Paula & Preston: Avid travelers ourselves, we enjoy sharing the best of Austin with great people from around the country and the world. We're proud of our city, and we're glad to impart what makes our town one of the best places to visit and live. We travel frequently to Central America and Europe and appreciate staying in private homes when we travel, so we're excited to share our home with you. We speak German and Spanish. We plan to honeymoon in Argentina---at a HomeAway home of course--and we're using the proceeds of our rentals towards our wedding.

Preston & Paula purchased this house in 2012

Walk to any type of attraction, from fine dining to funky food trailers, great music, spring-fed pools, hiking trails around the lake, and downtown. Easy walking or bus access to downtown. Park your own car in the covered carport and avoid searching for a free parking spot. Enjoy the tourist-friendly South Congress walking strip with its eclectic shops, art galleries, eateries, and music then stumble a few short blocks to relax in our peaceful home on a remarkably quiet street despite its central location. Enjoy the open space with friends and family preparing delicious meals to share in the vaulted, light-filled dining room or spacious deck. The home has two wings each with its own bathroom and access to outdoors for optimal privacy. The home sits in a historic neighborhood with friendly neighbors. Just north, along downtown, is Austin's famous Lady Bird Lake running trail. And the spring-fed Barton Springs Pool is must visit, located across from Zilker Park, the annual venue for the Austin City Limits Music Festival.

The master bedroom is in a separate wing from the other bedrooms for optimal privacy. It has French doors walking out to an attractive yard. The master bath has a walk-in shower with spa shower heads. The saltillo tiles are cool and inviting. The kitchen opens to the deck and entertaining space.

Clean, comfortable, spacious, unbeatable location

The title says it all. The house is modern and comfortable, in a quiet residential neighborhood from which you can literally walk to the main part of South Congress and South First in less than five minutes.
I had a great winter vacation here, where I could easily go out and have fun, but then retreat back to a cozy home rather than a sterile hotel room. I recommend it highly!

Beautiful quiet private yard. I was amazed at how quiet the home was and still within walking to everything downtown Austin and South Congress has to offer.

I would happily recommend this property to anyone.

This wonderful spot is just as described! Perfectly nestled in a great old neighborhood, large trees, great yard...and as promised fresh tomatoes, berries, lettuce, and more right out the back door and off the deck. No need for a car as everything you need is within walking distance. Numerous hot spot restaurants, old favorites and shopping. Very Clean homey inviting. Definitely recommending this one.
