Peaceful and downtown usually don't go together, but...

  • 5 of 5

This place was great! Especially if you're looking to be right downtown, but also have a lot of privacy. I agree with other reviewers that being nestled inbetween an abandoned house and the City/State graveyard, I had some reservations. Being next to the abandoned house next door, may SEEM a little sketchy. But I assure you it's not at all. I quickly I found it to be very quiet and peacefull. The graveyard is so big that there's really no commotion coming from the north side of the house. Also, friendly neighbors walking their dogs in the evening, saw some jogging down the side street behind the house, some walking to the the coffee shop and tiny grocery store right down the road.

Inside it was very comfortable, super clean, nicely updated, and so convient to I-35 and downtown. And there's a great back road to get right onto the frontage road of 35, but amazingly the house is somehow buffered from the traffic noise. It really felt quiet and peaceful at night.

And the graveyard is filled with history. Memorials to hundred of the early founders of the city of Austin that date back to the mid-1800s. It's well worth a walk through. I made a couple of trips over, read the historical markers and got a great sense of Austin's history.

BTW - If you're here to see a UT Baseball game, you couldn't pick a better place. Disch-Falk field is literally two blocks away. You can clearly see the stadium from your front door.

NOW just as a heads up to some -

I can see that the house would be pretty tight for 4 people, and for them to cook dinner and hang out at the house. There's no dining room, because it's just a tiny house. But the bedrooms are plenty roomy enough, especially the master. There is a tiny kitchen table with two stools, and two stools around the kitchen counter. But I can see eating your dinner on the couch is sort of the best option. But I do that at home anyway.

And I would REALLY REALLY like to see some yard furniture and outdoor table in the front yard. Even something simple with a couple chairs. Is so peaceful out there at night, I found myself wanting to hang in the front yard and enjoy it. But I just had to sit on the front steps.

Regardless, I had a great stay and I will definitely be staying here again!

Awesome stay

  • 5 of 5

I was late to pay the remaining balance for the house but thankfully they still kept my reservation! On top of that, I was able to get ahold of both owners easily and they were both extremely helpful. The house is extremely clean, plenty of towels, easy to check in, kind of shabby yard but I enjoyed it.

Austin is a great place and is super eclectic. the house is next to a cemetery which my wife and I found very peaceful. There are some run down houses close by, but they are also followed by completely renovated and upscale homes. That's just the way austin is though, one street will be million dollar homes, the next will be run down homes. Nothing is further than 10 minutes from the house, Rainey St, 6th St, restaraunts, the university, downtown, everything. We rented a car but used uber the whole time and never payed more than 6$ for a ride.

You can't go wrong with this place and it is a bit cheaper than some of the other homes. Would have enjoyed a patio or yard to hang out in like some of my buddies had, but the price was def right for this place.

Great price great location great owner

Home is very modern on the inside and in a cool neighborhood close to downtown Austin and UT. The owner communicated quickly and we had no problems. We want to go to SXSW one year in the future and this house would be perfect.

Nice house, odd location

  • 4 of 5

The house is in a nice, quite area. It is a strange location between a broken down house and at cemetery, but there did not seem to be anything shady going on to be concerned about. Parking is easy. It is quick to downtown and there is some cool stuff in walking distance. Walking downtown takes some time, but is doable. Recommend Quickie Pickie and Hillside Farmacy down the street. There is also a good french restaurant
