Interaction with Guests
It is always a treat to meet guests at checkin, visit with them in the garden or even share a glass of wine. Alternatively, it is not unusual for guests to check themselves in & out with communications all by text. Although I miss meeting them in person, this method works remarkably well too.
I often travel for work & fun. If I am out of town, there is always a "property manager" available on site.
Hyde Park is close to downtown, UT, 6th street and all the other "action". But it is an historic neighborhood one hundred year old homes with large trees and lively gardens; making a quiet get away.
We are 1 block from the 1 or 5 bus routes that go right downtown & run every 10 minutes. We are also on the UT free transit bus.
Getting here from the airport:
Taxis run between $25-30 and is fast.
Supershuttle is a minibu that is shared with 2-3 other peopIe, costs about $15 and is medium slow.
The city bus #101 is only $1 and very slow.
I highly recommend Car2Go - a shared vehicle service as an alternative to renting a car. You can even get them to and from the airport (costs about $10). but you have to sign up in advance.
Other Things to Note
What to expect.
We really want you to have a great stay & go out of our way to make it happen. But we are not a hotel, so there is more chance of unexpected things happening, both good & bad.
The nearest hotels are a Double Tree & La Quinta & the rooms cost twice as much. They are in the middle of government buildings with few nearby attractions.
The apartment is walkable to loads of fun things and is in a tree filled neighborhood.
However, with hotels you know exactly what you are getting & there are no surprises.
Make yourself at home!

Great stay at Tracy's apartment for a long weekend in Austin with my family. Perfectly located and close to everything we wanted to do while in town.
Although we never actually got to meet Tracy while in town, she was very responsive to all communications ahead of our arrival and got us in to the apartment on time with no issues.
Highly recommend for anyone visiting Austin...
This is a lovely apartment in a quiet, safe neighbourhood a stone's throw away from restaurants, shops and the university. It has a balcony and plenty of space, and is clean and well kept. I have stayed in Hyde Park a number of times and I would definitely stay here again. Tracy was a friendly and thoughtful host - when the water was turned off by the city for a few hours she offered to bring bottled water, which was very kind. Apartment can be easily cooled - important in Austin - with two large window A/C units. Highly recommended!
We loved the garden lights and outdoor seating at Tracy's apartment. The space is very comfortable, quiet and super clean. There was a handy guide for local restaurants and shopping. Ceiling fans and window A/C to boot!
We had a great stay at the Craftsman 1920 apartment in Hyde Park! The accommodations were perfect, the apartment is adorable, and the surrounding neighborhood was fun to explore. We'd stay there again anytime we're back in Austin!
It was a wonderful experience to stay in Tracey's apartment. Everything was as described, but the beautiful garden and the lovely smell of the wisterias in bloom added on to the experience! Warmly recommended.
Great apartment in Hyde Park! It was very clean and cozy and in a very convenient location (it's a very cheap uber to downtown / the east side). We didn't spend much time in the backyard, but it was beautiful.
We had a wonderful stay at Tracy's apartment. The location is wonderful, the space is lovely and she even stocked the kitchen with beer and coffee upon our arrival. Overall, I was very pleased with our stay and wouldn't hesitate to book with Tracy again.
