Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: Actors, director, producer, and writers Barbara and Robert have made South Austin their home since 1995. In addition to their innumerable theatrical shenanigans, we enjoy partaking in the singular delights of South Congress, Barton Springs, the hike and bike trail, and welcoming friends and visitors to the glories of Austin.

Why the Owner Chose Bouldin, Austin, TX, USA:
Within mere steps to practical and whimsical retailers, SXSW destinations, the best in live music, our home has been an idyllic place for our family. Walking to the locally owned grocer, barber, restauranteurs, and shop-keepers harken back to neighborly communities of days gone by; meanwhile were at the very center and soul of what makes Austin so unique and such a desired destination.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is simply no better location for entering fully into the Austin experience! South Congress is the number one 'must see' destination for Austin visitors and is ground zero for SXSW and 2 miles from Zilker park, home of Barton Springs and ACL Fest. Despite its unbeatable location one block off of South Congress, Eva Street Retreat is a quiet oasis amid huge shady trees and charming homes that evoke an old-timey, small-town feeling. Your guest parking pass, which comes with your rental for the duration of your stay, ensures you street parking within steps of your door. You'll find sanctuary from your Austin romps in the spacious and elegant suite designed by one of Austin's most noted and respected architects.
