THE BEST LOCATION DOWNTOWN - A rare Austin gem. Built in 1900, it's one of the largest historic houses that remains in Austin's super hip East Side. Right downtown, just 2 blocks from Rainey Street, SXSW, coffee shops, dining, jogging trails, and Town Lake, this carefully restored house is a quiet oasis with space to spread out. Perfect for groups. 100 year old wood floors, sprawling porches, old shiplap walls, vintage details... it's unique!

The space
Please read the house rules, too!

Fully restored and renovated, this house boasts 5 bedrooms, 3 baths, plenty of dining space, and shaded porches both front and back of the house. Pecan trees shade the yards, and a custom modern fence maintains privacy around the entire property.

BEDROOMS (7 beds total + 2 pullouts)

This is our HOME, and it is designed for comfort.

BR1 - King bed (2 people)
BR2 - King bed (2 people)
BR 3 - Two Queen beds (4 people)
BR 4 - Queen bed (2 people)
BR 5 - Two Queen beds (4 people), plus twin pullout sofa (1 person), plus extra floor mattress (best for a couple of kids).
Common area: Futon sofa (1 person)

Three extra IKEA twin mattresses could be used anywhere (best for kids). There is space in each of the king bedrooms or the blue/green upstairs queen bedroom to place an extra mattress on the floor.

KITCHEN
It's fully stocked with pots, pans, cooking gear, sharp knives, etc. There is plenty of servingware, plates, silverware, etc. for your group. We usually have plenty of condiments, sugar, basic spices, and olive oil on hand, but it's not guaranteed.

HOT WATER
A tankless water heater means you'll never run out of hot water. Hooray!

BATHROOMS
The house has 3 full bathrooms and plenty of towels and hairdryers.

OUTDOORS
The outdoor spaces are a favorite feature of this house. We have tons of yard games to share, including corn hole, ping pong, ladder toss, basketball. Shaded porches allow a group to spread out and enjoy the beautiful Texas weather.

Guest access
Guests have use of the entire house, except for a few locked cupboards.

Other things to note
Absolutely no parties at the house (that means inviting anyone over who isn't staying overnight and on the "roster".) This is our home (not just a rental house), so please help us to take care of it. Everyone must take the city rules seriously, including the 10pm noise curfew. Please read the full house rules document.

Location

Austin, Texas, United States

In Austin's newest, hippest neighborhood, we are located smack in the middle of downtown, where the East Side meets Rainey Street and downtown. Walking distance ( I mean, two blocks) to SXSW, restaurants, coffee shops, hike/bike/jogging trail, Town Lake (Ladybird Lake). $5 Uber/Lyft ride to most places downtown if you don't want to walk. $2 electric scooter ride to so many places!

Hello from Austin, TX! My husband and I are longtime Austin residents (going on 20 years). We recently decided to open our home to fellow travelers, so... we are new to hosting and THRILLED to share our unique home with you. We are avid adventurers with a home base firmly in Austin. Our home is truly one of a kind in Austin. So much of the city has been torn down for new growth - that's why we adore our quirky historic little (big!) abode on the east side. There is so much to do in Austin. My favorite coffee shop is just around the corner. There are 14 taco restaurants within walking distance and too many restaurants to name. Something new pops up every week. Come check it out!
