The space


In the heart of the upcoming South Shore development on Lakeshore Blvd. Directly across from Lady Bird Lake on the east end of the famous Hike and Bike Trail is our 1100 square foot 2 story red brick townhome. We are less than 300 feet from Lady Bird Lake, can give you directions to a great little hidden sandy beach nearby that only locals know about. You can walk to restaurants such as Draft Pick Sports Bar, Mariscos Seafood, Arandinas, Baby Acapulcos, El Taquito, the new trailer park eatery at South Shore and countless more. Less than a mile from our us is our local H.E.B. Grocery store.
Also we are on the same street as the brand new Emos Austin music venue and obviously walking distance as we can see Emo's from the front of our community.
We are located just east of the Interstate 35 off of Lakeshore Blvd in a small gated townhome community across from Hosteling International Hostel. Best of all though, because we are east of Congress along Lady Bird Lake 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.


Our home has everything a guest could need.
Our living room has a flat screen T.V. and of course wireless internet.
There is a separate guest bathroom downstairs as well near the kitchen and dining room.
In between the bedrooms is a large shared bathroom with bathtub, with unlimited hot water. The entire community hot water is from a massive boiler so everyone can shower without fear of when the cold water is gonna hit.


Bus: For 1 dollar you can take a 7 minute bus ride on the number 7, 20, or 100 to congress and riverside. Theses busses run every few minutes and the bus stop is just a couple minutes walk from our townhouse.
Best though about the bus is that you can take the bus from the airport to our house. Just one bus, just $1.00.
Cab: To 6th Street and Congress is 5-7 dollars depending on who you call.
Walk: Were right along the lake so just walk along the lake to downtown.
