About Blakely

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

Blakely purchased this condo in 2006

Why Blakely chose Austin

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.

good location

  • 5 of 5

Went with family. Enjoyed the boardwalk, restaurants near by. Also used the pool.

Have to ride into Austin, but only a short cab ride.

Condo was a comfortable 2 bedroom with a porch.

Quiet with great running, yet close to downtown

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed being able to cook Thanksgiving dinner here. The kitchen is well-appointed with just about everything needed to cook with. The decor is comforting and everything is clean and well taken care of. Being on Lady Bird Lake allowed for scenic walks and runs around the lake and one day we rented bikes. We will have to return for kayaking, which we never got around to doing.

It would be possible to have a quiet stay here and never explore Austin, but it is also just minutes from downtown and South Congress, where there are many good restaurants. We enjoyed the city as well.

Overall, a great stay and we would return.

Perfect location in a city with everything

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, clean property located on the river. The property has everything one could need from coffeemaker to washing machine and dryer.

The area has many things to offer including a nice boardwalk/riverside trail for a walk, run of cycle. It is a short walk to some fabulous food trucks offering everything from Churros to Korean/Mexican food combinations. Across the street is a great pizza, some coffee and a 7-11. There is a good sports bar on the corner should you like that sort of spot. There is a bus stop a short walk that can get you to down town in less than 10 minute for only $1.25 one way.

Would definitely book again if the situation arises.
