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 in 2011. Roughly two years later construction was completed and we moved in late November 2013.

We're a family with 1 kiddo and like to maintain an open door policy. Whether that's additional people living with us, family members in town, friends/friends family, or VRBO 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 central Austin. In addition to being home to some of the best Tex-Mex dining in the city -- Nuevo Leon, Vivo, 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 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.

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.

Perfect house, fun weekend

  • 5 of 5
We were in town for a wedding and mini reunion with close friends. The house itself was fabulous, beautifully decorated, and spacious. Everywhere we went was within 5-10 minutes away. Had there not been so much to do around there or a lack of amazing food, we would have been happy just hanging out at the house all weekend. My two young children loved the backyard and have begged us to put up swings at my house now. Marie and Robert were very accommodating and I would recommend their lovely home to anyone visiting Austin. I hope to make it back one day as well.

Great City Vacation Home in Austin

  • 5 of 5
I would highly recommend this beautiful home for families with young children. Marie was there to welcome my family when we arrived and even gave us a tour of her home. The house was very clean and cozy. It had everything we needed for a weekend in Austin including a well stocked kitchen and nursery for our 9 month old. Centrally located and easy access to I-35 and 183, I would recommend this house for families and young professionals that want a chic place to stay in Austin.

Owner's Response: We are always happy to provide anything that those traveling with children might need- While we typically store the highchair, changing table, etc for adult groups, we are more than happy to leave everything set up for families. We appreciate the kind review!

Spacious, immaculate, and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of 6 adults and two small children getting together for a long weekend to attend a college friend's wedding. This house was perfect for us - close to the airport for those of us that were flying, but still central enough for us to get to East Austin (where we spent most our time), North Lamar, campus, downtown, etc within 10-15 minutes. Robert and his wife were very accommodating. The place is super clean and new, and styled comfortably and beautifully. Rooms are all separate enough so that late night chats didn't keep the early sleepers awake. We had a great time, and I definitely recommend this house to people who want a comfortable, well stocked, and well designed home base while in Austin.
