You will love this location! Walk to Austin's favorite hot spots for food and entertainment. You'll be steps away from South Congress Avenue (SoCo). Within one block there is a great local bar with live music, a spa, a local favorite restaurant (open 24 hours), and a souvenir gift shop. In just a few minutes, you'll be shopping, eating, and keeping it weird! A 10-15 minute walk will get you downtown to see the bats fly. This house sleeps up to 6 guests in 2 bedrooms with an additional sofa bed. Cheerful and clean with a large fenced-in backyard, the house can accommodate children of all ages. Washer/dryer unit is included. *Same day bookings are welcome...just contact us*
Modern furnishings and a sunny dining area offer guests a comfortable getaway. One bedroom offers a queen-size bed and the other has a full-size, both dressed in plush, quality linens. The sofa pulls out into another queen bed and there is an available twin size roll-a-way, too. Flat screen TVs, HBO and Showtime, plus wi-fi are provided for downtime in between trips to nearby live music venues and beer gardens.
The spacious yard is perfect for a game of frisbee, horseshoes, and relaxing by the fire pit. A large kayak is available to take to one of the many nearby lakes (at your own risk, of course).
The house is a short walk away from many Austin landmarks such as Stacy Pool, which is spring fed and open year round, CBoys music, Lucy's Fried Chicken (made famous at ACL), and The Continental Club, an Austin original for live, local music. The house is a great location for a relaxing vacation in Austin as well as being perfectly located for SXSW, ACL, and COTA events.
