The Space

Lovely renovated garage apartment 10 blocks from downtown in hip East Austin. Walk 15 minutes to east side bars! Free parking on street and behind front house. Several easy bus lines run right out front. Walking distance to Town Lake - great running trail and kayak/canoe rentals.

The place is around the corner from a famous Austin texmex spot, food trailers, and other new foodie restaurants. There are corner stores within 1 block and a grocery store just a short drive away.

The apartment sleeps two people comfortably in a queen bed - can offer a full size air mattress if you want to fill the space. There is wireless internet, a full bathroom and full kitchen with oven/stove/fridge/french press.

There's also a porch with a table to relax under Texas skies - a great outdoor space for perfect Austin evenings!

  • Whitney's place is awesome and I had a great time there. Communicating was easy and effortless and the place is just as cute and cozy as the photos. Whitney has done a great job of blending Austin-chic decor with comfortable amenities to create a lovely home. The neighborhood is great, too! You can easily walk to some great taquerias and the river is just a quick stroll away. I recommend trying Juan in a Million for breakfast - they are one of my favorite Austin spots and just a couple blocks away. Overall - great experience. Thanks Whitney!

  • I stayed at the Pecan Treehouse for 3 nights, it had a lovely decor, comfy bed and was as advertised. The location was great as only a short drive to downtown. Whitney was a great host, always quick to respond to any of my questions and helpful with providing a few recommendations on the area.

  • We stayed at Whitney's place during the first week of SXSW, and had a brilliant time. Her apartment is small but perfectly formed, containing both everything we needed (reliable wifi, a coffee grinder for the perfect morning brew) and everything we didn't know we wanted but did (fantastic eclectic art and curated objects).
    The neighborhood is pretty, peaceful and everyone we met was amazingly friendly and welcoming. The local restaurant - Juan in a Million, best name ever! - is the perfect place for breakfast tacos or lunch enchiladas, extremely good value and fantastic service and quality. If you want to work up an appetite for breakfast, there's a great running route down along the river. And getting into the centre is a price of cake: Downtown is a quick 10 minute bus ride or bike ride, or leisurely 30 minute walk. There was nothing we didn't like about The Pecan treehouse, Whitney is a great host, and we hope to return next year - highly recommended!

  • Sarah and I had a great stay at Whitney's treehouse. Lovely accommodations, comfortable bed, clean, fresh linens - we couldn't have been happier. Easy off street parking. All kinds of things to see and do nearby, great restaurants. And Whitney was fantastic. She met us at a convenient time to check-in, was super nice, and gave us great recommendations for local eats. Definitely recommend this spot to others visiting Austin. Thanks Whitney!

  • My husband and I spent 4 nights at Whitney's place, and had a great time. The place itself is well-decorated and comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet and convenient - Veracruz Taco Trailer was our favorite breakfast spot while we were there, just a couple blocks away. A ton of cool food spots & bars within less than a mile. We didn't get to meet Whitney, but she was very accommodating, especially on pretty short notice of our arrival. I would highly recommend Whitney's place!

  • Whitney was a great host. She was very welcoming and helpful in suggesting fun things for my wife and I to do in Austin. The house was perfect for us and the location was great. Extra points for the decor and having Led Zeppelin II on vinyl! We would definitely stay here again. Thanks Whitney!

  • We stayed at Whitney's for four nights. She was very welcoming in person and provided us with some great suggestions on where to eat and what to check out in the neighborhood. During our stay, we met the owner of the property who was also extremely friendly. Whitney's place is located near bus stops that go downtown and north towards the university. A short walk away on East 6th are tons of great restaurants and bars too. We enjoyed the privacy and quietness of the neighborhood and that we could park our car on the property. We also appreciated that she has a full kitchen as we had anticipated cooking some meals on our trip. However, she did not have a microwave, so we were unable quickly reheat any leftovers we had. Needless, Whitney has a great decorating style which makes her place cozy with personality. She is also very prompt with communication and available to any questions or concerns. I'm excited for the next time I visit Austin as I would highly consider staying at her place again.

  • Although we didn't met Whitney in person, she was super at responding to emails & offering tips for our stay. The apartment is very cute - full of quirky little items - and at the end of a garden so lots of privacy & quiet. Would recommend as a great base to explore the East side of Austin.

  • Whitney - and Whitney's place - are both great. East Austin is the place to stay. Coffee shops and restaurants and easy access to downtown. Although we didn't get to meet Whitney she was accessible and gave us some good tips for Austin. Whitney's place was clean, comfortable and cool (both in style and temperature). Couldn't have asked for a better place. Will stay there again when we are back in Austin.

Good food that's good for you. Good friends that are good to you. I love to travel. I'm interested in places with great eats, interesting stories, and unique finds. I frequent flea markets and vintage sales throughout Central Texas and try to do the same when I travel.
