Stylish duplex with private washer/dryer, full kitchen, and fenced courtyard!
Come in and breathe easy! This light and airy duplex is a perfect home base for your next Austin adventure (especially during SXSW!). Guests can prepare meals together in the full kitchen, then eat together at the diner-style breakfast bar. The private washer/dryer set will help everyone stick to their schedules and be prepared. In the evening everyone can gather around to talk about their day in the fenced-in courtyard (not shared with the home next door).
What's nearby: This home is set in the Zilker Neighborhood in South Central Austin, close to downtown and other famous Austin attractions. Guests can easily walk to Zilker Park, where the Austin City Limits (ACL) Music Festival is held every year. Local cuisine in the neighborhood is fantastic! We recommend East Side King (award-winning Asian-fusion), 24-hour Kerbey Lane Cafe, (an Austinite favorite), and Torchy's Tacos (where you'll find some of the best queso you've ever had). All three are within one mile of the home! Check out The Broken Spoke on South Lamar if you want a real cowboy to show you how to two-step, just under one mile away. Just over a mile north on Lamar is Saxon Pub, where Austin's favorite working class musician Bob Schneider performs weekly live shows on Monday nights with one of his bands, Lonelyland. Of course, downtown Austin is just over three-and-a-half miles to the north.

I spent six weeks here while my condo was being remodeled. It was what I was looking for: comfort, convenience, safety/security. Fully furnished kitchen which I used everyday because of pandemic. Excellent clothes washer and dryer. Plenty of room for one person. I had two problems which were resolved quickly. The water was shut off but it was a City of Austin issue. The combination door lock was not easy to use and the regular code quit working. Vacasa gave me the emergency backup code so I could enter. Things that would have made my stay better: a door lock that is easier to use, a bathtub mat for safety, a knife sharpener in the kitchen, and a patio light.

Lovely stay, we had a relaxing time and fun. Quite and calm neighborhood, neighbors are so nice and friendly. I would definitely come back again. All the pictures are exactly what you see. Really clean and organized.
We stayed in Mellow Yellow #1 for a week while our having renovations done in our home. We = 2 adults, 1 energetic 4 year old boy and one almost crawling 9 month old girl and 1 dog. We had a fabulous time. Kitchen was well equipped, beds comfortable, bathroom nice, laundry available, location was great.
A clean, spacious duplex greeted us on our recent stay in Austin. Well-located in the south, central area, the unit was quiet, well laid-out, and with a large, fenced-in back yard for our two doggies. It was also well-appointed with everything we needed for a most comfortable stay. We'd request it again, next time we're in Austin.
We stayed at Mellow Yellow when our builder extended our closing date. We lived there for a little over two weeks. Such a great location! It was very clean when we arrived. The place was amazing. We arrive and noticed that the microwave was not working. Management replaced it the very next day. It had everything you would need for a short or longer term rental. The kitchen was inviting to cooking, the living room cozy, and the bedrooms comfortable. I would recommend Mellow Yellow to friends coming to Austin.
We loved our stay at The Yellow Mellow 1. The place was great and had everything that we could have possibly wanted. The location couldn't have been better. We immediately felt comfortable. We hope that it will be available for our next visit.
I slept like a baby here. Great location, very walkable. The kitchen is pretty and easy to work in. Nice big TV in the living room for winding down at night.
The Mellow Yellow house was everything we needed. Very comfortable and well-located for our needs, and extremely clean. It was a shame we didn't get to use it more as we were just in and out to sleep. We will definitely consider staying there again in the future!
This property was great to stay in for a couple of days in Austin. It was clean and had everything we needed including soap, shampoo, conditioner, iron, ironing board. Many items included that I have seen missing from other VRBO properties. We needed a pack and play and high chair for our baby that weren't there when we arrived, but I called Brooke and one was delivered right away. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!
Very good and very comfy place ti stay. A lot of places tongo nearby, zilker park is about a 50 minute walk away. Easy communication with Emerson Guest Properties.
