Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 6

You'd be hard-pressed to find a space in East Austin more modern than The Aust-E! And that’s saying something in this part of town, where new, interesting places pop up weekly. Whether going out or staying in, this one-of-a-kind, contemporary rental will introduce your group to the best of East Austin.

INSIDE THE HOUSE

A large, open-concept living/dining/kitchen combo greets you at the door. This area is built for gathering with your group, but when you want privacy, it’s easy to retreat to the comfort of your bedroom (this home has 3 of them).

In the living area, the large 55" flat-screen television extends up to 3 feet from the wall, to either face the living room or the dining table – you pick.

In the kitchen, you’ll find a brand-new 4-top range with oven, a beautiful fridge, cabinets stocked with dishes and cookware, and an island with plenty of workspace.

Upstairs, a second common area awaits you. Boredom is impossible up here: a couch, 42" HD television, cable, WiFi, board games, and access to the balcony and/or laundry room are all included. Wind down for the night, watch your favorite show, or get some work done at the second built-in desk.

The master bedroom is a masterpiece. It has a king bed, large dresser, walk-in closet, mp3 player, its own attached bath, and a door to the balcony. Did we mention the 36" HD TV and cable?

The rest of your group might be jealous, but not TOO jealous, because bedrooms 2 and 3 are also a treat: each has its own 36" flat screen television, closet and dresser, cable TV, mp3 player and bedside lamps. Bedroom 2 has a queen bed, and bedroom 3 and double. And though these rooms don’t have attached baths, the shared bath is just a few steps away.

The upstairs balcony is a great place to hang out and enjoy your digs. Sit at the bistro table overlooking the treetops! Or take advantage of the lovely patio seating and benches outside in the fully fenced outdoor area. Take a book and sit in the shade of the trees. Just add some food from the grill, and your Austin backyard cookout is complete!

Your dog is invited to join the party, too (fees apply).

OUR LOCATION

Walk to downtown (15 minutes), The Austin Convention Center (20 minutes), Huston Tillotson University (10 minutes), UT Stadium (45 minutes). Don't feel like walking? Take the Austin Metro Rail across the city in no time - only 3 blocks away. Rent a bike from Austin Petal Pushers, only 5 blocks away! Of course, taxis are readily available, too.

Foodies, try Qui, Uncorked, Takoba, Supper Friends, Blue Dahlia Bistro, Frankin Barbecue (open everyday until they run out) or one of the many other restaurants opening almost weekly!

Reviewer Comments:

The vacation rental was clean and well appointed and we enjoyed our stay overall. It was conveniently located. Our travel consisted of 6 women and although the description said there were beds for 6, the 3rd bed was tiny and not meant to share so one of my friends slept on the couch the entire visit. We also felt unsafe coming in at night. There was a gate with a lock that you had to open before entering the property. Once we were locked inside, it was great however coming in at midnight didn't feel safe. Also, a full length mirror would be very helpful upstairs. At the end of our visit one of the ladies tripped on the glass coffee table upstairs, she was left with a significant bruise but fortunately was not hurt any further and the table was not damaged. I think this is a great bachelor's pad though.

Stylish home close to downtown

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a great time at this property. The three bedrooms were great for the 5 of us, and with a bit of easy scheduling we made the two bathrooms work as well. The downstairs is very roomy and we spent most of our non-sleeping time in the house down there. The (large) wall-mounted TV extends out of the wall for easier viewing.

The location of the home is great, only a 15min bus ride or 30min walk to downtown Austin. We spent most of our nights on Rainey Street, and on a few occasions took a $10 Uber/Lyft back instead of walking/bussing.

We wish there had been more kitchen amenities (e.g. had to buy sugar), and while the upstairs stayed pretty warm, the downstairs was continually colder and we could not figure out how to warm it up. The neighborhood is fairly quiet but not ideal for taking a stroll--almost every house has a dog and none of them seem to like strangers, and there is a distinct lack of sidewalks on some streets. There is a grocery store ~7min walk away; nearest coffee shop is closer to 12min; E. Caesar Chavez street as a *ton* of restaurants, and the group really enjoyed "Juan in a Million" which is ~5min walk away.

Overall we had a very good time at the house and would recommend it.

Reviewer Comments:

A group of high school buddies and I hadn't been together as a group for about 20 years. We converged on Austin as a central location and stayed in the house. During the days we were out and about, but the house was so comfortable and well laid out that evenings were spend hanging out and catching up versus out at the bars. Everyone had their own space for sleeping. It was just a great comfortable place to come home to after a day at NLAND surf park or at the Circuit of the Americas. The area really comes to life at night on Caesar Chavez street but the house is far enough away that the activity doesn't disturb you. Walkable to groceries, liquor stores, bars, restaurants and food truck parks.

Couldn't have been much happier. This reservation was for a business trip to Austin, and it checked all of our boxes. Really well connected and close to Downtown, super modern, great hosts. We felt really well taken care off!
