LAP OF LUXURY CENTRAL AUSTIN GEM

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedrooms, 6 Bathrooms, 3 Story House With Pool And Hot Tub

If you are looking to stay in one of the classiest homes in Central Austin, this is your best bet. This is a 4,000 square foot home with 3 stories and cool outdoor patios. It is stocked full of all of the luxury-style amenities you can dream of. The kitchen is decked out with top of the line appliances, the rooms boast tons of natural light and super comfy beds, and the house is beautiful and spacious. The basement apartment is a refuge from the main house and can be a nice space for some privacy. The backyard has a beautiful pool with an infinity hot tub attached to the pool so you can cool off and then get hot, cool off, get hot, repeat, etc. This amazing home is tucked away on a quiet street and has a sweet swanky modern look.

The house is located near the corner of Peach Tree and Bluebonnet in the heart of the 78704 district which is known as the coolest neighborhood in Austin. It's creative and serene, but just a quick walk or bike ride away from everything that Austin has to offer - Barton Springs, restaurant row on Barton Springs Blvd., the thriving South Lamar district and tons of great eats, cafes and boutiques. In about a 5 minute car ride, you can be right in the heart of downtown. It is a quick walk to Town Lake for biking and jogging, and we're right next door to several bus stops that can take you to wherever you want to go in other areas of Austin.

This is NOT a party house. We do not allow bachelor parties here. We are tucked away in a quiet neighborhood and we are not able to accommodate groups whose main intention is to have loud celebrations. We prefer family groups or groups of friends or colleagues who are coming to Austin and plan to enjoy our city responsibly and enjoy our house respectfully and calmly.

My name is Moya Khabele. I went to UT here in Austin and eventually ended up starting a school. I have been in Austin for over 20 years and I love the city. I have also traveled all over the world, traveling is quite a hobby for me. I have been to pretty much every continent and seen all of the most beautiful cities in the world. And yet, Austin is still my favorite! Austin has just the right mix of small town feel with urban sensibility. It's known as the oasis of Texas because it's full of creative folks, artists, amazing live music, festivals, and cultural events.

Moya Khabele purchased this house in 2008

After living in Austin for 20 years and living in literally every Central Austin neighborhood inside and around the city, 78704 is by far the best area of Austin. I love it because it's calm and serene, full of creative and nice people, and yet just minutes to the city center. So you can get a break from the hustle and bustle, but at the same time be super close when you want to go get great food, check out live music, etc. This property is quite special for the area because it's a brand new remodel and has all of the amenities and high end finish out you could imagine. So you get to stay in one of the hip and laid back areas of Austin, but immerse yourself in the lap of luxury in this beautiful home. For us also we love the pool and hot tub. A pool is a must in the summer time in Austin and at night you can relax in the hot tub. Perfect!

This house also has a sweet basement apartment, which is almost unheard of in Texas. The basement is a great refuge from the rest of the house and gives folks a chance to have some privacy and peace and quiet. There's also a big screen TV, so the boys can head down there for football or the kids can head down for kid movie night while the adults stay upstairs. We also have a sweet patio overlooking the pool.

Great stay in a very large, comfortable place!

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of 6 business professionnals and spent a week at Moya's place.
The house is very big, with no shortage of room and privacy.
All the equipments worked really well, and the property is only 10 mn stay from downtown.
Moya has been very flexible and easy to contact with - definitely worth coming back!

The perfect stay in Austin!

  • 5 of 5
We got there around 8pm Friday night. Me and my buddies had our own room. The car was parked in the garage. The lawn was perfect. When we walked inside we were amazed how clean neat and in place things we're....washer and dryer iron and board. The place is huge and very nice. Didn't have problem with anything. The beds were clean and comfortable and the closets were large enough to stay for a year. Sunday we watched a little NFL tv and wireless internet worked great! We didn't get the chance to go the jacuzzi and pool outside because it was usually cold that weekend. I would recommend this place to everybody! It was a good experience.

Awesome Central Austin House!!

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect house for our girls weekend in Austin! We wanted to find a centrally located house with enough beds to sleep a large group comfortably (and preferably had a pool!). This "gem" was that and so much more. As each girl arrived at the house, the reaction was the same - "Wow! What a cool house!" I may have even giggled a little when I got there before everyone else because I was so pleased with my choice.

The decor was modern/eclectic, but still very cozy and comfortable. The house was clean and well-maintained. There were a few things that one would expect to see in a rental house that we couldn't locate (i.e., iron/ironing board, measuring cups for cooking), but for the most part the home was well-appointed. I will note that the furniture and wall colors are not the same in person as in the pictures online. I believe the pictures may be from a previous owner or taken before redecorating the house. With that being said, the house looks even better in person!!

Another good surprise was the pool and backyard - WAY bigger in person than the pictures suggest. Unfortunately, it was rainy and overcast a majority of the weekend, but we still got a little bit of pool time in.

Moya was wonderful to work with - she was very kind in her communication with us and responded quickly to emails or calls when we had questions.

I would definitely recommend this house for other groups of girls wanting to get away and relax, family get-togethers, etc. I would not recommend this house to anyone who thinks their group may be loud or rowdy in the slightest. The "no loud party" rules are strictly enforced and although our group (all ladies in our 30s) was not a rambunctious crowd, I was still a little nervous the entire time that we would get too loud. Moral of the story - if there is a possibility you will be loud, save yourself the trouble of worrying about it and find a party-friendly house!

Have to end on a positive note - wonderful house, wonderful owner, wonderful weekend!

Car: recommended

This house is a quick walk to Austin's famous Barton Springs pool in the Zilker neighborhood. We about 5 blocks away from all of the cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques of Barton Springs and about 10 blocks away great shopping, eating, and drinking of South Lamar. It is in the best neighborhood in all of Austin. Jump in your car and you'll be to downtown in about 5 minutes and take the city bus (bus stop just two blocks from our house) and you'll be downtown in about 10 minutes. Also, the house is just 3 blocks away from a city park with a basketball court, tennis courts, a walking trail and several cool play scapes for the kids. Just a few blocks away is an entrance to Austin's famous greenbelt where you can take nice hikes and jump in the water. The house is located in Austin's 78704 district, which is known as one of Austin's 'hippest' neighborhoods. It is filled with creative houses, nice people, and locally-owned businesses. If you're coming to Austin to get the real Austin experience, this neighborhood is your best bet. It's located in the heart of what makes Austin 'Austin'.