Great spot for the botanical garden, and Umlauf sculpture garden, museums, and Moody Theater for Dave Chappelle! Thanks so much for the wonderful weirdness of Austin!
My friends and I live all around the greater Austin area, and needed a place to stay closer to town for South by Southwest for work and vacationing reasons. Because we were so busy with the festival we spent only small amounts of time at the Mellow Yellow, but enjoyed every second. The style of the house felt like home to us right away. Simple, clean and so well equipped. We had access to absolutely everything we needed to thoroughly enjoy our stay. I was very happy to find multiple types of coffee and tea on hand. As well as loads of clean linens, utensils and cups. Fast WiFi and cable TV were a huge bonus that we took advantage of very briefly. I feel very lucky we had great neighbors! Absolutely no noise complaints on either end,although the walls are so solid I don't think that could even be a problem. One more awesome addition, is that there are two bus stops very close to the house We all took full advantage of this to save a lot of money on transportation. Thanks you guys!! We loved staying here!
We found the place to be very accommodating and comfortable. Our chocolate Lab took to it right away, and enjoyed his walks through the neighborhood
This is a really lovely property that is impeccably and intuitively decorated. We had just as much fun hanging out here as we did exploring the rest of Austin -- especially considering the unseasonable coldness that hit the city the weekend we were there. Thank you!
This trip we stayed in Mellow Yellow #1, and had an equally good time as staying in MY2 next door. The location is great for entertainment in South Lamar's many venues, as well as being close to our family's home. Everything you need is here.
We absolutely loved staying at this cute and centrally located home.The house was just perfect for our stay. We easily had access to the downtown area of Austin, grocery stores, great cafes and restaurants, and many food trucks. We felt like the location was prime and made our stay a delightful home base with so much around us. We will definitely recommend and return. Thank you so much.
We loved our time in The Mellow Yellow: clean, warm, and great location made it a perfect choice for our long weekend in Austin. Would absolutely recommend!
Comfortable, clean and cheerful apartment. We didn't prepare meals but the kitchen had all the basics (coffee, tea, sweetener). Lots of counter space in bathroom and a super shower. Plenty of fresh, high quality towels. Comfortable beds. Extra closet space and hangers available. Convenient washer and dryer. Turn right out of the driveway and walk two blocks to Confituras-excellent biscuits, jams and coffee (look for the red door). We walked to downtown and to South Congress, but Uber was also available. Great walking trails nearby at Barton Springs!
Great - Everything was clean and nice, we didn't need anything. Good location. A plus was the bottle of oil and vinegar and the salt and pepper so we didn't have to buy those for just a few days.
My girlfriend and I met in Austin to celebrate a special birthday. We rented the Mellow Yellow #1 duplex and it was perfect for our needs. The space was clean and well organized, the location is convenient, and the check-in and check-out process is efficient. Thank you for a great stay.
Everything about this rental was perfect. It has two nice sized bedrooms, with comfortable beds. The kitchen was very functional, and there's even a gas grill on the back porch. Also, management graciously came and let me back in when I managed to lock myself out! The location is great for quick access to the Palmer Event Center, and it's in a nice neighborhood with a park within short walking distance. It was a great experience!
Loved the house. No clutter, clean, cool and perfect for me and my daughter. Lovely neighborhood. We walked everywhere and took Ubers to our dinner location. They did allow us to check-out an hour later which was awesome. Great back yard and perfect weather.
My family and I live in the same South Austin neighborhood and have rented several different properties for visiting relatives. None have come close to matching Mellow Yellow #1. It's clean, well appointed, and with 2 sizable bedrooms, has the space everyone needs. My 70-something mother and aunt found it absolutely perfect. And the property management is simply fantastic! We ran into an issue with the lock code not working on check-in. Despite it being a holiday afternoon, our call was answered immediately and the issue resolved within moments. No question, we'll be reserving this property for every future out-of-town guest!
This house was so close to all the activities we had planned while in Austin. Everything was very clean, comfortable and well stocked. We will definitely stay here again when we visit Austin!
