Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 10

This spacious house and private guesthouse sleeps 10. The main house has 4 lovely sleeping rooms and 2 gorgeous bathrooms. The guesthouse, separate from the main house and nestled in the trees, has a queen bed and a private bath.

Whether visiting to discover Austin, or retreating for a while in a quiet location surrounded by shade trees and bamboo landscaping, you’ll love beginning and ending your days here.

Despite its quiet, neighborhood feel, this rental is located just a short walk (or a 5-minute Uber ride) from downtown.

INSIDE THE MAIN HOUSE

Open, airy, and cool describes our house and guest house. Vaulted, beamed ceilings add space in the main living area, while big windows add natural light and look out to the yard and its greenery.

Cool grays and blues, plus hardwood floors, create a soothing, yoga-studio vibe. And if you like yoga, this might be your perfect vacation rental. Leave the yoga mats and blocks at home—we provide both!

A glass dining table provides seating for 4, and next to it, the open gourmet kitchen features state-of-the-art stainless appliances, wood cabinets, and a deep farmhouse sink.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed and a spa-like master en-suite bath with double sinks, a large soaking tub, and a glass walk-in shower.

The second sleeping spot, located just outside the master (no door), has a full size platform bed and patio access.

The third bedroom, off the living room (also without a door), has a full size platform bed and a lovely carved door leading to the backyard.

The fourth bedroom has a queen size bed with a floral rug and more Zen-inspired hues for relaxing nights and mornings. The second bathroom has a single sink and glass step-in shower.

INSIDE THE GUEST HOUSE

The studio guesthouse is newly renovated and accessed from the backyard, up a set of stairs. This large space is perfect for two, with a queen-sized bed, a mini-fridge and a sink. The bathroom has a single sink vanity and tub/shower. The studio is a nice separate, private space—great for yoga practice or artistic pursuits!

Shaded by tall trees, the backyard features a covered patio and stainless grill for your evening BBQs.

Because keeping this vacation rental relaxing and inspiring is important to us, we ask that you do not smoke or bring pets with you on your vacation.

THE LOCATION

With a location just one block off of South Lamar, the heart of Austin is right outside your door.

Embrace the hip, neighborhood feel of SoLa, with spots like Patika, one of the coolest upscale coffee spots in town. Or try Aviary, a local wine bar with delicious menu-of-the-day tapas. We’re one block from Opa, Barley Swine and Lick, and three blocks from Austin’s best new yoga studio, Sukha.

A quick walk brings you to Saxton Pub, Barlatta, Uchi and dozens of top-rated restaurants.

And, of course, downtown is just a 20-minute walk away.

The City of Austin limits occupancy to six unrelated adults.

Terrific location and great house!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd stay at this property and we loved it. The separate guesthouse is fantastic for privacy and giant deck out back is great. The house was super clean and really nice. Ultra convenient to everything and the neighborhood is a "real Austin" neighborhood, not a touristy feeling. Great all around!

So close to the best pool ever!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was fantastic!! Beautiful, super clean, great gift basket. And close to the best pool in the world! Literally, a 4 minute drive. And near the back entrance, so we parked right there. Turnkey was great and we loved our stay. Oh - and great deck and really cool tall showers. Coming back soon.

DO NOT rent through Turnkey Vacation Rentals!

  • 2 of 5

Rating Details:

The property manager was somewhat unhelpful.

The vacation rental was very clean.

I was more than happy with the location.

I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

1) the rental process at Turnkey Vacation Rentals is completely stupid: a) once the reservation is paid, they start asking a number of things, like scanning the passport, signing a rental agreement and finally calling them (!!!). when you call they asked three completely useless questions: are you over 25 (this can be derived from the passport scan, unless the Turnkey people can't read), are you a smoker (it is explicitly written in the signed rental agreement that the rental is non smoker), are you aware that no parties are allowed (again it is explicitly written in the signed rental agreement). 2) once the process is finished, they give you a code over the phone to unlock the door, and a couple hours later, you receive an email with a different code... 3) when you ask questions by mail, it takes at least two days for Turnkey to answer, when they answer. 4) once we found out which door code was the good one, we discovered that the BBQ was in a garage locked with a key. 5) after two days, Turnkey replied that the key for the garage was in a supply closet, which was locked with a second code. 6) after two more days, we finally got the code for the closet, got the key for the garage, got the BBQ, only to discover that the propane tank was completely empty. 7) we then had to buy a new propane tank. so again DO NOT rent through Turnkey Vacation Rentals, these guys are simply not serious.

Owner's Response: Hello Olivier, Thank you for taking the time to leave us this feedback. We’re so sorry you encountered problems with the BBQ and for not being able to reach us quickly for assistance. Please know we will follow-up to ensure BBQ access is easier for future guests. In regards to the security questions you were asked, these are created by pulling information that is available from public records. These are similar questions to what you would receive on a fraud alert or anything else trying to verify your identity. We use our ID verification process in order to protect both guests and homeowners from fraud. At times, our system will request additional information in order for us to proceed, which appears to have happened in your case. That being said, we understand that making several calls in order to secure your reservation can be very frustrating. We are constantly working to improve our processes and create a more pleasant booking experience for our guests, so your feedback is much appreciated and will be used to help identify areas for improvement. If there is anything else we can do for you, please reach out any time and let us know. -The TurnKey VR Team

Reviewer Comments:

We were very lucky to book this home less than a week before my daughters Graduation. The Zilker Barn we originally booked canceled on us less than a week out. It had plenty of room and a great kitchen to make meals. This home is a close Uber ride to anything you would want to do in Austin!

Perfect Austin house!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great! The house is beautiful, super clean and in an ultra-convenient location. We walked pretty much everywhere. Spacious house with a great outdoor deck and a hammock. Perfect for a large group. This is our go-to every time we are back in Austin.

Great place for a girls weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

Great spot! We were within walking distance from 1st street and south congress with plenty of local restaurants and a nail salon within a few hundred feet. Plenty of space for 9 girls. Less than a ten minute drive from Barton Springs pool. Everything was clean and would def come back to stay!
