Overview

Austin Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Austin STR License: OL 2012 110070

This home is within walking distance or a very short cab ride from everything you want to do in the downtown Austin area.

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

For larger groups, both units in the duplex can be rented together for 4 bedrooms, 2 lofts and a comfortable 2450 square feet. See VRBO 370228.

In town for UT stuff? Memorial Stadium is less than two 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 about 10 minutes.

If you're into the outdoors, one of Austin's finest treasures, Pease Park, is right around the corner, including access to Austin's vast hike and bike trail system. Zilker Park, home to Austin City Limits Festival, is just 2.3 miles.

About Judy Walsh

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 lived here 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 year and 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. Plus, you can walk to Whole Foods, Waterloos Records where they sometimes have live music in the parking lot, Book People, and the Capitol.

AAA+++

  • 5 of 5

Excellent accurate description with plenty or room, extremely clean and very comfortable. Short easy walking distance to many activities. Judy, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful or more accommodating with our needs. One of the best places I have ever rented.

Gathering place for girlfriends!

  • 5 of 5

This Austin home was just the right size and layout for a girlfriends catch-up place! We were able to enjoy our chats in a homey environment yet venture out to downtown Austin with ease. Wine and coffee and groceries were within easy walks! The very cool graffiti park was around the corner. This property was clean and well-stocked. Thank you!

very neat, tidy, and accessible

  • 4 of 5

Nice home, great for a small group looking to co-habitate rather than each having hotel rooms... centrally located, we were able to get around Austin easily enough. Would recommend visiting Austin and staying at this place to most. Only 1 issue I had was that there was no kettle, but that was easily worked around.

Cute, spacious, and a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We came for a girls trip over Memorial Day weekend and had the best time. The house was perfect and was in such a great location. The owner Judy was very easy to get in touch with and even responded to text message! We would love to return to Austin and if we do, we will stay here again! Thanks for everything Judy!

Great location and comfortable accommodations

  • 4 of 5

The Park House was perfect for our annual girls' getaway and very comfortably accommodated four women. The townhome was clean and well provisioned; beds were comfortable; and the owners were quick to respond to an issue with front door keypad lock. Judy's husband Dennis also provided excellent recommendations for music and entertainment options in the area!

The location was ideal for exploring Austin and getting out of town. Some of our favorite sites were the Driskill Hotel, the Lady Bird Wildflower Center, the LBJ Library, and a day trip to Fredericksburg. We enjoyed dining at the Launderette, Hula Hut, and Shady Grove, and discovered late in our stay that the coffee shop across the street is actually a full service restaurant serving food and drinks all day!

This property's layout and amenities would work well for singles, couples, or families.

Nice!

  • 4 of 5

It was nice having the coffee shop next door. The stairs were a little steep but overall it was a nice place to stay. It was convenient to use the trail to walk into town or take a short taxi ride into town as well.
