Downtown condo description

Welcome to The Downtowner! Property is licensed for short term rental as required by the City of Austin.

Gated complex in the heart of downtown across the street from the Marriott/Residence Inn and the Austin Convention Center. This is our downtown Austin second home and it's walking distance to 100+ downtown restaurants/bars, Congress Avenue, Second street district, Warehouse district, Downtown 6th, newest Rainey Street area, and Lady Bird Lake.

Cross the bridge for access to South Congress Avenue's funky and trendy shopping and many original Austin eats! Easy access to Zilker Park, Barton Springs area, Auditorium Shores, and new areas on the East Side!!

CapMetro Airport Flyer runs every 30 min to/from Austin-Bergstrom Airport and the condo for only $1.50. Condo is also next to the MetroRail and Austin B-cycle rental program.

Call around the hotels downtown and find this unit is much larger, has a living space for everyone to gather, and less $. Plus downtown hotels add parking costs. This 2 bedroom with queen beds, 2 full bathrooms, and full size pullout sleeper sofa can accommodate 6 adults. Condo is fully furnished and the beds and sofas were recently purchased. Central AC, washer/dryer, and flat screen with 75+ channels, blue-ray player.

Secure wifi (20 Mbps). Not shared with other units and ethernet access!

No car is needed if you want a pedestrian friendly opportunity! But if you rent a car, then complimentary secured/gated parking is available on site.

Property has a professional property manager and sound reducing windows installed in all bedrooms.

**Please note this unit is on the 2nd floor and no elevator available so do not lease if you cannot bring bags up 2 floors or stairs are a problem.**


Please - No Smokers and WILD PARTIES - DO NOT BOOK IF YOU CANNOT ADHERE TO NO LOUD PARTIES/NOISE.


No Pets


The neighbors are full time adult professionals/residents and the unit may not be leased for a party. It's a great home and home base for people wishing to visit Austin and stay downtown. Walk across the street to one of the bars for time to be loud and crazy.

                      Why Downtown:
                      We lived in the complex for 4 years ourselves and we loved that we could walk to so many great places. We enjoyed activities on Lady Bird Lake, attended festivals at Zilker/Auditorium Shores/downtown, met up with friends at nearby restaurants, enjoyed South Congress, and discovered so many new places nearby. It's a very convenient location. We moved as we needed more space and wanted a backyard too:)
