About the property

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom with Downtown views

This 3 bedroom/ 2.5 bath house was built in 2013. Sitting on a 1/4 acre lot, it has beautiful outdoor living spaces including an outdoor fireplace with a mounted tv, covered back porch, wrap-around front porch and ample lawn space for kid or adult recreation.

Inside you will find a beautifully designed open floor plan with significant natural light and high ceilings. All of the appliances are state of the art and brand new. The kitchen is fully equipped for every skill level and there is plenty of seating and room to entertain. The living room features another limestone fireplace with mounted tv and a sectional couch to relax and enjoy the big game.

On the first floor you will find the secluded master suite featuring a beautiful marble bathroom and glass shower with two shower heads. The second floor has two more bedrooms and a full bathroom.

This house is the perfect option for UT sports events and downtown Austin action. It is a 3 minute walk to the MLK light rail station or a 1 mile drive to downtown. And it is easily found only 7.5 miles from the airport.

This beautiful house is a great place to spend the week for Austin events or for a family and friend get together. The great city of Austin has so much to offer and this house is the perfect launching place to experience it all!

For those traveling with children, a high chair, pack-n-play and various baby essentials are available upon your request.

Perfect graduation weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This home was a perfect gathering place for our family for graduation weekend. It is close to campus and easy access to I-35 and other areas of Austin. It is a beautiful home and provided everything we needed for our stay. Erin was so easy to work with and responded very quickly to any questions I had prior to the stay. We highly recommend this rental!

Girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for our annual weekend girl trip - there were 7 of us coming in from Fort Worth. The house is very centrally located - just a few minutes from downtown. The house was just what we needed - the house felt essentially very new, all modern updates, nice large living room, great kitchen, nice bathrooms. Great back porch to sit on and relax in the evening with a glass of wine. We had a great time!

I went with a couple of guys for my cousins bachelor party. We are a little on the not crazy group so we wanted to stay just outside of downtown. The first impression of the house was definitely a wow factor. It seriously felt like home. Big kitchen table and huge kitchen to chat around. Comfortable beds and amazing bathrooms. The only downfall is we didn't get to meet the owners to personally thank them for providing us with a great house!!

Everything you need

  • 5 of 5

This was such a nice communal living space with updated appliances. Close to campus and downtown. With Uber available almost anywhere, you really just need a location within five minutes of city and this definitely offers just that.

Sits on a great street and is a great neighborhood. Huge backyard available as well. Thanks for letting us stay!

Great house. This is a very clean and up to date house. This must be where Martha Stewart stays when she visits Austin.

7.2 miles (15 minute drive) from the Austin Bergstrom airport, we are easy to get to and a great launching place to downtown Austin. Or stick around and enjoy the quirkiness of East Austin; food trucks and walking trails in Meuller, trendy restaurants like Dai Due, East Side Cafe and Haymaker on Manor Road, and great bars like the Violet Social Club on East 6th Street. If you are a UT sports fan, we are located 1.5 miles from the Frank Erwin Center and the Texas Royal-Memorial Stadium. Also on this side of 35 are a few well known restaurants like Franklin BBQ, Qui and Juan in a Million.
