The Space

Beautiful, Large 3/2 with 1 king, 2 queens and 1 full size futon. This is a full time vacation rental, and has everything supplied to live comfortably. Fully furnished kitchen, bedding, towels and coffee setups provided. 1.5 miles to downtown.

Can Sleep up to 10 if both units rented. House sleeps 7, apartment 3(URL HIDDEN) The Garden St. House, built in 1912, is a large, wonderful house located just east of downtown near parks and Lady Bird Lake. The master bedroom has a king size bed with a private bath. The other 2 bedrooms have queen size beds, and there is an additional full size futon in the office /den area.

The house is about 1.5 miles to downtown in a quiet neighborhood but walking distance to a few restaurants and shops.

The vaulted ceiling and colorful walls throughout the house which was remodeled 5 years ago, gives the home a feeling of expansiveness and creativity. It's very comfortable and truly a home away from home.

Coffee setups provided as well as a fully furnished kitchen with a nice gas stove, large fridge and 3 tables for eating. The downstairs house has a front porch and a covered back patio complete with a charcoal grill.

Upstairs Apartment is a separate rental that is sometimes available for larger parties up to 10 people, 7 downstairs, up to 3 upstairs (additional charge $99/night and $60 cleaning). It is a converted attic space with a queen and a full size bed with a full bath and kitchen and a private entrance. These units can be rented together or separately.

There is some great mexican food within walking distance and a food trailer court as well as 2 vegetarian restaurants that are fabulous. The area has a wonderful mexican influence with a trendy artists area close by.

The Bus is close with bus stop 1/2 block away and a bigger hub about 4 blocks that can take you directly to downtown.

House is comfy for up to 7 people. Apartment upstairs for additional 1-3 guests, one queen, one full size upstairs, $99/night, $60 cleaning. inquire with owner for more info(URL HIDDEN)The Garden St. House (and apt.) is located just east of downtown by 1.5 miles and is close to Cesar Chavez where you will find many shops, cafes, yoga, art studios and bakeries. Sweet area with many artists and culture. A blend of Mexican influence from years past has given East Austin a wonderful reputation for the folks that like the real people. Two swimming pools are close open only during the summer, and located easy access to IH35.

I do like to speak with the guests before booking if possible. I generally don't meet the guests to check in because the house has a key code. I do like to welcome the via phone or text, whichever they are comfortable with. I have a neighbor take care of the house, yard and trashes so you may see him taking care of things.

East Austin is eclectic, and the Garden St. neighborhood has a wonderful array of choices, including walking along the hike and bike trail that borders the lake, only moments away. The house was built in 1912 and renovated with bright colors, vaulted ceilings. Sweet, safe neighborhood, friendly, close to nature and water.

Bus, bike or walk...all easy and convenient.
