If you have a large group visiting UT for games or downtown Austin this 6BR/3BA super-luxury home is the finest option available. It is within 5 blocks of all UT stadiums (UT baseball, UT basketball, UT football, UT softball and UT swimming). Nothing spared in the construction of this Estate, from the gourmet kitchen to the 100% sucupira-floored living spaces and the designer bathrooms. There is even a putting green in the back yard! It is in one of the best locations to enjoy Austin. Franklin's BBQ is just steps from the front door, voted best BBQ in the nation.

This beautiful home has everything needed for a luxurious stay with stained wood trim and columns, an artist-designed chandelier above the dining room table and gorgeous unobstructed views of the State Capitol and Downtown. There are three living areas, four covered porches with ceiling fans, and a wet bar on the third floor. The kitchen features two large sinks and an AGA cooker and range that includes 4 ovens and a toaster all in one.

The master bedroom features a flat panel tv, vaulted ceilings and a private covered patio with fantastic downtown views. The master bathroom has a steam shower and huge garden bathtub. There is an in-unit washer and dryer and the house is equipped with WiFi, cable TV and 4 security cameras. The house is perfect for families or large groups and has a large closet for use and a 2-car garage and covered parking.

The first floor has one bedroom with a queen-size bed and living room with a queen-size pull out couch sleeper. The second floor is home to the master bedroom which has a king-size bed and three additional bedrooms, each with one queen-size bed. The third floor also has a small lock-off with 1 full bed(not a full bedroom but is a separate sleeping area with door approx 8'x20'). The private 3rd floor has a couch, TV, fireplace and a balcony with plenty of seating and downtown views.

One of the finest houses in downtown Austin, the property is 2 blocks to the Frank Erwin Center, the UT Football Stadium and the UT baseball stadium. Up and coming Rainey Street is just minutes South of the house and is lined with eateries and bars such as the Javalina Bar and Lustre Pearl. The East Side Cafe and other popular eateries on the Manor Restaurant Row are just minutes North of the home. When you arrive you will be greeted by a welcome basket of goodies- making your stay even more enjoyable.

The house was beautiful and spacious.

  • 5 of 5

Overall the house was great. The homeowner Brooks was more than helpful. Very spacious house in a great area to get around the popular parts of the city. We had a group of 16 guys for and with the pull out beds, couches, and blow up mattresses it worked well.

Amazing house!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was spectacular! It was huge, cozy, well-decorated, and perfect for 18 girls. While not everyone had a bed, there was an extra air mattress and sheets (slept 2). The kitchen was gorgeous, the AC worked the whole time, and it was just all-around really really beautiful.

Best part: Master Bathroom! It was HUGE. It was so great to all get ready together in one space (literally, 18 of us could fit in it..)

Only downside? Pricey!! We likely could have stayed in hotel rooms for much less per person per night, but it wouldn't have had the same feel - we loved all being together.

Throughly enjoyed staying at this house

  • 5 of 5

Throughly enjoyed staying at this house in Austin. We rented this property while we were in town for our son's graduation. It was a great house. Our family coming in from different cities were able to spend more time together by being able to stay in the same place. Lovely decor, large rooms, comfortable beds, and several outdoor spaces with wonderful views for enjoying meal or a glas of wine made our stay even more enjoyable. It was clean with plenty of towels, extra bedding, a fully stocked kitchen, and a washer and dryer. Walking distance to the university, and a short drive to stores, and 6th street made our stay stress free as we weren't spending a lot of time in traffic.

Amazing place and perfect for big groups

  • 5 of 5

The stay was awesome. I threw a bachelor party and had all of our friends come. There was more than enough room for 15 people and Brooks was very helpful with any questions. The location wasn't too close to 6th, but also not too far. It's about a 15-20 min walk, which wasn't a big deal. I'd highly recommend this place (and already have) for anyone wanting to do ATX with a large group.
