There are two units on the property, but guests have full access to the back yard. Townhouse is well sound-proofed, so you need not be concerned about noise made indoors. Owner lives in the second unit.

About Rocio

We love to travel and especially love to snow ski.

Rocio purchased this townhome in 2000

Why Rocio chose Austin

If you want to experience Austin like an Austinite this is the place for you. We are just two blocks from South Lamar which is the one of the main arteries of Austin. You are literally in walking distance of most of what you came to do in our amazing city. Two blocks away from public transportation, tons of local bars, restaurants, pharmacy, and of course live music!!

What makes this townhome unique

We love this home because we are in the heart of the city and we get to come home to an amazing 250 ft deep landscaped yard. The view from the living room and the master bedroom makes coming home an extra special treat. We love to share our garden with friends and family and often have large family style dinners on the lawn- you are welcome to do the same. If you would like for us to arrange a catered dinner for you let us know.

Thanksgiving Holiday Adventure M

  • 5 of 5

My family and I would like to express our sincere thanks for the time we spent at your house. Rocio, we were impressed with your thoughtfulness, the snacks, drinks and flowers were greatly appreciated at the time of our arrival.

The location of your house gave us easy access to nearby Zilker Park, hiking trails,and not to neglect, great restaurants, shops and downtown Austin.

Our stay for the Thanksgiving holidays were truly memorable. We throughly enjoyed your house and without a doubt would highly recommend your property to other family members and friends.

Again, Rocio, thank you for your hospitality.

Awesome Place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay in this town home over the Christmas holidays! Spacious, bright and airy. Back yard was perfect for our two year old who kept referring to it as a park, it's huge!! Convenient to parks, downtown, shopping, and dining. Would definitely recommend and planning to book for our next trip.
