Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

This 2BR duplex features an updated kitchen and a private fenced backyard. If you want to check out the state capital or the nightlife scene, you’re just a quick Uber or Lyft from downtown Austin (3 miles).

Tile floors, contemporary furnishings, and an open floor plan make this a comfortable home base for a family or group of friends looking to explore Austin.

Located in the Barton Hills/Zilker neighborhoods, you’re a quick walk or drive away from an array of local dining options. You’re also close to Zilker Park, home of Austin City Limits Music Festival, and the Barton Springs Pool.

ABOUT THE DUPLEX

After a day of exploring Austin, head home to relax in the living room with a movie on the 51” flat screen TV with Blu-ray player. Seating includes a sofa and chair. Or challenge everyone to a tournament on the XBOX 360.

The kitchen is open to the living room and features new stainless appliances and granite counters. In the mornings, choose from a Keurig machine or cappuccino maker for your morning brew. In the evenings, pour a glass of wine and play your favorite tunes on the Bluetooth speaker while you make a hearty Texas dinner. Dine at the counter with seating for three.

After dinner, step out into the private fenced backyard for a bit of fresh air.

When you are ready to retire for the night, both bedrooms offer queen beds and contemporary furnishings. The bathroom has a tub/shower combination with a detachable showerhead.

You’ll have one carport parking spot, with an additional spot in the driveway. Amenities include a full washer/dryer set.

THE LOCATION

This home is conveniently located just 3 miles from downtown Austin. Be sure to visit the Texas State Capital building while you’re there. Literature buffs won’t want to miss the O. Henry Museum. And music lovers will want to explore nearby Zilker Park (1.5 miles), home of the Austin City Limits Music Festival.

Kids will enjoy the Zilker Zephyr Miniature Train. On a warm summer day, bring your suit because the park also boasts a three-acre spring-fed pool.

Be sure to visit the many parks along the Colorado River—rent a bike and ride along the Lady Bird Lake Hike and Bike Trail.

When you’re hungry, you can walk to the restaurants on S. Lamar Street. Check out Torchy’s Tacos, Wholly Cow Burgers, Phil’s Ice House, East Side King, and more. All are less than a mile away.

In the mood to explore farther afield? For a day trip by car, check out Lake Travis (30 minutes), Horseshoe Bay (1 hour), or San Antonio (just over an hour).

Cute place in Austin!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect spot in Austin.

Pros:

Very clean

Close to downtown and popular spots

Quiet, safe, cute neighborhood

Comfortable beds, great shower

Cons:

Both fans need balancing. They wobble and make a constant clicking/sound. Doesn’t sound like a big deal but makes it *very* difficult to fall asleep. This was our biggest issue. More of a nuisance sound or go without air movement.

Needs more full sized towels.

Needs a regular coffee maker. Not everyone can make/wants/knows how to make espresso and Keurigs are gross/expensive. Missing a couple small kitchen items since we were cooking there 1-2 times a day (scissors, basic spices, cheese grater, plastic baggies) not a big deal, we made do but if I was thinking of *everything*.

On the whole, this was the perfect spot for us! $5-6 uber to downtown. Close to so many great Austin things. Very clean, new, comfortable. I loved that everything was new and modern. We enjoyed our girls weekend very much and would rent this place again! Highly suggest!

Reviewer Comments:

I had to stay for 2 weeks in Austin, and I was looking for a place near South Lamar, and close to Downtown. This property was exactly what I was looking for. It was clean, it was comfortable, it was really well located, I felt quite safe in the area... Besides, the instructions to properly stay there were clear and concise. Both my colleague and I were really happy about the accommodation, and I would repeat here if I have to go back to Austin

Reviewer Comments:

Not up to standards. Ground level bathroom window wide open upon arrival. Not stocked with napkins or paper towels. Both bedroom ceiling fans were loud and effected the ability to sleep peacefully. Slight smell, I decided to purchase air freshener before my guest arrived.

Reviewer Comments:

This duplex apt was very comfortable. Comfortable beds and quiet location/street. Very clean inside. Walking distance to South Lamar and many restaurants & bars. Easy to get anywhere in Austin since Lamar is a major street. The living area is a bit dark since there is only the ceiling light and a corner lamp - would be nice to have another lamp (or two) in that room to brighten it up (I'm sure on typical Austin sunny days the light during the day is fine - it was raining and cloudy the days we were in Austin. I also think that the hot water heater might need to be replaced since the hot water was only warm (with only the hot water knob turned) and it turned completely cold after one person showered. Maybe it's just adjusting the setting (could be turned low when people are not staying in the apt) but if that's the case housekeeping should turn it up before a guest arrives.

This was my husband and I first experience using vrbo and we loved it!The location was great close to everything we had planes to do.The experience was like being at home with all the amenities there to use.The house was clean and we didn't have anyone come to the unit to bother us. I really loved the fact they supplied the laundry detergent... meaning when I got home all I had to do was washingfor me when we got home.
