East Austin, our neighborhood, has just ranked at number 7 on Forbes’ hippest hipster neighborhood of America list.

Amenities: the Town Lake Home is well-appointed and bathed with soothing natural light. Many of the windows have views of the trees and all are dressed with shades to provide your preferred level of darkness. Newly renovated, modernly furnished, and cleaned to the utmost detail, it comfortably sleeps 5 people.

Living room is embraced by an inviting suede sectional couch and a HDTV with cable.

Handicap accessibility: typically, Spanish style homes have one floor but asymmetrical level plans, creating one or two steps in between some of the quarters. Keep that in mind if you are bringing small children or mobility-challenged guests.

Outdoor space and parking: a wood pellet smoker-grill and an inviting patio dinning set provides the perfect opportunity for some Texas style BBQ or just some relaxation under the trees. Our lot is fenced and gated and you may park inside or on the street right in front of our property.

Neighborhood: enjoy Lady Bird Lake, formally known as Town Lake, just 2 blocks away from the house for a picnic, stroll, run, bike ride or fishing in its lush 14 miles trail. This trail has many different parks such as the festival beach park, Zilker park, Barton springs pool and auditorium shores to name a few. It also has access to other venues such as fiesta gardens, the long center for the performing arts, the Zilker botanical garden, the Umlauf sculpture garden and the Austin nature center. Live outdoor music concerts are abundant and this area, from classical to blues and everything in between.

Lady Bird Lake and its surroundings host a variety of festivals such as ACL, SXSW, bat, kite, reggae, Celtic, pecan street festivals and many more.

Shopping: with local groceries stores, farmer’s market, health food store such as whole foods just minutes away, you could very well take advantage of our well-equipped kitchen. If you are looking to enhance your wardrobe, just minutes away is the 2nd street district, where Texas warmth meets Austin cool. Within 7-15 minutes away there are many shopping centers and malls such as Barton Creek Square mall and the domain, featuring 1,300,000 square feet of upscale and mainstream retail. For impressive savings and great variety, the San Marcos premium outlet, hosting 140 stores, is 40 minutes away.

Eateries: walk 5 blocks to Mr. Natural, a natural foods restaurant (gluten free and vegetarian), bakery, juice bar and health food store. Walk 6 blocks to Las Cazuelas, an authentic Mexican restaurant with the best al pastor tacos and torta milanesa in town. Walk a few more blocks to Cenote coffee shop, just voted the “best coffee in Austin”. Within a mile ride away, you have a great variety of cuisines to choose from: Brazilian, Colombian, french, Italian, BBQ, American, Asian and more. Oh, and did i mentioned the many food trailers?

Nightlife: the town lake home is a hop away from all that Austin has to offer for your nightlife. From the historic 6th street, the new upcoming Rainey street, the upscale warehouse district, to our own east Austin neighborhood nightlife, you will find bars, dance clubs, comedy clubs and live theaters to satisfy any taste. And, of course, as Austin is the “live music capital of world,” there is plenty of live music!

Restrictions: in consideration of all guests and our neighbors: no pets, absolutely no smoking anywhere in our property (inside or outside), or excessively loud parties are allowed. A contract agreeing to pay for smoke, party damage, or seriously careless damage is required. If more than 5 people will be in your party, please inform us of the number ahead of time.

About Paola and Aditya. Portuguese and Hindi speakers

Austin’s diversity in culture, style and outdoor activities makes this city the perfect home for this musician/teacher/engineer/nature lovers/international couple. We love here! Coming from Brazil and India, we couldn't ask for a better place!

Paola and Aditya. Portuguese and Hindi speakers purchased this house in 2012

Why Paola and Aditya. Portuguese and Hindi speakers chose Austin

We simply love downtown Austin. You see, we fell in love with each other salsa dancing at many of Austin’s great live music locations.

As often as we can, we visit Lady Bird Lake for a relaxing hike & bike outing, followed by an indulgent meal in one of downtown’s world famous local eateries. We have always wanted to take a vacation in our 'own' town, just by traveling a bit south. When this delightful and character filled property right by the lake became available, we jumped on it!

The 'fight' was fierce as lots of potential buyers felt captivated by this property as well.

The care that this home’s previous owners showered on it can be summarized by the shared quote from both buyer & seller’s real state agents after closing:

“In our collective 40 years in real estate in Austin, we have not seen such a high demand property”. We are fortunate to call this our home away from home, and hope that the TOWN LAKE HOME will be the same for you.

Perfect east side home

  • 5 of 5
Two friends and I decided to take a chance on this house because it seemed homey and cozy for our trip to ACL, and it didn't disappoint! Everything about this place felt like home, except we were in one of the coolest neighborhoods in one of the best cities in the U.S. The house was clean, everything we needed was provided, and the yard is great for BBQing and lounging. If you are planning on taking a day to chill and relax in the home, it has all the amenities: 3 HDTV's, king size beds, a memory foam mattress, washer/dryer, etc. You're exactly a mile from Rainey St and just three miles from Zilker Park. Very walkable and quaint neighborhood with several markets within a five minute walk. Paola and Aditya were fantastic!

Nice House and Super Convenient!

  • 4 of 5
I rented this house to attend a conference at the convention center. The house was actually very similar in price to the recommended hotels - and here I had the room to invite others to join me and to have more privacy than is possible in a hotel, and the convention center was a short and easy drive away that did not require taking any of the roads that tended to back up. The house and yard were nicely maintained and the furnishings high class. The neighborhood was quiet. Some of the special touches, like a welcome basket and beers in the refrigerator and a first aid kit in the bathroom go well beyond what I expect in a VRBO.
My only complaint is that the bedrooms do not have adequate window dressings. There are motion detectors that turn on lights outside, which is fine, but they went off several times in the night, probably because of cats or other small animals, and the blinds in the bedrooms could not keep the light out. I woke several times each night because of this and would recommend adding a layer of curtains.
As long as you are not a sleeper who is sensitive to light, and are okay with a couple of stairs due to the layout of the house, I would recommend this house when staying in Austin.

The home was cozy and comfortable. With all of the amenities that you could hope for. The property was well maintained and clean. We appreciated all the little snacks that were left for us as well as the ease of check in and out! We will definitely be staying here again!

nice home close to down town

  • 4 of 5
Clean home with nice amenities, super quiet home with all we needed close to down town. Gated entry easy access with key less locks. Owner is obviously focused on technology and thoughtful in design, amenities, and ease of use. Storm raged outside and we rested comfortably in this home, provided snacks and coffee were a huge extra perk as we attended a conference. Really appreciated having and extra umbrella too!

Austin vacation

  • 4 of 5
We had a great stay in this lovely flat just east of downtown. Everything was as advertised. The owners were helpful and did a couple of special things for our family that we very much appreciated. Someone in another review lamented that this is a "transitional" area, which it is, but homes are being renovated in the area at a rapid clip and this will soon be the next hot neighborhood. You can't beat the proximity to downtown and I 35. It is literally two blocks to the trail by the river/lake and I bicycled there a couple of mornings. We always felt safe and loved how easy it was to get everywhere. The owners provide lots of local info and restaurant recommendations which are helpful. The only down side for us was that we were counting on using the Eurobed in the office. It was pretty hard and only one of the four of us could endure sleeping on it, so just be aware that it may not be the best option for an extra bed. The king beds were great, though. The kitchen was well stocked and convenient. It was great to have a washer/dryer. The only reason I am giving it four stars instead of five is because of the Eurobed not being what we expected and its impact on our sleeping arrangements. Everything else was delightful and I would definitely recommend this home and its gracious owners.
