About the property

Comfortable 2 bedroom/2bath in excellent location near everything!

Comfy, clean, modern/updated duplex. Large living area with 45' flatscreen (w/cable), wifi, a large comfortable sectional, open floorplan, eat-in kitchen that seats 6-8. Has a small office nook in living area for when you need to check in with the home office. Almost everything is brand new. Kitchen has new stainless appliances, bathrooms redone, new flooring throughout. Huge master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and reading area. New, modern washer/dryer in case you want to catch up on laundry. Small private backyard for sitting outside under the trees. Location is great. Perfectly situated for North Austin Access (Domain, Arboretum), downtown (just a few minutes down MOPAC), Central Austin (just across from Allendale and other cool areas) and the lakes. Grab a Car2Go just around the corner and explore the city! This is just a very comfortable place to use as home base in Austin.

About Trenton Riley

I split time between Austin and San Diego (two GREAT places!!) This is my Austin home and I love it.

Trenton Riley purchased this house in 2013

Why Trenton Riley chose Balcones Terrace

I bought this property because it is in a great little neighborhood, has excellent access to Central and North Austin, and has a great feel to it. This unit sits back off the street and has a very private feel to it. Very comfortable.

What makes this house unique

I loved the private little backyard (still in the potential stage) and the big trees in the yard! The property is uniquely positioned near Mopac for easy access to downtown AND very close to the Technology Corridor. Perfect for access to Google, Dell, IBM, Seton North, Apple, Flextronics, National Instruments, and a host of others. One exit from the Domain. Why stay in a stuffy hotel when you can have all the comforts of home??

Splendid and ideal

  • 5 of 5

This cozy bungalow is excellently appointed, beautifully staged and more than adequately stocked. It feels like home the moment you walk in. The pre-visit “instructions/info sheet” is awesome and sets you up to hit the ground running. My wife and I really enjoyed quiet evenings having a glass of wine in the private backyard. I will definitely stay here every time I come to town. Unless you, reading this, are currently checked in that is.

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here last year while visiting family and enjoyed it so much we decided to stay again this year, it certainly didn’t disappoint! The location is perfect and very easy to get pretty much anywhere. The home is very clean, comfortable, and quiet. We are looking forward to next years visit! Thank you Trenton for another fabulous stay!!

Exceptionally CLEAN & Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Great property! We have rented through VRBO approximately 15 times, and this home was in the top three for cleanliness. The house was spotless! Couldn't find a thing that we needed that wasn't already there...laundry pods, canvas grocery bags (no plastic bags allowed in Austin), coffee, sugar, shampoo, extra pillows/blankets, filtered water. The location was great for everything Austin offers & a quiet neighborhood. Grocery about a mile away. The outdoor space was perfect for morning coffee. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to anyone. Thank you Trenton!

Great property and owner

  • 5 of 5

The property, as stated, was updated very nicely It was the perfect place for our small family gathering. Spacious enough for all family members to be in the same room Bedrooms are very comfortable The owner was very considerate in allowing us to arrive early Any time that I emailed he responded very promptly I will definitely stay there again in future visits to Austin.
