My name is Alan and I am a true Austinite. Artist, photographer and of course a musician, (classical violin and guitar) I attended parochial school here in Austin, Then moved on to the School of my Grandfather,and Father. The University of Texas here in Austin Tx.
Alan purchased this House in 1950
Why Alan chose Bouldin
A family owned property from one of Austins first settling families. You can't get any closer to the middle of it all. Any and all convention or music. Next to down town. Next to ACL fest. Next to Auditorium Shores. Next to Town Lake(Lady Bird Lake). Next to the Long Center, the Palmer Center, Zilker park, Congress Ave. That is all less than a mile away. Sixth ST, the Capitol, the Convention Center, the Warehouse district, Whole Foods (HQ and store) The list goes on and on, and all just one mile away.
What makes this House unique
The property backs up to the Green belt with hiking trails and a dry (sometimes wet) creek, . Less than a mile and walk-able to an abundance of restaurants all with outdoor patios and some with live music. The famous Saxon Pub is just a mile away with great live music every single night ( Always a good place to spot celebrities ). The world famous Continental Club also a mile away. But wait! There's more. The mother ship of over priced veggies, Whole Foods is only one mile away.

Great location and cozy house!
Warm Austin feel. Owner was helpful and seemed to think of everything. Will definitely recommend!
We enjoyed our stay in Austin, the house is located in a great location. Alan is a great host and allowed us to bring our small dogs along. We hope to stay here again.
Great place. Close to everything in Austin. Most you can walk to. Great neighborhood. Alan was a good host and provided everything we needed. Will stay there again.

Dirty, poor maintenence and security concerns
Let's start with the good things. We liked the location. Close to restaurants, downtown and the greenway, but also quiet and neighborhood-like. The house is actually kind of charming if you can get past the cleanliness and maintenance issues. Beds were comfortable. Alan communicated proactively before our arrival and promptly processed our security deposit.
On the negative side, the pictures far over-state the condition of the home. It is an old house (which is normally great for us), but is suffering from lack of maintenance and poor cleaning. The bathtub was both dirty and had grout mold. The toilet and bathroom sink was not clean. Surfaces and floors were barely clean. The cute front porch was covered in leaves, debris, and a dirty towel. We had to totally clean the bathroom and porch upon arrival. Alan let us know that he is cleaning the place instead of using professional cleaners and that explained a lot. I recommended that he go back to a professional cleaning crew.
I was also concerned about security. The front door lock is an internal lock (not an exterior door lock) and it worked poorly. The side door (main door) did have a proper lock, but I speculate that the code was not updated between visitors.
Great location to walk Austin!
We spent a long weekend at this house and it really met our needs. Two large bedrooms, nice open floor plan, Google Fiber for TV and WiFi, kitchen and bath with all the needs met. The neighborhood is great, almost always people out walking, running, and biking, and we had plenty of off-street parking. We walked to restaurants and food trucks on Barton Springs Road, SoCo, 1st Street, and also to the Statesman Bridge to watch the bats, plus across the river to the capital. We left our little dog at the house when she was tired of walking and she was really comfortable on Alan's couches. I enjoyed the Keurig for morning coffee. We had fun, look forward to visiting again!
Great location - Can't wait to go back!!!
Alan is very friendly and helpful. House is exactly as described. We loved it, very comfortable, superb location. Highly recommend it. Will definitely rent again.
Bouldin Creek, located on the other side of the lake from downtown Austin. The historic nature of the neighborhood and eccentricity of its residents mean it will always be a little bit different. For those who doubt the 'weirdness' of South Austin, look no further. Our home is on 3/4 of an acre surrounded by live oak trees, with two side wooded areas. The neighbors are a few lots over from the house, they will not be right next to you. The house is also up from the street.
