About the owner: Hey HomeAway people! I've lived in Austin for almost 2 years, and it's a great place! I'm originally from Montana, but have lived all over, most recently NYC where I completed my residency in Emergency Medicine. I completed medical school in San Francisco, and undergrad in Boston, and I can say that Austin can be just as unique and exciting as these cities; especially during the festivals!
Why the Owner Chose SoCo: This house is a beautiful, comfortable, modern home in one of the most desirable, dynamic, and fun neighborhoods mere minutes from downtown Austin. Some of the city's best bars, restaurants, and music venues are within steps of the front door. You will be able to enjoy Austin at it's finest!
The Unique Benefits at this House: I liked this home instantly. It is a modern house with a great open floor plan and vaulted ceilings throughout. It's located on a quiet street, but steps from two of the most popular streets in town for nightlife, dining, and shopping. Expansive backyard with a deck, BBQ grill, and hot tub. It's a very comfortable place to live/stay, and of course...location, location, location!
