Terms

The Property Manager (hereafter referred to as "we", "us", or "our") provides rental management services on behalf of homeowners ("Owners") who rent their properties (including the associated fixtures and furnishings)(the “Home”) to guests (the "Guest" or "you") seeking accommodations on a short term or long term basis (collectively, the “Services”). We are the Owner's property manager and authorized agent, who will perform the Services related to your reservation. By using the Home and Services, you agree to comply with and be legally bound by the terms and conditions of this guest agreement (the "Agreement"). This Agreement only applies to short term rentals and not long term rentals, which will be governed by the specific terms of your lease agreement with us.

1. Policies: Please treat our Owner's Home with the care you would at your own home and abide by following policies:

*Behave as you would in any home in which you live, with respect for property and neighbors.
*Unless otherwise stated in the Home listing, you must be over the age of 25.
*You will be an occupant of the unit during the entire reserved period and other occupants of the Home during your stay will be family members, friends, responsible adults or children under direct adult supervision.
*Do not exceed the maximum occupancy of the Home.
*No parties, noise that can be heard beyond the home lot line or in adjacent units, or any illegal activity may occur at the Home.
*No pets are allowed unless otherwise noted for specific properties and where you have paid a pet fee in connection with your booking in advance of your reservation.
*No smoking is allowed in or around any Home.
*Check-in time is 3pm and check-out time is 10am - we will notify you via email in advance if early check-in or late check-out will be available.
*Please use common courtesy at the home by keeping it clean, reporting any problems or damages, washing dishes as used, taking garbage to the outside bins, leaving towels in the bathrooms and sheets in the bedrooms, and not re-arranging furniture.

2. Cleaning: Each home will be cleaned and inspected by third-party cleaning contractors after your departure. We ask you to help us enable the cleaning crews as much as possible. They will appreciate simple things like leaving the home tidy, running the dishwasher, starting to wash the towels, and taking out the trash.

3. Swimming Pools, Hot Tubs, or Beach: If the home that you have reserved includes a pool or hot tub, or is on a beach, these can all be obviously dangerous. Guests should observe and adhere to all rules and policies as posted at the home and supervise all children at all times. Lifeguards are not provided. Decks and patios can be slippery when wet and can result in injury to anyone who is not careful. Guest accept and assumes all risks involved in or related to the use of a pool, hot tub, beach and deck/patio areas.

4. Home Damage Waiver: Each guest will be offered an optional Damage Waiver that protects you against unintended damage done to the Property. This is not insurance, and the Damage Waiver does not apply to intentional damage done by the Guest or your guests, or excessive wear and tear due to parties, smoking, pets or otherwise, or additional cleaning charges due to stains or spills, or fines incurred by the police or HOA due to noise, excessive trash or parking, or damage over the purchased amounts of either $3,000 or $5,000. If Tenant does not wish to purchase this Damage Waiver, a security deposit of $3,000, $5,000, or greater depending on Property will be required at the time of booking. If a Home requires an additional security deposit, we will explain this to you before confirming a reservation. Guest acknowledges that any damage or fines not covered by the Damage Waiver or above the amount of any security deposit can be charged to Guest (and Guest’s card on file). The Damage Waiver can be purchased up to the day prior to your reservation but not after it has started. You do not have to purchase this Damage Waiver. Please contact the Property Manager directly at if you do not wish to purchase the Damage Waiver.

5. Excessive Wear and Tear, Noise and Occupancy: If excessive wear and tear is found for the Home, or additional cleaning is necessary due to spills, trash left on site, stains to furniture, carpeting, linens, paint, wallpaper, or flooring, Guest authorizes the Property Manager to charge Guest for additional fees. Tenant will be provided with a receipt for any additional fees incurred upon request or as required by local laws or regulations. If at any time the maximum number of the Home’s occupants is exceeded or if we receive information about excessive noise, the Property Manager has the right to evict Guest and all occupants immediately and to charge Guest a minimum service fee of $250 with no refund for the balance of the remaining reservation. If any sign of smoking is discovered Guest authorizes the Property Manager to charge Guest an additional minimum $500 cleaning fee. Unless the reservation for the Home specifically allows a pet, if any sign of a pet is discovered, then Guest authorizes the Property Manager to charge Guest an additional minimum $500 cleaning fee. The Property Manager will return any balance of a security deposit to Guest, less any charges or amounts owed by Guest, within fourteen (14) days after the end of the reservation or as otherwise required by local laws or regulations. Any charges owed by Guest may be charged by the Property Manager to Guest’s card on file in addition to seeking any relief provided by law.

