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.

Great property in quiet neighborhood close to great spots

  • 4 of 5

Even though I had a few entry problems when arrived and didn't meet Deacon during my stay, communication was on point with Deacon. Even the days leading to my arrival, communication with Deacon was great and that made me feel at ease having not done this before. Property was great as well and had a nice relaxing atmosphere with lots of space. Everyone in my group enjoyed their stay and felt at home. The property is located in a nice quiet neighborhood close to all the cool spots on south congress and easy access to main streets to go to the airport. I'd recommend trying this place out!

Awesome Place to Stay during Austin Trip

  • 5 of 5

I came to visit Austin in a group of six girls and we had the best time. The place was perfect for us and Deacon couldn't have been more accommodating prior to and during our stay. Thanks so much! Expect us back soon!

good stay

  • 3 of 5

we had a wonderful time staying here with friends. The location was great; close to town--only $10 cab ride. The bedrooms were good size with nice bathrooms. The property overall was nice but the unit itself was not clean. The dirty dishes were still in the dishwasher; again still DIRTY. It took us a while to figure that out; we couldn't figure out why there were no glasses in the cabinets until we opened the dishwasher to put a utensil in it. There was dust all over the place and the comforter on the bed looked dirty. I would strongly recommend reviewing the person or company who cleans; firing them and finding someone else. Again, great location but cleanliness gets an "F".

Nearest Airport
5 Miles
Austin Bergstrom
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.
