Cannot be more "in the heart" of SXSW activities. Walk to the convention center and most of the SXSW venues from our home. Possibly THE closest single family home for rent during the festival. STR license 917465
After enjoying all that Austin has to offer, come back and relax at a fully remodeled historic, craftsman-style home in the heart of downtown. Unwind in one of two cozy living spaces in the great room or in the private courtyard next to the pool. Enjoy peace and privacy in your own private compound right in the heart of the city. Sip your morning coffee on the large wrap-around, peaceful porches while the city wakes up around you. Grill steaks on the commercial-grade stainless grill on the patio by the pool. Our 4 bedroom/3 bath 3000 sq ft house has comfortable furnishings, a large kitchen, 12 foot ceilings and mesquite floors. The huge, fully fenced, beautifully landscaped yard is a rare find in this part of town, great for entertaining, relaxing. The gated driveway will fit up to 5 vehicles. Our home is across the street from the historic French Legation. Currently a four bedroom, can convert an office into a 5th bedroom to accommodate more visitors.
Property also includes fully equipped garage apartment with separate kitchen-bath, which can also be rented and sleeps up to 4 more (two very comfortably).
Close to everything - coffee shops, restaurants and bars all within walking distance. Attractions such The Capitol, Convention Center, UT Stadium are about a 10 - 15 minute walk. Easy 10 minute drive to airport. Our location is in the heart of the area of downtown Austin that was just voted #7 'Hippest Neighborhood in America'. (website hidden)
This is a unique property perfect for a corporate headquarters for SXSW or F1 type events.
Interaction with Guests
Will personally hand keys over when they arrive and will be available by phone/emails for any questions or problems. Can easily stop in to help.
Larry and his family are amazing hosts. They made me and my group feel so welcome in their beautiful home. This house is perfect for a stay in Austin. It is close to everything, yet the perfect distance away that it's peaceful and quiet. A dip pool is the best way to cool off after a long day. Thank you Larry!
Had a great stay at Larry's. It's an expansive property with a terrific outdoor area. The house is comfortable and well appointed with a nice open layout. You couldn't ask for a better location - lots of awesome bars and restaurants around the corner, and still only a few minutes walk to the heart of downtown. Larry was great to deal with and would highly recommend.

We have lived in Austin for 20 years or so, and in our current house for the last 12 years. We travel quite a bit as we love to get on the water and kite surf whenever we can. We have three kids age 5,8, and 2, and a dog. Our garage apartment is private, comfortable and in a fantastic location.
