This newly remodeled, modern 3BR, 2.5BA house with pool is in a quiet, residential neighborhood, yet only 5 minutes from downtown and SOCO/South 1st. Easy access to bus lines and walking distance to the hike-and-bike trail!

The space

The house was completely remodeled with a modern architectural design as of June, 2014, including a gourmet kitchen with brand new appliances. It's in a quiet, residential neighborhood in central Austin within a 5 minute drive of S. Congress and downtown. This part of East Riverside is undergoing a lot of new development, including the newly completed boardwalk on the river that completes the 10 mile hike-and-bike loop trail through downtown. There are loads of great Mexican restaurants in walking distance, and 2 grocery stores close by (La Michoacana and H-E-B), plus the BuzzMill bar/coffee house, Mour cafe, and other restaurants plus a Walgreen's and 7-11. You can also easily rent kayaks and stand-up paddle boards across the street. There are several public bus lines on Riverside, including the airport bus. The private pool is a wonderful amenity for those hot Austin days and evenings. The house also comes with an herb garden.

We had a great stay in Austin! Catherine's house was a perfect fit for our party of 5. We enjoyed lounging by the pool and the house was very clean and spacious. Thanks again.

Catherine was great to work with. She responded instantly to any questions we had, also allowed an early check in which was a lifesaver!!! The house is modern and new and the pool is amazing!! Couldn't have asked for a better house or host. No complaints here, would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Our stay in Austin was made even more amazing by staying here. It was a great sized house and in a good location. It's not a long to walk to the city centre which is a good thing as sometimes getting a cab can be a bit of a nightmare. Everything was really clean and orderly upon arrival and the bedrooms were all good sizes. It's a house that makes you feel at home instantly. Just a shame we never had time to use the pool ;) Definitely recommended and will hopefully stay here again next year.

Catherine's house was great! Modern design. Love that brown leather furniture. Pool was refreshing. Plenty of space. We had 5 in our party and everyone had a bed on which to sleep (2 shared the master). Speaking of the bed in the master, it's soooo comfortable. Depending on the reason for your visit, the house has literally everything you could want. The reason I qualify that statement is location. Very residential. Seemed very safe. Not really walking distance to anything "local" to which you'd want to walk. Maybe there are some things to walk to that are more of a hike instead of a stroll, but in the Austin heat, we weren't up for aimless exploration. If you have a car or bike or don't mind paying for car service, you can be anywhere in less than 10-12 minute drive. But don't necessarily let my slightly negative opinion of the location turn you away (I still gave my overall experience 5 stars!)'ll miss an amazing house at a fair price if you do. Would definitely stay again.

Catherine was a wonderful host that went out of her way to make our stay in Austin awesome. She gave us a list of things to do in the city and even picked up a SXSW magazine for us and left it at the house. Her house is gorgeous and perfect for a family or a group of friends traveling together. Highly recommend this place!

Excellent house. Very efficient and stylish remodel. Very clean, including the pool. Convenient location, less than 15 minutes to almost all of Austin.

Book this place now!! What a great home in an area really close to downtown Austin by foot, bike or car. I hesitate to recommend it strongly since we would love to book it again next year if we're the same amount of people :). Catherine arranged for someone to meet us and show us around the house when we arrived, even though it was after 11pm. The house was beautiful and modern, and had absolutely everything we needed: towels, kitchen gear and appliances, and she even left us a couple bottles of red wine :). The pool was a nice bonus and was refreshing on hot days after a long hike or bike ride. The area is residential and very quiet. We definitely recommend staying at Catherine's. Jamie

I love diving trips to beautiful beaches, great food (of many varieties), literary fiction, live music/theater, and anything outdoors. I'm a professor with a very flexible schedule, so I'm often out of town. As a host, I'm hands-off and probably will not meet you in person. I'…
