About this listing
Boutique style craftsman in the heart of East Austin. Just a few blocks away from the East 11th and East 6th districts. Very near downtown - a short walk or incredibly short car ride away. One of the best possible locations in Austin - close to the airport, in the middle of SXSW festivities, a short walk to the UT football and baseball stadiums, and just a stone's throw from cafes and nightlife.
The boutique style is a charming craftsman built in the 1920's. It features many period details such as glass doorknobs, craftsman built-ins, and Tiffany lighting.
Three well-appointed bedrooms feature luxury linens, down comforters, plush bath robes, armchairs, floor length mirrors, and vanity areas.
Each bedroom can sleep two - an air mattress can also be provided.
Spa-like bathroom with plenty of storage space, luxury towels, and hotel quality toiletries from Gilchrist & Soames.
Fully-equipped gourmet kitchen with high-end stainless appliances, gas stove, convection oven, Keurig coffee maker, French Press, and breakfast nook.
Open dining and living areas featuring Tiffany lighting, comfortable furniture, 42" lcd tv with cable, library, and wine nook.
HD cable with over 150 channels.
High speed wifi also included.
Cozy front porch with vintage rockers. Enormous backyard with large, lit deck including dining area, lounge area, biergarten, and outdoor grill.
Truly equipped with everything you might need for a short or long stay - NEW washer and dryer (February 2014), iron, hairdryer, outdoor grill, fully-equipped kitchen, and luxury linens. Air mattress, pack and play, and travel stroller available on request.
Five city bus stops are located within 1-2 blocks.
Parking - there is a two-car driveway in front of the house. There is also plenty of accessible street parking.
This home is solely an airbnb property - you will have full access to all closets, storage space, etc.

We are closest to the East 11th district that starts just two blocks away at the corner of Rosewood and Angelina. Highlights in this neighborhood include East Side Pies, Rockstar Bagels, Nubian Queen Lola's Cajun Soul Food, Micklethwaite BBQ, Hillside Farmacy, Quickie Pickie, Longbranch Inn, Blue Dahlia, Sagra, and (the famous!) Franklin BBQ.
We are also a 15 minute walk to the East 6th area which features highlights such as Whisler's, Qui, Takoba, La V, East Side Show Room, Wonderland, LaBBQ, and Via 313 Pizza.
Austin's bike share program, B-cycle, has two stations a few blocks away on 11th Street.
Bus stops surround the house on all sides, making public transport to many Austin areas very easy via Capital Metro.
Ride sharing in Austin is easy to use and affordable.

HOUSE RULES -
No parties, no loud music, no smoking inside the house. Only the number of guests you reserved should be at the house - any number over is considered a party. Austin's noise ordinance states no loud activity after 10:30pm. Please be respectful of our neighbors and keep noise to a minimum after that time - especially while on the back deck.
Smoking outside is fine, but please dispose of all cigarettes in the outside trash cans before you leave. If the house smells like smoke, you will be charged the security deposit.
Wine, beer, coffee, and tea are provided for you. Please be respectful.
$500 deposit refundable if home not damaged.
Very simple check out guidelines are provided in the Welcome Packet - we ask that you follow these before checking out of the house. We will claim the security deposit for any excessive cleaning (if the cleaning crew requires more than 3 hours).
If any violations of these house rules occur, you will owe the full deposit.
Thank you and enjoy your stay.
Andrew and I live in Austin, TX. When we travel, we look for boutique hotels and well-appointed vacation rentals in the heart of the city. We like being steps away from the hottest restaurants and cocktail bars. We've decorated our vacation rentals to reflect these tastes and provide you with a cozy, chic home away from home!
