  • Comfy and great location!

    "Great location and very quiet. Beds were comfy and the living area very accommodating. We enjoyed walking to Austin Java in the mornings. Lots of room for our Sister Getaway and we would stay again."

  • Austin Getaway

    "I stayed at downtown view during the middle is September for a long weekend getaway. Overall I recommend this property. The emails and phone calls I had setting up the rental were easy. Carrie and Heather were very attentive and nice to work with. The location was exactly what I wanted. It is a short drive to pretty much everything - Soho, Bartlett Springs, downtown, airport... But close enough! It was secluded, which is what I wanted. The view of the Austin Skyline was amazing. I would sit out on the porch or balcony every morning and evening (when it wasn't raining) to enjoy the quiet and the view. The hot tub was nice, perfect for sitting in when it was raining outside (it isn't covered overhead, but still nice). The memory foam bed was comfortable. I didn't use the other bedrooms, or loft. The master bath was nice. The shower is unique, a little bigger than a normal shower area, and very nice. The kitchen was easy to cook in. The couches were comfortable. Internet was easy to get on. I watched TV but didn't watch any DVDs. The remotes were a little tricky to figure out at first. The decor is very eclectic - which is what Austin is all about! The neighbors cat(s) do hang around the property, but I absolutely loved this. One of them did not come close, but the other was very loving and it was nice to have a companion. I think they would stay afar if you didn't encourage them, just in case you have allergies or don't like cats. It is a house out close to nature, so you have to expect bugs. As long as you kept the porch lights off, it wasn't too bothersome. I also heard frogs or toads throughout the day, but didn't go searching for them. There is a big grocery store a block away (via car). I cooked my own breakfast, but enjoyed the wondeful restaurants Austin offers for other meals. This was a nice experience, far enough away for peace and quiet, yet close enough to join the hustle and bustle of the city easily."

  • Great place to stay in Austin

    "We had a great time at this condo and would highly recommend it! Charles was very welcoming and his recommendations for food and drinks nearby were perfect. We picked the location because I thought 6th street was supposed to be a good nighttime/music district. We visited on our first night, a few blocks away, but realized the nickname "dirty 6th" was accurate. Luckily, the condo is in the east Austin area, which has a ton of really great restaurants, bars, and coffee shops. The actual condo is really nice...no issues at all and fun to watch the city passing by via the view. Would definitely rent this condo again!"

Downtown Austin Vacation Homes Have it All

There are so many adjectives that describe downtown Austin, that one is clearly not enough. It is historic and hip, as well as artistic and alive. It's casual and cosmopolitan, and electric and elegant. Downtown Austin is about as diverse as the people that reside, work, and visit there. Spending time in one of the Downtown Austin vacation homes puts you right in the middle of all that this cultural city has to offer. Anyone that has visited Austin will tell you that the live music is like no other.

Grab Some Exercise in Downtown Austin

The list of things to do and see in downtown Austin is practically endless. One of the most popular things to do is to spend some time at the Lady Bird Lake and Hike and Bike Trail, which is a great place for canoeing, kayaking, and rowing. Downtown Austin lodging is near the 10-mile long Hike and Bike trail, which surrounds Lady Bird Lake. The infamous trail is flat, which makes it easier for long bike rides or drawn-out walks. Auditorium Shores, an expansive venue, is a popular place to enjoy live music, festivals and events from your Austin vacation rentals.
