  • Loved this house!!

    "Someday I'd like to live in a cottage like this one! It's is adorable, and very comfortable. I admit I'm a simple person who likes simple comforts, and this was a perfect place for me. Tracie has added some fun details, and seemed to think of everything my son and I could possibly need for a weekend in Austin. The keyless entry was great (one less key to lose!) The bed was super comfortable. The shower was very nice! The window a/c (especially the one in the bedroom) worked very well (and it got a work-out during a holiday weekend of high temperatures!) I cooked most of our meals, and really had everything I could need in the kitchen. An article left on the coffee table told me about a bookstore I really enjoyed. And Tracie gave me some great tips on navigating by bike in the city. I pitched horseshoes (discovered I'm not very good at it though!), road one of the bikes that came with the rental to the Congress Avenue Bridge to see the bats emerge (and rode home in the dark! Yikes! But a fun adventure!), enjoyed visiting with the chickens and the cats in the lovely backyard, and loved reading and relaxing on the front porch. I brought my son to Austin from Cleveland, OH to attend the Rooster Teeth Expo Gaming Convention. The convention was a bit of a disappointment for my son (TOO MANY people), but Tracie's cottage saved the trip. We really enjoyed it. Thanks!!"

  • Great location, modern remodel

    "Stayed 2 days/nights with 2 adults/2 teenagers. Very nice modern amenities and furnishings. Older apt building but unit was very clean. Great new appliances. Walking distance to lots of shops and restaurants. One block from Whole Foods, so easy to stock the fridge. Easy to day-trip to Schlitterbahn. Property management was very responsive to any inquiries."

    "Recently took my family on a lil getaway to end summer in Austin!! Stayed here and it was great!!! We loved the house and it was a country setting yet we were 5 mins away from everything!!

  • Perfect for a Bachelor Party

    "The house was exactly what I was looking for. It was an easy 10-15 minute walk from 6th street. Plenty of space with a HUGE living room area for all of us to hang out (10 guys). Everything was very clean and booking was easy. I highly recommend this place."

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.
