Guestbook comments from the owner

Adorable place, beautiful setting, and very well-appointed. The only downside is there happened to be a lot of construction-y activities going on outside while we were there, so it was not exactly a serene and peaceful experience each morning and throughout the day but I'm sure that's not the norm and it won't stop us from booking it again when we come back to Austin. The condo is within minutes of downtown, and most importantly for us, South Congress and 6th Street (wonderful restaurants and boutique shopping). Favorite places we found to eat included Vespaio on South Congress and Clark's Oyster Bar on 6th (as well as its mother restaurant, Perla, on South Congress). We also had some of the best middle-eastern food I've ever eaten at the food truck, Abo Youssef (delivered to the condo via Grubhub.com). And don't miss Amy's Ice Cream on South Congress--to die for, and they're open late. The Continental Club on S. Congress was our go-to music venue for this trip. (Yes, you can find pretty much everything on South Congress!). Everyone came in on different days, so there was a lot of driving back and forth to the airport, which was a snap--15 minutes, on average.

Fabulous!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend in Ausin over Memorial Day weekend. The condo was perfect for 2 couples. The 2 bedrooms and 2 baths were set up very nice. The kitchen had everything you need. The location was perfect to downtown and easy access to I-35. Overall, we loved it. We would use that unit again.

Stop Looking...

  • 5 of 5

If you are scrolling through the Austin properties searching for the perfect property for your stay, stop looking! You just found it. This place is the right size for your stay in Austin with friends or family. The owners have left no detail to chance. The kitchen is fully equipped with glassware, silverware etc. anything you need to enjoy eating in. The living area is nicely decorated and oh so comfortable (the pictures do not do it justice). The French doors open to a little deck that over looks a creek and a wooden area. You are steps away from the most beautiful walking and biking path in Austin. The condo was very clean and the beds were so comfortable (my personal requirement for a good stay). The neighborhood is quiet and the pool is practically outside your front door. Even little details like shampoo, toothpaste and a hair dryer were not overlooked. We felt so safe as the complex is gated and well kept up. Our first day in Austin it rained but we didn't care because the condo was the perfect place to hang out and chill. Books and games were provided and plenty of tvs. The place is really close to all the action. We rented a car and could drive easily to downtown or the Barton Springs area in about ten minutes. We appreciated the keyless entry and the two bathrooms.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

the location was perfect and the condo was very nice. We were still close to all the good eats and shopping but yet away form all the hassle and bustle. Porch view was so relaxing couldn't have asked for a better stay. Will defiantly be staying here in the future. I felt at home and that's what I look for when on a getaway trip.

A photographer/walker's dream!!!

  • 5 of 5

Such a wonderful condo to SEE the city...literally. Located directly on the Lady Bird Lake with easy access to the awesome Austin Boardwalk, your day is made with walks into the city, unlimited photo opts of the skyline, crew teams at work on the water, kayaks, and more! If you love the outdoors, this is the place to stay!!! The condo itself is beautiful and resort-like in all aspects of a vacation stay. Hands down, this is the best place we've stayed in Austin...including the fine hotels downtown. Tucked right along East Riverside, the city is at your fingertips...
