Stay & Play: Eastside Oasis
Do you have a vacation planned? If not, we can help. Let’s explore some of the best attractions in the city, including the State Capitol, the Barton Springs Pool, and the Lady Bird Lake Hike and Bike Trail. But first, you can drop your bags inside the home when you arrive and then switch to some walking shoes. We’ve got a short stroll two blocks north to the brand-new Cosmic Saltillo. This new Eastside venue features some of the most fabulous and eclectic outdoor architecture designs in town. Walk through free-standing water-filled pools, massive upcycled concrete blocks, local curated graffiti, and large green-scaped installations. Wander inside the giant gorgeous silo to grab a drink or coffee and a snack. This beautiful new space is perfect for an evening with friends before a night out.
Laughs & Liquors
Now, back on your feet. With a quick turnaround, you can grab tickets from the East Austin Comedy Club for some early evening laughs. Tickets are only $20, and they have shows at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. on the weekends. The club has an open bar every night and offers dim lighting, velvet curtains, and BYOB. It’s a small gem that’s easy to overlook. They host local and national acts, and some local comedies frequent this spot as a warm-up for a larger room during their tour in Austin. With as much talent that comes through, you don’t know who you’ll see! Hopefully, you caught the early show because it’s time for that last drink and late-night snack. We are walking 6 blocks east to Whisler’s, a rustic-chic watering hole featuring fresh cocktails, handcrafted Old-Fashioneds, and an extensive patio that features frequent live music shows. Finally, the Golden Tiger is outside. This impressive Golden Castle of a food truck has a Thai Chicken sandwich with sweet chili sauce, pickled serranos, red onion, and the sure-to-save-you meal ticket you need to rescue you from a crazy night. Let’s say our goodbyes and head back to the house. It’s time to crawl into those cozy beds and enjoy a spot for everyone to relax and get a night’s rest.
Coffee & Cisco’s Heroes
After a long night’s rest in the best vacation rental homes in Austin, let’s start with a coffee. Another short stroll from the house is Cenote, a local favorite with fresh daily bagel selections, small bites, and some of the best local roasts and Chais. Enjoy their outdoor patio, or if you need a more extensive breakfast, let’s try some delicious local food, like authentic Tex-Mex cuisine from Cisco’s Restaurant Bakery & Bar. Breakfast faves at this daytime institution with modest decor include migas & biscuits. It is an actual Austin original hosting governors, presidents, and football heroes.
Now, back to the house to relax and to get in the Pool! You’ll find that this vacation home has plenty to offer, from the gorgeous and large living spaces and comfy luxury white linens on each bed to the private backyard romantic casita perfect for those late Austin nights requiring a quiet and private entrance.
