Great location, clean, quiet, walking distance to UT and downtown.
This completely renovated condo is in the heart of downtown Austin. Walking distance to Campus, the AT&T Conference Center, the Erwin Center, the Capitol, and even 6th street. Granite counter tops in the kitchen and bathroom, bamboo floors, and beautiful new fixtures. Snacks and beverages await you when you arrive. Nicer than a hotel room with all the conveniences of home.
Technically a studio, the bedroom area has been nicely appointed (queen size bed) and separated from the living room with curtains. This lends visual privacy in case you have 2 more friends staying in the living area. There are plenty of linens, extra pillows, throw blankets, and even a super-comfy futon that folds into an almost-full-size bed to use with all the linens and foam topper in the closets. Make yourself at home watching TV (local channels, DVD player, and Netflix), using the wireless internet, or cooking a meal in the beautiful kitchen with all new, state-of-the-art appliances. There is a laundry room next door to the condo where you can do your laundry for free. (Detergent pods and bounce sheets provided!)
Please note: this unit is on the third floor and there is no elevator. There is also no pool or play area for small children, and the condo is not baby-proofed.
Nueces Street is a quiet street with plenty of parking (free after 6 and on Sundays) and feels light years away from the hustle and bustle of the city. There is free parking under the building (one assigned spot - reserved for your use) and the building itself could not be any quieter. You will truly enjoy this downtown oasis!
If you are in town for a conference at the AT&T center, you will be happy to know it is only 6 easy blocks away.
Four blocks from the UT campus, eight blocks from the Erwin Center, eleven blocks or a $5-$7 cab ride to 6th street or the football stadium. The Austin Convention Center is just about a mile and a half away, for a leisurely stroll through downtown or a $7-$8 cab ride. Starbucks and Wells Fargo are 2 blocks in one direction, sandwich shops and pizza 2 blocks in the other. There is a 7-11 in both directions. Great Indian food and neighborhood pubs in easy walking distance. This home away from home is near everything you need!
A note on check-in and check-out - it's as easy as can be at Downtown Oasis 2. While I love meeting my guests, often it works out easier to give you the code to the electronic lock. So it is never a problem if you need to arrive late or leave early - there is a solution in place!
Please let me know how many people will be staying and if you need the futon bed made up in advance. There is no charge for extra guests (max 4) but it helps me allot enough time for cleaning and preparation when I have proper information.
I am fully licensed by the city of Austin, and my rates include the 15% occupancy tax I pay to Austin and the state of Texas. Airbnb adds their own fees on top of my rates.
*Downtown Oasis 2 is right next door to Downtown Oasis, which is also my property. They are very similar in layout and identical in amenities.
**Some weekends and special events are at higher rates. SXSW has a 5 night minimum stay. F1 and ACL have a 3 night minimum.**
I provide the following amenities for your stay:
Clean sheets, extra blankets
Soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash
Iron and ironing board
A few snacks and drinks to welcome you!
Please treat the Downtown Oasis 2 as you would your own home. There are dumpsters in the garage for you to throw out your trash at the end of your visit. If you leave dishes in the dishwasher, please run it before you leave so I can unload it when I come to clean. Place all towels in the hamper in the closet. Please be certain that I have your cell number before your stay so that I will be certain to answer your calls or texts promptly. The complex is super quiet - you won't hear a thing your entire stay - so please help keep it that way. The Downtown Oasis 2 is such a peaceful, quiet place. I know you're going to love it!
We really enjoyed our stay here. Everything was as advertised, the unit was very clean and well prepared. Alexis even left us some snacks which were much-needed after traveling. Walking distance to Starbucks, 7-Eleven, and a fantastic brunch/lunch (maybe dinner too?) restaurant - Arturo's on 17th Street. $5 Uber ride to downtown.
We would definitely rebook if we were in Austin again.
My friends and I had a fantastic experience at this location. Alexis was the perfect hostess and thought of everything. She left maps, books and magazines all about Austin and a whole binder full of things to do in town. She also provided snacks and drinks for us and made it super easy to check in and out. The apartment was cozy and set up perfectly on our arrival. Alexis had extra blankets and pillows along with all the toiletries we needed. For those who don't mind a nice walk, it is easy to get to downtown and other areas and is also an inexpensive uber or taxi ride to just about anywhere. There is a Starbucks and areas to dine within walking distance. She shopped, kayaked, hiked, rented bikes and ate some great meals during our visit to Austin. I highly recommend a trip to this great city as well as staying at this location. You won't be disappointed.
We had a wonderful stay at Downtown Oasis 2! The location was perfect for getting to all the great stuff around Guadalupe but was still really super quiet and relaxing.
The house was super clean and organized and Alexis made us feel really welcome with snacks and a sweet note. She was also very responsive with questions.
Alexis was a marvelous hostess and really made my boyfriend and I feel welcome! You can tell she has put a lot of thought into making her place welcoming and easy to navigate. She provided us with information about where to go and eat and was always very prompt in answering my questions. Would definitely stay there again!
The place was great! When I walked in, there was a personalized note welcoming me and some treats for my stay, including some healthy snacks, quick breakfast, and a little bit of candy :-). There was coffee for my stay and well-marked cabinetry with everything I needed from plastic bags to a first aid kit. The location was convenient to UT, downtown, and felt like a safe neighborhood. Alexis was ultra responsive and here instructions were clear.
This was a really impressive airbnb with regard to the effort and thought put into the experience. Thanks, Alexis!

Thank you for looking at my listings: Downtown Oasis and Downtown Oasis 2 in Austin, Texas.
A little about me: My passions range from books, movies, animals, and anything Austin to traveling the world. I've seen many of the great sights here in the U.S. and have also managed to visit Canda, Mexico, Australia, several places in the Caribbean, many countries in Europe, and a variety of countries in Asia. Singapore is probably my favorite country, but just to visit!
I grew up in Connecticut and lived in Austin, L.A., Houston, San Diego, and Seattle. Austin was and is my favorite place to live. It's home.
