Welcome to the East Austin Chateau! This 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom house is ideal for groups up to 12 that wish to stay downtown in a single property. This house is fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy your stay. Enjoy a full kitchen, on-site parking, a rooftop deck and observatory with amazing downtown views, a covered balcony off of the master suite, and two patios (one front and one back) for lounging outdoors on our lovely Texas nights.
Located within walking distance of the 6th Street Entertainment District, the warehouse district, downtown shopping, all of the hip restaurants and bars on the East Side, and UT Stadium, this location is very central on the east side of downtown Austin. You do not need a car unless you want one. Public transportation is also nearby, including the Plaza Saltillo Station for Metro Rail and numerous bus stops throughout the neighborhood.
Take advantage of this rare opportunity to enjoy Austin's downtown skyline and the serene views over the gorgeous Austin skyline. Staying here means that you get to walk to restaurants, coffee shops, live music and more. The outdoor area has been designed to create a peaceful escape right in the middle of town. This is urban living at its finest.
There are so many incredible places to eat, drink, and be entertained in Austin that it would be impossible to list it all. From the Chateau, you can easily walk to many great places on the east side of downtown. Grab a slice less than a block away at East Side Pies, or sit down and eat at the Hillside Farmacy. Franklin's BBQ is just a few blocks, and East End Winery is practically next door. The Austin Public Library and George Washington Carver Museum and Cultural Center are both steps away, along with the Hearts and Robots Hair Salon. If you want to do yoga, pilates, or get a massage, there is a small studio a block from the house.
Within a handful of blocks, you can also visit Quickie Pickie, Shangri-La, Papi Tino's, Takoba, East Village Coffee, Tamale House East, Dario's, The Grackle, Cisco's, La Perla, The Eastern, Gypsy Lounge, Hotel Vegas, Volstead Lounge, The Brixton, Sputnik, Buenos Aires Cafe, Violet Crown Social Club, Cheer Up Charlies, White Horse, East Side Showroom, Angie's, Kebabalicious, Karibu, Vintage Heart Coffee, Wuwu Sushi, and much more.

Absolutely the best location in Austin especially for the size of the house and number of people it sleeps. The house is 1 block away from Franklin BBQ (#1 in Texas), Hillside Farmacy (excellent brunch and dinner), Blue Dahlia (cozy cute brunch and dinner), and other top Austin restaurants and bars. It takes 8 minutes to walk to 6th St and 12 minutes to walk to UT Football Stadium. Ideal for large groups that want a single downtown location to walk to and from the restaurants, bars and football games!
