About Blakely

I live and work in Austin and love the city and our community.

Blakely purchased this condo in 2006

Why Blakely chose East Riverside - Oltorf

It is close to downtown and we have great neighbors. The property was built in 1980 so it has that Melrose effect.

What makes this condo unique

It is my first place I remodeled and it is a special place. It is close to downtown, my neighbors are great and I am grateful for each guest that I get to share my place with!

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 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.

Wonderful.! Easy to find, close to everything you want to do in Austin

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly situated close enough to downtown, yet far enough away to not be bothered by the distractions of a big city. The condo had all the comforts of home for our family of 4. From a fully equipped kitchen to plenty of square footage for us to be comfortable after spending time exploring all that Austin has to offer. We took in sightseeing of downtown. Visited the bat bridge, cooper's pit BBQ, University of Texas campus, as well as the Texas state capital. We also visited the Oasis on Lake Travis, which being located on southshore made this a easy evening trip. Highly recommend staying at this location and will explore staying here again in the future.

Awesome Property!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is spacious, inviting, and equipped with anything you might want for a getaway weekend or week long visit to the Austin area. The location provides very easy access to get to any part of the Austin area you might like. This unit backs up to the Colorado river and if you take a short walk around the side of the building you will find yourself on a huge foot path that is situated right along the river. I would absolutely stay at this condo again if I find myself in this area in need of a place.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Great location, shared front patio / deck are beyond lovely. Large, well stocked kitcken. Noisy upstairs neighbors and a ceiling fan in the first bedroom that wouldn't seem to stay on overnight though. It was a great, secure place, but I don't know if I would stay again (mostly due to the noisy neighbors, who likely come and go and who the host has no control over).

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had our girls bachelorette weekend here and it was perfect! There was enough space to have our own rooms/bathroom and spread out and enjoy brunch in the living area. The gorgeous river is right out back and the place is so close to virtually everything. It felt like a get away yet the City was so close too. I would stay here again.
