About the property

Cannot be more "in the heart" of Austin for fun activities.

Just a short walk or cab ride to downtown. STR license 917465

After enjoying all that Austin has to offer, come back and relax at a fully remodeled historic, craftsman-style home in the heart of downtown. Unwind in the cozy living space or private courtyard next to the pool or enjoy a game of ping pong in the great room. Enjoy peace and privacy in your own private compound right in the heart of the city. Sip your morning coffee on the large wrap-around porches while the city wakes up around you. Cook some steaks on the grill next to the pool. Our 5 bedroom/3 bath 3000 sq ft house has comfortable furnishings, a large kitchen, 12 foot ceilings and mesquite floors. The huge, beautifully landscaped yard is a rare find in this part of town, great for entertaining or relaxing. The gated driveway will fit up to 5 vehicles. Our home is across the street from the historic French Legation.

Property also includes fully equipped one-bedroom guest house with separate kitchen-bath which sleeps up to 3 more. If not already rented, you can have the option to rent this in addition to the main house.

Close to everything - coffee shops, restaurants and bars all within walking distance. Attractions such The Capitol, Convention Center, UT Stadium, 6th Street are about a 5 - 15 minute walk. Easy 10 minute drive to airport. Our location is in the heart of the area of downtown Austin that was just voted #7 'Hippest Neighborhood in America'.

This is a unique property perfect for a wedding party, family retreat, and corporate headquarters for SXSW or F1 type events. City bus service picks up one block away, car2go is an option and bike rentals are two blocks away on 11th street.

My family and I rented this house for a weekend "stay-cation". The house was spotless and fully supplied with all items needed to prepare meals. We used the pool often and there was plenty of room for our family to spread out. The location of this home can't be beat. We were able to walk a few short blocks north to have brunch at one of our favorite spots, The Hillside Farmacy, and then at night we took full advantage of being able to walk a few blocks south to a few of our favorite places on East 6th. We had some friends stop by as part of a birthday celebration and there was plenty of room to entertain comfortably. Management of the property was quick and thorough when responding to our questions. We are looking forward to booking a future stay-cation at this home.
