Downtown Austin 3BR/2bath Condo!
* Condo is licensed for short term rental required by the City of Austin.
What a great Texas city but downtown is the best part of the city and this 3 BR/2 BA condo is in the heart of downtown. Take a cab from the airport and don't even rent a car. You can walk to all the downtown arts, entertainment, restaurants, bars, live music venues and famous Lady Bird Lake (Town Lake) Hike & Bike Trail.
The world headquarters flagship store of Whole Foods is a long walk (10 min) or very short cab ride away. 'SoCo' = South Congress Avenue shopping and restaurants are a 15 min walk away by just crossing Town Lake from downtown. This is an amazing location and the living space is great too. Living room and kitchen have granite counter breakfast island open to the living area which features leather chair, sofa and pub table w/ 4 barstools.
Two bedrooms on the main level each feature a queen sized bed and 2 bathrooms. A small loft is up a spiral staircase and offers a small sitting area w/ 2 chairs overlooking the city lights/buildings and a 3rd bedroom in the loft which has 2 twin beds. Covered and gated parking comes with the unit.
**Please note this unit is on the 3rd floor and no elevator available so do not lease if you cannot bring bags up 3 floors or stairs are a problem.**
Please - No Smokers and WILD PARTIES - DO NOT BOOK IF YOU CANNOT ADHERE TO NO LOUD PARTIES/NOISE AFTER 10PM.
The neighbors are full time adult professionals/residents and the unit may not be leased for a party. It's a great home and home base for people wishing to visit Austin, live like a local and avoid being in the hotels. Walk across the street to one of the bars for time to be loud and crazy. Location is also across the street from Austin Convention Center so literally a 1-2 minute commute for those in Austin on business.
'I just wanted to say thanks once again for the opportunity to rent your unit in Downtown Austin. We had a great time, and the unit was super! I hope to have the chance to rent from you again when we return to Austin next time, and will definitely suggest others consider your unit when traveling to the area.'
'Just wanted to say thanks for arranging the rental. The unit was perfect for our family’s needs. While we were waiting for teammates to compete at the Convention Center, we could hang out at the condo and just cross the street when they were ready. Probably the best part of our stay was being able to go back and forth to the unit for lunch and snacks – we managed to avoid most of the unhealthy and expensive concessions-type food. Having a reserved parking spot in an enclosed area was also a plus. Would definitely stay there again if we come back to Austin for another tournament!
'As i mentioned to you today over the phone today after our check out, you should know just how pleased we were with the overall accommodations, location and cleanliness of your unit as a whole The place where one sleeps is important and this made our long business trip almost pleasurable Take Good care And Thanks again for letting us have the opportunity to stay in your nice unit' Phil W. 15 DEC 10 (this reference called after his stay to say he will talk on the phone or email to give a reference of the condo)

About Stacey Lee Auzenne
I am a downtown Austin resident.
Stacey Lee Auzenne purchased this Condo in 2000
Why Stacey Lee Auzenne chose Downtown
It's in the heart of downtown Austin walking distance to many great attractions including the Lady Bird Lake Hike and Bike Trail plus hundreds of restaurants, live music, arts and entertainment.
What makes this Condo unique
It's a property where you can walk out the door and be downtown plus across the street from the convention center. 99% of the neighborhoods in Austin are not pedestrian friendly like larger cities but Downtown Austin is a genuine walking area.

Condo itself was decent/clean, but had some hiccups during the stay
Clean upon arrival, needs some updates in the kitchen. The satellite tv didn't work, could only watch one channel. Someone was parked in our assigned parking space, we waited 24 hours and left a note on their windshield, but had to have them towed; then the next morning we found our car had been keyed (assuming it was the people who's car was towed because of us).
Overall, not a bad location, close to 6th street, walking distance to bars/restaurants. Watch the staircase, you might hit your head on it. Be careful when towing others vehicles, they might get mad and take it out on your car.
Everything was clean. They provided plenty of toilet paper, soap, towels etc. Toilet needed to be fixed while we were there and was done quickly. Bar stools were not all in working order and couch only fits 3 (different couch than pictured). Location was amazing. Easily w/in walking distance to everything. Only took Uber to hiking. Walked to variety of bars (6th and Raney St), many great restaurants, shopping and even walked to capital although that was a bit of a hike. Really enjoyed stay and would highly recommend!
We enjoyed being able to walk to everything. Thank you.
Weak wi-fi - real problem
The weak wi-fi, by itself, is enough to warrant this low ranking. I had to go across the street to the hotel lobby to get work done.
Otherwise the condo was average. It's aging and needs updates, but everything worked. Great location for trade show at the Austin Convention Center. Gated parking was nice.
We had a great time at this VRBO. Great location -- within walking distance to Rainey St and 6th. We even walked to South Congress.
The condo was in great condition - and had all the supplies we needed.
My only complaint is the property manager never responded to any of our questions - which is quite unprofessional.
Would stay here again!
My girlfriends and I (six total) stayed here during the second weekend of ACL 2017. We've always stayed closer to Zilker in the past, so thought we'd mix it up a bit this year. It was the way to go! So convenient and close to all we wanted to do/see! Rainey Street, 6th Street, Republic Square to catch the shuttle to Zilker...all within a short walk. The Capital Metro Shuttle to the airport...at only $1.25 each way...was catty corner from the condo. Ideal location for us, no doubt!
The condo was easy to access thanks to the detailed instructions sent to us. It was air conditioned and had all the amenities we could need. We laughed and joked about a few of the quirks there...one of the bar table chairs was broken and couldn't be raised up; we had to keep reminding each other to duck and to watch our heads/back if we bent over near the spiral staircase, which is at a really strange spot. The staircase is also quite small, causing one of the women to just leave her suitcase downstairs as it was too difficult to lug it up.
Other impressions: the tv is very large...too large for that space and kind of in your face. Would be so much nicer to have a smaller one tucked back in to the alcove; the hall bathroom needs some repair: toilet seat moved around, needs some touch up paint around the towel bar; the kitchen ceiling (beneath the air conditioning vent, I believe) had mold on it and bubbling from a leak. A suggestion from the two women who stayed upstairs is to place a mirror on that level. Would have saved them from having to come downstairs to the kitchen and bathroom mirrors to put on make up. Also, the closet in one of the bedrooms was basically unusable and served as storage, apparently. Would have been nice to place our suitcases in there during our stay. As it was, we left them open on the floor.
Are all these little things I've noted enough to keep us from staying here again in the future if the opportunity arose? Nope! Great location and the price was right. Had everything we needed, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
Property is located next to the Convention Center and adjacent to the Hilton. At the intersection of 4th and Trinity
