Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Downtown - Cedar Street Condo

1 Bedroom 1 Bath Condo in the Heart of Downtown Austin

Location, location, location!!! You can't beat this downtown Austin location for work or play. Walk out your door and you will be in the heart of downtown Austin, next door to the Convention Center and just half a block away from hopping on the Cap Metro Light rail...not to mention grabbing a Starbucks coffee across the street. Walk just two blocks and you will be on 6th Street or in the Warehouse District of 4th Street, the two biggest nightlife areas of Austin with tons of bars, pubs and live music venues, as well as Congress Avenue and tons of downtown restaurants such as Eddie V's Prime Seafood, Vince Young Steakhouse, Piranha Sushi, Fogo de Chao and Moonshine Bar & Grill. Within four blocks is the famous Town Lake and its wonderful 10+ mile hike & bike trail. And a very short bus ride to the famous SoCo neighborhood. No car needed for this great location but parking is available if you need it. This downtown vacation rental lets you take care of business and fun at the same time and from the same place.

The reason to stay at Cedar Street Condo doesn't stop at the location. Step inside to a wonderful 1 bedroom, 1 bath condo located on the first floor inside a courtyard. This condo rental is like staying at a great boutique downtown Austin hotel with the amenities of an extended stay hotel. Features include granite countertops, full size, fully stocked kitchen with bar sitting area, walk-in closet and unique, one-of-a-kind artwork. Sleeping includes a queen-sized Sleep Number bed to fit anyone's style of mattress with super soft bedding and a queen size sofa bed with memory foam mattress (and pillow top mattress cover in closet for more comfort) in the living room. Other items of interest are the high definition TV with cable, free WiFi, full-size washer and dryer, central AC, iron/ironing board and pool access for those hot Texas days. Private parking spot is included.

City of Austin STR License #: OL 2014 048915 - In process of being renewed so can't accept short term rentals at this time. Check back in late April to see if I am available. I am able to rent out for rentals of 30 days or more.

About David

I am a young professional working in the online marketing field. I went to the University of Dallas for undergrad and University of Texas at Austin for my MBA. Married and the proud father of 4 wonderful kids. I love soccer...played it all of my life.

I want your stay to wonderful so I will do everything in my power to help make it that way. Just let me know how I can help.

David purchased this condo in 2004

Why David chose Austin

I bought this condo when I moved to Austin because of its location. I actually owned 2 identical units and lived in the other for 2 years by myself and another 2 years with my wife. We sold the one we lived in after we started a family but kept this one as a rental property. Decided to switch it to a short term rental after seeing how hard it was to find a place to stay in downtown Austin.

What makes this condo unique

I loved this unit in the condo because of the courtyard you walk into when you leave the unit plus the fact that you only share 1 wall with a neighbor.

Great Location

Nice condo in great location just a short walk to nightlife on 6th street. Was small for 3 adults better suited for 2. Owner and property manager were accessible and helpful.

Perfect place for a central Austin retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The property is in an amazing location. Great for conferences, partying downtown, or going to Town Lake. I have stayed at more than half a dozen properties throughout Austin that are on home away....this has been my favorite.

The condo itself is plenty of room for 2-3 people; 1-2 people would be ideal. Great covered parking behind a gate. All the amenities you could need.

David and his property manager were very easy and pleasurable to do business with; also very responsive.

Book this place, you won't be disappointed.

Fantastic location in downtown Austin

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here during a conference at the convention center, and the location cannot be beat. The condo is simple and clean, and had everything that I needed for my stay. The sleep number bed was very much appreciated as well.

Wonderful location, very neat and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I reached out to David early in the year to book for the week of the RTX Convention for my daughter. David was very accommodating. I wanted my daughter and her friends to have a relaxing trip close to the convention center. We had stayed in a hotel last year....cramped. overall, it was a wonderful experience and i highly recommend this property!

Thank you,

Elizabeth Murray

Owner's Response: Thank you Elizabeth for the review and thank you for choosing my condo. I'm glad to hear your daughter had a great trip to Austin and hope the convention went well for her. Being right next to the convention center is a great feature and is so nice if you ever just need to get in a quick nap between sessions. Please look me up the next time you or your daughter are visiting Austin.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location for Convention Center events, just across the street. Great security, with secure parking. Parking is best for mid-size SUV or smaller. larger vehicles are possible just not convenient. The condo is close enough to 6th street for easy walking but not to close that you are disturbed by the crowds. The Condo itself is clean and everything you need for a delightful stay. Short walk to the river where there is paddle board and boat rentals.

Very nice.
