Please note that nightly rates will vary for Special Weekends such as UT Graduation, ROT Rally, 4th of July, UT Home Football Games, SXSW and ACL.

* Condo is licensed for short term rental required by the City of Austin.

A+ location in the heart of downtown next door to Hilton Hotel & Austin Convention Center. 2 bedroom/2 bath condo with classy, comfortable furniture, granite counters, stainless steel appliances and comes fully furnished. This is my downtown Austin second home and it's walking distance to everything in the downtown area including Alamo Drafthouse Theaters, hundreds of restaurants & bars plus the pride of the city - Lady Bird Lake Hike & Bike Trail. The outside photos here are taken from our front door. One can literally walk across the street and be at the convention center. The location is in the heart of downtown!!!

Hotel rooms are small, stale, and boring. Plus, hotels add parking costs. Call around the hotels downtown and find this unit is much larger, a real home, and less $. Keep Austin Weird is the motto of this city so take an opportunity to live in a home-type setting while being in this great city! This is a 2 bedroom with queen beds and 2 full bathrooms plus a sleeper sofa in the living area so it can accommodate 6 adults. Living area has flat panel TV with full cable (about 75 channels) and WiFi access. No car is needed if you want a pedestrian friendly opportunity but if you rent a car, then secured/gated parking (1 car) is available on site. Sound proof windows added to bedrooms in October of 2012.

'We loved Austin & your Downtown place was perfect for walking to bars, restaurants and stuff to do. 4 of us came for a wedding and long weekend. I'd recommend it to anyone.' -Steve M. (Fort Worth)

'Classy condo, awesome location, cool city! Can't wait to make it back to Austin' -Jeff C. (LA)

'Had a blast for an all girls weekend! Downtown Austin is Hot!!!! We'll be back to stay in your place again.' Tanya M. (Tulsa)

'Perfect locale for attending convention as convention center was across the street. My family was able to tour and enjoy Austin while I attended a conference. I highly recommend this to anyone visiting Austin for business or vacation.' Rudy R. (Washington DC)

'The condo was wonderful. The location was perfect...I really miss the hike and bike trail and went down there for a few hours each morning. We miss Austin, and this place really let us enjoy our hometown to its fullest. In the heat of the day, we really enjoyed the TV...food channel and that crazy CashCab show! The directions you gave for check in and check out were very clear. We'll recommend this spot to others, and we'll definately look you up next time we come to visit. Hopefully, that will be soon.'

Take care,

Ellen

Hi,

I just wanted to let you know how well things turned out for us in Austin. The location for the stay was perfect, right in the 'hub bub', could walk most anywhere without difficulty. One of the things I liked best about the Condo, was that it was so clean and totally ready for us. I traveled with my 92 year Mom, so at best everything was difficult. She was able to have her own bedroom, next to the bathroom, so this worked out great. Also, she was able to have her own space and rest when necessary.

You have excellent taste in decorating, simple but elegant. It felt like 'home'.

Thank you again for everything, it all went very smoothly.

Hated the humidity, but everyone was so friendly and helpful. That doesn't happen in California. Everyone was just so nice.

Thanks Again,

Joyce W.

'Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your condo. The place was perfect. Our family of three came in to Austin from Cabo San Lucas so that I could have minor knee surgery. After the surgery, I needed to lay in bed for a couple of days to recover. The layout of the condo worked to perfection. With the full size kitchen we were able to stock up on groceries and not be forced to eat out every day. However when we did eat out, there were some of our favorite restaurants within walking distance. Also having the second bedroom allowed my family to sleep while allowing me enough space to keep my leg elevated while sleeping. We were also able to put our daughter to bed and stay up watching TV. If we were in a hotel room we would not have been able to do that without waking her up. We travel to Austin often to visit friends and family and your condo offers us a place of our own with lots of space and without the expense of a hotel. We will be booking again soon. Thanks again for everything.'

Downtown Austin, Texas Condo Jan. 25 through Jan. 29, 2017

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very nice and turned out to be exactly what was advertised on the VRBO website and exactly what we expected. The location was perfect for what we wanted to do which was check out the Austin music, restaurant and art scene for a few days. All the appliances that we used worked and there were adequate furnishings and kitchenware for the 4 of us. We do have one big issue though and for that reason must give 4 stars and not the full 5 which the property really does deserve.

A certain price for the condo was poster on the internet before any taxes, fees, deposits, etc. but we were charged about $41 more per night. An e-mail to property manager for an explanation for the higher fees went unanswered. When we arrived, the gate code number e-mailed to us by the property manager did not work on any of the three entrances and we could not get in. A phone call to her reached her inbox but it was full. A follow up text message to her also went unanswered. Thankfully, a resident saved the day for us and gave us his gate access code number and we got in. The condo door code number we were given and the parking gate fob both worked but if that resident had not given us his gate code number we would have been in bad shape. When we returned home there was an e-mail from the property manager with a different gate code number. The problem with that was, it arrived 5 hours after we had left home for Austin and we had no way to access our e-mail. Two other really minor items are that the information booklet in the condo could use a little updating and we found that the door on the east side of the parking garage was broken so that anyone who wanted in could do so although we never saw that happen.

This was our first VRBO experience. All in all it was a very good one and we anticipate using VRBO again sometime but because of the property manager's lack of communication regarding the difference in price and especially the wrong gate code number, we won’t likely rent any VRBO property managed by her.

Perfectly comfortable place in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We came to Austin for a friends Birthday party and wanted to be close to both his place and all the downtown action. This was great! Walk to good coffee places in the morning and blues at night! The apt was very comfortable and quite.

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Place was clean and decently stocked. Close to everything and relatively quiet. The shower head in the hall bath needs replacing is the only real issue. Everything else was great.

No complaints!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was in excellent condition and in a very convenient location. We had six girls staying in the condo for three nights and we were all comfortable with no complaints. We had trouble getting the TV to work the first day, the property manager and owner responded very quickly and even came over to get the problem solved. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Great downtown spot

Expect a little noise (not too bad though) staying in this awesome spot in downtown. Super quick walk to everything. Really clean and comfy with a nice decorative style.

The condo was exactly as pictured. It was very clean and had adequate towels.dishes & amenities. The location was excellent for restaurants, bars, walking lake etc. We would definitely rent this condo again in the future. Only negative: the sofa bed was NOT adequate and needs replacing. The mattress was thin, old and springs were pushing through on body parts!! It was extremely uncomfortable!! We closed up bed & had to put mattress on carpet to be able to sleep. It was NOT adequate for the 1 adult -least of all 2 adults sleeping together!! It should be replaced if you're advertising the condo sleeps 6 people! Otherwise, we were very pleased with our choice of your condo. Thank you!
