Austin House Rental Photos and Description
UT/Stadium, Downtown, The Drag - ACL, F1, SXSW or Just Because!

This Texas-sized home welcomes you to the quaint Hyde Park historic neighborhood - five minutes to anywhere! Well, almost anywhere.

When you first walk into the front door, you're welcomed by a living room that opens to the dining area, an expanse the size of some apartments. With enough couch space to seat a family around the television, cable television, Wi-Fi and a DVD/Blue Ray combo, the family isn't hard pressed for much on movie night.

The best/worst thing that happened to Thanksgiving is football. But, let's face it, when the game is on, the game is on. Hence our open concept dining area - for traditional and modern families alike. With optional seating for 8, even your dining options are versatile!

If that's not enough, your second living area should pick up the slack. With cable and DVD options, you have plenty of choices for a large/diverse group.

Your kitchen is no rookie kitchen either (although it's great for rookies, too). With a gas stove, two ovens, LOTS of counter space, pots, pans, cooking utensils, a diverse spice rack, tea, coffee beans, coffee grinder & maker, plates, silverware, glasses and even wine glasses, you need only bring your specialty items. We even have basic condiments, a toster and shopping bags for your convenience.

Bedrooms 1-4 each have a king-sized bed, large mirror, chest of drawers, bedside table and lamp. Your master bedroom also has a fold out couch and an mp3 dock (for playing your digital media or podcasts). Bedroom 5 has two twin beds, children's books and a couple of games. So at night, or for sleeping in, your home is a nest built for cozying up when you're not out on th' town!

Also, no home is complete without access to the restroom. You'll have two full restrooms downstairs (1 shower/bath, 1 shower) and a hollywood bath upstairs (1 shower/bath combo with two separate toilet/washrooms) between both upstairs bedrooms. So, whether you have to get up in the middle of the night or have a big event to prepare for, there's easy access to take care of your needs. Assorted towels, make-up pads, tissue soaps and hair dryers are also provided for your convenience.

And, to make your home complete, your backyard comes with a bench that can easily seat 6, couple of extra lawn chairs, a large umbrella, a grill and grilling tools for your convenience. Meanwhile, your lovely front yard, with tiny front porch is a great spot for a couple of people to sit and catch up under the shade of a large tree, while waving at your neighbors and taking in breathing the nice Austin air.

While you're not enjoying your wonderful home, we hope you're busy enjoying our fair city. There's information here, on the table, to get you started.

Hyde Park is an even mix of city life with a quaint feel. With much of Austin's action happening within a 3 mile radius, you'll have quick access to the University of Texas, downtown, the Austin Convention Center, and many other Austin happenings. Conveniently situated between Red River and Guadalupe street (and a straight shot to I-35), you don't have to be a master navigator to drive around. And, if you don't feel like driving, you can simply step outside to catch the bus that stops within 30 feet of your front door. Also, with a few varieties of local restaurants and shops within a 5 minute walk, you don't have to venture far for a night out. Or, when you're not feeling like a tourist, you can also walk to Shipe Park or one of the nearby caf├ęs, and simply lay low.

This home is also ideal for large groups, looking for 3 - 5 bedrooms - up to 11 people (though we are NOT a party house). You can bring your large group for weddings, seminars, SXSW, UT games/events, ACL, F1 and more.

I had a wonderful experience staying at this house during a bachelorette party with 11 girls. It is very spacious and clean. The living room and kitchen are awesome. Ric was very helpful throughout the whole process. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in Austin.

The location was very close to the freeway for quick commutes. Very Historic neighborhood with modern upgrades from within. It accomodated 10+ adults and kids with ease. We had room to securely park 5 motorcycles and a few cars. Very Clean and nice and cool to beat the Austin heat. This house had more amenities than most hotels. There was a plethera of towels/linens/soaps,shampoos/conditioners all for use of guest. Ric was very helpful with helping us locate property in the area. We attended the ROT motorcycle rally and this location is as good as any. My only 2 "slight issues" were the VERY busy street (45th) and possibly upgrading the Wireless Router to a stronger one. No signal on front side of house. Believe me those aren't' deal breakers at all!! We put my parents and older couples on the inside bedrooms away from the street and it worked perfectly!! I would recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a place to entertain/sleep a big group of around 10 adults.
Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback! We've upgraded our wi-fi package, and it's great now.

I rented the whole house for a bachelorette party. Everyone thought it was amazing! Ric was super nice and stopped by on our first night to make sure we got in ok. The house is huge--more than enough space for 10 people, and the 3.5 bathrooms definitely came in handy with that many girls. The neighborhood, Hyde Park, is lovely and close to places like Central Market and high end restaurants, and there is a Walgreens within walking distance if you forget to bring anything. We spent a lot of time downtown, which was around a $15 taxi, though also easy to get to if you have your own car. I would definitely recommend it for large groups as a good alternative to a hotel--the kitchen is great and stocked with some basics, so you can save some money by cooking for yourself.
The rooms were all spotless and well-decorated, and the bathrooms were new-looking and clean.
The only downside was that the internet was a little slow.
Owner's Response: Hi! I'm sorry the wi-fi was slow. During your stay, the wi-fi was in the back and didn't seem to work in the front of the large home. But, as of September 2013, we've upgraded our network, and it seems to work all over the house. So, please come back and see us!

My husband and I stayed here with our four kids. We were coming in for a big wedding and this place was perfect. A short drive to downtown and Zilker park but we still got the benefit of staying in a beautiful historic neighborhood. The house was well maintained and immaculately clean. The kitchen was stocked with everything I needed for making meals and there was enough space for the teenagers to have their own living room to hang out in. We were close to three different grocery stores, two blocks from a great park, two blocks from a Walgreens drug store and there are several coffee shops nearby. The management was responsive and professional. This was only our second time in a vacation rental vs. a hotel. We loved it and will be back asap.
