Austin House Rental Photos and Description

Comfortable 2/1 home in Barton Hills! Great patio, comfy king and queen beds.

Welcome to The Austinite Unit A!

Being just 3 miles from downtown and the convention center, 20 minutes from the Circuit of the Americas, and 1.5 miles to Barton Springs, Zilker park and just two blocks from an entrance to The Barton Creek Greenbelt, this is the ideal spot for an Austin getaway or a business trip.

You're also only a block off of S. Lamar Blvd and several of Austin's favorite places to eat and drink! Kerbey Lane Cafe, East Side King, Gourdough's Public House, The Juice Box, Baker's Street Pub, Torchy's Tacos...just to name a few.

The house has bamboo floors and shower/tub combo in the bathroom, king in the larger bedroom, queen in the second bedroom, great patio with fabulous lighting, sunset views and also a propane grill.

There's high speed wireless internet. We do NOT have cable TV. However we do have an AppleTV connected to our NetFlix account for your enjoyment! You can also log into your own iTunes account and access any of your own content. Or use AirPlay to stream to the TV from your Apple devices.

We have a record player with a diverse record collection that you're more than welcome to take for a spin! Plus, a fabulous cocktail recipe book and vintage shaker set. Try some new libations and let us know if you stumble onto a new favorite! The patio is a fabulous spot to enjoy a drink.

The Austinite also has a back unit, which has a private hot tub. That is HA# 326996. Also can be rented all as one property if you have a larger group coming. But the hot tub is for the use of that unit - not this one.

This property is licensed with the City of Austin and we do collect and pay the Hotel Occupancy Tax. We recommend only renting properties who are registered with the city. Avoid the scams out there!

About Jay Reynolds

I'm a life-long Austinite and that is definitely part of the reason I choose to call this property The Austinite! I grew up about a mile or so from this property and am thrilled to call Barton Hills my home.

Jay Reynolds purchased this house in 2013

Why Jay Reynolds chose Austin

This property encompasses so much of what makes Austin awesome. You can walk and bike to dozens of restaurants, Zilker Park and The Barton Creek Greenbelt!

What makes this house unique

We have two other rental units that actually share a driveway so if you have a larger group we can definitely accommodate!

I do not reccomend staying at this property

  • 1 of 5

We booked three nights at this property for our stay in Austin during Thanksgiving. The interior of the property was very nice and as advertised in the photos. Unfortunately, the next door neighbors had a loud party on Wednesday night after we arrived and had an even louder party on Thursday night. It was so loud and so late that we had to call the police. Fortunately, our 6 month old daughter slept through the noise, but it was impossible for my wife or I to sleep. I am familiar with the neighborhood , and I was very surprised to encounter that kind of behavior in a quiet area that is full of young families. The situation was such that we decided to leave Friday even though we had booked the place through Saturday. I will not stay at this property again because I am concerned about the level of noise the next door neighbors would make.

Wonderful! Would stay here again!

The property was even better than it was advertised. It was very clean, quiet and in a wonderful location - near everything! We spend most of our time downtown Austin at the Convention Center and the location as perfect. Much better than staying in a hotel!

Very charming house and great Patio

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this sweet two bedroom home. The decor was sharp and the house was well appointed. We cooked some and found everything we needed in the kitchen, including two ways to make coffee and coffee was there too!

The location is quiet but close to lots of good restaurants and places of interest.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words and we're so happy you enjoyed The Austinite Unit A! Next time you come, maybe you can check out the back unit and have the bamboo-enclosed hot tub to go with it! Safe travels, Jay Reynolds VacationCake Rentals

This duplex is great! I have stayed in both units (A in the front, and B in the back, with the hot tub!!), and really enjoyed my stays in both. They are really fantastically decorated, well-stocked, perfectly located, and the neighbors are super awesome. I loved using the record player, and the patio was a perfect place to drink my coffee in the morning. I walked to south Lamar several times to eat - walking or driving there are really great places to eat and drink just minutes away! I plan to rent both units together for a family gathering next year, and I can't wait! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Austin - for work or play.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the kind words and glad you enjoyed your trip to ACL! It's little bit of a hike down to the park so next time we'll help you get bikes arranged - it's a very pleasant ride and there's great bike parking down at the fest! Thanks again for the business and come see us again sometime soon! -Jay

Beautiful Home, Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a great duplex just a block from S. Lamar, in a great neighborhood and crazy close to downtown and South Congress. The beds are extremely comfy - I slept better than I have in ages. And the patio is lovely; definitely take some time to enjoy a cup of coffee out there! Jay will bend over backwards to make your stay enjoyable - and follow his advice on food recommendations. I loved my stay here, and I am pretty sure you will too.
