Beautiful, centrally-located guest apartment with private entrance! Located in charming Rosedale neighborhood close to UT campus and easy access downtown. Walk to dozens of restaurants, coffee houses, bars, shopping and a park with swimming pool! The suite has a queen bed, comfy sofa, mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee maker.
The private gate is lined in jasmine (smells awesome in the spring) as well as palm and pecan trees. Walk up the private staircase to the apartment where the room is furnished with a plush, queen-sized bed and extra long couch to sleep up to 3 people. We can provide an air mattress for a 4th person. There is also free Wifi, K-Cup coffee machine, a full bathroom with great water pressure, microwave, mini fridge and a sink with garbage disposal.
Guests will be given the passcode for WiFi and there is free street parking. You can also hang out in our backyard on the porch swing with our lovable mutt, Barkley.
Interaction with Guests
We give our guests as much privacy as they want. We can provide restaurant and activity recommendations for all of our guests.
Rosedale neighborhood is very walkable to shops, bars and restaurants on Lamar and Burnet and also has a neighborhood park with tennis courts, basketball courts, baseball field and a swimming pool. It's very close to UT campus and downtown with easy access to MoPac, but it is a quiet neighborhood with a lot of families.
There is a bus route that goes straight downtown that runs every day for $1 per trip. The closest stop is a couple blocks away.
Other Things to Note
We are licensed for short term rentals in the city of Austin (which is required for all renters).
No smoking. No pets without talking with us about them first. And don't break stuff… I think that's probably a given.
We never met Chris, but leading up to, during, and after our stay he was a very communicative host. The apartment was very clean and comfortable; looked just like the pictures! The apartment is located near a busy road, but the windows are well insulated and kept out all the noise. There was a bus stop very close to the apartment, so it was easy for us to access downtown without a rental car. We had a lovely stay!
Staying at Chris's was great! The apt was really cute and comfortable! The bathroom and little kitchenette were fully equipped with anything you could need!
Our experience in Chris's home in Austin was warm and welcoming! He greeted us with his dog, and immediately made us feel at ease. Chris and his wife are as nice as they get. The apartment is located on top of their garage and it is spacious, clean, and VERY comfortable for a couple.
Everything was as described, overall nice people to deal with. I recommend this place
This apartment is lovely and spacious and has a great bathroom. There is everything you would need...
We enjoyed staying there and felt like home !! The only little negative point is the street which is loud because of traffic.
The apartment is very nice, comfortable and very relaxing. There are nice restaurants on walking distance.

We love hosting guests and offer complete privacy, as well as recommendations if you'd like them. We love being able to share our awesome city with the world!
