High Rise Luxury From The Comfort of Your Home

Bedrooms 3
Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 6

Located barely minutes from downtown our home is the perfect space for those that are looking for the slick and stylish aesthetic of a modern condo with the space and size of a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home. This is a stand alone house across the street from both a dog park and the famous hike and bike trail connecting you to the mainline of Austin’s vibrant downtown scene. With breathtaking skyline views from massive living and master bedroom windows, your comfort and enjoyment will be well satiated, and your time in the “Live Music Capital of the World” will be spent as one of the locals... at ease.

The condo is a mile and a half from South Congress where you can shop, sip, and eat to your hearts content. If that doesn’t strike your fancy, mosey a couple blocks West to South 1st Street’s vibrant restaurants. If you’re in the mood for a drink, 1.5 miles North is Austin’s famous 6th Street district where you can find yourself mixing with hipsters, UT students, or young professionals, depending on the block. Headed outside of the city limits for the day? You’ll have IH35 as an immediate outlet to get you started!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We recently travelled to Austin for a UT football game weekend and to visit with our children who are students at UT. What an amazing home! Megan, the owner, was very accommodating to every small request we had (A/C was super cold when we arrived on a steamy day, bottles of water in the fridge and fresh, clean, luxurious linens on the beds - what more could you ask?!)

This home is owner managed (unlike many homes you may rent from VRBO/HomeAway). This is a huge plus - the owners will go out of their way to make sure you are happy. Luckily, everything was perfect upon arrival, but the hospitality was definitely noted and appreciated.

The home very convenient to the downtown scene, without being directly in the middle. We walked along the hike & bike trail to get to the Rainey Street district and 6th street. I would recommend a cab for late night ($5 cab fare).

Overall, this home was perfect for our stay and we are already planning next season's visit!

This house is huge!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the property during SXSW. It is a short walk across the river to Rainey St and Downtown Austin so was perfect for getting in and out of the city. It is also perfectly located for visiting all of the sights of South Austin by car. The house is enormous (the pics really cannot do it justice) and the many balconies are also great for relaxing and having a drink.

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect place for my colleagues and I to stay while attending a conference in downtown Austin. We had more than enough space and it was a short drive to the downtown area. Working with Megan was wonderful and I would definitely recommend.

Spacious, modern home was perfect for our vacy

  • 5 of 5

Megan's home was awesome and exactly as listed. Upon arrival, check-in was super easy and it was very clean The spacious floorplan provided plenty enough space for our group of 6 to sleep comfortably. Although we didn't get to explore the surrounding area much due to time contraints, we did Uber to downtown and Barton Springs - both of which were only a short drive away. I would definitely stay with Megan again, and her place has my recommendation.

Beautiful house, perfect for a group

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of six coming in for a long weekend, and chose this house for it's size and location, as well as all how pretty the rooms and window views looked. Upon arrival, we found it even better than we had expected, and situated nicely in a suburban neighborhood that allowed us to walk to Congress street easily. Megan was very responsive and thoughtful with her instructions and made sure everything we may have needed for our stay was taken care of. Upon checkout, we were already talking about coming back to stay here next year!

Great Place for a Bachelorette Party!

  • 5 of 5

This house was great! Awesome location - 5 min. cab ride to Rainey Street and 10 min. cab ride to 6th street! Beautiful house - description was on point as far as the layout, amenities, location etc.! Property was very clean and well-maintained! Property Owner was very helpful from the booking process to the check-out. I would definitely recommend this property to someone else, or even book it again for myself for another vacation! We loved the bar scene on Rainey Street, and Saturday went down to the Greenbelt off 360 & Mopac. It is a bit of a hike, but once you get to the water it's gorgeous and a great hang out spot. Overall a wonderful trip!!!
