Overview

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

This nicely renovated cottage is a fantastic place to stay for your visit to Austin. Now featuring a shiny new kitchen update with granite countertops!!

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 quiet long term renter on the other side. The houses have separate entrances/outside areas and the shared living room wall has been thoroughly (wonderfully) soundproofed. The driveway entrance as well as the entrance to the rental are accessible through the alley, so it is all 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 and check out Car2Go.

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.

Reviewer Comments:

Our "mid-century casita" was most comfortable. We found it to be clean with all necessary amenities, including a most comfortable bed, lovely thick towels and plenty of hot water. The wifi served us well, it was well temperature controlled, and our doggies loved romping on the hill, outside. We especially enjoyed being so close to Congress St. and our family off of Lamar, without lots of outside noise. I'd be happy if this unit were available again when we stay in Austin, and would recommend it to anyone needing comfortable quarters in the area.

We loved this place. Such a great location, and a very clean and comfy property. We walked to South Congress many times. The management was professional, very helpful and responsive, even on the weekend. We'd stay here again, no question.

Reviewer Comments:

The unit was exactly what was described. It is a little older than some other places we looked at, but it was clean, well maintained, in a great location and had everything we needed. The shower head was not great, the water came out too hard and it felt like needles on the skin, but we found that in a lot of places in the US.

Great rental. Small but we only needed a place to lay our head at night (but definitely bigger than a hotel!) Very nice having a gated driveway. Will absolutely stay again!

We had a wonderful weekend in the comfortable Kenwood Casita! Brooke from the management company was great and called me right back after I called her with one question There were many nice gestures such as regular and decaf coffee in the kitchen and shampoo in the shower. The driveway was a little treacherous but the street parking was plentiful. We would definitely stay there again!
