Newly remodeled South Austin home, located in a well established neighborhood in a great location. The house is fully equipped, has refurbished wooden floors throughout with antique furnishings. A fully fitted kitchen and interior dining area look out over the tiered deck. Enjoy your meals inside or out. Views of downtown Austin from the back deck. Comfortable living area with sofa and chairs to watch the 42 inch flat screen TV or surf the internet with free WiFi. There are two bedrooms, one with a queen size bed, one with a double size bed, each has lamps and furniture. There is a queen size air mattress if needed for additional guests. A refurbished bathroom with a shower and tub will soothe your tired spirits. Parking for 2 cars in the driveway; bus stop is 1 block away.

Local mosaic artist, Stefanie Distefano, has bridge art displayed 1/4 mile from the house. Be sure to look 'under' the bridge to fully embrace her work.
Great local coffee shops and places to eat dotted all around. Food Trailers everywhere... try a different one each day.

About the owner: Austin born sisters, Dorene and Denise have lived in Austin their entire lives. Our family and friends live here and we can not imagine living anywhere else! Austin is one of the hottest spots to visit in the nation. The combination of nature, live bands, and great food (Tex-Mex, barbeque, eclectic)...we just love Austin! We have owned and managed properties for 12 years and enjoy giving people a comfortable beautiful place to live and stay.
Why the Owner Chose South Austin, Austin, TX, USA:
This property was handed down to us from our father. He had the foresight to buy the property in the 1960's and it is very special to us. Our entire family grew up and attended school in this area and many friends remain. We have loved seeing how this area has changed and grown over the years and we can quickly tell you where something 'used to be'. We have remodeled the entire house and turned it into a South Austin gem. It is in the perfect location since it is conveniently located to downtown, restaurants, entertainment, nature walks, and shopping. Yet, you can still relax and get away from it all by sitting on the back deck with your favorite beverage.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The feeling in the house is one of being in a safe place and calmness. From the kitchen, bathroom and back deck you catch glimpses of the high rises of downtown. There is native landscaping and a large fenced in backyard with a three tiered awesome deck. Located in a good location with speedy access to other areas in Austin via highways or major roads.
