The B Side (license #67509): a clean, stylish 2 bedroom, 2 bath rental on a sweet cul-de-sac just steps from a greenbelt entrance and minutes to downtown Austin.
The perfect combo of action and serenity can be found here. Relax in the clean, boho-chic interior, entertain in the private back yard under a canopy of live oaks and festive patio lights, gear up and jog/hike/mountain bike/rock climb on the endless miles of hike and bike trails, just steps from the front door. Make your way to one of the many watering holes along the way or jog/hike your way to Barton Springs Pool (~ 1 mile). Experience all this nature on your way to one of Austin’s renowned festivals at Zilker Park while everyone else is parking miles away!
If you cant get enough, book the neighboring unit as well (VRBO #714066)! This is one side of a duplex, but each side lives like a house separate fenced yards and entrances.

Artfully updated interior with polished concrete floors, quality furnishings, soft linens, clean, fluffy towels and everything you need for an enjoyable stay.

DREAM:
Stylish Queen Bed features a comfy mattress on a platform bedframe, high thread count sheets and velvet/silk duvet. There are 2 closets including a large walk-in closet. French blue antique chest to store your things.

The Second Bedroom is outfitted with 2 twin beds with cozy jersey sheets and colorful bohemian covers and pillows. A mid-century style, marble topped table with lamp is between them. Push the beds together if you prefer! Closet outfitted with drawers and hangers.

Blinds covered with beautiful curtains in both bedrooms allow you to sleep late if you would like. Eclectic art decorates the walls.

Extra guests? Crisp linens and a pillow are provided sleeper sofa.

CLEAN:
The Master features a hotel-style bathroom with a tub/shower combo behind the door.

The hall bathroom is directly across from the twin bedroom. There is a tub/shower combo in here as well.

Both bathrooms are stocked clean, fluffy towels, plenty of washcloths and toilet paper, shampoo, conditioner and soap.

There is a washer and dryer set in the hallway.
Pack lightly and wash while you are here!

NOURISH:
The fully equipped kitchen features electric appliances, coffee maker, toaster, plenty of dishes, utensils, glasses and cookware. The open concept kitchen/living /dining room makes it easy to entertain. Open up the sliding door and let the outside in or step onto the large deck and enjoy a meal al fresco under the patio lights.

Don’t feel like cooking? You are just steps away from Taco Deli, where you can get the best tacos in Austin for breakfast or lunch! Feeling snacky? The Food Mart across the street has a great selection of snacks, beer and wine and just opened a smoothie/juice/coffee/sandwich/salad bar. Pizza oven and brews on tap coming soon!

EXPLORE:
With miles of hike and bike trails at your doorstep, the possibilities are endless.
For transportation, consider renting a car or bike, or use GetMe, Wingz, Cars2Go or make use of the bus stop right across the street. You are just 5 minutes from vibrant downtown Austin & Restaurant Row (Barton Springs).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: I am a residential real estate agent and my husband is a commercial broker. We have a nerdy love of good real estate. We have felt so fortunate to build our lives and raise our kids in Austin. Jon is a rare, true born and raised Austinite who has a deep knowledge and love for the city. Fair moved here to attend UT and never left. We love the festivals, many restaurants, kayaking on Lady Bird Lake, walking/running on the trails, going to any of the great Farmers Markets, listening to live music...

Why the Owner Chose Barton Hills, Austin, TX, USA:
Jon bought this property back in his bachelor days. Lots of fun things happened there. That’s all we are going to say about that… Then we spent the first few years of our marriage there, building our careers, dreaming about our futures, making plans… We moved to a few other great spots in Austin, tweaking our dreams as we have journeyed. For years, this property served as a long term rental for us. We have met so many great people who have been our tenants and have become our friends. It suits a wide range of needs - from the bachelor who wants a quick cab ride downtown, the athlete who mountain bikes/runs/rock climbs on the trail every morning, the young couple starting their careers, a sweet family whose kids play in the large yard and learn to ride bikes on the quiet cul de sac, empty nesters wanting to downsize.... It has been a haven for so many. And now with Austin bringing in so many people for our amazing festivals & business opportunities, we have made it this sweet spot available to more of you! We have remodeled both sides to freshen it up and add style, furnishing both sides with quality brands, soulful treasures, soft linens and all the little details. With both short and long term options, we are happy to fill a variety of needs: a weekend retreat, a temporary home to someone in town on a business assignment, a home to run to in between homes in this hot real estate market, a romantic getaway, a restful spot after long days at ACL… It brings us joy to become another little piece of your story. We hope your stay becomes a sweet memory and a place you look forward to returning to when you want to enjoy the best of Austin!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Where else can you be so close to all the hustle and bustle of vibrant downtown Austin but also be steps away from the peace and serenity of nature AND the best tacos in Austin? Austin + Nature + Tacos + Stylish place to stay = perfection!
