Recent Austin reviews

  • 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."

  • The Perfect House For Our ACL Weekend Getaway!

    "Beautiful home and great location! We had a group of 8 which the house slept very comfortably. There were so many places to eat and shops within a mile of the house. Very convenient! My friends and I plan on coming back for ACL next year and hopefully we'll be lucky enough to rent this house again. Thanks Cindy! Sincerely, Tim"

  • Great little get away

    "First off I procrastinated and didn't book the place until 2 days before my scheduled time, but they took care of me right away and had me booked fast. The place was nice and quiet perfect for a little get away. There really was peacocks and peahens walking around the neighborhood which was nice. The place was nice and clean. It had plenty of dished to cook for yourself (which we did) and plenty of supplies to last the weekend.(Soap/shampoo/conditioner/dishes/paper towels/toiletpaper) overall I loved it and will recommend this spot to anyone looking to get away. This spot is perfect for a couple but no room for not for anymore that 2 people."

  • Can't Say Enough About this House

    "Not only is this a fantastic example of Craftsman architecture, it is also a great place to stay. Its perfect for a few couples, a couple of families or even a group of guys (like us). 3 bedrooms & 3 baths means everyones happy and a full, functional kitchen helps a bunch too. There are several restaurants and cafes within a few blocks and downtown is a short bus ride away with two lines stopping within two blocks on either side of the house (#7 and #10 routes). UT is in easy walking distance. The neighborhood is super quiet (theres a seminary next door!) and theres a nice park down at the end of the street. Price is great year-round though F1 week gets kinda pricey (still worth it though:-). Owners are great and responsive, we've stayed twice now and never had a problem. A wonderful and comfortable place that I hope to stay in again, thanks Ann and Jay :-)"

Swede Hill Travel Tips

Choose Swede Hill Vacation Homes for a Historic Holiday

Swede Hill is located in Downtown Austin, Texas. The neighborhood was first inhabited by Swedish immigrants who came to the area in large numbers in the 1870s. During this time, 67 Swedish families made their homes in the area first known as Svenska Kullen, or Swedish Hill. They built the first Swedish Methodist Church in Texas. Soon after, Swedish Methodists founded Texas Wesleyan College, located in the vicinity of Swede Hill. Urban development, including the construction of highways, shrunk the community, although Swede Hill vacation homes can be found in the area. The part of Swede Hill that remained was designated a historic district by the National Register of Historic Places. You can find Swede Hill lodging and Swede Hill vacation homes that will allow you to experience the area's history.

Eclectic Mix of People and Places

Today, Swede Hill is a vibrant community with unique architecture representative of the area's history. It also boasts newer contemporary architecture, Swede Hill vacation homes and an eclectic mix of residents. Young families, professionals, students and artists are all attracted to the area because of its neighborhood feel, local universities and urban offerings. Tourists are attracted to Swede Hill lodging because the neighborhood is centrally located near the state Capitol, Royal Stadium and the University of Texas.

Enjoy Swede Hill Amenities

Visitors to the area are just a short walk away from Downtown Austin and can enjoy art studio tours, city celebrations, historic landmarks and libraries. There is also a wonderful mix of restaurants offering many different culinary styles. Visitors can also enjoy Swede Hill Park, known for its magnificent centuries-old oak trees. Aside from the sprawling scenery, the park offers basketball and volleyball courts, horseshoe pits, soccer and baseball fields and party facilities. Austin vacation rentals give you many lodging options when traveling to the area.
