Brentwood house description

Please contact us before booking. All our rental homes are fully licensed [Austin license # 111861].

If you have a larger group, we have several different sized rental homes in the area, so we can always accommodate your group!

This gorgeous Craftsman home built was in 1933 but completely remodeled in 2012 from the ground up. Upon entering, you will find newly refinished hardwood flooring throughout. The home boasts a completely remodeled kitchen and bathroom with new stainless appliances, granite, and faucets & fixtures. The home is 850 sqft, but feels larger thanks to the open floor plan and additional sun porch.

The home has 2 queen beds, a queen pull out sofa in the living room, and a pack & play crib. We make all of our bedrooms cozy and comfortable with side tables, lamps, dressers for clothes, curtains and blinds for privacy. The living room has plenty of seating, a 47' flat screen TV, books/games/dvds, and is open to the dining room where the table expands and there is seating for 6. And the home only gets better when you enter the sun room - enjoy a good book or just sit and relax in privacy. Continue outside and grill some burgers, relax in the backyard, or just swing on the front porch. And the best part is this secluded retreat is just a short 8-10 minute walk to the train which will quickly take you downtown! The train drops you off in front of the convention center in about 18 minutes! *

AMENITIES: The home comes stocked with fresh linens & towels, soaps, a fully equipped kitchen, spices, etc... We provide all the things you might need in the kitchen including a coffee maker and grinder, toaster, blender, pots/pans, bake ware, and of course dishes, glasses, and utensils. There is a full size washer/dryer in the laundry area which is stocked with detergent, ironing board/iron, and household supplies. Guests may park in the driveway.

***All driving distances, distances to city transportation, mileage, and cab fares in listing are based on google maps information, CapMetro information, and/or past guest comments. Please visit CapMetro's website for updated train schedules and times to downtown***

To get downtown, the home is only a block from the bus stop, a cheap cab ride, or a short drive! Looking for activities or your nearby destination?

                          Manager info

                          Year Purchased: 2012

                          About: We've lived in Austin since 1996 and love the city! Amanda has been a licensed Realtor in Austin for 12 years, and we personally manage all of our rental properties - both furnished and unfurnished. We love meeting our guests from all over the world and creating a wonderful and memorable visit for them in Austin. And when we're vacationing, we always enjoy staying in vacation rentals and bed & breakfasts as well!

                          Why Brentwood:
                          Developers were getting ready to tear down this home, but we just couldn't see it go! We moved it to its new home (yes, we moved the entire house!), and then renovated it into this gorgeous vacation rental. The home is a 1930's Craftsman home updated to 2012 amenities! It's an easy walk to many restaurants but the home is still tucked away in a quiet neighborhood. The best part is the short 8 minute walk to the Crestview Lightrail Station which takes you downtown, as well as other places around Austin!

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          We have personally managed all of our rental properties for 10 years and take pride in each home we own. Our goal is to make sure every guest has a wonderful experience staying with us! The City of Austin requires that Vacation rentals obtain a license for legal operation. Legal operations will have their license number in their listing.
