THE BEST OF AUST-E, WALK TO DOWNTOWN, CONVENTION CENTER, UT STADIUM, RAINEY ST +

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

Serene 2 bedroom 1 bath, with a great city view in our fastest growing area.

Welcome to Hilltop Hideaway, your place to getaway before, after or between big days/nights in our fair city.

From the moment you walk up the steps of your large front porch and get a nice look at the lovely blend of your neighbors' friendly homes and the towering silhouettes of the surrounding buildings, you get a sense of the comfort of being home.

If it's raining out, or on days when you feel like staying in, take advantage of your cable network on the 36-inch HD television or your in-house movie selection. If you're not in the movie mood, try out your playstation with games included. Or, play a game of cards with the gang. The choice is yours, because it's all here.

Your lovely master bedroom is a perfect place for both rest and/or work alike. With a large comfy king bed, it's perfect for sleeping in before a long day or cozying up after a long afternoon. Your full-size, stand-alone mirror/cabinet is perfect for prepping yourself to arrive in style at your important events. And last, your desk is there because not everyday is play day.

Your second bedroom is equally comfortable, equipped with two twin beds. And (like the master bedroom as well), it has a dock for playing your media with built-in alarm clock. Of course, you have your own closet and chest of drawers, and plenty of pillows. The only thing missing is you.

Your kitchen is stocked with nearly everything you'll need to prepare a lovely meal. Beginning with your gas stove and oven, pots, pans, cooking utensils and serving dishes, and spilling over to plates, knives forks and even paper towels, you won't need much else for preparing dinner. And, for morning pick-me-ups, or general use, your blender, toaster, spices, coffee grinder, coffee maker and local coffee bean are on standby as well. Your quaint circular dining table is also nearby, where you can choose to dine together, or spread out and 'watch the big game' instead.

Your ambient restroom with frosted glass (giving you both privacy and sunshine) is a shower/bath combo, to meet your needs and desires. With lots of room to spread out your things, a large mirror and cabinet space, this restroom leaves almost nothing to chance. To reinforce that, an assortment of towels, tissues, make-up pads and soaps are there for you to use.

Lastly, come relax on the deck out back. Your grill, picnic table, and comfortable seating are there to be taken advantage of.

When you're not enjoying your time at Hilltop, we hope you're enjoying our city. There's additional information on your table here, to get you started.

The home was very cute...cozy, clean and convenient. All ammenities were provided and we were less than 3 minutes from DT. The surrounding area had lots of restaurants, cafes and more to chose from. Excellent for UT games, ACL and more.

Great Home, Great Area Vibe!

We had a great weekend stay at Hilltop Hideaway. Looked and felt just like in the photos (except without the food and the dress lol)! Very comfortable beds, plenty of outdoor space, and the local coffee that they kept there was a nice touch!

We were skeptical at first, because my son checked the area on google maps and we saw nothing but construction (very outdated). But, the neighborhood was great, and very quiet. Looked like two more large houses were being added, and it was awesome to see this all happening while we were there. It really was full of great energy.

The management had a nice booklet sitting on the table, which pretty much gave us the scoop on the area, so we were able to plan our day very easily and knew where to get pizza & breakfast(etc). Definitely do take their advice, and experience the local scene. It really gave us a feel for Austin. Will definitely be back!!

See why USA Today mentioned Aus-E as one of the '10 Best Neighborhoods Tourists Haven't Found Yet' & New York Times refers to us as '...the city’s newly fashionable arts district...'

Come witness life taking place as each coming day introduces a brand new Austin flavor - new businesses, brand new faces and people of all cultures and walks of life. Though you're in the middle of the city you might not know it, as your neighbors pass quietly and/or give you a friendly Texas 'hello'. Still, through the treetops you can see the changing face of Austin and its cascading buildings of downtown.

Walk to downtown (15 minutes), The Austin Convention Center (20 minutes), Huston Tillotson University (5 minutes), UT Stadium (30 minutes).

Don't feel like walking? Take the Austin Metro Rail across the city in no time - only 0.7 miles out. Rent a bike from Austin Petal Pushers, only 5 blocks away! Of course, taxi cabs are readily available, too.

With night clubs like Whitehorse, The Eastern, Yellow Jacket Social Club, Plush, Esquina Tango, Supper Friends and more, downtown nightlife has easily crossed over to enhance the Austin experience.

Foodies, try Qui, Uncorked, Takoba, Supper Friends, WuWu Sushi, Blue Dahlia Bistro, Frankin Barbecue (open until they run out, everyday) or one of the many other restaurants opening on a virtual weekly basis.

- Huston Tilotson University - 0.3 miles

- Downtown (7th & Red River street) 1.4 miles

- Austin Convention Center 1.6 miles (20-25 minute walk)

- Zilker Park 3.5 miles

- 12.7 easy miles to Circuit of The America's Track

Having sprouted from land that was originally purchased by newly freed slaves during the turn of the 20th century, this rapidly growing east side will give you a great cultural vantage point, to witness first-hand the growth of a proud city whose numbers have increased in excess of 30,000 in a single year. With houses of all shapes and sizes happily co-existing right next to one another, diverse neighborhoods, and people from all walks of life, this home is a true taste of Austin culture. Come experience Austin's growth from a part of town where something new happens everyday, and the rise of a new local business marks the birth of a brand new dream.
