Welcome to East Austin! You'll love the premier location, updated design, tranquil setting, and an all-around easy going experience! Premier Location! 1 mile from UT Austin and 2 miles from the Convention Center. Blocks away from chill bars and restaurants, like Salty Sow, Dai Due, and Butterfly Bar. Perfect for weekend getaways and events like ACL, F1, and SXSW.
Perks, extras and amenities include a full kitchen, washer/dryer, desk for workspace, coffee machine, hair dryer, ironing board, shampoos and conditioners, etc. The space is perfect for small groups visiting Austin, planning on taking in all the food, drinks, and activities the town has to offer. The house is walking distance to several clusters of restaurants. Head toward north to Manor Road for Mi Madre's, El Chilito, Dia Due, Unit D, Haymaker, Salty Sow, and several bars for nightcaps. Head up to MLK and Chicon for a bite at Austin Daily Press. They'll even deliver your food to you at the bar next door -- The Wheel. Head west to Quickie Pickie, Hillside Farmacy, Blue Dahlia, or Micklethwait for beer, wine, and tons of options. Those lists don’t touch East 7th or East 6th streets, which are a 8 minute bike ride or short ride share away.
Our immediate neighborhood is quiet and full of a lovely mix of people -- young, old, families, new transplants, and old ATX lifers. There is a small park on the corner and a basketball court about a half mile away. You can walk or jog over to the Boggy Creek greenbelt (about .75 miles) and jump onto 2 miles of path. Alternately, walk around the neighborhood (sidewalks are sporadic, but most of the the streets are very wide). You'll get a true "local" experience but with a ton of conveniences.
The house is 15 minutes from the airport and 5-10 minutes from downtown. There are always many Car2gos around and a city bike station about 1 mile away. There is ample street parking if you choose to rent a car or drive in, but we would recommend using ride sharing for getting around -- they're usually cheaper than a taxi!
