THE HOUSE OF ROCK! - 4/2 IN 78704 NEAR SOCO!

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps up to 8

The House of Rock is a new addition to the VacationCake family of Austin rentals and we are exited about it because it offers impeccable location and a bit more breathing room for families to spread out. With a king bed, two full size beds, and two twin beds, we feel this offers groups of various sizes and make-up a nice array of sleeping options.

We actually in the process of furnishing out the 4th bedroom to increase capacity at this property a little bit!

This property is located very close to downtown Austin, about 2 miles. Zilker Park is about a mile away and you are within walking distance to several of Austin's favorite restaurants in the Bouldin Creek/SoCo area!

When you're ready to hit the town again, you're only minutes away from Downtown, UT, Barton Springs,The Greenbelt, SoCo and more.

Perfect house in the perfect city.

  • 5 of 5
This house went along perfect with the wonderful city it is located in. It was minutes from the downtown area and cabs would pick us up in 10 mins. The back yard area was great, and the rooms slept 8 people perfectly. We will be back. Thanks a lot guys.

Great place for a large group

  • 4 of 5
The good:
The house is beautiful and spacious
The kitchen is very well stocked
The neighborhood is close to everything and yet quiet
Nice back yard - the kids enjoyed it!
SoCo 5 minutes by car, Barton Springs less than 10
Lots of great restaurants nearby
Washing machine and dryer!

The Bad:
The second AC unit (in master's bedroom) leaked and stopped working on the last day of our stay
The bathtub/shower combo in the master's bathroom leaked throughout our stay (even after a plumber came to fix it) and we could never use it

Lauren is great and answers messages immediately. She's always ready to help. I would stay here again but hope the problems in the new addition (bedroom's AC and bathroom's tub) are addressed.

Perfect Weekend Getaway Home, Great Location

  • 5 of 5
We will certainly be using this rental company again for our future visits to Austin. From drafting the agreement letter, to the condition of the home, it's layout, accommodations and cleanliness, everything was perfect from the start. I look forward to choosing this rental company in the future and working with them on another memorable visit to Austin.

Better than expected

  • 5 of 5
I rented out house of rock for a girls weekend/bachelorette party. The pictures don't do the house justice. It's amazing. Beds are comfortable. Plenty of space. The chess set outside is so much fun!!! We had a blast. I would definitely recommend this property. It was easy to find and not far from our destinations. The neighborhood is nice and everything you need is provided. My friends and I really enjoyed our stay here and are looking forward to using the same property again for another trip. I was not disappointed at all.

Nice, but not quite walkable

  • 4 of 5
This property is generally quite good.
Pros:
* Nice concrete floors; easy to clean and silent
* Ceiling fans throughout (central A/C too)
* Spacious parking
* Nice shaded backyard with chess set, BBQ, patio furniture
* Lots of dishes and silverware provided, including plastic ones; perfect for kids
* Responsive property managers

Cons:
* Soundproofing between rooms could be better.
* Ugly water leakage in ceiling of master bedroom bath
* Thermostats are programmable, so if you make a temperature change, it'll be automatically overridden in a few hours
* Close to 1st and to South Congress, but no sidewalks in neighborhood and not quite walkable -- you'll do better if you have a car
* Hot water temperature is set extremely high, posing a danger for small children who may turn on only the hot tap

Owner's Response: Yes, there was a roof leak in a huge storm about a week before your stay. We had the roof functionally repaired before you arrived but had to wait for the sheetrock to dry completely before we could do the cosmetic repair. It'll be complete this week. (mid-March 2013).

Thank you so much for letting us know about the water temperature. I'll have my maintenance guy turn it down while he's there for the ceiling repair.

So glad you enjoyed your stay -- come on back anytime!

This home is ideally located in the Zilker/Barton Hills neighborhood close to everything you've come to Austin to see, eat, hear or do. Delicious Tex-Mex food is 2 blocks away at Maria's Taco Express or Matt's Famous El Rancho. The age-old vegetarian vs. barbecue debate can be hashed out at Mr. Natural's & Art's Rib House which are both about 4 blocks away. Would your Texas vacation be completed with a visit to the last great Texas honky-tonk? Put on your boots & head over to The Broken Spoke, about a 1/2 mile from the house. Ready for a dip in Barton Springs? It's only 1.5 miles from the house -- you can bike there and to the Hike & Bike Trail. Downtown is 2.0 miles away & a city bus line runs down Lamar 2 blocks from your front door.
