You may opt for a refundable security deposit as an alternative to the Vacation Rental Damage Protection ($49 covers up to $3000 of accidental damage). If you'd prefer the security deposit, please request the change in your reservation notes.

Urban Homestead boasts historic Texas architecture and chic fine-furnishings. The owner, a photographer, has bestowed the home with a gorgeous, artistic, and unique style. Once you've stepped beyond the large front porch and through the front door, you'll be blown away by this beautifully renovated home with 12 foot ceilings.

In the main house there are two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with two twin beds. The main bathroom is large, with a separate shower and jetted bathtub. There is also a very small utility half bath in the laundry room.

The large living room features a built in office/desk area, large flat screen TV and record player. The living room and kitchen open out onto a cedar screened in porch - which feels like an additional living area. Enjoy the Texas breeze without the Texas bugs!

Out back is a separate studio bedroom with a full bed, as well as a newly added full bathroom! The private, romantic studio features huge vaulted ceilings with incredible windows, and a stunning antique chandelier.

This home offers the best of South Austin, in style and location. You're equally close here to South Congress and South Lamar, and it's just a quick drive down South 1st street to downtown.

*There are also 4 cruiser bikes at the property you are welcome to use**

Easy access to/from the airport, and is close to the grocery store as well as many bars and restaurants.

Make your reservation, and then make yourself at home.

Pets are welcome at this property, but please discuss with us and obtain approval before making your reservation, as there are some restrictions and rules.

A courtesy pack & play and high chair are available upon request.

Please note, we do NOT advertise on Craigslist. If you see photos & a description matching this property on Craigslist, it is a scam.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall we had a great stay at the Urban Homestead. It's a really nice home, beautifully decorated, and in a great location. However, there was a serious bug problem in the kitchen. Also, there are a few quirks associated with the house being an older property. For example, the front bedroom door does not latch. But overall it's a great property; even better if the bugs were taken care of.

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry to hear about bugs Jillian! This is a new development - we'll of course have pest control out to take care of any issues right away. Thank you for the feedback!

The house is the perfect Austin style and within walking distance of South 1st and only a few minutes from South Congress. The decor is the ultimate in Austin, Texas chic. There are two bedrooms in the main house. One with a queen bed and one with two twin beds. The main house has 1.5 baths. A great kitchen and lovely screened in cedar porch. The porch is great for your morning coffee or evening night caps. In addition to the main house there is an efficiency just a few steps away with a queen bed and another full bath.
