Walk to Downtown Austin, good eats and great watering holes. Whether you are visiting family or in town for business and/or pleasure, your Austin accommodations have never been so convenient and comfortable...

This home features two bedrooms, two bathrooms, 1,515 square feet and was originally built in 1902. It was completely remodeled in 2009. It was designed to maintain its old world charm while providing modern day amenities. This home is one block east of downtown Austin. It is bright and airy with ten foot ceilings throughout, vaulted ceilings in the master bedroom and many windows for natural lighting. A mere five blocks away from Austin’s famous Sixth Street entertainment district and within walking distance to fine dining, coffee houses and art galleries, it’s easy to say that this home is in a fantastic location. Did we mention that the University of Texas at Austin is a short 1.5 mile jaunt where you can enjoy all of UT’s athletic events? If you are coming to Austin for a convention, you’re in luck! This home is a short five minute walk to the convention center.

Take in a view of the downtown skyline from the living, dining, kitchen or back porch, enjoy the private back yard equipped with a bar on the back covered deck or take a bike ride, walk or short taxi ride to all the fun that Austin offers on a daily basis. There are so many amazing restaurants in our little neighborhood that you will not go hungry or thirty. Fabulous coffee, wine, beer, pizza and other yummy food awaits you! However you decide to spend your time in Austin, the charm of the home and special location will guarantee a fabulous experience.

The home is located in an eclectic neighborhood. This area immediately east of downtown Austin is home to many local artists, musicians, unique establishments and renovation projects. There is a church across the street and many long time residents on the block. All the neighbors are wonderful and friendly. If you are looking for a “Leave It to Beaver” neighborhood, this may not be for you. If you are noise sensitive, you should know that this house is just half a block from I35. From the master bedroom, you will hear the traffic at a low level. Bring your ear plugs if that might bother you! If you are looking for an enchanting dwelling with close proximity to everything Austin has to offer, this is definitely the place!

At this time, this property does not allow pets. If you are in need of a pet friendly property please let us know and we'd be happy to make some recommendations.

A courtesy high chair and Pack & Play are available upon request

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a wonderful home! Clean, comfortable, and recently designed and decorated. Perfect walking distance for those who want to be downtown but also close to all the cooler restaurants and bars in East Austin. Cristina was great. She called to check in on how we were enjoying and also offered up local spots to eat at.

Reviewer Comments:

The house we stayed in was filled with amenities that you just wouldn't get if you stayed in a hotel. Also, the location is prime! In a quiet neighborhood literally a few blocks away from a lot of awesome Austin action... would definitely stay again and/or suggest to others!

Reviewer Comments:

Our experience was smooth and easy. Cristina and Brooke looked after us, and everything was pretty clear. Communications were prompt and helpful. Amy even helped us figure out the tv, when she popped in to drop off some supplies, and gave us some great advice about Austin in general. We were here for NI Week 2017, so a brisk 10 minute walk was all it took for us to "commute" to our conference. The house was very spacious, and in excellent condition. They have done a great job with the place, and everything about the house was 1st class! We spent most of our time in Downtown Austin, but when we were here, it was more of homely place to come back to rather than a plain hotel. Thanks again. Will definitely consider this place again for future conferences!

Very clean, updated spacious home. Very convenient location for downtown Austin activities. Best stocked rental property I have ever stayed in- toiletries, paper products, basic kitchen cooking items. There was only a French press for coffee so we inquired about a coffee maker as we drink Lots of coffee and property management delivered one immediately. Highly recommend this home.

Great location and value. No issues during our stay and an easy walk to convention center (though a bit disconcerting to walk late at night as you are far from the crowds). Would stay again. Thanks!

We had an amazing experience in the house. It was clean and beautifully kept and very close to downtown/Rainey Street. Brooke from Emerson Guest Properties was very responsive with all our requests and was even able to accommodate a last minute late check out due to our delayed flight. I couldn't have asked for a better stay and would definitely use Emerson again.
