Property description

This property is beautifully equipped and freshly remodeled three bedroom and one bath home. Enjoy the shaded patio and brand new kitchen! Five miles to downtown Austin, cheap rates! Great for families traveling with a pup because there's a wonderful fenced back yard. You're very close to Central Market, Yoga Yoga, Black Swan Yoga, hiking trails, and all only 5 miles from downtown Austin! Two of the bedrooms have queen beds, and then the third bedroom has two twins - so it's quite comfortable for 6 adults! We know there's only one bath and we with there were two but that's why the rates are cheap!
