About the property

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.

No Pets

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.'

Amy

'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!

Thanks again,'

Roda

'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 Austin

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.

3 bedroom condo

  • 3 of 5

Great location. Walking distance to all that downtown Austin has to offer. Even in July. 3rd floor, no elevator. If, your a bit older, avoid the stairs. Unit was okay at best. Needs some serious updating. If, this is an investment property, the owners need to allocate some much needed funding into brining it up to date. 4th time renting VRBO, first time I had very little personal service. Luckily in the past I have dealt with owners that welcomed me as if I were family or best friends. Not the case here. With that said, this is an easy fix. Customer service. A/C a bit drained late in the day. Throw rugs are very dirty. Bedding was okay. Body wash, shampoo & conditioner as well as towel service very good. Kitchen was a plus for our needs. If my needs were 3 bedrooms and the management did indeed upgrade I would rent again.

Wonderful location, great property

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable and plenty of room. Very safe, locked gate, secure parking. Austin has a problem with beggars (I don't know if they are homeless or indigent but they definitely beg) The gated property really improves your feeling of comfort. Third floor improved quietness, increased effort with stairs and slightly increased temperature during the end of the day but air temp drops quickly with nightfall. Very good location. Walking to 6th st and to Rainey st. Bus travel to museums, capital and UT. We had a very good time.

Great location and well stocked apartment!

  • 4 of 5

Pros-

great location.

Full kitchen.

Apartment has towels, shampoo/conditioner, even had a few things in the fridge.

Schlage entry means we didn't have to worry about who had the key

They were happy to provide a pack n play and extra parking spot!

Cons-

- instructions on getting in to the building could be a little more user friendly

- one bedroom is right on 4th street with poor noise insulation

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed and close to everything. Nice area within walking distance of anything you would want to eat and/or drink and with lots of activities near by. Having an assigned parking spot was great as we rarely used the car and could leave it with no worries.

Awesome central location in chic apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better condo for our visit to Austin! The place was clean, offered all basic necessities, included easy check-in/check-out instructions, and provided fun touristing suggestions. The location was AMAZING!!! It was within a 5 minute walk to famous 6th street, a 10 minute walk from the historic Congress Ave bridge, and within a 10 min drive from the UT campus. The condo was spacious enough to fit our whole group comfortably for sleeping arrangements as well as chill hang out time in the open living room / kitchen layout. We especially appreciated the lock door combination instead of a key as it was easier for 6 people to get in and out on their own time. I would absolutely recommend this place to others and would stay here again myself! Thank you!

We loved our vacation. The condo location is perfect. But the condo needs some maintenance. The dishwasher and both TVs do not work.
