The Provident is the perfect spot for exploring Austin
Built in 1887, this spacious historic loft comprising the entire third floor of one of Austin’s few remaining 19th-century buildings is now available as a unique vacation rental in the heart of Austin’s entertainment and business district.
The building on East 5th Street got its start as the “Provident Hotel” operating from 1890 to 1920 as a “first class” hotel. Some 100 years later, the Provident, managed by Top Trip Rentals, is available again for travelers exploring the tourist mecca of Austin. Completely remodeled while retaining the building’s original charm, this home boasts an enviable location at 5th and Brazos Streets.
This home is an ideal location for friends traveling together looking for a stylish launching pad to explore Austin or corporate groups wanting to have a downtown presence while in town on business. The Provident is walking distance to hundreds of bars, restaurants and cultural landmarks including the HandleBar (next door), the Paramount Theater, World-famous 6th Street, the Austin Convention Center, SXSW, the ACL shuttle, the Texas State Capitol and hundreds of bars and restaurants.
This spectacular space features high ceilings, exposed brick, original hardwood floors and floor-to-ceiling windows with treetop views of 5th Street. The Provident home retains the classic loft feel with an open floor plan that features 3 bedrooms, 2 living spaces, a modern kitchen and 2 baths.
The views out of the Provident’s floor-to-ceiling windows offer a similar scene of a bustling downtown that 19th-century guests would have seen—the world-famous clubs and bars of Sixth Street that have been entertaining saloon goers and bar hoppers for more than 100 years of Austin’s history.
