About Alan

My name is Alan and I am a true Austinite. Artist, photographer and of course a musician, (classical violin and guitar) I attended parochial school here in Austin, Then moved on to the School of my Grandfather,and Father. The University of Texas here in Austin Tx.

Alan purchased this house in 1950

Why Alan chose Austin

A family owned property from one of Austins first settling families.

You can't get any closer to the middle of it all. Any and all convention or music. Next to down town. Next to ACL fest. Next to Auditorium Shores. Next to Town Lake(Lady Bird Lake). Next to the Long Center, the Palmer Center, Zilker park, Congress Ave. That is all less than a mile away. Sixth ST, the Capitol, the Convention Center, the Warehouse district, Whole Foods (HQ and store) The list goes on and on, and all just one mile away.

What makes this house unique

The property backs up to the Green belt with hiking trails and a dry (sometimes wet) creek, . Less than a mile and walk-able to an abundance of restaurants all with outdoor patios and some with live music. The famous Saxon Pub is just a mile away with great live music every single night ( Always a good place to spot celebrities ). The world famous Continental Club also a mile away. But wait! There's more. The mother ship of over priced veggies, Whole Foods is only one mile away.

A Great House for Enjoying Austin

  • 5 of 5
For a week-long stay this was way better than a hotel room. We were able to enjoy several evening meals by walking to nearby restaurants. Black's Barbecue was great, and we enjoyed a hamburger place called Sandy's. Threadgill's World Headquarters had some great home-style food in an enjoyable atmosphere. We hope to stay again at this house for a future fun trip to Austin.

Out of ordinary

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in this cozy and beautiful house on a recent work trip.

I like Alan’s prompt response to my query and his professionalism.

It was my first visit to Austin and I had no idea of the town. But, owner’s preparation made my stay very comfortable. The house had street maps, outside security cameras, a list of event’s coming up in recent weeks, a list of things to do in Austin, washing machine, dryer, fully equipped kitchen with a coffee machine and Wifi to connect my laptop to. The owner went the extra mile by showing me around the town.

The most compelling thing for me was the location. The house is located very close to Downtown and bus stops for people like me who didn’t wanted to drive in a new country. A short cab ride took me to downtown and other restaurants.

I will be definitely staying in his house again.

Wow

  • 5 of 5
This home was every bit as advertised, but more. We walked almost everywhere that we wanted to see while in Austin. The home itself was wonderful, with everything you would expect in your own home. Very clean, WIFI, cable tv with movie channels. A computer with printer and plenty of maps and guides to Austin.
Great rate and location location location

Excellent value for money, comfortable and clean.

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in this vacation rental for 9 days last Spring and I found it very clean and comfortable. The owner prepared my arrival very well, providing information and support anytime before and during my stay.
The location is great too. The house is in a residential area, very calm and pleasant, but not far from downtown, which is ideal for me.

The house has 2 bedrooms and a large living area. There is plenty of parking space (private) so the car does not have to stay on the street.

The price I paid for the stay was definitely worth it. I'll certainly book this vacation rental again for my future trips in Austin and can only recommend anybody visiting the city to do the same.

Great House for Austin City Limits Festival

  • 5 of 5
We thought this house was great for our stay during the Austin City Limits festival. The walk to the festival was reasonable and it was far enough removed that we didn't have to deal with crazy traffic.

The lot beside the house is used for parking during the festival, but we didn't have any issues and the owner was very respectful, making sure we weren't impacted by the parking traffic.

He has a computer set up in the house with internet access and a printer, which we really appreciated. It was nice to not have to drag out our laptops while we were there for little things we wanted to look up on a computer rather than our phones.

To top it all off, Alan was super responsive when we were trying to book. I emailed him pretty late at night Texas time, maybe 11pm, and he got back to us within an hour (maybe it was even sooner).

We will definitely try to stay here again the next time we are in Austin.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
Three of us landed in Austin late on a Wednesday afternoon with no accommodation booked. 90 minutes later we were settled in at this cosy house. A quick walk to Whole Foods (which should be a must for any visitor) and we had a three course meal on the table in no time.

Located in a leafy neighbourhood just minutes from Zilker, SoCo and downtown, this house has every amenity required for a short or long stay. You won't do better than this.

Alan was super to deal with and we could not have been made more welcome. And as if that weren't enough, his family even drove us to the airport for our departure flight. You can't beat that for Texan hospitality!

Bouldin Creek, located on the other side of the lake from downtown Austin. The historic nature of the neighborhood and eccentricity of its residents mean it will always be a little bit different. For those who doubt the 'weirdness' of South Austin, look no further.

Our home is on 3/4 of an acre surrounded by live oak trees, with two side wooded areas. The neighbors are a few lots over from the house, they will not be right next to you.the house is also up from the street.
