Downtown house description

***ATTENTION: If you do not receive a response to your email inquiry, please feel free to call me at 512-472-7985. We do not always receive email inquiries because VRBO/Homeaway is having issues with their inquiry system. ***

This newly renovated, exceptionally located house is close to all the action... live music, museums, SXSW, ACL! One mile to the Convention Center, less than 2 miles to the State Capitol, less than 2 miles to UT Football Stadium, 1 mile to Congress Street Bridge Bats, two blocks to Hike and Bike Trail/park, two blocks to Lady Bird Lake, 1/2 mile to downtown, less than a mile to Austin's newest hippest bars and restaurants, less than 2 miles to Frank Erwin Center, East Austin Art Studio Tour, Austin Film Festival, 6.8 miles from airport, 2 1/2 miles to Palmer Event Center/ The Long Center for the Performing Arts, 1/2 mile to the Mexican American Cultural Arts Museum, and 1 mile to the World Famous 6th Street.

Located a half mile from the Holiday Inn at Town Lake... why pay more ($160- $200 per night) for half the square footage and none of the charm of a cozy cottage.

Come stay in this uber cute house in the heart of it all and see what this amazing city has to offer... you won't be disappointed! Enjoy getting around on the mountain bikes included with your rental, that's a $100 a day value at no extra charge and you won't have to mess with finding and paying for parking. You'll have a few complimentary items waiting to help get your vacation started: organic coffee and teas, and a stock of organic spices(for those of you who like to cook). Please see the link below for more pics, map, and info on Holly Street Digs.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: I've lived in Austin for over 15 years now and love everything this city has to offer. I'm interested in sustainable living and have really taken to the urban farming movement. As a result of my interest in sustainability, I founded Austin's Annual Funky Chicken Coop Tour, which had its first successful tour in 2009.

                      Why the Owner Chose Downtown:
                      I chose Austin because of all the great outdoor activities and the live music scene, which is why I chose to purchase this particular property back in 2004. This location has much to offer... very close to downtown, 2 blocks from the hike and bike trail and Lady Bird Lake, great coffee shops and restaurants, live music, you name it... it's here.
