About This Listing
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.
Kitchenette has everything you need: microwave, mini-fridge, dishes, and coffee maker.
My mom has stayed here twice now and loved it both times. The apartment is beautiful, clean, and brightened with lots of natural light. The hosts have also been consistently friendly and very attentive in making the apartment comfortable for their guests. My mom has told me repeatedly she would recommend this Airbnb apartment to her friends. Thank you, Chris!
We had a great experience staying at Chris's. The room was just as pictured- clean, comfortable, and perfect for the two of us. Chris was very responsive and available to answer my questions. The apartment is centrally located and within close proximity to downtown as well as the campus area (we were in town for an event at the Frank Erwin center). We had a rental car and were able to drive to all locations in a very short amount of time. I would highly recommend a stay in this apartment.
Very nice place - exactly what I was looking for and true to the description. Small and comfortable, nicely outfitted, just right.
I can't comment on the hosts because I never saw them. Too bad, I would have liked to have at least said hi - and it sounds as though they have a great dog - but its also testimony to how smooth the setup is, and how private.
Such a nice cool apartment. We absolutely loved it. Chris was always responsive and the apartment is in an awesome location. Minutes away from all the fun Austin stuff to do. Too bad we didn't get to meet Chris, but we had an awesome time. I wish we stayed longer. If you have the chance to come to Austin, contact Chris - you'll love it.
The room was a great space that offered privacy and comfort. It was a great neighborhood within walking distance of restaurants and shops and close to downtown.
