Overview

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

New East Austin Modern Farmhouse, .5 Acres, 4BR/2.5 BA, 3 Min Walk To Light Rail

This house has a little of it all: location, charm, convenience, comfort.

If you're looking for location and convenience, we are 1 mile east of downtown and a 3 minute walk to the MLK light rail station. Whether driving, riding, cycling, or walking you are sure to get anywhere in central Austin quickly without having to fight traffic.

Built in late 2013 you will get both comfort and charm with this modern farmhouse. The well spaced, 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath home has a master suite downstairs and 3 bedrooms upstairs. The large living room windows and french doors opening on to the back patio give plenty of light to this open floor plan. There is also plenty of seating for dining or relaxing in the living room. If you are looking for space outdoors, the house sits on over .5 acres and is home to a majestic, 250+ yr old live oak tree.

If you are a family traveling with small children, a crib, high chair, etc are all available. We can work with you to provide any additional items that would make your trip easier with children, such as strollers, carseats, babysitting references and more.

About Robert McKee

Our dream for this house started back in 2011 when we purchased the 1 acre lot. Two years later construction was completed and we moved in late 2013.

We're a family with 2 kiddos and like to maintain an open door policy. Whether that's additional people living with us, family members in town, friends/friends family, or out of town guests, we love sharing our home with others.

Robert McKee purchased this house in 2013

Why Robert McKee chose Austin

We love East Austin because it is a thriving and diverse part of town, increasingly the place to be in near downtown. In addition to being home to some of the best Tex-Mex dining in the city -- Nuevo Leon, Licha's Cantina, and El Chile are three favorites-- there are many restaurants, coffee houses and bars on the east side. The hot spots are on Manor Road, East 5th-East 7th, and, more recently, the Mueller Development. Eastside Pies, Salvage Vanguard Theatre, Bennu Coffee, Haymaker and Contigo are highlights.

What makes this house unique

The entire East side of our first floor features large windows and glass french doors, allowing for lots of natural light in both the living and dining areas. This openness and abundance of light sets the tone for our entire house, which is clean, simple and airy. Self-proclaimed anti-clutter enthusiasts, we keep the house clean and kitsch-free while not skimping on comfort and style.

Great location for SXSW (and everything downtown)!

  • 5 of 5

We came to town for SXSW Interactive. We helped plan and staff an event during the festival and needed a great place to stay that was close to E 6th St. and comfortable for all of our employees. We definitely found this and more at Robert's! Thank you so much for being accommodating and opening up your space to us. I know I'll definitely be looking to rent this property again if I'm ever back in Austin.

Great New Year’s getaway in Austin Texas

  • 5 of 5

We came to town for an extended New Year’s celebration and it was just what we needed and beyond what we expected. Often you find things that could be improved when renting but that wasn't the case with this property. Great location, spacious, clean, well-care for, comfortable and beautifully decorated. Robert and Marie made sure that we had everything we needed and were very helpful in making this trip a success! Thank you guys for allowing us to use your home, if we ever are back in town we will be looking to rent this property again and have recommended it to all our family and friends. If you are ever in Austin and looking for a great place to stay, check out this property. Five Stars!!

When can we come back?!?

  • 5 of 5

We could not be happier with our choice to stay here during our visit to Austin. There were very clear instructions on what to do/how to operate things in the house as well as a useful guide to local restaurants, bars, and fun things to do while we were here. Everything in the house is brand new and felt clean, spacious and well planned. I wish I could have stayed forever!

The owners were truly a pleasure to work with and went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed -- they are rightfully proud of their beautiful home and eager for those staying there to enjoy the experience. I will definitely be recommending this house to friends and family looking for a home stay while visiting Austin.
