Perks for the Parents

This design-led 1-floor house in the heart of Austin sleeps 6 + 1 and is within walking distance to music and art venues, artisan shops, gourmet organic groceries, and restaurants. The family-friendly property includes plenty of kids’ toys as well as fun for the adults with a kitchen perfect for entertaining, a full gym and a wine cellar prepared with bottles for purchase.

Why Kids Love it

Kids will love the unusual design features and the plethora of toys, games and outdoor activities, including the tree swing outside. The home has a kids’ twin bed with a twin trundle, as well as a teepee. A travel crib is available on request. Mueller Lake Park with a lake, amphitheater, picnic area and walking trails is a half hour walk away, or 5 minutes' drive.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 7 nights. The residence is spread out over 1 level and there are no internal or external stairs. The house is on a corner plot and the front lawn and garden with the rope swing is ungated from the roads so young children will need supervision in this area. There is parking at the property.

About the Location

The residence in the Cherrywood neighborhood of Austin, Texas and only 10 minute’s drive from downtown – perfect for easy access to music, food, and art festivals. The neighborhood is one of the prime locations for the annual East Austin Studio Tour. It is 20 minutes’ drive from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. Car rental is recommended to see the sights but there is good public transport accessible nearby.

Accommodation Details

The residence has 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms – one with a rain shower – on 1 floor. Within its walls is a large open concept family area with a kitchen/diner with seating for up to 12 and a living room with a picture window, plus a reading nook and a mud room. One bedroom has a kingsize bed and the other has 2 twin beds. There is a gym with a Murphy pull-down queensize bed. Outside is a large, partially shaded area with seating.

Style Notes

Artistic haven. Built in 1939 and fully renovated for modern family life, this residence boasts a beautiful design aesthetic, with exposed shiplap walls, black and white interest areas, and modern furniture and amenities, including several neon fixtures. We love the antique clawfoot tub, the bathroom wallpaper of preening creatures and the stunning modern art pieces that adorn many of the walls.

We are Christina and Carey and our 6-year old daughter Lola. Christina is a software designer and Carey directs a nonpartisan policy research agency. Our home is a newly renovated 1939 bungalow in the amazing and diverse East Austin neighborhood within walking distance of nationally acclaimed restaurants and a very short car ride to the most interesting bars and cafés in the city. Our beloved home is a true reflection of ourselves and we’re interested in exchange only experiences with other families.
