Fantastic location - walking distance to a number of restaurants, Whole Foods, Lady Bird Lake running trails. Enjoyed the house very much - thank you Mike.

Management response:

Ryan and his group came to Austin to enjoy Austin City Limits Music Festival and they had a good time. The weather was perfect and the music was great!

About the neighbourhood
In 1971 we moved the house to the rear of the lot. This gives the house a very unique privacy in downtown Austin. No other houses around. We are 2 blocks west of the Whole Foods at 6th & Lamar. This is the flagship Whole Foods store and I highly recommend a visit to all travelers. It has about 10 different eating areas inside and has something for everybody. As you walk further east on 6th st you are in the entertainment district, with dozens of bars and restaurants.
The Colorado River is about a quarter of a mile south and the Hike & Bike Trail is easily accessable. It is world-class and should not be missed. Barton Springs and Deep Eddy are both on the trail and are both spring-fed water holes with the water a constant 68 degrees, paradise on a hot summer day..
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: ABIA: 8.1 km
Railway: AMTRAK: 0.4 km
Go west on 6th st (it is one-way going west). After you pass the Whole Foods at Lamar get into the left lane and turn left at the second street, which is Walsh. You will see Sandys Supply on the right, my house is directly behind Sandys, turn right into the alley and you will see my house, can't miss it, its the only house around.
Please let me know when to expect you and I will be there to greet you, walk you thru the house, answer any questions you may have, and give you keys.
See you then.
