Austin born sisters, Dorene and Denise have lived in Austin their entire lives. Our family and friends live here and we can not imagine living anywhere else! Austin is one of the hottest spots to visit in the nation. The combination of nature, live bands, and great food (Tex-Mex, barbeque, eclectic)...we just love Austin! We have owned and managed properties for 12 years and enjoy giving people a comfortable beautiful place to live and stay.

Denise and Dorene purchased this house in 2002

This property was handed down to us from our father. He had the foresight to buy the property in the 1960's and it is very special to us. Our entire family grew up and attended school in this area and many friends remain. We have loved seeing how this area has changed and grown over the years and we can quickly tell you where something 'used to be'.

We have remodeled the entire house and turned it into a South Austin gem. It is in the perfect location since it is conveniently located to downtown, restaurants, entertainment, nature walks, and shopping. Yet, you can still relax and get away from it all by sitting on the back deck with your favorite beverage.

The feeling in the house is one of being in a safe place and calmness. From the kitchen, bathroom and back deck you catch glimpses of the high rises of downtown. There is native landscaping and a large fenced in backyard with a three tiered awesome deck. Located in a good location with speedy access to other areas in Austin via highways or major roads.

MY NEW HOME, AWAY FROM HOME!!!

  • 5 of 5
The house was nicely decorated and well furnished. I took many items to cook with, just in case, only to find everything I needed to be furnished. The photos of the patio area sold me when I booked and was even more pleasant in person. Absolutely loved Torchy's Tacos being next door as well. Felt so at home during our stay. I will definitely return in the future.

WELL DECORATED, FABULOUS PATIO, EXCELLENT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay here, close to the south side music venues we visited, even walked to one on SoLa. The house is comfortable, well appointed, and has a fantastic patio. Dorene and Denise were very responsive to our needs and requests. And you can't beat rolling out of bed and popping into Torchy's for a Dirty Sanchez taco ;>)

Newly remodeled South Austin home, located in a well established neighborhood in a great location. The house is fully equipped, has refurbished wooden floors throughout with antique furnishings. A fully fitted kitchen and interior dining area look out over the tiered deck. Enjoy your meals inside or out. Views of downtown Austin from the back deck. Comfortable living area with sofa and chairs to watch the 42 inch flat screen TV or surf the internet with free WiFi. There are two bedrooms, one with a queen size bed, one with a double size bed, each has lamps and furniture. There is a queen size air mattress if needed for additional guests. A refurbished bathroom with a shower and tub will soothe your tired spirits. Parking for 2 cars in the driveway; bus stop is 1 block away. Don't miss out on Torchy's Tacos, a short stroll from your front door; great for those unique tacos to enjoy on your deck or venture down the street for some Tex-Mex dining in the evening.

Local mosaic artist, Stefanie Distefano, has bridge art displayed 1/4 mile from the house. Be sure to look 'under' the bridge to fully embrace her work.

Great local coffee shops and places to eat dotted all around. Food Trailers everywhere... try a different one each day.
