  • Perfect Friends Weekend Getaway Property

    "Located in the perfect place to enjoy all that Austin has to offer (from Barton Creek greenbelt hike and bike trail, Barton Springs, downtown nightlife, and great BBQ and Tex-Mex) this clean and newly-renovated property had everything for eight friends looking for a relaxing weekend getaway. Suzanne was very pleasant to work with and made the stay extremely easy - she answered all of our questions quickly and gave great recommendations. The house itself had a great open layout on the main floor and plenty of space for eight+ to sleep comfortably. We spent most of our time watching the opening round of the World Cup on the two big flat screens in between hanging out in the incredible back yard with an amazing pool and spacious deck and patio. Early morning runs on the nearby creekside trail were the perfect way to start each day. I would highly recommend this property to any friend, relative, or first-time Austin visitor."

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.