6. Maintenance and Access: We have the right to enter the home at any time during guest stay and we will diligently attempt to address maintenance issues as they occur. This is an associated risk of renting a single family residence or condo. If a maintenance issue occurs that cannot be fixed in a reasonable amount of time, and significantly affects your stay; we reserve the right to refund at our discretion or offer to relocate you to another home.

7. Phone and Internet: Unless otherwise specified, all homes are equipped with a high-speed Wi-Fi connection where service is available and we will provide you with any required Wi-Fi passwords.

Staples (salt, pepper, foils, wraps, etc) are generally stocked by the owner of the home, however the Property Manager cannot commit these supplies being present. Guest is responsible for replacing stocked items as they are consumed. If there is a special type of item you are accustomed to using please provide for those items by bringing them with you. Extra towels are always recommended for homes on the beach, or with a pool or hot tub.

I wouldn&#x2019;t stay here again. Hello, <br/><br/>My first experience with TurnKey Rentals has been a ****** one. I reached out to your team over the weekend in regards to the property I rented. I went through several customer service reps and nothing was resolved. Finally a Representative by the name of Rachel contacted me. Although, nothing was resolved, she was pleasant and refreshing to speak with. I had another member of your team hang up in my face and spoke to me very harshly. This person's tone and demeanor over the phone was truly unprofessional. <br/><br/>I called in regards to some issues with the home. Although, I know it was stated that leaves from the trees fall into the pool, the pool was truly dirty beyond that. Upon arrival we noticed the pool had a cloudy look and trash (like plastic cups and bottle floating). Your team ensured us it was clean, however It was not. You guys advised me that someone will come on Saturday morning to clean the pool and no one ever came. The pool system was not working or than the hot tub. We were unable to use the pool like we desired. <br/><br/>Inside the home one of the guests witnesses a RAT crawling across the kitchen counters. The bedroom sheets and comforters have stains. We had to strip our beds down and wash the bedding. The homeowners did not leave enough toilet paper out, so we were forced to go to the nearest store and buy our own. <br/><br/>I'm truly disappointed in how I was treated and how our experience went with this property. I would like to get a supervisor or even Rachel to give me a call at their earliest convenience. <br/><br/>My name is Brittany Montgomery, I rented 203 LeLand Ave, Austin, TX. I call be reached by email or at.<br/><br/>Thanks Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals; Thursday, July 2, 2020 Hi Brittany, Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We are very sorry that you had these issues at the property. We noticed that we were able to get the pool technician out to the property the day that you requested it. We are very sorry about any pests that may have been at the property, had you reached out to us we could have gotta a pest control company out to the property for you. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns by reaching out to our 24/7 guest service line. -The Turnkey VR Team

Has Potential But Needs Some Attention Upon arrival, we found the pool to be uncleaned. We skimmed the leaves (which we expected) but the floor of the pool had not been cleaned and getting in the pool made the water cloudy. The following day the owner showed up to say the pool was "swimmable" in spite of being dirty and on our departure the pool company arrived and actually did the cleaning. The oven in the main home did not work, the master shower leaked all weekend, the kitchen had a smell that even after disposal cleaners use of disinfectants lingered. Closet lights did not work (we tried new bulbs) and the kitchen glasses were few for a small group. Cookware was sparse and in need of some cleaning. Sadly, the property is nice but was not readied or maintained as it should be.There were a few other matters but this hits the mark. It has POTENTIAL but NEEDS some ATTENTION. Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals; Thursday, May 14, 2020 Hi Patrick, Thank you for taking the time to leave this review and we are so sorry to hear of the issues you had with the home. Please know that we have addressed many of these so that they will not be an issue moving forward. We appreciate you reaching out to let us know while you were there so we could try to help. Your feedback is great, and we have passed this on to the team as well to ensure that they can work on the other items that you identified. If there is anything further that we can do to assist you, please do not hesitate to reach out and let us know. – The TurnKey VR Team

Dirty house House was spacious and in a nice location. The house was also extremely dirty and smelly. The comforter had stains, there was dirt caked on the back of the wall behind the bed, we found someone&#x2019;s eye lash on the ironing board, no in e has cleaned under the beds in the guest house. Entire home needs cleaning from ceiling to walls to floors, and then freshening up.

