Austin Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condominium, 2 Bedrooms + Futon bed, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 4-5). No Hotel Taxes

Fantastic Location. Free parking, internet, cable TV, power and water. NO hotel taxes. The condo has a terrific layout. With balconies in both the front and back and on two levels and it is hard to get back inside. The open floor plan means that the cook does not have to miss any of the action going on in the living room and can see both the TV and the fireplace. But with the garden window in the kitchen and new granite kitchen counter tops, stainless range, and dishwasher it's not too bad even when you are having to do the chores.

It is perfect for the family visiting Austin with laundry room, and fully stocked kitchen. The smaller bedroom is a good size with two twin beds and room for an air mattress as well. The master bedroom is large and with the balcony right off the master, quite romantic. 30 day minimum rental.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • Low Allergen Environment
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered
  • unsuitable for elderly or infirm
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About James Leonard

Susan and I met at The University of Texas in the summer of 1974. We fell in love with each other and with Austin. We live in Houston but we plan to return when we retire.

James Leonard purchased this condo in 2006

Why James Leonard chose Austin

Condo has that great college feel. It is in the middle of the heart of Austin in more than one way. You can walk to SoCo visit the stores, shops and restaurants and feel the diversity of the different people and their lifestyles. But more than that the people of Austin are genuinely friendly.

Prompt and Professional

  • 5 of 5
We had a change of plans one day after receiving the rental contract, and notified Jim by phone to cancel. He was very understanding and professional in his response, and processed our refund that very day. He was very easy to deal with and we would recommend him to other travelers.

Great little gem on South Congress!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 5 days in mid-September for a family trip. It was a great experience!

PROS: Great, and I mean GREAT location in close proximity (ie walking) to a grocery store and pharmacy. Also a short bike, bus, or car ride to tons of fabulous restaurants and shops in the South Congress and/or Downtown area.

The apartment itself is in a secure, gated complex. The neighbors are friendly and the pool area was great to hang out in. The apartment is modestly decorated with all the necessary essentials. A blow up mattress was provided, which was a nice perk. I believe pets are available upon request, which was great for us. The owner is a pleasure to work with - very accommodating.

CONS: The complex needs to add in additional outdoor lighting as the parking lot is VERY dark at night.

I would definitely stay here again - highly recommended!

Condo was clean, comfortable, and in a great location!

  • 5 of 5
My band and I stayed here during the SXSW festival, and couldn't be more pleased. The condo was spotless, had everything we needed for our stay, and was in a prime spot one mile south of downtown. It is located right off Congress Ave., a few blocks from Magnolia's, tons of great shopping, and lots of great food. We also were able to walk to and from downtown for the festival (alternatively, only a $5 cab ride). The price we were offered couldn't be beat, and Jim, the renter, was very professional and easy to do business with. Highly recommend.
