  • 3BR Colorful SoFi House, 1

    Austin: Vacation Rental
    3 BDR • 2.5 BA • Sleeps 8 • #229429
    511 to 1,491 USD/night
    Personality-packed 3BR, 2.5BA rental house just one block from SoFi (S. 1St St). Walk to cafes, restaurants, dive bars, food trucks, vintage shops, art galleries and countless other businesses that make this area quintessentially Austin!. Bring your favorite people to this 3-bedroom, 2.5 bath vacation rental house just one block from SoFi, one of Austin’s most popular business districts (also known as S. 1St St.). Walk to cafes, restaurants, dive bars, food trucks, vintage shops, art galleries and countless other businesses that make this area quintessentially Austin. Or live like a local and have an evening cookout in your tree-shaded backyard. INSIDE THE HOUSE All 3 bedrooms are located upstairs. And bring a couple extra friends along: the living room sofa folds out into a queen bed, and we can also provide a queen-size air mattress upon request. Put together, this home can sleep up to 11. The master bedroom has a downy queen-size bed and private access to a balcony spanning the whole length of the house. Perch among the treetops in a pair of vintage-modern rocking chairs. Even better: the master bath is an over-the-top treat with a giant, glass-enclosed shower and a double vanity. The 2nd bedroom also has a queen-sized bed. The 3rd has a full-size bed as well as a twin—a great set-up for kids or a family with kids. In the large living area, the mid-century modern furniture is arranged into 2 separate conversation areas: one around a fireplace and one around the flat-screen TV. The equally gorgeous eat-in kitchen features stainless steel appliances and barstool seating for 4 at the center island also with a TV. Beside the kitchen, a designer dining table effortlessly seats 8 people for a feast, with another TV on the wall for some added entertainment. Or head outside to the fenced backyard and chow down on burgers from the grill. The outdoor living area includes a picnic table and cushioned seating, so you can uncork a bottle of wine and spend the evening out here chatting under a string of twinkling outdoor lights. THE LOCATION But we won’t blame you if you never get around to cooking at home. Our location is just a block from SoFi, where some of Austin’s best eating awaits. Having trouble deciding where to start For vegetarians, we love Bouldin Creek Cafe, just a block from the house. On the opposite end of the spectrum, try Tommy Want Wingy, a chicken wing food truck that’s also just a block away. And those are just the very close options. South Austin is also a food truck paradise, with “trailer parks” serving up some of the most innovative (yet inexpensive) food in Austin. Unfortunately, there are only 3 meals in the day. Spend the rest of your time exploring Austin. Our vacation rental is just 2 miles from Zilker Park, where you can bike/walk the miles of trails, then take a dip in the natural-fed Barton Springs Pool. And don’t miss the iconic “Greetings from Austin” Postcard Mural—just a 2-minute walk from the house. In short: there is no better place in Austin to stay if you want to discover what the fuss is all about. The City of Austin limits occupancy to six unrelated adults.
