cooled by an individual upstairs unit) 4 bedrooms, three of them with private doors onto the upper 58 feet of porch, are spacious with large closets for storage. The upstairs has two full baths, one with a large walk-in shower, and the only facility downstairs is a half bath.

house rental amenities

A serene feel and the great location are the main amenities, with easy access to all major highways (inbound/outbound – North, South, East and West), (10-12 minutes to Austin Bergstrom Intl Airport), (approximately 10 miles to Barton Springs), and (approximately 12 miles to the University of Texas, central Austin campus). Add a gracious, serene, and beautiful home in a safe and manicured neighborhood, and you have all the main requirements for a wonderful visit to Austin or to central Texas and the Texas Hill Country.
Planning a Family Reunion or attending a local wedding, why not all get together in the same home?
Attending Graduate School, waiting to take possession of a new home construction, reporting for a new job, attending graduation ceremonies at one of the many Universities, quarter everyone here; or put off your re-location decision here, until you find what you’re looking for.