Needs some TLC We arrived at the unit and it was clean however it really needs some work. It's tired and needs some TLC. It had great towels but as far as amenities it was lacking. No hand soap, kleenex, only one hair blower. The shower curtain fell on me after taking a shower. The kitchen supplies need replenishing. There were only 2 wine glasses. It had plenty of rooms but the linens need refreshing. Worn... the living room couch was broken on the side...this unit is NOT as nice as it was shown on the website. It was quite expensive and not worth the money. When we called turnkey, they said they would send someone over but no one showed up. However they did answer my texts in a timely manner. It could be a great place if they took better care of it. Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals; Wednesday, November 20, 2019 Hi Beth, Thank you for taking the time to leave this review, and we're so sorry to hear your stay with us wasn't as great as it should have been. Here at TurnKey, we strive to offer impeccable customer service before, during, and after your stay. It looks like our local Field Operations Team reached out to see if we could stop by to address your concerns, but we were asked to resolve any issues after your departure. Please know that we are following up on everything you've mentioned and will make sure any maintenance items are resolved and more wine glasses and new linens are purchased as needed. If there is anything we can still do for you, reach out anytime and let us know. -The TurnKey VR Team

Very spacious and a great location Pros <br/>- The price was very reasonable and a good value for the space and location<br/>- Fantastic location, walking distance to SoCo. <br/>- Lots of room to spread out<br/>- Charming older house with a pool<br/>- Access to laundry<br/>- Lots of room for parking<br/>- Lovely bedrooms, comfortable beds<br/>- Plenty of comfy blankets<br/>- Large dining table<br/>- Very cute neighborhood, walking distance to a park<br/>- The code for the doors was helpful (instead of meeting to get a key) <br/><br/>Cons<br/>- The house needs to be better stocked. Basics like cookie sheets, oven mitts, a kettle, a coffee maker that doesn't leak, a couple large pots and pans would be helpful<br/><br/>- The yard needed to be cleaned up. There were leaves and pollen all over the deck, yard and in the pool<br/><br/>- The hot tub was empty when we arrived. We filled it up but the remote to heat the pool and hot tub did not work. We couldn't start the heater from the main control board either.<br/><br/>- The couches are very old, worn and uncomfortable with room for only 4 people to sit. <br/><br/>- All the wires from the TV system were exposed and hanging down<br/><br/>This is a great house with lots of potential. It wouldn't take much to freshen it up. Invest in a few things like new living room furniture, an entertainment hutch to hide the wires and some new kitchen items and you could rent the house for much more. The main picture for the house is the pool and hot tub area which is why we rented this particular house. It would have been great it the heater worked. The kids braved the cold but it would have been more enjoyable if the heater worked. <br/> Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals; Friday, March 27, 2020 Hi Jennifer, Thank you so much for taking the time to post this review. We would like to sincerely apologize for any inconvenience you experienced. Here at TurnKey, your feedback is highly valued, and although we do try our best to offer the most impeccable service possible, there are times we fall short of that.

Great Rental We had a large group (16) stay here and absolutely loved the place. Was very clean with plenty of towels and shower supplies. Backyard pool and porch were great places to hang out especially in the Austin sun. Location is also perfect--right in the heart of Austin with several great places to eat within walking distance. Would definitely come back. <br/><br/>Additionally, Turnkey was very responsive when someone tried to mistakenly check into the poolhouse (he had gotten the AirBnB address wrong). They immediately sent security out to the property to help clarify the issue.

