Property description

Welcome to The Austinite Unit A!

Being just 3 miles from downtown and the convention center, 20 minutes from the Circuit of the Americas, and 1.5 miles to Barton Springs, Zilker park and just two blocks from an entrance to The Barton Creek Greenbelt, this is the ideal spot for an Austin getaway or a business trip.

You're also only a block off of S. Lamar Blvd and several of Austin's favorite places to eat and drink! Kerbey Lane Cafe, East Side King, Gourdough's Public House, The Juice Box, Baker's Street Pub, Torchy's Tacos...just to name a few.

The house has bamboo floors and shower/tub combo in the bathroom, king in the larger bedroom, queen in the second bedroom, great patio with fabulous lighting, sunset views and also a propane grill.

There's high speed wireless internet. We do NOT have cable TV. However we do have an AppleTV connected to our NetFlix account for your enjoyment! You can also log into your own iTunes account and access any of your own content. Or use AirPlay to stream to the TV from your Apple devices.

We have a record player with a diverse record collection that you're more than welcome to take for a spin! Plus, a fabulous cocktail recipe book and vintage shaker set. Try some new libations and let us know if you stumble onto a new favorite! The patio is a fabulous spot to enjoy a drink.

The Austinite also has a back unit, which has a private hot tub. That is HA# 326996. Also can be rented all as one property if you have a larger group coming. But the hot tub is for the use of that unit - not this one.

This property is licensed with the City of Austin and we do collect and pay the Hotel Occupancy Tax. We recommend only renting properties who are registered with the city. Avoid the scams out there!

Go shopping on South Lamar ('SoLa') or South Congress ('SoCo'), eat dinner on Barton Springs road (restaurant row), take a dip in Barton Springs pool, go hiking in the gorgeous Greenbelt (which has an entrance around the corner from this property), or hit the town on 6th street for some of the best nightlife and live music in the world!

Also, within just a couple blocks over to The Broken Spoke - which has some great texas music and honkey tonk dancin!

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: I'm a life-long Austinite and that is definitely part of the reason I choose to call this property The Austinite! I grew up about a mile or so from this property and am thrilled to call Barton Hills my home.

Why Zilker:
This property encompasses so much of what makes Austin awesome. You can walk and bike to dozens of restaurants, Zilker Park and The Barton Creek Greenbelt!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have two other rental units that actually share a driveway so if you have a larger group we can definitely accommodate!
