I moved to Austin in 1995 and immediately fell in love with this town. I had no doubt that this is where I would settle once I graduated from UT. We are a family of 5 and decided to rent this great house to Austin's finest visitors. I love interacting with travelers and try to accommodate any individual needs you may have. If you need tips on anything in Austin, please don't hesitate to ask.
Denny Young purchased this house in 2003
Homes that were built in the 1920's are unique. This property is in GREAT shape and just a few cosmetic touch-ups restored its beauty and preserved its essence. The house is very cozy with a solid construction.
This house has all the modern amenities necessary for comfort. Located on a quiet block, near a park and just walking distance to nearby restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores and more. Centrally located, a short bike ride or super fast car ride to downtown. The house is cozy and warm, great to just lounge around and relax. It has a great front porch, to check out the neighborhood, and a great back yard for grilling and hanging out.
We were staying in Austin for the ND v UT football game and were very happy with our selection of the property. Everything we needed was on site and the house was very comfortable for a group of 4. There are loads of eateries and options within walking distance, but the house is supremely quiet through the night. Our hosts were organized and have everything outlined in their welcome letter. Thanks for a great stay, Denny and Michelle!
We stayed here over the weekend with our two children (ages 3 and 5) and it was a perfect place for us. The location is wonderful, the house is cute and historic. It was also very clean and well taken care of, with plenty of towels and other amenities. I recommend this to anyone looking for a place to stay in Austin. Our kids already want to go back!
Great place to stay while visiting Austin - we were here for SXSW. In nice leafy suburb, easy taxi / bus ride, and short walk to a good healthy food market. Comfortable, clean, fully equipped. Sunny backyard with picnic table was perfect for breakfast and morning exercise.
My girlfriends and I had such a nice time here. Such a cute place and in a very nice neighborhood close to everything. I would highly recommend staying here. Communication with Michelle also couldn't have been easier.
The location is perfect and the house was delightful. We spent happy hours in the back yard. As others have said, do take many walks around the neighborhood and visit Hemphill Park nearby. We were here for a month and wish we could have stayed longer.
The home was exactly as described, comfortable, clean and stocked with the basics. We would recommend it to others and stay there again. Quiet neighborhood near University with a variety of restaurants nearby.
Stay in the heart of central Austin in historic Hyde Park, just blocks from the University of Texas campus and five minutes from downtown. Walk to great restaurants, bars and coffee shops - like local favorites Trudy’s Tex Mex, Kerby Lane Café, Hyde Park Grill, Central Market, Spiderhouse and more. The Erwin Center, Blanton Museum of Art, Bob Bullock State History Museum, LBJ Presidential Library and Museum, and Royal-Memorial Stadium are just around the corner. Minutes away find the hike and bike trails of Lady Bird Lake, Barton Springs Pool, Austin Convention Center, Texas State Capital, 6th Street District, South Congress Avenue, The Long Center for Performing Arts, Paramount Theater, Palmer Events Center, Zachary Scott Theater, and the Moody Theater – the new home of the legendary Austin City Limits TV show. Austin’s famous live music venues are all close by, as are many SXSW showcase locations and the ACL Festival in Zilker Park. Lake Austin and the wineries and wildflowers of the Texas Hill Country are 30-minutes away.
