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.

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

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!

Great central location! Close to all the action (University, Capitol, 6th street).

  • 5 of 5

Three bedrooms, two baths with wifi, AC worked great. Lots of channels if you wanted to watch TV. Kitchen had everything we needed. We enjoyed the deck in the evening.

We would highly recommend this Duplex to families and couples.

Location was great, just off Lamar. Close to Whole Foods. Located close to I35 and 1.

Wonderful time and I would definitely consider Judy and Oscar on our next trip.

Thanks.....

Best Place

  • 5 of 5

This has been the best place to stay while visiting University of Texas or Austin in general.

We first stayed here when our daughter moved to Austin for her graduate year in August. We loved it so much that we immediately booked for Thanksgiving and Graduation.

It's so convenient to everything. It's in walking distance to Whole Food and a bunch of restaurants. We walked to the Capitol and took many Ride Austin rides for under $10.

Everybody had plenty of room. We got to enjoy our morning coffee on the deck. We were able to use the laundry room. It was a great home for a vacation in Austin.

Quaint and Cozy in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We went with another couple and rented both halves of this duplex. Not being separated by distance or traffic worked out great for us. The unit(s) has everything you need including washer/dryer and wifi that was strong and reliable throughout the home. Location is supreme for access to downtown sights and sounds. The little coffee shop/restaurant only 60 paces away was a great bonus. Definitely would stay again.

Great space, great location

  • 4 of 5

Very clean home, very comfortable beds, great space, fast Wifi and excellent location. Loved Aztec Coffee right across the street (went there everyday)! We are a family of 4 with two teenage boys, so having sleeping accommodations for all four of us (real beds, NOT pull out couch) was huge. My only comment is the amenities were slim to none.

Besides dishes, the only thing in the kitchen is salt and pepper, so if you plan on cooking anything, you have to buy everything. Same in the bathrooms. Not even a bar of soap available in either bathroom, you must bring your own. Otherwise, excellent place.
