Located a few miles from South Congress, South Lamar, and downtown, this spacious South Austin home is designed for entertaining visitors of all ages as well as their beloved four-legged friends. The property is located near the South Austin intersection of William Cannon and Manchaca which is a short drive away from downtown along with many uniquely Austin restaurants, food trailers, shops, parks, and more. It allows visitors to experience Austin's creative and 'weird' landscape while maintaining a feeling of coziness that makes everyone feel welcome.
The one story home has 3 bedrooms including a comfy king bed in the master, a queen bed and twin day bed in the 2nd bedroom, and a queen bed in the 3rd bedroom. We also provide an automatic queen air mattress and extra linens. There are 2 full baths and double vanities in the master. The master suite is recently renovated providing a modern and tranquil escape that wouldn't be complete without a bubble bath in the new large soaking tub. The kitchen is fully furnished and great for amateur or wannabe chefs who want to save a few dollars and make meals at home. Most importantly the large back yard provides a private oasis perfect for a cup of joe on the patio, reading a book in the hammock, playing a game of horse shoes, or enjoying time with family and pets. Whether you're coming to Austin for a long weekend or for work, you'll find everything you need for the whole family to feel right at home!

About Chelsea Fribourg
We are a young and energetic couple with big dreams to make an impact in the world. We are originally from the Dallas area but moved back to our old college stomping grounds a few years after graduating from UT and TX State. We just had our first baby in January 2017, a beautiful girl named Etta. We take great pride in our first home and hope all who visit find it cozy, clean, and fun!!!
Chelsea Fribourg purchased this House in 2008
Why Chelsea Fribourg chose Southwest Austin
Austin is the kind of place that grabs your heart and soul and never lets go. It's where we first met in college and fell in love with all the outdoor activities, live music, good food, beautiful art, and friendly/talented/open-minded people. We knew this was the place we wanted to call home and hopefully raise a family one day. Now that dream is coming true!
What makes this House unique
Take one step out the back door and you'll quickly see why this property stole our hearts. As outdoor and pet lovers we saw an oasis in the back yard filled with lots of trees and space, including a hammock and horseshoe pit. Sit on the patio and enjoy a cup of joe while you watch the big Texas sky turn colors morning and night. Keep a watchful eye for doves, blue jays, cardinals, and playful squirrels in the morning and listen closely for owls that sometimes visit under the starry night sky. The back yard is our favorite 'room' in the house and provides a peaceful place for relaxing or fun including horse shoes, hula hoops, frisbees, croquet, and catch (all game equipment included in the garage). We also love the open layout of the living and kitchen areas that allow us to talk and laugh with friends without anyone feeling secluded or left out. All the natural light that comes in from the back yard windows leaves us with a feeling of warmth and happiness.

House was clean, comfy and decorated for Christmas. Perfect space and yard for our family.
Updated appliances, nice large bathrooms and everything we needed. Our son who lives in Austin had started a new job and had limited time off. House offered a perfect solution allowing our family a great place to be together. The owners could not have been nicer with helpful information and making sure we were comfortable. Highly recommend. We would rent it again.
This is a beautiful home with a huge back yard. This home was perfect for our family.
Everything about our stay at this home was perfect. The owners were very helpful when I had questions and quick to respond. The house and backyard are huge which made the stay even more comfortable.
Wonderful, comfortable, updated home in South Austin
Beautiful, updated interiors with a fantastic backyard. We enjoyed our stay and felt right at home. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!
We had a comfortable 4 week stay! Thanks!
great little house, great location
We (one adult with 3 teens) rented this home for three weeks, and it was perfect for our needs. Clean, well equipped, and nicely furnished. The street and neighbors were quiet. The yard is even nicer than the pictures. The owners were friendly and accommodating. My only critique is that the hall lights were all burned out. I would definitely rent this again.
Laura, we are sorry to hear the hall light burnt out during your extended stay. There is only one light so it's definitely dark without it. The light bulb has been replaced along with a couple others that we also noticed were burnt out after your stay. It seems like when one goes, a few more are always right behind. :) We strive to respond to any issues quickly and would have been happy to replace it during your stay if we had known sooner. Glad to hear you still enjoyed the home and had everything you needed for a comfortable long visit.
We stayed here as part of a family reunion over the holidays. It was such a comfortable, nice space to spend together. The kids loved the backyard, TV options, and games available. And the adults appreciated the well-stocked kitchen and comfortable beds! Chelsea made everything super easy and was very responsive throughout the whole process. We would definitely stay here again!
What's not to love about Austin?!?! The music is abundant, the food is delicious, the scenery is beautiful, the art is unique, and most of all the people are welcoming! Known as the live music capital of the world, you can find events like SXSW (March) and ACL (October) only 15 minutes away. Don't waste your time on chain stores or restaurants... there are many uniquely Austin shops, eats, and treats right at your fingertips.
