great property and location

  • 4 of 5

This is a great place to stay near Austin, 6th Street, and UT, especially the football stadium. There are beds for everyone, tons of space to sleep. Instructions are very clear and Amber is responsive and efficient. The downstairs bedrooms are fairly bright and open, much quieter spaces are upstairs. The location is very convenient and we didn't need to rent a car, Lyft is everywhere.

Incredible House, Incredible Service, Incredible Celebration

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house for a Bachelorette Party and the location was great as it was walking distance to downtown as well as several eateries. The house was beautiful! We had plenty of room and the amenities were more than expected. Amber was absolutely amazing. She was great with giving suggestions and was very responsive with any questions that arose. I would HIGHLY recommend this property to anyone thinking about visiting Austin.

The Sweet Spot

  • 5 of 5

I came into town with 8 of my closest buddies and the house let us get all over town easily, slept the masses in seperate cozy beds and let us hang out catching up to the wee hours of the morning comfortably.

**expect to be the last down and first one up if your in one of the 2 downstairs bedrooms, they are somewhat open

About Amber Barnett

My name is Amber Barnett, I am the property manager of all three of the Artale's vacation rentals. I was born and raised in Austin, so I have watched our city grow tremendously over the years. I lived in New York City for 4 years and that was an amazing experience, but there is something special about Austin's laid back lifestyle that brought me home. I love this city and look forward to assisting you with your vacation. Please let me know if you need any suggestions on restaurants, bars, activities, shopping and more!

Amber Barnett purchased this house in 2006

Why Amber Barnett chose East Downtown

Our 3 vacation homes are located in the heart of Austin. Keep in mind these are big houses and NOT A CONDO! It is rare that you will find big vacation rental houses this close to downtown. This house has a special place in my heart because my bachelorette party was here and I stayed here on my wedding weekend!

The area is known for its eclectic patio bars, authentic taco stands, music, food and abundance of bicycles, East Austin is a hip hodgepodge of culture. This vibrant community is home to many types of people from artists and musicians to business owners.

We do not allow parties at our home. There will also be a 3% handling fee charged to all bookings. If you book, prior to getting quoted there will be a 3% charge.

What makes this house unique

This house was originally built in 1910, and was the home to the First African American Lawyer in Austin! It is located across from the French Legation Museum, which is where the French settled when arriving in Austin. The view from the second floor is to die for! You can see the whole Austin skyline night or day! The walk to downtown is just minutes away, or head over to East 6th Street and enjoy the eclectic bars and food trailers!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dennis and I appreciate your review! We both work very hard to exceed every guests expectations. With reviews like yours puts a big smile on our faces kowing

that a clean, comfortable and organized house helped complete your vacation time in our city.

In return thank you and your group for respecting our property, respecting our neighbors and for leaving our home as if no one had been there! :)

Come back to see us anytime! Lillie and Dennis
