About Lindsay Redwine
My husband and I grew up in Austin. We absolutely love this city and enjoy sharing it with others, so please ask us for recommendations. We have a beautiful family, and are so happy to meet new people.
Lindsay Redwine purchased this House in 2012
Why Lindsay Redwine chose Greater South River City
We bought this home as an investment property. It was much bigger than we needed, but we just couldn't pass it up! It is just magical, beautiful and perfectly located. Everyone that sees it just falls in love. It is very unique to be able to offer such an amazing place to travelers. We have put a whole lot of time and love into it and are happy to share it with new friends.
What makes this House unique
The main house was built in the 1950's. It has been wonderfully maintained, and upgraded, yet so much character still remains. There is a perfect architectural balance of vintage and the functionality of a new home. For example, the kitchen is newly upgraded, with wonderful new appliances and cabinetry. However, the bathrooms retain an amazing vintage feel and decor, all of the wood floors are original to the house, as are the large doorbell chimes situated in the living room. The view is amazing, you can see St. Edward's University from the upstairs. Also the backyard is just incredible. It is amazing to have so much outside space, so close to downtown Austin. The yard is maintained and landscaped very well so that it may be enjoyed to its fullest.

Very nice home in a good location. We had eight (8) guests and had his own bed. Plenty of space both indoors and outdoors. Convenient to bars and restaurants. Well worth it.
Great location and enjoyed it
Great house for a group we enjoyed it
Great Location and Plenty of Room
Me and a group of 6 guys stayed here for 4 days in mid-May. When we first got there the house did smell musty and damp. I'm not sure if it had been rented the week before or not, so maybe it was closed up for awhile. When I went out to buy food and supplies, I bought 2 big candles to help with the musty smell. I then saw 3 or 4 other scented candles around so other renters must have had the same idea. Everything was there that was promised. Plenty of towels and all the amenities in the kitchen. We only had 6 guys but it could easily sleep 10+. It was 90+ degrees and the A/C worked like a charm. The location is perfect. Quiet neighborhood. $10-12 Uber or cab ride to 6th St. and downtown. Food, liquor and drug store were within 2 miles. Overall a great experience. If we head back to Austin, I'll be checking this houses availability first. Thanks!
Lovely home that more than met our needs while we were in town for a conference. We rented the house plus both apartments and had plenty of room! Lindsay was very responsive whenever we had a question or a need, and even made an epic dinner recommendation that we all enjoyed (shout out to Ranch 616 and their Texas Ribeye!).
comfortable large house in a good location
We rented the house for a week for our entire family in Austin for our daughters wedding. the house was perfect for all of the 3 adult couples and grandchildren of varying ages. it was comfortable, nicely decorated with plenty of space and well equipped for cooking, outdoor and indoor meals with a barbecue, a large kitchen and dining room. With small children the washer and dryer came in very helpful and the closeness to Big Stacey park with lovely playgrounds, community pool and walking paths made it easy to give the children space to run around despite the weather.
The weather was very hot and humid for most of our stay so we ended up using the air-conditioning most of the time. We don't like sleeping in air con but most of the ceiling fans could not be used without the lights so weren't much use at night and some of the windows weren't screened so we gave up and used the air-conditioning instead. The only other small things that would be nice were a kettle for tea and more mugs/cups-there were only about 6, a few more would save a lot of washing up. minor things that certainly didn't have any impact on our stay.
Lindsay was available by email and she and her partner were very helpful with any queries including dealing with stuff left behind!
Thanks for a great stay in Austin.
great place, good setup, sensitive neighbors
This house's setup and location is perfect. I stayed with a group of guys and all 8 of us had our own beds. The house was totally clean and in alright shape with the exception of a number of burned out lightbulbs. Really not the end of the world.
We weren't particularly noisy but the neighbor did pop his head over the fence to make sure we knew he went to bed by 10pm and there is actually a note stating that you can't use the back door at night because it squeaks too much and will wake up the neighbors.
The house is great, but if you plan on enjoying evenings outside and want to be able to relax you may not want the hassle of the old people next door.
The house is located within walking distance to Austin's famous South Congress Street. This area is fabulous for vintage and antique shopping. The absolute best restaurants in town. First Thursday shopper's paradise on the first Thursday of every month. Live music, community, food, drinks at the San Jose Hotel, Jo's Coffee Shop. One block away from Big Stacy Community Pool. Lots of sunshine and happiness, folks:) The property is also within 2 miles to the the heart of downtown Austin. Tons of nightlife and live music! The South Congress Bridge, home of the bats. Auditorium Shores. Zilker Park just a bit to the east.
