About Karen Mal

I'm a part-time musician and full- time mother. I live in south Austin with my husband and daughter and our 20 chickens, 2 vegetable gardens, 2 dogs and 1 cat. I lived in my condo previously, for eight happy years, enjoying the convenience and bustle of being in central Austin, before moving south to live in 'the country'

Karen Mal purchased this condo in 2000

Perfect stay in Austin

  • 5 of 5

I found Karen's place exactly as advertised. She even gave me a tour of the neighborhood and dropped me off at the grocery store. The bus line was less than a block away. I could go anywhere conveniently. The condo had everything needed, bed was comfy, linens were brand new. Her place was spotless. It was very easy to book. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. A great place to stay for your visit to Austin

Pleasant and Fairly Priced Rental

  • 5 of 5

We loved the bed and the linens, and everything was very clean and well-kept. Karen was very flexible about our check in and check out times. Lots of windows so it gets plenty of light. Would definitely stay here again.

I felt as in my own house!

  • 5 of 5

This condo have been my place for a long time and now I miss every moment I stayed there.

The landlords are amazing and very kind.

The conditions were perfect with everything working.

The location is very good for almost all purposes and people that want to stay in Austin and near the UT.

the condo is very comfortable, has a beautiful view of the pool and is well lit and, at the same time, cozy.

Problems: Weak water in the sink and some times the noise from the laundry (when some machine is not working well over there).

Quiet condo near UT campus

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Karen's condo. The kitchen is spacious and clean and is equipped with everything I needed to cook with. We also walked to a great restaurant one night. Karen answered all our questions and even advised us on live music to hear in Austin. The location is very convenient to everything. We would stay here again.

Austin is a beautiful city that feels more like a big small town. It's both a capitol city, and home to one of the largest university campuses in the country, so it has a vibrancy that permeates the whole atmosphere. It has everything you want in a city: art, cinema, theatre, music, festivals, coffee shops, bookstores, amazing restaurants, ethnic food, and all sorts of independent and unusual stores. Austin is called the 'Live Music Capital of the world', and there is a great live, largely original, music scene 7 days a week. Austin is located right at the edge of the beautiful Texas Hill Country where Texas vineyards, Enchanted Rock, and great antique shopping are within range. We have mild weather in the winter, Barton Springs (the world's largest spring-fed pool) and boating on Lake Travis, plus Town Lake, which runs right through downtown. Austin is home to the world's largest urban bat population, and boasts more parks per capita than any other city in the country.

Other Activities: kayaking, canoeing, bat-watching, hiking, tex-mex food
