Unique Downtown Property, Private Home with Views and Amenities.
We work at HomeAway and the location of this property was fantastic. We walked to and from the office, usually via Whole Foods. The rooms were spacious, practical and spotless. We had a lovely tiered garden to enjoy at the end of the day with a view of the city lights. The owners were attentive and so considerate. They made 3 umbrellas appear out of nowhere on a rainy day! We will stay here again.
Within a short walk of the best of the best local restaurants and sometimes-classy/sometimes funky shops, this perfectly-maintained modern home was the ideal place for my two adult children and me to rendezvous. Its tall ceilings and large rooms gave us plenty of space. The comfortable furniture and warm beds made relaxing...well, relaxing. From here, we easily found our way to four days' worth of historic and entertainment hotspots, walked up and down the Castle Hill District environs and enjoyed the evening lights of the city. The property is home to some gorgeous historic live oak trees in a terraced, landscaped back yard. Eating Christmas breakfast outside under the canopy of those magnificent trees was icing on the cake. The owners were helpful, present, but never intrusive. When I return to Austin, this is where I'll come again.
Wow! Was pleased with everything and hope to return. A wonderful zen yard with twinkles of the city lights amid the large tree leaves. The host are friendly and think of everything, thank you.
Very clean, thoughtful interiors and furnishings / wonderfully landscaped yards with great Oak trees canopy / close and convenient to sixth street but far enough away to have quiet nights / Owner (Chuck) gave great tips on what to see and do in Austin. Highly recommend Bat City House and would stay there again on next Austin trip.
Best place in the best neighborhood. This clean and modern space with views of the Austin skyline and walkable to everything was the perfect place for two couples on a trip to Austin. Chuck greeted us and made sure we had everything we needed and was always available if we had questions.
The stylish landscaping and modern furnishings in the middle of this historic neighborhood were a treat. Parking wasn't a problem with the resident only permit available and it was super quiet for sleeping.
We will always stay here on return trips to Austin, our new home away from home.
Great place to stay! Impeccable accommodations. Beautifully furnished flat filled with essential supplies, lovely patio area. Hosts are so friendly and helpful. And the location worked perfectly for us. Restaurants, shops and Whole Foods are within walking distance. And, with its central location, it's near many points of interest in Austin. Highly recommend Bat City House!

A Must See !!! Austin Bats, Largest Urban Bat Colony in North America.
The Ann W. Richards Congress Avenue bridge in downtown Austin is the spring and summer home to some 750,000 bats with up to 1.5 million bats at the peak of the bat-watching season. Take a walk to Congress Avenue bridge just before sunset, and watch the bats take flight. It's a spectacular sight to see.
