The Cozy Allendale Apartment Hideaway is a 1 bedroom apartment over our detached garage in North Central Austin.
Our lovely one bedroom apartment is situated in the trees over our detached garage. It is a peaceful retreat with one bedroom, a private bath room with shower and full kitchen. The bedroom has a very comfy queen sized bed with fresh cotton sheets. The main room has a dinning table and sitting area. The couch in the sitting area can be another place to sleep and pulls out into a sofa bed that is great for kids. We can comfortably accommodate up to 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 kids.
The apartment has a flat screen television and stereo. There is high speed wireless internet available to guests.
The kitchen is equipped with a full size fridge/freezer and ice maker. There is a new stove top and oven, as well as microwave and coffee maker for your convenience. The dining table can seat up to six.
We are in North Central Austin (Allendale neighborhood), a 15-20 minute drive to downtown. We are in the Car 2 Go radius and just a few blocks from a Capital Metro bus stop. We do not have private parking for apartment guests, but there is plenty of free parking on the street in front of our house.
Our quiet tree lined street is part of an established neighborhood with lots of Austin charm and many interesting restaurants and shops on Anderson Lane and Burnett Road.
We often have family visiting between November and April. Because of this I will leave this time of the year blocked out on our calendar until I know their travel plans. Once we know exactly when they are coming I can open more dates up.
Interaction with Guests
We are happy to give dirrections or advice about activities and restaraunts. We are a busy family and often on the go, so we do not spend a lot of time hanging out with our guests.
I love our neighborhood for the big beautiful trees. We are an easy drive to downtown and many great restartaunts, but still quiet and tucked away from the noise and comotion of busier parts of town.
We have had guests use the bus and there is a stop near our house. It is easier to stay here with a car.
Other Things to Note
Our apartment does not share any walls with our house so it is very private and pretty well sound insulated. It has it's own heater and air conditioner with programable thermostat.
ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING
Please park on the street in front of our house.
ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING
We are in a quiet residential area so it is not a great place for large crowds and lots of noise, especially late at night.
Because this is our home, we really like to know who is staying there. We ask that you not bring home overnight guests without discussing it with us before hand.
Great spot, very cozy, easy to get around. The bedroom is separated from the main room, which is great. Also, the kitchen is fully stocked with everything you will need to be comfortable. We found the location to be very peaceful but also very central to the main sights in Austin!
I have stayed at a variety of locations all over Austin, and this by far is the coziest and most quiet. Sara and Fredrik have a beautiful and very clean apartment above the garage. You will also meet the kitty cats.
Sara had everything ready when we arrived and she greeted us once we were settled in. The unit was perfect for out needs and the location provided easy access to downtown.
We had a wonderful stay at Sara and Fredrick's place. It was easy to find and the neighborhood was quiet and nice and we were about 10 minutes away from everything we wanted to do, including going downtown. The place itself was delightful. It had everything we were looking for in a place to stay. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if my travels ever bring me back to Austin.
This is the best place we have found so far in our 12 years of visiting Austin. The independence of this apartment, the convenience to basic stores, handy to our daughters, cleanliness, cheerful atmosphere and great hosts make this a gem we plan to be our first choice next visit.
The kitchen was small and handy making fixing meals easy. It was well equipped for my needs. Loved the Greek shower and found the bed comfy!
Location is in a pretty neighborhood that seems safe. We like to walk and would feel safe doing that here
Having an apartment separate from our hosts was a big plus as we didn't feel as though we were imposing. However the hosts seemed very warm and accommodating.
My daughter would love to have such a great place for us. Both of our daughters were impressed with this place too
I am a native to Austin and enjoy raising my children here. I love outdoor activities and am happy to talk about all the great places to hike and swim around Austin.
