Hyde Park house description

House is 2 BR 1 BA mid-century modern home with fresh paint and newly-refinished hardwood floors throughout. Master bedroom has queen Simmons Beauty rest queen bed, second bed/office has brand new queen Ikea foam futon. Large newly-tiled bath. Kitchen open to living room and has a dishwasher, disposal, microwave, stove, bottom-freezer fridge, coffeemaker, juicer, toaster oven and all pots/pans/silverware/dishes/equipment you could need for your stay. Gas grill outside too.

To me, the best part of this house, considering how nice weather is in the Spring, is the outdoor space: big shady front porch and a covered dining table for six in front of cozy fire pot. Festive lights hung along fence and garden with herbs for cutting. If not in the mood to grill/cook - walk to LOTS of neighborhood restaurants/bars/coffee shops.

Fast wifi, flat screen TV with streaming Netflix and Blu-Ray DVD player. Washer and dryer. Private fenced driveway parking.

This central neighborhood is close to the Univ. of Texas campus so it's full of cool old coffee shops, bars and restaurants. Visit 43rd and Duval for Hyde Park Grill, Mothers Vegetarian, Quackenbush Bakery, Julios Tex-Mex or Asti Italian restaurant. 51st Street has Foreign and Domestic, Drink Well and Work Horse. 51st also has some great food trailers like Melvins, Biscuits and Groovy and Taco Bout It. Be sure to check out some of the new local favorites too - Kome Sushi or House Pizza - just four blocks away!

Even though house is only 3.5 miles away from downtown, during SXSW, cabs/bikes/pedicabs are much easier than driving yourself. A very regular city bus runs directly down Red River to both 6th street and UT campus - the stop is just a block away. If you're driving in and have bicycles with you (all rental places I know if are already sold out for SXSW) a bike is really an ideal way to commute.

                          Owner info

                          About the owner: I've enjoyed staying in B&Bs, small inns and private homes for years so I know the advantages of living like a local. I'm excited to welcome guests to my favorite city in the US! This is my first listing on this website but I've rented out my house for SXSW independently in the past and I've lived in Austin for 20 years so ask me anything.
