We'd love to have you enjoy Austin in one of Austin's coolest neighborhoods!!
This comfortable 2BR/1BA house is located just south of downtown Austin and minutes from Zilker Park. The house is walkable to South Congress (SoCo), the popular South First street, and South Lamar.
The house was completely remodeled in 2009. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances and has amenities for cooking. Dunkin Donuts coffee is featured, as well as flavored creamers for coffee. Welcome snacks and a breakfast treat are available for each guest upon check-in.
In Spring 2015, we did some cooking upgrades, including a new knife set, and redecorated throughout the home. We hope that you enjoy the new cookware we've provided in order to make your stay more comfortable.
The house has two bedrooms, one with a queen pillow-top bed and one with a king posturepedic bed - both exceptionally comfortable. Both bedrooms offer closet and drawer space for guest use. The living room couch pulls out into an additional full-sized bed. Sleep sound machines are provided in both bedrooms of the house for sensitive sleepers.
The bathroom has both a shower and a tub and the house is stocked with plenty of clean towels and linens. The house has wireless internet and over 100 channels of cable TV.
A front porch with two wicker chairs offers a great spot for relaxing and enjoying the Austin vibe, and the shaded table on the back porch is perfect for enjoying the private backyard.
There is a drive way for 2 cars as well as off-street parking. There a full-size washer & dryer in the house available to guests with stays over 4 days.
The house is a 5-minute car ride to downtown Austin, Lady Bird Lake, Zilker Park and the Barton Springs Pool.
Austin’s bus system, Capitol Metro, costs only $1 per single ride or $2 for an all-‐day pass. The number 5 (Woodrow/S 5th bus) picks up one block away at the corner of S. 5th and Mary and goes directly into downtown (a 10 minute ride). There are also routes that pick up on Lamar. Numerous other connections pick-‐up at various locations throughout downtown.
Bike rentals available! We've partnered a local shop to provide our guests with the option to rent bicycles during their stay (for an additional fee). Please advise us if you're interested in this service so we can help get you set up for bike delivery/pick-up.
Three nights stays are preferred (and required for special events such as ACL, SXSW, F1), but two-night stays will be considered for an additional $50 fee (except if booked within a week of stay or if booked for weeknights only). *Please inquire with me first before booking over festivals and holidays to ensure pricing is accurate (Instant Book discouraged for those occasions). Pets stays are accepted on per guest basis and charged a pet fee.
Myself and my property manager, Natalia, work hard to respond timely and quickly to your inquiries or any needs during your stay. We will make sure you are taken care of while staying in my home.
This property is permitted by the City of Austin and complies with Austin's short-term rental laws. Permit #: V00000913445.

About the owner: I own my own business and am from Austin, TX. I love to travel - I'm trying to get around to seeing as much as I can! I've traveled to all fifty states and thirteen countries.
I've been renting out my home for about 3 years now and love meeting the many people from all over, as well as hearing their stories why they're visiting Austin.
Why the Owner Chose Bouldin: I purchased my house to be an active part of Austin. When staying at my house, you are in the middle of it all - you are a quick walk, bikerride, or car ride from almost anywhere. The neighborhood, Bouldin Creek, is also one of Austin's quirkiest neighborhoods - in the heart of the infamous 78704 zip code. You will love your stay here!
The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow: Walking to breakfast or lunch at neighborhood cafes and fine dining restaurants, hopping on the City bus one block away, walking to the neighborhood park one block away, a twenty minute walk from Auditorium Shores and Ladybird Lake, a quick bike ride to Zilker Park, staying in the same neighborhood as residents movie star Elijah Wood and musician Robert Plant!
