Just 2 blocks from Lady Bird Lake and 1 mile east of downtown you couldn't ask for a better location. This is the perfect rental if you're visiting Austin for any of our popular events or festivals.

The popular Rainey Street Bar/Restaurant District is just a short walk away and the heart of downtown is just a few blocks past that. You can walk right down to the scenic Hike and Bike Trail on Lady Bird Lake and follow it all the way into downtown or Zilker park where they host the ACL Music Festival. Plenty of local coffee shops, restaurants, food trailers, bars, and night life to keep you happy. The perfect location for anyone that wants to experience the sights of Austin with minimal or no driving.

Located in the Holly Neighborhood just east of downtown. Some locals refer to this neighborhood as 'Country in the City' because it's so quiet and peaceful but it's also right next to downtown, within walking/biking distance to everything.
Festival Beach Park is just 1 block from the front door. The park hosts a ton of great weekend festivals throughout the year as well as several regattas (rowing races) hosted by the Austin Rowing Club
Lady Bird Lake hike and bike trail is just 3 blocks from the rental. It runs along the lake and provides a scenic walk to downtown and Zilker park where the annual ACL Music festival is held. Great for jogging and walking!
Rainey Street Bar District is about 1 mile west of the house. It's got a ton of great patio bars that were converted from old historic houses. This area provides a much calmer atmosphere for those that don't want to go to the popular 6th street bars. It also includes a park of great food trailers where you can sample great food made by locals.
Barton Springs pool is a 3 mile bike ride from the house. This spring fed pool is the best place to cool down and spend an afternoon on those warm summer days. The pool is a popular venue for year-round swimming, as its temperature maintains a narrow range from about 68 °F (20 °C) in the winter to about 71.6 °F (22.0 °C) in the summer
The trendy South Congress shopping district is about 2 miles from the house. There are a ton of great restaurants and unique Austin shops for clothing, art, trinkets, antiques, etc.. I recommend checking out Home Slice pizza if you make it to South Congress.

About the owner: ****** We respond to ALL emails within 1 hour! ******
I grew up in Oregon and moved to Austin in 2007 in search of sunny weather. The 300+ days of sunshine per year has been a welcome change from the rainy Northwest and I love everything about this great city. There is never a lack of things to do in Austin! Outdoor activities, festivals, great food, swimming holes, Longhorns football, nightlife, friendly people... It's impossible to get bored and run out of things to do in Austin.
Why the Owner Chose Downtown: Location and charm! We chose this property because it's in one of the best locations in Austin. It's close enough to walk Downtown but just far enough away to remain peaceful and quiet. The neighborhood is a hip area with a lot of great bars, coffee shops, and restaurants.
The Unique Benefits at this House: This home is unique because it's an older home that's been completely re-done on the inside. It's got a ton of character and is located on a quiet street right near the lake.
