Vacation Condo Rental Description:



April 2015 brings LOTS of updates to this charming little casita! Now featuring a shiny new kitchen with granite countertops!! Everything from furnishings and decor, to bedding and household essentials have been updated and replaced - a wonderful "refresher" for a property that has always been a favorite for guests visiting South Central Austin.

Located in the charming historic neighborhood of Travis Heights, the home is near bustling South Congress Ave. 2 blocks away from Stacy Park which offers a heated spring fed swimming pool, walking trails/green belt and a playground with toddler pool & tennis courts! Easy access to grocery, shopping, dining and entertainment.

This property is a duplex with a friendly homeowner in the other unit. The houses have separate entrances/outside areas and the shared living room wall has been excellently soundproofed. You'll access your rental via the gated driveway in the alley, so it all feels very private.

Secure wireless internet and cable with DVR. House is fully outfitted with cooking utensils, etc. One covered carport space available for parking inside a gated driveway. There is a washer and dryer available in the carport.

Near all of Austin's central bus lines with cheap Uber rides to all the favorite Austin spots.

Pets are welcome at this property, but please discuss with us and obtain approval before making your reservation, as there are some restrictions and rules.

Great Stay
A guest from Dallas, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in March, 2015
Had a great time staying in Austin at the Kenwood Casita. The property was exactly as described and SPOTLESS when we arrived. It was fully stocked with dishes and a coffee pot.My only complaint would be that the keypad to open the gate was buried behind vines - made it very hard to find in the dark when we arrived.

Thanks Mary! Those vines grow fast in the spring! :-) We'll cut them back again, thank you for letting us know.

January and February at the Kenwood Casita
A guest from Lewes, DE recommends this property.
Stayed for 17 days in January, 2015
We had a wonderful time at the Casita. We love the backyard and the full afternoon and evening sun! We spent every morning running up and down the hills on Live Oak....and evenings sipping wine and eating our picnic meals in the backyard!The house is small, easy to keep, well equipped and close to every downtown Austin experience you could ask for!The owner is so immediately responsive to any request that is deemed appropriate! We will be back every winter!

Right in the Heart of Austin
A guest from Kingwood, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in December, 2014
Our "mid-century casita" was most comfortable. We found it to be clean with all necessary amenities, including a most comfortable bed, lovely thick towels and plenty of hot water. The wifi served us well, it was well temperature controlled, and our doggies loved romping on the hill, outside. We especially enjoyed being so close to Congress St. and our family off of Lamar, without lots of outside noise. I'd be happy if this unit were available again when we stay in Austin, and would recommend it to anyone needing comfortable quarters in the area.

We loved this place. Such a great location, and a very clean and comfy property. We walked to South Congress many times.The management was professional, very helpful and responsive, even on the weekend. We'd stay here again, no question.

Kenwood Casita-great little duplex
A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in October, 2014
Great rental. Small but we only needed a place to lay our head at night (but definitely bigger than a hotel!) Very nice having a gated driveway. Will absolutely stay again!

No surprises
Reviewed by: Brad v. recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in August, 2014
The unit was exactly what was described. It is a little older than some other places we looked at, but it was clean, well maintained, in a great location and had everything we needed. The shower head was not great, the water came out too hard and it felt like needles on the skin, but we found that in a lot of places in the US.

Great Stay in the Kenwood Casita!
Linda I. from Houston, Texas recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in August, 2014
We had a wonderful weekend in the comfortable Kenwood Casita! Brooke from the management company was great and called me right back after I called her with one question There were many nice gestures such as regular and decaf coffee in the kitchen and shampoo in the shower. The driveway was a little treacherous but the street parking was plentiful. We would definitely stay there again!

A nice location
A guest from Miami, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in March, 2014
We had a wonderful stay at the Kenwood Casita. Our goal was to be located near our daughter, whom we were visiting. This location was ideal for us. When we arrived, things were freshly cleaned. The appointments were fashionable and comfortable. Everything we needed was in the kitchen. We appreciated the coffee, sugar and creamer provided for us. The wireless was necessary for us to answer some work emails, that was also working fine. The TV offered necessary channels, especially to view the NCAA championship basketball games. Everything was in working order. We had a car which we parked in the gated parking. The slope was a little tricky for the model of car we had, just takes a patient driver. Brooke was accomodating with our dates of stay and was available by phone/text to answer questions promptly. We suggested some extension cords and additional mirrors in the bedrooms near outlets, since the bathroom is small, making it a little tight for hairdrying and makeup application. Brooke listened to our suggestion and has probably made this modification for future guests already. Our deposit was returned promptly upon our return home. This was our first experience with VRBO and we would do it again. If we make return trips to Austin we would consider this rental again. For tourists, we recommend a day trip (or a couple of days) to San Antonio. We used the Mega Bus which picked up at the UT campus. Also, the BBQ at Franklins IS WORTH THE WAIT. We arrived around 8:30 am on a beautiful weather day and made friends in line. We got our brisket and ribs around 12:30, just in time for lunch at our daughter's apartment. In the evenings, we had fun at Rainey Street and enjoyed sausage at Banger's. The piano bar on 6th street is a blast!

Great Stay!
Michelle S. from Austin, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in March, 2014
We had a great time the week we stayed here. The place was perfect and the neighborhood was awesome. We walked to SoCo for diner and I accessed the Town Lake hike and bike trail every morning to run. The management was friendly and quick to respond when we arrived early check in day and allowed us to get in a few hours early. Would stay here again and again.
