About this listing
"Austin architecture is almost just as unique and diverse as the town. This 5BR/2.5BA house is no exception to that trend. The first floor structure was built in the early 20’s and has plenty of the original character. In stages since then, three additional floors have been added in the form of a tower. The beauty of this unique home is clear both inside and out. The first level has two traditional bedrooms, one with a king and one with a queen, and an additional sleeping space in the living room that is defined by a curtain partition. The first floor is also home to a fully stocked kitchen and two bathrooms -- one attached to the master and one in the hallway between the two rooms. The multi-use space in the living area can be either an extended living room or a sleeping room with two twin beds that can roll into a king if you prefer. The three-story tower addition has a separate use for each floor. The first is home to a twin bed, working desk, and sitting area. The second is a landing pad with chairs, a mini refrigerator, and a half bath. The loft above yields even more sleeping space with a full sized bed. Large groups can stay together in Zilker, one of the most desired parts of town, at our beautiful home that sleeps nine.
It doesn’t matter the season -- our location is perfect. Whether you are in town for the Austin City Limits music festival at Zilker Park and want to walk home or you want to explore South Austin’s finest, both are just minutes away from your vacation rental. The original Chuy’s is right across the street, next to the home of the famous purple margarita at Baby Acapulco. Enjoy breakfast at Austin Java or walk to JuiceLand for a healthy smoothie. Both are local finds. The baked potato omelet at Java is to die for and the Wundershowzen Smoothie is just weird enough to convince you to try it. Don’t worry -- you are just doing your part to “Keep Austin Weird”.

This house was certainly unique! It had a very cozy beachy Austin vibe. It's a great place for a group to stay that has all of the basics.
It's clearly a full-time rental, so there's not much of a kitchen stock, or many extras. Also, it's clear that there was a lot of DIY-work done around the house. The home-make Spiral staircase seemed a little suspect. It's a little less than immaculate in the upkeep department, since it's a full-time rental. There's nothing dirty about the surface, there were clearly cleaners, but things like vents and fixtures had clearly not been cared for in some time.
Also, no locks on the bathrooms. Just a heads up.
This is managed by a large property management company, so expect some quirks with that. There isn't so much a host as a company that handles the account, so I did find myself on hold waiting to get directions to get into the house that had fallen through the cracks. It was very smooth from the point where we showed up though.
All-in-all it's a cozy place that more than suffices for a place to crash for a large group. Just don't expect touches of home or hospitality that you get with a family that might live in their home.
We came to Austin for a bachelorette party and had the most amazing time. The house is incredible and really contributed to our overall experience. We would all most definitely recommend this house to any one of our friends and family. Working with AirBnB was easy and seamless. Thank you for a truly great experience!

This house is amazing and the hostess was easy to work with. There were click check-in and out instructions. We were able to get an eater check-in which was helpful. The home is so unique and fit our group of 8 comfortably. It was in a great, funky, central location. I would recommend this home to family and friends.
This house was perfect for me and my 5 girlfriends to stay for a long weekend! Erica did a great job with giving us instructions for the house. This home looks even better in person than the pictures and I would recommend staying here to anyone! Also, the neighborhood was beautiful and was very close to everything - Downtown, 6th Street, S Congress and Rainey St.
Turnkey vacation rentals were very professional and aside from a few little issues that were sorted out quickly we really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful house.
