VRBO Bear stayed here:
I was very happy to stay in this beautiful home in the lovely city of Austin, Texas for a long weekend. The home is centrally located, just a couple minutes from downtown. I could crawl right down the street to a number of shops, bars and restaurants (there is so much to do nearby this home!). I was also able to make my way down to the nearby Town Lake Trail for a morning jog.
Austin is a wonderful city filled with so much to see and do. In addition to everything within walking distance of the home, there were many greenbelts and nature areas to make a bear feel right at home. If you like the night life, you'll find clubs and theaters within easy driving distance. If you're a history buff, Austin is filled with many historic sites, from the state capitol to The University of Texas. Or, if you would rather relax, the home has a very nice porch and balcony that you can sit on while you enjoy the beautiful weather. I cannot wait to make a return visit to this gorgeous Garden Street house.

Austin is a wonderful mix of music, culture, university students, outdoor activities and artists.
The Garden Street House and Apartment is only 1 mile from the downtown area where live music is played 365 days a year.
The Convention Center is also 1 mile from the Garden Street House with public transportation delivering you right to the front door.
The Austin City Limits Festival and SXSW film/music festival are always exciting and fun for all participants.
Austin has great weather all year, so its a great place to get warm when its cold up in the northern winters.
Rent the House and the Apartment for large groups, or for an intimate visit, the apartment has a view of the trees in the trees...great for a romantic getaway.
The House is great for families or groups up to 6 people. Rent both units , House and Apartment upstairs (separate entrance and living space) with availability for 10 people.
Other Activities: Basketball Court, Parks, Hike and Bike Trails, Elementary School, Close to Downtown
Year Purchased: 2001
Why the Owner Chose Downtown:
This is a wonderful house because of the nearby parks, lake and its close access to downtown, 6th street and everything cool! It was built in 1912 and has original wood floors, which I found during renovation after peeling up layers of carpet, vinyl and tar paper. It has since been renovated, taking out walls, adding arches and adding vaulted ceilings...and the apartment upstairs. It is now a combination of new and old. Bold colors complement the various rooms of the 1700 square foot downstairs house. The 'treehouse' apartment upstairs is an additional 600 square feet including a private deck in the trees with a modern urban design and red wood floors.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The big covered front porch of the downstairs house reminds me of the slower simpler days of the early 1900's when neighbors used to spend alot of time outside drinking lemonade to stay cool in the hot Austin summers, waving to neighbors and enjoying the occasional rainstorm while sitting under the protected large porch. Don't worry, we have central AC/Heat to keep you cool in summer and warm in winter...but you can still enjoy the rain and wave to the neighbors on this wonderful porch. The upstairs apartment for our use so I could start renting out the downstairs area for vacation rentals. The apartment is very nice! Now we live elsewhere and rent the apartment separately and with the house. The apartment has high grade red wood floors, textured ceilings, peach and blue interior colors along with high end urban modern furnishings. The private entrance and private balcony in the trees give this apartment a treehouse feel. I lived there for about a year, and then have since started my own family and moved to South Austin. That is why both the upstairs and downstairs are now vacation rentals but with a homelike feel. Downstairs you find the big country home with antiques, and upstairs you find hip, cool treehouse with a modern design. They can be rented together or separately depending on your needs. Thank you for visiting my Garden St. House and Apartment Site. Hopefully we'll see you here soon!
