Austin Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Austin STR License: OL 2012 103339

This home is steps from everything you want to do in Austin!

Whether you're in town for vacation or business, our Park House is your best choice. The casual comfort of this newly remodeled two bedroom duplex town home features all the amenities you expect... comfortable beds, luxury linens, clean and roomy living spaces, a well-stocked kitchen, outdoor seating, and wireless internet access.

Step out the front door and you're on downtown's west side. Walk to restaurants, entertainment, parks and groceries.

In town for UT stuff? Memorial Stadium is less than 2 miles away and we're right on the UT shuttle route. Downtown sightseeing is an easy outing too--you can walk to the State Capitol in just 10 minutes

If you're into the outdoors, one of Austin's finest treasures, Pease Park, is right round the corner, including access to Austin's vast hike and bike trail system.

Rent a two-bedroom unit, or for larger groups, combine this with the unit next door and have 4 bedroom and 2 lofts! See VRBO listing 374108.

About Judy Walsh

After 25 years as a corporate executive, I have begun a new career as an innkeeper with my vacation rental in Austin. With my love of travel, and background in marketing and sales, it is the perfect fit. My husband Dennis and I have stayed in VRBOs for many years and so I have a good sense of what guests need and want for a comfortable and enjoyable stay.

We absolutely love the live music scene in Austin, and the youthful, spontaneous nature of urban living. We are avid bikers and spend a lot of time exploring the bike trails and paths around town. Everything we do is within a few mile radius of our home, including our vacation rental. That means we can make sure everything is in top shape for our guests, and respond quickly should any problems arise.

Judy Walsh purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Judy Walsh chose Austin

We moved here in 1982 and stayed for 17 years as we developed our careers and businesses, and started our family. In the late 90’s opportunity took us away for 10 years. In 2009, we chose to come back “home” to our favorite place to live, Austin, Texas., with its relaxed lifestyle, friendly hospitality, and edgy personality.

What makes this townhome unique

This is the perfect place to be in central Austin. Our vacation home is right on the west edge of the downtown core, just outside the historic Clarksville neighborhood. There is hike and bike trail access just around the corner, which is a fun way to explore around town. And if you want to go for a night on the town, the cab fare home is about $6.

The list of conveniences is endless, but we love it that Austin Java is right across the street, not only for coffee, but they also have great food for breakfast, lunch and casual dinner. A great selection of beers on tap is just 100 steps away at The Tavern. Plus, you can walk to Whole Foods, Waterloos Records where they sometimes have live music in the parking lot, Book People, and the Capitol.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The downstairs toilet that was reported as wobbly has been fixed and also has a new flapper.

Loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

Four of my girlfriends and I had a "college reunion" in Austin last weekend. The house was absolutely perfect! Super clean, great back porch (where we spent lots of hours drinking coffee and chatting!) Loved Austin Java and the Tavern, both right across the street, and we were able to walk to Whole Foods and check out the bars on 6th. Also went for a long run through Pease Park. Thank you Judy for an excellent weekend!

Wonderful home and great location!

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful home and great location! The beds were very comfortable and the place was spotless. The owner, Judy, was very helpful and responsive when we had a question. Kitchen looked very well equipped. We loved being across the street from Austin Java - a great place for breakfast. Also walking distance (about a half mile) to a large independent bookstore, Whole Foods and a numer of other shops and restaurants. Check out the Outdoor Gallery (aka Graffiti Park) a few blocks away. It's worth seeing.

Great location, comfortable condo

  • 5 of 5

The location was great, easy to get downtown, clean and comfortable and well maintained. Well stocked with the essentials, towels, kitchen dish ware and appliances. The cafe across the street, Austin Java, had great food and coffee.

Great location in Austin

  • 5 of 5

This was a cute little place, very centrally located and within walking distance to a number of downtown restaurants and bars. Love the original hard wood floors and the more modern updates.

With Austin Java right across the street, you're just steps from that morning eye-opener and a tasty breakfast.