No Early CheckIns or Late Checkouts Here The property was very clean when we arrived. There was no propane for the grill, but the HEB on Oltorf had some. It was nice and cool inside despite being over 100 outside. The bedrooms and interiors aren't super modern or luxury, but still very nice, clean and well-maintained, not cheap or shabby at all. Great property for a group, good pool for socializing, great location in S. Austin...the surrounding properties are mostly rentals as well. We had a great time...but there are better deals in Austin, I think you're paying mostly for the size (not many places accommodate 16) and the location near S Congress, which is super hot, though most places are still an Uber away. All in all, it's a good property, BUT...<br/><br/>The reason I would not recommend this property is because of the check-in and check-outs: 3pm checkin and 10am checkout. No matter what you read in the listing, or are told by customer support, THE PROPERTY DOESN'T ALLOW EARLY CHECKIN OR LATE CHECKOUT. With a group of 16 people, moving everyone in and out takes time. Most of the day is gone by the time everyone is settled in on arrival, and finds a bed/couch/etc. And it's a scramble to get everyone packed, out of the house, and make sure the property is in good order by 10am. There was no reservation before or after ours, so they could have accommodated us, but it seems that no early-in/late-out is their policy. Wish that would have been made clear before I rented.<br/><br/>One other thing is that Turnkey doesn't allow you to split the cost with someone else, so I had to put the entire ~$3K (for 2 nights!) on my card, which honestly didn't kill me, but would rather not have.<br/><br/>If those 2 things don't bother you, then I would say go for it! Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals; Wednesday, September 26, 2018 Hi William, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review and share your experience!

Are you kidding me? I have been harassed by emails to review this company for two weeks, now, even after leaving a review with a different survey company. The continuous emails are obnoxious, and the mandatory contact outside of Airbnb to then use private data for your own marketing purposes is against Airbnb&#x2019;s terms of service, and is possibly illegal. Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals; Thursday, November 1, 2018 Hello Rob, Thank you so much for your review and helpful feedback.

You get what you pay for The house was... fine. Cheap to rent, clean enough, big enough, right by a 7/11 and south congress fun, kitchen stocked just enough. <br/>Pros = great location, very affordable, sleeps a lot of people, has a pool, several TVs, Austin property manager (Aaron) was very nice!<br/>Cons = spa was broken (and the spa was one of the main reasons we rented it), not even CLOSE to enough towels, smoke alarms go off the moment you start cooking anything, Turnkey was basically useless in terms of the information they had and their ability to help. Their Austin property manager and a discount because of the broken spa made up for it, but I'm not sure I'd rent from Turnkey again if I had other options.

Austin Stay Turn Key was incredibly difficult to communicate with since the booking of this property and our stay in Austin. It took hours to ultimately pay for the pool to be heated and every conversation with the management company took exponentially longer than necessary. We were denied early check in and late check out even though there was no one staying there the day before or after our leaving. The company refused to let me return to the property 1 hour after check out to get my cell phone charger which I left there. By the time they checked the property, said it was not there after no new visitors checked in. There was only 1 roll of toilet paper per bathroom and no paper towels for 13 guests. Although the house was clean enough and in a good location it was very overpriced and communicating with Turn Key was a heavy burden on the weekend. A great majority of the staff I spoke to were extremely rude. I would not rent another property from this company again.

Decent location, but NOT worth booking I booked this home for a bachelorette weekend stay. I had a very good experience with the TurnKey representatives prior to arriving in Austin and was expecting to have the same pleasant experience when I arrived at the house. THIS WAS NOT THE CASE!<br/><br/>#1 Early Check-in/ Late Check-out<br/>We chose this location based on the fact that there was the potential for early check in and late check out&#x2014;only to land in Austin and find out that this was NEVER an option in the first place. I know for a fact that there were no bookings for the house before or after us, but when I asked I was still denied and the TurnKey staff were not responsive after my attempts. For the money we spent on this property, the actual time you get to spend in the house is a joke and not worth it.<br/><br/>#2 House Issues<br/>The images are deceiving&#x2014; the house looks like a bright and updated home, but this is not the case. Definitely an older home and it showed through issues like: having no hot water for showers, hot tub doesn&#x2019;t actually get hot, the rear house definitely has a smell (some of the other reviews mentioned this) and the plumbing is not strong (one of the toilets broke while we were there). There also was a very creepy truck that was parked in the front of the house, not sure who&#x2019;s it was or why it was there, but caused for us to question.<br/><br/>#3 Cleanliness <br/>When we arrived we noticed that the overall house was bare bones so don't expect too much, but it was clean upon first look. However, again this was NOT actually the case. We had the following issues: the backyard and pool were dirty and full of debris upon arrival (when I asked that it be cleaned I was told there was a skimmer I could use myself to clean the pool) and to make matters worse there were stains on a few of the bedroom sheets. <br/><br/>Long story short, I would not recommend this property to anyone. You can find much better locations for the same or better pricing.

