Austin House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

Music lovers - and those looking to explore the city - will appreciate this modern 3-bedroom, 2-bath home belonging to a music industry executive. Original music memorabilia, including signed posters, gold records, and more, are a fitting welcome you to the Live Music Capitol of the World!

Restored and remodeled, this vacation rental includes stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and new hardwood floors. Walk to 6th Street and great restaurants like Takoba, drive 5 minutes to the convention center, and enjoy all the perks of downtown Austin living.


A spacious master bedroom has a queen-sized bed and vaulted ceilings. The 2nd bedroom has a full-sized bed, while the 3rd has a twin. Two queen-sized airbeds bring the total sleeping capacity to 8 – there’s room for the airbeds in the living area, and we provide the extra linens. Each of the bedrooms features unique music memorabilia.

Cook a full meal in the fully stocked kitchen with stainless appliances, then dig in at the adjacent dining table. Outside is equally impressive, with a front porch overlooking a lovely xeriscaped front yard. Have a BBQ in the backyard – seating areas and a gas grill are waiting! After dinner, an outdoor fire pit lets you enjoy a glowing evening under the stars.


Our home is only eight blocks from East Side King, a hip food truck and Austin landmark, and only a couple more to Takoba, one of the best modern Mexican restaurants in town. Other famous Austin spots are close by, too, like East Side Pies and Franklin BBQ.

It’s only a 5-minute drive to the convention center, Sixth Street and Rainey Street districts, and a few minutes from The University of Texas and the State Capitol. The perfect explorer’s home base!

The City of Austin limits occupancy to six unrelated adults.

Kind of out dated but NICE

  • 5 of 5

The house yard needed to be kept up. Hasn't been cut in a very long time.AC and fridge were set on timers but Other than that the overall experience was great. I definitely chose a great house for my birthday weekend!! Hopefully can book it again.

Pretty good for a group trip.

  • 4 of 5

Overall the house was pretty good. Clean, spacious. My only complaint would be that it was a tight squeeze for anything more than 5 people. The master bedroom had a queen, which slept 2. The other two bedrooms slept 2 and 1. They did have air mattresses but they deflated over night so you had to keep blowing it up. Location was close enough to downtown (6th street) but not walking distance as the area could get a little sketchy but we did not feel unsafe at all. Really cute outdoor area and the kitchen and living room area was very homey. They provided multiple towels, toiletries, and everything you need for cooking in the kitchen.

We loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Close to restaurants, bars, shopping, etc. The house looks small from the outside but don't let looks deceive you. There was plenty of space for our group of 7. I loved the layout of the house. It was cute, charming and inviting. The house was clean and well taken care of. We would definitely rent this little gem again. Thanks for a great stay!!

Reviewer Comments:

I was nervous about using Turnkey for the first timbut I was pleasantly surprised at how well things went. The location was about a 10-12 dollar Iber ride to 6th street and less for Rainey and SoCi. The house was very clean and extremely well stocked with everything we needed for our stay. The beds are comfy and the air mattresses that are available are really big! The backyard is also really cute. I would definitely stay here again and can't wait to use Turnkey again!

Austin Trip for family wedding

  • 4 of 5

We had a good time coming to Austin and visiting with our family for a wedding. The home was centrally located to our events which were downtown. It was easy to get to and from our events. The parking was limited but we made it work. The home had all the basics we needed we were able to cook a big family breakfast with ease. The home was spacious. We had to get the nest to work on the thermostat which was on an energy efficient setting which made it a little hot when it would default to its energy settings but once it was going it was good to go. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it. The staff was easy to reach regarding the thermostat and wifi codes, and it was easy to get booked online.

Reviewer Comments:

Unbelievable amount of flies inside the home. Made it very difficult to cook dinner, serve food, enjoy being in there. Location is close enough to fun parts of E 6th Street. House itself is pretty good - nice bathrooms, good common area, well kept.

Owner's Response: Hello Anna, thank you for the feedback and the comments, we do appreciate hearing from our guests. With the recent weather we experienced here in Austin we found many homes had an increase in flies. We are glad you were able to enjoy the location and other parts of the house. Thank you for staying with us and all the best ~ Turnkey VR

This home is located in east Austin surrounded with plenty to do in walking distance. If you are in town to enjoy Texas BBQ then this home is ideally located; just blocks from Franklin's BBQ voted the best in the state by Texas Monthly. There are plenty more restaurants in the area including Papi Tino's for a lovely dinner or Takoba for Brunch. Additionally the East Side King's trailers: owned by Paul Qui, the winner of Top Chef are very close to the house. This home is a short walk to the Austin Convention Center where the official SXSW events are hosted. The very popular east sixth street bars and music venues are all in walking distance of the home. The East Side Showroom serves up gourmet food and craft cocktails and certainly worth a trip. Just a short drive away from the home is the Darrell K Royal Texas Memorial Stadium, where the University Of Texas hosts there football games. Just near the stadium is University Of Texas, the State Capital and the rest of Downtown Austin.
