Blackshear-Prospect Hill House Rental Photos and Description

Modern, beautiful & spacious w/awesome outdoor hang space

Our East Austin place is beautiful, clean, spacious, and best of all located 1 mile from downtown and the famous 6th Street. Minutes from the UT Football Stadium and the Austin convention center. 10 minutes from the airport and only 5 miles to the beautiful Zilker Park.

The big paver/wood deck, pergola, firepit & string lighting make the perfect urban outdoor hang space!

The house boasts stained concrete floors and a beautiful modern kitchen with granite counter tops and all stainless appliances. New high quality hard wood floors cover the entire upstairs. Fenced in back yard is great for pets. Comfortable beds and many amenities you won’t find at a high dollar hotel.

Hang in Austin’s historic burgeoning Eastside where you’ll find eclectic bars and a variety of wonderful food. Less than a mile from the famous Franklin’s BBQ!

Why pay more and get less at a hotel?!?!?!

Everything you need

  • 4 of 5

Friendly home in the active east Austin neighborhood. All the amenities we needed, wi-fi connected, plenty of video options, the right balance of bathrooms to bedrooms, impressive modern kitchen that provides everything one would need. The front door lock is a bit too tricky to function... owner should replace and improve this.

Beautiful Home in up and coming neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful 3 bedroom home that was perfect for our girls' long weekend. We cooked a few meals and the kitchen had everything we needed. We did have some trouble with the door locking when we left the house that made us nervous but one of the owners came over and took a look after we requested they do so. I would recommend they take another look at the lock since multiple people have had trouble with it. The location was pretty good, except we ended up going out on the West side of town mostly (Warehouse District, Dirty 6th) so we had to get "Get Me" rides (since Lyft and Uber aren't working in Austin right now) frequently since we didn't have cars. There are some cool looking bars and restaurants on the East side of town though. I would also recommend using the site "Instacart" if you plan to get groceries. It's a grocery (and alcohol) delivery service and it was so much more convenient and probably about the same cost (if not cheaper) than getting a taxi to the store which was several miles away. The owners were super responsive every time I contacted them. I would definitely recommend this property to others.

Great Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

My extended family stayed in this property for two nights, and we had a great time. Being together as a family was much easier in a house than it would have been in two or three hotel rooms. We found the property as described, and very clean with no maintenance issues. I had a little bit of a problem getting into the house due to a new door lock, but a quick phone call resolved the issue. I also noticed they updated the check-in instructions that same day based on my experiences. THANK YOU for the recliner, it made my elderly father's trip more comfortable. Everything we needed was on hand and easy to find. The kitchen had all the basics, and a lovely sink - I'm jealous! The bedrooms were all comfortable, no one in the family reported trouble sleeping. The location is awesome. Eastside is a great, funky community. We loved driving around the neighborhood, and eating the awesome chicken/green mole/peach pizza at East Side Pies. As promised, downtown Austin was just a short car ride away. The house served as a great launchpad for our Austin adventures, and we couldn't be happier.
