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 cute 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 place 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 and 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, ACL-born Lucy's Fried Chicken, 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:

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

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.

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.

CHARMING HOME IN THE PERFECT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
Older home with lots of charm. Yard is a great size for the kids play in and for the adults to relax. Perfect location, super close to So-Co and great restraunts. We have already recommended this home to another family and we hope to be returning soon!

CUTE HOME, 10 MIN WALK TO SHOPS

  • 4 of 5
Overall, this was a really adorable house. 2 BR, 1 BA and outdoor patio. My girlfriends and I rented this house for a girls weekend getaway. The house is conveniently located off of South Congress, about a 10-minute walk to most of the shops/restaurants of South Congress. The property was definitely clean and well-maintained, and the owner had a nice little handbook providing dining suggestions and sights to see. The house had air-conditioning too which was really great especially since some days got into the 90s. I would recommend this house to others but then again, I might want to try to stay a little closer in next time as we took cabs most of the time.

GREAT PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
This is a really cute house in a great location, on a quiet street but you are walking distance from lots of cool stuff on South Congress. The place is tastefully decorated, and the owner has thought of lots of little things to make your stay comfortable. She is also very helpful with recommendations for places to eat, etc. We would definitely stay here again, thanks Leslie!

GREAT LOCATION FOR A STAY IN AUSTIN!

  • 4 of 5
This quaint home just off South Congress was a perfect place for our three day stay in Austin! Just around the corner from the great vibe of South Congress, we were within walking distance of plenty of action. Although we were directly across the street from a junior high, we weren't impacted at all.

The home was as advertised, nicely laid out, updated and with comfortable beds. The owner responded immediately when we let her know it was a little cold (~30 degrees in Austin during our stay). She brought over an extra blanket and a space heater.

Great place for a couple but could easily work for two couples since there are two bedrooms. You just have to share the one bathroom. The backyard horseshoes and fire ring didn't get used since it was so chilly but would be fun in the summer! Outstanding value for the price!

GREAT LOCATION & PRICE.

Great location & price.
  • 3 of 5
The location and price were outstanding. The home is small but the yard is big and has a fire pit. The cable tv was not working but a call to the homeowner and he fixed it the next day. You can walk to dinner and drinks anywhere on So. Congress. Good value for a cheap price.