PLEASE READ ALL REVIEWS BEFORE CONSIDERING!!!! In my opinion,this home has far too many issue to convey fairly in a review. First let me state, "The outside looks exactly like the photo." That is the best of a review that I can offer. From the moment I walked around the non lite side of the house to enter from the back, things went downhill quickly. The front door is highly suspect in terms of safety. We could not/ would not ever stay in anything like this. We paid $4000. plus dollars for three nights, and barely stayed in the home for one night. I will rely upon all of the previous reviews to be my voice, because I read them, and I did not heed them. There are hundreds of homes within the city of Austin that will provide you with amazing comfort. And, Turnkey happens to manage many of them! This home does not reflect what we experienced in any of the other homes we rented through Turnkey. We had a total of 150 guest, and all if not most rented through Turnkey or Airbnb. This was the only home out of all of them that was not satisfactory at all.<br/>You can take this review or leave it. Once Turnkey responds, you can take their response or leave it as well. I have emails addressing my concerns about this house before we rented it, and was assured that all issues from previous visits had been fixed. I also have photos to show what the inside really looks like. If I could give it no stars, I would!

Great location, great size, but... Pros: The home was a great size for our group of 6 and the location was great! The home was clean upon arrival. Even though someone checked out that morning and early check-in wasn't available. Turnkey permitted us to drop our bags at the house early and head to lunch before coming back at the regular check in time. That was awesome!!<br/><br/>Cons: We were not notified (neither was Turnkey) that a pool was being built in the yard, so we had to stare a backhoe and a bobcat every time we left. The backyard was all dirt. We were told by Turnkey that the housekeeper had heard a fire alarm chirp because the battery was low, but they didn't change them. We didn't hear the chirp until 2:30am the day we had to wake up by 5am for our flights. Then it chirped the rest of the night. I'm not sure why a cheap & easy fix wasn't made from the start, especially since this is a safety issue. Simultaneously on that night, there was a squirrel inside the walls of the upstairs loft near the chimney which made sleeping impossible. <br/><br/>I've heard back from Turnkey regarding the pool construction issue the day we checked in, but at 48 hours past my checkout, I have yet to hear resolution to my emails regarding the fire alarm and the squirrel. <br/><br/>A recommendation of this home would be conditional, if the homeowner and Turnkey are in better communication about the home's repairs and completion of construction.

Perfect house for a girls' weekend! We had a great weekend staying here! House was very clean when we got there, and had all the right amenities. I would say that the cookware is a little sparse, which I had read beforehand so I brought an extra pan and we were good to go. The house such a great layout and great backyard and patio. One thing I was not aware of before getting to the house was that the backyard was under construction as they are putting in a pool. So, for those who are going in the next couple of months, don't bank on being able to use the backyard for grilling out etc. The patio worked for us. It rained a majority of the time we were there so the backyard turned into a big mud pit, and the only way to enter was to go through the backyard. So, just a heads up!

Congress, plenty of space in the main house for 11-12 people including the blow up bed, nice dining table and table on outdoor porch.<br/>Cons: pool under construction in the back, which is the rental entrance, so you have to navigate muddy and slightly treacherous areas to get in and out. The house was 52 degrees when we checked in at 8, and it took 5.5 hours to just get up to 65. The microwave, toaster, and dishwasher all didn't work, perhaps because of a kitchen fuse issue? Not a well-stocked kitchen, so bring your own things if you want to cook.

Solid Stay I stayed at this house for a few days with some friends for a long weekend. The location is fantastic. $7 uber rides to 6th street. The house has plenty of room and the bedrooms are comfortable. However, a few small changes to the house would make a world of difference for guests. When we got there, the grill didn't have gas so I needed to replace the tank on my own expense. There was a leftover pizza box under the coffee table from the previous guest. There is a lack of kitchen supplies. The stove in the kitchen did not work. I would also recommend putting some concrete around the pool as it can get quite muddy with the grass going right up to the edge. Overall, a decent stay. The house just needs a little love.

