The Space

The French Birdhouse is the Upstairs unit of this amazing 2/1 duplex. It includes a charming deck that overlooks gorgeous property oaks on a tree-lined boulevard. Located just blocks from Butler Park, Auditorium Shores and the Long Center, it's the ideal location for SXSW-goers, Fun, Fun, Fun Festers and Film Festival Junkies, as well as anyone looking to be near the shops and food trailers on S. 1st. A quick cab or bus ride will put you downtown in 2nd Street District where you can catch a flick at the recently opened Violet Crown Cinema or see a legendary performance by one of Texas' top artists at the Moody Theater. A 15 minute stroll east will get you to the famous SOCO drag for shopping, fine dining, and live music. Enjoy a jog or bike ride on Lady Bird Lake Hike and Bike Trail just blocks away on one of our bicycles that are included on the property.

Preciously clad with original hardwoods and great natural light throughout, we filled its vintage shell with gorgeous contemporary pieces to complement the homey feel with a fresh-faced appearance. A fence will be added in the early part of 2014 to keep pets and children safe in the spacious and shady yard. Crib, bassinet, carseat, high chair and other baby gear are all available upon request.

We hope you will join us at our latest and greatest 78704 property in Bouldin Creek. Ideal for visitors of all kinds: individuals and families who are in-between homes home, corporate stays, festivals-goers and seasonal travelers, you will love the stellar location and all the lush amenities that the Birdhouse has to offer!

The Neighborhood

Bouldin is great! The neighborhood-y, 'South Austin Funky' vibe is unmatched. You can walk to Zilker park for a day festival, Butler Park, the Long Center, Auditorium Shores, the Hike & Bike Trail, and the Palmer Events Center just to name a few. Or hop on a bike to take a dip in Barton Springs! Friendly neighbors sit on their front porches and say "howdy" when you pass by. And you can easily walk to hip new restaurants and stores on S. 1st and S. Congress. Bouldin is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Austin for its great oak trees, new library, parks, bars, airstream trailer food finds and proximity to SoCo, downtown and to Zilker Park. It is also sought-after for its close access to major thoroughfares like Lamar, Mopac, and 71 for easy commuting around and out of town. Bouldin can't be beat for a vacation destination and it's super family-friendly. There are parks galore, including 2 splash pads that are walking distance and summer art classes for little ones at the Dougherty Art Center and almost every restaurant within a mile welcomes children.

  • We stayed with Kat for 3 months, and I can't imagine it going any better! She was an attentive host who was always quick with a reply if we had any questions. She left a list of suggestions for us upon arrival with many of the places being within walking distance.
    The birdhouse was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. I love Kat's sense of style and decoration. Anything we required was accessible and I love it that there is a washer and dryer as well.
    The location was also prime. It is easy to walk to Congress street or Lady Bird trail. If you have a bicycle, you can ride down to the lake and start the trail from there. You are also close to interstates, multiple grocery stores, the mall and downtown if you wish to drive.
    The whole experience with Kat was great, and I would certainly suggest you stay with her during your Austin experience.
