Comfortable Updated 2 Bedroom 1 bath home with Wood Floors. WiFi and HDTV. Not a condo, single story entry. One adjacent neighbor (Duplex). Updated kitchen with granite counters, dishwasher (what a luxury in these older properties!), Gas Stove top, MicroWave/Convection Oven. All the utensils and cookware needed. Gas Grill on backyard patio. Laundry with Washer and Drier.


King size bed in one bedroom and 2 twin beds in the second bedroom. Bed linens and bath towels provided. All necessary kitchen, grilling and serving utensils. Max occupancy is 7 with twin blowup. Sorta/kinda/just like home but in downtown Austin! Great spot to relax and stage for your days or evenings in Austin or on Lake Austin.

Across the street from Historic, yet playable, Lions Municipal (Muni) 18 hole Golf Course. You can walk, take the bus or ride your bike to Downtown ($1.25 Bus, $10-15 Cab fair, 10-20 minute bike ride). Super easy walk (600 yards) to Lake Austin's Waterfront where you'll find Oyster Landing that features the Hula Hut, Abels on the Lake, Mozarts Coffee, and of course the Marina, waterfront park and boat launch.

Zilker Park (ACL and other festivals) are about a 2 mile walk or bike ride. City bus is $1.25 with 2 different route buses stop; One bus stop is 300' west, or for a quicker ride to town walk 700' east to the corner of Enfield and Exposition where four bus stops converge. Or call a cab. We are 1 mile to Mopac.

Also we have another vacation rental (North Padre Island waterfront) on vrbo that we've been leasing for years. I say this so that you can see the reviews on that place and get an idea of what kind of owners we are, and how we take care of our guests. Our property in Austin is relatively new on vrbo and so we have only a few reviews thus far.
