TRANQUIL SOUTH AUSTIN GEM WITH COMFY BEDS AND LARGE BACK YARD

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

3 Beds / 2 Full Baths Designed for Comfort and Entertaining

Located a few miles from South Congress and South Lamar, this spacious South Austin home is designed for entertaining visitors of all ages as well as their beloved four-legged friends. The property is a short drive away from many uniquely Austin restaurants, food trailers, shops, parks, and more. It allows residents to experience Austin's creative and 'weird' landscape while maintaining a feeling of coziness that makes everyone feel welcome.

The one story home has 3 bedrooms with comfy queen beds and 2 full baths, including double vanities in the master. The master suite is recently renovated providing a modern and tranquil escape that wouldn't be complete without a bubble bath in the new large soaking tub. The kitchen is fully furnished and great for amateur or wannabe chefs who want to save a few dollars and make meals at home. Most importantly the large back yard provides a private oasis perfect for a cup of joe on the patio, reading a book in the hammock, playing a game of horse shoes, or enjoying time with family and pets. Whether you're coming to Austin for a long weekend or for work, you'll find everything you need to feel right at home!

We are a young and energetic couple with big dreams to make an impact in the world. We are originally from the Dallas area but moved back to our old college stomping grounds a few years after graduating from UT and TX State. We take great pride in our first home and hope all who visit find it cozy, clean, and fun!!!

Jay Fribourg purchased this house in 2008

Austin is the kind of place that grabs your heart and soul and never lets go. It's where we first met in college and fell in love with all the outdoor activities, live music, good food, beautiful art, and friendly/talented/open-minded people. We knew this was the place we wanted to call home and hopefully raise a family one day.

Take one step out the back door and you'll quickly see why this property stole our hearts. As outdoor and pet lovers we saw an oasis in the back yard filled with lots of trees and space, including a horseshoe pit. Sit on the patio and enjoy a cup of joe while you watch the big Texas sky turn colors morning and night. Keep a watchful eye for doves, blue jays, cardinals, and playful squirrels in the morning and listen closely for owls that sometimes visit under the starry night sky. The back yard is our favorite 'room' in the house and provides a peaceful place for relaxing or fun including horse shoes, hula hoops, frisbees, croquet, and catch (all game equipment included in the garage).

We also love the open layout of the living and kitchen areas that allow us to talk and laugh with friends without anyone feeling secluded or left out. All the natural light that comes in from the back yard windows leaves us with a feeling of warmth and happiness.

Our stay was perfect!!

  • 5 of 5
We went to Austin for a long weekend get away. My son and his family arrived before we did and they called to tell me I was going to love the house. The house has been updated, very clean, well stocked and has a beautiful back yard. I can't say enough about the house. Jay is a pleasure to work with and was there to answer any questions I might have and was quick to refund our deposit two days after we left. We will definitely be back!!

Austin charm in a relaxing atmosphere!

  • 5 of 5
Immaculately clean and lovingly maintained, this is one of the best privately owned vacation properties I've ever stayed at! All of the comforts of home followed me here (I honestly can't think of anything this home didn't have!), and I immediately felt welcomed. The contemporary decor had an Austin flavor to it, and had a wonderful inherent balance...a short drive from downtown, but the privacy and quiet of a suburban family home. I loved being able to both get into the city for some dining and night life, as well as lounge around and relax both inside (lovely bubble bath? yes, please!) and outside (one word...hammock!). As someone who has quite a bit of travel under their belt, please take my word for it...this is a great place to call home for a bit...I will be back!

Great property!

  • 5 of 5
Great home for an Austin getaway! We had 3 couples and it was very comfortable stay. The house was very clean and well maintained. Very quiet neighborhood, but still close to everything. We could see that they had a dog from a small basket of toys, but would not have been able to tell if not for that. Would definitely stay here again.

Best Pet Friendly Rental in Austin, TX

  • 5 of 5
This is a MUST stay when in Austin with your fur babies. The backyard is amazing. Lots of room for them to play and plenty of shade. We enjoyed the firefly show on the last evening of our stay. The house is extremely pet friendly as well and included a basket of dog toys. Everything we needed for humans and fur babies was provided. The owners were extremely accessible and gracious. Easy access and reasonable check-out instructions. We appreciated being able to park inside the garage. Probably the most comfortable beds we've ever slept in besides our own. Great location away from the hustle of the city, yet easily accessible to all areas of Austin. No issues with getting our deposit back. Thanks, Jay, for making this one of the best birthdays my mom has ever had!

Beautiful backyard, lovely spacious interior

  • 5 of 5
Couldn't have wished for anything better! Jay is great to work with, answered all questions promptly and was a most gracious host. You can't go wrong with this property. Fairly easy to get to most anywhere in Austin. Just know that if you go shopping, bring a bag; Austin is a no plastic bag city...it was a little strange not getting a bag from the stores.

What's not to love about Austin?!?! The music is abundant, the food is delicious, the scenery is beautiful, the art is unique, and most of all the people are welcoming! Known as the live music capital of the world, you can find events like SXSW (March) and ACL (October) only 15 minutes away. Don't waste your time on chain stores or restaurants... there are many uniquely Austin shops, eats, and treats right at your fingertips.
