Beautiful, Modern, and Peaceful!

My friend and I recently stayed at the Orange Door. What a beautiful spot. It is meticulously decorated (I took photos for ideas for my house) and it has everything you could ever need if you want to cook. We didn't cook while we were there so didn't get to test out the stove and the beautiful range hood. It is wonderful to have your own laundry room as well so you don't have to haul as many clothes with you. The location is perfect - just minutes to downtown and to several fun spots. The neighborhood is really nice and quiet and the neighbors are super friendly. Also, Dani is the consummate hostess. She quickly answered all the questions I had and gave great suggestions for places to eat and explore. I'd love to stay in the other places too. I highly recommend the Orange Door to anyone looking for a place to stay in Austin. You will not be disappointed!

Modern comfort in a beautiful neighborhood!

My girlfriends and I came from all over the country for a long weekend in Austin and I cannot imagine having stayed in a better place - the pictures do not do it justice! It's absolutely gorgeous and so comfy - we actually stayed in one night instead of going out because it was just so fun to be there! And any last minute thing we needed we found already stocked! Like nail polish remover, a corkscrew, plenty of dishes etc! A true home away from home, can't wait to rent again. Dani was so helpful from start to finish! I would recommend their properties to family and friends, and already have!

Stayed at The Yellow Door. Great place to come back to after adventuring in Austin

  • 5 of 5
Great location in proximity to SoCo... in my opinion, where every day should start in Austin. A decent walk or short bike ride to Jo's or Tom's for coffee/breakfast.
The rental is perfectly cozy and clean and love the mid-century modern feel. Plenty of room for 3 guys but could easily accommodate 2-3 couples.
The neighborhood was peaceful and quiet, a haven from the busy downtown area, though only a short taxi ride away.
If this place is available and you're heading to Austin, book it! We'll be back!

The Orange Door Property was well presented, well equipped, comfortable and good value for money. The property is set in a quiet residential area within easy walking distance of the South Congress area of Austin. Would definitely stay there if visiting Austin again.

LOVED our stay. GREAT location. Comfortable and wonderfully appointed

  • 5 of 5
We LOVED our visit, and this property exceeded our expectations. Great decor/design - well done, and we really appreciated the attention to all the small details (great pillows, high quality kitchen appliances, lots of closet space, etc). Great location, too: minutes from the SoCo neighborhood, and about 5-10 minute drive from downtown. Owners were very helpful with recommendations regarding local restaurants and activities. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this house to any friends that might visit Austin, and we look forward to another visit in the future! Thanks much!!!
