Property description

We start your Austin story off with a large and lovely front porch, its two rocking chairs and glass patio dining set nestled under the added shade of a towering pecan tree that shades nearly the entirety of the lush green lawn. It's a perfect place to lie low, unwind, get some work done or greet your neighbors as they jog or walk past. And so you nestle down a while, taking in a deep breath of the fresh Austin air, before noticing your bags still sitting outside the front door. We realize now, it's time to go inside.

Once inside, a sitting room catches our attention immediately - almost an extension of our new friend, Front Porch. Sunlight seeps through the blinds from both the south and west windows, spilling onto a bookshelf that covers the north wall. On this shelf we find good reads and lovely games for me time and/or for the whole family to enjoy. But, before we repeat the mistake of getting too comfortable by testing out one of the antique sitting chairs, we mosey over across the hall, into a small branch of a hallway, where bedrooms 1 and 2 await.

Bedrooms 1 and 2 are both quaint and unique. We'll call them the 'Blue Room' and the 'Red Room'. Each comes equipped with at least one night stand, a bedside lamp and alarm clock. Each has a large dresser and closet. But Blue has two comfy twin beds freshly dressed in lush blue bedding, while Red has an inviting queen wrapped in a luxurious crimson and comfy pillows. Red also has an mp3 player. We like these rooms, but aren't ready to have you claim one just yet. There's a third...somewhere.

Your guest bath greets us just before we leave the hallway. It's a lovely shower/bath combo. As is standard with a VacationCake home, we know that we'll find a hair dryer, three sizes of towels, make-up wipes, soaps and essentials. A quick thumbs-up, and we're off to the next.

We enter the dining area, past large large oak dining table that can accommodate a feast for 6, and into the kitchen. Here, we find nearly everything you'll need. It's a fully stocked kitchen, for cooking, serving, eating and drinking. You find everything from a blender to locally roasted whole bean coffee, and even filtered water. Satisfied, we look over the bar top, where the kitchen opens up into the living room.

A large couch with comfortable seating for at least 6, opens into this entire home from your living room. It faces a large 52' flat screen HD TV. The living space continues on with cable, a dvd player, and a few movies to choose from. And, it ends with true high speed, fiber optic-powered internet (120 mbps download speed, what!?). Again, we're tempted to stay and see what's showing. But, there's still more home to be discovered.

Opening the door to your private backyard, you see a lush green lawn and plants to accompany you in your little oasis. With it's enclosed yard, this home is also the perfect place for your dog to run around and explore.

Finally, we find your master bedroom. It's everything we hoped it would be - large, colorful and designed for comfort. Like the other two bedrooms, we find a large dresser (though a little larger), nightstands, lamps, an alarm clock, mp3 player and even tissue. But, what makes this room a treasure could be its king bed, its 42' television, or its many windows that naturally light the softly-colored room.

But, wait. The true gem of this room awaits in a final chamber to our right, your master bathroom. On top of being fully stocked, like the other (and all VacationCake homes), we find a large king size bath and separate shower. There's also a separate room for the toilet - great idea. There are two sinks and a large mirror. And, deeper still, we enter the walk-in closet to find your washer and dryer.

At last, you put your things down, and claim the master bedroom. The others might be a wee jealous. But, this find was yours. We approve.

Car: Recommended

If your wish is to be in a lovely quaint neighborhood that feels like home, and not in the typical parking lot setting on the 13th floor of some hotel where everything basically looks straight out of a Calvino short story, while at the same time not being cut off from the city you've come to explore, look no further.

Oakmont Place is in a choice neighborhood - smack dab in the middle of town, close enough to local attractions to be convenient. Your surrounding area is the perfect place to enjoy local food and drink as well as shop. There are three parks (and a pool) within walking distance. There's even a music shop, a salon, a pub and a car repair shop all within two miles. Oakmont is great for being in the city without feeling overwhelmed by buildings. Yet, it's no problem to get around. You can get to UT Campus in under 5 minutes or downtown in 7. Also, being one block from MoPac Blvd, you can even get to Zilker Park and Barton Springs in just 5 minutes!

We're proud of our public transportation here in Austin. The public bus system can actually get you most places in town in a relatively short amount of time. Those who choose not to drive will still have an easy time getting from place to place. Biking is also hugely popular in Austin, and you can be sure there will be biker accommodations on most roads.

From your house, you are:

3.5 miles from Downtown Austin

4.2 miles from Zilker Park and Barton Springs, rightfully Austin's most famous swimming hole.

and less than 3 miles from the drag on Guadalupe, a hotspot packed with shops, restaurants and a few bars.

Within walking distance (less than half a mile), you have:

Kerbey Lane Cafe - signature Austin breakfast, lunch and dinner - famous for their pancakes, queso and more. Best of all, 24/7!

Snow Pea - delicious Chinese cuisine and sushi - a must have.

Austin's Pizza - Pizza for pick up or delivery right down the road, or walk over and enjoy!

For delicious burgers, check out

Hill-Bert's Hamburgers - burgers, fries and shakes, right down the road. What more could you ask? Half a mile.

For a little more of a drive, Austin's nightlife is available to you just a few miles south in downtown Austin. So come check it out!

Why Oakmont Heights, Austin, TX, USA:
Hyde Park is an even mix of city life with a quaint feel. With much of Austin's action happening within a 3 mile radius, you'll have quick access to the University of Texas, downtown, the Austin Convention Center, and many other Austin happenings. Conveniently situated between Red River and Guadalupe street (and a straight shot to I-35), you don't have to be a master navigator to drive around. And, if you don't feel like driving, you can simply step outside to catch the bus that stops within 30 feet of your front door. Also, with a few varieties of local restaurants and shops within a 5 minute walk, you don't have to venture far for a night out. Or, when you're not feeling like a tourist, you can also walk to Shipe Park or one of the nearby cafés, and simply lay low.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is also ideal for large groups, looking for 3 - 5 bedrooms - up to 11 people (though we are NOT a party house). You can bring your large group for weddings, seminars, SXSW, UT games/events, ACL, F1 and more.
