Austin House Rental Photos and Description
4 bedroom, 3.5 bath tucked into a beautiful neighborhood in the heart of Austin

This two-story custom 'pier and beam' home was built in 2007 and includes 4 bedrooms/3.5 baths and oak hardwoods throughout the main common areas downstairs. The bedrooms are luxuriously appointed with John Robshaw textiles, vintage quilts, and down pillows. There are two Master suites, one upstairs and one downstairs, and both include double sinks and walk-in showers. You can cook a mean meal on the Wolf stove in the subway-tiled kitchen and, weather permitting, open up the wall of french doors between the kitchen and outside screened patio and mingle over some wine. Your kids can enjoy the park and pool only a few blocks away in the summer, the fenced backyard, or, if you need some quiet, you can situate them in an upstairs loft, which is stocked with books and a 32' LCD TV. The spacious living room downstairs includes a baby grande piano, gas fireplace on with a switch, comfortable seating, a 14' beamed ceiling, and a 42' LCD TV with HBO, Showtime, Longhorn channel, Pay-Per View and a whole host of other cable channels--it's a spacious and comfortable place to hang out after a fun day of soaking up Austin, or can be a lovely place to stretch and read a book as the sun pours in the huge windows that run along the whole front of this beautiful home.

My husband is a sixth generation native Texan -- and an Aggie. We have a mixed marriage, as I am the first generation child of Indian immigrant parents -- and a Longhorn (Hook 'Em Horns!). My husband and I are both attorneys (SMU and NYU respectively). We have been married 13+ years and built this house when our girls were itty bittys--our youngest was only four months old! Our initials and handprints are embedded in the concrete driveway.

Raman Gill purchased this house in 2008

We chose the lot because of the large trees, and proximity to the central business district, medical center, a nice park, premium grocery store, bars and restaurants. This home is on a gorgeous tree-lined street, just far enough away from main roads, yet we regularly walk to a bakery, pub, premium sushi restaurant, cool taco place, and upscale grocery store that has bands that play most weekends.

This is not just a vacation rental, this is our home. We only make this beautiful gem available to visitors when we are out of town for some special events, school holidays, and weekends. Most people who visit our home assume it's a remodel because we built it on 'pier and beam,' with a beautiful walk-up porch, and really tried to honor the craftsman/bungalow feeling prevalent in older homes in central Austin. However, this home is not old; we built it just four years ago, with all the comforts and amenities of a new, custom-built home.

So much good to say its hard to know where to start. Beautiful home that is as clean as it is pretty! Just minutes from nearly everything Austin has to offer. We stayed during one of the busiest weekends in Austin's history yet had no trouble getting around. We had 4 couples and all of us enjoyed the home and area. Stay here, you will be glad you did!

This house was fabulous! We were two families sharing and there was plenty of room. Our kids loved the swing set outside. Location was perfect. Short drive or walk to almost anything you'd need. Very modern and clean. Highly recommend this property! Thanks for everything!

Beautiful Home in an Awesome Location!

This home was perfect for our family's 4th of July trip to Austin. It easily accommodated our group of 6 adults, 3 young children, and an infant. The home was exactly as depicted, both in terms of amenities and location. It is very well cared for by the owners, who were pleasant to deal with and prompt in answering any questions we had. The neighborhood is awesome--it has a great community feel that is very Austin. It is located in the center of town, and there are plenty of restaurants (and Central Market) within walking distance. It is easy to get everywhere else by car. The screened in porch was very nice in the evenings, and the kids loved playing on the swing set in the good-sized backyard. We would highly recommend the home and plan to return!

What a lovely home

We loved our stay. The house was warm and inviting and looked just like the pictures.

I could just walk to most any place I needed to go. So conveniently located to local favorites. The owners really rolled out the red carpet with flowers, new miniature toiletries, plenty of recently purchased towels, and freshly ground Starbucks coffee upon arrival.
