Cook up something delicious in the fully equipped kitchen, then enjoy it together at the long breakfast bar. Of course, there's always the option of the enclosed backyard, which is 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! 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. 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. Of course, downtown Austin is just over three-and-a-half miles to the north.

The Mellow Yellow is the perfect little house for a great stay in Austin! Its in the ideal location- a nice quiet neighbourhood, but a five minute drive into the city. Easy to find, easy to get in and out of. And Brooke was also super accommodating to our travel plans! Would definitely stay here again!

We enjoyed our stay. Clean and extremely convenient! We were in the middle of everything! Would recommend this place for a quiet place to stay yet close to all the excitement. Beds were comfortable. Nicely remodeled. Nice backyard even though it was cold and rainy. We will definitely stay here again.

I was very pleasantly surprised at my experience at Mellow Yellow #2. It was perfect for me in every way. Clean, comfortable, private, well-equipped, easy to get to - I liked everything about Mellow Yellow #2. Not only would I stay there again, but I would work my trip around its availability. This was my first time renting instead of a hotel. I am sold!

From initial enquiry I was kept fully informed of all facts concerning payment, arrival/departure details for the rental n a professional manner. The property was easy to find and gain access to, finding a clean and tidy environment This is a comfortable home for a family holiday with everything one requires to have an enjoyable stay, with value for money and lots more freedom than staying in an hotel! No hesitation recommending this property and would certainly use again.

This is the third time that we have used Emerson Guest Properties for our getaways to Austin. Brooke is always very easy to work with. The app for your phone is a real plus! The Mellow Yellow #2 was very nice and clean and reasonable priced. The location was also great. We needed a later check out and Brooke was able to accommodate us. We also brought our dog and she really enjoyed walks in this very nice neighborhood. We will continue to use Emerson for our home rental needs!

We frequently visit our son and daughter in law in Austin. This was our first stay at the Mellow Yellow and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The unit is very cozy and comfortable. The backyard was perfect for our small dog to roam while we enjoy sitting on the patio. The location was very convenient and there are many shopping centers. Everything about this rental was good, the management was well organized and we have no complaints. We plan on staying here for our future visits to Austin.

Friends and I stayed at this cute little 2 bedroom house in a quiet neighborhood right off of S Lamar street. The house had everything that we could have asked for, tv with lots of cable channels, full kitchen, plenty of silverware, plates and cups, lots of towels and good AC. The location was ideal to get to multiple places around Austin.
. Sep 2018
The home was great! Very clean, and fully stocked with everything we needed to make us feel at home---fresh, fluffy towels, coffee, and ample pillows and blankets. Brooke was so helpful and responsive prior to my stay, and the check-in/check-out process was a breeze. The location is perfect too!

This place is clean, cozy, and perfect for two couples that want to enjoy the sights of Austin. Love the location near Barton Springs and a quick Lyft downtown (thanks for the code!). The private backyard was a nice touch too but due to the rain we didn't fully enjoy it. The beds were comfy, the shower was great and they even have a washing machine and dryer which came in handy after we got wet in the rain!

This property was a perfect. It has easy access from Lamar and was clean and comfortable. The backyard was a nice surprise! I will highly recommend this anyone seeking a cool place near so many fun places.

We just moved to Austin from Houston and our new house wasn't ready quite yet, so we stayed at Mellow Yellow for 3 weeks with our 1 year old. It was a great place for us to stay! The neighborhood was walkable and there were lots of restaurants and shopping close by. I don't think I drove more than 10 minutes to get anywhere. It was also well equipped with pretty much everything we needed! Brooke provided a high chair, pack n play and sheets, and even baby shampoo! It was also great to have a yard to let our dog out, and I didn't have to worry about her escaping because it was well fenced in. Only down side is that if you have noisy neighbors next door you can hear them quite well. But we were there for 3 weeks, so we had a variety of neighbors! Overall, we were really pleased with our time there and will for sure recommend it to anyone who needs a great place to stay.

I wanted a place that was close to Lamar and close to the Food & Wine Festival. This was it.Clean, good quality fixtures/appliances, decorated cute...For four adults it was tight with one bathroom. No tvs in the bedrooms.
. Aug 2018
Perfect spot and house for the weekend! The backyard was great and house had everything that was needed. Would recommend for future guests!

We stayed here for UT graduation weekend and it was perfect! The location was so convenient to get to the festivities, restaurants and stores. The house was well stocked with everything we needed. We will definitely stay here again!

It was the nicest and the cleanest little place ever! The awesome details of coffee, fresh smelling towels and the beds were so proper and clean, just AWESOME!

Mellow Yellow #2 was very clean and well-maintained, with everything in great condition. The TV has cable, all the appliances work, the kitchen is stocked with some essentials, there are plenty of towels and the backyard patio is great to hangout on. The property managers were very professional and easy to get a hold of.

This is our favorite place to stay when we come to Austin to visit. The duplex is spotless and the decor is very attractive. After being out for the day we loved coming back to The Mellow Yellow to relax. The location for us was perfect, shopping nearby and very convenient for our daily trek to visit family in northwest Austin. We were thoroughly pleased with our stay here and have already booked this location for our next stay.

This rental was wonderful! Stayed with friends in the adjacent rental for an Austin wedding. Great place - convenient to everything, we'll kept up, clean and contemporary! Also we'll stocked with kitchen items , lovely towels and other amenities - would definitely recommend!
. Aug 2018
We stayed here for a family wedding and could not have asked for a better 'home base' for 4 adults (including a 90 year old) and a toddler. The house was clean and comfortable, not to mention beautifully decorated. We had everything we could have asked for, from a pack n' play for the baby to morning coffee to a hair dryer. The laundry is a great bonus, as well as the welcoming back yard. Check-in and check-out were a breeze. Great experience - couldn't recommend it more.

A perfect location in the midst of expanding growth, Mellow Yellow remains comfortable, convenient, and quiet. Updates welcome guests...highly recommend.

Our daughter got married in Austin last week and we rented the Mellow Yellow since it was close to the venue and other amenities. It was absolutely perfect and extremely well-appointed with everything we needed. Weddings can be hectic for families and this place provided a relaxing retreat to come back to. Emerson Guest Properties was very accommodating and professional....I highly recommend staying here and would do it again!

The Mellow Yellow is our favorite place to stay when we are visiting in Austin. We have rented this place several times and have always enjoyed our stay. We love the decor and the unit is always spotless and well maintained and an added bonus is a fenced backyard with a BBQ and outdoor furniture. All the comforts of home!

We were very pleased with the location and overall cleanliness of this property. We especially enjoyed the fact that we were close to Zilker Park and walking trails. Numerous restaurants, shopping venues, and the library were within an easy drive as well. Since we were traveling with a small dog, the fenced-in back yard was a real plus! We had the opportunity to meet some of the neighbors, and felt safe walking/exploring the area.
