Brand New Modern Home in East Austin - Walk Downtown!

Bedrooms 3
Half Baths1
Space 1,500 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom close to everything downtown and on the east side.

Our house was just built in 2014. Beautiful modern touches are everywhere - from the stainless kitchen appliances to the spacious tiled showers to the custom painted arrow wall in the living room.

Three spacious bedrooms with queen beds have heavenly Tuft and Needle mattresses and luxury bedding. The master has a huge walk in closet and the other two have ample closet space as well. Two fold up mattresses can be paced in any room for a customized sleeping arrangement.

The beautifully equipped kitchen has everything you need to cook a meal. Or if you prefer, you can just relax at the dining table with a cup of Texas pecan coffee.

Mounted flat screens in the living room and master have built in Roku so you never have to be separated from your beloved Netflix, HBO Go or Amazon Prime.

We have handpicked (and even handpainted!) every piece in this space to reflect the local style as well as some global accents inspired by our favorite travels/travel wishlist. We hope you love the house as much as we do!

Guests can enjoy use of the whole house and guest parking spot located next to the unit. A fenced-in, private outdoor space is the perfect spot for an evening drink.

We are licensed by the City of Austin - OL 2014 125614

About Pallu Lares

Hey y'all! I am a born and raised Chicagoan who got one little taste of Austin, TX in 2005 and haven't looked back since. I've the spent the last few years at a tech startup and exploring central Texas with my husband and two tiny whirlwinds. Some of my best travel memories are of amazing hosts from a city apartment in Vienna to a wine country lodge in rural Australia, and that's what prompted me to become a host myself. I can't wait to welcome you to Austin and show you all the amazing tacos, trails, concerts, races, festivals and more that our great city offers!

Pallu Lares purchased this house in 2014

Why Pallu Lares chose East Downtown

I absolutely love this home! In my younger, more carefree days I would have definitely lived somewhere like this with my husband and spent every weekend checking out the cool neighborhood spots. The location cannot be beat!

What makes this house unique

The open layout and proximity to downtown make this a perfect home for groups to stay together and explore/have fun/work in Austin.

Comfortable House in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a wonderful location, near museums, restaurants, and all activities in downtown Austin. My daughter and her husband enjoyed walking by the lake each morning, and my grandsons said that the wifi was so good and fast that their video games worked perfectly. It was July in Texas, and the air conditioning was more than sufficient. All in all, it was perfect for our visit.

Everything was perfect. Great location - were able to walk to almost all of our activities. Great home - especially for our larger group of 6. Pallu was great as well. Anytime I come back to Austin, I'll be staying here.

A lovely, well appointed home, ideally situated for enjoying the great dining and music spots of East Austin. Pallu was a very responsive host, the property was tidy, spacious and 'as advertised.' Would be very happy to stay here again.
