Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We have lived in Austin for over 20 years. We love showing our visiting friends and family all that Austin has to offer, so this vacation rental was a fun step for us. Our goal with the house was to protect a piece of Austin history, as the house was built in 1907, while providing a unique and comfortable place for visitors to call home in Austin.

Why the Owner Chose East Cesar Chavez, Austin, TX, USA:
We have lived in the neighborhood for 10 years, and we remodeled this house with the intention of preserving the house and its original elements, all while making it a comfortable and welcoming launching pad for exploring all that Austin and the nearby neighborhoods have to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love that with a 5-10 minute walk from this house you may be at the lake watching the birds, at the busy East 6th Street entertainment area eating at the food trucks or bar hopping, looking at art galleries, or on Rainey Street exploring new pubs.
