Eastside House - Near Downtown!

House - Entire home/apt · Willow St, Austin, TX 78702, United States

The Space

Just six blocks east of downtown, this sweet little house makes a great homebase for exploring Austin. Downtown and east 6th street are an easy walk through a great neighborhood with true Austin character. The house is one block from Cesar Chavez which is a growing commercial district with great restaurants (Bufalina, Las Cazuelas, Mr Natural), coffee shops and cocktail bars (Cenote, Weather Up), and retail (Farewell Books, Charm School Vintage). This side of town is also full of artist studios and small galleries which are often holding open houses or events. Pedicabs are easily available and a bike rental shop is just four blocks away. Just south are an extensive riverfront park and the Lady Bird Lake trail system; great for outdoor fun and a leisurely way access the city on bike.

The house is over 100 years old with the homey charm of this historic east Austin neighborhood but also offers all the amenities of a new contemporary home. It features a beautiful, open, airy living space with a loft and has been freshly renovated to be a clean, simple modern space. One large main room for living, dining and cooking makes the house perfect for groups and a comfortable place to relax. 2 bedrooms and open loft space comfortably sleep 6 people but couch and 2 twin air mattresses are available if you need additional sleeping space. 1 bath downstairs and a 1/2 bath upstairs.

We are young architects here in Austin and this house has been our weekend design project over the past year. We've spent a ton of time in this house throughout the renovation, using it for several exhibitions, shows and parties. It is a lovely place inside and out and a perfect place to soak up the Austin vibe. The huge backyard is frequented by green parrots and features a huge steel fire bowl for outdoor entertaining.

Check In
  • The house was perfect, really. Great location for a laid back weekend, close enough to downtown to make it a party, and plenty if places to eat/ get groceries. The house has pretty much everything you need, it's nicely furnished, and the owners are nice. It was an excellent weekend getaway.

  • We loved the house, very suitable for our party of 5. We came for the Austin Marathon and stayed 3 nights, enjoying everything of this house : the cactuses in front, the driveway for our pick-up, the 2 rooms, the shower serving 5 without problem, the backyard, the gas stove for our meals. Great neighbourhood and with great access to downtown, east side and all roads. Superb, and clean!

  • My friends and I had a wonderful weekend staying at Jessica's house.The house is located in a great area that we were able to walk to many places over the two nights that we stayed. We literally rode bicycles all over town starting from her house that Saturday. Jessica also was very accommodating when I left my watch somewhere in the house. I am looking forward to staying in this house again.

  • The house was lovely in an up-and-coming neighborhood. Easy 20 minute walk to 6th street, or cheap cab ride into town, so a rental car isn't necessary. Space is open with good light, and backyard is huge. The kitchen has incredibly nice and new amenities, and except a dishwasher it has everything else you could need. Overall very good experience, would rent here again if we came to Austin in the future.

    November 2013
  • Jessica and the Willow street house were amazing. It was spotless, spacious, very centrally located and super super cute. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Austin.

    October 2013
  • Beautiful place, Jessica was an amazing host. Incredibly helpful especially when flights were delayed and we arrived later than expected that night.

    Would love to stay again!
