* TurnKey Vacation Rentals verifies this home is professionally cleaned with products approved by the EPA for use against COVID-19. * Newly remodeled and ready for your stay, this 1BR, 1BA (sleeps 2) Austin casita is surrounded by lush landscaping on the Old Bouldin Family Farm (they settled here in 1850!). Don’t miss our resident donkeys, who love attention from guests. If you have a large group, don’t miss the sister property next door (search #589923 on VRBO and HomeAway).Note: Property has window AC and heat units.INSIDE THE HOUSEYou know you’ve arrived at the property when you see the flagpole with beautiful stone wall behind.A stone path leads to the casita, where you’ll push open the iron gate and walk to the dark green front door. You’ll enter the property into the main living area with traditional Spanish tile floors.Put your feet up and enjoy a quiet night in, lounging in the living room on the two arm chairs and plush love seat. Spanish décor surrounds you, creating a warm ambiance.When it’s time for dinner, head into the adjacent kitchen, where you can cook up a storm. It comes with fridge, double sink, toaster, oven/stove and microwave. Brew up a cup of coffee on the Keurig and sit down at the kitchen bar with two bar-stools, perusing the newspaper.In the bedroom, the wrought-iron queen bed invites you to sleep like a baby. You’ll also find a 42” flat-screen TV, small chair, closet and dresser. The bathroom has a sink, toilet and stand-up shower behind the bright shower curtain.Double patio doors lead out to a peaceful wooden deck with 4-person bistro set overlooking the green bamboo landscaping. As you’re enjoying the garden, follow the short path to our pet donkeys, Bang and Ruth. They love to nibble on the grass and leaves and enjoy attention and a rub on the head.NOTE: Part of the charm of the property is its downtown location. That charming location comes with train noise, as trains run past the property at different times during the day and night. We don't mind the train but not everyone will find it as charming as we do.THE LOCATIONIf you don’t feel like brewing your own coffee, walk to Opa Coffee and Wine Bar (5 minutes on foot) in the morning and come back at night for a glass of vino.

Try breakfast at Snooze (3 minutes on foot), tapas at Barlata (4 minutes on foot) and Mexican at Sazon (5 minutes on foot).Head over to Lamar Boulevard and peruse the unique clothing boutiques, eclectic art galleries and other fun stores. Ricky Guerrero Park (8 minutes on foot) is a fun spot for all ages with picnic spots, creek to explore and playground and splash pad for the little ones.The Barton Springs Pool ( 5 minute drive) is a beautiful spot to spend the afternoon, swimming in the natural spring-fed pool and lounging under the stately oak and pecan trees. It’s part of the Zilker Metropolitan Park, which also houses the Zilker Botanical Gardens.Travel across the Colorado River into downtown Austin (5 minutes drive ) and check out the historic state capitol, LBJ Presidential Library and Bullock Texas State History Museum.OL# THE TURNKEY PROMISEWith TurnKey, you’ll always find unique vacation rental properties that provide a consistent, fine-hotel experience – Every Home.

Bradley S. This location was everything the advertisement said. We wanted to be near the city, but get that country vibe and the Casita provided that. It was a such a cute space, very clean, quaint, but walking distance from bars and restaurants. My favorite amenity though... the donkeys. They were so gentle, so docile. Whether it be a small family or a couple looking for a quiet retreat, this place was a very cute space.

Tamara H. The place was very nice, with the exception of the shower. I had to clean it and the shower liner was well used and needed to be replaced. But the location is wonderful, the donkey's friendly and not a bother, well decorated and the bed was comfortable.

I don't normally leave reviews, but breaking my tradition here. Beautiful place to stay. Like a small compound, under beautiful big trees and native plants, and a pair of donkeys to talk to. Now for the downside, train tracks back the property about 200 ft away, so bring some earplugs to help you sleep through the night. My biggest issues were with TURNKEY VACATION RENTALS. We arrived after our check-in time, and the door code didn't work, so I had to call them and wait for them to reset the new door code. Light bulb was out on the stove top (which we replaced), there was a long black hair left in the shower floor by the cleaning service TURNKEY uses, and they left only 1 bath towel for 2 of us staying multiple days. After calling again, TURNKEY took care of it and credited me back $25 for the inconvenience. They graciously extended our last day check out time to noon, however the door code reset around 10am and we were unable to come and go, and had to leave the unit unlocked upon departure. After having to pay a $50 non-refundable damage fee, and a $110 "Professional" cleaning fee, and a $46 booking service fee, I've learned my lesson, I will avoid rental properties that are managed by TURNKEY.
