I've lived in Austin for 42 years,been involved in real estate brokerage and development, have four children as graduates of UT Austin and 4 grandchildren in Austin as well.

What a lovely spot to spend a month visiting family in Austin! This Tarrytown townhouse is close to the lake and perfectly situated for walking to parks, restaurants, coffee shops and markets as well as just enjoying the beautiful neighborhood. A quick drive puts you downtown with everything the city of Austin offers (and easy access to north and south Austin too) It is a 2 story townhouse with the master bedroom & bath, 2nd bedroom and laundry room on the upper level. The owner was great to work with & very responsive in addressing an unexpected mechanical issue. There are two outside decks & it’s nice to enjoy a breeze with the screened slider to the back deck. A great home base while in Austin!

Soooo Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights and this will be the first place I check every time I visit Austin. The minute you open the front door you just say "Wow!" Straight ahead is a glass wall that offers a view to a lovely back yard with a huge oak tree and an inviting deck. The shade from the trees and the warm wall colors and furnishings all make this rental feel like the coziest home you've ever been in. The kitchen is modern and clean; coffees and teas were provided as well as a bottle of wine! The upstairs was the same as downstairs...beautiful, warm furnishings/decor and a very nice, large bathroom. Windows were everywhere and the 2nd floor almost felt like living in a tree house due to the mature oak trees out the windows. Doug, the owner, welcomed us personally and couldn't have been nicer. Please consider yourself fortunate to have this home available to you for your time in Austin. The location is close to everything; you will wish you lived in this neighborhood and you will wish you didn't have to leave this house. Enjoy!

The perfect place to stay -- for a weekend or longer!

  • 5 of 5

My family lived here for six months while our home was being renovated. We loved it. The home was immaculate when we arrived and in wonderful shape. The beds were incredibly comfortable, the living area was bright and spacious, and the kitchen was well stocked. We would highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking to come to Austin for a weekend, or for many months! It is just minutes from downtown, Zilker park, and many restaurants.

Our family recently took advantage of this wonderful accommodation when we visited Austin for the U-T graduation for our son & his fiancé. Cannot say enough about the excellent area; access to downtown, waterfront and U-T campus..not to mention the absolutely gorgeous home away from home ( in fact my husband had to admit, in some cases, BETTER than our own home!!). Doug was the consummate host, everything was as advertised...and then some! Will definitely recommend to anyone looking for affordable luxury in Austin

THANKS again Doug!

Wonderful vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We are just winding down a three month winter/spring stay at this great vacation rental. This is a lovely, nicely furnished, turnkey duplex. The neighborhood is very nice, a block from the river. You can walk to a couple of coffee shops, restaurants, post office, library. It is great neighborhood for walking, running, biking, close to Lady Bird Lake and its paths. The pictures depict quite accurately what the rooms look like. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone. In fact, we plan to come back next winter. It is two floors which might limit it for anyone with disabilities.
