Great location, clean, quiet, walking distance to UT and downtown.
*SXSW 2015 minimum 4- night stay*
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. (Tide 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.
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!
Great experience! Alexis was incredibly welcoming. I've been staying in lots of airbnbs for work over the course of the past year and she was easily one of the best hosts I've had. Very clean, inviting, and well stocked apartment in a great location! I'd love to stay here when I return to Austin.
This was my first airbnb experience and I think I might be spoiled already. Alexis was amazing at making sure all the little things creature comforts were there for me - including drinks and treats waiting in the fridge. She has labeled EVERYTHING... so it's easy to find what you need and feel at home right away. Wonderful stay, wonderful host.
This is the best airbnb experience I've had yet, and I've had some great ones! First, Alexis's response time was amazingly fast, and she was so helpful in offering recommendations in the area. In addition, she went above and beyond in assisting me in planning a few surprises for our stay. My partner and I were so comfortable in the clean, nicely decorated apartment. The neighborhood was cute, peaceful, and walkable to downtown. The apartment was well-stocked and had all the instructions we needed. I will try to stay here again if we go to Austin in the future.
Really lovely apartment that was clean, comfortable and had everything I needed. Alexis was also really considerate and left drinks/snacks/bagels in the kitchen for me to use which was really appreciated! Good location too, around $5 uber ride to get most places in downtown.
Apartment was everything advertized and more. We had a great trip, and Alexis was wonderful in communicating with out throughout. Highly recommend.
This was an excellent, convenient, clean apartment, exactly as described, very near to the UT Austin campus, and about 7 minutes walk to the Harry Ransom Center, where I was doing research. Alexis was great with communication before and during the visit.
The apartment is wonderful - light and clean and well stocked. Alexis was very helpful too! I hope to at her place again when I return to Austin.

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 then migrated out to Austin in the 90s. After leaving to live in L.A., Houston, San Diego, and Seattle, I made my way back to Austin and am so happy to be back where I belong!
