Overview

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 4

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

The master bedroom, located in the front of the house, with a private entrance off the front porch, features nine foot ceilings and three large bay windows looking out over the front lawn and side garden. It also has a small sitting area in front of the windows. 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. 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. Each bedroom features a ceiling fan, a 26” flat panel TV with cable and a DVD player, and a clock radio with an iPod dock. 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 and for your safety, we have provided a counter-top convection oven and a microwave oven to use in place of the antique oven. The cook top, though, has been retrofitted with four 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 two 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-of-years-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.

Reviewer Comments:

In one word: Excellent, thank you! The house is tastefully decorated and fully equipped. We immediately felt at home, and it was very nice to meet Sue, who came by to greet us. I also liked the binder with a lot of helpful Information. The Location is just perfect, within walking distance of SoCo shops and restaurants, and close to a bus stop. At the same time, sitting on the porch with a Cup of coffee was quite relaxing, so this house offered everything we hoped for. We had a great time and will make sure to book well ahead of time for our next trip :)

The place ws so charming and had a lot of history to it, but was also modern and updated. It had everything we needed (kitchen supplies, towels, robes, toiletries, etc) and we instantly felt right at home. The location was wonderful, as it was close to shops and restaurants and it felt very peaceful and safe. We just loved our time there!

Sweet South Austin Gem

  • 4 of 5

Quaint cottage, just like in the pictures. Close to town. The owner takes a lot of pride in the house and has put a lot of effort into restoring it and furnishing it with some nice pieces. There are many food trucks nearby - I haven't had a chance to try them out but if the crowds eating there at night are anything to go by, they're good. Cottage was very clean and everything worked well. Felt right at home. Recommended!

Reviewer Comments:

There were two things that bothered me about this rental. We found out, upon arrival, that the stove did not work. This definitely put a damper on our plans. Also in both bedrooms you are not able to have complete privacy as the drapes do not come together and people from the outside can see in the windows. The house was cute and the antique furniture was comfortable.

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.
