About Connie 'Paprika' Leaverton

Welcome to The SoLa Lodge, the hip, cool house close to everything. My name is Connie 'Paprika' Leaverton and I own this beautiful house.

The Sola Lodge is located in a great Location in the upscale Zilker Neighborhood close to SoLa or South Lamar Business District. Shopping, bars, cafes and more are just moments out the door, easy walking distance to so many wonderful places. Restaurant Row is about 1 mile and Barton Springs and Zilker Park is in the same neighborhood.

Inside the house, unique ceiling fans and beautiful bamboo floors await you. Walk to Shops, Food, Movies (theatre is being re-built at this time), Music and more!

The house is beautifully decorated..with 2 queen and 2 XL twin beds that are new, comfy and perfect for families or groups. The twins are great for adults too because they are extra long.

I love this house and location. And I hope you come and visit and see what I mean. I take great care of the house and have a high standard in cleanliness and maintenance.

With a fully furnished kitchen, concrete counters, dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven and new dishes, pots and pans, you will find yourself ready to cook. Just bring food. Coffee set-ups are also provided.

I enjoy renting my house. It's special for me to have a wonderfully furnished home that I can share with many people. So come on out, it would be great to have you here at the Kinney Ave. House.

Connie 'Paprika' Leaverton purchased this house in 2009

Why Connie 'Paprika' Leaverton chose Austin

The Austin area has the coolest zip code. That is 78704, and that is where this house is located. Zilker Park Neighborhood is gorgeous with large trees, great walking and safe. Beautiful, a bit urban and enticing.

The house is not only close to downtown and 6th street (2 miles), but close to the newest happening area of South Lamar or SoLa.

I bought this house to be a vacation rental, so it is equipped with the newest furnishings, bamboo floors, and urban modern design. Wifi and cable TV are also included.

Come enjoy the house, but even more, come visit unique Austin...because this house is right in the middle of everything cool and wonderful about Austin. Irie Bean Coffee House, Saxon Pub, Alamo Drafthouse Theatre, Zilker Park, 6th street and so much more within walking or close driving distance.

What makes this house unique

The SoLa Lodge has 3 bedrooms, with 2 queen beds, two twin Beds and convertible couch in the front room. Additional blow up mattress available. This allows for different kinds of groups to use the house to the fullest. The tile and bamboo floors, and no pets policy allows for a clean environment that is great for adults that want to visit and enjoy Austin.

This urban location is nestled in the 78704 neighborhood, while being on the edge of access to all that is happening in Austin.

Come enjoy the SoLa Lodge. It will give you an All Access pass to fun in Austin.

Perfect Accommodation for Family of 6!

  • 5 of 5
Two parents, four teenagers, college visit weekend. This home was quite comfortable for our large crowd. A smart layout in a nice location with lots of great restaurants and activities nearby. We swam in Barton Springs and nearly had it to ourselves on a Saturday evening in March. It was lovely!

What A Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5
Sola Lodge was everything we needed and more. We had a sizable party of 7 (with two couples) and we were more than comfortable, this was our home and home base for three wonderful days. The backyard was a perfect retreat every morning and a perfect place to wind down in the evening. A well supplied kitchen made for nice meals and the laundry room saved us more than once! All of the beds were so comfortable and having two bathrooms was so key with such a large group. Transportation on the bus was a simple straight shot to downtown though taxis were a but hard to come by, which was fairly easily solved by downloading an Austin taxi app. Everything was wonderful, and I would highly recommend this warm, comfortable and inviting house.

Best Accommodations in Austin Yet!!

  • 5 of 5
I've stayed in Austin several times over the years and I have to say that this was my best visit yet, due in large part to staying at the Sola Lodge this time around. The photos online were nicely representative of the space; it was extremely well furnished and very clean. The kitchen and baths had everything we needed. The price was reasonable. The location was in proximity to downtown and Zilker Park/Barton Springs and there were plenty of nice restaurants within walking distance. Connie was available and courteously responsive to us during the rental process AND during our few days in town. She couldn't have been nicer or more professional. I would highly recommend this property and will not hesitate to stay in this or any other property owned by Connie during my next visit. Thanks so much for helping make our visit to Austin unforgettable!!

Wonderful Home, Loved walking everywhere!

  • 5 of 5
The Sola Lodge was perfect for our group. We enjoy the outdoors, and could sit outside in the back patio under the umbrella. The BBQ grill was great. We enjoyed walking to the many shops and cafes as well. Found a fun bead shop too just around the corner. Cute area! We'll be back.

Owner's Response: The Zilker Neighborhood is quite charming with many cafes, pubs, music and quaint shops of all kinds within a 1 mile radius. Most you can walk to. Glad you found the Saxon and One to One Bar. There is also the Black Sheep Lodge and a Pizza place moments away. The infamous country-western dance place, The Broken Spoke is just down SoLa, or South Lamar. The Sola area is booming with so many shops, cafes and interesting clothes. And over at Restaurant Row on Barton Springs Blvd. is an entire array of great restaurants including Chuy's, the mexican food place everyone must try when they are in Austin. The Saxon Pub always has great music, and there are quite a few coffee shops close by. Around the corner is a wonderful wine and desert place, across the street amazing Italian food, and down the street Kerby Lane Cafe which is open 24 hours and is amazing! Staying at the Sola Lodge gives you close access to many wonderful places while staying in a very nice, upscale neighborhood close to Barton Springs Pool, where you can find the Zilker Train. This is where the Austin City Limits Fest is held. I think its most people's favorite neighborhood in Austin!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the neighborhood. It's wonderful with many great shops and cafes close by. The quaint neighborhood is on the edge of downtown and next to SoLa or South Lamar, which gives my SoLa Lodge guests walking access to multiple eateries including Italian, Japanese, Mexican, a 24 hour diner (Kerby Lane) and close proximity to great live music. Downtown is about 1.5 miles away. Many people jump on the bus and ride to the entertainment district of 6th street. And on the other end of the Kinney Ave. is the restaurant row with BBQ, Mexican, Juice Bar, Flipnotics Coffee Shop and so much more. What a great area. Barton Springs Pool is also close by with a constant 68 degrees even in the summer. This pool is also adjacent to the hike and bike trails which go on for miles and miles bordering the Barton Creek. Quite a magical area. Glad you stayed and thank you for your rental!

Notes:
it's in 78704, that should be enough :) But in case it isn't...this house is a perfect launch pad to see what Austin is truly all about. Some of our favorite restaurants, bars, and ice cream shops are less than a block away! The Black Sheep Lodge, El Mason Mexican, Barley Swine (as seen on TV!) and Lick ice creamery are just around the corner. Also, OPA wine bar, Olivias (awesome brunch!), and the famous Horseshoe Lounge. No landline phone available at house.
