An urban experience in a wonderful, upscale neighborhood.

Come stay in a wonderful 1930's remodeled home complete with tile and bamboo flooring, urban design furnishings and unusual lighting, so close to the downtown hub of Austin.

Walk out the door and enjoy coffee shops, numerous restaurants and cafes, a movie theatre with dinner (Alamo Drafthouse), eclectic clothing shops, pizza, Barton Springs, Fine Dining, Zilker Park...all within moments from the front door. Walk just 5 minutes and you have the world of completely cool Austin at your beck and call.

3 bedrooms, 2 full baths. 2 Queen Beds, 2 Twin Beds, 1 Convertible Bed.

As you walk into this beautiful home, light brown bamboo and tile floors greet you with designer fans, concrete molded kitchen counters, new kitchen appliances as well as comfy urban design furniture newly bought from Eurway and Urban Design. The couch in the living area makes into a bed for a versatile additional sleeping area. The glass dining table is expandable if you have a large group.

To your left, the front bedroom greets you with a soft, full size convertible bed. This room is versatile and functions as a den and an additional private sleeping area. This can also be used as an office area with an expandable desk/table.

Go through the shared bathroom to the middle room with the unique comfy queen bed with a silver angular frame. A designer ceiling fan will keep you cool along with central Air Conditioning.

The kitchen is brand new with a gas stove, toaster oven, microwave, dishwasher and disposal.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Welcome to The SoLa Lodge, the hip, cool house close to everything. The Sola Lodge is located in a great Location in the upscale Zilker Neighborhood close to SoLa or South Lamar Business District. Shopping, bars, cafes and more are just moments out the door, easy walking distance to so many wonderful places. Restaurant Row is about 1 mile and Barton Springs and Zilker Park is in the same neighborhood. Inside the house, unique ceiling fans and beautiful bamboo floors await you. Walk to Shops, Food, Movies (theatre is being re-built at this time), Music and more! The house is beautifully decorated..with 2 queen and 2 XL twin beds that are new, comfy and perfect for families or groups. The twins are great for adults too because they are extra long. I love this house and location. And I hope you come and visit and see what I mean. I take great care of the house and have a high standard in cleanliness and maintenance. With a fully furnished kitchen, concrete counters, dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven and new dishes, pots and pans, you will find yourself ready to cook. Just bring food. It's special for me to have a wonderfully furnished home that I can share with many people. So come on out, it would be great to have you here at the Kinney Ave. House.

Why the Owner Chose Zilker:
The Austin area has the coolest zip code. That is 78704, and that is where this house is located. Zilker Park Neighborhood is gorgeous with large trees, great walking and safe. Beautiful, a bit urban and enticing. The house is not only close to downtown and 6th street (2 miles), but close to the newest happening area of South Lamar or SoLa. The house is equipped with the newest furnishings, bamboo floors, and urban modern design. Wifi and cable TV are also included. Come enjoy the house, but even more, come visit unique Austin...because this house is right in the middle of everything cool and wonderful about Austin. Irie Bean Coffee House, Saxon Pub, Alamo Drafthouse Theatre, Zilker Park, 6th street and so much more within walking or close driving distance.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The SoLa Lodge has 3 bedrooms, with 2 queen beds, two twin Beds and convertible couch in the front room. Additional blow up mattress available. This allows for different kinds of groups to use the house to the fullest. The tile and bamboo floors, and no pets policy allows for a clean environment that is great for adults that want to visit and enjoy Austin. This urban location is nestled in the 78704 neighborhood, while being on the edge of access to all that is happening in Austin. Come enjoy the SoLa Lodge. It will give you an All Access pass to fun in Austin.
