Recent Downtown reviews

  • Great location-many things within walking distance

    "I'm not sure I'll ever stay in a hotel again after staying here. All the beds and pillows were very comfortable. We enjoyed being able to cook our own breakfast. Grocery store is only a short distance away. Stairs to upper level are a little steep, so my elderly mom got the king size bed to herself. Upper bedroom and loft were very comfortable with ceiling fans in all of the sleeping areas. The condo looks just like it does in the pictures. While we were there, we met the cleaning staff and the owner/manager. Everyone was great to work with - prompt efficient service. We checked out Franklin BBQ, the coffee shop on the corner, Lady Bird Lake, the graffiti art gallery, the capitol and went to a wedding all in one weekend thanks to the great location."

  • ACL Weekend

    "Great house- very clean and relatively close to everything downtown. The bedding situation with mostly single people was a little tight but we made it work. Overall great experience...lots of outdoor patio space and very large kitchens....those were to two best amenities at the house. Great owners- very responsive and kept the house very clean."

  • Great Location, Great Apartment!

    "Craig and Elaine were wonderful hosts and have a lovely apartment! We were welcomed with a bottle of wine and the kitchen was stocked with anything we could need. The patio was a perfect place for breakfast and was surprisingly private. The off street parking was wonderful, but we didn't move the car much. This apartment is very centrally located so we were able to walk quite a bit. The apartment was very clean and comfortable for 2 people. When I booked the property I loved that it was right on 6th street but not right on top of all the bars and night life. I like to be close enough to walk to it but return home and get a good night's sleep. There is a great restaurant next door, Z'Tejas and just beyond that was a bakery we bought breakfast a couple times and returned back to the patio to enjoy with tea and coffee. We were just 8 minutes drive from the bats, walked to restaurants/bars/shops, walked to the Whole Foods and were 15 minutes drive from The Broken Spoke (had to learn to 2 step in Texas). It was also convenient to hop on the highway to Hill Country. If we are in Austin again I would definitely book this property a second time."

  • Great location, helpful owner, comfortable and centrally located

    "Loved it! Just wrapped up a lovely 6 night stay at this apartment for ACL. Very convenient as it's 2 blocks from 6th street and close to the great nightlife Austin has to offer. The owner was super responsive and helpful. The beds are very comfortable and kitchen had everything we needed for simple meals when eating in. Was perfect for us - two adult couples - to share and would definitely stay here again."

Downtown Travel Tips

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.

6th Street in Downtown Austin is a One-Stop Shop

6th Street in Downtown Austin is a one-stop shop for dining, night life, theatre, live music, festivals, bars, pubs, clubs, art galleries and more. Downtown Austin lodging will not disappoint, providing you with modern accommodations, superb amenities and close proximity to everything Austin. Whether you enjoy your night at Emo's or Momos, 6th Street in downtown Austin will provide you and your friends a fun-filled night. Good eats are plentiful on 6th Street and very close to Downtown Austin vacation homes. Enjoy fresh southwestern cuisine at the Iron Cactus or WI-FI with your Mexican martini at Cedar Door. Have your drink delivered to your seat as you watch a movie at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema.

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.
