2BR/2BA HUGE SUMMER DISCOUNTS! HISTORIC SOUTH AUSTIN HOME

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Check with us for summer discounts - our homes are made to be enjoyed - no reasonable offer's will be refused!

This 102 year old Victorian style home has been fully restored with top of the line environmentally conscious materials, the home is perfectly located 2 miles from the locations of both SXSW and ACL.

Located in the front of the house, with a private entrance off the front porch, this bedroom features 9 foot ceilings and 3 large bay windows looking out over the front lawn and side garden. It also has a small sitting area in front of the windows, a ceiling fan, a 26' flat panel TV with cable & DVD player, and a clock radio with an iPod dock. The master bath has a large walk-in shower big enough to share, a heated tile floor, and a large vintage mirror. A stained glass window lets in light, but maintains privacy.

The guest bedroom has a ceiling that slopes toward the back of the house and features a 1920's metal frame double bed. This cozy, private room with a walk-in closet opens to the living room on one side and a lovely period bathroom on the other. There's a full-length antique mirror and a little sitting area with an antique platform rocker. This bedroom also features a ceiling fan, a 26' flat panel TV with cable & DVD player, and a clock radio with an iPod dock. The bath has a refinished vintage clawfoot tub with a shower attachment and a beautiful vanity made from an antique tile and marble washstand. This bath also has a stained glass window and heated tile floor.

In the fully-furnished kitchen, the sink and built-in ironing board closet came out of the owner's grandmother's house and were refurbished for your use. Due to the unusual nature of the antique stove, for your safety, we have provided a counter-top convection oven and a microwave oven to use in place of the antique oven, but the cook top has been retrofitted with 4 electric burners. In addition, you'll find many modern energy-efficient appliances: dishwasher, garbage disposal, ice maker, toaster, coffee pot with timer, hot water pot, and a blender with a frozen Margarita recipe handy.

The gardens surrounding the Heritage House and the other 2 buildings on the property, planted in native flowers and shrubs, are open for your use. Ancient Pecan, Live Oak, and Red Bud trees provide ample shade. Exclusive to the vacation rental is an antique Brick Patio (with an interesting history) with a 3-tiered Fountain and native plants, under a hundreds-year-old live oak. A crushed granite Walkway circles the grounds where you will find shaded seating and tables and another large lighted, arbor-covered patio sitting area for your use. In the rear, a Rock Patio has seats and tables made from huge salvaged architectural stone pieces found on the lot. It sits next to the Oriental Garden featuring a dock and bridge, fountain, waterfall, and Koi Pond. Behind the Oriental Garden is our on-site caretaker's residence.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Most of all, I want to emphasize how wonderfully perfect this place is for us. It’s homey. It’s warm. It’s astonishingly well laid out with names for lights, notes for everything all to make it incredibly easy for newcomers to use and enjoy. Plus the home functions so beautifully: the bathrooms, the kitchen, the sitting areas. All delightful.



Your place is sublime. You should charge more. Only between us and in the interest of helping your home live up to its astonishing charm and warmth and ease, I hope I can make a small suggestion - maybe add a few kids shows to the cable TV package. That’s it. I also should add how much I love the Austin magazines and your notes on many pages. It really makes one feel at home. We will be sorry to leave. Very sorry indeed.



I should add one other thing. My only serious concern is this find has set the bar so high, I don’t know how I’ll match it when I look for other places -not in Austin of course where you will be our first and only choice- on HomeAway.com in the future.



All our family’s best to you and yours.

BEAUTIFUL VICTORIAN PROPERTY AS PROMISED!

  • 4 of 5
Our crew loved our stay at this property. It was full of character and offered lots of little freebies for traveler convenience. The morning visit to the gardens was peaceful and a great start to long days of partying...

GREAT HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time at the home. The decoration and interiors was surprisingly refreshing for a 100 year old home. It was packed with all amenities which was like home away from home. The location was great and it was close to everything. The owner recommended a SWAY thai cuisine and it was the best thai food we had ever tasted. Overall a great experience.

Reviewer Comments:
Got up to hot water. Number for man on location did not answer. I woke up owner who was very foggy and did not know quite what to do about it but stated it had happened once before. She had me hanging on the phone and not saying much...I guess because I woke her. So I asked her to call me back when she figured it out. It was fixed late that evening but very inconvenient not being able to shower for our early meeting. It was very clean but the sitting room wing chair arms were very dirty an should probably be cleaned as it did not look very nice. There was WAY to much information on little notes everywhere on how to work the heated floors and other inconsequential notes. All the notes given indicated we had to program it, when all we needed to do was simply turn it on. So we didn't have heat on the cold floors the first two days because we tried to program it and thus caused it not to work. The owner was sweet but she was a bit befuzzled about things. We asked for a stronger bulb for the bedroom as we could barely see...we received that the 3rd night before we left with other items we did not ask for. The next morning we left to go get coffee returning 15 min later and could not get back in as the doors automatically lock after a certain hour. I knew that it was a fairly early checkout but that they were very flexible and we could leave early afternoon if need be. Miscommunication there, so we had to call the owner who laughed very strangely and reluctantly had to give us her private code as she could not come over to let us get back in to get our luggage. One of the bathrooms wall plug did not work for my hair dryer and had to use the one in the bedroom with no mirror by that plug. We were not terribly dissatisfied but those little irritants were enough especially when we should have been offered a little refund for the inconvience of no hot water at the rate of 220.00 a night. Just a little disappointed.

In the fully-furnished kitchen, the sink and built-in ironing board closet came from the owner's grandmother's house and have been refurbished for you. Due to the unusual nature of the antique stove, for your safety, we have provided a microwave oven and a counter-top convection oven to use in place of the antique oven, but the cook top has been retrofitted with 4 electric burners. In addition, you'll find many modern energy-efficient appliances: a timed coffee pot, a toaster, and a blender with a frozen Margarita recipe. The house is furnished with antiques and breakables. Parents of toddlers or very active children might find that problematic. We would be happy to give each case individual consideration. We would like to consider each instance individually; and only small pets, please. Smoking only outside, please. Parking for RV/Boat/Trailer: Lots of parking at the back gate where a dead-end street ends with no nearby houses.
