About Deacon

What's there to say, very laid back guy who loves Austin. I'm usually running the Hike & Bike trail, Stand Up Paddling the lake or watching live music somewhere in Austin.

Deacon purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Deacon chose Austin

I've lived in just about every part of Austin. After 20 years there is no better Austin experience that living in the dead center of the action.

South Congress is center of the Austin Universe. From the food trailers to the off the wall antique stores to the restaurants and clubs it's the Austin you've heard about.

What makes this townhome unique

Walk there, stumble home.

Just 3 blocks from Congress you can walk there and stumble home, really.

I live across the street but you'll probably never meet me. I'm usually on the go.

Need a recommendation (cab, restaurant, bar, something to do) ask or send me a text. Been here 20 years so I know the city.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great location and very easy to check-in. He contacted me by email throughout my stay to insure everything was satisfactory.



Perfect location, with an easy ride to downtown. Even walked to a few good meals in the neighborhood.

Car: not necessary

Just steps from South Congress and about 1 mile from Townlake and great running on the hike & bike trail. The home comes with 2 bikes so you can ride to great restaurants and clubs.

Make sure to check out a show at the Continental club and have a few drinks at the San Jose. There are too many places to recommend for dinner, just pick a place they're all great. From Mexican to Italian to hamburgers the food on South Congress is easily some of the best in Austin.

Missing Simple Things...

  • 2 of 5

The condo is in a good spot for Austin...but you will need to Uber or rent a car to get around. Unfortunately when we got there; no towels, no toilet paper, unclean dishes still in the dish washer. These to me are simple things that should have been right. We also had issues with the front door lock but luckily the owner was available via phone to give us an alternative code. Btw...the picture isn't the exact condo. Overall our experience could have been better.

Good location, good value

  • 4 of 5

Location was in easy walking/RideAustin distance to everywhere that we wanted to go in Austin. The place is quite clean and in a quiet, safe neighborhood.

Some VERY easy details would make this place 5 star: trash cans in the bathrooms/bedrooms, full sets of towels for both bathrooms (rather than odds and ends), liquid soap dispensers for the sinks, maybe a few toiletries to get you started (like in a hotel?). Most places that we've visited (whether VRBO or AirBnB) provide this. Maybe take away the lamp that doesn't work in the "marlin" room?

Great bones, just a little tired.

(we actually were changed to a different unit in the same complex (which was not a problem, and the owner let us know in advance), but I'm assuming the situation is the same in this one)

Great location and Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience in this condo was great. The pictures are exactly what it looks like. The two bedrooms and bathrooms are on separate floors which makes for great privacy. Our bed on the lower level was comfortable but missing the box spring so it's super low to the ground. The TV was hard to watch since there is no cable and operates off of an Amazon Firestick. Overall the location was close to South Congress and central to everywhere else we went. Deacon was very easy to work with and helped us out with a parking pass for the Golf Tournament we were attending. Great time in Austin!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and great location. Deacon was a very good host and easy to contact. The bed on the main level was extremely comfortable although a little low for my liking. The kitchen was also well equipped if you like to cook. Plenty of great dining options between 1st St and South Congress. Thanks for a great stay.
