Overview

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

April 2015 brings LOTS of updates to this charming little casita! Now featuring a shiny new kitchen with granite countertops!! Everything from furnishings and decor, to bedding and household essentials have been updated and replaced - a wonderful "refresher" for a property that has always been a favorite for guests visiting South Central Austin.

Located in the charming historic neighborhood of Travis Heights, the home is near bustling South Congress Ave. 2 blocks away from Stacy Park which offers a heated spring fed swimming pool, walking trails/green belt and a playground with toddler pool & tennis courts! Easy access to grocery, shopping, dining and entertainment.

This property is a duplex with a friendly homeowner in the other unit. The houses have separate entrances/outside areas and the shared living room wall has been excellently soundproofed. You'll access your rental via the gated driveway in the alley, so it all feels very private.

Secure wireless internet and cable with DVR. House is fully outfitted with cooking utensils, etc. One covered carport space available for parking inside a gated driveway. There is a washer and dryer available in the carport.

Near all of Austin's central bus lines with cheap Uber rides to all the favorite Austin spots.

Pets are welcome at this property, but please discuss with us and obtain approval before making your reservation, as there are some restrictions and rules.

A courtesy high chair and Pack & Play are available upon request

Guestbook comments from the manager

This place was great for my weekend trip to Austin! My friends and I had a great time. The rooms were comfortable and clean. We actually rented a car, but this location was very close to a lot of the places we wanted to visit, including South Congress. Brooke was very helpful and responsive when we had last minute questions about getting to the house, etc.

We had an amazing stay at the Kenwood Casita! The home was beautiful and quiet. The location was great; we walked to Congress everyday! Talk about a workout :) The icing on the cake would have to be that there was coffee already in the house!! We are unable to function without coffee...

Had a great time staying in Austin at the Kenwood Casita. The property was exactly as described and SPOTLESS when we arrived. It was fully stocked with dishes and a coffee pot. My only complaint would be that the keypad to open the gate was buried behind vines - made it very hard to find in the dark when we arrived.

Owner's Response: Thanks Mary! Those vines grow fast in the spring! :-) We'll cut them back again, thank you for letting us know.

Love the location! Travis heights area is the best place to stay when visiting Austin! We stayed a few weeks while our house was being finished and it had everything we needed!

We had a wonderful time at the Casita. We love the backyard and the full afternoon and evening sun! We spent every morning running up and down the hills on Live Oak....and evenings sipping wine and eating our picnic meals in the backyard! The house is small, easy to keep, well equipped and close to every downtown Austin experience you could ask for! The owner is so immediately responsive to any request that is deemed appropriate! We will be back every winter!
