Downtown cottage description

Welcome to Austin, Live Music Capital of the World! This lovely guest home is located a little over a mile east of downtown and the Capitol Building, with easy access to the Sixth Street/Red River Music District and SoCo (South Congress Avenue). The guest home has been thoughtfully spaced on a large, landscaped lot to maximize privacy from the main house, with a perimeter fence and spacious dog run for those guests who are traveling with their pooch.

Enjoy luxurious conveniences with an artistic flair: a king-sized bed handmade from Texas mesquite, a full-size kitchen with counter top bar, and framed posters of classic Austin musicians and venues are just some of the cool features of this unique vacation lodging. Other amenities you'll appreciate are a 32' flat-panel HDTV complete with surround sound and digital cable (on a fully-articulating wall mount, so you can watch movies in bed!), a CD & DVD library of local musicians and Texas film classics, wireless broadband internet access, and an iPod dock for your own tunes.

I've also put together a comprehensive guidebook to help you find the 'Best of Austin'--those independent businesses (restaurants, record stores, boutiques, etc.) that are the cornerstone of this amazingly diverse and vibrant city. The guidebook contains maps, menus, and information on our natural wonders (including the incomparable Barton Springs/Zilker Park) and cultural highlights (such as the Blanton Museum of Art and the South Austin Museum of Popular Culture), as well as a list of all the places to hear great music!

From your off-street parking spot, it's less than a mile to both Manor Road and the historic 11th Street Corridor, hosts to over a dozen local cafes, coffee shops, and unique bars; it's also under a mile to the UT football stadium, home of the four-time National Champion Longhorns! A patio set and a hammock accentuate a pretty garden setting for a relaxing afternoon, or take a bounce on the trampoline (or a ride on the Schwinn cruiser bikes) and energize yourself for another day of sights and sounds in Austin.
