Overview

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

This is a newly remodeled three bedroom one bath home. 2 queens and 2 twins.

This property is beautifully equipped and freshly remodeled three bedroom and one bath home. Enjoy the shaded patio and brand new kitchen! Five miles to downtown Austin, cheap rates! Great for families traveling with a pup because there's a wonderful fenced back yard. You're very close to Central Market, Yoga Yoga, Black Swan Yoga, hiking trails, and all only 5 miles from downtown Austin! Two of the bedrooms have queen beds, and then the third bedroom has two twins - so it's quite comfortable for 6 adults! We know there's only one bath and we with there were two but that's why the rates are cheap!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Fantastic house with everything you need. The big backyard and kitchen are well equipped for families with small children. We entertained local family members and had great time. Lauren was extremely helpful and kind. We will make this our home away from home when in town.

Strategic location for enjoying Austin

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed in this house for one month, and we were very comfortable. Kitchen is well equipped for all sorts of cooking, and bar-b-que grill outdoors. There is a sitting room with TV where our kids played. Airconditioning kept us comfy in the hot Texas summer.

I would add that the beds are very comfortable. Our kids slept in a room with two singles, and grandma visited for a week and slept in the third bedroom. One bathroom is a bit limited when there are three bedrooms, but you just make do and it is fine.

Neighborhood is very cute, and very safe. We enjoyed walking in the neighborhood. You can also walk to a cute coffee shop nearby on Manchaca.

Great location, there are a lot of good restaurants nearby. It is very close to Randalls (grocery store), Central Market (gourmet grocery), Target and only five minutes from Barton Creek Mall, a big shopping center. To get to UT, only 20 mins by car. To get to Bergstrom Airport, only 15 mins. Zilker Park is also just a short hop by car.

We found it a good location for commuting to UT during the day and also located near things to do on the weekend.

Vacation Cake kept was attentive to our needs and made sure that we were comfortable while staying here.

This property is in the Southwood neighborhood and while this is little bit south of downtown (5 miles), this house offers a great size for very fair price.
