Overview

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

2BR/1BA accommodates 4-6. There is a kayak and fire pit to enjoy.

You will love this location! Walk to Austin's favorite hot spots for food and entertainment. You'll be steps away from South Congress Avenue (SoCo). Within one block there is a great local bar with live music, a spa, a local favorite restaurant (open 24 hours), and a souvenir gift shop. In just a few minutes, you'll be shopping, eating, and keeping it weird! A 10-15 minute walk will get you downtown to see the bats fly. This house sleeps up to 6 guests in 2 bedrooms with an additional sofa bed. Cheerful and clean with a large fenced-in backyard, the house can accommodate children of all ages. Washer/dryer unit is included.

*Same day bookings are welcome...just contact us*

Modern furnishings and a sunny dining area offer guests a comfortable getaway. One bedroom offers a queen-size bed and the other has a full-size, both dressed in plush, quality linens. The sofa pulls out into another queen bed and there is an available twin size roll-a-way, too. Flat screen TVs, HBO and Showtime, plus wi-fi are provided for downtime in between trips to nearby live music venues and beer gardens.

The spacious yard is perfect for a game of frisbee, horseshoes, and relaxing by the fire pit. A large kayak is available to take to one of the many nearby lakes (at your own risk, of course).

The house is a short walk away from many Austin landmarks such as Stacy Pool, which is spring fed and open year round, CBoys music, Lucy's Fried Chicken (made famous at ACL), and The Continental Club, an Austin original for live, local music. The house is a great location for a relaxing vacation in Austin as well as being perfectly located for SXSW, ACL, and COTA events.

Here is a nice link to a schedule of fun activities and festivals in Austin:

About Leslie

We love this house and are happy to share it with locals and visitors alike who want to stay close to the Austin action. This is a perfect location for ACL, SXSW, FUN FUN FUN Fest, F-1, Longhorn Games or just a vacation spent in beautiful Austin, TX.

Leslie purchased this house in 1997

Why Leslie chose Austin

Leave the car parked and walk to enjoy local Austin culture. In less than 1 minute on foot you are on South Congress Avenue, a must see area for any traveler. The shopping, food trucks, patios, restaurants, bars, and live music venues are local favorites and are often featured on Food Network and the Travel Channel.

What makes this house unique

There is a food mart 2 doors down as well as a wine shop just a couple of blocks away. Also within walking distance is the Texas-original super market, H.E.B. Entertainment is all around and there is a spring fed city pool, 'Big Stacy', that is open year-round just 2 blocks from the front door. This location is great for families and friends looking to dive into Austin culture.

The "little purple house" as our kids called it is very nice, comfortable and very close to all attractions and downtown.
We arrived on Halloween night and Leslie was nice enough to leave candies for the kids which made their day!
The house has everything needed for a 5 day stay and plenty of grocery stores around.
We recommend it and would definitely rent it again if we come back to visit Austin.

Great Austin Experience in SoCo

  • of 5
I went to Austin for ACL with my boyfriend and another couple. We did not know much about the area but we quickly learned that we were in the best spot. SoCo is a 10 minute bike ride or 5-7 minute drive to downtown. I felt safe in the area and loved all the cute houses and nice shops/restaurants. The street where the house is on is quiet which we wanted but then you just have to walk a block and you're on the main rd with a convenient 7Eleven store. We also found a place we walked to (.4 miles away) called La Mexicana Bakery which is open 24 hours, go there for the breakfast tacos, they cost $1.50 each and are AMAZING. Overall I really loved this place, it was small but a great size for us 4 and I would stay here again!

Great location. House as described. Fun backyard with horseshoes. Leslie was great-- I forgot a pair of shoes down at the house and she shipped them to my home free of charge! Would book again.

It's at a great location, and the owner is very attentive and helpful. The house is clean and an all around great guest house. We had a wonderful time during our stay and this place made our stay even better. I would definitely rent this house again.

Incredible location; perfectly met our needs!

  • 5 of 5
When had a wonderful time at the purple house! The amenities were perfect; the beds were extremely comfortable and the the owners provided a lovely Austin Welcome packet which helped us to decide some of the wonderful activities to choose from. I've stayed in Austin before but this vacation stood out due to the INCREDIBLE LOCATION of the house! We were so close to all the wonderful activities Austin has to offer. I'd highly recommend this vacation rental and plan to return again in the future!

Adorable home, great location

  • 5 of 5
I had the pleasure of staying here for a 5 day stretch earlier this month. I highly recommend the property for a small family or gathering of friends. It's well-maintained, well-decorated and offers a very nice alternative to a cold, impersonal hotel room. The washer/dryer unit makes it easy to pack less. The kitchen offers all one needs for daily meals. The two bedrooms are spacious and quiet. The walk to South Congress is easy and quick so the accessibility of shopping and dining is very nice. Not sure what a previous reviewer was referring to about the need for a taxi. Would definitely stay here again.
