Jason Martin purchased this house in 2013
I fell in love in this house when I first saw it. It's the perfect getaway while still located with walking access to all that downtown Austin has to offer. It's also blocks from up and coming entertainment areas like Rainey Street and East 6th Street.
This home sleeps 18 people comfortably, while still having the option to walk downtown. These benefits make it the perfect, reasonably priced vacation rental for a group of any size spending a majority of their vacation downtown or in central Austin.
