Austin House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6, Remodeled Craftsman Home in Central Austin

Please contact us before booking. All our rental homes are fully licensed [Austin license # 111861].

If you have a larger group, we have several different sized rental homes in the area, so we can always accommodate your group!

This gorgeous Craftsman home built was in 1933 but completely remodeled in 2012 from the ground up. Upon entering, you will find newly refinished hardwood flooring throughout. The home boasts a completely remodeled kitchen and bathroom with new stainless appliances, granite, and faucets & fixtures. The home is 850 sqft, but feels larger thanks to the open floor plan and additional sun porch.

The home has 2 queen beds, a queen pull out sofa in the living room, and a pack & play crib. We make all of our bedrooms cozy and comfortable with side tables, lamps, dressers for clothes, curtains and blinds for privacy. The living room has plenty of seating, a 47' flat screen TV, books/games/dvds, and is open to the dining room where the table expands and there is seating for 6. And the home only gets better when you enter the sun room - enjoy a good book or just sit and relax in privacy. Continue outside and grill some burgers, relax in the backyard, or just swing on the front porch. And the best part is this secluded retreat is just a short 8-10 minute walk to the train which will quickly take you downtown! The train drops you off in front of the convention center in about 18 minutes! *

AMENITIES: The home comes stocked with fresh linens & towels, soaps, a fully equipped kitchen, spices, etc... We provide all the things you might need in the kitchen including a coffee maker and grinder, toaster, blender, pots/pans, bake ware, and of course dishes, glasses, and utensils. There is a full size washer/dryer in the laundry area which is stocked with detergent, ironing board/iron, and household supplies. Guests may park in the driveway.

***All driving distances, distances to city transportation, mileage, and cab fares in listing are based on google maps information, CapMetro information, and/or past guest comments. Please visit CapMetro's website for updated train schedules and times to downtown***

About Amanda & Greg

We've lived in Austin since 1996 and love the city! Amanda has been a licensed Realtor in Austin for 12 years, and we personally manage all of our rental properties - both furnished and unfurnished. We love meeting our guests from all over the world and creating a wonderful and memorable visit for them in Austin. And when we're vacationing, we always enjoy staying in vacation rentals and bed & breakfasts as well!

Amanda & Greg purchased this house in 2012

Why Amanda & Greg chose Austin

Developers were getting ready to tear down this home, but we just couldn't see it go! We moved it to its new home (yes, we moved the entire house!), and then renovated it into this gorgeous vacation rental. The home is a 1930's Craftsman home updated to 2012 amenities! It's an easy walk to many restaurants but the home is still tucked away in a quiet neighborhood. The best part is the short 8 minute walk to the Crestview Lightrail Station which takes you downtown, as well as other places around Austin!

What makes this house unique

We have personally managed all of our rental properties for 10 years and take pride in each home we own. Our goal is to make sure every guest has a wonderful experience staying with us!

The City of Austin requires that Vacation rentals obtain a license for legal operation. Legal operations will have their license number in their listing.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The house is very nice.



The house conditions are perfect, it's very clean and well maintained, also it's very equiped with all the indispensable things. I haven't had any problem or inconvenience, I enjoyed my stay there. The neighborhood is too secure and perfect to have privacy.



Undoubtedly I will recommend this place to all my friends for future reservations.



Thanks for all the amenities and recommendations I felt like in home.

Clean and Cozy

Greg and Amanda are wonderful hosts and incredibly responsive. My family and I were needing a place to stay during our remodel and we were very comfortable staying in this beautifully remodeled home. They even went so far as to stock the house with creature comforts. The location is great too!

Good Find in Central Austin

  • 4 of 5
I recently stayed at this delightful house for the month of February. Of all the houses/condos I have rented over the years, I have never had a rental with a kitchen more completely furnished. All of the pots and pans were of excellent quality and there were many extras like spices, oil sugar, etc. This charming house, tucked behind another house, is quiet and safe with a very private back yard. A large grocery store is quite close and another smaller grocery store is within walking distance. On Burnet there are interesting second-hand shops. In the other direction, on the corner of Koenig and Lamar, a large bookstore called Half-Price Books has everything you need for reading, and right behind that store is a unique bike shop that only sells recumbent bikes and trikes. Want some good Texas barbeque. There is an excellent barbeque restaurant right down the street. Because the house is in Central Austin, it is quite close to everything. I was very impressed with how quickly the landlords responded to even the slightest request.

Great place to stay. Clean, comfortable, and safe!

The central location in Austin made going anywhere easy! The neighborhood felt safe, and the house felt like home. Everything we needed (except food, of course) was provided. We loved the house and wouldn't hesitate staying again.

Exactly as promised--wonderful

  • 5 of 5
I rented this house over the weekend of my wedding for a nice place to get ready before the Big Day. It was conveniently located to everything I needed in terms of food and errands. The house was in great condition--I wanted to live there! Allendale Rentals were totally responsive and courteous during the booking process. I would absolutely stay at this cottage again on a future trip to Austin.

Great Property, Great Price!

  • 5 of 5
The house was perfect! It is quite charming and was perfect for my husband, myself and our two young children. The renovations were lovely and the kitchen was gorgeous. We like to spend a lot of time outside and the backyard was perfect for that! There was something missing from the unit that we needed and Amanda was SOOO quick to respond and we had the item in our hands in literally ten minutes! It was great service! We will definitely stay again!

Also, it is a back house and I know sometimes that can feel not very private- that is not the case with this house. You have your own front porch and fenced in back yard- it feels very much like a stand alone house.
