Newly remodeled and ready for your stay, this 1BR, 1BA (sleeps 2) Austin casita is surrounded by lush landscaping on the Old Bouldin Family Farm (they settled here in 1850!). Don’t miss our resident donkeys, who love attention from guests. If you have a large group, don’t miss the sister property next door (search #589923 on VRBO and HomeAway).
Note: Property has window AC and heat units.
INSIDE THE HOUSE
You know you’ve arrived at the property when you see the flagpole with beautiful stone wall behind.
A stone path leads to the casita, where you’ll push open the iron gate and walk to the dark green front door. You’ll enter the property into the main living area with traditional Spanish tile floors.
Put your feet up and enjoy a quiet night in, lounging in the living room on the two arm chairs and plush love seat. Spanish décor surrounds you, creating a warm ambiance.
When it’s time for dinner, head into the adjacent kitchen, where you can cook up a storm. It comes with fridge, double sink, toaster, oven/stove and microwave. Brew up a cup of coffee on the Keurig and sit down at the kitchen bar with two bar-stools, perusing the newspaper.
In the bedroom, the wrought-iron queen bed invites you to sleep like a baby. You’ll also find a 42” flat-screen TV, small chair, closet and dresser. The bathroom has a sink, toilet and stand-up shower behind the bright shower curtain.
Double patio doors lead out to a peaceful wooden deck with 4-person bistro set overlooking the green bamboo landscaping. As you’re enjoying the garden, follow the short path to our pet donkeys, Bang and Ruth. They love to nibble on the grass and leaves and enjoy attention and a rub on the head.
NOTE: Part of the charm of the property is its downtown location. That charming location comes with train noise, as trains run past the property at different times during the day and night. We don't mind the train but not everyone will find it as charming as we do.
If you don’t feel like brewing your own coffee, walk to Opa Coffee and Wine Bar (5 minutes on foot) in the morning and come back at night for a glass of vino. Don’t feel like cooking either? Try breakfast at Snooze (3 minutes on foot), tapas at Barlata (4 minutes on foot) and Mexican at Sazon (5 minutes on foot).
Head over to Lamar Boulevard and peruse the unique clothing boutiques, eclectic art galleries and other fun stores. Ricky Guerrero Park (8 minutes on foot) is a fun spot for all ages with picnic spots, creek to explore and playground and splash pad for the little ones.
The Barton Springs Pool ( 5 minute drive) is a beautiful spot to spend the afternoon, swimming in the natural spring-fed pool and lounging under the stately oak and pecan trees. It’s part of the Zilker Metropolitan Park, which also houses the Zilker Botanical Gardens.
Travel across the Colorado River into downtown Austin (5 minutes drive ) and check out the historic state capitol, LBJ Presidential Library and Bullock Texas State History Museum.
