*IMPORTANT: Interested renters: Please be sure to include your telephone number when you contact me, as we sometimes have a quick question or two for potential renters on the phone. Thanks!

This house is a comfortable retreat during your time in Austin. Beautifully decorated, comfortably furnished, lots of natural light, and just minutes from anything you need or want to do in Austin.

Guests will have access to Internet, cable TV, a beautiful kitchen that offers a full sized fridge, microwave, blender, coffee maker, and toaster oven. (There is no standard oven, but there is a double hot plate/cook top.) Washer and dryer are also available. {There is a Randalls grocery store just a 3 minute walk away, and a Target within a 2 minute drive or 5 minute walk.}

Packet' for you upon your arrival with helpful details in it. (That will also be emailed to you before your stay, as there is lots of useful information in it for you.)

We look forward to working with our guests and providing them a wonderful and comfortable space during their time in Austin.


This eclectic and trendy neighborhood is the very best part of 78745, because it is located just ONE block south of 78704 (downtown and South Lamar) and is SO close to downtown, Zilker Park, South Congress (SoCo), the airport, Formula 1 track (Circuit of the Americas), and more. Plus, it's within a 1-2 minute drive of Randalls (grocery), Target, and fast food restaurants. This is an older Austin neighborhood, and has beautiful large oak trees and is a nice quiet street.

Looking for good Tex-Mex? Check out Maria's Taco Express just minutes up the road on South Lamar. Great food and often live music. BBQ? Rudys and The Salt Lick are our favorites.


Located near 290/Hwy 71 (quick access to downtown, the airport, Formula 1 track, and Interstate 35), and conveniently located around the corner from several Capital Metro bus routes. If you have a car, you may park in designated spot near house and/or on the street out front. Please do not block driveway, as there are tenants in the back of the property that use that driveway. 5 minutes from downtown Austin. Airport is just a 10 minute drive or taxi ride from this house. Formula 1 race track is 13 miles from here.


Minimum 2 night stay.

Check in: 3pm. Check out: 11am.

Absolutely NO SMOKING is allowed inside.

We prefer no smoking on premises.

NO PETS allowed.

Please read other rules included in rental agreement that we'll email you after booking.

About Sarah and Eric Jordan

E has lived in Austin for almost 20 years, S for 12, and we just love it!

Get-to-know-us-question: Five things we can't live without?

1) Our family. 2) Sarah's camera. 3) Coffee. 4) Sleep (yet we never seem to get enough thanks to #1). 5) A little couch time on weekends.

We hope you have a wonderful stay in the ATX. ~Eric & Sarah

Why Sarah and Eric Jordan chose South Austin

We used to live in this cozy house before we had kids and it was one of the best times of our lives. There are so many things to do and see here in Austin, special events going on, amazing nightlife, and SO much more. And the best part: They are all just minutes away from this house!

What makes this house unique

Everything is close by. And the house and neighborhood are super cute. This is a comfortable place to unwind after a big day of exploring Austin. It has a huge front yard, lots of outdoor space, and is a great place to enjoy Austin.

Great neighborhood, great location

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here to go to the Motogp at the COTA. The house was very nice, clean and the neighborhood is slow and safe. 6 street short ride from house, racetrack 30 minutes with traffic. Go to Dan's burgers, excellent. Owners on top of emails and commicate right away.

Lovely small town feel

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed a weekend stay in this pleasant frame house in a very quiet neighborhood in south Austin. We chose the location because it was close to our son's apartment. The house was clean and quiet and very comfortable. The location is close to South Lamar and South Congress and convenient to the Downtown and 6th Street area. Also has easy access to highway 71 running between IH35 and MOPAC. We had a very pleasant stay and would definitely choose to stay again.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This house is in the perfect location to explore Austin and the surrounding hill country. It is as advertised and has the basics. I would have liked to have had access to the closet in the bedroom to hang our clothes and store our luggage. The house is clean and neat and everything worked. The neighborhood has everything you could need. It is always more relaxing to stay in a home instead of hotel. We would stay again😃�

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the review, Wendy! :) We use the house for other things during the week, so have to lock up closets for that purpose. But we hope all of the hooks to hang things on both doors was ample for some of your clothing. Glad you enjoyed your stay and time in Austin!
