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

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

You can't get any closer to the middle of it all. Next to down town. Next to ACL fest. Next to Auditorium Shores, Town Lake(Lady Bird Lake), 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), all just over one mile away.

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.

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!

GREAT PLACE AND MINUTES TO DOWNTOWN AND SO. CONGRESS

  • 5 of 5
This was our first experience with a renting a vacation home. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood .
We walked to Congress Ave. to see the bats emerge at dusk. The walk was about 15 mins /5 minutes or less if driving. Great communication with the owner, our plans changed and we were able to arrive one day earlier than scheduled. The pictures are accurate , the home is comfortable and clean,the kitchen is well equipped . Our family of four really enjoyed our stay. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Austin. Thank you for our first experience and everything being as described.

GREAT HOUSE! GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
Was a great house in a great location! We stayed for three nights and four days. The weather was pretty rainy when we first got there, but we didn't let that hold us back - there were three umbrellas for our use!

Again, the location was amazing. It's on a nice, quiet street, but not far from the action at all. We were able to walk everywhere. South Congress St., South Congress St. Bridge, 6th St., Lady Bird Lake, etc. There are plenty restaurants within walking distance as well.

Everything was provided to include linens and towels. I would definitely recommend this to a friend and would absolutely stay again. Thanks!

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.
