About This Listing
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.
Sara was great! She answered all our questions promptly and gave us great food recommendations! The space is quiet and perfect for two people. Great kitchen and privacy. Highly recommended!
Beautiful neighborhood and a great place to stay for our weekend in Austin! Just perfect for us! And the lightening bugs! So fun! Thanks for having us Sara and Fredrik!
I really enjoyed the cozy garage apartment. It was quiet and in a great location to explore Austin! Sara was a great host and quick to respond to any questions we had during our stay. The neighborhood pool was an awesome afternoon getaway since the natural springs were all flooded :(
This cute yellow apartment on top of the garage was a pleasant stay. We didn't get a chance to meet Sara but we met her husband on our arrival. He was very kind and made us feel very comfortable. The apartment was a great size and everything we needed was available, including a full kitchen. Although we didn't put any of this to use, the amount of space provided was great. The only thing I would have to say that was slightly uncomfortable was the bed itself. Otherwise, a great first experience at an AirBnb!
