5 Bedroom 3.5 Bath Located On Half Acre Lot! Spread Out And Relax!

Tranquil with a modern country vibe, this house exemplifies South Austin. The main house consists of 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bath with a pull out couch in the living room, comfortably housing 8-10 people. There is a large studio with a queen bed and full bath out back - great for a couple or new family. **This is included in the rental, as the property rents as a whole.**

This property is very private with thick bamboo lining one side of the property. Fenced yard. There is gated parking, which can accommodate a tour bus, RV or boat. 6 cars + RV can fit, with possible additional off site parking across the street. Beautiful outdoor space includes a huge covered deck just off of the kitchen, with full outdoor dining area. Relax with a book on the porch. Bocce ball, ladder ball, corn hole and horseshoes are available for some outside fun!

This property is great for small business groups, bands or large families.

We are pet friendly - please inquire first though!

About Melissa

Troy and I love to build things! Aside from working hard, we love to surf, hike, and enjoy all the live music Austin has to offer. We settled in South Austin after living in Hawaii for 3 years. San Marcos is where we met, and floating the river is one of our favorite past times!

Melissa purchased this house in 2013

Why Melissa chose South Austin

This property has a very special feeling to it. With such a large lot, you have the privacy of the country with the amenities of the city close by. This is the place to sit back, relax, grill or have a fire and enjoy a game of corn hole and a cold beer. Or kick back in a hammock with a good book. This is Peaceful Hill.

What makes this house unique

The large back porch is the most popular gathering area. With the deep bench swings facing each other, it is a great place to relax and visit with friends and family. The large kitchen and open floor plan make for fun dinner parties.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I loved this property! We stayed here for a week because I was getting married in Austin and having my rehearsal dinner. I was a little skeptical when we first drove up because it isn't in the best neighborhood, but when we got inside we were blown away! The property owners were really sweet and helpful. There is a lot of shopping near by, and we were running back and forth constantly while we were preparing for the wedding and rehearsal dinner. I couldn't have asked for a better property. Be wary of the bugs though! There are so many trees around and the roaches came out to play. (One got in my mom's car and she almost had a heart attack LOL!) Everyone that came over loved this property and I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We were also able to bring our dog, and he loved the outdoor area. The fence is not the best for dog owners. So, you have to watch your fur baby when they are outside. Our dog made it through the fence on the left side at one point! Plus he loved all of the squirrels in all the trees.

This place was perfect for hosting our group. Spent one day floating the river and one night out in Austin. Great hosts, great house, zero complaints. Thank you both for sharing your home with us!

Excellent Home and Owner!

  • 5 of 5

The Bluebird House served as a retreat for me and my friends for the long weekend in Austin. The house was clean and furnished with towels, shampoo, soap, and even some local beers in the fridge. The backyard was amazing! It was too hot to start a campfire, but we took advantage of the cornhole set and both charcoal and propane grills to barbecue. Its location was pretty convenient. We were near several markets and stores, and not too far from downtown. Most importantly, the owners were very welcoming and responsive when it came to any questions we had about the house and Austin in general. I will be recommending this place to others!
