About the property

Open Concept Cottage Sleeps 6

Be one of the first to stay in a newly remodeled cottage in one Austin's coolest neighborhoods!

This comfortable 2BR/1BA house is located just south of downtown Austin and minutes from Zilker Park. The house is walkable to South Congress (SoCo), the popular South First street, and South Lamar.

The house was completely remodeled in September of 2015. Granite countertops, newly-tiled bathroom, restored original hardwood floors, and much more. We are still in the process of putting together the house (artwork, plants, supplemental furniture beyond the basics), but the house is fully functional now and in one of Austin's best locations.

There is a TV with a Roku system. The Roku allows you to sign into your video streaming accounts, such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and HBO Go. There is an antennae for basic/local channels and wireless internet.

The house has two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with a king bed - both exceptionally comfortable. Both bedrooms offer closet and drawer space for guest use. The living room has seating for 5. The pull-out sofa converts to a Queen bed & is memory foam.

The bathroom has both a shower and a tub and the house is stocked with clean towels and linens.

The large backyard is a great spot for the kids to run around in and it connects to the front yard, providing even more space. The fence wraps around the frontyard and backyard, lots of space.

There is a long drive way for 2 cars as well as off-street parking. There is a full-size washer & dryer in the house available to guests with stays over 4 days.

The house is a 5-minute car ride to downtown Austin, Lady Bird Lake, Zilker Park and the Barton Springs Pool.

Three nights stays are preferred (and required for special events such as ACL, SXSW, F1), but two-night stays will be considered for an additional $50 fee (except if booked within a week of stay or if booked for weeknights only, excluding holidays/festivals).

Pets stays are accepted on per guest basis and charged a pet fee, typically $25 per pet per night.

There is a train nearby but it does not blow its horn. If you are a lighter sleeper, you may hear the train passing by.

Myself and my property manager, Natalia, work hard to respond timely and quickly to your inquiries or any needs during your stay. We will make sure you are taken care of while staying in my home.

Please let me know if you have any questions and I look forward to your stay!

Clean and quaint

  • 5 of 5

The house was in a great location. We could walk to the best breakfast spot in town in just a few minutes! The neighborhood was quiet and the small Creek behind the house was beautiful. We had everything we needed, however our kitchen use was minimal and the kitchen tools were limited. I'm sure as this VRBO gets used more the supplies will increase. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

About Natalia

I own my own business and am from Austin, TX. I love to travel - I'm trying to get around to seeing as much as I can! I've traveled to all fifty states and thirteen countries.

I've been renting out vacation rentals for about 5 years now and love meeting the many people from all over, as well as hearing their stories why they're visiting Austin.

Natalia purchased this house in 2009

Why Natalia chose Bouldin

I purchased my house to be an active part of Austin. When staying at my house, you are in the middle of it all - you are a quick walk, biker ride, or car ride from almost anywhere. The neighborhood, Bouldin Creek, is also one of Austin's quirkiest neighborhoods - in the heart of the infamous 78704 zip code. You will love your stay here!

What makes this house unique

Walking to breakfast or lunch at neighborhood cafes and fine dining restaurants, hopping on the City bus one block away, walking to the neighborhood park one block away, a twenty minute walk from Auditorium Shores and Ladybird Lake, a quick bike ride to Zilker Park, staying in the same neighborhood as residents movie star Elijah Wood and musician Robert Plant!
