Overview

About the property

Off 6th St - 2-4 Bdrms + Office, 2 1/2 Baths, Sleeps 2-8, up to 6 non-related

Longer stays and smaller groups receive the best rates.

* If you do not need all 4 bedrooms, I simply lock one or two to keep your rate down.

You still have run of the house.

No one else will be there.

If you want the best rate, you can just rent upstairs and allow owner access to downstairs. Rarely does the owner need access, but will consider better rates in that case.

Just let me know your needs when making your inquiry so we can discuss the best rate for your group.

We had a wonderful time. More than once, Mom said it was the best birthday ever. Thank you for lending us the use of your lovely home. We love the West Lynn area and were happy to be within walking distance of some of our favorite spots.

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Deborah's home was amazing. Firstly, Debb is beyond lovely and welcoming and secondly, the home and it's location are both perfect. We had everything we needed to make our stay the most comfortable. The home was clean, quiet, and nicely decorated. All the essential amenities and more were provided for our use. The house is walking distance to restaurants and short drive to downtown. We couldn't have been happier. Thank you for a wonderful time!

Love this property!

  • 5 of 5

Owner leaves no stones unturned, very well managed property. The house is the coolest, up to date bedding, new gas stove I didn't get use 😔򕀬 and just a nicely remodeled older home. Owner is always a phone call away, told her I didn't want to write a good review because it would make it harder for me to rent next time. I couldn't do that to the owner as she was perfect and so was the property, honestly. For all of you who read this I have dibs on ACL second weekend for the next five years at least. The pictures really doesnt give the property justice. Huge porch in front of the house which is absolutely amazing and a perfect private backyard. Just can't wait to go back. Thank you so much Ms. D. Will call you soon.

Owner's Response: Great! It's always a treat for my guests and myself to return. YOU know what to expect regarding my fun accommodations and have your bearings for your next trip! 2016 will be the 9th year I have rented my home to vacationers and I have made quite a few good friends along the way. I am very pleased to hear you will be returning. I look forward to seeing you and your family again soon! : )

Great SXSW House

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect place to stay for SXSW. It was close enough for a cheap uber ride and far enough away to get outside the craziness. Deborah was such a great host brining us gifts at check in and willing to answer any questions. We loved the back patio too to enjoy wine in the afternoon and just have our morning coffee. Thanks for a great stay!

Owner's Response: It's wonderful to hear my guests enjoyed their stay! D'Peacock Vacation Home is definitely in the Heart of Austin, but in a desirable neighborhood on the edge of downtown. You will have the convenience of the location without being right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the center of downtown. We also have Ride Austin here which is a local, non-profit ride-sharing plan that also has an app. I like to make visitors aware, so they can save money while supporting local business.

* Location, location, location

* Wonderful, eclectic home in a safe, well-established historic neighborhood

* Ingredients for a fantastic stay in Austin!

* Please contact the owner directly to discuss rates and to reserve this

great house.

* Best rates for smaller groups and longer stays. I typically leave the house when rented.

* If you want an even better rate, just rent the upstairs.

* For an even better rate, rent the upstairs and allow me access to the house. More than likely I will not need access, but it would be nice on occasion.

The City of Austin cares about its residents and wants to insure that our communities are happy and peaceful. Therefore, they have enacted a rule that any more than 6 unrelated guests are a violation of City Code. My home's maximum capacity is 8 people. So if there are more than 6 guests, at least 2 of them must be related.

Other Activities: Shopping, Dining, Dancing, Music, Swimming, Hiking, Kayaking, Canoeing, Stand Up Paddle Board, Bicycling, Boating and much more.
