We'd love to have you enjoy Austin in one of Austin's coolest neighborhoods!!
The house was completely remodeled in 2009. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances and is fully stocked for cooking.
In Spring 2015, we did some cooking upgrades, including a new knife set, and redecorated throughout the home. We hope that you enjoy the new cookware we've provided in order to make your stay more comfortable.
The house has two bedrooms, one with a queen pillow-top bed and one with a king posturepedic bed - both exceptionally comfortable. Both bedrooms offer closet and drawer space for guest use. The living room couch pulls out into an additional queen-sized bed.
The bathroom has both a shower and a tub and the house is stocked with plenty of clean towels and linens. The house has wireless internet and over 100 channels of cable TV.
A front porch with two wicker chairs offers a great spot for relaxing and enjoying the Austin vibe, and the shaded table on the back porch is perfect for enjoying the private backyard.

The house is a 5-minute car ride to downtown Austin, Lady Bird Lake, Zilker Park and the Barton Springs Pool.

I stayed here last summer with my boyfriend and another couple. It was the perfect amount of space for the four of us! The kitchen had enough utensils and such for us to make breakfast before going out for the day. The living room was comfortable place for us to rest in between activities, and the bedrooms were each a good size with comfortable beds.
One of the best things about this lovely home is the location! We were able to walk to some bars and restaurants right from the house, which was a really nice convenience. It's only a few blocks away from all of the cool stuff we wanted to check out in the SoCo area, so that was a big plus. We rented a car while in Austin, so anything else we wanted to go to was really only a 5-10 minute drive away. It's a really great, cute neighborhood. Great house! A+!
