GREAT HOUSE/AWESOME LOCATION ~ WALK TO THE BEST FOOD, MUSIC, AND FUN IN AUSTIN

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:

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.

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.

Great Spot with everything in walking distance!

  • 5 of 5
We had a girls weekend and rented this house in August. It was perfect for what we were looking for - reasonable rates, in walking distance to restaurants, coffee shops, Amy's Ice Cream, live music and shopping (from cool boots and great jewelry to knitting supplies and souvenirs for family members. The kitchen was well equipped and we had everything we needed to make a great dinner and breakfast when we were not exploring the great dining options on South Congress. Beds were comfortable, everything was super clean and the location couldn't be beat! We were able to drive to Lake Austin for a Boat Trip and to the East Side for an amazing meal within 15 minutes - super convenient and avoided the hassle of downtown hotels. This would be a great place to stay for a UT game - easy access and the choice of being in the action or coming back to a nice yard with a firepit for relaxation. The owner was great to work with and provided lots of helpful options for dining and other outings for our group - thank you - we loved our dining experience at Qui and boating on Lake Austin.

Cute house with a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5
This super-cute, cozy house was an ideal crash pad for my visit to Austin. You can't beat the location on South Congress, with its many boutiques and restaurants—it's be perfect for SXSW and ACL, as well as for UT football. Good a/c; nice, modern, kitchen; comfortable bedrooms. I'll be back!
