Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Austin - 2BR Charming Bouldin Cottage

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Our 1948, 2BR cottage home has been completely remodeled and sits under a canopy of huge live oak trees. The cheerful kitchen has stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, gas cooking, and all the tools you need to cook your meals. There is also a French press, microwave oven, and toaster oven for breakfasts, and a good number of margarita and wine glasses just in case you need to unwind with friends after a long day of fun. The bed in the master bedroom has a deluxe pillow top mattress, lots of cozy pillows, and has linen sheets in the summer months and fleece in the few cooler months. The guest room features a second queen bed with plenty of pillows and crisp cotton sheets. The bathroom has also been fully updated. The living room has a flat screen TV, a fireplace, and an iPod docking station. It’s open to the kitchen, making for an easy layout to hang out with friends and family. After a long day of fun activities, come home to hang out and share a bottle of wine on the huge back deck under the live oaks (and glowing solar powered lanterns at night), or relax on the front porch swing and watch neighbors walk by.

The cottage is located in the vibrant Bouldin Creek neighborhood, one of only a few areas that make up SoCo. We are seven blocks off South Congress Avenue, best known for its fabulous shops, some of the best restaurants in the city, funky food trailers, great boutiques, and legendary music venues (the Continental Club). We are also two miles from outstanding parks like Barton Springs and Zilker Park, and one mile to Ladybird Lake Trail and Auditorium Shores.

Reviewer Comments:

We loved the house and its location. It was clean and well appointed. There were 2 issues: the dreadful mattress on the bed in the back bedroom and that the deck, chairs, and table were festooned with tree debris. In the case of the bed, we managed to sleep with only one person in the bed which we termed a "taco" since it became the shape of one with 2 people in it. It was far less uncomfortable with 1 person but still not conducive to a good night's sleep.

Owner's Response: We can not thank you enough for providing us with this feedback on your stay. We are glad that you enjoyed your time in Austin and our home. Unfortunately the unusual wet spring that we have had continues to leave behind tree debris in the backyard on our spacious deck. The rain has brought with it cooler weather though so we can't complain too much if the outdoor space is a bit more "outdoorsy" (besides we are glad that it is filling up our beautiful lakes!). The back bedroom is a lovely Sterns and Foster pillowtop mattress that can be soft at times but ultimately is a real dream to sleep on. In the future if you let us know that something is unsatisfactory we have a 24/7 guest support line to fix any issues that might arise. In this instance we could have sent someone to sweep up the backyard and/or drop off an air mattress. Here at TurnKey we are dedicated to making your stay enjoyable. Again, we sincerely appreciate the feedback. Thanks, TurnKey Vacation Rentals

Great house, clean, and really nice sized yard for our dogs. If you need to go to south Austin and need a house, I would recommend this one. It's close to everything and we pretty much walked everywhere we went including zilker park.

Reviewer Comments:

The 2-bedroom Bouldin cottage we rented was outstanding. My husband and I are retirees visiting our children in Austin. The location was perfect to access all the restaurants along S. First St. and it was not too far to walk over to the Continental Club and Guero's Oak Garden on South Congress to listen to music. The two bedroom had comfortable beds and empty closets and chests of drawers for our clothiers. Since we stayed for 15 days, storage like this is important. The kitchen was beautiful, open and outfitted with dishes, pots and pans, glassware and utensils aplenty. The backyard deck was terrific although this time of year the live oaks were raining down leaves and debris at an astounding rate. We had to sweep every day, twice a day to maintain some cleanliness. We made good use of the excellent washer and dryer. There were only a few minor details I would change: the kitchen lacked a vegetable peeler and pot holders for cooking; placemats or table cloth for the glass dining table would have been nice. We also wished we had had an outdoor grill. The service hired to cut the grass started working at 7:20 right outside our bedroom windows which I think is a tad early! Finally, while the Turnkey reservation system worked well and we had no important issues, I prefer a slightly less automated experience.

Owner's Response: Hello Jeanne & Pat, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, we always do appreciate it. The feedback is great, and we could have taken care of some of the issues for with the kitchen utensils. The time you were here, the cedar from the tree's was coming down and yes it played havoc on peoples balconies, hopefully you were able to enjoy some relaxing mornings out there. Sounds like you got to enjoy the area. South Congress is always one of your favorite areas as well. Thank you for staying with us for this extended period and hopefully we can see you again on your next family trip to Austin ~ TurnKey VR

sweet little house in the perfect location! ability to walk to town, zilker park, SoCo and lots of other great spots. house was clean, but not spotless, and the beds were a bit soft for our personal tastes. loved the front porch swing, and the back patio--although we were disappointed that the lights strung through the trees didn't work--i'm certain it would have been magical.

Except for a minor issue with WiFi connectivity (instructions provided were not correct), the house was in a great location. Our family enjoyed the stay and would return in the future.
