The Perfect Space

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this rental in Austin! The photos represented the house very well and it fit us perfectly. We had great communication with the owners and she even called me personally after I had sent an email question. Great customer service!

Upon arrival we were greeted with light music playing and a clean, happy environment. They have a fun little screened in porch off the back that feels private. My husband and I shared this house with my mom and felt like we had plenty of space. The bathroom was really nice for a house that size. They thought of every possible need and I was super impressed with the organization and great use of space. Even the master bedroom had a closet many of us envy!

We have a mid century modern home ourselves, so this really made us feel right at home. The kitchen was well stocked and we lacked for nothing.

The location was perfect for us. A few blocks from some relatives and from there we had an easy and charming walk to SoCo for lots of shopping and dining. And our never miss breakfast spot - Magnolia Cafe!

Thanks for such a great place to stay - we will be back!

Explore Austin from this great property!

  • 5 of 5

The yellow door was wonderful for our first visit to Austin. We loved the location - lots of great walks along the river and over to the restaurants on South Congress.

The welcome book was very helpful. Great location, lovely neighborhood, wonderful property.

Great little house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first trip my wife and I made to Austin together, and we loved this little house. The owners were very responsive and helpful in getting us the info needed to get into the house, and answering any of our questions. Once inside the house, they had a book together that had recommendations of restaurants, grocery stores, and other things in the area. The house was very clean and modern, and in a great location. It was a nice quiet neighborhood & we would love to stay here again. After meeting the owners, I would have no problem looking at any other property they managed.

Location

From the Owner

The eclectic, walking-neighborhood, combined with the classic mid-century lines of the home had us hooked! The proximity to downtown and South Congress is just one of the area's attractions. The neighborhood has gently rolling hills offering views of downtown, is filled with gorgeous live oak trees, and has many recreation opportunities.

Activity and Interests

Neighborhood

A ten minute walk takes you to vibrant South Congress Avenue (aka SoCo) — filled with fantastic restaurants, cafes, boutiques, and music venues. Big Stacy Park equipped with 3 acres of walking trails and a heated, spring-fed swimming pool is just a 5 minute walk. You'll also find a playground and wading pool at little Stacy Park - enough fun to entertain even the the tiniest travelers for hours.

The entertaining Second, Warehouse, and Sixth street districts downtown are a 5 minute bus/cab ride. Also near are Barton Springs, Zilker Park, the hike and bike trail along Lady Bird Lake (Town Lake), Auditorium Shores, the Convention Center, the bats at the South Congress bridge, Whole Foods Market, the Long Performing Arts Center, the Capitol and much more.
