I'll be on-call for anything you need! I'll let you in and give you the keys in person, and then you're left to enjoy your Austin vacation home.
This East Side neighborhood is in a charming, funky area, fulll of eclectic cottages and bigger new-builds. People are so friendly here, so give 'em a wave and say hello :)
You'll be close to MLK and Manor, where there are tons of hip East Austin restaurants and bars a short walk away. Some of my favorites are the Juiceland that just opened up on MLK, Austin Daily Press for gourmet sandwiches and tacos, and Salty Sow for happy hour! Also try Dai Due, rated the best new restaurant of 2014 - just a 10-15 minute walk away.
Cabs will run $10-$15 into the heart of downtown. You can walk to bars on Manor and a new bar, the Wheel, is about a 5-10 minute walk away. The trendy 6th st. East Side bars will cost you about an $8 cab ride if that.
There are both bus and train stops close by to will take you into the heart of downtown in 10 minutes (depending on traffic).
No pets - this is strict due to allergies.
