2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 4

This 102 year old Victorian style 2BR/2BA home has been fully restored with top of the line environmentally conscious materials. The home is perfectly located two miles from the locations of both SXSW and ACL.

The master bedroom, located in the front of the house, with a private entrance off the front porch, features nine foot ceilings and three large bay windows looking out over the front lawn and side garden. It also has a small sitting area in front of the windows. The master bath has a large walk-in shower, big enough to share, a heated tile floor, and a large vintage mirror. A stained glass window lets in light, but maintains privacy. The guest bedroom has a ceiling that slopes toward the back of the house and features a 1920's metal frame double bed. This cozy, private room with a walk-in closet opens to the living room on one side and a lovely period bathroom on the other. There's a full-length antique mirror and a little sitting area with an antique platform rocker. The bath has a refinished vintage clawfoot tub with a shower attachment and a beautiful vanity made from an antique tile and marble washstand. This bath also has a stained glass window and heated tile floor. Each bedroom features a ceiling fan, a 26” flat panel TV with cable and a DVD player, and a clock radio with an iPod dock. In the fully-furnished kitchen, the sink and built-in ironing board closet came out of the owner's grandmother's house and were refurbished for your use. Due to the unusual nature of the antique stove and for your safety, we have provided a counter-top convection oven and a microwave oven to use in place of the antique oven. The cook top, though, has been retrofitted with four electric burners. In addition, you'll find many modern energy-efficient appliances: dishwasher, garbage disposal, ice maker, toaster, coffee pot with timer, hot water pot, and a blender with a frozen Margarita recipe handy.

The gardens surrounding the Heritage House and the other two buildings on the property, planted in native flowers and shrubs, are open for your use. Ancient Pecan, Live Oak, and Red Bud trees provide ample shade. Exclusive to the vacation rental is an antique brick patio (with an interesting history) with a 3-tiered fountain and native plants, under a hundreds-of-years-old live oak. A crushed granite walkway circles the grounds where you will find shaded seating and tables and another large lighted, arbor-covered patio sitting area for your use. In the rear, a rock patio has seats and tables made from huge salvaged architectural stone pieces found on the lot. It sits next to the oriental garden featuring a dock and bridge, fountain, waterfall, and Koi pond. Behind the oriental garden is our on-site caretaker's residence.

                                                  House is charming and location is excellent! I would highly recommend the property and the amenities. The property was clean and spacious. What I was not pleased with was TurnKey Management. When we walked in, there was a Samsung tablet plugged into the kitchen. That night at 10:30 we had our 5 daughters over to visit (we were 5 ladies over 40) and we were playing a game and laughing/clapping. At 10:45 I received a call from management saying they received a call from the neighbors regarding noise. I immediately apologized and went outside to tell the neighbors. No neighbors were home and they never placed a complaint. Come to find out the Samsung tablet was watching/listening to us. We were extremely upset by this and were told by Austin friends this is what the management company does.

                                                  Beautiful well appointed cottage in great location

                                                  Michael B.Corpus Christi, TX

                                                  The house is an older well maintained cottage just off of South First in Austin. It felt quite and secluded but was only a 5 minute walk from the popular South Congress (SOCO) area of Austin. Several coffee shops, food trucks and restaurants are in the immediate vicinity as well as a small convenience store with an astonishing selection of beer and wine. Sipping coffee on the front porch in the cool morning watching the world wake up is an unbeatable way to start the day. I will definitely check availability of this property first when I return to Austin.

                                                  Great location, and place for family

                                                  Justine H.

                                                  This was our first trip with our 6 month old, and this house was perfect in terms of layout and amenities. Location was on the same block as a coffee shop, and several within walking distance. We will rent this home again!

                                                  This home is lovely! Clean and roomy with thoughtful extra touches (like a coffee/tea bar) that make you feel welcomed. The location is just a quick walk to South Congress but it is on a quiet street. We really enjoyed staying here for our Austin Thanksgiving.

                                                  This is a charming 2 bedroom/2 bath home. The inside is decked out with antiques and period pieces. It was exactly what we needed for our F1 weekend. Close to 1st street and Congress. Lots of food nearby. They were very responsive to our needs.

                                                  Best location in Austin

                                                  Love Antigua!Colorado

                                                  We loved our stay on Monroe, the location could not be better! We walked to many places on South Congress, the food trucks and coffee shop are at your doorstep! Recommend Thai Fresh, and Radio coffee shop for live music. We are vegan, Casa de Luz is amazing!

                                                  The home is wonderfully appointed, especially for a family. Kitchen is adequate and the instructions are very helpful! We cooked a great deal; we found the gorgeous antique stove is darling but can be a challenge to know when the burners are on high? Eating in the darling antique dining room was very enjoyable!

                                                  I would give it a 5 star for a family. For two couples over 66; the second bedroom is just ok...the claw foot tub though very quaint was not ideal for my 72 year old husband. A newer queen bed in the second bedroom would be a great upgrade. Also, I would use all white towels and get thicker ones (Costco has some amazing ones.) Also, two more chairs to sit in on the front porch would be grand (we grabbed the ones on the back porch for our glass of wine). These are things I would want to know if I were the owner of this marvelous home!

                                                  All in All we loved traveling around Austin, Fredricksburg, Georgetown and then coming home to our perfectly located quaint home on Monroe.
