About Jeremy Blackman
I've lived in Austin for 14 years and love it to death. My wife and I met in grad school at UT and recently welcomed our beautiful baby girl, Jane. My wife and I (and now daughter) are avid travelers and hit the road whenever possible. Recent destinations include Iceland, New Zealand, South Africa, Australia, Brazil and Argentina. I look forward to sharing my place and my wonderful city.
Jeremy Blackman purchased this House in 2014
Why Jeremy Blackman chose Bouldin
If you are looking to "live like a local" there is no better area to experience this, in my opinion, than our property. Located in a very quiet neighborhood, but literally steps from the bustling restaurant/shopping districts of South 1st and South Congress (SOCO). In addition, downtown is only a 1.5 mile walk or a $6 UBER ride so you have easy access there as well. In other words, in the middle of everything that you could want to explore on your stay.
What makes this House unique
My wife, daughter and I live on the property and there is a breezeway that connects to the Casita/guesthouse from the back porch. We are there to serve as resource, but you will have total and complete privacy in a remarkable home. There are few 1 bedroom, 1.5 bath places in Austin which fit the following characteristics: large (1,100 sq ft.), multi-storied, modern, and luxurious. There are hardwood floors throughout, a second story loft style bedroom with a large bathroom and rain shower, a full kitchen, and washer/dryer. All the comforts of home away from home. In addition, there is a high end sofa bed for guests wanting an extra bed (guesthouse comfortably fits 4). Please read our reviews... the guest love our place and many return!

Perfect on all levels
We could not have been happier staying at the Casita. The great communication, perfect location, comfy and cozy house, bed, towels and even toiletries hair dryers and a curling iron every detail was perfect. We felt staying there was such a relaxing addition to our trip.
We loved our stay. Very convenient location, walkable to South Congress, downtown.
The casita was very clean and had everything we needed for our stay. The hosts were lovely and accommodating.
Central location to downtown and SOCO
The young couple who own the casita behind their home were welcoming and friendly. From the bottle of wine and personal welcome, they were available for recommendations and suggestions. They seemed really interested in making our trip to Austin a memorable experience. The spacious two story rental was immaculate and the attention to detail, from the linens to the pantry supplies, was exceptional. The casita was within walking distance to downtown, 1st Street shopping and restaurants, and South Congress nightlife. We would not hesitate to come back and stay here again.
We LOVED our stay!
This place was the cutest VRBO! Jeremy and his wife were amazing, so accommodating and helpful. From our cute welcome note at arrival to the comfiest bed and softest towels - A+!
Thanks for the kind words! We loved hosting you ladies
Top notch casita
Beautiful, comfortable home in a great neighborhood. Jeremy and Jennifer were very friendly, responsive, and accommodating owners. Highly recommend.
Great South Austin location.
Had a great six day stay in this beautiful guesthouse. The location couldn't be better with lots of great restaurants and activities withing walking distance. Check-in and check-out were easily and efficiently handled. The spacious and modern accommodations were clean, comfortable and well equipped. The Wi-Fi worked flawlessly during our stay. The location is an easy 30 minute drive to the airport. Jennifer and Jeremy were great hosts and we would stay here again in a minute.
