Austin House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 12

Welcome to the East Austin Chateau! This 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom house is ideal for groups up to 12 that wish to stay downtown in a single property. This house is fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy your stay. Enjoy a full kitchen, on-site parking, a rooftop deck and observatory with amazing downtown views, a covered balcony off of the master suite, and two patios (one front and one back) for lounging outdoors on our lovely Texas nights.

Located within walking distance of the 6th Street Entertainment District, the warehouse district, downtown shopping, all of the hip restaurants and bars on the East Side, and UT Stadium, this location is very central on the east side of downtown Austin. You do not need a car unless you want one. Public transportation is also nearby, including the Plaza Saltillo Station for Metro Rail and numerous bus stops throughout the neighborhood.

Take advantage of this rare opportunity to enjoy Austin's downtown skyline and the serene views over the gorgeous Austin skyline. Staying here means that you get to walk to restaurants, coffee shops, live music and more. The outdoor area has been designed to create a peaceful escape right in the middle of town. This is urban living at its finest.

There are so many incredible places to eat, drink, and be entertained in Austin that it would be impossible to list it all. From the Chateau, you can easily walk to many great places on the east side of downtown. Grab a slice less than a block away at East Side Pies, or sit down and eat at the Hillside Farmacy. Franklin's BBQ is just a few blocks, and East End Winery is practically next door. The Austin Public Library and George Washington Carver Museum and Cultural Center are both steps away, along with the Hearts and Robots Hair Salon. If you want to do yoga, pilates, or get a massage, there is a small studio a block from the house.

Within a handful of blocks, you can also visit Quickie Pickie, Shangri-La, Papi Tino's, Takoba, East Village Coffee, Tamale House East, Dario's, The Grackle, Cisco's, La Perla, The Eastern, Gypsy Lounge, Hotel Vegas, Volstead Lounge, The Brixton, Sputnik, Buenos Aires Cafe, Violet Crown Social Club, Cheer Up Charlies, White Horse, East Side Showroom, Angie's, Kebabalicious, Karibu, Vintage Heart Coffee, Wuwu Sushi, and much more.

This neighborhood was named one of the hippest neighborhoods in America by Forbes Magazine too!

Chateau

I booked this property for a bachelorette party (originally for a group of 10..ended up being 8). I would love to give it 5 stars based on the house itself, however I encountered several issues throughout the weekend that made it just "good". I will start off by saying the house was generally very clean, the beds were extremely comfortable and the rooms were very spacious. The number of beds accomodated our group perfectly and we definitely had room for a few more people. With that said, the night of our arrival we had dinner reservations and when we all went to get ready we quickly realized the outlets in all of the bathrooms weren't working. Imagine 8 girls needing to do their hair and not a single person able to use a hair appliance. We tried to fix the problem ourselves by finding the circuit breaker box, but we had no luck. I contacted the property manager promptly to explain the situation and after some conversation was told an electrician would be out as soon as possible. We had to go out without doing our hair as our dinner reservation was before the electrician could make it over. Needless to say the girls were quite upset. While the response was quick, I was told that the power outage was our fault because we had plugged in too many appliances at the same, however I know this was not the case because we never even had the chance to use a single outlet. The other main issues we had were the cable/internet not working during our stay (so we couldn't watch TV) and a few of the blinds were broken so we were unable to open a few windows. Also, the details on this property state it is an 8 minute walk to 6th St., I would say it is more like a 20 minute walk. I would most definitely recommend this property, with the hope that these issues will be addressed and not happen again in the future.

Clean, close to downtown, good restaurants nearby

  • 4 of 5
Thanks Ryan for letting us rent your place. It was a perfect place to be for the weekend of the marathon. We could walk downtown or to a close by dinner and then come back to rest our weary bones. It was well equipped for what our large group needed. Thank you for your help when we had any questions. It was clean and very well equipped. We would stay here again if we came to Austin.

Perfect for a group of 14.

  • 5 of 5
This place was absolutely amazing and everything worked about perfectly! The owner was very nice and accommodating. The house was clean and had plenty of space. We had a group of 14 to celebrate NYE and were surprised that we all fit. You can fit more people on airbeds if needed but can fit 14 people comfortably. Also, the rooftop access was the coolest part of the house. We were able to see the skyline of downtown Austin and the fireworks from the rooftop. Everyone in my party had a great time at this house. Overall, I would definitely stay at this house again. Thanks for everything!

Great for Large Groups

  • 4 of 5
I booked this place to accomodate 8 guys coming in for a bachelor party. At the time of booking, no one had yet stayed at the place and there were no reviews, which was a concern. It turned out to be miplaced.

The group consisted of well-traveled, successful professionals in their late 30s. Everyone thought the place was great and very easy to get to/find. The house was clean and the beds beyond comfortable. It looks good on the inside and outside. The living space, rooms and kitchen are all much larger than the photos suggest.

As is common in rental properties, the yard isn't the most inviting nor kid-friendly, but it was clean and fine. Either way, we didn't spend anytime out back. The only issue was the mid-century stove, which either we couldn't figure out or was simply not working. Either way, Ryan was understanding and agreed to credit us.

I would recommend this place for large groups, either friends or family. Ryan was a good landlord.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying Phillip and thank you for the good review. I've decided to get a new stove and sell the antique. As cool as it looks and is, it's not worth the potential hassle!

Absolutely the best location in Austin especially for the size of the house and number of people it sleeps. The house is 1 block away from Franklin BBQ (#1 in Texas), Hillside Farmacy (excellent brunch and dinner), Blue Dahlia (cozy cute brunch and dinner), and other top Austin restaurants and bars. It takes 8 minutes to walk to 6th St and 12 minutes to walk to UT Football Stadium. Ideal for large groups that want a single downtown location to walk to and from the restaurants, bars and football games!
