ABOUT THE LOCATION:
Our townhome is in the heart of the Lakeshore The Southshore District just across from the Floating Boardwalk that connects to Congress. We are less than 300 feet from Lady Bird Lake, next door to the Break Point at the Boardwalk Food Truck Court. Kayaking and SUP's (stand up paddle boards) can be rented just across the street.
Great location if you want to skip getting a rental car during your stay. We are in the Car2Go service area which makes getting around different parts of Austin extremely easy.
ABOUT THE ROOM:
Our guest room is always ready so can typically be available last minute. The guest room has a modern very comfortable queen sized platform bed with plenty of pillows. We also have an alarm clock/radio with Ipod dock, and outlets that charge usb devices. The guest room has a large closet with hangers. The large window overlooks the rear parking area that backs to a green wooded area & creek that leads to lady bird lake and has a partial view of the lake to the east.
If you decide to stay with us in our guest room you can expect fresh locally roasted coffee, and you can help yourself to anything in our fully stocked kitchen. We also have a GreenStar Juicer to make all sorts of fresh juices with.
ABOUT THE HOUSE:
Our unit is directly in front of the courtyard pool so it boasts a nice pool view. Downstairs we have a very open floor plan with stained concrete floors. Our kitchen is open to the living room with a pool view from the living room.
Our kitchen boasts a side by side refrigerator with water and ice, a professional european gas stove, stainless steel pans, Bosch dishwasher, and all the tools that a chef or a savvy cook could need.
Upstairs we have a full size high efficiency Bosch washer and dryer that have an awesome 20 minute cycle to quickly get those clothes clean.
Upstairs we have a large shared bathroom with bathtub. Hot water here is endless thanks to 2 large gas boilers in the community.
Emo's East and Buzz Mill 24 hour coffee, beer, & music bar are on our street visible from our complex and just a couple minutes walk.
For restaurant's you can walk to Taco More, Arandina's, Draft Pick Bar & Restaurant, Mariscos Seafood, Baby Acapulcos, El Taquito. Break Point at the Boardwalk Food Trailer Court includes such trailers as Garbo's Lobster Roll, Oyama Taco's, Fortune Snow Cups, BBQ Trailer, Wright Bro's soft serve ice cream and more. We are also close to the H.E.B. Grocery store and directly across from Hosteling International Hostel.
We are east of Congress Avenue along Lady Bird Lake so one of our best features is watching the famous Congress Avenue Bridge bat colony fly directly overhead every evening. The bats become active in mid-March but become ever more active the hotter it gets here, so enjoy the cool breeze from the lake and watch the bats fly over head.
