Our vintage home is a lovely place to base your Austin vacation. It's 100% Austin, cozy and comfy for large groups, yet spacious enough to not feel crowded. Just a short walk from SoCo and Rainey Street, we're right where you'll want to be.
This Craftsman Bungalow built in 1914 has an huge comfortable southern style front porch with plenty of seating, a porch swing and tables. It's a rare gem, one of a few houses in Austin located on the south side of Lady Bird Lake overlooking downtown. The house has 4 bedrooms: two with full beds, one with a queen bed, and one with two twin beds With use of an optional air mattress, our house provides space enough for 10 people to sleep comfortably. Please note that per city regulations, no more than six (6) unrelated adults may reside in the house. Two full bathrooms and two separate common spaces (one upstairs, one down) and good spacing make sharing this home easy for a group, and a well stocked kitchen makes cooking a breeze. Behind the kitchen in the back of the house is a small private outdoor patio with a grill and seating area.
The location is fantastic: Travis Heights is the closest residential neighborhood to downtown, and a short walk or a $5 cab ride to the shops and restaurants of South Congress or 6th Street nightlife. You can pick up the 10-mile Lady Bird Lake Hike and Bike Trail just to the east and west of the house and walk, bike or run to Zilker Park and Barton Springs. We are just a few blocks west of IH35 and only a 10 minute ride to the airport. Some houses are all about location, and some are all about awesome. Our house is all about both, great house, awesome location.
A block east of us a is a dog park, so if you like dogs you're in the right place. We've got wifi and cable and two big screens to enjoy them on. Parking here is good and you'll be free to use the driveway. Just a 3 minute walk from the house you'll find a bus stop serving several central routes through Austin.
