Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

There’s ceiling height to spare in our breezy 3BR/2BA duplex, with a stunning open-concept living space and a relaxed balcony area. Best of all? We’re central to everything South Austin has to offer!

INSIDE THE HOUSE

The open-concept main floor is truly jaw dropping, with atrium-style high ceilings and lots of natural light thanks to its floor-to-ceiling windows. Relax in the upscale living area, with elegant furnishings, a fireplace, and wall-mounted flat screen TV.

The kitchen, just off the living area, features granite countertops and lots of cabinet space. It’s fully equipped with gas range, garbage disposal, coffee maker and other appliances and tools.

When dinner’s ready, enjoy a shared meal in the dining nook just off the kitchen, with seating for up to 4. Or sit at the kitchen bar with room for 3!

Our house accommodates up to 8 guests. The master bedroom, with private balcony access, is furnished with a king-sized bed and flat screen TV, plus its own en suite with tub/shower combo. The cozy 2nd bedroom has a daybed that folds out into a queen, while the 3rd bedroom, located on the main floor, has a modern queen-sized bed and elegant hardwood floors. The sectional in the living space folds out into a queen to accommodate 2 more guests.

THE LOCATION

We’re in South Austin, close to all the dining, drinking and shopping on South Lamar and So-Fi, and minutes from South Congress!

That means you’re moments away from delicious local eats. Tapas at Winebelly is only 4 minutes away by car. Try some delicious Ethiopian at The Flying Carpet, 5 minutes away, or treat yourself to the out-of-this-world tasting menu at Michelin star restaurant Barley Swine, 5 minutes away in South Lamar.

As for shopping, keep it weird by picking up a souvenir at one of the hip boutiques on South Congress, just a 5-minute drive from our door.

When you decide to venture farther out, Downtown and UT Austin are only 13 minutes away by car.

The City of Austin limits occupancy to six unrelated adults.

So cute! Great house! Close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for an annual girls trip. We were close to all the local nightlife and food. The House was clean there was plenty of seating and beds. The king bed and then queen bed downstairs’ headboards were noisy (every little move made a noise) but other than that, there were zero complaints from our group. Would definitely stay there again!

Perfect location for Mercury Hall wedding

  • 4 of 5

We rented this place for immediate family for our wedding down the street. The location was convenient to the venue and the rental was spacious for everyone. The duplex sits on a hill with a driveway that is shared with the neighbor. Overall, the space was adequate for what we needed.

Clean, easy to find, like new. Was not able to use the hide-a-bed. Couldn't get it to unfold.

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

This house was awesome for bachelorette weekend! Spacious, great neighborhood, and just a short car ride away from everything we wanted to do. The only thing that kept this from being a 5-Star review for me was the mold behind the shower curtain. We let housekeeping know about it before we left so hopefully it was rectified! Other than that, everything was very clean and wonderful. I’d stay here again in a heartbeat! It’s a duplex with the family living in the other half. They were very kind!

Please be assured our local Field Operations Team is following up and will make sure any mold is removed and the shower curtain is replaced if needed.

Beautiful home, but bring your own toilet paper

  • 3 of 5

All of the amenities of home, except toilet paper. We rented this home for four days for a bachelorette party. The home itself is very beautiful, with a large living room, perfect for everyone to hang out in. There were just two things that kind of put a damper on the weekend, one being that apparently once you run out of the "starter pack" of two rolls (not even full rolls) of toilet paper, you are on your own. The instructions book left in the home tells you that there is extra tp in a few different places, so we figured we were set. However, upon running out of tp in the evening, I contacted the host and they said we were on our own. This information would have been nice to know going into the weekend, so we could have planned accordingly. Also, the smoke alarm that is located at the highest point of the ceiling started beeping in the wee hours of the morning as the batteries were low. Since it was so high, there was nothing we could do to turn this off. This continued to occur for the next 10 hours before checking out of the home.

Location is on a quiet street and pretty close (driving wise) to most of Austins attractions.

Owner's Response: Hello Natalie, Thank you so much for your review and helpful feedback! Please let us assure you we follow-up to ensure the battery for the smoke detector is replaced as well as any pest issues. We stock each home with what is called a "starter supply" of basic items. It is not designed to be an unlimited supply but, rather, to get a typical reservation through a weekend or get folks started so that they can enjoy their arrival days, take inventory, and pick up whatever else is needed to get them through their trip as needed. You were perfect guests, and we appreciate you taking care of our place as if it were your own. Please come stay again any time! -The TurnKey VR Team

Austin Getaway

Reviewer Comments:

When we arrived the home was in excellent condition (clean, tidy). Anything we noticed that wasn’t supplied was dealt with by a phone call to TurnKey or letting the very friendly owner (who lives in other half of duplex) know. Rooms were spacious. Excellent availability of appliances, including washer & dryer. Due to the height of the 1st level ceiling, adjusting the temp of heat to be an acceptable temp for both floors was difficult. (It was cool in Feb. when we stayed). Location is great to have quick access to main routes through and out of the city. Driving to the “best of South Austin” was more appropriate than walking. We tried several of the recommended local restaurants …. Thai Fresh is great (must try their ice cream), Wine Belly has great tapas, ABGB (Austin Brewery Gardens) is close by on Oltorf and good for a tasty lunch. Magnolia Café on South Congress has a great overall easy menu.
