Car: Recommended

Brand new to the Austin rental market in November 2013 and located in very hip East Austin and two blocks from several restaurants and bars in the historic E. 11th Street District including Franklin Barbeque (as seen on TV with Anthony Bourdain and the winners of many Best TX BBQ polls). This updated 1920's bungalow is within a mile of UT, SXSW music venues, the Texas State Capital and downtown. It is also 0.7 miles from the E. 6th Street area that can't be beat for live music, cocktails, and some of Austin's most innovative food- think one of Austin's newest restaurants 'Qui' by Top Chef winner Paul Qui or if you ask me, the far better trailer food by Qui at his East Side King trailers (Check them out in dive bars 'The Liberty', 'Shangri-La', and 'The Grackle' - all on E. 6th Street.

This historic neighborhood has lots of Austin character and the location can't be beat. Come stay in our modernized historic bungalow and see what all the Austin buzz is about! This home has all new furnishings including sheets, towels, etc. We also have high speed internet, cable TV, bluetooth music player, and a security system. The kitchen is fully equipped for 6 people and the backyard is a great space to hang out and grill on the charcoal grill. It's a very comfortable home with all the modern amenities you could ask for.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: My husband and I love to travel and are constantly using sites like HomeAway to find perfect places to stay in the cities we travel to. We have stayed in so many great places that allowed us to get to know a city in a way you can't in a hotel. We are so excited to be able to return the favor for visitors to Austin!

Why the Owner Chose Central East Austin, Austin, TX, USA:
We bought this property in September of 2013 from one of our good friends, Natalie -thus, the name Natalie's house. We had always admired the historic character of the house and you really cannot beat this location. Natalie loved the house and was sad to when she outgrew it. We love it every bit as much as she did and hope that you will love Natalie's house as much as we do!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Historic home with amazing front porch, can't beat location in downtown Austin, two blocks from world renowned Franklin Barbeque and several other great Austin restaurants and bars, views of the Texas State Capitol from the comfort of the backyard!
