About the Property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4-5

Here's a fabulous little house for you for your upcoming Austin adventure. Stay in style: vintage meets mod, 2 amazing swing chairs for ultimate relaxation, and a lovely deck with a pond built into it that you can dip your feet or just gaze upon its lovely plants as you enjoy the sounds of the soothing fountain after a long day of live music/race-car gawking/shopping/whatever it is that brings you to town.

Awesome location -- totally bikeable to Zilker/hike & bike trail/downtown/South Lamar/South Congress and in a nice, quiet location, but very close to tons of cool coffee shops, boutiques, restaurants (recommendations available upon request!) You can catch a bus to downtown or the east side in a few minutes, or over to South Congress.

There is a queen-sized bed and a long couch that's very comfortable to sleep on. I can provide inflatable beds for up to 2 extra people (for a total of 5 at the very maximum).

The Neighborhood

I've lived in this area since I moved to Austin, and I've watched it develop from a cool laid-back area just south of downtown into something more dynamic. Austin's dining scene is exploding in this area. If you're here, check out Barley Swine (walking distance), Odd Duck, Lulu B's (a terrific Vietnamese trailer, lunch only), El Primo (awesome taco truck outside of Once Over coffee shop, on s. 1st breakfast/lunch only). Kerbey Lane, a very Austin-ish diner that's open 24 hours, is a stone's throw away; Mr. Natural, a great vegetarian Mexican place, is right around the corner.


Cat!
I have an awesome orange cat, and she'll be on the premises while you're here. She's very cuddly and low-maintenance. So if you don't want to be in charge of an awesome kitty during your vacation, I advise finding another spot. Thanks!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I am a native New Yorker, a travel fiend, a lover of design, a jewelry designer, a manic music collector, and a Spanish-English translator. Please don't hesitate to ask if you need any Austin advice, because I've been here for 10 years and know the city pretty darn well.

Why the Owner Chose South Lamar, Austin, TX, USA:
I have lived in this zip code since moving to Austin ten years ago, and it's been my favorite ever since. It's funky, safe, and close to nature and downtown. Austin's best restaurants are on S. Lamar, which is a stone's throw away; it's only 15 mins by car to the airport; downtown is also just 15 mins away, and Town Lake, the hiking and biking paradise (a must-visit), is easily accessible.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A lovely deck (with pond!), swing chairs, and a hammock in the spacious, tree-filled backyard make this a relaxing oasis for your trip.
