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

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 4

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.

Reviewer Comments:
This little house is walking distance to some of the best dining spots in Austin-Sway, Lenoir, Elizabeth st cafe-are all around the corner. As are the food trailers. The house itself shares a lot w 2 other properties. It's well maintained and a lot of basics are provided for cooking as well as in the bathrooms. There are detailed explanations for how everything in the house works, as well as suggestions for what to do in Austin. The house was spotless when we arrived-our 8 month old baby crawled all over the floor without gathering dust..

Lovely house in a great location

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful 2 bedroom home in a great location for the bars and food trucks plus only a 5 minute cab ride to down town Austin
The house is over 100 years old and it's lovely
The owner leaves a comprehensive "How to" list and local area guide - very useful too.

This is our first time using VBRO, the booking process was a little tricky; however it was all well worth it. This Austin home is adorable and has been so comfortable to come back to after each daytime adventure. All of the extra amenities have been noted through out the house and it's been cute finding them. You can tell that nothing Is half though out here.

Cute, interesting house close to everything and value for money

  • 4 of 5
Very ornate furnishings and everything very organised. Nice verandah's to sit on and nice garden to sit in at night - although lots of mosquitos. Probably too much ornate furniture and ornaments in the house. A/c was good but curtains not so good. Great water saving flushing toilets. We loved the location!

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...

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.
