About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 12

This spacious 4BR/2BA house is located next to Stacy Park, within walking distance of the hot spots of the South Congress strip such as HopDoddy, Vespaio, Homeslice and South Congress Cafe. Guests can easily walk to Town Lake, and just over the bridge, to Downtown. Perfect for friends, families, and groups, this large home accommodates up to 12 guests. This is a lovely family-occupied home in a gorgeous, peaceful neighborhood --nothing loud after 10PM. The roomy kitchen is stocked with everything needed to prepare delicious meals, including a double oven, industrial-strength juicer, and a waffle maker. There are both propane and charcoal grills as options. The house is great for enjoying the indoors with a stereo, piano, and record player accompanied by a fantastic vinyl collection. Beautiful bamboo floors are present in the bedrooms downstairs. The master bedroom has a queen-size bed and the other three bedrooms each have one full-size bed. There are additional mattresses for larger groups. There are children’s amenities available and the house has a washer and dryer. There is ample street parking.

The house is located in a quiet neighborhood on picturesque Blunn Creek, yet a only blocks away from great shops like the GQ featured Stag, rated one of the best men's clothing stores in the country, and for women, the Austin original, By George. Additionally, this home is within walking distance to The Continental Club, one of the most popular music venues in Austin. Just a bit further down the road, guests can access the Lady Bird Johnson Hike and Bike trail or watch the 1,000,000+ bats that make Austin their home in the summer months and fly out from the South Congress Bridge. Just across the bridge is the heart of Downtown, offering more music venues, restaurants, and the State Capitol. Guests can use the two bicycles available with the property to explore the incredibly bike friendly South Austin area or ride 2.5 miles to Barton Springs Pool and Zilker Park. For families or guests who want to enjoy the Texas sunshine, this home is next to a park that offers a playscape, hiking trails, tennis courts, a baseball field, a volleyball net, and a swimming pool. The amenities and central location of this home ensure that in, and out of the house, there is always something for everyone to do.

The City of Austin limits occupancy to six unrelated adults.

Reviewer Comments:

Relatively small house but perfect for up to 8 guests - One master bedroom with a couple of smaller rooms. Conveniently located to S Congress street, about a 10 minute walk, very close to great restaurants and shopping. The only "different" thing about this place was no TV but it was almost refreshing to get away from that (does have great wifi). Overall very satisfied and would book here again!

Sunset Lane

  • 5 of 5

I went with a group of coworkers & we loved the house! It looked small in the pictures but we could've easily fit two more in with our group of 12! The house was more then cozy! The owners were very welcoming and invited us to a concert in the park & they provided all of the amenities you could think of! My group LOVED the music room. The house was well within walking distance of all the major parks, and was secluded off a side street. The neighborhood was great to walk through at sunset. If we come back, we will definitely be staying @ the house on Sunset Lane!

Perfect house for a carefree weekend

  • 5 of 5

This house worked perfectly for our family (3 adults, 4 young kids). It's located in a great neighborhood right by the greenbelt. The kids could go out exploring with ease. It also was close to a school park and neighborhood park. The swing in the yard was a favorite of all my kids and so was the trampoline. As far as the amenities, also spot on. The kitchen was stocked well which made our short stay so much easier, not having to purchase condiments, etc. Overall, I think we will be staying here again in the future for our family visits.

Good location but pricey for the value

  • 3 of 5

Property is very well located near SoCo. Nice and calm environment, but close to everything in Austin.

Amazing vinyl collection and player in living room.

For sleeping for 12, house is small. Master bedroom very comfortable with extra mattress on the floor for one adult or 2 small kids. 2nd and 3rd room ok for 2 each room (double bed each one) but for extra adult, very small rooms and mattress on the floor. The 4th room is ok for one with a single bed, and there is an extra single bed, but located in the living room and there aren't shades to close the entire room at night. Eating for 12 is very complicated because dining room is small. It works ok for 8 max, the rest has to eat at living room.

Some furniture is vintage and looks nice, but some have worn out parts.

Cleaning was ok at first impression, but underneath stove and in parts that are harder to reach you could see dirt accumulated.

Overall good experience, but not value for money.

Nice Space

  • 4 of 5

I booked this property for a girls trip with a lot of high school friends. Although it says it "sleeps 12" I would disagree. There are mattress pads- enough for twelve. However, there are not beds for 12 and so, I respectfully disagree. Plus, having twelve is a lot for the space. Besides that, we loved the house. The record player was awesome and it felt very homey. However, I would recommend looking elsewhere for groups larger than 8-10.

Owner's Response: Hi Caroline, thank you so much for the review. We are happy to hear that you loved the house and really enjoyed our record player too! With regards to the sleeping arrangements, we definitely appreciate your feedback. The home does allow for accommodations of up to 12 people with 2 on the queen bed in the master bedroom, 2 on each of the full-size beds in the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th bedrooms, and one each on the 4 air mattresses kept at the property. The description of the home does detail the size bed each room has and is also clear that air mattresses are supplied for 4 of the maximum 12 guest occupancy. We do apologize if that was not clear when booking the home, but it does sound as if you overall loved our home. You were perfect guests and we do hope you will come stay with us again soon! -The TurnKey VR Team

The house is located in a quiet neighborhood on picturesque Blunn Creek steps from local-favorite venue Home Slice Pizza and Austin's premiere sushi restaurant, Uchi. South Congress Avenue is within walking distance as well as Lady Bird Lake, home to Austin’s famous hike & bike trails that wrap around the water. Downtown Austin and Zilker Park are minutes away and the house is next to a park with a playscape, more hiking trails, a baseball field, tennis courts, a volleyball net, and a swimming pool.
