Overview

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

3 Beds / 2 Full Baths Designed for Comfort and Entertaining

Located a few miles from South Congress, South Lamar, and downtown, this spacious South Austin home is designed for entertaining visitors of all ages as well as their beloved four-legged friends. The property is located near the South Austin intersection of William Cannon and Manchaca which 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!

About Chelsea Fribourg

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!!!

Chelsea Fribourg purchased this house in 2008

Why Chelsea Fribourg chose Austin

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.

What makes this house unique

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 hammock and 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.

SUPER PROPERTY!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 family members and couldn't have had a better place to stay. The place is immaculate, more space than the pictures do it justice, and its got all the right room, in all the right places. The passing showers curtailed our ability to take full advantage of the enormous back yard, but it is one heck of a place to enjoy everything outside. We will be back and have better weather to do so. The owners are so very accommodating, and certainly were personable to our minor requests. Thanks guys! 5*-Stars for the house, yard, and owners!

Perfect house for any vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house. We had a large party in town for the SXSW festival and everyone enjoyed the proximity to both downtown Austin as well as the airport. It made our stay extremely convenient. The hospitality was great, and we very much appreciate the awesome backyard that allowed us to relax and decompress after experiencing the hustle and bustle of downtown. Thank you Jay and Chelsea for opening up your home to us!!! We really appreciated your warm, easy hospitality.

Crazy amazing!!!!!! Best decision we made for trip

  • 5 of 5

The home was amazing!! The pictures don't do the home justice! Our family had a wonderful time there we even had a rehearsal dinner there with 30 people very comfortable ( not sleeping but for a low country boil). We will return to this home if ever in Austin again. Thanks so much for letting us stay in your home!

Far Exceeded Our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised upon entering the house. It has been perfectly updated and very comfy. The beds are amazingly comfortable! It was apparent that the owners took great care to ensure our stay was comfortable. This house has anything you need from games to party supplies. The back yard is a large and peaceful retreat. We stayed in the house for two months and had no issues. The owners are very accessible via email or telephone, and a maintenance man lives across the street. The neighborhood is nice and quiet. We felt spoiled with all of the nearby stores and restaurants. If we ever require another short term rental, we will definitely stay here!!!! Thanks!

All of the conveniences of home...

  • 5 of 5

We are in the middle of a pretty serious renovation at our house in Austin and needed to just get away from the chaos, cook a home-cooked meal, and still be in the South Austin area. This clean, convenient little home was the perfect answer for us. Jay was a great host and was very understanding when I had to tell him that one of our dogs decided to eat the blinds in one of the guest bedrooms. We worked it out fairly, but most importantly, professionally. I would definitely recommend this place to a family who just needs someplace to relax.

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.
