Spacious 3bd3ba Excellent Proximity

House - Entire home/apt · Timber Ridge Dr, Austin, TX 78741, United States

The Space

This townhouse is less than 3 miles to the Austin Convention Center and downtown, and less than a mile from South Congress. It is on a bus route that leaves every 20 minutes and takes you downtown to 2nd Street. It’s close enough to see the downtown skyline from the front door, and conveniently located right off the highway. This is an ideal location for SXSW, because of the proximity to the airport and the bus line access to downtown. It is less than $10 for a cab ride downtown and $22 for a cab ride from the airport.

The property is in a park like setting on a hill with walking sidewalks and hundreds of trees. It has two community tennis courts, a community swimming pool and plenty of free parking. The townhouse has a private patio, BBQ grill, private garage for 1 car (but there is plenty of additional parking on the property), front loading washer and dryer, full kitchen with pots, pans and utensils, 52 inch flat screen in the living room and TV's in the bedrooms, MP3 connector for the BOSE sound system, granite counter tops, eco-friendly bamboo flooring, vaulted ceilings throughout the main portion of the townhouse, and fast wifi.

The upstairs master has a luxury pillow-top king mattress with a remodeled bathroom, and a separate vanity area. The downstairs master has a full private bath and a new luxury king size mattress. The upstairs partially private loft has a new, very nice, queen pillow top mattress. The living room has a large sectional sofa (sofa has slept two numerous times). There is an additional bathroom in the hallway leading to the downstairs bedroom. An extra IKEA twin size mattress can be setup anywhere in the place, and a twin size air mattress is also available. (2 king mattresses, 1 Queen, 1 Twin, 1 air mattress and sofa)

The nice linens, furniture, art work and spaciousness make this a very comfortable place to stay. I will include a pack of Lone Star beer or a bottle of wine for your arrival, and provide all toiletries and kitchen supplies.

There is a bus stop just outside of the property that takes you downtown, or you can take a $9.00 cab ride.

The taxi ride to and from the airport is $22.00.

I have one open spot in my garage for a car, and there is unlimited parking anywhere on the property if you have more than one vehicle.

  • The condo was great!. Good location to I35. Very clean and neat. Two large Master Bedrooms with one down and one upstairs. Had everything we needed including WIFI. Host was always checking in to make sure everything was to our satisfaction.

  • Had a great stay at this condo. Beds are comfortable and the location is close enough to all the best parts of Austin. Much thanks to Austin for sharing his place with us.

  • Dallas was an awesome host, left us beer in the fridge....do I need to say more? Excellent accommodations and was willing to work with us on a later checkout. Would definitely stay again!

    March 2014
  • We had a blast in Austin and really enjoyed staying at Dallas' spacious, comfortable and very clean place. Dallas was a great host, who was very responsive and generous with great tips for enjoying SXSW. I'll definitely be recommending this option to others heading to Austin at any time of year.

  • Dallas was a perfect person to deal with! Efficient, concise and the place lived up to standard. We sent a bunch of our Aussies across the SXSW and the place was perfectly equipped and ready for our guys. Thanks Dallas. Will remember you for future years for sure!

  • This place was so spacious and comfortable to stay in. I came with 5 of my friends so we had more than enough room for all 6 of us. Dallas was very accommodating as far as responding to all of our questions and being flexible with our check in/out times. The location is pretty central to everything we wanted to do and if you have a car then everything was about 10-15 mins away including downtown. I'd recommend this place to anyone! I would definitely stay here again next time I visit Austin!

    Response from Dallas:

    Thank you for the response. You and your friends were great guests. A car definitely helps and ensures anything "Austin" is 10-15 minutes, and downtown and South Congress only 5-10 minutes. There is also a bus line directly outside of the property and a taxi service if having a car is not an option. Thank you again for staying at my place. You are welcome back anytime.

  • First let me say that working with Dallas was awesome... The pre-arrival communication and follow-up was very responsive, helpful and pleasant.

    Six of us stayed for a long weekend in January, to attend a family wedding. The condo was exactly as advertised. It had all the amenities we needed. Very spacious, clean and inviting. Plenty of kitchen utensils, dishes, glasses. A generous supply of sheets and towels. The décor was tranquil and clean we felt at home immediately. The bedrooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable. There is some very cool artwork on the walls. Sunday afternoon we had 13 people over to watch football there was plenty of room for everyone. The patio was lovely.
    Loved the convenience of having a washer and dryer, plus the ease of convenient garage as well as street parking.

    Would definitely recommend this home!

  • Spacious Townhouse Great Proximity indeed! For substantially less than what it would have cost to bunk seven people in a roach motel during F1 weekend, we got to stay in a place that had all of the comforts of home (including beer, snacks, and a washer and dryer).

    It's close to downtown (a 10 minute drive) and the airport (a 15 minute drive). Plenty of space for seven people to spread out their things, lounge, and sleep. The beds were reasonably comfortable, linens and towels were nice and plushy, the bathrooms and kitchen were clean. Thanks Dallas!

  • The townhouse was perfect for our Half-Ironman trip. Location was super convenient to the airport which was great since many of us came in at different times, and left at different times. Very close to South Congress, and an easy drive to Downtown Austin! The case of Lonestar upon our arrival was definitely a nice surprise as well!

    October 2012
  • This place was perfect for our stay! Very Close to SOCO and Downtown Austin. Two Car Garage was great as we had two rentals. Rooms are spacious and Dallas was a great Host. Thanks Dallas we appreciate you sharing your place with us. Hope we can visit again soon!
