Beautiful, centrally-located guest apartment with private entrance! Located in quiet 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, coffee maker and air mattress upon request.

The space

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 queen-sized bed and extra long couch to sleep up to 3 people. We can provide an air mattress for a 4th person. We also provide Wifi, K-Cup coffee machine with coffee, 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 in our neighborhood. You can also hang out in our backyard on the porch swing with our lovable mutt, Barkley.

I had a perfect stay at the garage apartment. It was cozy, and somehow felt tucked away despite being on the corner of a busy street - the entrance makes you feel like you're staying somewhere tropical, despite being in central Texas! The apartment was very clean, stocked with coffee, paper supplies, and extra linens/towels, and the bed was super comfy. It also was walking distance to a number of food trucks, a great market/liquor store, and some Austin staples like Pinthouse Pizza, Tacodeli, The Flying Saucer, and other restaurants and bars. Check in/out was a breeze, and in fact the host was super responsive and accommodating when I needed to stay a few extra days at the last minute. Staying here was a great introduction to Austin, and I would 100% recommend it!!

The things we loved most about Chris's place was wonderful! Everything from the attention to detail to the creative uses of space and the quiet neighborhood. It was very welcoming, accommodating and cozy. There weren't any issues and Chris was quick to respond to any message or request. The only downside that I noticed was that this hidden gem was a little too hidden for driving services (taxis, Austin ride and Uber all drove past initially). There was plenty of space and it was affordable!

Everything was totally great. The place was clean, spacious, private and in great location. Chris has also been really kind and flexible about extension. There were also many towels, and cofee and wifii. We really enjoyed being there, it is a lovely place and would definitely recommend to everyone.
