Property description

Simple, modern furnishings, original art, a comfortable bed, up-to-date bathroom and kitchen, plus a guide to all the best spots is everything you will need for a cozy and uniquely Austin stay. This in-town but out of the way property is canopied by enormous Live Oak trees and sports the perfect deck for hanging out and enjoying the weather and perhaps a beautiful sunset.

Located off of Barton Springs Road, up the road from Palmer Auditorium and Lady Bird Lake, and down the street from the peaceful Shambhala meditation center, the neighborhood itself is enough to win you over. It is a great place to take a stroll where you can enjoy the eclectic mix of ultra modern homes, tiny vintage bungalows, and our brand new library just around the corner. The neighborhood boasts some of the city's best new and established restaurants, cafes, food trailers, bakeries and shops.

We are a 15 minute walk from bustling South Congress Avenue and a 30 minute walk from the center of Downtown. You are minutes from museums, galleries, the hike and bike trail, great live music venues, plus the bat bridge, Barton Springs Pool, Zilker Park and the Greenbelt. Some of the nearby highlights include: Continental Club, Jo's Coffee, Saxon Pub, Guero's, Magnolia Cafe and the Broken Spoke Dancehall.

If you're coming to Austin on your own or as a couple, this place is perfect for you. Our vacation rental is stylish, clean, sunshine filled, super comfortable and convenient. A $7 cab or $1.00 bus ride gets you downtown quickly. You're also a $30 cab ride and 15 minutes from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport if you don't feel like renting a car.

We've created this spot to be your home away from home. This spacious 800sf. first floor abode, will provide you with everything you will need for a comfortable, memorable and uniquely Austin stay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We are two artists, a painter and photographer, who have been living in the Bouldin Creek neighborhood of South Austin for 20 years. Originally transplants from New York City, we came to Austin for the good weather, music and a simpler life.

Why the Owner Chose Bouldin, Austin, TX, USA:
This is our third home in the Bouldin Creek neighborhood. Having lived for 15 years in our previous house 3 blocks away, we would pass by this property and wonder about it. The house sits on a rather large piece of property. It is unusual for this neighborhood to have such a large yard. As well it is on a quiet street close to the Boudin creek greenbelt, so we see a lot more wildlife than even a block away. We love our neighborhood; the central location and the eclectic mix of people, homes and businesses.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is a large property on a quiet street, with large Live Oak trees with room and sun for a vegetable garden. The house supplies spacious, open interior spaces with plenty of porches to enjoy the outdoors. The location is perfect.
