The Neighborhood

East Austin is currently one of the most popular and fastest-growing neighborhoods in the city. Its eclectic scene is a motely of culture, hipsters, murals, and trendsetters. Whether you came for the music, the food, or any of the quirks that make this rocking city so unique, you’ll find that here in East Austin, you’re in the heart of it all.

Major attractions like the LBJ Presidential library, the State Capitol, and Bullock State History Museum are only a 5-minute Uber ride away. The Congress Avenue Bridge, Lady Bird Lake, and the University of Texas are all reachable by car within 10 short minutes. Zilker Park, with its multitude of fun attractions like the Botanical Gardens, Barton Springs, and the Nature & Science Center is only 15 minutes away by car.

Austin knows food. Here in East Austin, you’ll be within walking distance of some of the greatest and most interesting gastronomic experiences of your life. If it’s the renowned barbeque you’re craving, a 5-minute walk puts you at the legendary Micklethwait Craft Meats (a Michelle Obama-approved location). An additional two minutes lands you at the world-famous Franklin Barbecue, the place Anthony Bourdain declared was the finest brisket he’d ever had. If you’re in the mood for tacos, another Texan tantalizer, walk 15-minutes to Savor de Moi and be prepared to be transported to taco heaven. Texans take their tacos seriously, and any Austin local will tell you that this taco truck isn’t messing around. Other impeccable eats you can reach by foot in a few minutes include Tony’s Jamaican Food, Blue Dahlia Bistro, Hillside Farmacy, and Paperboy–an Austin breakfast must. If you’d rather pick up some groceries, Quickie Pickie has you covered. You may even stay for a craft beer or two at their bar.

Live music is synonymous with Austin. Don’t miss the legendary Stubbs, where music giants like Muddy Waters and Johnny Cash often played for their supper, located only 5 minutes away by car. Other heavyweight music venues like The White Horse or Antone's are also accessible in less than 10 minutes. Many SXSW events are held nearby and Austin City Limits (at Zilker Park) is only a 12-minute drive away. For those of you less interested in music and more interested in booze, you’re within a 10-minute drive of all the hottest Congress Avenue bars and 5 minutes from the Red River District!

If you’re less interested in drinking and more interested in keeping your body intact after downing a pound of barbeque, try perfecting your pigeon pose at Eastside Yoga or jogging it off at Lott park. Note that Eastside Yoga has a donation-based class on Sundays!

In the event that your wallet will be the one getting the workout, try shopping at one of the neighborhood’s trendy vintage secondhand shops like Olive or Charm School Vintage–both reachable on foot in just a few minutes!

Getting Around

As mentioned, you can easily walk to downtown in about 5 minutes. If it’s public transportation you prefer, there are several bus stops surrounding the house on 12th, Rosewood, and 11th. The closest stop is only a block away. Both Uber and Lyft services are plentiful in Austin and you shouldn’t have to wait more than a few minutes for a ride. The Austin–Bergstrom International Airport is also only a 15-minute drive away!

Great home with tons of space

  • 5 of 5

This house appears very small from the outside, but once you're inside there is a ton of space. This house was prefect for my weekend getaway with a group of girlfriends. There is a ton of space in the main bathroom (plenty of room for all the girls to get ready at the same time!), and having a bed for each of us was really nice. I would definitely book this house again.

Great space in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

My group and I truly enjoyed staying at this house and were surprised by all the space the house had to offer. With four bedrooms and 2.5 baths, we never felt cramped or crowded. We were also so close to everything! This house is a five minute walk to the best barbecue ever and super cute breakfast spots, also a 20 minute walk to downtown or a 5-10 minute Lyft/Uber to pretty much anywhere you want to go in Austin. I really appreciated how responsive Annie and Chase were during the whole process and highly recommend staying at this spot.

Neat Place

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a UT game and rented two places from the same hosts so I had the pleasure of experiencing both of their homes. This home is much more upscale and modern than any home I have rented in Austin. The bathrooms looked like they were out of Architectural Digest my wife loved it. Happy that we had parking and the walk to downtown was quick and easy. The neighborhood seemed safe and we were able to sleep 30 people between the two houses. Lots of beds here. Clean.
