Downtown Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed, 1 Bath

Our unit is conveniently located on the first floor of a 6-unit building, and situated among gracious, older, historic homes in the lovely Judge’s Hill area of Austin, 806 W. 17th St. Very quiet. It is a fifteen-minute walk to UT, the famous 6th St. area—fine restaurants and hot nightspots; and nine blocks from the Capitol. Sleeps two in bedroom with queen bed; there is a queen sofa-bed in the living room to accommodate two more. Full bathroom with tub/shower. Condo has its own washer and dryer. Fully stocked kitchen (just bring food) and all linens.

Appointments: a 50” plasma TV and elaborate Bose sound system in the living room, and DVD/CD player using the Bose system. Wide-screen TV in the bedroom, high speed internet, a fully equipped kitchen with new stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. The fenced patio is quiet and shady with a private entrance, and an umbrella table.

This is a great getaway—for a vacation in the beautiful capitol city; a football or baseball game at the UT stadium or Dishfalk Field; or a night at the famous 6th St area, and at dozens of music performances for which Austin is famous. It’s difficult to find a better location: a lovely, quiet, and historic neighborhood, and the best of Austin within short reach.

For a map of the exact LOCATION, click 'LOCATION' at the top, yellow strip.

PETS? We accept house-trained dogs, which the patio fence will easily contain. There is a Pet Fee--Refundable wholly or in part-- depending on the housekeeper's charge after the guest's departure. No extra charge for normal use. We have rented to pets and their owners for years, and mostly with excellent results.

NOTE: We rent only full months (or more). No short term rentals.

Please call Scott, the manager, if you have any questions about your pet.

Great location for access to University and Downtown

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was a nice, quiet place to stay in Austin. It had everything that we needed: a fully-equipped kitchen (including grill), nice patio, plenty of seating and comfortable places to sleep. We are walkers, when it comes to travel, so being within 1.5 miles of both downtown and the University was no big deal (I think there was one day where we walked about 6 miles). Scott was also a very gracious host. There was some very bad weather which caused a problem at the apartment, but Scott took care of it calmly and it didn't cause us any issues for the remainder of our stay.

great central location and price

  • 4 of 5

This is a great location if you need something near downtown or the university. My husband had a business meeting here and this was a very

comfortable convenient location. It's best if you have a car. Parking is tough around this neighborhood but we had a designated spot at the condo. I did

a lot of walking, but it happened to be pretty hot and sticky when I was there, and some of the surrounding area is a little iffy like many downtown locations.

The condo had everything we needed, and the host was very available and helpful to us. The furniture is a little worn, but comfortable enough. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

Nice quiet condo

  • 5 of 5

This nice condo worked out perfect while we moved our Son into his apartment for the new school year. It was great staying in a peaceful neighborhood instead for having to fight the traffic nightmare of I35 to get back to the hotel rooms. This condo had plenty of room to stretch out at night and has everything you will need for your stay. I recommend it to everyone and hope to stay there again myself.

Austin 4th of July

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this property! We loved the location, it made for a nice walk to downtown or a super short cab ride/ long walk to activities south of the river. The inside was comfy and had everything we could need and the outside patio was an extra bonus! I would highly recommend this property to others :)

Great Location, Cozy Condo, All you need!!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my boyfriend for our first trip to Austin. We could not have had a better experience. We cooked breakfast/made coffee in the kitchen every morning after making several trips to the nearby Whole Foods. Washer dryer included allowed us to wash all our clothes. We had coffee, breakfast & late night glasses of wine out on the patio. We loved 6th street & Rainey Street. Condo close enough for a cheap cab ride (or walk if you don't mind the Texas heat) to great restaurants and bars! The owners were even so kind to work with my boyfriend so that there were flowers waiting on the table with a personalized note for me when we arrived. Personal parking spot was amazing for our rental car! Would definitely go back!

First time in Austin. The condo was very convient to walking around Austin, especially close to the University of Texas. Very comfortable and clean accomodations. We will definitely rent this again if we return to Austin.

Judges Hill Area. Beautiful neighborhood to walk in (with your dog) and a mile from most main attractions. The River/Lake Walk trail is fabulous! Very convenient location to downtown and University.
