About the property

Downtown location with pool - perfect for groups. Walk to bars & famous La BBQ

Our spectacular, industrial-chic 4 bed-room/3.5 bath is perfect for your group. The open-concept 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath main house, the separate 1-bedroom, 1-full bath studio apartment, and a designer pool with two patio areas are all included. Our home will wow everyone in your group.


- Super close to the Convention Center (SXSW) and downtown Rainey/6th St. Walk to E. 6th street entertainment district (Hotel Vegas, Scoot Inn, the White Horse).

- The famous La BBQ and many hip bars (WeatherUP, StayGold, Drinks Lounge) are all within two blocks from the house.

- Walk to the best breakfast taco place at Las Cazuelas, and grab your morning latte across street at Flat Track Coffee.

- For sure also check out the nearby food truck parks, new food trucks are featured all the time, it's part of Austin's food culture.


We design and setup the place with big group in mind.

THE MAIN HOUSE’s open-concept living/dining/kitchen area has lots of space for eating, lounging, cooking, laughing, watching a movie on the flat-screen TV, and planning your Austin itinerary. Stained concrete floors, sleek modern furnishings, designer finishes, and unique art make this house a contemporary gem.

In the galley-style kitchen, you’ll find all major appliances, cabinets fully stocked with culinary necessities, and tons of counter space for making a big meal.

THE STUDIO APARTMENT above the garage is completely detached from the main house, yet easy access through the backyard. It features its own kitchen/dining area, and a studio living/bedroom area with a queen bed, sofa beds, a flat-screen TV and a full bath.


Combined with beds and sofa bed, everybody in your group will have a comfortable spot to crash. We have prepared plenty of beddings, sheets, pillows, blankets, towels and pool towels for everybody.


- Average $5-$8 Uber/Cab ride to get you anywhere - 6th St. Rainey St. UT, Convention Center (SXSW) etc.

- Walking distance to hip bars & restaurant and famous Austin food trucks.

- Onsite parking available for our guests.


You will have access for the main house, the apartment studio, 2 backyard patios, and the private pool.


We strive to make your stay comfortable and memorable. We are available 24/7 through phone/email/text to take good care of your group.

About Dana (AustinPoolHouse)

Hi - my name is Dana! I have lived and traveled around the world, I proudly call Austin home now, be glad to show you around.

Dana (AustinPoolHouse) purchased this house in 2015

Why Dana (AustinPoolHouse) chose East Downtown

Just like you, we love to stay in vacation rental home when we travel. We always enjoy hanging out with families and friends after a long day, that's why we make sure this house is perfect for a "travel gathering".

What makes this house unique

It's really hard to find a house in downtown Austin that has pool. Not only this house is so close to downtown, the designer pool in the backyard is surrounded by tall bamboos, it makes you feels like you are at a private spa, our guests absolutely love it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The entire place was very well thought out and there was never anything we needed that we weren't able to find in the house. There was plenty of sleeping spaces for a large group and everyone felt that they had sufficient privacy. We took Ride Austin/ Fasten rides almost everywhere we went and they were short and inexpensive rides. We did walk to 6th Street one day and it was a nice 20-30 minute walk. Right around the corner we found some amazing food and a great bar called the Craftsman. All in all it was a fabulous experience and we would definitely return.

We had an AMAZING time at Dana's Pool House. Upon arrival, the house was very clean and had everything organized and set up for us. There was plenty of room for the 12 girls to each have their place to sleep. The pool was great as we spent a whole day hanging out in the pool. Dana texted me upon arrival to make sure everything was good and was responsive to any questions. If we travel to Austin again would stay here!

Great location, house and host!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Austin for a girls trip and had an amazing time. The house was a great size to fit all of us comfortably and the location was fabulous. We walked to breweries, coffee shops, food trucks, restaurants and the liquor store. The pool area had both shade and sunny spots and felt very private. Dana was an awesome host and made check-in, checkout, and our overall stay very easy! Would highly recommend.

Awesome house in great location

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Austin pool house for my sisters bachelorette party and it was absolutely perfect. There were 14 of us including the moms of the bride and groom who stayed in the pool house and we all fit perfectly. Despite the cold temps the pool looked great. The location is walkable to breweries, bars, restaurants, food trucks and even a market with local craft beer and wine. Just a short uber to downtown and the airport. Dana was an extremely generous host who had every detail covered including complimentary beer and coffee and all the house instructions clearly spelled out. We had an amazing time and would highly recommend this house for families or groups!
