The space

Our apartment is perfect for the budget traveler. It's very clean and with about 500 square feet it is spacious enough for 2 guests, although there is a fold out couch if you need it. My wife and I lived here before buying the main house on the property. It was a great place to live and gave us many happy years. I'm sure you will love it too!

Located near Congress and Riverside, just a few blocks away from longtime Austin establishments such as Guero's Taco Bar, The Continental Club, Allen's Boots, and many other amazing restaurants, shops and music venues. The South Congress bridge, where the bats emerge at sunset every evening from March to October, is just a few more blocks away and leads directly into the downtown area only a mile from our apartment, all within walking distance. You can pick up the hike and bike trail at the bridge as well, and it runs for many miles around Lady Bird Lake. Public bike rentals are within a five minute walk on Congress Avenue.

We do provide off street parking for one car.

Rate includes 15% state and local hotel taxes for stays shorter than 30 days.

Interaction with guests

We may or may not be here when you arrive but we will make sure to leave the door unlocked and the apartment ready for you when you get here.

Other things to note

I have the best wifi range extender that money can buy but I have heard from our guests that it can be a little spotty, especially in the back of the apartment further away from our house. We do apologize in advance for any inconvenience. I am looking into ways to run a physical line from the house to the apartment but this is a fairly major project that will have to take place sometime in 2017.

Location Location Location! Great spot on South Congress. Next to the "rent-a-bikes". Perfect for 1-2 people. Clean. Great value.

John's place was a nice and cosy stay, a short walk from the main strip of South Congress. Check in and communication was great. John and his family gave us privacy but was available for any questions we had and were nice enough to let us leave our broken suitcase at their property. The WiFi signal was a little weak on our phones and didn't carry through to the bedroom but was fine on the laptop. Otherwise no complaints! Highly recommend.

My wife and I stayed here four nights and loved it. Great location within a few minute walk of South Congress and all that street has to offer. The place was clean and cozy, with everything we needed for our stay. We briefly met John in the driveway and he was nice and accommodating. I'd recommend this place for someone wanting to get out of the hubbub of downtown who still wants to be close to good bars and restaurants.

A very nice little house in a good atmosphere. Just a few blocks from south congress with a lot of restaurants and boutiques. You can easily get around the city aswell, even without a car.

John's place is a very good place to stay while visiting Austin. A great location that is near cool hangouts and eating that you can easily walk to. Located in a very quiet neighborhood with lots of character and winding streets. But close to everything unique and interesting in downtown ATX.
