Austin House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This South Austin cottage, built in 1914, was lovingly remodeled last year. Hardwood floors, tiled bath, and sweet architectural charm and character make this cottage feel like home. It is nestled under towering live oaks and pecan trees in a park-like setting. Sit on the rocking chair on the shady front porch, or lay in the grass looking at the sunlight filtering through the 100 year old trees.

You would never know you are just 2 miles from the best that Austin has to offer. The nightlife and shopping of downtown are just a quick bike ride or drive away. Enjoy the restaurants and unique stores of South Congress – Vespaio, Enoteca, Guero’s, Perla, Uncommon Objects and the Continental Club. Walk to the South Austin Tennis Center, or hop on a bike and you’ll be dipping in Barton Springs in ten minutes.

The Austin City Limits Festival in Zilker Park is just 2.2 miles away. SXSW venues downtown can be reached by an 8 dollar cab ride.

We’ve created a cozy home away from home, with luxurious linens and a comfy high-quality bed. You’ll have everything you need for a comfortable stay: complete kitchen, spotless bathroom, wireless internet.

This house is beautifully situated in the heart of Austin, one of the most unique cities in America.

Perfect for visiting Austin!

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was a perfect place for my trip to Austin. I stayed for nine days and it was wonderful to have such a place to call home! It's location is ideal: small, safe, neighborhood with beautiful trees very close to downtown, Zilker Park, and the Botanical Gardens. It was also very convenient to be just off of the freeway which made it easy for me to get to destinations further away, especially as I am not very familiar with the area. I especially enjoyed having a kitchen that I could cook in, we had family visit one evening for dinner. It was a treat to be able to spend time with one another in that setting while on vacation. Three women in the kitchen? Plenty of room! The necessary cooking supplies were also available so we didn't have to go out and buy it all. The owners are so nice! They were very helpful in suggesting places to visit during my stay as well as loaning a power cord for my computer which I had left at home! Very friendly people, extending their knowledge of Austin and being fantastic hosts while being respectful of our space and privacy. I would definitely recommend their cottage to friends or family (in fact I already have).

Excellent F1 Rental

  • 5 of 5
My brother and I stayed here for the 2012 F1 race.
I found the futon quite comfortable and my brother had no complaints about the bed.
The shower was warm with excellent water pressure.
There's a nice coffee house (Summermoon) just a short walk away as well as Torchy's tacos.
But, it is very well located for access to the SOCO restaurants as well as downtown - the #10 bus is a short walk away.
And, if you rent bikes (we rented electric bikes), it's a straight shot to the bike parking for the race and there's a McDonald's at the half-way point. So, you can have a big, cheap breakfast and avoid paying the high prices and standing in long lines at the track. Our door to track gate time was under 1.5 hours - including breakfast.

The owners are extremely nice and easy to work with and I found the six pack of beer in the fridge a nice touch. I'll definitely be looking to stay here again.

Amazing Find!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was perfect for my husband and I for a quick get-a-way weekend! We had never been to Austin before and this cottage is just minuets away from everything you would possibly want to do! The owners are very personable and make the stay that much more enjoyable! If you visit, stop by and meet them! They are amazing just like the little cottage! I highly recommend this location to friends and everyone wanting to visit Austin! We will be back in the future and are looking forward to the next time we visit!

Pleasant home, very conveniently located

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and our two children---5 years and 2-1/2 years---enjoyed a very nice weeklong stay in this cottage in June 2010. The owners are friendly and very easy to work with: they communicated quickly and accurately, and they returned our deposit promptly after our stay. The cottage is very clean and has lots of light. There are new and quiet window AC units in bedroom, living/dining, and kitchen that kept the temperature very comfortable even when it was 94 degrees outside. The kitchen is spacious and has a good stove, refrigerator, counter space, and cooking and eating utensils. We also appreciated the six-pack of Texas beer that the owners had waiting in the refrigerator for us when we arrived! The bathroom is also spacious and has new and clean fixtures. The living/dining room has a nice futon, coffee table, and chairs, and there was plenty of room for us to put a queen-size air mattress on the floor at night (where our kids slept) and still be able to move around comfortably. We also enjoyed the speedy wireless Internet connection. This was a great "home base" for us as we visited family in friends in Austin.

PERFECT WEEKEND!

  • 5 of 5
My cousin and our young girls stayed here one weekend. We fell in love with the property AND the owners. Never have I felt so at home and welcome. We had everything we needed, close to all cool things Austin, and made new friends in the owners. It was so nice to hang out with my cousin while the girls climbed the fig tree in the yard. We all felt at home.

I will be back again and again. Could NOT have asked for a better place to stay while visiting Austin.
Really.

Cozy comfortable place for a long weekend

  • 5 of 5
This was our first experience with vrbo and we will do it again. We inquired about renting the cottage at the last minute and the owner was extremely responsive and helpful. The first thing you notice is the beautiful Live Oak that shades the cottage. It is true that this cottage feels as though it is out in the country. It was extremely well maintained and clean. The bed was comfortable. The neighborhood was quiet and we felt safe taking a walk late at night. The kitchen is simple and yet we found everything that we needed was provided. When I read cottage, I was afraid it might be tiny. This is not the case. There is plenty of room including closet space and a dresser so we could truly unpack and be comfortable. We would definitely recommend this to a friend or relative.
