Austin House Rental Photos and Description

6 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms

Stately vintage Tudor rises above the rest in Travis Heights minutes from the shops, restaurants, and bars of South Congress and downtown. Beautiful 2-story rests on a 1/3 acre lot with a fenced yard, gravel patio and pool. Amazing renovated interiors with living areas on both floors! Gorgeous kitchen with expanded cabinets, marble countertops and center island. Walk along Stacy Park to the hike and bike trail at Lady Bird Lake or over to the Whip In for dinner or drinks. The music scene is a 5 minute car ride downtown, check out our favorite music venue Mohawk. This is truly the house for a 'local' experience! This is not a party house. Per the city of Austin 6 or more guests must be related. STR license 008063

Great House

  • 5 of 5

The house is nicely laid out and had plenty of beds. We weren't sure how big the pool would be based on the pictures but it was a good size and really great in the Texas heat. It's also really close to downtown which made fake-ubering in and out of the city really easy.

Great house for great friends to get together

  • 5 of 5

We have a reunion every year in different cities and Austin was next up on our list. We are so glad that we rented Courtney's home! The house is laid out perfectly for multiple couples to be comfortable and the number of unique, cozy shared spaces make you want to spend time at the house when you're not having fun in town. With the added bonus of a pool, great art and furnishings, and a welcoming chef's kitchen, we really could not be happier with our stay here.

Courtney was also just the best. We arrived a little early and she was able to accommodate our needs every step of the way. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Rent this house - you will not be disappointed.

Lovely house with so much space!

  • 5 of 5

This house was terrific! 6 bedrooms gave us more space than we needed. Kitchen is gorgeous. Newly renovated bathroom on the main floor. Very close to downtown (although uber was shutdown during our visit and cabs are not very reliable in Austin, as it turns out).

Great Place & Good for Groups

  • 5 of 5

We visited with a large group and everything was great. They even came by the first day to fix an issue with the tubs. The pool area was nice, everything was clean and tons of space for everyone. We didn't do any cooking in the house, but the kitchen was also very modern and nice. Would stay again!

Wonderful Thanksgiving Week

  • 5 of 5

The Travis Heights home was quite spacious, plenty of room for everyone (8 people). Bedrooms and bathrooms were situated such that they gave people privacy. Large living room and great kitchen area with nice picnic table and benches for breakfast nook. It is an older home located in a walkable neighborhood and close enough to walk to Congress Street for restaurants. The backyard provides a nice area to grill out. Very clean and plenty of linens.

Courtney was very responsive to our requests on adjusting the thermostat for the heating and cooling. Weather turned from warm to quite rainy and cold. The readers in the family enjoyed the Agatha Christie collection and a deck of cards came in handy for the rainy afternoons. We could have used a little more information how to work TV Roku. I would highly recommend this home.

It was wonderful and very charming!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect back drop to the perfect wedding weekend. We hosted all of the bridesmaids, then hosted a brunch, and on Sunday all of the family come over for brunch it was perfect! Huge rooms accommodated so many people. We will be back to book the house when we can use the pool!!! I think my favorite room was the kitchen. But I also loved the art deco tiles in the bathrooms. A historical gem!! And Courtney was spot on if we ever needed anything.
