Relaxed Austin at its best! This cool, modern South Austin home is located in historic Fairview Park at the edge of Travis Heights. Originally built in 1949, the house has been updated with a beautiful new addition and separate guest house. Owned by long-time Austinites, this family house was designed for entertaining and can accommodate up to 12 visitors. The main house has 3 bedrooms and an additional room with a fold-out Queen sofa bed.

Enjoy hanging out and relaxing after a day at the F1 track or SXSW in the large open living room with HD TV, Wii gaming station, small DVD library, and premium cable. We’ve stocked the kitchen with some of our local favorites for you to enjoy – Deep Eddy Ruby Red Vodka, Topo Chico, El Milagro Tortilla Chips, Rose’s Salsa, and Red’s Porch Gift Cards (best burgers and sangria in town!). The open gourmet kitchen overlooks the living room and boasts a tiered Silestone island and iPod stereo system. While the large custom dining room table seats 8, there is an additional seating area in the screened in porch that easily accommodates 6. The adjoining billiard room (pool table is on its way!) opens onto the living room and includes a kid’s loft stocked with games and toys.

This home is furnished with comfortable, modern furniture, gorgeous family antiques, and beautiful hardwood floors. All beds are made up with luxurious hotel linens and fresh pillows. The recently remodeled bathrooms are supplied with fluffy towels along with amenities for your use including shampoo/conditioner, body wash, sunscreen and hair dryers. The cozy guest house sleeps 4 on a King bed and Queen futon. The full kitchen includes a rustic dining table but the iron table on the front porch is perfect for enjoying your morning coffee! The full bathroom includes the amenities as the ones in the main house and a full tub and shower. High-speed wireless internet is provided for the main and guest house occupants.

The tree covered back yard is the ideal spot to enjoy your evening cocktail. This house offers everything imaginable for an ideal Austin evening: fire pit, trampoline, Adirondack chairs, grill, swing set, iron table and chairs, and grass lawn. While there is plenty of street parking, the driveway can accommodate 2 cars. You won’t need a car, though, to walk to S. Congress for fabulous local boutique shopping, great restaurants, and live music. The caretaker of this home is available 8:00a – 6:00p to answer any questions and does respond to text and email inquiries. Additionally, during your stay, the caretaker is on-call for 24 hour emergencies.
Reservation Dates: Please not that this house is primarily for rent during SXSW and F1. We are open to the possibility for rental at other non-holiday times at a rate of $2K per night. Feel free to email us with your dates.
