About the property

Newly Constructed, Modern 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Upstairs Unit with Kitchenette

Want to be in the heart of South Austin? This location is for you. Just steps away from restaurants and shops on South 1st, South Congress and South Lamar. Stay in a quiet neighborhood in a newly built home with quick and easy access to all that Austin has to offer.

This is a beautiful, bright, modern, and comfortable private upstairs 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom unit with a small kitchenette. The larger bedroom has a king size bed, the other a queen. Each room has it's own private bathroom with toilet and sink, and they share a bathtub/shower. There's a cozy sitting area with access to DirecTV, with wireless internet throughout. The kitchenette has a Keurig coffee machine, microwave and small refrigerator/freezer.

Whether attending ACL Festival, SXSW, Formula 1, visiting the University of Texas, here for a great vacation or even for work, this location puts you within easy reach of all Austin has to offer.

If exploring Austin by foot is your thing, this is your location. The fun and eclectic South First neighborhood is our home with a number of great restaurants, food carts and local coffee houses within walking blocks. The vibrant and bustling South Congress (SoCo) district with shopping, bars and restaurants galore is a few blocks further away. Last (but not LEAST) South Lamar, also a short walk or ride away, is exploding with award winning restaurants. Let's not forget, we are also a short 20-30 minute walk to the heart of downtown, the hike and bike trail, Barton Springs, Zilker Park and Lady Bird Lake.

Bringing a car? Free street parking is plentiful. No car? No problem. We're a 15 minute drive from the airport and a short 5 minute ride to downtown using Uber, Lyft, Cars2Go and of course taxis for your convenience. Bike rental is also available in Austin just blocks from our home.

We are the owners and we live downstairs. Need suggestions or help? We're here to make your stay in Austin a great one.

Why Mike Krell chose Bouldin

This is the best location in Austin. Our brand new house has easy access to all Austin has to offer either by foot, bike, car or Uber. We are close enough to enjoy all the sites but located in a small, quiet, family neighborhood -- the best of all worlds.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was great meeting Mike and Dana. Austin was a lot of fun and the space was really nice. The room and bathroom were clean, bed was comfy, and I even joined them for a glass of wine upon my arrival!

Clean. Plenty of extras that made our stay feel like home. Quickly responsive hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Owners thought of everything that made our stay feel like home. We were granted an early check-in, and the door lock was so convenient. No keys to keep up with. The bedding was comfortable (king and queen). The jack-n-jill baths offered each room a private toilet and sink. Plenty of paper products (toilet paper, paper towels, Kleenex) as well as a Keurig with a sampling of coffee and creamer, along with face wipes, razor, shave gel, sunscreen, Advil, dish soap/sponge all made for a stay with the convenience of home. A map and tourist books were displayed on the coffee table, and the owners were quick to respond to questions about Austin City Limits festival expectations and transportation.

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one night, and the owners were very kind. The rental was located upstairs with a private entry. The room was kept exceptionally clean, and my daughter loved the books. Kitchen was small but served our purposes. The architecture of the home is quite inspiring. Great experience!

Fun architecture, clean, and fun neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Nice architecture, super clean, & fun location in a residential area of Austin that is being revitalized. Construction of property next door was a bit noisy.. We enjoyed being able to walk to nearby restaurants and appreciated the guide the owners left in the unit about restaurant recommendations. Unfortunately, the air conditioning went out during the night. Mike sent me a note in the morning and offered to refund to us some of the cost of our stay. Thank you Mike and Dana !
