About Paprika Leaverton

Welcome to The SoLa Lodge, the hip, cool house close to everything.

The Sola Lodge is located in a great Location in the upscale Zilker Neighborhood close to SoLa or South Lamar Business District. Shopping, bars, cafes and more are just moments out the door, easy walking distance to so many wonderful places. Restaurant Row is about 1 mile and Barton Springs and Zilker Park is in the same neighborhood.

Inside the house, unique ceiling fans and beautiful bamboo floors await you. Walk to Shops, Food, Movies (Alamo Drafthouse) Music and more! Pubs and music walking distance.

The house is beautifully decorated..with 2 queen and 2 XL twin beds that are new, comfy and perfect for families or groups. The twins are great for adults too because they are extra long.

I love this house and location. And I hope you come and visit and see what I mean. I take great care of the house and have a high standard in cleanliness and maintenance.

With a fully furnished kitchen, concrete counters, dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven and new dishes, pots and pans, you will find yourself ready to cook. Just bring food.

It's special for me to have a wonderfully furnished home that I can share with many people. So come on out, it would be great to have you here at the Kinney Ave. House.

Paprika Leaverton purchased this house in 2009

Great Cozy Place

  • 4 of 5

We recently had five friends al gather in Austin for a birthday celecbration and stayed at the SoLa Lodge. The location was an easy cab/Uber ride to anywhere within Austin. There are some great restaurants nearby you can walk easily to and enjoy. We stayed for four days and three nights and it totally met our expections.

Enjoyed the Sola Lodge!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful clean house, close to so many great shops, cafes, bars. Zilker Park is so close too and we had a great time at the Barton Springs. The kids played on the playscape and we went for a ride on the train called the Zephyr around the park. Austin is wonderful. Thanks for the great place to stay!

Great Location Could Use Some Updates

  • 3 of 5

The location was great, a short walk to many activities including shopping and dining. And everything else is just an Uber or cab away. Safe neighborhood as well. There was plenty of room, the kitchen was lovely and the home was nicely decorated. Two bathrooms definitely helped for 5 girls on a trip.

A couple of suggestions for improvements. Consider purchasing new pillows. The ones provided all felt "dead" with no support at all. There were also signs posted everywhere detailing exact expectations the homeowners had for their visitors (in what might be construed as a bit of a condescending tone) but those could also use an update. Often times they indicated things were available that weren't. Like face wipes and spare sheets. In addition, perhaps get your cleaning crew to make sure and launder the spare blanket in the front room closet. We tried to use it for the person sleeping on the sofa but it was clearly dirty.

Alan was great though and very responsive in communication. We couldn't figure out how to work the TV and he offered to send someone over right away. Since we were out, we opted not to worry about it. We hadn't gone to Austin to watch TV anyway. Regardless, I believe the home is a solid find and the owners care about their visitors. I have no doubt with some spot checking of their cleaning crew's efforts and updating the pillows that this would become a five star rating.

My guess in judging by the other stellar ratings is that we caught them on an off week.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed the location. It is walking distance to so many great areas. We have updated pillows and triple checked on cleaning. I have a new crew cleaning now and new management and a concierge service so its very nice and all is updated. It's called the Renter's Club and they will take great care of you. Check this out and know you will have access to whatever you need 24 hours a day. The Sola Lodge is close to Zilker Park and Barton Springs as well as the beautiful greenbelt. Great place!

it's in 78704, that should be enough :) But in case it isn't...this house is a perfect launch pad to see what Austin is truly all about. Some of our favorite restaurants, bars, and ice cream shops are less than a block away! The Black Sheep Lodge, El Mason Mexican, Barley Swine (as seen on TV!) and Lick ice creamery are just around the corner. Also, OPA wine bar, Olivias (awesome brunch!), and the famous Horseshoe Lounge. No landline phone available at house.