Austin Wedding This property is not maintained well enough to be a rental. The access was very unsafe due to a large, slippery, mud puddle - - the mud was about 1" on the sidewalk and driveway. Really bad smell in the back part of the house, that worsened during our 4 days. Very lacking in furnishings in the kitchen. Only 4, very worn towels - - not enough for the 16 people this house sleeps. Shower facilities need maintenance with plumbing issues, tile falling off the walls, and no curtain. Overall, this house and cottage have potential with adequate space, and great location. However, it needs a lot of attention to bring it up to "rental quality". Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals; Tuesday, July 7, 2015 Dear Brenda, thank you for staying with us and providing the feedback. With the records amount of rain that Austin has received this spring and summer, the landscaping from the pool renovations have been a challenge. With our drier temperatures lately, this has physically dried up. We had been able to drop off the additional requested linens and towels and the two tiles that came loose from the shower have since been replaced. This has long been one of most popular homes we rent and we will ensure it is maintained with a high quality for our guests ~ TurnKey VR

The house is around 20 mins from the airport, so it was an easy (and affordable) cab ride.<br/>There is an enormous amount of space available between the main house and back house (we had 13 stay).<br/>The rooms are large, the house was extremely clean and the kitchen was very functional, with pots and pans etc.<br/>The location itself was excellent with lots of shops, restaurants and bars on Congress and then it was about a 40 min walk into downtown.

Unfortunately I was unable to attend this vacation due to a medical issue but the people I was sharing the house with have me some feedback. The house was great for a group, nice and open and the location was awesome. They said the outside of the house could have used some cleaning- removal of leaves, pollen, etc and that the upstairs of the house had some dead bugs and dust balls. Also, the girls sleeping in the loft wee kept up by an animal or animals making noise in the wall. They had to call two times to get more towels and when they did some of them were torn and ratty.

We had a great weekend staying here! House was very clean when we got there, and had all the right amenities. I would say that the cookware is a little sparse, which I had read beforehand so I brought an extra pan and we were good to go. The house such a great layout and great backyard and patio. One thing I was not aware of before getting to the house was that the backyard was under construction as they are putting in a pool. So, for those who are going in the next couple of months, don't bank on being able to use the backyard for grilling out etc. The patio worked for us. It rained a majority of the time we were there so the backyard turned into a big mud pit, and the only way to enter was to go through the backyard. So, just a heads up! The pool will be a great addition and I would definitely like to stay here again and take advantage of that! Overall it was a really great experience and I have already recommended it to friends looking for an Austin weekend with a house in a great location!

Pros: The home was a great size for our group of 6 and the location was great! The home was clean upon arrival. Even though someone checked out that morning and early check-in wasn't available. Turnkey permitted us to drop our bags at the house early and head to lunch before coming back at the regular check in time. That was awesome!!<br/><br/>Cons: We were not notified (neither was Turnkey) that a pool was being built in the yard, so we had to stare a backhoe and a bobcat every time we left. The backyard was all dirt. We were told by Turnkey that the housekeeper had heard a fire alarm chirp because the battery was low, but they didn't change them. We didn't hear the chirp until 2:30am the day we had to wake up by 5am for our flights. Then it chirped the rest of the night. I'm not sure why a cheap & easy fix wasn't made from the start, especially since this is a safety issue. Simultaneously on that night, there was a squirrel inside the walls of the upstairs loft near the chimney which made sleeping impossibl

We had a group of 8 adults who traveled to Austin to race in Cyclocross Nationals. The house was in the perfect location - a short bike ride to the park, walking distance to tons of restaurants and shops and a great grocery store. We struggled with the lack of equipment in the kitchen - basics like a strainer for the pasta, cooking utensils and a second fry pan. Some of the plumbing fixtures needed to be updated.

TurnKey Rentals was so easy and great to work with. It was almost effortless. This property in particular, was exactly as advertised and the even slightly nicer than the photos. It was the perfect retreat for a college reunion but would also be a great getaway for a family or couple or couples. The place was clean and had a great kitchen and comfortable beds etc. No rpoblems at all. The only thing missing from what we saw online was how great to location was! it's on a nice quiet street but there's a 24 hour 7-11 2 blocks away, this great placy Lucy's Chicken a very cool bar and resturant and it's a much shorter walk (10 min) than we expected to all the bustle of prime south congress like Guerros and The Continental Club...and the Magnolia Cafe (24 hr/ an Austin Institution) 3 minutes away.
