Austin Apartment Rental Photos and Description

duplex in serene setting-- 2 Bed / 1 Bath -- Newly Updated!

Charming duplex in serene setting, within walking distance to some of the best “hot spots” in Austin! Sleeps 6 with two bedrooms, each with queen size bed and ceiling fans, plus a sleeper sofa in the living room. Comes with well stocked kitchen and dining area, with french doors leading to a private backyard that’s a great place to relax and enjoy our complimentary bottle of wine.

Internet and cable are available, along with a washer and dryer, which is perfect for families traveling with kids, or for those who want to enjoy a vacation getaway with all the perks.

Has reserved driveway parking for two cars (plus street parking), but you can just walk out the door to enjoy a refreshing swim, or a lazy afternoon, at Barton Springs Pool, which is only a half mile away. This is a great location to explore Barton Hills & Zilker Park neighborhoods, stroll through the Umlauf Sculpture Gardens, enjoy music and food at a variety of great restaurants, or walk on the Lady Bird Lake hike and bike trail, all of which are less than a mile away!

About Yvette Rodgers

I've lived in Austin for 15 years, am married, and have two dogs. I'm part of Austin's high-tech industry and work as a software developer. I also play either standup bass or guitar in a band or two at any given time.

Yvette Rodgers purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Yvette Rodgers chose Austin

This property is the first house I ever owned! I lived on one side and rented out the other side. So I have a strong attachment to this home and have put a lot of time and energy into making it beautiful and comfortable. I chose this house because it is in such a beautiful and convenient area--it's close to everything that I love about Austin.

What makes this apartment unique

My friend, the celebrated Austin artist, Stefanie Distefano, created the beautiful floor mosaics that are masterfully placed throughout the house. I particularly love waking up in the back bedroom and looking out through the french windows out at the tree tops. It's so private and green!

Quiet central location

  • 3 of 5
Good location but Barton Springs closed during our stay. Compact, kitchen and bathroom well equipped. Furnishings and decor poor. Not the best value Home Away property we have stayed in Austin.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed for 5 nights while attending the Fantastic Fest movie festival. This really was the perfect rental. It was cozy, clean and comfortable and had everything we needed and more. The quiet neighborhood was gorgeous and great to walk around with our dog. We also made a few trips down to Barton Springs which was walking distance away. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to everyone else.

LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
A friend and I stayed in this home for a month stay, while we did some Physical Therapy at a rehabilitation in Austin, TX. Let me first add, my friend and I are both paraplegics, so we are both in wheelchairs. When we first got there, we realized the bathroom door was too small for our chairs to get in. We panicked. We called Ted, the landlord, and he was at the house within minutes. He placed us in a hotel and the next day knocked down the wall and made a new doorway. WOW - I was overwhelmed with how nice he was about it and understanding. THAT is hospitality my friends. The door was finished in two days and we were back in the home for the month. After that, we had no problems at all. Ted was an amazing landlord, who truly cared about the service he gave and taking care of his clients. I loved the home. It was beautiful, gorgeous view, quite neighborhood, near downtown, convenient to all your needs, and a perfect home to do go to for vacation, business, or just a weekend stay. I recommend this home 100% percent. Thanks again, Ted!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5
First of all, I was pleased with how nice everything was. It felt so much like home and I loved that. I stayed with a friend and we are both wheelchair users. Ted did way more than I would have expected to make us both feel at home and make the place accessible for us!

Very nice and QUIET stay.

  • 5 of 5
The unit was very nice. Large TV in living room and great kitchen. Bed very comfortable. Overall very clean.

Location is perfect - $8 cab ride from Broken Spoke. Barton Springs pool is less than a mile walk.

Large drop off in back, keep a close eye on the kids. when we stayed the neighbors let their 5 yr old play in the back yard alone and she was too close for my comfort to the edge.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review. Yes, the backyard is nice and serene, but the stone wall separating the backyard from the drop off isn't very high, so children and adventurous adults need to exercise caution! We're glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you come back again!
