Awesome Austin Living
We (family of 5) used to live in Austin and we returned during the kid's April vacation week. This house, location and owners are awesome and made it so easy to instantly slip right in to the comforts and pleasures of being in Austin. Yeah, warning, we are biased and love Austin!!!
The house is very comfortable. We loved the open plan of the first floor. The kitchen is well equipped and had everything we needed. The second floor bedrooms were terrific for us. Beds made sleeping easy -- we have the same beds and mattresses. Closet space and bathrooms were very good. Cozy towels!! And it was terrific to have the washer and dryer on the second floor!!
The backyard is relaxing with a hammock, cool table for outdoor dining (and there is a grill). The front yard -- with a privacy wall -- is also very relaxing. My wife enjoyed having her morning coffee or an end of the day glass of wine there.
The location is terrific and the neighborhood is residential and quiet. The house is close to downtown, UT, South Congress, Zilker, Pease and other parks, Barton Springs, Town Lake, great shops, restaurants (our faves include Ranch 616, P.Terry's, Tacodeli, Julio's, ZTejas, Vespaio, Enoteca among others), Central Market, etc. And there is easy access to suburbia if you want to head that way. Caswell public tennis is very close and has a great drop-in tennis workout during the week -- all good, but ask for Mike :-)
Cycling is terrific as well. I raced in Austin and there is great cycling for all levels. Lots of great shops and rides nearby -- many leaving from various shops on either Saturday or Sunday mornings.
We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Plenty of space for us, great house, great location, great owners, great stuff nearby. We're glad we found this rental.
