Just finished total renovation!!! Two blocks from Lady Bird Lake/hike and bike trail, a short walk away from countless bars and restaurants including all of Rainey Street, Bufalina, La Barbecue, Cenote, Laundrette, Blue Owl Brewery, etc, and close to Metro rail stop on 4th St, metro bus lines, and bike rentals.
The home was completely gutted down to the studs -- so everything is new, safe materials. All new plumbing, electrical wires, and HVAC put in summer of 2016.
Entire home including a laundry room, full kitchen, tv (no cable), dining room, living room and 2 bedrooms. We can provide an air mattress too if 6 guests are staying with us.
[Interaction with guests]
We can interact as much or as little as you'd like. We can give you recommendations and directions, if you'd like. This is your vacation so we want you to be comfortable.
It's all about proximity to all of downtown. This east neighborhood has evolved during the years and is now the best place to hang out. All the coffee shops will entertain you in the morning, the breweries in the afternoon, and the restaurants and bars at night. Everything is walkable. And if you want to escape it all, the river or "lake" is only two blocks away. You can find kayak or paddle board rentals along the trail.
There are bike rentals, a metro rail stop, and countless bus lines all close by. Downtown, Zilker Park, University of Texas, and tons of restaurants & bars are easy to get to
