Property description

This spacious, open house will make you feel right at home while enjoying all Austin has to offer. We are located within walking distance of Austin's best attractions - Zilker Park, Barton Springs, Lady Bird Lake and the Hike and Bike Trail, Live Music, Congress Avenue, Whole Foods Flagship Store, Local Premier Restaurants and much more! The Austin City Limits Music Festival is a few blocks away, an easy 10 minute walk. All of this in a very quiet, family neighborhood.

Inside the house you will find oak hardwood floors, abundant natural light, stained glass art work and comfortable furnishings. It is fully equipped with a flat screen LCD TV, cable, wi-fi, washer and dryer and all the necessary kitchen amenities. The master suite has a king bed and two rooms have queen beds with twin bunk beds plus a trundle in the remaining room . There are three full bathrooms to easily accommodate everyone. Relax outside on either the upper or lower deck, both of which are private and shaded with a beautiful pecan tree.

Check out the reviews on our garage apartment currently being rented at the same location: VRBO #391981. The comments left by our guests will show you the great location and accommodations we provide.

Location, Location, Location...this place has it! Just one block south of Barton Springs and South Lamar, this property is in the heart of Austin's highly desirable 78704 neighborhood - 'More than a zip code, a way of life!'. You can walk to Zilker Park, Barton Springs, Lady Bird Lake, the hike and bike trail, downtown, Congress Avenue, South First and so much more. A wide variety of great Austin restaurants are just blocks away including top rated Uchi sushi, The Highball, Alamo Draft House, Maudi's and of course restaurant row on Barton Springs (Chuy's, Austin Java, Flipnotics, Green Mesquite, Uncle Billy's, Threadgills, Romeo's, Shady Grove). You can also enjoy live music at numerous venues just a few minutes away. And picking up groceries couldn't be easier at Whole Foods flagship store just a mile away. Whether you want to walk to your event, grab a bite to eat, go for a run around the lake, catch a city bus or actually get in your car to drive someplace, you'll be there in just minutes!

This is our primary residence and we want our guests to enjoy this location as much as we do. We take pride in our home in everything from the front entry walkway to the laundry room and we ask our guests to treat it as they would their own home while staying here. The property will be professionally cleaned before your arrival and you will feel right at home as soon as you walk in the door.

The house was built in 1950 as a single story home, but we added a second story in 2007. With that addition came many improvements including a brand new cool running A/C, a second story deck overlooking the yard, a huge master suite and much more!

Parking: Parking is available on the street and can accommodate many vehicles.

Neighborhood Notes: This is a quiet, family-oriented neighborhood. We respect our neighbors and their property. No big parties are allowed however small social gatherings are quite fine. Please be aware of your noise level at all times. Take a walk around the block and you'll see many people outside enjoying the 'hood with their family and pets. We live on the property and are here to make your stay enjoyable and comfortable, while respecting your privacy. Please let us know if we can do anything to make your Austin experience even better!
